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)!
