Designers [Re]designed: Proenza Schouler Inspired

Hello loves!

I am finally back after an almost two month long hiatus. I hate to give excuses and I know you hate hearing them but I have been busy with personal life so nail polish life had to take a backseat. I promise I will make it up to you guys, especially since I never got to my one year blogiversary giveaway! Now that school is out and I have all summer to focus on blogging, I promise I have much more to come.

I really love when bloggers have a "theme week" so I decided to have another one of my own. "Designers [Re]designed." So what if it's cheesy? I thought it was a cute name...

I had so much fun with my Vera Bradley nails that I'm going all out and having a designer week! All week long I'll be posting designs inspired by some of my favorite designers and designers I've never even heard of. 

For this manicure I started off with a base of Diamond Cosmetics Decadence. Then, using a nail art brush I created the stripes, creating a T with the yellow (Barielle Soul-er Powered), black, and white. Then I started creating the other components of this mani, such as the colorblock squares on the sides and the angle on the top half. I finished off with a topcoat.

This was a very hard design to achieve. Actually, it's not that it was hard but getting the symmetry right was difficult. I'm still not 100% happy with it but I think it turned out great for the most part!


Brown & Blue

Brown and blue could possibly be the prettiest color combination I have ever seen. I've always loved it. I especially love seeing this color combo in nurseries and baby items.

I know the title of this post isn't my usual, creative title but I couldn't really think of anything else to call this. I guess being straight forward is better than "nursery inspired brown and blue nail art".

There has been no sun all week so these pictures were all taken in low lighting.

For this manicure I used Zoya Kristen as the base. Then I took my nail art brush, a dotting tool and Diamond Cosmetics Decadence to create the dots and lines on the sides of each finger nail. I finished off with a topcoat.

This is yet another simple look, but I'm really liking it.

Stay tuned to my blog, I have something exciting coming up! (;

Diamond Cosmetics Decadence + Liebster Award

I have already received this award but its great to receive another one! Thank you so much Carla for nominating me for it!

"The Liebster Award is designed to bring well deserved additional recognition to those bloggers with less than 300 followers. If you receive the award, link back to the blogger that nominated you and nominate 3 more blogs."

I'm breaking the rules and giving this award to any of my readers that own a blog with under 300 followers. Any blog owner knows that owning and running a blog is a lot harder than it looks so I think you all deserve it. (:
Now for today's manicure...
Brown is a color I have been wanting to try on my nails for a really long time. I wasn't too sure if I'd like it against my skin but Decadence proved me wrong. I haven't tried any other Diamond Cosmetics polishes before but I'm glad I have this beauty.

Diamond Cosmetics Decadence is a beautiful brown shimmer. Maybe it's just me but I see a bit of a red shimmer in it. Decadence applied like a dream! 2 thin, opaque coats and I was ready to go. It also dried quickly and was so shiny on it's own. The pictures above are with no top coat.

What is another pretty brown polish that you know of? I'm dying to add more to my collection!
