OMD3- Polka Dot

Grrr…. have not been doing much nail painting and I feel like it is because I am becoming depressed. The demotion is not all that bad, but some of the other supervisors are treating me different though I did nothing wrong, I did not ask for this and I feel that it was done due to my boss does not like me. The break-up is doing its thing we are trying to both do our own thing, but live together so we see each other every day and still nit pick at each other. I am feeling a bit lonely as I feel like I have lost a few friends in the matter as well. It could be me pulling away or I’m just imagining things. On to the mani. I saw this really pretty picture of black nails with colorful polka dots and was going to do the same thing, as I was putting one of the colors in I thought it looked cool the way it was so left it alone. I got lazy and did not want to walk to my nail polish bin so I just used the colors that I never put away that I used on my last mani.

I also forgot to show my new hair color, I have had it in for about a month now and am about to change it to purple. I decided to try the grey style that has been going around. It was fun for a bit, not sure if I will circle back around to it.

OMD3- Colorful

I am soooo behind with this challenge,but plan to catch up before the end. Life has gotten crazy again and out of hand. Now I’m dealing with a break-up and a demotion at my job. The break-up was my doing so I should not be feeling any type of way, but it is still an experience to go through as we still live together and are working out the kinks till the lease is up. The demotion hurt my pride a bit,but it did come with some perks. I can now read the 700+ e-mails sitting in my g-mail which mostly consist of other beautiful nail art, I can get back to reading again. I used to finish 5 books a month now I barely even finish 1 in a month.

The prompt I am on now is colorful. I saw this pretty mani and wanted to recreated it. I am hiding my pinky nail as I broke it off partying too hard the night before :(.

Polka Dots and Unicorn Farts

Yes, you read that title right I could not come up with what to title for  this mani   so I went with the name of the glitter polish I used by Funky Fingers unicorn farts– it consist of multi colored I would say large hex glitter in a clear base.

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Night Sky

Still playing catch up. Here is my take on night sky. I have done galaxy mani’s before and wanted to try it in a different way. I got the idea to try the galaxy french  from Nail Art 101.

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.

August 19th-25th challenge- Sand

So I finally did it and bough acrylic paint and  and boy was I happy. It was so easy to work with. I bough a cheap 14 color pack at Micheal’s craft store, but from what I hear online it was the right kind as it kind of had a water consistency. I heard if the paint is more solid it was not good to work with.

I wanna apologize in advance for my pictures. I did not clean my sponge when I was doing the gradient hence the bumps which are pieces of sponge that I could not get off. Also you can see cat hair that escaped my notice after I put on a top coat.

This idea is not my own and I got it from Nail Pro Magazine.  If you can’t see the image it is supposed to be waves washing up on a beach at sunset. ( whew long description).
