Color Street Hollywood Kiss

On this fine Monday morning, I’m wearing Color Street Hollywood Kiss! This is a hot pink french mani look. French manicures with Color Street are so freaking easy and I still can’t get over the fact that there is no dry time. This is the fastest french mani I’ve done in my entire freaking life. It might be the fastest ever in the history of mankind.

This Nail Art Hack is Going to Change Stamping Forever

OMG. I am so excited about this. One of my Facebook fans had the idea of stamping on top of Color Street nail wraps before you put them on your nails. (I tried stamping the traditional way in this post.) If stamping on top of the wraps before putting them on your nails works…then you will NEVER HAVE TO CLEAN UP AGAIN.

That’s right. You heard me. All those “cleanup shamers” in the polish groups who criticize your accuracy….well…this solves all of that!

For this mani, I used Color Street Vienna Snow because I am in the mood for some black and white nails!

color-street-vienna-snow stamping-on-nail-wraps

Here’s video proof that this is how I did this mani!

The french mani wraps have CLEAR WRAPS. That means you can stamp like this on top of ANY COLOR IN YOUR COLLECTION.

THIS IS HUGE YOU GUYS. HUGE.

and the french mani wraps are buy 1 get 1 free. :O :O

Color Street Park Slope Party

As a reward for wearing Rose Path yesterday, I let myself grab Color Street Park Slope Party as a reward. color-street-nail-wraps-review color-street-nail-wraps-park-slope-party

 

Color Street Rose Path – Help this mani!

I decided to try one of the Color Street patterns that I thought was a little too ‘grandma’ for my taste. Today, that design is Rose Path.

color-street-review

The metallic accents liven this up a bit and gives it a youthful flair, but I still think those flowers look like my grandmother’s couch. I like that there are solid silver metallic wraps in this pack to break up the roses.color-street-nail-wraps-rose-path

Ah shit. I just had the coolest idea. I should have stamped some skulls and crossbones on the solid silver ones. That nail art would have been a cool juxtaposition between grandmas and punk.

I guess I better order another set! LOL.

What would YOU do on the solid silver nails to youthen this up a bit??
(Yes, youthen is a word. I just made it one.)

If you order this set and do an awesome manicure with it, make sure to come show it off in my private Facebook group! :D

Color Street Alpine Freeze

Today, I’m going to show you Color Street Alpine Freeze. This is a silver glitter with art-deco purple and black lines. This is something I probably could have made with striping tape, but it would have taken 4-evah. color-street-alpine-freeze

Since this is glitter, it removes the same way glitter nail polish does. (Which makes sense because Color Street is made with real nail lacquer and not like plastic or something like other nail wraps.) Anyway…here’s the technique I use to remove nail polish. (Click here.)color-street-nail-wraps

Color street is buy 3 get 1 free. Most people can get two manicures out of one set of strips. Each set comes with 16 nails but if your nails are short enough then you can use one strip with two nails. My nails are short enough to do this and my nails wouldn’t be considered “short.” color-street-nail-wraps-alpine-freeze

The longest I’ve worn a set of these Color Street nail wraps is a full week. They actually still looked great by the end of the week, but I wanted to sport a new mani. :)

Color Club Old Soul and Nail Hugs

{Purchased by Me}

Today is a #lazybetty nail art style! I started with two coats of Color Club Old Soul which is a color changing polish. It changes from light peach to a nice pink.

Here is what it looks like right after I dip my tips in ice water.color-club-old-soul-swatch

And then here’s what it looks like after my whole hand is in ice water. It was hard to get this photograph because it’s so hot here! My nails warmed up so quickly!color-club-old-soul-cold

Then, I put Nail Hugs (which is this weird sticker thing – but not a nail wrap) on top!nail-hugs-lace-design nail-hugs-review

I would have liked to see more of the pink when I was wearing this. I think I should save the rest of my color changing polishes for the winter so I can actually enjoy the changes! :)

Red and Black Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Purchased by Me}

Today’s mani starts with two coats of Sally Hansen Haute Springs which was sent to me as a press sample. Then, I used this stars design and some black stamping polish to create this look!

Stamping on top of Color Street French Riviera

{Affiliate Links}

As you know by now, I’ve been using a ton of Color Street nail wraps. Well, I wanted to see if I could actually do nail art on top of them. I picked Color Street French Riviera because it’s a lovely blue to silver glitter ombre. I thought it would look pretty underneath a black line stamping design.

I chose Cici&Sisi Plate 13 and Konad Black as my stamping supplies. The awesome thing about this technique is it really cuts down on the time it takes to do some nail art because you don’t have to wait for the base color to dry!! This is going to be a huge time saver for me, yet I still get to be creative and do my favorite nail art technique!! I used Seche Vite to seal in the nail art. It works well on the Color Street wraps as a base because they’re actually made of real polish so they don’t act weird under other nail polish stuff.

Color Street Southwest Dream

Today I’m going to show you Color Street Southwest Dream. This design is inspired by the turquoise jewelry that is common in the Southwest. The finish is a gorgeous shimmer. Normally, polishes with this vibrant of a teal color would stain my nails. I’m so glad I don’t have to worry about that with Color Street. I still have stains on my nails from polishes I used months ago! :Ocolor-street-Southwest-Dream

Color Street Sakura Festival

I have another gorgeous Color Street manicure to show you today. The polka dots go well with my new branding! LOL. This mani is called Color Street Sakura Festival. After doing this mani, I still have four wraps left which means I can still use these as accent nails in other manicures or on my toes! :O All you have to do is store them in an airtight container to keep them from drying out.  color-street-sakura-festival color-street-sakura-festival2

What do you think of today’s Color Street manicure? All designs are buy 3 get 1 free so you can be set for the whole month or longer!

Color Street Wraps VS Other Wraps

Today I’m going to show you a new Color Street Wraps design and I’m going to show you proof as to why I love them so much more than other wraps.

The application instructions for all brands are the same – Press on to the nail and file off the excess. It really can’t get much more simple than that. Some brands say you can get better results if you get the wraps warm first. Otherwise, the instructions are the same across the board….But the results of the different brands tell another story.

On the left is another brand of nail wraps. I’ve had a lot of practice with wraps and the one on the left is a pain in the ass. It doesn’t sit flat on my super curved nails. It puckers at the apex and at the edges. I can barely even wear them.

On the right are the Color Street Wraps in Mauna Loa. As you can see, there is NO pucker; it’s completely flat against my nail, even at the edges. I didn’t use a heating device or anything. No top coat or basecoat needed. It is so easy-peasy-mac-and-cheesy.

color-street-nail-wraps-versus-others

Here are the Color Street Wraps from the usual angle. This design is super pretty. It looks like a glittery watermarble. This design is called Mauna Loa and you can find it at www.mycolorstreet.com/lazybetty.

These wraps are buy 3, get 1 free for all but the french tips. The french tips are buy 1 get 1 free!! :O color-street-mauna-loa-review color-street-mauna-loa

I can’t believe how quickly I can do a gorgeous manicure with these wraps. There is no headache and they last much longer than polish. Even when you play with doggies all day!color-street-review

Color Club Shine Theory

{Purchased by Me}{Affiliate Link}

I haven’t gotten much into the thermal polish world but I decided to dive in and buy the mood-changing collection. Tonight I have for you Color Club Shine Theory including nail art and video! :O :O (OMG. It’s almost like I’m trying or something. gross.)

Shine Theory is NEON yellow when warm and a lovely light blue when cold.

color-club-shine-theory color-club-shine-theory-swatch

I grabbed It Girl Pomelo Stamping Polish because it matched warm Shine Theory fairly closely.  Then, I used a wavy design from It Girl Plate IG120 to stamp.it-girl-plateig120

Then, when my nails get cold, the design shows up! :) :) :Othermal-nail-polish color-club-thermal-polish

Anchors Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Affiliate Link}

It’s getting warm so it’s the perfect weather for spending time on and around the water. But don’t get swept away by the currents! This anchor nail art will keep you nice a stable. :)Fun fact: When I was little, my parents always warned me about the “under toe.” (The current that goes the opposite direction and can suck you out to the ocean.) However, I thought they said “under TOAD” and I was petrified of these little toads grabbing my feet and kidnapping me.

Anyway…this mani starts with two coats of Zoya River from the Wanderlust Collection. The stamping polish is Konad White and the design is from the wonderful It Girl IG119

Rose Gold French Tips

How on God’s green earth have I never paired rose gold and light blue together? Have I been living under a rock? What is wrong with me? The instant I paired these two together, it instantly became my newest favorite color combination. So much so, that light blue and rose gold are the color scheme for the Erin Condren Life Planner I ordered for 2018!! (That link has a coupon for $10 off. You’re welcome. :) )

I started with two coats of Trust Fund Beauty I Give Good Tweet from a recent Ipsy Bag. Then, I used a makeup sponge to dab on Glam Polish Lilo, You Lolo to the tips.

The base for this mani is a Cosmeceuticals polish I got in the April Ipsy bag. I don’t know the name of it because I threw the box away! :O I didn’t realize the name wasn’t on the bottle. Note to makers: Always put your name on the bottle!

I was in Sally Beauty and saw this top coat from Seche that I’d never seen before: Seche Vive. It’s kinda like their UV-free gel topcoat. It works similarly to their regular topcoat. I didn’t notice much of a difference.seche-vive
