Another MrCandiipants Spring Floral Featuring Renaissance Cosmetics Tiny Petals Everywhere!

Hey everyone! Today I have a MrCandiipants floral design and a Renaissance Cosmetics polish to share!

Some way or another, almost every mani I do goes up on my Instagram way before it makes it here. This look is a rare exception because I didn't do it for a WNAC prompt and didn't just post it for fun!

Onto the nails!

To start, I applied two coats of Cirque Carpe Diem on most of my nails. On my other nails I applied just two easy coats of Renaissance Cosmetics Tiny Petals Everywhere! Funnily enough I needed three coats on my dominant hand but only two on my non-dominant hand (almost certainly because my non-dominant hand isn't so great at painting my dominant hand).

As I do lately, I decided to do some nail art to match the glitters in this indie polish! I did the famous spring floral design by MrCandiipants using American Apparel African Violet (purple), Girly Bits Cosmetics I've Got High Hoops (blue), American Apparel Rose Bowl (pink/coral) and American Apparel 7th and Alameda (grey).

Tiny Petals Everywhere had a great formula and was so easy to work with! I'm finding all Renaissance Cosmetics polishes to be absolutely amazing!

What do you guys think of this look or this adorable indie polish? I'm loving both! Also, I'm bringing back the pictures of my dominant hand because it's always fun to see how it turns out compared to the other one!

Raspberries Over a Sponged Yellow Base Featuring Girly Bits These Hips Don't Lie!

Hey everyone! Today I have some fun raspberry nails to share!

This post will be a bit of a quick one because I think I'll try and get a few more written while the motivation is flowing! I did this look a little over three weeks ago, so naturally my nails are crazy long now. I'm at the point that I feel they're too long but too lazy to cut and file them. That means I'll be doing a big chop pretty soon! :P

Onto the nails!

To start, I applied two coats of Cirque Carpe Diem (a white creme) and allowed it to dry. I then painted random blobs of Girly Bits These Hips Don't Lie (yellow) and American Apparel Neon Orange (yellow-orange) onto a damp sponge and got to sponging!

After a while, I decided what I wanted to do and went in with a dotting tool and Essie Plumbery. Next, I went in with the same dotting tool and Deborah Lippmann Jessa for the darker (inner) raspberry colour.

I then decided to try a Kiko polish I picked up in Germany last summer for the leaves and stem. I used a small detail brush and Kiko Meadow Green!

At first I thought the two different yellows of the base weren't showing up in pictures but I'm glad to see they kind of did!

What do you guys think of this look or yellow nails in general? I'm really loving yellow lately and I have another look featuring yellow that I'll be posting soon!

Thanks so much for having a look everyone! I'll be back with a third go at the MrCandiipants spring floral design (on myself; I've done it several times on others as well)! Happy Tuesday guys! =)

Pastel Water Marble Featuring Renaissance Cosmetics Spring Found Me!

Hello everybody! Today I have a pastel water marble look to share to match the glitters in Renaissance Cosmetics Spring Found Me!

I've been cleaning and redecorating my room lately, as well as getting rid of tons of clothes. I am quite the disorganized and untidy person (not dirty though) and I have a lot of trouble getting rid of things. I'm trying to change my ways because I really love being in my room when it's tidy and so does one of my cats; Dmitri (he doesn't like clutter). I am an avid thrift shopper and I have a ton of clothes, but there's also a ton I don't wear anymore or have never worn. I've gone through a small portion of my clothes and I already have almost three buckets worth to get rid of! :)

Onto the nails!


To start, I applied two coats of Color Club French Tip as a base for the water marble. I bought this polish because Cristine of Simply Nailogical thinks it's the best white creme, but I'm definitely liking Cirque Carpe Diem more! In two coats French Tip still wasn't opaque, though I didn't swap out the brush for a thicker one like Cristine suggested.


On my other nails, I went in with three coats of Renaissance Cosmetics Spring Found Me! It was super easy to work with and all of the pastel microglitters in it are so adorable!


Next, I coated my skin up to my first knuckle in Bliss Kiss Simply Peel for easier cleanup. I then did a water marble with the following four American Apparel polishes: Coney Island (pink), L'Esprit (purple), California Trooper (nude) and The Valley (blue)!


After a bit of dry time I added a coat of Essie Good To Go to all my nails and I was done!


I kind of think water marble nails as accent nails are about 1000X less cool than doing your whole hand, so I think water marble nails are an all or nothing kind of thing. Next time I'll do all my nails! What do you guys think of this look or this Renaissance Cosmetics polish? I'm loving the brand already!


Thanks so much for having a look everyone! I'll be back with another Renaissance Cosmetics polish pretty soon! Happy Friday! =)
