Sadly I am still in a bit of a nail funk and have not come up with any thing original in a while. I saw this mani in Nail It magazine and decided to recreate it. I did not get as smooth of lines at my cuticle like I wanted, but it still came out pretty.
Following the theme I went for a polish that had Lavender in the title. I saw this mani in Nail Pro magazine ad. I thought Hey ! I can try that!. I love the mani, just not a fan of the way my glitter turned out, maybe if I made tinnier diagonals with my striping tape. I am still having a issue minimizing the art I want to do.
Here is the ad image:
I actually am caught up and not behind, I just did not post yesterday as we had this huge snow storm and I was enjoying my lazy day off of work. For yesterdays challenge is key to my heart I got the idea off of Nails magazine’s web site.
Sorry for the bumpy look, my sponge came apart during my gradient, anyone have any ideas on how to stop that from happening? I tried the putting in water before putting the polish on and I still have the problem.

This next mani was inspired by the dress that Cheryl wore doing the Viennese waltz with Jack Osbournes. I’m really surprised at how well Jack is doing as I used to watch The Osbournes and he seems like such a ass. His personality in the show is nice and sweet and he even comes off kind of cute.
The base coat used is actually a really light purple, but comes off kind of grey in pictures.
This holo was so shiny I had to try and catch a close up of the shininess
Another not my idea, but borrowed from NailPro magazines website.

I have yet to do a galaxy mani, I was excited to try it out!
I wanted to add more details so I did a different zodiac sign for the people in my life. I tried as best I could with the space and lack of skill that I have to make it exactly how it is supposed to be.
