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.

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Abstract (splatter.popart.cubism)

Still behind, but I am going to finish this challenge even if it kills me ( geez its not even that serious.) For abstract I went a little funky and just did any thing that came to mind. I got 2 compliments off of it so I guess it served its purpose for the day.

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Sweets

5 hours , I repeat 5 hours. That was how long it took me to complete the mani for today’s challenge. I started at 5 and did not finish till 9. It did not help that I was watching The Three Musketeers while I was waiting for the paint to dry . I decided I wanted to do a swirl lollipop for my sweet.

The inspiration is this:

N.A.I.L.- Hallow E’en

OMG I think is the first N.A.I.L. post that I did it the week it was supposed to be done and not the week after! Again I know I should take more time to do these and would have a better turn out, but I was doing so much rushing around that I can’t sit still to dedicate nail time.

I got inspired by this background:

Here it is in normal lighting ( work) :

N.A.I.L. Hallowe e'enI did a gradient using white and 2 of my orange polishes. Then painted the ground, the tree ( if that’s what you want to call it), and the crosses with black acrylic paint.  I used nail polish for my stamps on my pinky and pointer finger.

For my thumb I tried to paint a house.

N.A.I.L. hallow e'enI decided to take a picture without any lights over my nail and it looks like it is glowing ( no black lights or special effects were used)

#31DC2013- Inspired by Fashion

I do not follow fashion at at all. I’m probably wearing things that were cool the season before and lord forbid I only have one purse, it does what it is supposed to hold my shit and when its ripped or dirty I buy a new one. I Googled fall fashion and saw this cool skirt so I was like I’ll try that.

The nails came out cooler than I thought it would, so mad my nails are still in nail hell and I could not wear this design.

#31DC2013-Galaxy

I’ve tried galaxy nails before and was not all that happy about it. This time I am a little more thrilled. I normally use, white,yellow, blue and purple, but this time I skipped the blue and added orange and red.  I think I like the blue look better,but this one was not bad.
