The second mani in my heritage series is inspired by the Hungarian flag. I used Bésame Cosmetics in “Holiday Red,” Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in “Get Mod” and Holo Taco in “Wicked Potion” for the iconic stripes of the flag, and Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in “Game of Chromes” for the thumb and pinkie. And what better way to showcase this look than a bottle of Tony Packo’s Hungarian Paprika!
Today is the first of a series of three very special Mani Mondays featuring looks that represent the flags of my heritage. I’m beginning with the one closet to me, the red and white flag of Austria, the birthplace of my grandfather. I alternated Bésame Cosmetics “Holiday Red” with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Get Mod” to create the stripes, and of course I couldn’t leave out the edelweiss!
Today’s mani is bright and bold, with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Chill Out” plus an accent nail of “Quartz and Kisses” both topped with the glittery “Girls Flip.”
Last Monday my mani was inspired by my daughter’s college colors; in honor of Senior Night later this week, my inspiration came from the colors of my son’s high school (maroon and white). I used Holo Taco “Crimson Void” and Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Get Mod” to achieve the look.
Today’s Mani Monday is inspired by Bunny’s new college, which begins classes today. I did a single nail of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Stilettos & Studs,” and alternated Bésame Cosmetics “Holiday Red” with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Get Mod” on the rest.
This week’s mani, which is inspired by outer space, was quite a labor of love, and took forever to dry! I did a stripe of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Black to Black” down the center of each nail, and then did a stripe of Holo Taco “Twice in a Blue Moon” and “Queen’s Curse” on either side of it. I added a coat of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Girls Flip” over the whole thing for a little extra twinkle…I absolutely love how it turned out!
This week’s manicure is inspired by the blazing colors of summer, with Bésame Cosmetics “Holiday Red,” plus Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Eternally Grapefruit” and “Sunbrella” with a shimmering, golden Unicorn top coat.
I added a coat of the glittery Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Girls Flip” over my purple Nailtopia “Daisy Duck” Disney 100 nail polish for this sparkly mani inspired by my new Baublebar bag charm!
This week’s Mani Monday is inspired by the Combo Breaker fighting game tournament event we attended over the weekend (and is modeled with the medal I received in 2022). It features Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Black to Black” and Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in “Luck & Glory.”
I can’t think of a more classic pattern than black and white polka dots, and that’s what inspired this week’s “Mani Monday.” I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Black to Black” and Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in “Get Mod.”
