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 […]

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: 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: Green

[I recently updated my website and unfortunately the original post has been deleted, so I’ll try to remember the colors used as best as I can] For today’s green prompt, I decided to challenge myself a bit. I’ve actually never painted straight lines before. I know shameful, if you’re doing nail art, lines are probably […]

31 Day Challenge: Orange

Ladies. I mean, laaaaadiiiieeesss! I’m proud to say that I gave stamping another shot and I was able to actually get the image to transfer onto not just the stamper, but to my nails! I’m so proud of myself. Stamping has been one of the banes of my nail art existence and today, I kicked its ass. […]

The acclaimed B2B event is the only event for the beauty industry in North America that encompasses all sectors of the industry under one roof […]
