Neon Studs over Tangerine

My post have been slow in coming and that mostly is due to me being hard on myself, I made a new years resolution not to post anything that I am not proud of. This is not to say I am ashamed of my work, but I want to push my self to do better and take pride in what I do.

I know this is more like a summer mani instead of spring ( not that you could tell they are expecting snow on Tuesday ), but I wanted something upbeat on my nails. It nothing fancy just short and sweet ,a bright orange polish with square neon studs on top.

I had to take pictures of my non dominant hand due to I used my base coat as a top coat by accident  and I had some major smudging.

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: Round and Square

I kind of like this odd design I did. I used striping tape to help me get the squares together. Not feeling very wordy today so have nothing else to add.

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.

Gritty Rainbow

I was trying again to try and do a equalizer on my nails and again I failed. This time I spaced my colors out to far on my sponge when I was doing the gradient part. I ended up liking the way It looked so decided to just keep it the way it was then start all over.

Here is the gradient on its own.

After looking at it I decided to put some black and white glitter over top of the gradient. It gives it a more edgy look.

OMD 31 day nail art challenge Day 15-Hearts

I’m back from vay-cay! I had a great time gambling with money I shouldn’t have. This post was done the night before I was set to leave so I apologize for it’s lack of finesse.

I got the idea for this one while surfing the web. I tried to re-create the earth heart,cookie heart,Panda cookie,Skull heart, and the Orange heart. Sorry for the horribleness I could have spent more time on it.
