SPOOKY GHOST NAILS 👻
This is my first attempt at nail art. I do not have a steady hand so that doesn’t help but I still like the way they came out. I created a tutorial on how to recreate the look.

Which Drugstore Gel Polish Reigns Supreme?
Do you all remember when drugstore gel polishes were all the rage a few years ago?! Everyone, including myself, coveted the extra shiny, long-lasting appeal of gel manicures but wanted quicker, more affordable alternatives. I must stress this - I’ve never had a professional gel mani. My comparisons are purely going to be based on longevity, color payoff, & shine. In this post I’m going to discuss 3 popular gel polishes at the drugstore: Sally Hansen - Miracle Gel , essie - Gel Couture Top Coat , and wet n wild - 1 Step WonderGel Nail Color . All of these formulas claim to be long-wearing, high-shine, & don’t need a UV lamp to cure like traditional gel polishes. Sally Hansen: I’m wearing the shade “tidal wave” on my thumbs & pinkies (only left hand photographed). This formula is opaque in 2 coats, has a shiny finish, and easy to apply. I topped it with its matching top coat Sally Hansen - Miracle Gel Top Coat for extra shine. I purchased this shade & top coat as a set for approx $16 a few years ago, and have not had issues with the formulas changing over time. I have 1 other shade (discontinued). They retail for $7-10 each depending where you purchase. Honestly, this formula is not worth the hype or price. This shade lasts longer on me than the other one, but no where near the brand’s claims of being long-wearing. I find that my polish chips within 2-3 days and it’s downhill from there. Easily removable with any polish remover. Essie: I’m wearing “once upon a time” on my index & ring fingers. I received this & essie - Gel Couture Top Coat in an Influenster box a few years ago. The formula has not changed over time. This shade is opaque in 2 coats, shiny, and easy to apply. Sets with a polish & top coat are $18-20 and single polishes around $10-11 depending where you purchase. The formula is true to its claims of even coverage, shine, & fade-resistant. I find this to last about the same time as the WnW polishes (keep reading!). Again, for that reason, not worth the hype or price. Easily removable with any polish remover. Wet n Wild: These are the cheapest at around $5 ea. The 2 downsides are the shade range is significantly smaller (WNW ~ 10, sally hansen ~ 100, Essie ~ 45) & availability. It appears WNW has discontinued most of this line, but you can still find them at Walgreens.com and on the WNW website. This particular shade on my middle finger, “stay classy”, is one of my all-time fave polishes I’ve worn a lot over the last few years. I also have teal shade & the formula is consistent. It’s easy to apply, opaque in 2 coats, and shiny on its own (the 1-step claim) or with Seche - Vite Dry Fast Clear Top Coat This lasts around 3 days without chipping. Easily removable. Because it lasts about the same time as its more expensive counterparts, I recommend these instead. #CheriePartner
How to grow strong nails 💪🏾
📅 november 2020. after seeing @annkrisha's post on cherie, i decided to follow her steps. you can see my progress in a month. 👝 so I bought the gummies and a nail treatment. 🍓 the gummies NATURE'S BOUNTY - Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies i took the strawberry cream flavour, because it's made with biotin. 🍊 there's an orange flavor but it's made with collagen. 👩🏾🔬 but what is biotin? it's a water- soluble B vitamin that helps your body convert food into energy. in German, it is called H vitamin. the H stands for "Haar und Haut" which means "hair and skin". 💉 you take 2 gummies per day, a few hours before or after another medication to avoid interactions. they help to support: ￼nail health ￼maintain health of normal hair and skin ￼maintain good health (wound healing, metabolism...). 🤔 in the past, I tried the Centrum - Multi+ Beauty Gummies Natural Cherry, Berry & Orange but I didn't like the taste. I did see some improvement in the nail area though. 💗 the nail treatment: Sally Hansen - Nail Rehab it is an intensive strengthening treatment. "the jasmin, rose and vitamin E formula helps strengthen and protect your nails, instantly fill in ridges and hide imperfections". 🔎 you apply 1 or 2 coats, as needed. after a week, remove and re-apply. you can also use it as a base coat. 🤗 my nails are growing strong! i recommend this. thx for reading! #CheriePartner

Fun Summer Gel Polish Art 🌞
I did this summer tie-dye inspired gel nail art and I'm so happy with how it turned out! First off it is sooo easy! All you need are a few colors - I went with mostly light pastels and a pop of bright yellow. Prep your nails for gel polish, I use a base coat and a builder gel to do this. Then I go right in with colors. Dot the colors all around the nail, it's okay if they touch! Then using a small brush, lightly blend the edges together, cure for 60 seconds in a UV light. Then using a milky shade, I used OPI - OPI Gel Nail Polish in Funny Bunny, go over the entire nail. I did two coats of Funny Bunny! This is what will blend it even more and give it that melted tie-dye look. Top with your favorite top coat and your done! It's super quick and easy - plus requires very little effort or skill! If I were to redo this set, I'd only use cream and sheer colors. The #Gelish - Switch on Color Collection[products]#[FiveStars] colors all have gold shimmer throughout which doesn't look great underneath the milky white that I used.

Salon ready gel manicure @ home!! 💅🏼
If you go to the nail salons twice a month like me to get your nails pampered and polished, you’ll understand the struggle of keeping your nails looking good in quarantine. At first, I went with regular nail polish (I.e. Essie and OPI) and got frustrated that it wasn’t lasting too long or looking too great. I picked up DASHING DIVA - In the Blush from Target because it claims it wear just like salon gel. The design was cute so I wanted to try it out. It comes with several different designs and a lot of sizes. It’s pretty easy to apply. All you have to do is : Prep your nails by cleaning them with an alcohol pad find the appropriate design/size for your nails and place it so it fits and PUSH down & apply pressure Fold it down and file away using the white side of the nail file so the excess material comes off File down the edges and smooth with the pink side of the nail file Voila! Your salon gel mani is finished. It’s quite fun to mix and match the design. A tip: the more narrow side of the sticker is for the TOP of the nail and the wider side of the nail sticker goes where the nail bed is. Don’t make the mistake I did and place it upside down 😂 The downside of this is the stickers may not fit your nail size exactly (which is understandable) and sometimes it might lift off or be slightly bump if applied wrong. It’s not a replacement for a salon gel mani by any means but it’s good enough for me at the moment!
DASHING DIVA-In the Blush
Pop On & Go
My Absolute Favorite Manicure! When I first tried these at the recommendation of one of my close friends, I loved how they looked but rolled my eyes at “reusable”. The press on nails I had tried from the drugstore were super flimsy and DEFINITELY were not reusable, but these bad boys actually are! They look great, they’re super easy to apply, don’t require any trimming or shaping like cheaper nails, and I can usually get 3-4 wears out of each pair for less than an acrylic set at the salon. They’ll start popping off after about a week and I just file off the old glue and glue it right back on like nothing ever happened. If you’re less rough on your hands than me you could probably do more than 4 wears, but after that I start to get gouges/dents, but I’m really not careful with my nails. It also comes with the glue and and an emery board, so you’re ready to go! #CherieCreator
STATIC NAILS-Toasted Sugar Pop-on Reusable Manicure Set
🍧This polish is #Sally Hansen - Sorbet[products]#[TwoStars] from the Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect line. It retails for about $6 and can be found at any drug-store. I was super excited to try out this line so bought both Sorbet and Air. The packaging is super minimalistic, cute, and sturdy so it drew my attention right away. I was so disappointed when I tried them though. The application process is super smooth since the brush is a large flat brush, making application easy with one swipe. However, this is the most opaque and non-buildable nail polish I have ever seen. 🍧The color is has a pearly peach hue but completely does not match my skin tone so after two coats I stopped. I feel like there is potential in this formula though since it claims to hide ridges and imperfections of the nail and is enhanced with all sorts of good ingredients (ginseng, camelia oil, louts). However, the color and sheerness of the polish are just not for me. 🍧If you want to try this one out, I recommend applying multiple thick layers. I might give it a go again next time but for now, it's not my shade. Will review Air next, might try to make it work more than this one because I really really like the color. read my next review to find out how it turned out! #cheriepartner
