Pastel Gradient Sweater Manicure

I used China Glaze For Audrey, Mimosa's Before Mani's, and Sweet Hook for the base. I sponged them over my white polish base in a gradient fashion.

I then freehanded the sweater design with white acrylic paint.


And here they were a few days later still going strong!

Thanks for looking!

My Mom's Browning Nails

I recently did these Browning and pink camo nails for my mom for opening day of hunting season.

I free handed the entire design. 
I entered these nails in the Show Us Your Buckmark Contest from Browning. 
I would love it if you could take a moment and vote for my entry here.
Currently, I am number 32 on the front page but you can also find my entry by searching "nails".

Thank you for looking!

Neon Nails

I wanted to try something different for my nails- so I used this instagram for some inspiration. By the way- check out her other work! She is amazing!

I used New York Summer Hot Rocket Pink over white for the middle, ring, and pinky fingers. I used Finger Mache for the pointer.

I used acrylic paint for the diamond and the stripes. And I used black rhinestones for the pinky and middle.



These were some quick handpainted nails I did for my mom recently.

Quick Nail Art

I did this nail art really quickly recently.

I used MAC Salad Dressing for the ring finger. I used American Apparel Hassid for the ring and pinky. I can't remember the blue I used on my middle finger!

I used acrylic paint for the stripes and crosses. I sponged polish on the middle finger.

Thanks for looking!

Things My Nails Match

I wore this mani recently. I used Lynnderella I Don't Mean Rhinestones and Zoya Frida in a jelly sandwich. Frida, by the way, is still my least favorite polish in my stash. It's just so...gross.

I noticed right away it matched my dog Bento's collar.

Also I did these nails for my mother recently :).

Thanks for looking!

Aztec Tribal Nails

Tribal print nails have been my white whale nail art idea. Ever since I first started seeing Tribal print nails showing up online I knew I wanted to do but never felt confident enough to try it. I'd always drool over pictures online but could never gather the courage to be fun and just do it. Since last night I had some free time I figured I'd give it a go.

I used Finger Paints Paper Mache for the background white and the rest is freehand with acrylic paint.

It's not perfect but I was so happy with the results. It's the first time in a long time I've backed away from my nails and have been impressed with myself.


And here it is without topcoat. 


My inspiration for the print is here.

I feel after successfully doing Aztec nails I can try a lot of patterns I've been dying to do.

What is your white whale?

Deborah Lippmann Nefertiti

Sorry for the lack of posts everyone! Bento, my morkie, recently had to have a biopsy done and I came down with a virus so I haven't been on the computer much lately.

This is 3 coats of Deborah Lippmann Nefertiti. 

It's a gold shimmery polish but the gold is interesting to me. It's so smooth and something about it is just different. I received quite a few compliments when I wore this!

I topped it with Today Was A Fairytale for an even more festive look.
