Guest Post: Marisa from Hey, Darling Polish!

Hi! Today's guest poster has some really fun nails for you....

Hello darlings!

I'm Marisa and I run the little nail blog, Hey, Darling Polish! I saw that Lucy was looking for guest posts and I wanted to help her out! I think that writing guest posts is fun so I was all over it. 

A quick about me: I'm a 20 year old, Graphic and Media Design student. I like having fun and love having bright and often glittery nails and even brighter hair (I have some neon green in my hair right now and it seriously glows oops haha).

Anyways, let's get to the nails!

Here's what I used:

So, I decided to combine some of my favorite things and I ended up with this design. The base for these nails was done with the watercolor technique, which I think created a fun color mix. When that dried, I placed striping tape in various designs and used the Pipe Dream Polish over it.

I like trying to incorporate my indie polishes into my nail art since I feel bad that they just kind of put to the side when it comes to nail art. I love the sparkly contrast that the purple provided against the base! These were super fun to wear!

I always put a song at the end of my posts, so I figured I would share one with you all:

Lights - Lions!

Thanks for having me Lucy and hope you all enjoyed this post! 

-Marisa! (:

These are super fun, I agree it's a great way to use those beautiful indie polishes! Thank you so much, Marisa!

If you haven't already, check out Marisa's blog -- she always has such original ideas (most of them get put into my "inspiration" folder, haha)! She does this "Music Monday" series where she bases her nail art off of album covers and it's AMAZING.
