Mani-Monday: Golden Hour

afterlight
Here is a little something to cure your Monday Blues (I know mine are crippling!). This week’s Mani-Monday is inspired by that perfect time of day that turns everything gold, sparkling and magic. Many of you may know how obsessed I am with gold these days, it is the perfect tone, it’s modern, clean and luxe. To get this looks I simply put on 3 coats of the Maybelline Color Show polish in Mystic Green (perfectly named!) and then a coat of golden sparkle before topping it off with Seche Vite.

Mani-Monday: Halloween Inspired Nailart

Goulish Greetings, are you in the mood for some spooky good fun? Here is how I created this Halloween inspired nail art:

Nail Art: Halloween

1. Start with an orange base (you may want to use a base coat like Essie’s Grow Faster to prevent staining!). I paint 2-3 coats for an even colour.

2. Next, use a polka-dot/ glitter top coat (I used the one pictured above). To prevent big globs of spots, try to evenly distribute the spots, I start at the base of the nail and drag downwards.

3. I cannot rave enough about Seche Vite Top Coat, it dries amazingly fast, last forever, and gives a shellac type shine and thickness. The best way to apply is to apply a droplet (at the base of the nail), wipe the excess off of the brush and then sweep the brush down the nail.

4. For the grand finale. I added Nails Inc. Matte Top Coat to give a cool texture. I love the way it makes the orange pop!
