Tropical Gradient

Wow, I have been gone for a long time. So much has happen. I have moved twice, gotten back with the ex, been laid off from my job, and working somewhere new. I have not really painted my nails in a long time , but this new place feels like home and I am inspired again.

I saw this post somewhere else and loved the colors and tried to recreate it my way. Whomever did this I wish I could extend the credit. I had it in my to try folder for so long that I don’t remember what I searched to find it.

Heart Glitter Placement

I can’t believe Valentines Day is only 5 days away. The bar I frequent is also having another Prom theme on Saturday so I get to go  prom dress shopping too.  My original mani was going to be such a cool fancy affair, but I got lazy and messed up my nail so I did the simple and easy approach. I did a red and pink gradient with heart glitter placement with my new polish.

So I have been bringing my nail polish with me to pool lately planning to do my nails and one of my friends got inspired to do her own nails.

Rainbow Bright

I don’t know what happen, but I felt a strong urge to do some rainbows on my nails. I didn’t want to do the same thing over and over so I did different rainbow themes on each nails. My favorite nails are my thumb with the gems and my ring finger with the tape mani.

Cheetah Print over fiery gradient

Yay, 1st post of the new year and it is a beautiful one.  I say some cool nail art online with neon polish and was bummed when I could not find my Highlighter yellow, either someone stole it or I lost it. I worked with what I had and tried a different approach to a gradient then I normally do and it turned out great. My nails looked so cool that my roommate asked me to do hers in gold and black.

Pink Christmas

So I have not done as many Christmas manis as I expected, but I felt inspired to create something somewhat original than copy off of what someone else did. I have to work out a my gradient method as it did not work out as well as I planned. I tried the paint the colors directly on a sponge method, I’m just not happy with the color blend it was not as dramatic as I expected. I used some x-mas water decal stickers that I had left over from last year and clear and blue matching gems.

N.A.I.L- Snowflakes

Yesterday was our work Pollyanna and one of my good friends was my secret santa. She knows me so well that she got me nail polish as my gift. The colors were O.P.I which iswheres my czechbook a beautiful light blue polish  , purple with a purpose which is a  purple with a pearl finish, and polka.com which is a clear base glitter with blue, puple, and pink hex glitter. I told her I would go home that night and paint my nails.

I guess I did a skittle mani as none of my nails look that same.

N.A.I.L. Gradient+ Nail-Art-A-Go-Go snow day

Still trying to kill two birds with one stone. N.A.I.L.’s theme for last week was gradient and Nail-Art-A-Go-Go was snow. I knew I wanted to usepirouette my whistle for a snow mani some day and bought it specifically for that reason. The gradient came from I just wanted to be a snowy morning. It came together pretty well.

 

Also I finally bought a bottle of seche vite base coat and top coat and lets just say no more smeared manis for me ( why did I wait so long to get this!)
