Pastel Plaid

  Here are the nails that I'll probably still have on for Easter, Pastel Plaid! Yep, I took the easy way out and just did some stripes, but it still really like these.

  For these nails I started with a base of Shallow from Colour Gossip. I used the longest striper that I have for these. I started with the yellow, Sinful Colors Unicorn. The pink stripes are OPI Pink Friday, the purple stripes are Sinful Colors Candy Coated. Last but not least, the blue stripes are Sinful Colors Sugar Rush. I used two coats of top coat on these so they wouldn't feel lumpy.

  I hope you guys have a happy Easter!

Zoya Pippa

  Hey guys! Here is a nail polish that has been in my untried for a while now, Zoya Pippa. I got this one when Zoya had one of those deals going on on their website, I think it was the BOGO one.

  This is the perfect taxi cab yellow, and although this color is really beautiful it was extremely hard to work with. This was really thick and goopy and somehow managed to be really patchy. I even tried thinning this out and that didn't even help! To add to that, I used 4 coats of this and, after applying top coat, this wouldn't even out on some of my fingers.

  Here's the best part, this started chipping THE VERY NEXT DAY! Yeah, I was disappointed with this. I seem to have really bad luck with Zoya. I have a couple colors from them that I love (Avery, Aurora) and a couple that I really hate (this one, Frida) It's like they can't get a good formula on some of their colors. *sigh*

   So, I was honestly debating whether or not I should post these because a couple of these fingers got ruined by my top coat and my camera decided it wanted to be a jerk and not take pictures correctly. Obviously I decided to post them because I still think they were really pretty.

  I used this tutorial from Chelsea's Get Nailed to do these roses. It was pretty easy, and I think my roses came out good. These ones on my thumb came out the best of all of them.

 I started with a base of two coats of Butter London Bossy Boots, I freaking love this pistachio green. The roses were Lime Crime Parfait Day, Crema De Limon, Essie Fiesta and white. The leaves were done with Essie Sew Psyched and mixed with some white. Then, I ruined this with one coat of Seche Vite...

Candy Drips

   Hey guys! Here I am using these Sinful Colors nail polishes again! I can't stop using them, they're so perfect for spring.

 For these drippy nails I used the colors Sugar Rush and Candy Coated. I started with two coats of Sugar Rush and then I used a detail brush to paint on some drips with Candy Coated. I let that dry and then I used some white acrylic paint to add some little accents on the drips, I think it makes them look really cute and cartooney.

 I finished this off with a coat of Seche Vite, it messed up a couple of these nails with its shrinkage. I have a love/hate relationship with that stupid top coat.
