Nicole gets Nailed

Just your average thirty-something nail polish addict sharing my addiction with the world or the 2 friends following me - thanks mom!
Have I mentioned lately how obsessed I am with the dry brush mani?  Yes?  Here it is again with striping tape!  Happy hump day 😀

Solo shot of my #bestietwinnails I did with my favorite @sassypaints2012 I had been wanting to do a mani inspired by @tartecosmetics  golden day & sultry nights eye shadow palette packaging for some time, so glad I got the chance to share that with my Gini!  ps. It was @sassypaints2012 birthday yesterday, please head on over to her IG and wish her a happy one!

#bestietwinnails with my favorite @sassypaints2012 So honored and happy that Gini agreed to do this with me – Gini is the SWEETEST, kindest and all around loveliest person, friend and blogger I have met since starting my nail journey over two years ago.  If you haven’t checked out Gini’s blog, do so now, her nail art is more amazing than she thinks and her swatches are beyond incredible – I mean look at her nails (hers are on the right, by the way), they are impeccable!!  Inspiration came from the joining of our two great minds and mostly from the @tartecosmetics golden day & sultry nights eye shadow palette packaging, which I LOVE!  Can’t wait to do more collabs Gini, you rock!! xx

My first (and last) splatter mani!  Anyone else eat nail polish while doing one of these?  No, just me?  The most unlucky person around?  Ya thought so!  Tip for those trying out the splatter mani - don’t eat the nail polish!!!!

I can’t stop with the dry brush mani’s, so easy and quick!  I used the @chinaglazeofficial City Flourish collection, which I still adore!  Happy Monday :)

Finally got my hands on the missing piece of @maybelline neons LE - Bleached in Peach! So happy I have the whole set and I even have a backup set - who’s still looking for this collection?!?  I used all 7 for this mani, still in love with them all!

This looked so much cooler in my head - I’ve been really digging the dry brush technique lately, it’s good for when I don’t have a lot of time to paint my nails.

Inspired aka totally copied from @nailsbymistyk I loved the originals so much I had to recreate them.  These remind me of sushi or this licorice candies, I think I’m going to try these in different colors, the design is so cool!

It’s been so hot lately, I needed something to cool me down!  And does anyone have any tips for capturing neons?!?  This mani is so much brighter in real life!!!
