Day 6: 7 Days of Pink, Orange, and Yellow

Monday, May 27, 2013
Hello! I hope you have enjoyed your long weekend if you had one. 
However, today is a great big "thank you" to those who have served our country! 

For day 6, I went with mostly pink. On my ring finger, I used Nubar 2010 to add a very subtle yellow/orange tint. :)


Day 5: 7 Days of Pink, Orange, and Yellow

Saturday, May 25, 2013
Hello! Sorry for the little break there! I adopted a dog last week and have been busy training him. I've also been looking for a job! (Psst…if you know anyone in the Scottsdale area hiring creative people/recent advertising graduates, shoot me an e-mail). :) 

Stick around for a few pictures of my new pup! We named him Zip. 

On to the nails! Just some random designs. 

And now, here is Zip! He is a 2 year-old Australian Terrier Mix (according to his adoption papers). We found him at PetSmart (can you believe we went in there looking for a betta fish and came out with a dog instead)?!

This is the day we got him, dirty and happy and recently neutered.

Isn't he just gorgeous?!

Now, here he is, freshly groomed and smelling fabulous! This was taken today. I miss his long hair, but with the heat in AZ we decided to cut it all off for now. 


Day 4: 7 Days of Pink, Orange, and Yellow

Hello lovelies! Today I have a gradient with glitter to show you for the fourth installment of Pink/Orange/Yellow week! 

Also, stick around until the end of the post to see some ADORABLE shoes I picked up today (they match my blog)!


Polishes used:
Hard Candy - Black Tie Optional

Annnnndddd now, for one of the most awesome finds of the year:

 Shoes that MATCH MY BLOG! I was floored when I walked past them at Nordstrom's! I knew I needed them because it's my blog design and I love leopard print! Aren't they just adorable? 

Stick around for day 5!



Day 3: 7 Days of Pink, Orange, and Yellow

Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Good afternoon! Here is the third look for my Pink, Orange and Yellow week! I went with a vibrant dotticure. Dotticures are simple and easy to do if you have limited time! 


Stick around for day 4!



Day 2: 7 Days of Pink, Orange, and Yellow

Monday, May 13, 2013
Hello! Today I have the second installment of my Pink, Orange, and Yellow endeavor! I'm absolutely loving how these turned out! 

I mixed one of my favorite techniques (watercolor) with some funky zigzags. Check it out! 

These were all done with a very small brush! The watercolor effect can be achieved by dabbing VERY diluted polish (with acetone) onto your nail. NOTE: Be sure to put a blob of polish on tin foil or palette when mixing with acetone so that you don't ruin your bottle of nail polish. 

I think I can direct traffic with how bright these nails turned out! :D

Stick around for day 3!



I'm back!!!! 7 Days of Pink, Orange, and Yellow

Sunday, May 12, 2013
Hello my lovely readers! It's been a whirlwind of a couple of weeks. I made it to Scottsdale safely (driving from Washington to Arizona is a looooong and boring drive, let me tell you). Anyway, I am trying to settle in by adjusting to the heat (it's 96 right now at 7:08 p.m.), job hunting, and catching up on my nail art endeavors.

I'm so sorry that I was so sporadic in my posts, but with my final semester in college, my graduation, and the move…things were bound to get a little hectic. I want to thank you all for sticking around. I hope to get this blog on a roll again now that I will have more time (and hopefully a regular schedule once I find a job).

To kick off my return to blogging, I am doing "7 Days of Pink, Orange, and Yellow" manicures! Let's get started with the first day!

Tropical Look

I wanted something floral and happy, so I did a dark and light pink gradient, then randomly placed orange flowers on my nails. I used a thin brush and some thinned out yellow to outline the flowers.

As you can see, I have quite the tan on my hands! This happened during the drive to AZ! :)

Overall, it was a quick and messy manicure, but I really enjoyed the cute flowers and the vibrance of the colors! 

Stick around for day two!
