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: 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 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! Europe […]

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 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 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: 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, […]
