Colorful Leopard & Gold

Posted by Starlett Approved at 4:24 PM 0 comments
Hello lovers! How are you? My week didn't go according to plan.  I don't have the complete look post for you today :(.  I still wanted to do a post.  So here's a quick nail art one.

No, my nails did not grow that fast, I wish.  They're actually even shorter than my previous post.  Did some deep cleaning and ruined my nails.  I did these before the watermelon nails.  Took a long time to post it, eh?  These were inspired by my toe separators.  Yes they are THAT cute hehe.  Every time I did a pedicure I thought to myself "I need to do this print on my nails".  It took 2 years but I did it...yeah.  The base polish is Sinful Colors Clementine and for the spots I used Sephora for O.P.I It's My Pink and Sally Hansen Good To Grape.  The studs are from Born Pretty Store...of course! 

I'm going to take this moment to move on to the gold accent nails.  Ummmm...IN LOVE!  This is O.P.I Honey Ryder and I can't stand how gorgeous it is.  It took me forever to own it and I feel so complete now.  I seriously couldn't stop staring at it, very distracting.  If you don't have Honey Ryder I suggest you get up on that.  You won't regret it ;).

Thanks For Stopping By!

Tropical Floral Nail Art

Posted by Starlett Approved at 1:50 PM 1 comments
Hello! Hello! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was very low key, I've been playing a lot of PVZ Garden Warfare and watching The Strain.  I'm seriously hooked.   But I found the strength to pull myself away and do my nails.  I'm so happy I did.  I told you in my last post that I would do one more summer themed nail art and here it is.
Guys! Guys! I am so proud of these.  I've wanted to do a design like this for like forever.  I just never had the balls to sit down and do it.   I thought I would just fail epically.   I'm my own worst critic :/.
The base I used is Sinful Colors New Wave. A gorgeous navy blue cream and a one coater to boot. For the design itself I used acrylic paint.  The biggest discouragement for me when it comes to designs like this is the large amount of colors you need.  Going through my nail polish collection to find the colors I need is exhausting.  But using acrylic paint made that easy.  All the colors I would need is in a nice easily accessible box.
Don't worry I'm still a nail polish junkie.  Right now I'm stalking Ulta.com waiting for the O.P.I Peanuts Collection to release.  I need to get my hands on Where's My Blanket? and To Be Or Not To Beagle.

I hope you like these nails as much I do.  I'm itching to play in makeup so my next post might be a Complete Look/Get Ready With Me post ;). Till next time!

Thanks For Stopping By!
