Cherry tree nail art pink spring manicure | Polished Elegance nail art blog

Cherry blossoms

This is a manicure I did way back in February, but didn’t find the time to upload! It works out though, because it’s spring now and cherry blossoms are a little more appropriate ūüėČ My nails were long in February, I miss my long nails… Oh well! The base is the gorgeous Powder Perfect – […]

Kicks - Rain Drops swatch white rose nail art manicure

Kicks – Rain Drops

I was just feel like a light, shimmery, blue manicure. So I found my¬†Kicks – Rain Drops, which might really be more an icy blue for winter, but it’s super pretty, and the shimmer really sparkles in the sunshine! The shimmer does not translate in these photos, but trust me, it’s gorgeous! ¬† Then I […]

Roses and Quatrefoil

I loved doing this manicure! It’s been so long since I’ve done intricate nail art, not that it’s super detailed and intricate, but I did do the tiniest roses I’ve ever done! On my middle and ring I started with a base of¬†OPI – My Boyfriend Scales Walls and for the quatrefoil design I also […]

Easy Peasy Flowers

I wanted blue, I wanted flowers, I wanted simple. Check, check, check! What I noticed searching my stash, trying to find the blue base color I had in my mind, is that I do not have it. Oh how sad, I need to buy more nail polish! But this one works though. I bought it […]


Vintage pink

After all those “blingy” manicures I’ve had recently I wanted to do something muted and just very pretty. So I of course went with roses!  The base for this manicure is the beautiful Picture Polish – Pirouette. On my index and thumb I did stripes using striping tape and OPI – My Boyfriend Scales Walls, […]


Powder Perfect – Isabelle with one stroke flowers

Today I am showing you the last one of the Powder Perfect polishes I was sent. This is two coats of Powder Perfect – Isabelle, decorated with one stroke flowers. I knew the second I saw this polish that I wanted to pair it with white one stroke flowers! It’s been a while since I did […]

Matching my Filofax Cover Story

I have recently started using paper and pen to organize and plan again instead of my phone. Yes, I’ve gone backwards! :-O I won’t go into detail about my new found love for paper planning, but to put it mildly I’m addicted. I’ve bought myself a super pretty new Filofax Cover Story with an adorable […]


Spring roses

Seems like I’ve been having a little unplanned hiatus! When I started this blog I promised myself I would never apologize for not  blogging, this is after all just a fun hobby. So I won’t apologize for being away, I had a couple of rough weeks and simply didn’t feel like doing my nails. What […]


GOT – Orange (Coral?)

I only have a couple of orange polishes, none of them are even close to being a year old. So I decided I’d go with this polish for today’s prompt; “orange”, as it is the most “orangy” “old” polish I’ve got! Essie – Carousel Coral, this was one of my favorites last spring, and as […]


GOT – Green

I do not have many green nail polishes, this is actually the only one even close to a year old. IsaDora – Beetle Green, it’s a gorgeous polish, I’m just not a big fan of wearing green nail polish for some reason. Except for mint, I love mint nail polish <3 Does mint count as […]
