1 design, 3 ways! Floral lead lighting using Picture Polish

Hey ladies! I always wonder how something would look had I used another color, so I thought I'd show you how a different color combo can make a design look completely different! I used Picture Polish Cosmos, Ocean, Shocked, Shy Violet and Sea Jewel for a sort of lead lighting nail art. I got all of these from Pretty Polish. Oh and it glows in the dark too, so come check it out!

Dragonfly nails inspired by @lieve91 (glow in the dark!)

Okay, so there's this lady on Instagram who I REALLY admire, @lieve91. She's like my nail art crush, if you will. Her nail art designs are always so flawlessly executed that I have recreation anxiety, meaning I'm scared to recreate any of her designs because it will never live up to the original. Butttt.... she posted a few of her 'fails' a loooong while back, and one of them just really jumped out at me. It's been with me ever since and here is my version of the design! Click to see the glow pic!

Ikea Alex for nail polish storage!

Hey ladies! I was in desperate need of some more space to store my polish, preferably something stylish and practical. I was looking for something with shallow drawers because I like to lay my polishes flat, so I can look at the pretty colors and determine a palette for my art. After a looooong while of googling, visiting thrift stores and eyeballing other people's polish storage, I chose one of the Alex drawer units from Ikea (there are several models). I want to share my experiences with you, so click, click!
