NOTW: Strictly Cookies & Cream

This week I wanted to try something clean and simple. I love Ciaté’s Cookies & Cream nail polish as it’s a great neutral shade. I decided to pair it with a stripe of Ciaté’s Strictly legal as I thought the dark purple with subtle golden glitter would be a good contract with the creamy beige…

NOTW: Sweet like candy

Another new nail look. This really reminded me of bubblegum, cotton candy and Dutch marsh mellows (spekkies), hence the name. It’s very simply, but I liked the pink a lot on its own, so I didn’t want to ruin it by adding too many distracting factors. I hope you like it. – base coat: Etos…
