China Glaze At Vase Value/OPI Black Onyx Chevrons

Hey everyone! I know I’ve been absent for a while, I never really intended to abandon my blog, but life got in the way. I’ve been super busy with work, life, and my dogs. The dogs are doing well, Copper’s grown a lot and weighs about 11 pounds now (when I got him he weighed 4.5 pounds). He’s 9 months old now and is a good dog for the most part (I’m still dealing with chewing and puppy energy, but he’s super smart and learns pretty quick). Sophie is also doing well, still a sweetheart and she’s getting better with being along while I’m at work. Everything else has pretty much been the same. I haven’t really had time to do my nails lately and when I have had time, I usually use gel polish because it lasts longer and dries more quickly than normal polish. I’m still working on perfecting my gel polish application, but I feel like it’s getting better.


Today’s nails are more chevron nails. I’m still practicing with the nail vinyls, so I apologize for the messiness of some of my nails. I started with a coat of OPI – Natural Nail Base Coat. I then applied three coats of China Glaze – At Vase Value. Once that had dried completely, I applied the chevron nail vinyls. I then applied a coat of OPI – Black Onyx and removed the nail vinyls. I topped it off with two coats  of Seche Vite. (I haven’t really been taking that good of care of my hands/nails, so I apologize for my cuticles  and nail shapes). Thank you for reading, I’ll try and work on posting somewhat more regularly. Have a great day!!

China Glaze – At Vase Value

Hey everyone! I’m so sorry that I took another week off! The week before last I was getting ready to move and then that weekend I actually moved into my apartment! So I was completely busy that weekend and then last week I wasn’t completely unpacked so I couldn’t post anything or paint my nails. On Saturday and yesterday I was finishing unpacking and organizing my apartment. It feels like home now! I’ll try (for real this time) to post at least once a week and ideally twice a week. It may take a bit for me to get back into the swing of things again, but I’ll actually try this time. Although my nails and cuticles are in pretty bad shape right now so I’ll be posting some swatches that I hadn’t posted until my nails/cuticles are better.

Today’s nails are a swatch of China Glaze – At Vase Value from almost a month ago. I started with a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I then applied three coats of China Glaze – At Vase Value. I then applied a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat. That’s it for today, thanks for reading! Have a great day!

Disney Princesses – Jasmine

Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been away again. I graduated on the 17th of May and then my parents and sister were here for the following week. And we looked for apartments because I got I job! I had a job offer from a job fair that I went to in April, but I was officially hired on Tuesday and I start on Monday! It’s my first real job and it’s in my field. I’m really excited/nervous to start. I’m also excited to move into my new apartment (the lease at the house I’m living at now is up in July and I’m moving to my new apartment in June). Because of my job and moving, I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to do/post nails, but once I figure out my schedule, I’ll let you know.

Today’s princess nails are representing Jasmine from Aladdin. I was aiming to recreate Jasmine’s costume (specifically, her pants). I started with a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I then applied three coats of Julep – Jeanne on the lower area. I then applied a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat. The colors aren’t quite right, but the general idea is there. Thanks for reading, have a great weekend!
