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.

N.A.I.L- Inspired by Pintrest

So far so good keeping up with the challenges for N.A.I.L. The next challenge was inspired by Pinterest, boy is that a hard one. There are so many great manis out  there that it was hard to choose just one.  There was the burnt newspaper mani, I tried it, but it did not turn out so well. I just didn’t have the right kind of brown to give it the burnt look that it deserved. Here is the image though:

burnt newspaperThe next one I saw was titled Arabian Nights and I knew I had to try and mimic its awesomeness.

arabian nightsI did not have the stamps to recreate the camels walking in the desert so I stuck to what I know and did palm trees instead.  Again wish the camera could catch the glitter from the polish.

South Carolina Here I Come

So one of my co-workers asked if I wanted to go to South Carolina with her, of course I did not hesitate and said yes. My second thought was what am I going to do on my nails. I ended up with a beautiful sunset design on my nails and multicolored toes with Rhinestones.

Pre-Spring nail art challenge Day 14- Re-create favorite mani

This was a fun challenge and I am kinda glad to get back to the days where I can leave my designs on longer than one day. I decided to recreate my Sun mani as it was one of my favorite ones to do. I just ended up changing the colors around.
