It’s a new week, and I have some new nails. I was short on time this week and did this mani in two stages; the base color, and the stamping. That’s why my edges are a little rough-looking. I used Nails Inc.’s Sweets Way as my base, and a white creme I whipped up myself to stamp with.
Sweets Way is a white crelly with some colorful glitters, and I knew it wouldn’t need a lot to go with it. I nearly just wore it alone, and I did for a day or so. I decided that no, I could do better, so I did some quick stamping with my white creme. My stamping isn’t perfect, it never is, but I like the look I got. It’s like lace, just a simple little sweet something.
Sweets Way was discontinued by Nails Inc.; Nails Inc. can be found at Sephora.
I bought this polish myself.
Happy Tuesday! I’m kind of proud of myself for getting this out somewhat timely. I promised neons for summer, and here they are! This is Color Club’s Wham! Pow! with American Apparel’s Neon Yellow.
When I planned this mani, I definitely had longer nails in mind. I’ve done a couple of gradient looks on these baby nails, and I’ve had some difficulty getting my colors evenly distributed. Also, my yellow isn’t as neon as I’d hoped for. It’s definitely more of a cool highlighter yellow. Either way, it’s bright, and so I’m happy with it. My photo here doesn’t do it justice; these are very bright, and my hands look very tan.
Wham! Pow! and other Color Club polishes are available on their website. American Apparel doesn’t sell polish anymore.

Hi! So it’s been a minute since I posted last. I hit a busy spell at work, on top of my other projects, blogging was the thing that fell to the wayside. I have no idea how you girls with full-time jobs and children keep your blogs going so regularly! As you can see, a lot has happened to my nails since my last post. I broke a nail at work (rip) and had to cut them all down. That was a couple weeks ago. They were once shorter than this. So, to celebrate my return, here’s some nails! I used Sinful Colors’s Love Nails and Wacie Nail Company’s Wintrella.
Love Nails is an old Sinful Classic. I didn’t capture it so well in these photos, but it has this icy blue glow to it that’s absolutely beautiful. One downside is that it’s kind of on the sheer side; I’m wearing three coats here and my visible nail lines were only just covered. Regardless, it’s a polish I’ve had for years, and I love digging oldies out of the vault.
Wintrella is a glitter topper I made myself! It was one of my early attempts at polish making, and is essentially every blue and silver glitter I had at my disposal. I love icy glitters on icy blue, and this is a look that could work in the fall just as well as the summer.
Love Nails might have been discontinued by Sinful Colors; other SC polishes are sold in stores. I have four bottles of Wintrella, let me know if you want one!
