Purple and Teal Freehand Geometric Nail Art

I have been a bit obsessed with looking at wedding blogs lately. A coworker has gotten me hooked on them. Three things I have discovered since I started reading them? 1. That I hate peach bridesmaids dresses with the heat of a thousand suns. 3.People seem to have a very broad views of what qualifies as "rustic", "vintage" and "whimsical" and 4. That purple and teal is a winning color combination. 





The tools:
Small detailing brush

Colors used:
Wet N' Wild Night Prowl
Butter London Slapper

Steps:
I started by painting my nails with two coats Night Prowl. I then used my detailing brush to paint on the lines with Slapper. I sealed everything with a coat of KB Shimmer Clearly on Top.







As you all can see I am back to my squares again. I got bored one night and cut my nails down. I've been wanting to wear more of my darker colors which I like better with my squares.

Leopard Print Half Moon Nail Art

I was in the mood for leopard print last night. And half moons. So I decided to just combine them- . and they look pretty great together if I say so myself!


After applying my base coat and letting it dry I applied Zoya Flynn. I decided to use guards to create the half moon shape (I use those sticky binder tabs cut in half). I then used Zoya Emilia and Sinful Colors Black on Black for the leopard spots. I outlined the half moons with Black on Black and Revlon Gold Coin.

They're Not The Same. They're Similar - Battle of the Brown Holos

It's been awhile since I've done a comparison post, I know but there was a method to my madness. Mainly that this one has been in the works for awhile and I had to get my hands on everything I wanted to actually compare. I know brown polish is a controversial color. People either love it or hate it, but I love brown polish - especially brown holos!
