Polish TBH 80s Party at Tiffany's

Image
*This polish was purchased with my own monies Well yes, here is another neon showcase. I ordered at Polish TBH grab bag- you all know how much I love grab bags. I actually just purchased an awesome grab bag from a girl in one of my nail groups. It included 9 total polishes with 1 being a nerd and 1 being a Lynn!!!!!! Are you kidding?!?! Best ever and I got my Lynn cherry popped in this one. I love the gamble of not knowing what exactly you get. I have a core of about 6 girls that I will always purchase grab bags from when they come up. That is the key, doing you research to make sure you are buying from someone that a) knows good polish b)doesn't have a shady selling/swapping history and c) you can find testimonials or feedback for them. Anyway, now that all my brag bag buying secrets are out there, I want to introduce you to 80s Party at Tiffany's by Polish TBH. Enjoy!!

Tri- Color Challenge August 4

Image
I made it... an entire month!!! All four manis now submitted!!! This last one I decided to throw up the stripes again. I was going to do a whole Rastafarian theme, but I had to go to work with this mani on, so that was denied. For someone reason since these colors are so elementary to me which reminds me of very basic shapes. Squares, triangles, circles lines. I guess it just flows naturally... Anyway enjoy and stay tuned for next month!!

Tri Polish Challenge August 3

Image
I have made it!! 3/4 of the way there... This week I decided to do some more tape manis! I started off last month with 0 rolls of striping tape and now, thanks to my great friend Stephanie, I have about 10!! I have never used the actual tape in a mani, but I have used it to do those perfect skinny lines. I like the abstract look that I do. It's so simple to just place the tape and then pull it up. I used 2 of the colors- either a red and yellow or red and green underneath, waited a loooooong time for it to dry, then slapped the tape down and then painted over with either yellow or green. Any who, ENJOY!!

The Nail Challenge Collaborative- Around the World- Dutch

Image
This is the third edition of the Nail Challenge Collaborative Around the World Addition! I decided to do some Dutch tulips for this. I used a lot of different colors for this, but for not liking flowers, I think it turned out pretty nice! Anyone have suggestions for my last Around the World mani?? I was thinking of pulling out something for my Throwback Thursday for this. What do you think?? Anyway, here it is!
