November's Nail Art

I have taken a minor break from nail art lately (this time of the year is too crazy for anything other than a paint and go!) I decided to break out my glitters and shimmers to take me through the holiday season. This is my most current set of nails: China Glaze's Whirled Away over Sally Hansen's Twisted Pink. I love the hexagon black and white shapes mixed up with the black bar pieces. I can't really call these pieces glitter they are a bit more matte. I love the geometric look they create...I'm thinking of trying them on teal and silver next time!
I recently purchased the Zoya Ornate Holiday 2012 Collection and I adore all the polishes in this set!! So far I have tried these two colors. The top one is Aurora, a gorgeous iridescent sparkly purple color. I could have gotten away with just one coat - but I went with two just to deepen the purple.
This is Zoya's Electra with Nicole by OPI Iceberg Lotus for a base. I had never tried a bar glitter before this polish, but I am loving how sparkly it is! I think Electra would look great on any nail color - I'm even thinking of trying it out on a nude nail!

I am looking forward to trying all the other colors from the collection - but I may hold off just a bit longer so I can save some of them for Christmas week! The red, green & gold will make a perfect holiday manicure!

Happy painting!

  1. I just repainted my nails tonight (with Revlon TopSpeed), after my other manicure had an unfortunate chipping incident while making Oobleck.

    I like keeping my nails painted throughout the week (since I have a document camera and my hands are under it a lot).

    My favorite combo so far has been Sally Hansen's Pronto Purple (her fast drying line) with gold sparkles over the top...it looked really cool for Thanksgiving!

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yeah, school can be brutal on a manicure, computer lab destroys mine on a daily basis! Ooh I have Pronto Purple too, but I never tried gold glitter on it - I'll have to try that out soon. Thanks Kaitlyn!

  2. Your nails look beautiful! I wish I could find the time to paint mine that often! I'm too impatient to wait for them to dry completely and I always end up messing at least one up! That bar glitter you have is my favorite!

    1. Thanks! I had stopped painting for awhile for the same reason. I always smudged a few - but then I started using Sally Hansesn Insta-Dri and it really works! You just let your nails sit for two minutes after you paint, then apply it & 30 seconds later they are rock solid! It is the best invention ever!

  3. Love all the glitter! They look wonderful. I don't paint cause mine are ALWAYS chipped and I am too OCD it would drive me nuts, but I love seeing them.

    1. Thanks! Chips drive me crazy too, but not as much as naked nails!
