31 Day Challenge! Day 21- Nails Inspired by a Color

Hi and happy Sunday!!

  Today's task was quite the vague one... Inspired by a color? What does that even mean lol? I guess anything I want it to mean, right? Instead of being inspired by a color, I was inspired by a color scheme. When I think of Pink, I usually also put White and Black together with it. IDK why but I LOVE Black, Pink and White together. I could probably work in that color scheme for the rest of my blogging days and I would be happy. So for today's challenge I went with my favorite color scheme Black, White and Pink in a fun Mod design.
 So I kept it pretty simple with the whole "circle within circle" thing. I really love simple yet eye- catching designs like this one. I started with a base of Jordana's Pink Bunny. Then with my largest Born Pretty Store dotting tool I added some Black dots using Bettina Onix. Using the smallest dotting tool in the set I then went back and dotted the center of the Black dots with China Glaze White on White. I also decided to spice it up a little bit my mattifying the look with two coats of Hard Candy's Matte-ly in Love.

I'm loving this look matte! Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Color inspired nails!

Some Requested Comparisons


  This is just a quick post of some requests I've had to compare some colors in my collection.

Up first is Zoya's Ibiza and China Glaze's Little Drummer Boy. The difference is quite noticeable here. They are really different. I don't even need to get into detail do I? Happy to report that these are not dupes.
Top: Zoya Ibiza
Bottom: CG Little Drummer Boy
And here is O.P.I's Sparrow me the Drama and Jordana's Pink Bunny. These are also not dupes. SMTD and Pink Bunny could be fraternal twins though. The difference is the SMTD has that drop of Grey that makes it a dirty Pink. Pink Bunny has a drop os lavender in it which makes it a very bright, clean Pink.

I hope this helps those of you wondering about these colors.

Jordana Tangy & Sephora by O.P.I Only Gold for Me

Hi lovelies!!

  Today I have a combo that could brighten any one's day! This is one of my newer additions to my collection. I wish I had not avoided Orange for so long because lately that is all I seem to want to wear and I don't have many Oranges. Well for today I did a super pretty and tropical inspired mani with one of my new faves!
Isn't this so cute and Summery?! For the flower accents I used plate C02 and Konad Red special polish. The Gold glitter really brings this whole look to life. I really love Only Gold for Me. The tone of Gold is very soft. Unlike Milani's bright, almost Yellow, Gold FX. I also really love that it consists of different sized glitters because it gives the look more dimension. I did my thumb with the same design as my ring finger.

Here is a swatch of Tangy. A Salmony- Orange creme with very slight muted qualities. The formula on this is very good. It flows nicely and has great pigmentation. This is Two coats of Tangy.
I need more Oranges in my life. It's only a matter of finding the right Oranges for my skin tone and I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to trying colors so this should be fun. So with that in mind I ask you lovelies...

Do you like Orange on your nails?

Pink Wednesday!! Jordana Pink Bunny & Bon Bons Sparkle

Yay Cupcake nails!

  This is my very first Jordana polish. I remember this brand back from when I was a little girl and my grandma would use their makeup. Good memories. I also used a Bon Bons polish! Remember those? Anyways I picked up Two Jordana polishes recently and this one I just could not wait to try. Behold!!! My cupcake nails!!
  Yeah! Bon Bons! hahaha I don't know why but for some reason i found myself going through the Bon Bons bins at Hell*Mart and found this unnamed pretty along with a Blue version of this. I didn't realize that the base in my Pink Confetti was also Pink, I thought it was a clear base. This is not an issue because I really love the layered look. The cupcake stamp came from Bundle Monster plate BM14 and I used Zoya's Dana and Breezi for the cupcake colors.

Here is a swatch of Jordana Pink Bunny. I flippin love this. Doesn't it look like cake icing? This is a cool toned Pink with slight Lavender undertones. The formula is decent, slightly thick. For this I did Three coats but had I realized the Pink Confetti base was pigmented I would have stopped at Two coats.
I really love this sweet and girly mani. It makes me happy when I look at my hands and I love how the little cupcake turned out! Shout out to my cupcake loving friends!! 

What are you wearing today?
