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: 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 […]

31 Day Challenge: Inspired by a Tutorial

Today’s nail art challenge is brought to you by Pshiiit! I always loved how Camille structured her nail art tutorials, so I had to give one a try! Colors used:Essie Blanc, Essie Style Hunter, Essie The More the Merrier, Essie Pretty Edgy, Essie Licorice, Zoya Darcy, Zoya Flynn, Milani Nail Art Striper in White and […]

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 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 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: 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, […]
