074This is actually my favorite color and I love the way it looks with the gold. This look is actually very easy to achieve and you can use any two colors you would like. Simply paint all your nails. To do the accent nail, it is easiest to use thin paper strips. After it dries, take two thin paper strips and lay them across your finger nail. Take your second color and paint right over the entire nail. After that dries, remove the paper. And viola! Gorgeous.


So not too long ago I posted my fashion farewell. But I have decided to continue doing my blog anyway because I actually enjoy it and its amazing that I’ve connected with other people from around the country who share the same passion. Now I”m excited! I can actually put more of MY pictures on here. Woohoo(:

Check out my youtube channel!


To all my followers here on my blog, I thought I should inform you that I there will not be any more posts from Pretty Passions. For those who didn’t know, I took  this blogging class in school and it is the end of the semester. I really enjoyed sharing my fashion and beauty tips and ideas with everyone and I also enjoyed reading yours. But don’t be sad! I also have a you-tube channel that I just started on beauty and fashion. So instead of blogging, I’ll be vlogging! Makeup and clothes and such will always be a big passion of mine and I don’t plan on letting it go anytime soon. I just have to let go of my blog. Maybe I will continue doing more posts in the future as I strive for college in the cosmetology field. Or even before then to tell you all about my journey  Thank you so much for understanding and even reading my blog! It really means a lot to me. Take care!

With much love,

Tis the season! To get this week’s nails, all your going to need for colors are red and white. Santa hats! So the first step is to make the triangular shape of the red hat. Starting at the bottom corners of your nails and coming to a point in the middle ot a little bit past the middle. After that dries, take your white and make a little white dot of the pom pom on the top of the triangle and then little white puffs at the bottom for the fuzz. And done! Here is the finished look:


Okay so this weeks easy manicure is simply adorable! Who doesn’t love a cute little panda? The only colors you will need are black and white. Detail brushes for nails or detail pens would make this look a lot easier to achieve but if you do not have these, you can substitute them with a toothpick. So first you are going to take you white nail polish and about half way on you nail, make a curved line with the arc pointed towards your cutical. Paint the bottom half of the arch white. After that dries, take your black nail polish and make two little circles on the top of the arc about 1/4 in and 3/4 in. These are the ears. Next make two bigger black circles for the eyes a little bit closer together than the ears. Then do one more teeny tiny black dot below the eyes, in the middle. That is the nose. After your black dries, take a little bit more of the white and put a dot on each eye towards the bottom going in the direction of the nose. And your done!

For the first week of November, I chose a manicure that is simple but cute. The colors needed for this exact look are black, pink, and possibly a french pink. (a color that is the same shade as your natural nail) First, paint your whole nail the french pink. (optional) After that dries, take your black and make a thin line starting from the middle edge of your nail and bring it down diagonal to the tip corner. After that dries, paint the under half of the black line pink. Then, apply the last two lines and the dots. Viola!

The Finished Product:

The nails of the week are cute and sassy. Colors you will need for this exact look are pink, white, and black. Of course, you can use any colors you want to customize your look. For the look below, pain your entire nail pink. After that dries, if you do not have a white detail brush, you can use a  toothpick. Across your nail, except for the tip, put little white polka dots. Already cute right? after that dries, you can add-on your black tips. Put on a clear coat for protection and shine, and your ready to rock.
