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 :)

Neon Mix and Match Nail Art

About a week ago I received some samples for review from Born Pretty Store. I used two of the three samples on my nails for my last week of high school (ever!). I received a lot of compliments on them, especially because they were so bright!


The white I used was OPI – Alpine Snow. The other colors include China Glaze – Flip Flop Fantasy, e.l.f. – Neon Yellow, and Love & Beauty – Orange.

The marquise studs (#2) used on my index finger are from Born Pretty Store, along with the Nail Stamp decal used on my ring finger. I applied the studs using top coat and I applied the decal as if it were a temporary tattoo for your body, by applying it face down to my nail, then adding a wet cotton ball to transfer it.
