I always get excited because the start of a New Year means a new Pantone Colour of the Year - I'm so excited for the 2023 Colour of the Year because it is Viva Magenta! I love pinks and magentas and it's such a gorgeous colour family - I feel like I'm going to get a lot of inspiration from this colour! 

The #CBBxManiMonday group usually picks a theme for the month and we all do the same nails together for the month. For the start of the year, we decided to leave the theme open - it's a freebie month and we are all going to do our best nails this month to ignite our love of nail art! Chances are, I'm like doing Viva Magenta nails all month since I love the colour so much!

The products I used for this week's manicure are:
  • Essie Expressie in In The Time Zone polish
  • Bio Sculpture Gemini polish in Violet Vibes
  • HoloTaco polish in Magenta Jelly
  • HoloTaco polish in Hot Wire Pink
  • Revlon Ultra HD Snap! in Berry Blissed
  • Sally Hansen polish in Fuchsia Power
I also used a nail art brush with a long skinny tip for my nails this week!

For this manicure, I started with a base coat and two coats of a light pink polish as the base (you could also do this over nude nails, but I love the contrast with the light and dark pinks!) Then, with the slim nail art brush, I took turns with my variety of pinks and just painted on abstract lines on the tips - I did a few of each shade on each nail with varying lengths! I finished with a nail art top coat. 

I love how these nails turned out - I love how the lines look on the tips of the nails! Make sure to check out Cosmetic Proof and Prairie Beauty Love for their nails too!
