Weekly Color Inspiration {Pools, Lakes, Parks…}

 
Green-Blue Essie Manicure by Miss Renaissance

{Lime green – Essie the more the merrier.  Teal – Essie Naughty nautical. Blue – Essie Bouncer, it’s me!}

Pools, Lakes, Picnics in Parks, the Beach…that’s what Summer’s made for! It looks like Essie got the hint, because all three of these fun colors are from the latest collections. I used them to create a loose ombre mix….and I like the result! It’s a perfect Summer mani, right?

Weekly Color Inspiration {Super Blingy}

 
Astrowifey's super bling manicure

This past weekend I attended a little party at one of my favorite Chicago Boutiques – Space 519….and as luck may have it, my babe Astrowifey was there giving super fun manicures using Jin Soon’s newest colors. I told her to go as creative as she wanted, and she majorly blinged me out with glitter, stripes and rose gold studs. Whatcha think?

The Jin Soon colors are beautiful and sophisticated, if you haven’t yet, you should check them out!

Weekly Color Inspiration {Subtle Pop}

 
Pink Hues manicure by Miss Renaissance

{On all fingers, except index fingers – Essie Lion Around.  On index fingers – Essie Secret Stash.}

What pairs perfectly with a nude-ish pink-ish tone?? Ding, ding…a super bright & happy pink of course!! I tried going with a more subtle color this week – hence Essie’s Lion Around, but then quickly got overwhelmed with the urge to throw in a bright color. Oops.

Weekly Color Inspiration {Summer Red & Sky Blue}

 
Bright Red & Teal by Miss Renaissance

{On all fingers, except index fingers – OPI Monsooner or Later.  On index fingers – OPI I can’t find my Czechbook.}

Somehow this week’s color combo feels both French-inspired & nautical to me. This must mean that I should immediately head to France & get on Sail Boat for vacation, right?!! K, brb.

But seriously, this bright red by OPI is amazing. It’s so fresh & classic – it’s the perfect Summer red! Do you have a favorite classic red for Summer?

Weekly Color Inspiration {Making the Blues Pop}

 
Purple & Pink Mani

{On all fingers, except index fingers – Essie No More Film.  On index fingers – OPI Koala Bear-Y.}

Shades of blue are always a go-to for me. Essie’s “No more Film” is a beautiful, rich navy with a slight purple glow – it’s the perfect backdrop for a super bright pop of neon pink! Together, these colors are fun for the weekend without being too in-your-face. Just what the doctor ordered.
