My Birthday mani! Powder Perfect Widow’s Watch

Hi everyone!  My birthday is this Friday, so I decided to go ahead and put on the polish that I want to wear for it.  Powder Perfect Widow’s Watch is a deep holographic purple that has a gold flash when the light hits it right.  So stunning!  You could easily get away with 1 coat of this beauty, but I opted for 2.  I really can’t wait to see if it stamps!

Isn’t this polish beautiful?!  I turn 29 years young on Friday and am trying out real sushi for the first time.  What would you all recommend for a beginner?  I’ve had a California Roll before and love those, but I know that’s not real sushi (the California rolls here have imitation crab meat).  Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!

Negative Space nails for the weekend!

Hi you all!! I got my preorder in from Beautometry and I am SO in love with my new polishes from Il Etait Un Vernis!  I bought Teach Me Tonight, Truth or Dare, and Make a Wish.  Pictures below of what I got!

The first of the three that I was excited most to use was Truth or Dare.  It was opaque in 1 coat!!!!  I used tiny black glitters to add some more fun to this mani.


What do you think of this manicure?  Is this something you would wear?  I’ll have a video up on my Youtube next Friday for this look if  you’re interested.  Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!

Spring time gradient and Origami nail art featuring Picture Polish!

Hi you all!  I’ve been craving colorful nails and this mani hit the spot!  I especially love the little origami stamps that I used over the background.  The colors used were Picture Polish Sorbet and Honeydew and for the stamping I used Harunouta Origami stamping plate.
What do you think of this mani?  I normally don’t do diagonal gradients, but I really love the way this looks!  Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!

Freehand Quirky floral nail art!

Hi again everyone!  I bought a new nail art brush the other day at Sally’s and holy cow it’s amazing!  I’m definitely heading back there to buy back ups.  For today’s manicure I used Essie Coconut Cove, Lounge Lover, Off Tropic, Groove is in the Heart, In the Cab-ana, and brown acrylic paint.  On to the pictures!


What do you think of this mani?  I really love how the flowers pop with the greens leaves and foilage.  If you do freehand nail art and are looking for a great brush, head to Sally’s Beauty Supply and look for Winning Nails Pencil brush.  Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!

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!
