My Five Favorite Nail Art Designs Of 2016

Hello readers,
For 2016 I wanted to post more nail art looks on the blog. I started out strong, but got in a bit of a rut during the middle of the year. Some nail art challenges served as inspiration and I picked things back up towards the end of the year. Here's a look at my five favorite looks from the past year.

Snowy Winter Forest Nail Art

Christmas nail art

Hello readers,
Christmas is only a couple of days away and here in Southwestern Ontario it looks like it's going to be a white one. I'm not really one for the usual red and green holiday designs, but snow makes it feel like Christmas to me. For this year's holiday nail art I went for a peacefully snowy forest scene.

CANVAS Lacquer Hawkins, Indiana Swatches & Review

Canvas Lacquer Hawkins Indiana

Hello readers,
Today I have a new-to-me Canadian indie polish brand to share with you, Canvas Lacquer! I've been aware of this brand for a little while but hadn't had the chance to try them out. Recently I found out that I actually have a friend in common with one of the brand owners, which meant my friend had a source for some pretty awesome polish presents. This first shade is part of the Stranger Things collection. Who doesn't love some good 80's style supernatural inspiration?

Hello Waffle Cosmetics Visage November 2016 Unboxing & Review

Hello Waffle Cosmetics November 2016

Hello readers,
Today I have Hello Waffle Cosmetic's November visage to share with you. I'm a bit late with this one as it is clearly December, but swatching the Howl lipsticks took over my makeup swatching time for a little while. November was the second anniversary of the visage subscription and was inspired my Joseph Jacob's The Buried Moon. The colour palette features a mix of cool tones, shimmer and sparkle. Let's take a look at what was included.

Plum & Silver Nail Art

Purple stamping polish

Hello readers,
Today I have quick nail art look to share with you. I love mixing finishes and colours with a stamped accent to create pulled together look. I started with China Glaze Crimson on my pointer and pinky fingers along with Julep Missy on my middle and ring finger. Then I used China Glaze Crimson and MoYou London plate Pro XL 06 to add a floral design to my ring finger. I sealed everything up with a coat of CND Super Shiney top coat. Photos were taken in daylight spectrum lighting.
