Penguins and Gold Snowflakes

I just received these adorable Born Pretty Snowflake decals just in time for some cute winter nail art. These were delicate but sturdy decals, and I handled them mainly with a pair of tweezers. I did have to press them down a bit against my nail with an orange stick and sealed them with a nice layer of top coat.

I thought the gold would look nice against a soft almost white gray so I decided to go with this gorgeous piCture pOlish Lakodom, packed with a ton of subtle micro-glitter. It took me 3 coats to reach full opacity, the formula was easy to work with and did not clump up at all. Yet another excellent polish from the ladies at piCture pOlish

On my middle two fingers I used piCture pOlish Bette to create a gradient for the background of my penguins. I free-handed the penguins using Julep Daria, Julep Winter, China Glaze Liquid Leather, and China Glaze Snow.

Julep Frozen Anna’s Dress Tutorial

This last look for the Julep takeover is inspired by Anna of Frozen.

Frozen Anna Dress Inspired Petite Peinture Nail Art

I took cues from her dress (see picture below) and adapted them into a nail art tutorial for you guys. :-) I loved the detailing in the embroidery paired with the light teal.

Plus, she has a cute little magenta cape with that she wears on occasion with the same subtle detailing along the trim.

Julep Starbucks Holiday Halfmoons

Julep generously sent us each some nail polish and their Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum which I already use regularly. I love using it in combination with lotion and Burt’s Bees Cuticle Butter to keep my cuticles in shape.

This look is inspired by the Starbucks holiday cup. I love Starbucks’ packaging designs as well as their interior design (I’m a sucker for the reclaimed industrial aesthetic for interiors). This year features lots of bursts with subtle color contrasts. So, a lot of hot pink and dark red on bright red and lots of sparkly gold. I’ve taken their holiday cup design (I’m holding the grande cup) and adapted it to a half-moon look on my nails.

Also, have I mentioned how much I love Julep January (gorgeous bright red cream and Julep Sienna (shimmery gold)? Probably one too many times, but I absolutely love those two polishes.

Recently Starbucks opened a new shop in the Capitol Hill neighborhood here in Seattle, WA that combines the roastery and the coffee shop aspect.

Daisy’s Top 5 Polishes

Although Rathy and I both have a pretty enormous collection, there are a few polishes that seem to always make their way into our manicures. We thought it would be nice to share our top 5 polishes of all time. These are polishes that we either use all the time in nail art looks or go-to colors when we just need something we know we can rely on or polishes that hold some sort of sentimental value.

Here are my top 5 of all time (individual swatches plus details in the read more link). :)
