Hi there everyone!! My name is Dani and I run the blog From Polish, with Love! I was so flattered when Babi asked me to do a guest post for her while she is away for her sister's wedding! I've known Babi through blogging for a while now and she is the sweetest person with the most gorgeous nails!! We also share a love for food too ;-)

A little bit about myself before I show you my creation!! I'm a SAHM to two little boys, aged 3 1/2 and 1 and I've been blogging for 2 1/2 years now!! I LOVE NAIL POLISH but that shouldn't be news to you ;-) I swatch and do nail art with an occasional makeup look thrown in since I have just as much makeup as nail polish.

For today's nail art I decided to do something using all of the Keys Collection from Barielle for summertime. All of the shades in this collection are so complimentary with one another and I kept thinking how I could incorporate them all into a look.

I came up with this :-)


I wanted something reminiscent of a sunset but in abstract form so I just went with it! I had it pictured in my mind how I wanted it to look and I'm pretty proud of the result!!

I started off with 3 coats of Panama Pina Colada, a pale banana yellow. Starting off near my cuticles, I took Topless in St. Tropez ( wooo! ) and made a curved line across my nail but not going all the way down to my tips. The concept of this was to not have any rhyme or reason but to just go with it! I didn't want uniformity, just some wavy lines continuing down my nails!! I followed by doing random overlapping lines with Barefoot in Bermuda, Hawaiian Sunset, Paradise in the Tropics, and finished off with Miami Heat in that order. I needed 2 coats of Miami Heat since it's a jelly and wanted my lines to be more opaque. After letting this dry for a few mintes, I applied Sally Hansen InstaDri top coat. You definitely want to wait a bit before applying top coat so you don't smear your design.


I love when a collection comes out and every polish looks so good together! I really don't think this would have jived as well if a teal or blue was thrown in there. I love the ombre effect that this conveys!!


If you enjoyed this post and want to see more, please be sure to follow my blog here! I'm also on Instagram and on Facebook too and would love for you all to follow me on there as well!!!

The Keys collection and other polishes can be found on Barielle's website here. They don't have it listed as a complete collection but you can purchase the individual polishes for $8 per 13.3 mL bottle.

Thanks again to Babi for having me!! I hope you are having a blast with your family, darling!!!!!
