Just Like Candy Mani

Let me start by saying that this nail design was inspired by a post I saw recently here on Channing in the City. It was posted by a guest blogger, Sereeda from http://www.eclechick.com, and I loved the design so much I decided to try it!

With all the doom and gloom going on outside today, I thought I would brighten my day with this pretty DIY nail design. Sereeda’s instructions were super easy to follow (be sure to click on the link above) so I won’t go over the steps again, but I will tell you what nail colors and brands I used below:

Used Zoya’s Ericka as the based color. Color Club’s Blu-Ming, Nails Inc’s Baker Street, and Zoya’s Lara were used to make the dots. I also used a dotting tool which is not pictured here.

I love this mani and fully intend on doing variations of this look in the future. I’m so glad I decided not to go to the nail salon today because I think I did a pretty good job on my cuticles! Lol…But what do you guys think of this mani?? Would you try it? Talk to you all soon! XOXO

Baker Street – Nails Inc.

This is my second Nails Inc. nail polish purchase and I am very pleased with it. Not only is the formula incredibly easy to work with it, but the color is fully opaque with just one coat. You all may remember a few months back when Beyonce was sporting this amazing, vibrant blue mani, which I’ve pictured below…Well, I had immediately put this color on my wish list and was finally able to snag it yesterday at the Sephora in Chicago. Sidenote: There will be more on the other fabulous things I found in the Chi, but as for now, back to Baker Street:

I had seen some swatches and wasn’t sure if Baker Street was going to be bright enough for me. Well, it is! It looks just as amazing, if not better, in person. The pictures below really don’t capture the color in all its glory but these swatches will due:

What do you think about Baker Street? Will you be running to your local Sephora to pick it up?? Enjoy! XOXO

Try This: Magnetic Nail Polish

I went to Sephora last night and was finally able to purchase the Magnetic Nail Polish by Nails Inc. I purchased it in Whitehall, which is the greenish teal shade. It also comes in Trafalgar Square (metallic grey) and Houses of Parliament (purple). I haven’t decided if I want to purchase the rest of them yet, but after trying this shade I am definitely considering it…

It’s $16 for one bottle, but Sephora is selling all three colors for $30 so it just may be worth it to buy them all at once! The design is very pretty, and if done properly looks very professional. All you have to do is apply one coat of polish to all of your nails. Then you must apply a second coat of polish on each nail, and immediately place the magnet (which is built into the cap of the nail polish) over your freshly painted nail. It only takes seconds for the design to appear. You should notice though that my middle finger design isn’t as pronounced as the rest, so it is possible for the patterns to differ for each nail. You gotta be precise folks! I enjoyed doing it though…You should try it out as  I think it is worth the $16 they are charging for it…Check out a video below on how it’s done:
