It's the second day of the challenge and I feel like I'm already falling behind cause I'm posting everything so late in the day. I'll try to keep up tomorrow and have the manis ready in advance, I promise :)
For today we had to do gold, I initially did a completely different thing but it didn't came up as I pictured it in my head so I removed it and then remembered I had this lovely glitter polish and decided it to used it instead.
This is a polish I got last year at Old Navy (didn't even know they made polishes) and I love it. It's a mix if super small gold and cooper glitter in a clear base, the formula was great, I used 3 coats for full opacity and no top coat since it didn't dry gritty.
Being the stamping obsessed I am I couldn't just leave the glitter alone so I stamped some gold stripes using China Glaze Passion and my Shany SH23 plate.
I love how pretty it turned out.
Can you believe it's December already? This whole year went by so fast and I'm really excited to finish it with a nail challenge. Recently I was given a Lovely Blog Award by the lovely lady behind the polish aholic blog and I found out they were doing the Advent Calendar Nail Challenge, I of course had to join in.
It's 24 days filled with awesome holiday nail art, I have a picture of the whole break down below:
Now on to the first day nails. For this mani I used 2 coats of A England Merlin, the most awesome silver glitter and Zoya Sookie with Bundle Monster's BM -205 plate. In my ring finger I have 2 coats of China Glaze Love Marilyn.
I really love how this turned out. Now go check out what the girls came up with.
What do you think of this mani? Are you rocking holiday nails yet?
Thanks for reading <3
I have just a simple mani for today, a little red and silver to start getting in the holiday spirit and the Christmas manis :D
For this I used China Glaze The Ten Man as base and China Glaze in Winter Berry and Hey Sailor for the stamp using the Bundle Monster 215 plate.
Take a look:
I used two different tones of red for the stamp but you can barely tell, this second picture gives you the idea of it thanks to the bad lighting haha.
I like how it turned out I only wished the difference in the reds were more noticeable. What do you think?
Thanks for reading <3
Today I have some nail art to show you, it's a pretty simple design but it looked pretty good and I love the colors cause it made my nails look so vibrant, this was actually inspired by a sweater I had on the other day that had like fuchsia and purple stripes but I decided to give it a twist and use waves instead of just plain straight stripes.
Check it out:
For this mani I used Orly Miss Conduct as base color, then I stamped the waves with Color Club Secret Agent and Bundle Monster's BM-210 plate. I wish the purple would've been a little but more intense but I still like the outcome.
And that's it! What's your favorite color combo? Let me know in the comments
Thanks for reading <3
I have my first fall/thanksgiving nail art today. I used Sally Hansen Lava as the base color and then stamped the leaves with China Glaze Passion. I absolutely love how it turned out, the colors all compliment each other really well and after I painted my nails I couldn't stop staring at my fingers.
I don't exactly remember the number of plate I used for the leaves but as soon as I do I'll update this post. Update: the plate I used is Konad M83.
Thanks for reading <3
I've bought a lot of nail polishes in past weeks and I though I'll start a nail of the day post and force myself to try them all.
For the first installment of the series I have a Konad manicure from a new plate I got at the mall.
This is what I used:
- Color Club Love'Em Leave 'Em (Base Color)
- China Glaze First Mate (Stamp design)
- Konad plate M63
PS: I added the Color Club Love 'Em Leave 'Em swatch to my Nail Polish Swatches section in case you want to check it out.
Have a good one!
I have a really cute design for St. Patrick's day.
I used a few things which you can find detailed below.
For the french tip I cut the edge of a masking tape with a nail clipper to have that rounded edge and then I put it on my nails as a guide.
I know they already sell the french tip guides but as usual I didn't have any and had to come up with my own solution.
This is a pic of the things I used for this design, from left to right:
- Seche Vite top coat
- LA COLORS Color Craze in Treasure Island (French Tip)
- LA COLORS Color Craze in Current (Base Color)
- China Glaze in Passion (Big Clover Stamp)
- Kleancolor Nail Duo in Incredible (Small Clover Stamp)
- Bundle Monster plate BM 03, this has the clover designs.
I hope you like the design. If you have any questions just let me know.
Have a fun week!
I feel that I haven't posted a new nail art design in soo long, I've so busy taking care of other things that I don't have an afternoon to sit down and play with my polishes and my plates and come up with new fun designs. I finally have an afternoon off to play and did this super quick design on my nail which were already painted light blue since last night but, they weren't dry enough when I went to sleep and got the texture from my pillowcases, anyways let's cut to the chase.
I love how light blue and red look together, the contrast really caches my eye so I used my Bundle Monster plate BM01 and Hey Sailor from China Glazes' new collection for the stamps.
Also, since the base color was so messed up I used China Glaze Fairy Dust which is a clear base with glitter as top coat to cover the smudges.
And I almost forgot, the base color is from Kleancolor light teal.
I was all kinds of busy yesterday and got home so tired that I couldn't post this design yesterday.
It's a really simple design that I did just for fun because the guys from work and I are going to close the office on Friday and go to the beach instead (woohoo!!!) So, I took my beach towel out and started thinking... I can do this on my nails.
And here it is!
I painted my nails white first and then I cut 5 masking tape strips to put on the center of my nails to paint the other 2 colored lines.
The green color is China Glaze Paper Chasing and the blue one is China Glaze Sexy in the City.
You can use any 3 colors you like and make your own design.
Hope you like it!
I hope you're all enjoying your Super Bowl Sunday.
I'm not a big fan of football so I probably won't be watching the game (at least not entirely) instead, I decided to try another Valentine's Day manicure.
This was something I thought yesterday at work, it is really simple to do.
First, I used white as base color to paint my nails and I added a silver glitter on top of it to make it more fun.
Second, I added the little heart with a shimmery dark red color and the little hearts from my Bundle Monster plate BM03.
I applied a clear top coat to that and waited for it to be completely dry.
Now, for the cheetah part I used masking tape to cover the little heart in the design and sponged the rest of my nail with China Glaze Good Witch.
Finally, just stamp the cheetah design from the Konad plate M57 with a hot pink color and you're done!
Hope you like it,
