Nail-Art-A-Go-Go:Warm vs Cool

Good Grief, it is another snow day, they are saying up to 12″. Me being the idiot I am came to work again as I did not want to use a personal day or vacation time if I did not show up( some people have already used all of their days up from not coming in from previous snow days already). On to the mani. I loved doing my fire flies gradient that I decided to do it again for this time using Fimo canes. My first time doing it was here and here .

I know I need a a refill so please ignore that part I will be buying acrylic once I get some dough.

OMD nail art challenge day 29 – Inspired by fashion + my new puppy sister

My inspiration for fashion today was color blocking. The definition of color blocking is  a technique where blocks of various fabrics are sewn together to create clothing with a few different solid colors. I started doing color blocking and was not aware I was doing anything fashionable I would wear a  coral long skirt with a hunter green tank top. Me fashionable who knew ( ha!)

Where I want to be

So I picked up this nail magazine from Sally’s called Nail It! It had some cool stuff in it and I am thinking about subscribing. I checked out their website and saw a beach mani that I had to do, as I had all the tools.

April 30 day nail art challenge Day 26 Gradient

I love gradient designs, there are just so many color combinations you can do. I decided to do a nail design I did once before, which was my firefly’s at night which you can see here. I had never heard of gradient at the time and I was really messy with the clean up of my nails. This one I will call Firefly’s at dusk.
