Sunshine Nails

Why hello there! Its been a while since I have been on here posting. But I promise I will won't take that long of an absence again.
While my posts may have stopped months back, I have not stopped painting my nails. My collection has expanded too! Any who, on to my current nails!

First I took off all my polish, filled and buffed my nails.
Then I put on a clear base coat. I am using Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear.

I've had this for years! I love it! But like always, any clear nail polish will do.

After my nails have dried, I painted 2-3 coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Buttercup.

I think that this is such a pretty yellow! Perfect for spring and summer.

Now it wouldn't be a complete without something special added to it. I thought of polka dots, but I was not happy with how they were looking. So instead, I picked my ring fingers to be different than the rest and made a simple design on them.
I have some nail strippers from Kiss. I used a white one and a silver one.

First I started with the white striper, and made 3 "swoops" on each sides of the nail from the outside going in and up.
Then I outlined it with the silver striper since I felt that it needed a bit more color.

Once they were dry, I put my clear coat of polish on top.

When my nails were 100% dry, I cleaned them up with polish remover and a q-tip.

And there you go!

Hoping that they bring sunshine to you on a rainy day ...
