Midweek Manicure // Holiday Red

I made it through today, and the way this week is going, that’s something to be proud of! Is anyone else having a trying week? Let’s take solace in the fact that tomorrow is Friday. TGIF.

Red Glitter Mani

Usually, I am a cream polish kind of girl, but around the holidays I don’t mind a little bit of sparkle. For this Mani, I kept it pretty simple, and just layered two polishes for a nice holiday-appropriate look.

In addition to a base and top coat I used:

Essie E-Nuff is E-Nuff

Essie Leading Lady

Essie Leading Lady and E-Nuff is E-Nuff

One coat of E-Nuff is E-Nuff topped with a coat of Leading Lady and a top coat and I was finished. I really like the richness of the color and the subtle glitter.

Midweek Manicure // Valentine’s Day Nails x2

This week I have two different Valentine’s Day themed mani’s to share.

First is this pink white and red mani that is a sort-of simple twist on a french tip manicure.

Valentine's Day French Tip Mani

Colors used:

V-Day Mani Steps

Next, I tried this cute heart-print mani:

Heart-Print Mani

I used Diva Bride as a basecoat for this mani too, and then used my dotting tool to paint on two dots close to eachother, then dragged the tool down to make a heart shape using Orly Swizzle Stick.

Hope everyone has a happy Valentine’s Day! What will you be wearing on your nails?



Early Midweek Manicure // Holiday Nails

Merry Christmas Eve! I thought I’d post an early “midweek manicure” to show you what I’m wearing on my nails for Christmas.

Essie She's Pampered and Leading Lady

I decided to go simple and glittery. I picked up Essie Leading Lady a few weeks ago and loved the color and sparkle. I painted it on top of a base coat of Essie She’s Pampered which is a nice bright red. What are you wearing on your nails for Christmas??

And feel free to check out some of the other Christmas-inspired nail art I’ve posted in the last few weeks:
