Manicure Round-Up

I have a few manicure snaps that I want to share so I thought I'd put them all together!

The first manicure is one with Laqa & Co's Fancypants as a base coat. I taped off a single chevron stripe and filled it in with Cult Nails' Living Water. I didn't like how the taped-off stripes look, so I went over it again with a detailing brush. I finished it off by filling in the triangle with OPI's Spark De Triomphe. I'm quite pleased with how this one turned out!

More recently, I was wearing the Mod About You Sally Hansen strips. As the ends started to wear off, I extended the mani by taping off the half moon and polish the top with Essie's Midnight Cami. I think I'm going to love this new way of extending the life of your manicure!

While I was visiting my family in Utah over the holidays, I had a great time giving my sister as mani manicures as we could fit into our schedules! One of the manis she wanted was inspired by one of mine from September. We chose a pink from her own arsenal and used OPI's Alpine Snow for the polka dots and Essie's Luxe Effects in A Cut Above on the glitter accent nail.

Finally, this mani comes from an IBITTM reader. She followed my Galactic Manicure tutorial and shared her results with me on Twitter! Thanks for sharing, @_NikkiKnack_! It looks great!

As always, share your mani photos with me and you may see them featured in a future post! ;)
