piCture pOlish Alive water decal nail art

*Nothing to disclose

It’s been a while since I wore some nail art, so I recently decided to do something simple using piCture pOlish Alive and some water decals I had. I bought Alive along with a swag of other piCture pOlish polishes in its recent stocktake sale (see my haul pic on IG) and thought Alive might go nicely with the decals I chose. Let’s take a look!

Alive is a deep fuchsia scattered holo with magenta hexes. It’s a simple polish, which I like, so I thought it would go well with some jazzing up, hence the gold studs. Can’t have too much bling! πŸ˜€ With the water decals, I didn’t realise until I cut it out ready for my ring finger that it was going to be mostly green thanks to the leaf – obviously I think it would have been better as pink/orange you see in the decal on my middle finger.

With Alive, I found the polish to be very smooth and easy to apply. What you see here is two coats with a top coat of Seche Vite to all fingers, including on top of the studs. I find it easier to seal studs in with a good top coat than use nail glue (aside the fact that I don’t actually own nail glue!) and I’ve never had a problem with any falling off prematurely.

Valentine’s Day nail art

*Nothing to disclose

Good evening! A very quick post tonight to share with you my Valentine’s Day nail art creation. I figured I might as well contribute to the swarms of Valentine’s Day nail art ideas around. I personally wouldn’t wear something over the top on Valentine’s Day so I figured this would be quite nice and simple – love heart tips with full hearts on my ring finger and thumb.

I used two polishes from ulta3’s Candy Couture Collection for this – Rock Candy and Sugar Coated. I’ll show you more of the Candy Couture Collection soon, I promise. For the black outline I used my BYS nail striper. Thanks for reading!
