Gold Summer Nails

Sunday, July 13, 2014


It's been in the mid-90s all week where I live! I thought that called for some summer nail art...

Polishes Used:
JINsoon Coral Peony | Deborah Lippmann She Drives Me Crazy | Wet n Wild French White Creme | NYC Hamptons Peach | Wet n Wild On a Road Trip | Deborah Lippmann Blue Orchid | Deborah Lippmann Spring Buds | Nails Inc Queen Victoria Street

I've been seeing the tape cross pattern on my middle finger everywhere on Instagram in the last couple of months, and I finally got around to recreating it! 
The tape placement was trickier than I expected. Also, by the time I had filled in the non-taped spaces with polish, other parts of the polish had dried and so the tape made the polish all wonky when I pulled it up. It gives it a kind of distressed, old-gold sort of look -- I can live with it, I guess.

That's Deborah Lippmann She Drives Me Crazy. It's gorgeoussss

For some reason this reminds me of something by Lilly Pulitzer. It's not floral and pastel like their signature pieces, but it just kind of feels Lilly-ish. Hmm.

Coral Peony is gorgeous too :O

In other news, I redesigned the blog for like the 500th time! I added fancy drop down menus and sticky navigation and a new related posts widget and some other not-as-fun stuff, I hope you guys like it!!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Omg! This is an excellent idea to make a dotticure on a foil nailpolish! Love it!

  2. This is such a cute and detailed manicure!
    I like the colors that you used, they match perfecly together :)

    Thank you so much for sharing this manicure with us!

  3. This is very creative and looks so pretty. I love the base colour! Oh and I like the new blog design, I spotted it as soon as I came over here :) x

  4. HAHA when I read your first sentence I thought you meant it was some sort of "let's celebrate the time period the 90's" thing at your house or whatever, until I realized you probably just meant "the weather is hot hot hot here!" Cute nail art (Coral Peony does indeed look gorgeous!) and I love the new lay-out! I immediately noticed some things had changed - I think the new font of your header looks really cute!

    1. Ahaha, that's not exactly what I meant -- but I'd rather be celebrating the 1990s than sweating and lying around! Thank you so much :)

  5. These are really neat! I love the colors you used (:


I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
