Neon Stars and Stripes

So I bought this gorgeous Sinful Colors Neon Yellow with Green undertones called celtic sun. I knew I wanted to do some actual nail art with it instead of just painting my nails. I found the perfect on searching on Google it was on Lusty Fashion under the article Top 10 Neon nail art Designs. It did not say who did the art so sorry I can not give out Kudos.

Here is the original image

Of course this is brighter in person and I used striping tape to make the lines. I also used my new black polish as all my other ones were shot.

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)

Nothing fancy again today, decided to play with the striping tape I bought, but barely use. The design for this came from the add on amazon for striping tape. I wanted to do tiger stripes, but thought it would be too close to the animal print theme that is tomorrow. My mom liked this nail design for some reason.

As for the swatch I picked up Kaleidoscope for.69 at Walgreen’s I was shocked! It had a whole display of colors for cheap and I had to decide on just one. I picked this gorgeous sheer polish with tiny holographic silver glitter. Hard to capture the shininess with the camera.


Here is a pic of Kaleidoscope on its own:

April 30 day nail art challenge Day 27 Inspired by a Tutorial

There is so much great art out there that I did not know which one to chooses from. What I ended up doing was picking a number and then going on YouTube and going down the list till I got to the number I picked. The tutorial I ended up on was a reciprocal gradient mani done by SimpleLittlePleasues . I have never heard of this and when I saw her cover image I was hooked to try it. Mine does not look as sharp as hers, but practice makes perfect, you can check out the tutorial here.
