You have seen my previous two Michael Kors Nail Polishes already (see HERE and HERE). It's time to share the 3rd one as well. It's a pretty maroon shade called ENVY. The color is so vibrant and rich that I love this shade and decided to create a pretty animal print nail art with it, instead of a plain swatch.

Summer Yellow

So you all must have seen my yellow gingham nails turn into 3D lemon nails and now I have another version - summer yellow nails. My nails are curvy, not flat and for that reason, big 3D nail art decorations will not stay flat on them, which leads to very annoying scenario of hair getting stuck in my 3D art everytime I brush them or run my hands through my hair (a habit). So after few hours of wearing my 3D lemon nail art, I decided to get rid of the 3D lemons (so sorry to see them go) and paint rest of the nails with the red flowers. Outcome - cheerful, summery floral yellow nails. Now that's what I call a makeover - one nail art X3 (times three).

When life gives you Lemons...

When life gives you LEMONS...make lemon themed nail art :D That's how the saying goes; I'm 89% sure that's right. Ha Ha !

After painting my nails with yellow gingham print, it looked all too plain and I wanted to add a little something to it. And then it clicked to me - I had some lemon 3D nail art decorations lying around, which I hadn't used at all. So I decided to add them to my nails and some more red flowers around it. Do you gals ( and guys ) like the final product? If you would like to recreate this nail art, you can get the 3D lemon decorations and more from BornPrettyStore.

Yellow Gingham

I have been planning to do red gingham print nails for a long, long time but when I finally decided to do them, for some reason, I chose the color yellow to proceed with. Polishes used - Butter London's Cotton Buds and Zoya's Darcy.

Very simple and very plain but very cheerful, don't you think?

I recently had the opportunity to get my hands on few MICHAEL KORS nail polishes. One of them is this lovely orange shade is called PASSION. Brilliant color and a great addition to my orange polishes collection. I decided to create a lovely summery orange floral design with this shade. Hope you all like it.

Dots and Hearts

Hello Friend's, today's nail art is a design which pop=up in my mind randomly. It's a combination of dots and hearts. I love the way it turned out and I love the way all the colors used in this design compliment each other. You can see another design using the same color's HERE.

Pink Gradient Dotticure

When in doubt always go for pink and this is what today’s dotticure is about. This nail art is from my archives and I created gradient dotticure using different pink shades few years ago. The base coat is creamy white from Revlon called Pure Pearl. The pink polishes are China Glaze’s , Revlon’s Cupid and Plum Seduction. A simple yet pretty nail art.

Mint is THE COLOR of the season. Everywhere you look there is something mint-colored peeking at you. Well there you go, reason enough to deck my nails with some mint. See a similar color-blocked look from me HERE. The polishes used are Urban Outfitter's Flip Flop (See it's swatch HERE), Revlon's Jaded and Butter London's Cotton Buds.

Coral and Blue

It's almost Summer and I wanted to try a nautical nail art. It's been a while since I tried one. See the last one HERE. But this time instead of creating an all nautical look, I decided to do something different by adding coral to it. The end result, I am not sure if qualifies for a nautical nail art but I am happy with it. I got tons of compliments on it too. So it's a win win and I am in love with this color combo now, hence the title Coral and Blue.
