I've missed a few Fridays, but I haven't stopped collecting my favourite posts! Here are some of YOUR amazing posts that inspire my passion for nail polish!(also, I hate how Blogger has formatted this post - if it bothers you as much as it bothers me, I'm sorry, I've tried and I can't fix it!)
Liquid Jelly's Once a Cheetah, Always a Cheetah - I have passed by the $OPI Safari Luxe collection a zillion times and never wanted anything from it, but this post makes me want to get OACAAC! It looks so pretty on Liz's nails, and her photography really captured the glow. Beautiful.
Rebecca Likes Nails' Gradient Zebra - Speaking of Safaris...! Rebecca's nail art is so well done, it looks amazing. I love that she has used relatively inexpensive polishes (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear) to create this awesome Zebra print mani. Plus the tutorial is very detailed and helpful. Wow!
Diana's Green and Glitter Nails - It's the colour that really attracts me to this design. I love the mint base paired with the green Konad accents. I have the fishnet (lace?) image plate, I am excited to try this design out. I also find it amazing that the glitter topcoat is called Edward, and that it has a pair called Bella. LOL.
Fashion Polish's Essie Lapis of Luxury with Effects - Adding the Golden Rose scale effect (aka FLAKIE!) to an already beautiful colour and then mattifying it - WOW. I could wear this every day for the rest of my life, it's THAT pretty.
Emily's Twist on the Traditional Leopard Print - I have seen lots of leopard print manis, and a lot of them are non-traditional, and I pretty much love all of them. This one catches my eye especially because it is monochromatic - black, white and grey. The unexpected glitter accents are so pretty :)
Kayla's Cherry Blossoms - This is flawless. Just stunning. <3 I want this now.
Let Them Have Polish's Mermaid's Tears - Another fishnet/lace design (I see a trend in my favourites this week), Cristina took the name of the polish literally when designing her manicure - Mermaid's Tears! Duh, why didn't I think of this?! The sponging effect paired with a clever use of the newly-named fishnet/lace/fishSCALE image plate, and a few clear rhinestones - voila. Very cool.
Nicely Varnished's Time for Summer! - This nail art it so awesome! I rarely see such bright neons put together in such a nice way. Very summery indeed.
Once Bitten's Snakeskin Nails - I love where the inspiration for this manicure came from - an actual snakeskin manicure that cost over $300. Once Bitten made her faux snakeskin design for much less moola by carefully blending colours and stamping. Very creative and well-done!
Gotham Polish's Milky Glitter Mani - A Friday Favourite post wouldn't be complete without a link to Gotham Polish! I love this girl's photos and unique perspective of NYC. I love her sense of humor. AND I LOVE THIS MANICURE! I am calling it Milky glitter, because that's what it reminds me of (Amy, I hope you don't mind!) The bright and bold glitter of Milani Gems takes on a whole new pastel look. Win!
