Guest Post from Polish Frolic

Good morning everyone! Today's guest post is from a lovely girl named Anna. She runs an Instagram account called Polish Frolic. I originally followed Anna on her first Instagram (omgnannerz... love that name) and then she created a mostly nail account.... So of course I had to follow it too. I love her nails and we even did some Bestie Twin Nails a couple of weeks ago. If you didn't get a chance to see that post, you should go check it out here. :) 

So lets see what Anna has in store for us today! 


Hello to Casey's lovely fans! Welcome to my blog debut (cue the music). Seriously though, When Casey asked me to do a guest post for her blog I was so thrilled. I love Casey's work on Instagram, and hers is the only nail blog I've ever read so this is all very exciting for me. I decided to go with some nail art for the post, so I will give you a little window into me and my nail art . I have been into doing nail art since I found out it was even a thing. Fortunately, that was also before I knew Instagram was a thing, so my earliest and most cringe-worthy manis can stay buried on my hard drive. When I did get on Instagram I realized there was this big, wonderful nail art community and I made friends. I also learned, a LOT! I learned how to take care of my hands, tons of amazing techniques, and I have been having a blast. I have been a polishing fool for about 2 years now and I'm still learning. In fact, the mani I've created for this post was the first time I've painted roses. I wanted to put together something that was a nice summer-to-fall transition. What I landed on was a tape mani with accent nails on either side. Enjoy!

Colors Used:
The base for the colorblocking is Color Club- French Tip. Colors used are: China Glaze- Heart of Africa, OPI- My Vampire is Buff, Sally Hansen- Soy Latte, and Wet n Wild Megalast- Wet Cement (one of my all time favorite polishes, by the way). 

The base for the roses is OPI- My Vampire is Buff. My roses are three different reds: Wet n Wild Megalast- Undercover (lightest), China Glaze- Heart of Africa (darkest), and Milani- Ruby Jewels (glitter). The leaves on the roses are Essie- Sew Psyched. 

That super glittery pinky nail is Milani- Gold Glitz.


Anna I love this!!!! You know how I have a weakness for roses. :) 

You should all go check out Anna's Instagram, now. Hurry, go follow her right now. I insist! :) 

Thank you so much for your help Anna!
