31 Day Challenge: Inspired by a Movie

For the movie inspiration, I went with the latest movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitgerald’s┬áThe 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: […]

31 Day Challenge: Water Marble

Fall is a day away, but here in Southern California, we’re still sweating it in the 90s-100s. I mean seriously, seriously? It’s so hot, I die. I miss wearing pants or a light sweater and feel comfortable. I’m hoping this fall mani will get California weather in check, because it’s getting pretty ridiculous. Water marbles […]

31 Day Challenge: Galaxies

I love galaxy nails if only because sometimes, the messier the better! They seem really intricate, but really, they can be done in as quickly as five minutes. Colors used: Serum No. 5 Acai of Relief, Indi-Glo, Blue Blazes, Laven-Daringly Bright, Pure Glow Getter and Lights Out and China Glaze Fairy Dust. To do these, […]

31 Day Challenge: Geometric

For geometric nails, I wanted to do something easy, so I thought how about some simple shapes to form a mosaic? Easy, right? Wrong. Guess who was sorely mistaken and spent over an hour doing her nails painstakingly painting triangles? This girl… Colors used: Essie Blanc and China Glaze Neon & On, For Audrey and […]

31 Day Challenge: Delicate

It’s day 15 and I’m halfway there! For today’s delicate prompt, I wanted to use Indi-Glo because it’s all reformulated and I hopefully (knock on wood) never have to go through that whole ordeal ever again! So what’s blue and delicate? Porcelain! Colors used: Serum No. 5 Indi-Glo, Essie Blanc and OPI Keeping Suzi at […]

31 Day Challenge: Flowers

I have a weakness for floral nails. I love them. They’re so pretty and intricate and I wish I could do them. Haha! For today’s mani, I went for a bright pop of flowers over a black background. Colors used: Essie Blanc and Licorice and Serum No. 5 Krypton-Brite, Atomic Peach, Orange You Sunny, Awesome […]
