Happy Emancipation Day Jamaica 2017!

Hello Everyone! Happy Emancipation Day! Whenever this time of year rolls around and i’m homesick to the extreme, and since this and Independence day fall within the same week so it’s normally a week long celebration. So i’m celebrating my way with nail art of course. See previous years mani for a mini history lesson.

Polishes used Zoya Pippa, Wyatt, Willa & Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Going Green, stamped with Plate BM-H14 using Zoya Goldie and coconut trees from plate Konad M29.

Halloween Graveyard

Hello  Everyone! Happy Halloween! This is the only time of year I attempt to hand draw my nail art concept. I Sponged on several layers of blue, gray and green as a base, but it looked a little one dimensional and nature never is. So I added a yellow and a darker green to give it some life, I also used polishes with shimmer to simulate moonlight.



Polishes used Zoya Carey (base), Zoya Talia, Harley, Daisy, Tracie & England Dragon (Gradient). Zoya Willa, Kelly, Darcy, Arizona & Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Going Green. (Landscape drawings)

Golden Brown Vines

Hello Everyone! I wanted something quick and easy because it was late and I wanted to sleep, and also a palate cleanser after the previous bright neon polish manicure.

The base for this nail stamping is a black nail tint I made by adding a few drops of black polish in some clear topcoat (It drys quicker for stamping purposes). Over that I stamped on the vines using the brown polish and on top of that silvery brown. I absolutely love the effect.



Polishes used Zoya Austine, Cinnamon & Pureen 33 Stamping Plate.




I applied a Zoya coat of matte velvet top coat, it’s not absolutely matte it has a little shine to it.

Springy Negative Space Manicure

Hello Everyone! Hope you are all having an awesome monday! This is my seconds attempt at negative space mani, the first one can be seen here.


I uses chevron vinyls to make the X and then used a makeup sponge to create the gradient then remove the vinyls and voilà. I must have taken a hundred pictures and it still doesn’t look like it does in real life, it did pick up some if the polishes iridescence though.


Polishes used Zoya Jace, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Spots, Royal Hue & Total Flirt. The decals were bought off Ebay.



I did a different design on my right hand, since I was having trouble getting a symmetrical X design and I actually think I like this design better.

Green And Gold Watermarble


Hello Everyone! It’s time to enjoy the golden summer sun and roll in the grass again… unless you have allergies, then doing this is way safer. I going to go with if you’re feeling blue go green but that sounds so cheesy.


I did this mani a little after my nail repair, so it’s not very recent, but I still think it was cute.


I did a fast watermarble manicure using Zoya Tilda (base), Zoya Severin (is one of the best marbling metallic polishes i’ve found) & Zoya Shawn.


The watermarble pattern, as you will see the polishes didn’t all spread out evenly, because this was not the pattern I had in mind for this marble, so I kept trying different ones until I found one that worked with these polishes. Trying to force it into a particular pattern with just frustrate you and make it seem more difficult.
