Marimekko flower nail art recreation

For my 2 year wedding anniversary date with my husband I wanted to wear something cute on my nails. I was on Youtube and came across Elleandish. She had this cute Marimekko inspired flower nail tutorial. I decided to give it a try and I was satisfied with it that I did my toe nails as well. I wore a cute orange blouse with gold sandals to go with my nails. I also had a Vera Bradley purse that kind of went with my theme. My husband took me out to eat at Bucca Di Beppo, went to the mall where he bought me a Vera Bradley headband and my favorite Macaroons, and took me to the movies. I got compliments on everything. So here is my recreation of Elleandish Marimekko nail art.

Elleandish Marimekko tutorial follow this link

This Le Macaron French pastries store that I love buying my Macaroons from.

My favorite Macaroons. Rose, Coconut, Belgian Chocolate, Vanilla, Gingerbread, And I forgot the last one. It was a new one.

 This is my favorite Macaroon. It is called Rose and it sort of tastes like rose petals. It has a sweet taste and is light. It is delicious. I love this one a lot. That's it for this post!

2 different nail art

I did two different nail art this month. Well actually it might be 3. With this one I started off by painting them gold and then adding some orange nail polish diagonally with tape. Here is the picture.


Then I added some black on the tips. This is where they came out kind of bulky because I fell asleep and they got lines on them so I added another clear coat to smooth the lines out.

I was really pleased with how they turned out. I did this nail art to match a blouse that has this exact same pattern. I was going out on a date with my husband. I got some nice compliments on them.

Ok so for this next nail art, I did them for my 2 year anniversary date with my husband on Monday. I did my toes too to match my hands. I got this idea from a nail art tutorial on youtube from Janelle (elleandish). It's really cute and fun. I got a lot of compliments on them when we were out on our anniversary date. My husband thought they were Vera Bradley inspired nails lol. I have a few Vera Bradley purses so I guess that is why he thought that. These are actually Marimekko inspired by Janelle (Elleandish) Here are pictures

I really loved these! For Janelle (Elleandish) tutorial click on the link below

That is it.

Model City Wear With Caution polish

Today I have Model City's Wear With Caution. I had taken these pictures a while back. Maybe like a month or 2 ago. I still wear this polish because I love the holographic effect. This was my very first holographic nail polish. I have seen many people on Instagram about how awesome holos are. I have seen many and none have caught my eye. I guess its because Instragram sometimes blurs peoples picture when the post them. So I saw a swatch by Nina (maker of Model City polish) on facebook (I follow her) and I fell in love with the color and the holo effect. I just had to have it. I stalked her page waiting for the day she would sell that polish. My classmates were laughing at me because I had set an alarm at the time she would put the polish in stock and was ready to run to the bathroom at purchase it on my phone. We had presentations that day and I was afraid I was going to get called up to present my presentation at the time she posted the polish for sale. Luckily we were given a break and I bought the polish. lol I was determined to buy it before it sold out. The day I received my package I was so excited! I put on the polish right away and I was very pleased with this polish. It is beautiful! I would get so distracted when the sun would hit my finger nails lol I went a little crazy taking pictures too lol Wear With Caution is a perfect name for this polish because you will get distracted so easily with it. It's so beautiful. It is a beautiful purple polish packed with holo goodness. Now its time for the pictures!

I just love this polish! I can't get enough of it! The polish is currently not on her shop. My guess is it is sold out but you can check out her other polishes as well. She might put up more for sale later. Her esty shop is linked below
