31 Day Challenge: Supernatural

Today’s mani is a mix and match featuring a cutesy bug-eyed vampire haha. I may have to do a Talonted Tips on this fella. Colors used: Essie Blanc, Essie Licorice and Essie Lollipop. For the negative space nails, I used some chevrons nail vinyls. Now for the baby Dracula, I free-handed the hairline by drawing […]

31 Day Challenge: Inspired by a Flag

Happy Sunday! For today’s mani, I decided to do the flags of the countries that I’ll be visiting for my upcoming trip in November! Colors used: Essie Blanc, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri I-Rush Luck, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri In Prompt Blue and Precision Nail Lacquer Billion Dollar Red. Can you guess where I’m going? I so excited!

31 Day Challenge: Inspired by Artwork

One of my favorite genres of art is Post-Impressionism. I love the whispy dreaminess of Monet, Van Gogh, Degas and Tolous-Lautrec. So for this challenge, I chose one of my favorite paintings (and I’m sure one of yours too), Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Colors used: Lacquer Lust Blue in the Face, Essie The Perfect Cover […]

31 Day Challenge: Inspired by a Pattern

I had a killer migraine yesterday so I put the challenge on pause. Luckily, today I’m all better so here’s my mani inspired by a pattern, I chose a Moroccan lattice for it’s apparent simplicity (I stress the word apparent) and it’s geometric shapes. Colors used: Essie Licorice and Blanc. To do these all you […]

31 Day Challenge: Inspired by Fashion

For today’s fashion prompt, I took a look at NYFW 2014’s runways. To me, I think it’s pretty easy to get inspired by runway trends. The colors, the structure, the composition… they all play so well together to give you that great floral or textured print or amazing color combination. For this mani, I was […]

31 Day Challenge: Inspired by a Book

I had these done yesterday but I was too tired to even try and transfer them onto the computer. I love this prompt because I’m a bookworm at heart. I’ll happily read sci-fi, romance, contemporary, self-helps and the classics. I mean, I read Crime and Punishment for fun. So as much of a bibliophile that I […]

31 Day Challenge: Inspired by a Movie

For the movie inspiration, I went with the latest movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitgerald’s The Great Gatsby. That book/movie is all about the glitz, glamour and disillusionment of the 1920s. And of course, all I can think of is how great art deco looks in black and gold. Colors used: Essie Licorice and OPI Love. […]

31 Day Challenge: Inspired by a Song

This prompt worked out perfectly for me. A while back, Emily of Very Emily, posted this mani using some of my new Cut It Out Nail Vinyls and I wanted to recreate this myself. Lucky for me, it also happens to fit into a song too! So today’s mani is inspired by Emily and Kid […]

31 Day Challenge: Inspired by a Color

You’d think color inspiration would be easy, but when it comes to nail art… not so much. I originally thought I’d go with red and do a bunch of red balloons, you know, like the song? But unfortunately, I’m pressed for time so I ended up getting inspired by the name of a nail polish: […]
