Sally Hansen Sugar Coats: Dotted Gradient

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I promised you some nail art using by brand new Sally Hansen Sugar Coats and that’s what I have for you today! A simple but pretty dotted gradient.

I started off with 3 coats of Tip Top Nail Chic – Cream Puff and then used 3 different sized dotting tools to apply first Razzleberry and then Sour Apple from the Sally Hansen Sugar Coats. This is super simple nail art but I really like it on my nails!


Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Swatches

Hi everyone!

As you may remember from my last post, I was very excited to find Sally Hansen Sugar Coats in Clicks a few days ago. I love textured nail polish so I couldn’t wait to test it out and I got swatching! There are 8 colours available: Cherry Drop, Razzleberry, Sugar Fix, Cotton Candies, Sour Apple, Bubble Plum, Lick-O-Rich, and Sweetie. I got the first 6 of those – the two I didn’t get are Lick-O-Rich, which is a black texture, and Sweetie, which is yellow. I decided I don’t need another matte black texture since I have Nails Inc’s Leather Effect one and although it’s textured in quite a different way, I doubt I’ll ever use them both up. I also steered clear of the yellow since yellow doesn’t suit my skin tone, but I’m sure some people like it 😉

All swatches shown below are two coats, and the colours were pretty consistent. They applied easily and the texture developed as they dried. The white had a slightly thinner formula but it still applied well and looked good after two coats. And here we go:

Tape Mani Monday

Hi everyone!

It’s no secret that I love textured polishes. I also love using striping tape since it has endless possibilities… Today I got to use them both! I also have some exciting news at the end of the post 🙂

Blog awards: Liebster Award and Versatile Blogger Award

Hello ladies!

Today’s post is a bit different. While I’ve been busy with the 31 Day Challenge, I’ve received no less than 3 nominations for blog awards. Considering how recently I started this blog, I was overwhelmed, and I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, and I hope you continue to like what you see! Beth from The Polish Influenza nominated me for a Versatile Blogger award, and I got nominations for a Liebster Award from both Aliquid and Nail Art by Divya. Thanks to all 3 of you lovely ladies! I’ve decided to combine all 3 into one post because there is some overlap between them. It’s going to be quite wordy but hopefully it’s interesting for you! 🙂

31 Day Challenge – Day 15: Delicate Print

Hi everyone!

For today’s delicate print nails, I was a bit stumped for ideas. But then I walked past a new little nail salon, and what did I see in their display but Liquid Sand polishes! :-D!!! I was over the moon since I haven’t seen anyone else stocking them in my area. Sadly, she only had 2 colours to choose from so far, but I scooped up What Wizardry is This? and first thing when I got home it went on my nails! Here are 2 coats: (more…)
