You’ll remember that on Instagram and some other social-media platforms, I shared with you photos of me wearing Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure (Glitz & Glamour) - here and here!
I always keep my nail shape very natural, which for me is rounded. But, I admire the square and squoval tips on other nail blogs. So, this was a fun way to test-drive square nails without committing.
(Rest assured – I won’t be converting my nail shape to squares. I’ve actually learned to appreciate my natural, rounded nail shape more, even if they’re not as trendy as squares. But, when I feel the need to sport something different, I’ll just reach for another pack of Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure nails!)
The imPRESS nails are the very first press-on nails that I’ve ever worn, so it was a new experience for me. And I was surprised by how easy and smooth the whole process was. (They’re ideal for those very busy days when you don’t have time to paint your nails or do nail art, yet you still want something fun.)
Plus they come in tons of different designs, so there’s a look to suit your style.
In this post, I’ll show you lots of swatches of them on my nails, and I’ll go into detail about how they wore, as well as share some tips that you may find helpful.
Happy Friday, everyone!
Today, I have for you a quick little post to share some information I received earlier this week regarding the brand new Bundle Monster Sun Kissed Nail Plate Collection, which will be available on their official website.
While I don’t have any images of each of the 10 plates in the collection, I still thought some of you who love to do stamping nail art would be interested knowing that new designs are coming out in early September, which is just a wink away!
Zoya Autumn is part of the Ignite Collection, which I’m very excited about because it’s fiesty and reminds me of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg!
I think this nail polish is appropriately named because it definitely screams fall to me. It has that warmth to it and some zing like a touch of ginger.
It’s one of those colours that’s very easy to sport because it’s not bright or crazy, yet it’s far from dull or boring.
There’s a ‘sizzle’ about this one, and the sparkle dances on your nails, which is fun to see!
When you want a completely customizable design that makes a statement that ends with exclamation points, try out my Bold Nail Art Tutorial Featured on PromCanada.com!
(You can click here to see the original article on Prom Canada, or continue reading this post for the tutorial.)
It uses just two different nail-polish colours, and it’s very quick to paint, so it’s not only ideal for a prom look, but for any time when you want your nails to be bold and really pop.
The pink I used is Nicole by OPI LeaPink for Joy (from the Seize the Summer Collection), and the gorgeous, shimmery purple is Nicole by OPI Back in My Gloria Days… (from the Modern Family Collection), which lends a sharp contrast, while still creating a girly manicure.
If any of you decide to try it out, please tag me on social media, so I can see and share with my readers!
You know how Ludacris yells, “LUDA!”? Well, when I first laid eyes on Zoya Yuna, for some reason, I read it as “YUNA!” like Luda! No, I can’t just read it normally.
This polish is all kinds of amazing. I can’t think of any nail polish I already own in my ever-growing stash that’s exactly like this, so it’s pretty unique. That’s a hard feat, considering that there are soooo many gorgeous nail polishes on the market. Kudos, Zoya!
This polish is an interesting dusty slate blue with golden-green sparkle. I looked at it for the longest time, and sometimes I thought the sparkles were golden, but contrasting the blue, they sometimes looked a little green.
Regardless, Zoya Yuna is really interesting, and I like how when you first glance at it, it’s unassuming and subtle. But when you take the time to look deeper, that’s when you see the sparkle, and it whispers sweet nothings!
Autumn is my favourite season because of the rich colours, explosion in fashion, new beauty products, pumpkin spice lattes, colours of the changing leaves, knitting projects, and pumpkin pies! (Plus Hallowe’en is my favourite holiday.)
So you can just imagine how excited I am about the China Glaze All Aboard Collection, which is their fall release, launching in September!
The shades are rich, and, as with many of China Glaze’s collections, this one is full of variety, so there’s something for everyone.
When I first read the press release and saw the promo pictures, I was most enticed by Choo-Choo Choose You and Mind the Gap.
Which ones catch your eye initially?
OPI My Dogsled Is a Hybrid from the Nordic Collection is one of those bright blue-ish greens that’s a pick-me-up. I don’t have to worry about it clashing with my skin tone – it always works without any hassles.
This is a shade that’s happy and bright, but not neon or too loud. It’s just right!
Although I have lots of turquoises and aquas in my collection, I always gravitate toward this familiar colour territory because it’s a no-brainer. And I love how it adds a pop of fun colour onto my nails. Plus this colour looks great on so many different skin tones, which is awesome!
