Good morning, Polished World!  And welcome to August!!!  Can you believe how this year has just flown by?  In a few short days, it will be my birthday and in another few weeks it will be my favorite season!  Don't get me wrong, I love that end of summer warmth, but there's just something about Fall that I absolutely am drawn to.  It is by far my favorite season and I wish it lasted longer.

Regardless of my love for fall, I'm still here sharing some summer-ish manicures!  Every year I create a black and yellow daisy manicure and every year they are my favorite designs.  I saw PippyPolish added some dimension to her daisies and I thought I'd give that a go by doing a little swipe of black on the petal.  To be completely honest, I think it made the manicure.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Sally Hansen - Blacky-O
  • OPI - Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet
  • White Acrylic
What is it with this color palette that just screams gorgeous?!  The black, white, and yellow is just so striking to me.  Especially using Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet, one of my all time favorite OPI polishes.  I took some pictures holding that bottle but it took away from the design so I opted to hold Blacky-O.  Both polishes apply wonderfully in two coats.   Once Black-O was dried, I went through with my white acrylic and added my little daisies.  Added the details, slapped on a topper, and called it a night.

I'd also like to take a moment to look at how long my nails are compared to what they were in the beginning of the year.  This has taken some time, and switching of many base coats, to get here.  I can't tell you how brittle my nails have been in the last year due to all the hand washing.  Now that I'm using ORLY Top 2 Bottom Base Coat, alongside FingerPaints Ridge Filler, my nails are truly sturdier than ever.  I also lotion them up before applying anything which I think has helped a bit too.  Maybe that's mind over matter.

Until next time, <3.
