I originally saw this from a Pinterest post and had to try it because I loved it so much. I would say that this was my most “liked” nail picture that I posted on Instagram, but maybe because in the full image I had Reddick in the background!
Every time I’m about to get my nails done I ask my boyfriend what color I should paint them. Every time his response is black. I will rarely ever just paint them a plain color so I took half his suggestion and then added a touch of pink. I also found a pink & black glitter that was really pretty so I added that to the top of every nail. I loved these!
(June 2015) — my hand is on the right, and to my left is my friend Allison’s nails.
I used the same pink as before and the same peach color, and then added a full silver glitter to the ring finger. I loved how these colors went together so well. Bright colors for the summer make me soo happy!
This was similar to the pink, white, and gold nails I had in May… But instead, I tried a silver on the ring, white on my index, and then a red/orange color on the rest of my nails. It was somewhat Fourth-0f-July appropriate.
I was fairly tan in July even though you can’t tell in this picture. I wanted to try a light nude color that would make me look darker, and try a more simple and natural approach. Turns out it went perfect with my friend Chrissy’s MK bag. To keep it clean, I added a gold glitter on the top to every nail. Pretty!
This was another “first” when it came to color. Yellow can either be a hot or a miss. I actually liked the way this turned out. I was able to use my favorite bright pink color on the ring finger and then add a multi-colored speckled polish all over my ring finger. This was a perfect set to end Summer on a bright and happy note.
Sometimes my nail color reflects my attitude and personality. September is always a hard month for me due to the anniversary of my grandmother’s death. I also wanted to experiment with “MATTE” polishes so I painted my nails all-black and then added the Sally Hansen matte top coat.
I absolutely despise the color orange on my fingers, so there was no way I was getting Halloween nails. I chose a navy color and then added thick vertical silver glitter to the top. Funny story: Justin and I flew to Washington to visit some friends and family. Turns out my nails matched our plane (Alaska Airlines) and the flight attendants loved them!
I found the perfect pale pink color and added a baby pink and silver glitter to the ring finger. Very basic, yet classic.
If you can’t tell, pink is a staple color of mine.
My favorite Christmas nails of all time. I loved how the snowflakes turned out. Maybe next time I’ll add a green glitter to the red. I looked on Pinterest and then kind of just customized them from something similar.
(December 2015/January 2016)
These were my New Years Nails. Not surprising that I went with black and gold. My favorite part about this set was the bold chunky black glitter that I layered on top of the gold. These were fun to end the year!
