Fun Neon nails featuring Twinkled T Daisy vinyls!

Guysss why do I keep doing nothing but floral nail art?! Lol… I just really, really love flowers I guess.  I ordered a pretty China Glaze pastel neon collection off of ebay and this was the perfect way to use them all in one mani!  For the colors I used Belle of a Baller, That’ll Peach You, Casual Friday, Spring Jungle, Chalk Me Up!, My Sweet Lady, and Are You Orchid-ing Me?  The nail vinyls I used were SO easy to apply.  Just make sure that you put down a quick dry top coat on top of your base color and that the top coat is completely dry before you put on the vinyls and voilá!  Instant nail art!  Let me know what you think of this look in the comments below!
I love how vertical gradients look!  If you’re interested in any of the products mentioned above, I’ll leave links to where you can purchase them!

Happy Spring! Colorful floral nail art to ring in the new season!

Hi there everyone!  Just thought I’d share some floral nail art I did today with you all!  I am SO happy that it’s going to get warmer and that winter will be over.  I’ll finally be able to get back into my walk routine and shed a few pounds before summer.  Base color for this look is OPI Gelshine What’s a Tire Jack? and the rest is acrylic paint.  I used Winstonia Berry Wine and Bamboorific nailart brushes for the detail.

Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!

Fun stamping mani using MoYou London Holy Shapes 08!

Hi everyone!  Just thought I’d pop in to share what’s on my nails!  I’ve been aching to use my most favorite blue ever and this mani hit the spot for it.  I used Essie Salt Water Happy, Maki Me Happy, and Picture Polish Talisman for this fun mani.


So, what do you think of this nail-art?  I’ve been more active on my Instagram lately with nail-art (my IG handle is @nailsbylatoya06) mainly because I’ve just about used up my free space on here.  Thanks so much for reading and talk to you all soon!

There you have it!  My picks from this collection are Morgan le Fay, King Arthur, and Lancelot.  I have nothing like them in my insane collection and the fact that they can double as stamping polish is a win in my book.  Stay tuned for some nail art with these beauties within the next few days.  I also done a live swatch video of all of these polishes on my Youtube channel if you want to see how they apply!

Current NOTD and why I’ve slowed down posting.

Hi there everyone!  I have a few things to talk about in my post today so bear with me.  Yesterday I decided to change out my manicure and put on a new China Glaze nail polish from their spring 2017 collection.  This color is SO beautiful!  Awesome formula and perfect for spring.  The color is called “Too Much of a Good Fling.”  Isn’t the name cute?  I’ll go ahead and post my pictures below.
china_glaze_too_much_of_a_good_fling
china_glaze_too_much_of_a_good_fling_1As you can see, my nails are round in these pictures.  My nails have been super brittle and breaking very easy.  It’s super depressing to not be able to hold a consistent nail shape for a long time.  When I wear square nails, the corners chip…. When I wear pointy nails the tips chip, and when I wear round nails I really don’t care for how they look on me.  SO last night I decided to do something that was super painful.  I made my nailbeds shorter by pushing the skin back under my nails and filing them square.  Once they grow out a bit more and heal I’ll change my mani, but that’s going to be a while.  This is the shortest my nails have EVER been.  Take a look down below to see what I mean.

Also, another reason why I’ve slowed down posting is I”m getting close the my limit on images here on my blog.  I’m going to have sit down in a few days and start deleting old posts to make more space… Or resize every single picture to a smaller file size (which I should be doing everytime anyways.)  It’ll be about 3 or 4 days before under my nails heal and I can put acetone on my nails without it hurting.  I’ll talk to you all until then!  Thanks for your time and support!

Rose Gold Roses NOTD!

Hey there everyone!  I bought some nail vinyls a few weeks back and decided to whip em out and play.  I have to say, they worked amazing!  These vinyls are by What’s Up Nails and are called their Rose Petals Stencils.  Stay tuned at the end of this post for a Youtube video showing how easy these are to use!  For the base color I used OPI Oh My Majesty! and for the roses I used Pahlish Quicksand.  On to the pictures!
rose_manirose_mani_01What do you think of my new nail shape?  I’m really loving it so far!  I think once my  nails get a bit longer I’ll be more comfortable with my new talons.  Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!
