Candy canes nail art manicure holiday nail art Christmas manicure OPI - Ro-Man-ce On the Moon | Polished Elegance nail art blog

Candy Canes

Next theme in the December nail art challenge is “Candy Canes”. I used my favorite holiday red OPI – Ro-Man-Ce On the Moon, from last years’ holiday collection! Then I stamped using Cheeky Jumbo plate #6 and white stamping polish from MoYou London. This is the first time I tried a clear stamper, and it worked so […]

Mint and Pink Thorns

What Ups Nails sent me some amazing nail vinyls to try out! For this manicure I used the Thorns Stencils, I’m not very experienced using nail vinyls, I’ve only tried one other brand before, but these are the best ones I’ve tried to so far! The other ones I’ve tried had too much of a strong glue, […]

Every Month is Oktoberfest

I have been gone for a loooong time, and then I just popped up with a video! I have barely worn nail polish the last 6 months, life has just been too busy to live, I’m not kidding. But I filmed a “get ready with me” video where I talk a little about what’s been […]

New Orleans gradient

I haven’t posted nails since February! Like I said in my previous post I’m crazy busy these days so I only do my nails about once a week :-O whaaaAAAAAAAAaaat? I bought the New Orleans collection in early march, and I’ve been trying to swatch it when ever I have time. But when I got […]

Marble nail fail

I guess I’m being too hard on my self when I’m calling this a “fail”, because it’s not really bad, it’s just now I had imagined! I think it would look better/more like I wanted it to, if I didn’t use as much black polish, I wanted more of the white base to show through. […]

OPI – Purple Palazzo Pants rhinestones manicure nail art

Everyday glam

Sometimes you just want to glam it up just a little bit! So I used OPI – Purple Palazzo Pants and slapped on some rhinestones! Because I’m also patiently waiting for spring. That’s a lie, I’m not patient at all! Related posts: Dancing with the stars Elegantly blinged Doodle Flowers with tutorial Floral water color

OPI - Haven't The Foggiest

OPI – Haven’t The Foggiest

OPI – Haven’t The Foggiest 2 coats + top coat Another polish I didn’t really have a proper swatch of, so I swatched it for my fall favorites video and figured it deserves it’s own post! Because this is my favorite silver nail polish, it’s a cool toned silver and the shimmer in it is what […]

OPI - My Private Jet swatch nail polish manicure

Pink Private Jet

Since I was already wearing OPI – My Private Jet, I figured I’d dress it up a little and wear it over the weekend! I did some simple triangles using IsaDora – Pink Crush and I love this combination! I had imagined it with a gold textured polish, but it turns out I don’t have a gold […]

OPI DS Magic swatch review nail polish manicure

OPI DS Magic – Swatch

OPI DS Magic 2 coats + top coat. Magic is a stunning deep blue nail polish, it’s packed with shimmer (or diamond dust). But it also shifts to purple! I was not able to capture the duochrome in these photos, but you can see it in the bottle. And it was actually very visible on the […]

OPI - My Private Jet swatch nail polish manicure

OPI – My Private Jet

Since the only swatch I have posted of the absolutely gorgeous OPI – My Private Jet is super old and kinda crappy, I did new swatches for my fall favorites video. And since it’s so stunning, I wanted to share my new swatches with you, because this polish deserves it 😉 My swatches are with two […]

OPI DS Coronation swatch nail polish

OPI DS Coronation – Swatch

OPI DS Coronation 3 coats + TC. This beauty is a cool silver holographic polish, I did have to use three coats for full opacity and I love it on its own. But it would be perfect as a silver holographic topper over a silver base, it would probably look almost the same! The formula is […]
