PASTEL DAISY

Today’s manicure is this lovely daisy nail art using some of my favorite pastel colors from Sally Hansen miracle gel. I wanted to keep the nail art simple, didn’t want too many colors and i thought white would be perfect to make the nail art pop and bring it all together and I switched the colors when doing the daisies to give some contrast.

COLOR CLUB HALO-HUES SWATCHES

Hi!

It is a new week and I have got some of the Color Club Halo-Graphic polish swatches.

I have several brands of holographic polishes in my collection but for the longest time I have used the Color Club range of Halo-graphic polishes the most, these polishes aren’t exactly new releases and I have had them for quite a while but it is just as new to me when I use them because they are just so shimmery and beautiful!

The brand has several colors but these are the ones I got my hands on. I found that some of the colors of the polishes released are quite similar so I went for distinctive colors that could be easily told apart which makes more sense right…

My clients are obsessed and so am I! I decided to do proper swatches for you all to see. I hope you like them.

All the colors were done with 2 coats apart from the pink one I had to do 3 coats (that’s my fault but I won’t go into details, covers face) but you can’t tell the difference anyway and of course clear top coat.

This Purple Halo is called Eternal Beauty, what I love most about these polishes is that even when you have a dominant color you still get reflections of other colors like this has a hint of pink and light blue, I guess thats why its called Holographic. Totally love struck!

This has like a yummy bubble gum pink color to it but also the halo gives it this warm look of some burnt orange and purple effect when under the light. This one is called Miss Bliss.

Judging by the name ‘Blue Heaven’ it does look like heaven to me but also covered in Halo lol.

Lastly I have this very light shade of pink called Angelic pink.


Which one would you rock if you had to choose?
I will choose the blue holographic one.

Have a blessed week.

XOXO

SINGLE AND INTENTIONALLY WAITING

Congratulations on leaving the no status “status” gang lol! I hope you are as delighted as I am. Before we get into the second part if you haven’t read part one do so here https://sarahjamesnails.com/2017/10/12/there-is-no-relationship-status-called-in-between/

Let’s get right into it!

What does “INTENTIONALLY WAITING” mean?

This means choosing to be single deliberately, not because you don’t have ‘options’ but because you have decided to wait on God and not lean on your own understanding or personal judgement on your relationship. The Holy spirit gave me this title during my transition process and it fits perfectly because I decided to leave whoever I was with intentionally and hold on to God.

*inserts what my pastor says during Sunday sermon*

“Can we go deeper?” lol.

They say the truth is bitter but it has to be told regardless and just like you and I can agree that maybe God wasn’t entirely present in the “relationship” that we stayed in, and like the bible says in Revelations 3 vs 16 ‘So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth’ and also in Galatians 6 vs 7 ‘Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap’.

I have learnt in my walk with God over the years that you cannot eat your cake and have it if you are, He’s just watching you waiting for you to come back and many Christians over time have chosen which aspect of their lives they want to give God and the one they want to blindly control but it can’t be for a long while if we want true success and blessings in every of our endeavours.

 

WHAT DO I DO IN THIS NEW PHASE OF MY LIFE?

When you hear the word ‘WAIT’ the dictionary meaning is to remain indisposed or inactive. The difference between this waiting and “internationally waiting” is that you are most active in this phase, it is also called the “PREPARATION OR MOULDING PHASE”.

The Holy spirit told me that He will only give ‘THE BEST’ (Me) to ‘HIS BEST’ (My Partner) so therefore this phase is where you become God’s best in every area of your life by totally surrendering to His will for your life.

Your prayer point from this point is that God should use me for His glory on earth.

One of my spiritual mentors told me the secret to God orchestrating a meeting for you and your partner; it is a prayer point and it goes like this; “Lord put me on the mind of my partner wherever he/she might be, and put he/she on my mind also, then orchestrate a meeting when you please God, Amen. You know what this prayer does, it puts you at rest that God is working on your behalf because no matter how much you stay in the face of the person you like only God can put genuine love in their heart towards you.

In this phase you have to be careful and pray for discerning spirit because the bible says in 1 peter 5 vs 8 Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. When you pray this prayer and someone comes to your mind don’t immediately go to the person let the Holy spirit do the work for you while you stay in the place of prayer because the devil is aware and he can easily send one of his servants to distract you from your walk with God so be spiritually conscious.

You might ask how I’m so sure that I wont be waiting forever, I am very sure because the bible says in Gen 2 vs 18; And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” Furthermore, Numbers 23 vs 19  tells me that ‘God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good’?

This is the assurance I have, the faith that keeps me going and I hope and pray this post blesses you beyond measures.

In Jesus name, Amen

Please don’t forget to comment, I would love to hear from you.

 

 

 

FIRST POST/WHAT DOES YOUR NAIL SHAPE SAY ABOUT YOU?

Hello everyone,

I am super excited that this vision has finally come to reality!

As an Artist specialized in Nail Artistry I knew I needed a platform to document and showcase more than my social media platforms already do I just didnt know how to go about it but I thank God we are here now.

There is more to Nail Artistry that a lot of people don’t know that I would love to share with you. I will also be sharing some other areas of my life that I feel will interest you.

Please comment below if there is anything you want me to talk about concerning any of the topics I have in my menu or a nail tutorial you will like to see or learn.

Please do join me on this beautiful and exciting journey as we live and discover together!

Your nail shape says a few things about you, read on to find out!

Natural nails or extensions we all have a nail shape that works for us. I have worked with several clients and I have some that are willing to try a new shape with every set and I have some that come rain or sun they are sticking to the same nail shape.

You will agree with me that when you meet someone you immediately try to form an opinion by how they look… Another way to know a bit about a person is through their nail shape shocking right?! Your nail shape says a lot about you which are often times accurate. Here is a compilation of the different nail shapes and what they say about you, lets get right into it!

Square nails

You prefer comfort and chill to anything dramatic. You are a bit stubborn and you don’t like change very much and would rather opt for a movie and chill in bed to trying a new spot in town. You don’t mind doing things one way for a long period of time.

Squoval

You are a bit more laid back and easy going, easy to please. Easy to talk to and flow well with people. You have a  great sense of humour. Flexible thinking, quite indifferent about change.

Round

Classic, practical and easy. You like simplicity and seeks peace and harmony. You are very consistent. This shape also seems to be the go to shape.

Oval

Poised and sophisticated, you are orderly and your make up and outfit weirdly stays perfect all day long. Non-aggressive and you avoid confrontation. Just like your personality you are drawn to anything elegant and classy. This nail shape is super low maintenance.

Almond

You are quite adventurous but practical, you are the girl to go out with a change of shoes or outfit just in case… loves to try new and creative things but always cautious. Classy yet demure. Your taste and style is modern and quality.

Ballerina

You are confident and feminine, your style is edgy and chic but still practical. This shape can be worn by almost every woman but is quite difficult to maintain. You find some nails turning into almond some weeks into your manicure for some weird reasons.

Stiletto

Innovative, creative, free spirited and adventurous. You like the spotlight; you love to turn heads with your style. You are not afraid to be yourself. With stiletto nails typing and texting becomes almost impossible but the mere sight of your nails is satisfaction enough to keep going. They say women who wear stiletto nails do little or nothing with their hands do you agree?

Which nail shape(s) best describe you and what shape are you wearing now? For me my nail shape depends on my mood, sometimes i’m feeling squoval, sometimes stilettos but you would typically find me wearing almond most of the time.
