Nail Art Ideas Linkup

I love nail art challenges, but I'm so bad at finishing them! After searching around the other day for challenge, I came upon one from The Crafty Nail that looked like fun, without the pressure of sticking to a challenge - my kinda link up!
Here is the inspiration for ideas for this link up
The Crafty Nail
And here is my interpretation of this week's idea - hot pink courtesy of KB Shimmer's 2014 limited edition anniversary trio. I used all three of their polishes, Beach Please (hot pink) Shore Thing ("aqua-mint cream with blue-green undertones") and Hexy Bikini (EPIC holo glitter) 
I used Beach Please and Shore Thing on my first and ring fingers to make water-marble decals from Betty's Beauty Bombs (tutorial found here),  and straight nail vinyls from NailVinyls.com on my pinkie and thumb. I had a few smudges in the water-marble decals, as this was my first go at them, but overall I'm really happy with them, it's a great technique. 
My pinkie has a base of Beach Please with Shore Thing on top, and the opposite on my thumb. I LOVE how Shore Thing brings out the purple leanings in Beach Please, it shifts it just a little, without compromising the color entirely. 

And HELLOOOOO sexy Hexy! I mean seriously, how awesome is that glitter??!? Two coats, my polish loving friends, TWO coats - regular coats too, not some heavy handed shove-all-the-glitter-on-there brushing. If you love glitter, and frankly if you don't...well, let's not go there...it's a must have. 
All three of these polishes can be found on their website, Their polish formula is just fabulous, easy to apply, dries well and quickly, and their brushes are wonderful. 

Don't forget to check out the other blogs in the link up!
Cheers til next time xoxo
