Manicure Monday (SHARK NAILS) and Monthly Pedicure (Holographic Toes)

So, while I did my nails last night it got late - I had to decide between blog post and bed (clearly bed won) and that make's me a day late posting my nails!! 

This month I took it is easy with my Monthly Pedicure and went with holographic nail polish! Here is a look at the products I used:

  • OPI Top Coat
  • Glisten and Glow "First in Line" - this was a limited edition holo from a Black Friday collection in 2014
  • Formula X Nail Cleanser and Base Coat

Here are the steps I used for this Month's Pedicure:
1. Nail Cleanser and Base Coat
2. 2/3 coats of holographic polish (I used 2 and thought it was very covering)
3. Let dry and Top Coat

It was very simple but this polish is gorgeous:

My lighting does not do this justice - it's lovely! 

And for my Manicure Monday, I had to use my newest nail wraps and do SHARK NAILS! I know Shark Week was in July, but I did not have these in time and they are perfectly summery too! 

Here are the products I used for this week's Manicure Monday:
  • OPI Top Coat
  • Formula X Nail Cleanser and Base Coat
  • Tattify Wraps in "Jaws"
  • Ciate polish in "boom box"
  • ***I didn't actually use this polish as it turned out to not be dark enough, instead I used Deborah Lippoman in "Video Killed the Radio Star" - unpictured but it is a dark blue*** 
Here are the steps I used for this week's Manicure:

For the nail wraps:
1. Nail cleanser and Base Coat
2. Remove wrap from sheet and place on nail - be careful with this brand as they roll up really quickly
3. Flatten on nail and pull excess over edge of nail and use a file to remove excess 
4. Top Coat

As usual, I saved a couple nails for accent nails! 

Here are the steps for the accent nails:
1. Nail Cleanser and Base Coat
2. 2 coats of blue polish
3. Top Coat

Here is my final results:

I love these wraps - they are so cute!
