orly “rage” and essie “a cut above”
i know i just posted a manicure similar to this, but i absolutely loved the rose gold tin foil look. this is 2 coats of rage and 1 coat of a cut above, and its one of my favorite manicures! i love foils with a glitter over top because it really looks like tin foil on your nails
hare polish “dog day dream”
i know i have been posting a lot of hare polish lately but i seriously love this brand. all the polishes have the best formula. this is a raspberry jelly polish with pink and red hexagonal glitter and purple square glitter. amazing polish! if you can grab it off llarowe its so worth it
essie “good morning hope”
this is one of essies breast cancer awareness polishes from this year. while i support the cause i try to buy one of these every year, i don’t love this polish. its a sheer streaky mess! while i love the light pink color, this was 4 coats and i still see bald spots. such a shame!
i’ve done this a few times before, but this is the first with these colors! i used julep “kate” which is a white polish as the base. then i used opi “quarter of a cent cherry” (the red), zoya “shelby” (the pink) and opi “honk if you love opi” (the purple). i think it turned out pretty cool looking
i bought the entire zoya gloss collection this year because i absolutely love jelly polishes. i mean look at this! it looks like a raspberry gummy bear! this is 3 coats and i still see some VNL but thats ok with me. it looked so perfect for fall!
freaking love flakies!!
zoya “shelby” with sally hansen “hidden treasure” over top
this seriously was the coolest combo. i love flakies over pinks because it gives them the perfect orange flash!
i really wish i loved more pinks. i got so many compliments wearing this and it really is such a pretty color, just not “me”. this is 3 coats and almost has a jelly like finish, even though it definitely is a creme polish. very nice girly polish and i know other girls love this!
butter london “rosie lee”
one of my favorite pinks. 2 coats and its completely opaque! an opaque salmon colored microglitter. absolutely amazing but it chips like crazy. at least i got one good day out of this manicure!
i’m not a huge fan of this polish but it looks so pretty i keep trying to make it work. this is 4 coats and there are other baby pinks that are more opaque and easier to work with. but i did want to share this manicure because it looks so nice and squishy!
my first bubblegum pink! can you believe that? i don’t own any pink polishes like this. but i’m in love and i think i might have to get some more. 2 coats and its opaque and this is brand new from the beach collection
butter london “teddy girl” with china glaze crackle “lightning bolt”
its hard to see the crackle … and thats how i like it. i’m not a crackle fan but the subtle color difference seems to make the colors blend a little and almost create a new color!
Deborah Lippmann’s “Candy Shop”! this is from the get the party started set that was sold at nordstroms … i bought mine off amazon and was the most excited about this color. i’m not into pinks, but oooo mmmm ggg … how pretty!! this is like sprinkles on a freaking cupcake! i’m in love
essie “we can do it pink” with opi “teenage dream” and sephora by opi “only gold for me”
i love light cream colors in the summer! because even tho the picture doesn’t show it, i really am pretty tan for my irish skin. so in not direct sunlight the extremely light pink pops off my skin. and you know i can’t just be happy with a regular manicure so i had to add some glitter
