Nail Art April: Minimal, Pop of Color and Accent

Of course I was late again, so here’s another combination mani that combines the last three prompts: minimal, pop of color and accent. So, I did them all together… on one nail šŸ™‚ I used the just released Serum No. 5 Guiding Light as the base of my mani and applied a quick dry top […]

Catching Up on Nail Art April: Blue Skies, Springtime, Little Critter and Earth Day

I so fail at nail art challenges, I just forget or push it aside thinking “I’ll do it later” and then never do. So I’m catching up to combine my missed prompts into one mani. I’ve done this a few times and I actually like thinking of how I can create a cohesive design and […]

Nail Art April: Dotticure

It’s belated, but here’s the Dotticure prompt. For those that don’t know, a dotticure is pretty much a nail art design that is composed of dots. To do this, I just used a couple of dotting tools in various sizes. I used China Glaze Friends Forever, Right? for the base and Sun’s Up Top Down […]

Nail Art April: Favorite Flower

Catching up on posting about the nail art challenge, so here’s my favorite flower prompt. I love peonies, but I haven’t been able to freehand this as well as I would like. So I made some Cut It Out Nail Vinyls with peony stencilsĀ and they also have ranunculus too. For these I used a mixture […]

Nail Art April: Easter

Happy Easter! For today’s Easter prompt, I decided to freehand a kawaii bunny and do some easy-peasy Easter egg-ish nail art using the vinyls from the Know Your Lines Cut It Out Nail Vinyls. For this mani, I used Essie Blanc, Essie Licorice and China Glaze Pinking Out the Window for the bunny. I then […]

Nail Art April: Pastel

Decided to do Californails’s The Totally Doable I Have a Life! Challenge, so let’s get to it. For “pastel” I decided to do something quick and simple, gotta ease myself in, you know? So I used Essie Urban Jungle (similar to Essie’s We Can Do It Pink!), Ā Essie Stones N’ Roses and Serum No. 5 […]

Cupid Brings LOVE Mani

Happy Saturday, lovelies! Today’s mani is incredibly easy, the hardest thing is to peel off the decal stickers and to remove all of the unwanted bits. I love easy nail art. To get this look, I painted my index and pinky with China Glaze Seas the Day and my middle and ring with China Glaze […]

Make My Heart Skip

Happy Sunday, lovelies! I’m going to try to do some Valentine’s Day inspired manis and here’s a really easy one to do! For this mani, I started with a base of Orly First Blush and used top coat. Once it was completely dry, I used the long heart beat lines in the Love Struck Cut […]

31 Day Challenge: Honor Nails You Love

It’s the last day of the 31 day challenge! Can I just say it’s about time? There are so many nail designs that I love, but today I couldn’t decide on one; then, I saw this simple white designs from a local salon’s IG account (kawaii_nails_tustin_ca). Obviously, theirs looks much better than mine. I really […]
