Limited Edition Glitter by Sinful Colors

Today while at Target I stumbled across three Limited Edition Sinful Colors Glitters!! I purchased them for $1.99 each.

 

The names are adorable: Listed left to right: Thats Elfed Up!, Sleigh My Name (Coffee shops do this often) and Santa Claws. Sinful Colors Glitter polishes are always on point and the right price which is why they are one of my favorite.

 

For the swatches I brushed on the first coat and sponged on the second, all have a top coat.

 

Santa Claws is a gold shimmer base with mixed sizes of hex glitter in both red and white.

Sleigh My Name is holographic base with mixed gold hex glitter and white stars, you will need to dig for the stars.

That’s Elfed Up! is a clear base with larger red and off white hex glitter with smaller round white and green glitter.

If you see these purchase them for yourself and to gift!

Painted nails are happy nails!

Holiday Nails-Christmas Tree!

With the holiday season upon us I decided to add a little holiday spirit to my nails! This is a simple Christmas tree look which can be done in all colors with different types of decorations.

For this look I used NYC In a New York Minute MoMA and High Line Green (both press samples), star shaped nail rhinestones and nail tape. I kept the look simple but could have added “bulbs” using a toothpick or dotting tools.

To get the look:

1. Paint the nails a base color of choice, I used NYC MoMa.
2. Take the nail art tape and create a triangle on the nail. (I do one nail at a time.)

3. Take two more pieces of nail tape and place them diagonally inside the triangle.

4. Using a color of your choice, I used NYC High Line Green, paint inside the triangle tape.
5. Take the tape off right after you painted the nail.
6. Add a quick dry top coat I used NYC In a New York Minute (press sample)
7. Place the star rhinestone on the top of the tree.

A few tips:
1. Use a fast drying nail color or top coat when using nail art tape; it speeds up the nail art process.

2. When adding rhinestones to your nails you can either place the quick top dry coat to one nail at a time then place the rhinestone on the nail, or use a toothpick or dotting tool to dot on some quick drying top coat where you will be placing the rhinestone.
