Ulta - Sun-Sational, The Jungle Look, and Limelight

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 2 each of Sun-Sational and The Jungle Look. The Jungle Look could have been applied in one thick coat though.
TOPCOAT?: Yes, in most photos
SOURCE: I bought Limelight in an Ulta Store. The other two were purchased on the Ulta web site. I only buy these when they're on sale (buy one get one free - they are regularly $5)
COMMENTS: I wanted to do some nail  art from the Japanese Nail art magazine my coworker got me. Two patterns on a page caught my eye, so I tried them on nail wheels first. I like what I picked but am still getting used to my shorter nails.

** My photos are LARGER in this post - do you prefer this size (xl) or the smaller ones (l)?


I tried out the first and fourth designs below

  6. Such great designs--I'm so impressed!

    I like the L pics rather than XL; it's easier for me to appreciate the photos when there's a bit more background around them.

  7. Thanks for all your comments! Thank you also to those who commented on the photo sizes. Ideally I'd like them in between both sizes, lol!

  13. I also wish there was an inbetween size. You can manually change the size, of course, but who wants to do that?

  14. Hi! OMG that looks SO GOOD! It's so neat! And I like the way you used both green and yellow as the background colour.

    I also wanted to thank you very, very much for all your sweet comments on my blog :) It's really nice to hear that people enjoy the manis that you put so much time and effort in.

  18. This looks awesome! I was just eyeing the jungle look earlier online, but I don't have any ultas so I don't know how they apply and wear, so I'm glad it turns out nicely =]
