Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to one more outstanding Canadian nail artist – Jessie (aka Jewsie Nails). I first found Jessie through Instagram back when I first started nail art in July. I was inspired by the variety of colors that she used and also by her extreme versatility in designs – creating something as simple and elegant as a sparkly glitter gradient, to much more complex designs with acrylic paints. Jessie’s looks are so inspiring too, if you’re ever having artist block then pop on over to her page for plenty of amazing variety and inspiration!
Over to you Jessie 🙂
My name is Jessie (aka Jewsie Nails). I’m 26 years old and am from Winnipeg, Canada. I’m quite new to the blogging world, but I have been a part of the Instagram nail art community for almost 2 years now.
Let me start off by saying how excited and flattered I am that Lindsay asked me to do this guest post for her today!
The content I was asked to talk to you all about is a manicure containing my favorite polish.
In total I have about 300-400 polishes. (Though it’s been a while since I’ve counted.). That may seem like a lot to some of you, but for others it might be just a small percentage of what you own. (Either way, you can imagine that I have many favorites.)
To me, there are always the “go to” polishes or “staple” polishes in every girl’s collection. These are mine…
The very well known *Flip Flop Fantasy* by China Glaze and *Snow Me White* by Sinful Colors. I have repurchased both polishes multiple times and genuinely find them to be a must have in every polish addict’s collection.
Flip Flop Fantasy is like a vacation in a bottle. Put it on your toes and you feel like you’re ready to go walking on the beach. Living in a city like Winnipeg, also dubbed Winterpeg, it’s nice to put it on your finger nails in winter time and pretend like it’s not -40 outside. I guess what I’m trying to say is, I keep going back to it because it puts me in a great mood wearing this neon happiness on my nails!
I felt it necessary to mention Snow Me White for a couple of reasons…
If you’re into nail art, you know that white polish is a necessity for making colors pop. Also it’s a great way to give yourself that ‘clean canvas’ look. Sinful colors is extremely inexpensive, (at $2 a bottle here in Canada), it has a fantastic formula and it dries nice and quick. What more could a girl ask for in a polish?!
Pairing these 2 together, made for one of my favorite manicures to date. It was a simple match made in heaven! I created a crisscross design and applied some Swarovski gems to bling it up a bit. (gems are from Michaels Craft Store). I then topped off the entire mani with Good To Go top coat by Essie.
That’s pretty much it! Super huge thanks again to Lindsay, for giving me the chance to talk to her audience. I’m always so thrilled to meet people with the same interests as me!
Thank you all very much for reading!!
Jessie, thank you so much for the extremely awesome post! You’ve completely inspired me to whip out my Flip Flop Fantasy this week (why was I saving it for summer?). This freezing cold weather is perfect for a vacation on my hands.
