The One With the Mani Swap with @NailsbySammie_

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing on this lovely, lovely, LOVELY Friday?  Yes, it's a lovely Friday because tomorrow is Saturday meaning I finally get a day off after what seems to be the longest week ever!  My to-do list at work is growing and growing and I feel like I'm never going to get caught up.  I felt like this a few months ago and it turned around, so I'm expecting it to again.  We shall see.

Today, I am super excited to be bringing you a Mani Swap!  It's been forever since I've done a collaboration with another blogger.  After seeing so many people doing them, I took to my Instagram story and asked who would be interested and I had some lovelies respond.  One of them being @NailsBySammie_.  I've been a fan of Sam's page for so long!  Her nail art is so neat, her swatches are amazing, and I love all of her rings.  Seriously, I really want to get me some rings for my manicure photos.

After looking through her page, I stumbled across a beautiful rose manicure with a dotted accent.  You know me and how I love roses and dots, so of course this would be the design I would create!

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • OPI - Spare Me A French Quarter?
  • OPI - Alpine Snow

I forgot that I even owned "Spare Me A French Quarter?" by OPI.  I really am questioning if I've ever used it before because when I opened it up the inside was perfectly clean like a brand new bottle.  It's such a gorgeous shade that I would have completely forgotten about if it weren't for this mani swap!  Two coats and full coverage.  Honestly, you could get away with one coat of this beauty.

I love the design so much.  I rarely accent my manicures like this.  Usually I do the ring and index finger.  This is such a fun set up for a manicure that I will most certainly be using more often!

Sam re-created my gradient heart design I did last month!  Make sure to head over to her Instagram to take a look at her post!  I absolutely love her swap!  I think her manicures are so much better than mine!

What do you think?  Like the mani swap?  Which is your favorite??

Thank you so much Sam for doing this collaboration with me!!!  I hope to do it again soon!

Until next time, <3.
