Geometric Zoya Nails

Hey everyone! I’m part of a super awesome group of nail artists and makers in the Philadelphia, PA area called The Philly Nail Art Community. I did this mani for the April week 2 challenge, geometric nails. I used a base of Rayne and then using striping tape filled in triangles with Tao and Raven. I think this is one of my favorite manis recently. I love the contrast of the light shimmery Rayne with the two darker polishes.

Zoya is still my favorite mainstream brand and I’m super excited for the summer colors coming out! What are your favorite mainstream and indie brands? Are you excited for any upcoming releases?

Sweet Tooth Water Marble

Hey everybody! I totally meant to have this blog post up on Monday, but it’s here for you now! Believe it or not, I haven’t done a full rainbow water marble until now. Of course I had to use my new Sweet Tooth collection for this instead of searching for other colors that went together. These are all neon holos, which sadly don’t show as much sparkle in these pictures as I would have liked. I did a coat of a white creme that I made underneath to make sure the colors would pop.

I had to include my right hand too because the color really popped and it looked more uniform.

I did have a little trouble with this marble but that was because I wasn’t using filtered water like normal and I was at the bottom of all the polishes so they got a little thick. Overall they came out really well and I only had to re-do a couple nails. I think I will have to experiment with more full rainbows soon. I’ll break out some Zoya cremes and see what I can do. Do you guys like doing water marbles? What’s your best?

Triangle Nails

Happy Monday everybody! My apologies for not posting any nail art in a while, I’ve been sitting on today’s mani for a while now and just haven’t had the chance to post it. I have a couple others lined up as well so hopefully there will be one a week this month.

For this mani I started with a base of Zoya Neve. I was originally going to use striping tape to mark off where the triangles on each nail should be but it was giving me trouble with the chunkiness of Essie On a Silver Platter. I used a thin nail art brush to draw the triangles and fill them in. I topped the whole thing off with a top coat and that’s that!

I think this mani is simple but sophisticated. It would look really good with red and gold too. I’m so glad I finally got myself  On a Silver Platter, it’s so shiny! And while you’re here, don’t forget today is the last day to pre-order the Sweet Tooth sets in full sized or mini at a discounted price!
