Shades of Pink Nails

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? The weather was so beautiful here so we took advantage of that by spending plenty of time outside. It looks like the great weather will continue all week, which we are very happy about since we'll be going to Montauk for a long weekend.

Today I pulled out three different Essie colors for my nails. I've been seeing a lot more looks where different shades in the same color family are being used and I think it looks so cute! Kind of like ombre nails but out of order. For today's mani I decided on three purple/pink polishes in the colors Baguette Me Not (thumb and ring fingers), Go Ginza (index and pinky fingers), and Splash of Grenadine (middle finger). I used two coats for each color.

Of course you can recreate this using any colors you like. Pinks and purples truly are some of my favorites, so I love these colors together.




Hope you have a great week!

xoxo,

Abstract Nail Art

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? We had beautiful weather and spent some time at the pool. I can't believe it's already August! I'm definitely starting to feel the itch for fall nail colors, but for now I'm still happy with summer brights.

I've been seeing the abstract nail art trend for a while on Instagram and always thought it looked super fun, so I decided to give it a try myself. I was recently gifted the Morgan Taylor Rocketman collection by Preen.Me and two colors in particular spoke to me. The first was a bright pink creme called Tickle My Keys and the second was a yellow creme called Glow Like A Star. Both apply beautifully and were opaque in two coats!

Doing an abstract nail is pretty simple. It can really be anything you want! I used a little of the pink and yellow and a just a little bit of white. I then used black and a dotting tool to make small dots over the white area. I was definitely skeptical of how it would turn out, but I really like it! I think there will definitely be more abstract nails in the future.





Hope you have a great week!
