Neutral Mix Nail Art

The final product I received for review from Born Pretty Store included these multi shaped silver rhinestones. I decided to go for a muted look this time.
I used OPI – So Many Clowns So Little Time for the base of all of my nails. applied one coat of SephoraX – Chaotic to my middle and thumb nails. I then painted a small daisy on my ring fingers. Afterwards, I applied a small triangle rhinestone followed by two rectangular rhinestones to my index fingers.
My friends loved these nails when I had them on. I even miss them now, seeing these pictures from last week.
You can find the rhinestones at Born Pretty along with plenty of other nail art supplies. Be sure to use my coupon code (CY5J61) if you find any goodies!

Holographic Stream Nail Art

Amongst the products Born Pretty sent me for review, these gorgeous purple holographic studs were included. They look so pretty and sparkly in the sunlight. Unfortunately at the time I took these pictures, the sun was hiding.
I used Nicole By OPI – Show You Care and then used Maybelline – Purple Icon to create a streak down the center of each nail. After those dried, I applied on swipe of China Glaze – Fairy Dust  on top of Purple Icon. I then applied one stud to each nail.
Like I said, these nails looked gorgeous in the sun, and unfortunately, the sun didn’t show up for this little photo shoot.

Rainbow Gear Nail Art

I’ve been so busy with my school work and job that my nails have been out of shape and the effort put into them has been degraded. Luckily, Born Pretty has sent me these really cool rainbow gear decals that look awesome over white polish. I tried them over black  about a week ago and they looked good but not nearly as vibrant as then do on white.
Here, I have them over two coats of OPI – Alpine Snow and the remainder of my nails are simple black french tips that are slightly angled and curved. I like that they are bold, yet do not take away from my accent nails.
I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on them, including a girl I used to go to school with who asked if I actually painted them on. haha.
If your nails have taken a back seat in your busy life, and you’d like to purchase these rainbow cog decals, head on over to Born Pretty Store to look at them and lots of other nail art supplies. Don’t forget to use my coupon code (CY5J61) to get 10% off your order!

Doughnut/Donut Sprinkles Nail Art

Before I begin this post, I’d like to know the difference between ‘donut’ and ‘doughnut’? Is it just a preference in spelling? Does it matter? Is it a country/regional thing? Spellcheck doesn’t seem to care how I spell it.

Anyyyyhow, my final review for the day are these really fun matte glitters! I feel like the possibilities with them are endless! I chose to make a theme of doughnut (donut?) sprinkles out of them this time, but I have a few other ideas in mind for the future.


For all but my ring fingers, I used a base of OPI – Bubble Bath. My ring fingers have two coats of Nicole by OPI – Be Ama-zing!, with the d-nut (that’s what we’re calling it now until I decide which spelling I prefer) made using Finger Paints – Don’t Make a Scene and China Glaze – Mahogany Magic. The blue icing (or is it frosting?) is made using Love and Beauty – Turquoise and the purple is made using Julie G – Dream in Pretty. I individually placed the “sprinkles” (or is it jimmies? Actually, I do know that I prefer to call them sprinkles, so that is one question answered haha) using a dotting tool and top coat.

I am in love with these nails and am totally tempted to buy a phone case with do--- er, uhm, I mean d-nuts on it now. My friend is rubbing off on me an I think I am now addicted to phone cases.

Subtle Bling Nail Art

Upon receiving my package from Born Pretty Store, I was really eager to try out these multi colored rhinestones! They were so pretty I didn’t want to overdo things, so I kept it simple.


I used a base of Orly – Decoded and applied one swipe of a franken glitter polish down the center of each of my nails. to make them a little more notable, I added two small rhinestones surrounding a slightly larger rhinestone on my ring fingers.


These rhinestones were a lot of fun and I got a lot of compliments on them even though the nail art was minimal. If you’d like to order these rhinestones or any other nail art go over to Born Pretty Store and use my coupon code (CY5J61) to get 10% off your order!

Tiger Decal Nail Art

Hello there!

About a week ago I received a package from Born Pretty Store containing these tiger water decals and some other nail accessories for review. The nails in this post look intricate but are super easy and anyone could do them!


I the orange I used was Sally Hansen – Sun Kissed, and the white is OPI – Alpine Snow. as for the tiger stripes, I simply cut the ones I wanted and dunked then in water for around ten seconds, slid them off, and applied them to my nails.



Overall, I thought the decals were a perfect way to add some fun to what would have been a boring manicure! If you’re interested in buying these tiger decals or any other nail art, head on over to Born Pretty Store and be sure to get 10% off your order using my coupon code (CY5J61)!

2014 Graduation Nail Art

Last week I graduated from high school. While as a senior, I only had to go to school two days that week, it was enough for me to want to leave and never go back. haha. So much has happened since I last blogged and I’m not even sure where to start because I feel I owe it to you to let you all know what has been happening and what has hindered me from blogging.
However, this post is not about what has happened, it is about my graduation nails that I threw together for my last day as a senior. My school colors were red and grey, so I tried to be a little matchy :)
I used Nina Ultra Pro – Black for my index finger. The red is Nicole by OPI – Challenge Red-y, the white is OPI – Alpine Snow, and the silver is by LA Colors.
The bows were sent for review by Born Pretty Store. I received a lot of compliments on them and the nails altogether. I applied them simply using top coat. They lasted longer than I thought with simply top coat until I was challenged to move some boxes at work and the white bow got knocked off. No worries though; I was changing them the next day anyhow :)
If you’re interested in buying the super cute bows I used in this mani, you can find them here, along with plenty of other nail art supplies at Born Pretty Store. Be sure to use my coupon code to get 10% off your order!
