Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Pointillism

Almost done ! Nothing special with this mani I did a proper dot mani on my left hand surrounding love spelled out  on my right I used my new Funky Finger polish I got from 5 Below . It is called heart attack. The polish consist of of muli sized white hex glitter, red and pink square foil glitter, and pink and red heart glitter. I love the polish, but it is hard to get the hears out.

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: Watercolor( watermarble/waterspotting)

I really wanted to get back into water marbling for this theme, but i did not have any disposable cups or throw away dishes to store the water in so I tried the dry water marbling approach. I just used a nude base coat and clear and grey polish. I finished it off with a half dot border.

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Oils (textures/brush strokes)

I don’t own any oil paints so I just went off of the texture part of the title. I had a image in my head that I wanted my nails to look like the middle of a road so I already had in my head what I wanted to do when I got home ( I look for ideas when I am at work then go home and attempt them)

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Surrealism

Whew still playing catch up. Now we we are onto the real art challenges. I had to look up surrealism as I am not a art connoisseur. I saw some cool images, but what really stood out to me were the eye painting. I saw this really cool one while looking for inspiration.

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!)

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Pop Culture

Soooo behind. For pop culture I did the play boy bunny sign, I remember in high school it was on everything. Book bags, bathing suits, tongue and bell rings too.
