N.A.I.L Dec 2014- Festive Jumpers

Hello All,


Happy Holidays ! I still have not put up my tree yet, which is sad as  I usually have it up right after Thanksgiving. I will use this as a excuse to just keep it up longer ;).  Today’s prompt was Festive Jumpers, I never had a holiday sweater so I looked for some inspiration online. There were some really pretty hand draw images out there that I was not even tempted to try less I mess up so I went to these water decal stickers that I had sitting in my drawer. Please excuse my dry hands….ugh. My pink reindeer got messed up once I put the top coat on I think this was due to I did not wait for the decal to dry and there was still water on my nail.

OMD July 30 Day Nail Art Challenge – Day 27 Nautical

I love the water! Even though my zodiac sign says my element is Air I feel like I have to be in the water whenever chance permits. I did get the idea for this from someone else’s art, where they used a pale pink to show the sand I used a vibrant gold.

OMD July 31 Day Nail art challenge Day 6 DuoChrome

Not sure if this is a true duochrome, but this is the only polish that I have that comes close, in certain light it looks green or blue. I tried a butterfly nail art this time as I have seen so many and thought they all were so pretty.

Sinful Colors- Mirror Mirror swatch+ Gold Flakie mani


Still on my new swatching kick where I am going to wear the colors instead of painting them on fake nails.

Next up is mirror mirror by Sinful Colors is is a deep oxblood red that is gorgeous. I from the pictures I can tell it is going to stain my nails and hope the base coat I put down helps. I decided to stamp over it with gold polish thinking it would be more eye catching. I pulled my Shany plate and decided to go with these cool triangles that I saw. Lo and behold when I stamped it make it look like gold flecks and fell in love!

It was hard to capture the dark red of the polish so this is the best one I was able to get

The funny thing is there is a song I heard on Dancing With the Stars called Mirror Mirror and I have been obsessed with, but can not find it to download it. I think they made it up for the show, but I am determined to find it. Click link to hear song. Try to ignore the awesome dancing of the professionals and here the song    http://dai.ly/x173oy5

DWTS inspired nails-Troupe dancers week 3

Did I mention that I love this show? This week theme was to Dance to their most memorable moment. No line I cried watching Amy and Derek’s Dance to her dedicating it to her dad. She lost both her legs as a result of Meningitis and has been just amazing on the show with her prosthetic legs.

My inspiration for this Mani was from the troupe dancers who dance during intermission. Their dresses were red with crystals, but the bottom border had a black and white trim. ABC has not released pictures yet, but I will put it up once they do.
