Hi everyone! How’s your weekend so far? Like I said yesterday, I’ve been busy swatching and creating nail art for mine. The Nested Triangles design was my first original creation, and you can see the original photo in my first blog post here! To this day, it is still one of my most recreated designs by other nail art lovers. I made a tutorial back in the summer and you can see it on my Instagram account here. Let me know if you would like me to create a pictorial more like my recent ones and I’d be more than happy to oblige! I hope that I can continue to create nail art that’ll inspire you. Please feel free to let me know if there’s anything specific you’d like to see me try in the comments section down below ♥
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed something different in my first photo, something that I’m trying for the first time on my nail journey: to show a bit more of myself. I’m still too shy for head shots, but I’ve managed to pose my nail art hand with my outfit, sort of like NOTD & OOTD shots. I hope you like them!
Let’s take a look at my swatches of the polishes used:
Freya’s Cats is a gorgeous, saturated, and vibrant medium blue filled with signature piCture pOlish holo particles. It was created in collaboration with Nihrida blog, who always has gorgeous and flawless nail swatches. Head on over to her blog to see her inspiration behind the shade and her beautiful photos. As always, Freya’s Cats has perfect formula, easily achieving full opacity in 2 coats.
I couldn’t resist including this macro shot so you can see all of its gorgeousness!
Electric Dream is a near neon coral pink, also filled with the same piCture pOlish holo particles as Freya’s Cats, and has an extra ingredient of golden shimmers that add to its depth and beauty. This shade was created in collaboration with Nail Polish Anon and you can see her inspiration and swatches here. Also 2 coats to full opacity and a dream to apply.
Fairy Floss was featured in yesterday’s post and nail art here. But, I’ve put the swatch here so you can see all the colors together.
Now, without further ado, here are the photos showing my NOTD with my OOTD:
In this photo, you can see the most of me. I love pairing bright complementary colors such as pinks and blues with a soft shade of grey. It creates the perfect muted background for the vibrant colors to pop before your eyes. This is one of my favorite sweaters, doesn’t look like much but provides endless warmth for the cold winter days.
See how much the colors and the design on my nails pop against my sweater?

So, did you like my Nested Triangles design? Have you seen it before? What do you think about my new poses for the nail art photos — should I take more like these or stick to only the hand shots?
Thank you so much for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
