Manicure Monday (Pantone Colour of the Year Nails - Rose Quartz and Serenity) + Monthly Pedicure (Julep Textured Toes)

I thought it would only be fair to start off 2016 featuring nails using the new Pantone Colours of the Year - Rose Quartz and Serenity!

Here is a look at the products I used for this week's Manicure:

  • Formula X Nail Cleanser and Base Coat
  • LVX polish in "Lolli" (pink)
  • Quo by ORLY white nail art polish
  • Nanacoco polish in "Romanic Cruise"
  • Julep polymer Top Coat
Here are the steps I followed for this week's Mani:
1. Nail Cleanser and Base Coat
2. 2 Coats of base polish (I used pink)

3. Let dry, and using blue polish paint half the nail over top of the pink (this line does not need to be perfect because we will cover it up!)

4. Using the white nail art polish - create a line dividing the nail in half

5. Let nails dry, and apply Top Coat!

Again, here is a look at my final result:

Oooh - I think these 2 colours are pretty together! I'm expecting some beautiful things from the Colours of the Year!

Now, for my Monthly Pedicure, I thought I would do something a little more simple - using a cute textured look polish. Here is a look at the products I used:
  • Formula X Nail Cleanser and Base Coat
  • Julep Polymer Top Coat
  • Julep Nail Color in "Kimberly"
The steps are straightforward:
1. Nail cleanser and base coat
2. 2 coats of polish
3. Let dry and top coat! 

Here is a look at the polish on:

I love the colour purple and the texture look likes I put a little more effort in to them then I actually did!! 


  1. I love that nail art! It's a great way to wear both colours together, and it looks great!
