Guest Post: Casey Lane Loves Polish

Hi Everyone! So while I am on vacation, I've asked a few of my favorite bloggers to guest post for me! Today I have my favorite indie polish lover, Casey from Casey Lane Loves Polish!

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be guest posting for Heather today! When I asked Heather what she wanted me to do she said "something summery!" Well, luckily I had just received my Pip Dream Polish A Night In Vegas Collection, which has some fantastic neons in it. Here is what I came up with. 



For these nails I used the "dry brush", "distressed" or "grunge nail" technique. I started with a base of OPI Alpine Snow and added a quick dry topcoat (HK Girl by Glisten & Glow is my favorite). I like doing that when I'm doing nail art so that my base is set and I don't get any white polish in my neons! I then opened all of my neon polishes. One at a time I took the brush out of the bottle and wiped almost all of the polish off on the neck of the bottle; I really mean almost all, get as much off of there as you can. Then I gently swiped the brush on the nail, barely touching it. I went in different directions with each color, filling in where I felt it needed it. Chalkboard Nails has a really great tutorial on this technique here

I used all 7 of the neons from the Night In Vegas Collection. You can buy Pipe Dream Polish from their website here

Once I was done and my colors were dry, I added another coat of HK Girl and let that dry, then because I can't help myself I added a coat of Nicole by OPI Matte Topcoat. 

I love how these turn out! I think I'll wear this design over and over all summer! Thank you Heather for asking me to guest post while you're on vacation! I hope you're having a great time!

Thanks for reading!

Neon, Glitter & Zebra

*Press Sample*

Hello beautiful people! Yesterday I showed you all the new Poptastic Remix from Color Club. I love the glitters and felt super inspired to use them somehow in nail art, so I decided to do some zebra print over one of them, and it turned into a really awesome look!

Guest Post: Amber from Nails Like Lace

Hi Everyone! So while I am on vacation, I've asked a few of my favorite bloggers to guest post for me! Today I have my polish BFF Amber from Nails Like Lace
 
Hey lovely Peace, Love & Polish’ers! Amber here from Nails Like Lace while Heather is away.
For today’s post, since I call Heather the zebra print queen, I decided to have a go at it myself, hoping to at least meet her standards.

Being that red is Heather’s favorite color, I started with a base of Wet’n’Wild Red Red, and used black acrylic paint for the zebra print.

After that was dry and smoothed over with a coat of topcoat, I braved the task of free handing a few symbols over the stripes.

I used Zoya Trixie for my peace sign, heart, ampersand, and polish bottle; for a Peace, Love & Polish appropriate mani! All finished off with a coat of Seche Vite.

I absolutely love how this mani turned out, and am so happy to be able to post it here! 
Thank you to Heather for letting me visit!
