Hey everyone! Here’s the official wrap up of my January 2018 nail looks!
This was the first week of 2018 and I wanted to come in like a cheetah, LOL! I was starting a new job and really wanted to come into my new space with strength and courage (and wisdom too!). I was inspired by one of my fabulous cheetah print tops:
I used Essie Polish Gel Couture in “To Have and To Gold”. The cheetah pattern was achieved with a nail stencil and black nail polish.
I REALLY love how this turned out!
All sorts of things catch my attention and serve as inspiration for my nail looks. For week 2, the inspiration came from this little purple jar that I think I got from the Dollar Tree.
Although the colors I chose aren’t exactly the same as the jar, they’re a very pretty purple hue. I love how the glitter polish was very complimentary to the base color that I chose. It’s almost like they were made to go together.
The look came out very pretty! I will say that my index fingernail did not hold that glitter polish very well. I’m thinking glitter should stay on my pinkie nails from now on. I used nail stencils again to create the starry look. It was hard to get the stars very crisp. Sometimes stencils let you down, but I rocked my starry nails anyway. The sparkly color is “Divine Shine” and the base color is “Pamplona Purple”. The silver color is “My Silk Tie”.
Rose gold has been all the rage for some time now. I’m a bit late to the game but I picked up some rose gold pumps from Steve Madden right before the holidays last year. I tell ya, these are one of my favorite pairs of shoes right now. They’re not the most comfortable, but they are SOOOO stylish.
Imagine how excited I was to see that my new favorite nail polish brand had a rose gold polish!!! It’s such a pretty color!
My only bit of concern was what color to put the rose gold with! I decided on white and I think I made the right choice. The white background on my accent nail made the rose gold POP! This polish wears very well. So well that I almost wore this nail look for two weeks straight. There were some chips, but so few that I was seriously considering wearing it for one more week. Most polish never lasts that long.
I had a little fun on my Instagram page when I posted week 4’s nail look. The name of the line “Dirty Unicorns” made me wonder what the heck was a dirty unicorn exactly? I made a cute little meme and posted on my IG page:
The polish is by a brand called Nailsinc. I came across it in Sephora while shopping with my daughter. They had some AWESOME colors! Lots of glitter and holographic ones. There was one that I REALLY wanted but they didn’t have anymore. I hope I can pick it up one of these days, but this here color “Rainbow Hooves” is beautiful!
For the final nail look of January, I came across a beautiful ring that I forgot I had! It has a very pretty cobalt blue stone on it.
I didn’t quite have a blue polish that matched the stone, but I happened to be a Sally Beauty Supply one day and you already know what happened…
I picked up these polishes from Orly in “Royal Navy” and “Halo” and quickly put together this very pretty look!
I LOVED all of the looks I came up with this month. Which one is your favorite? Please let me know in the comment section.
