Nail Art Inspired by Kristin Nohe's Donuts on Blue

Pin It
Kristin Nohe's Spoonflower

I'm not the most creative person in this world, but I do follow and love the work of many other creative people! I've been following Kristin Nohe for 2-3 years on Instagram. She works as an designer for Target and does other little creative, fancy design things on the side. I love her work, it's so cute and quirky!

Spoonflower is an online store that allows you to create your own fabric, or at least that's what I think it is. :P They were having a free swatch sale a few days ago, and I decided - why the hell not. I ordered a swatch of Kristin's Donuts on Blue. What am I going to do with it? IDK. Admire it for it's cuteness? I have a lot of fabric that I have because it's cute... and I have no idea what to do with it - but that's besides the point!

THAT is the point. I really had an itch to recreate her design on my nails. So I did it, last night, on a whim. Obviously it's not perfect or identical to her design, but I think it's adorable :] Plus who doesn't like donuts?! (If you don't, just keep it to yourself. I'm sorry for your soul :[ ). I used China Glaze Kinetic Candy for the base and used various polishes from Zoya, along with mixing my own colors using Zoya polishes to create this mani.

What do you think?! You can find more of Kristin's stuff here (Spoonflower), here (Etsy), and here (website).

Hope you have a fab day!

SALLY HANSEN: Xtreme Wear Violet Voltage

Pin It
Sally Hansen Violet Voltage

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone's week is going well so far :] Today, I have Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Violet Voltage to share with you. I guess this polish has been around since last year (?), so I discovered through Google. I saw this at Walmart and had a $1 off coupon. I was drawn to the pretty purple shimmer in this polish. So I had to have it.


Sally Hansen Violet Voltage

I think this purple polish is super pretty, don't you?  It's a medium purple with bright lighter purple. The shimmer just gives it a little something extra that usual creme polishes don't sport. The shimmer is a lot more apparent when the light hits it. :] I did 2 coats of Violet Voltage. I did add a little thinner to it because it was a bit gross and tick to apply. Adding thinner made it much easier to work with. I feel like I run into this issue usually with Xtreme Wear polishes.


POLISH INFORMATION Brand: Sally Hansen

Price: Xtreme Wear - $2.48}
Where to Find: Where I've seen them: Walmart, Target, Ulta, CVS, Walgreens, various sites online

I nabbed this from a HUGE end cap filled with polishes. It wasn't in any special display or anything. I feel like this is definitely worth grabbing, after you drop a few drops of thinner in it haha!

Have a good one!

YOU POLISH: Custom Decals

Pin It

Hope you're not tired of decals hahah because I have more for you today! Except, these are used as decals instead of stencils because they're a little more intricate in comparison to what I reviewed in the last week.

Lauren of You Polish asked me for ideas and my response was "unicorns, llamas, grumpy cat, and peace signs" and BAM these arrived in my mailbox! So let me share them with you :]

You Polish Unicorn and Cloud Decals

For the unicorn and cloud mani, I used a tie dye plastic bag effect I saw on Instagram (I forget who posted it haha). Basically all you do is put dots of polish on the bag, fold it into each other and smush it against your nail. I used Zoya Rocky, Sinful Colors Lavender, and Revlon Minted. Then I applied the unicorns and magical clouds! For more detailed designs, I recommend using some needle nose tweezers to apply.

You Polish Peace Sign Decals

I was most excited for the peace sign decals! I don't know about you, but I suck butt at drawing circles - with pen or polish. I applied the peace sign over white, filled it in with SquareHue Nantucket (one of my favorite polishes!) then used a dotting tool to make some groovy little flowers. Then, I bordered my nail in Nantucket. I kinda wish I just did a crapton more flowers - oh well! The remaining nails I polished with Nantucket and then topped with Orly Be Brave.

You Polish Monogram Decal

For this mani, I used the monogram decal. I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Grecian Sun and topped it with a Rainbow Honey LE, Heisenberg. Then as an accent nail, I painted my middle finger with Zoya Rocha and applied the monogram decal. I won't lie - this wasn't the easiest decal to place. Mostly because it's in 3 pieces and you have to line it up juuuuust right. Again, needle nose tweezers came in handy!


You Polish Grumpy Cat Decals


I saved the best for last. If you know - or don't know - I have a slllllllllight obsession with Grumpy Cat. I mean, she's on my Facebook cover and my business cards. I was super stoked to have some grumpy decals! I did do a Grumpy Cat mani in the past, and it took a good chunk of time... mostly because I suck at doing animals and people artistically.

I used Tard as a stencil here. I think it looked nicer than the decal itself. Lauren said it was hard to make since all the parts have to be connected, so the eyes were difficult. So - I painted my nail white, top coated it to dry it faster, applied the Grump, polished with SquareHue Swahili Charm, waited until it was tacky and then removed the decal with my tweezers. For the rest of my mani, I polished it with Zoya Sooki and applied the "NO" decals.

Lauren has some fun and unique decals/stencils if you're in the market for some. I had no issues applying these. They're not as flexy as the ones from Glam My Mani but they are easy to use. I really appreciate the detail in her decals.

GLAM MY MANI: Nail Vinyl Review Part II [French Tips, Single Chevrons & Mini Chevrons]

Pin It
Glam My Mani Nail Vinyls

Good afternoon! Today I have the 2nd part of my Glam My Mani review :] If you missed my review and designs from part I, you can find them here! Check out how I used the French Tip, Single Chevron, and Mini Chevron nail vinyls:

Glam My Mani Mini Chevron Nail Vinyls

In this mani, I used the Mini Chevron Nail Vinyls. I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Violet Voltage, applied the vinyls and then alternated filling in the blanks with Sinful Colors Sterling Silver and Purple Alloy. As you can see I still need some practice at removing these haha. It seemed like the Color Foils were kinda hard to work with when pulling off the vinyl. I did get 2 out of 2 nails lookin' fine though! HIGH FIVE LACEY!

Glam My Mani Single Chevron Nail Vinyls

Next, I used the Single Chevron Nail Vinyls to create this negative space mani. I applied a base coat (So the stamping would stick to my nail), applied the vinyl, stamped the lower half, cleaned up the overflow, then painted the rest of my nail with Zoya Charisma (which if you don't own - you should). I used Vivid Lacquer plate VL006 and then used China Glaze Tongue & Chic and a dotting tool for accents. I was going to fill in the space where the decal was, but I ended up really enjoying the space being all nakie!

Glam My Mani French Tip Nail Vinyls

Last but not least are the French Tip Nail Vinyls. I started off with a base of OPI Steady As She Rose and then applied the vinyl to create a French tip. From there, I filled in the space with Shimmer Polish Wendy. Then, I decided I wanted to add a kind of, half-moonish shape using the French Nail decals at the base of my nail. At first I didn't like it, then it grew on me LOL what do ya think?

I hope these posts gave you ideas of how you can use your nail vinyls to create some fun manis! The best advice I can give is to experiment with them. They're a fun, quick, and easy way to spice up any mani.

Overall, I really enjoyed these nail vinyls! I've used a few brands here and there in the past and I felt like these were more flexible and easy to work with. Again, if you missed Part I - you can find it here :]

Glam My Mani Nail Vinyls

Back to nails! I recently shared a giveaway for some nail vinyls from Glam My Mani! They saw I shared and asked if I'd like to review a few on my blog. I can always use more practice with vinyl decals haha. Today I'm reviewing half of the decals. Hope you enjoy the manis I came up with :]

Glam My Mani Stripe Nail Vinyls

For the Stripe Nail Vinyls mani, I sponged on a gradient using Revlon Electrified Web and Spidey Sense (PS: Shout out to Steph for sendin' me these Spiderman polishes!!!). Then, I applied the stripes and did the same gradient in the reverse. I must say, striped vinyls are 10x easier than doing stripes on your own or dealing with freakin' striping tape. Striping tape is da devil.

Glam My Mani Wavy Line Nail Vinyls

For my Wavy Line Nail Vinyl mani, I firs applied Sally Hansen Color Foil Sterling Silver, applied the nail vinyl and then applied China Glaze Keep Calm Paint On. Then, to match the silver polish I added some clear rhinestones! Not 100% sure I like this, I stared at it for awhile and I couldn't decide LOL. I do think these vinyls would be fun for like a drippy ice cream cone mani though!

Glam My Mani Lightning Bold Nail Vinyls

I've been wantin to try some nail vinyls in this shape, but I felt so awkward trying to use them LOL There's SO many different angles to use these Lightning Bolt Nail Vinyls. I'm kinda lol-ing in my head because they look like Z's and I used all Zoya polishes here hahahahha. Anyways, I used the Lightning Bold Nail Decals by applying them over Zoya Wendy and painting on Zoya Ling and Muse. Then, I went back with a striping brush and added a skinnier Z shape with Zoya Harper. I really like how this turned out!

Glam My Mani Chevron Nail Vinyls


Ahhh, the ever so popular Chevron Nail Vinyls! I uploaded this mani the other day. I used Zoya Raven and then did a tie dye design using the Color Club Poptastic Collection. Sadly, when I went to the beach, playin with the dog and digging in the sand gave me some pretty nice tip wear! But have no fear! I could easily save my tie dye design I worked so hard on by covering up the gross parts with the Chevron Nail Vinyls. All I did was apply them and then polished on some more Zoya Raven. Wham, bam, thank ya, ma'am!
