Black & White Challe...

Day3 4

I can’t get enough of this look…I felt there were flashing neon lights lining my nails!  I had just filed and shaped my nails, and the “frames” helped show off my new shorter square nails!

Peacock-Inspired Marble

Peacockmarble1wm

For this marble, I used my new blog design as inspiration. First, I picked out three colours that match the peacock feathers (China Glaze Grape Pop, Zoya Robyn and China Glaze Custom Kicks) and then I did my marble. But when I was done, I thought it was missing something. So, I added some white dots to tie in the white from my blog as well, and I think that really completed the look.

Blue Skies Smiling At Me

I used a silver LA Colors polish and the Blue Years Eve to make double dots.    This pics don’t show it very well but the LA Colors and Blue Years Eve are both really glittery and gorgeous.  They go really well together.  What do you think?

Sprinkled Agro Nails

China Glaze Hunger Games

The setup: pretty simple — two coats of China Glaze Agro (I will never get tired of these shimmery olive tones, I don’t care how many variations on the theme I have in the collection) with some gold acrylic dotted over the top in layers and a couple of different sizes for a bit of a cascade feel.

Color Club Wild At heart Fashion Addict  3

I made dots with Fashion Addict (unfortunately I don’t have a holographic version of this beauty ) and a dotting tool. Easy and quick.

Girly and Gilded

 Girly mix and match nail art 1

A few weeks ago, my sister Kelsey stopped by to get her nails done. You may remember her (and her nails!) from the last time we did a nail photoshoot featuring leopard print and a faux fur lined jacket. We were talking about manicure ideas and decided to do a girly mix and match featuring pinks, golds, and black. I did some sketching while we hammered out the details, and once the manicure was done, we did a mini photo shoot!

Challenge Bugs 1

I painted my base with 17 Peacock and added a dragonfly with acrylic paints. To make it a bit prettier I put some rhine-stones on the body and painted the wings with opalescent glitter.

Grab a toothpick

Radiosuperstar3

This is a really nice polish with blue micro glitter and big fuchsia with sporadic holo stars.  As cute as polishes are with the big glitter like the stars are, they are also a huge pain in the butt.  I had to put the stars in place with a toothpick because it just wasn’t happening when I brushed it on.   Oh well, you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes :).

I started with two coats of Essence Twins Romeo. I did a diagonal tip with China Glaze Liquid Leather using clear scotch tape. Using my dotting tool, I placed three dots of Essence Twin Romeo, making sure the grey dots fell on the edge of the black diagonal tip. Once that dried, I added three dots with China Glaze Liquid Leather. I finished with one coat of top coat!

Poisonous Dots Nail Art

Poisonous Dots 3

I dotted on various size dots in Barry M Acid Yellow and China Glaze Pink Voltage, but didn’t seal with a top coat, so the dotty texture would remain. I love it! Most fun nails I’ve worn in ages!
