Friday Nails ♥

Hi babes!

Happy Friday! ♥ What are you all up to today?

Me and the boys are once again hanging out at our place, and we hit the grocery store earlier today for much needed food and drinks for this evening. We're waiting for my dear friend K to join us after my work shift, and I think we're going to have an amazing weekend. I try to keep the camera along as much as I can, because it would be fun to share our fun times with you all. ;)

However, on this post, I will talk about different kind of fun things, because once again, I'll be sharing some of my nail art with you. So, without further ado, let's see some nails:

First up: My first proper attempt to create jelly sandwich nails. Now, those who don't know what that means, I'll explain. Jelly sandwich nails are made by layering a jelly polish and a glitter polish. For the best result, it's recommended to use glitter polish that includes different shapes and sizes of glitter. Okay, so now I bet there's someone asking what the heck is jelly polish. Jelly polish is the kind of nail polish that seems transparent on the nail - sometimes even after many layers of polish. If the polish covers well with only one layer, it's usually called cream/creme. More on different nail polish finishes can be found behind this link, and also, you can ask me anything about them in the comments, and I'll do my best to answer. :)

Anyway, I found this manicure pretty fun with all the black glitter pieces in, the half-and-half green coloring and the super cool neon finish. I know it might not be the most amazing nail art piece ever (because not much talent needed for this one) but the colors were pretty cool. :)

Oh, and sorry about the gazillion different edits here, I was trying to get the most out of the polishes, but clearly I need to work on my editing skills as well. :D

Okay, so enough of this manicure, let's move on to the next one.

Studs, mint, and leopard - inspired by an outfit I wore few weeks back that I still have to post for you. I adored this manicure so, so much, even though I say so myself. You probably already know my love for the elements here, especially if you have been reading my blog for a while now, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that I loved this so, so much.

And, as you might notice, there's a little bit of tan in my hands. I got tired being so white (it didn't look too healthy) so I invested in some tanning products and I think it was a great call. I don't think anyone should look like a carrot - which you do if you use too much tanning products - but sometimes a bit of sun-kissed glow makes you look more healthy. I'm the type of girl who can never get a tan from the sun, so I rather take this than fry myself and get burned. :D Okay, this is so off-topic. Moving on.

I totally think I should get more nail art studs, but I just can't decide where to get those... Does any of you have a great place in mind? Please leave tips in the comments, I'd be super grateful. Thanks!

But hey, that's all I have for you today.

Now, I ask you all to give me your opinions. What do you think about these manicures, yay or nay? ♥

I'm off now, to spend more time with the boys, but I'll be back on Sunday with a brand new That's Who I am post. You can follow our weekend through Instagram (@silvertigo) where I'll be updating probably pretty many photos during the weekend. ;)

Have a lovely weekend my lovelies! ♥

Blog ya later,

xoxo
