Happy Mani Monday!!- Tiffany blue and Black, Oh My!

Happy Mani Monday everyone!! I am so excited about this weeks mani Monday look. I was shopping at Target the other day ans saw this amazing black and silver glitter nail polish by L’oreal. I love it because it has different shapes of glitter, some chunky and some skinny. Plus, it can go over any color nail polish!! As I was looking through my nail collection I found an Elf Tiffany blue color for the summer.I kept it simple by adding the glitter to the ring finger.  I thought, this new black and silver glitter top coat is a great way to transition a summer trend color to Fall!!! check out  this weeks look!

Mani Monday! Product Review on Sally Hansen

Happy Mani Monday Everyone! Today I wanted to do a product review on a newer nail polish from Sally Hansen. It is the Triple Shine polish. I thought I would test this polish as a stand alone polish.That’s right,  I decided to be a nail polish rebel and not use a base coat or a top coat! O know, you are thinking… “WHAAAT??? how is this possible. You NEED a base coat and a top coat for so many reasons”. Well I don’t know about you, but life gets crazy for me sometimes, so I am always looking for techniques and products that will help me save time. After all, time is money, right? That’s why this nail polish caught my eye. If this nail polish truly has triple shine, why add two steps and products to this process. I have to say that so far, this nail polish is pretty awesome!

Here is what I like about this nail polish: 

– The Color range. There are bright colors, deep colors, and you can even get a creamy texture or a sparkly texture. 

– The Brush. This brush is great if you are looking to paint your nails in a pinch while achieving a smooth applications. 

– The texture of the polish. I only had to apply two coats. 

– Finally, I love that it wears well without a base coat or a top coat. 

Overall, I like it and I recommend this nail polish for anyone on the go!

Happy Mani Monday!

So this week  I thought I would give the increasingly popular Ombre nail look a try. I have to admit that it was harder than I thought it would be. I ended up having to try it a couple of time, but I am glad that I tried it because it is a super fun nail fashion! I ended up going from pale pink to purple, which was a more safe choice but I have gotten a few compliments on my color choice, so I am feeling pretty good about this weeks look.

I think this look would be super pretty if you went from a light blue to a dark blue. It would be a super great nail look for a bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, or just a girls night out. I love how nail polish has become an accessory that completes any outfit! Don’t you?? 

Let’s take a look at what I used:

I used a mixture of nail brands. From the left, I used an Urban Outfitter nail color, a Cover girl nail color (its a limited Hunger Games color, how fun is that??), a Color Show nail polish from Maybelline, and a MAC limited nail color (however there is a similar shade by L’oreal. 

Here is a quick overview of what I did: 

– First, I painted my nail with the cover girl nail color. 

Image

– Then, I painted the lightest color to the darkest color. I painted stripes of the colors and layered them while they were wet. 

 

This look took a little longer than I thought it would. I watched Zoolander while I painted my nails. I recommend you Netflix your favorite movie, have a mini Hulu marathon, or listen to a a good audio book while doing your Ombre nail fashion. Have you tried the Ombre nail look? If so what is your favorite color combination? Leave a comment below today!

Happy Mani Monday! For the Love of Polka Dots!!

Hello everyone! I here to wish you a Happy Mani Monday from Pretty Bride Shop. today i was feeling a little silly. I don’t know about you but I LOVE me some polka dots. I have never really been all that great with nail art, so I thought I would step a little out side my comfort zone and try some fun an funky polka dot nails. I also kept in mind the trend of having your ring finger be a little different than the rest of your nails.

Here is what I used, I used a soft gray colored nail polish as a base, and then I took one of my all time favorite blues (from the MAC Wonder Woman Collection… sorry it is a limited color, but I know there are similar colors out there!)

 

I painted two coats of the soft gray first. I then took a paperclip and unfolded one end, you could probably use a toothpick or a bobby pin as well. Once the gray color was dry, I dipped the unfolded paper clip into the blue and softly dotted the blue over the nails. To make the heart I place two dots of the blue polish next to each other and then a third under and moved the blue polish around so that it looked like a heart. the hardest part of making the heart was making sure the heart was make the “V” part of the heart neatly. Have you ever tried to do your own nail art??? Leave a comment below, I would love to know your experience with nail art!

Happy Mani Monday!!

Happy Mani Monday everyone! I am excited to share my nail geek find of the week. I have had my eye on the Revlon moon candy nail art polish. I have never taken the plunge to try it because I was not sure how the glitter would turn out. Well, The other day I was at Target and I recently downloaded the cartwheel app. If you haven’t checked out the cartwheel app, I recommend you do. The app has special savings on select items and this week the Revlon nail polish was one of those items.

I only saved a small percentage but it was enough  to get me to finally buy the nail polish. I picked the maroon nail color with rose gold glitter. I figured that burgundy color is in for fall so I might as well try it out. Overall I like the color. The color was a little watery so I got a little messy with the burgundy color. I think there are a lot of different combinations with the duo. I choose to place the  glitter at the top of my nail. You could do the glitter on top of the actual color all over the nail, you can do a fun spin on french tip nails, you can dot the glitter on, I mean really there really are a lot of possibilities to create different looks with this nail art duo. I think my favorite aspect of the nail polish duo is it’s versatility. I recommend you try it!

Happy Mani Monday!!

I don’t know about you but I have a love for nail polish! I always have. I have decided that I will feature a different nail look every Monday. If you are also a fan of nail polish fashion. This week I would love to introduce you to velvet nails. Now I have been in the cosmetic world for quite some time now and have seen all of the textured nail polish trend as they have launched. I have always like the thought of a textured nail but have been afraid to try it. Last night, I was in the mood to spice up my fall wardrobe and found the velvet nail kit Beauty London. It is in a navy blue which is my go to fall color. Also, I thought it would be a great color for a fall or winter bride to be to wear to her pre-wedding events like her rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, or bachelorette party. It also makes a really fun toe color for those ladies who like to have neutral finger nails but go for a dramatic toe mail color.

The process of applying the nail color is not as hard as I had thought. Every textured nail kit will have slightly different directions, but from what I gather most of these nail fashions have 2-3 step and it takes about 15-20 minutes for the nail products to fully dry. The velvet nail I used was a 2 step process. All I had to do was apply two coats of the nail color and then dip my nail in the velvet powder… So easy! If you are looking for a fun and funky way to jazz up your fall wardrobe, think about adding some nail fashion to your life. Please leave a comment below letting me know what you think or what you favorite nail fashion, color or trend is right now!
