san francisco swirl

Hey guys, today I have for you another design that I did with my Jewel FX accent nail.

This one was my favorite of the three I did after I took of Senorita Bonita. (But that one was my absolute favorite. Until it chipped.)

I hadn't used this swirly image before but I really like how it looks! It's from Konad m63.

The base color for this manicure is Sinful Colors San Francisco.
My boyfriend bought me this for Christmas, and even picked it out himself! How sweet.
I'm a big fan of this color. 3 coats.
The stamping was, again, done with China Glaze 2030. (Which coincidentally my boyfriend also got me for Christmas.)
And of course, Milani Jewel FX in Gold for the accent nail!

I meant to say in my last post that to avoid this look:

I dabbed a bit of 2030 onto the tip of my nail to cover where the glitter missed. You can't even notice that it is there, it just covers the bit of naked nail I was left with.

I just got home from school a half hour ago, and waiting in my mail box were my Sally Hansen Color Quick Chrome pens!! I was so delighted. (I bought 6 on ebay for ~$15.)
I also received a wheel of bullion/steel beads from Born Pretty.
I'll review these things in the coming days, when I have time between my projects and homework!
Speaking of homework... I must go do some. Bleh!


  1. Ack, I missed the boat on the Milani polishes, I'm dying for this one and the gems one!

  2. Love it! I'm always a sucker for greens.

  3. Gotta love boyfriends that encourage/contribute to one's polish addiction :)

  4. LacquerSmack - i have gems too! that will appear in an upcoming post. definitely grab these if you ever find them!

    Leslie - me too, as you know.

    Johnna - for sure!!

  5. I absolutely love this look. Of course it helps that green is one of my favourite colours. You are right about the polish on the accent nail. It blends in perfectly. When I first saw it on the blue/gold houndstooth I thought you had redone the whole nail to get it to look perfect.

  6. I don't have any of the Jewel FX colors but, I like to use Milani Disco Lights as an accent nail. The glitter is such a pretty color. :)

    Cute mani!! :):)
