N.A.I.L- Dec 2014- Rudolph and Friends

I wanted to use this new glitter polish I bought the other day that I decided to do a snowy scene and add some decal stickers I got from crafynail last year in a x-mas card.  I like the look of the snow so much that I might do this again with some snow flakes. The color background was not too great with the stickers I used and you can not see the reindeer very well, but Rudolph is on the middle finger.

N.A.I.L. Gradient+ Nail-Art-A-Go-Go snow day

Still trying to kill two birds with one stone. N.A.I.L.’s theme for last week was gradient and Nail-Art-A-Go-Go was snow. I knew I wanted to usepirouette my whistle for a snow mani some day and bought it specifically for that reason. The gradient came from I just wanted to be a snowy morning. It came together pretty well.


Also I finally bought a bottle of seche vite base coat and top coat and lets just say no more smeared manis for me ( why did I wait so long to get this!)

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Inner Geek

It’s no secret that I am addicted to the show Sailor Moon. I have heard talk that they are bringing it back on TV so am catching up with all the old episodes I missed as a kid. My mani today was the inspired by each of the main characters signs for the plant they represent, the major girls are Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Venus, and Sailor Mercury.

My base colors were the colors to match each girl pink, red,blue,orange, and green with matching glitter on top.

Then I dabbled a dot of white acrylic paint in the middle of the nail and painted in the planet sign for each of the girls. ( please ignore Venus’s sign as my orange dried out and I had to make orange by mixing my red and yellow.

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.

Super Girl!

I ordered these water decal stickers on ETSY some time last year and decided to test them out while I am practicing on my one stroke for next weeks N.A.I.L. Challenge. ( still can’t get down the wiggle motion, but practice makes perfect!) This is not the original mani I wanted to do, but I wanted something quick and easy as I was pushing 2 am and was getting tired.


can you see where the decal was put on wrong?

#31DC2013- Yellow Nails

I’m pretty happy with the color choice for today I like yellow as it look good on my skin tone and I thing I went a little overboard yesterday prepping for today’s nail art. ( Am I the only one that does it the day before?) So I bought this Bat Girl shirt from Wal-Mart I had to have it, but almost didn’t due to there was a cape that was attached to it. It was removable, but that was not my problem. I was not sure if I was comfortable being almost 30 ( ……groan) walking around with a cape on my back. Then I was like I am almost 30 and why do I give a damn what others think. If they don’t like it they can give me money and I will go buy something they do like.  Here are a few pics with me and my shirt. Also my brother had a matching BatMan hat in the same colors so I took some pics with that too.
