Orange & Black Nails

Hello!! Fall is here! Which means that Halloween is just around the corner! This was inspired by my friend Ray Laughter who sent me 'dry water marbling' techniques. I thought it would be perfect for the spooky season! It was very simple to do and the result is FIERCE! All I did was paint a base coat black and very quickly added orange globs of orange polish on the tips,  then I used a needle to create swirls while the polish was still wet! I used the opposite color scheme on each hand to make this more fun! Enjoy!

Bridal Shower Nails! Pink and Gold

Happy Labor Day Everyone!! Today is also my cousin's bridal shower and I took the time to match my nails to the occasion :) This is a simple baby pink look with scattered gold glitter. I also shot a video on how to paint with glitter polishes to get the best distribution of glitter on your nails. You may view that here. Thanks for stopping by!

Keroppi nails!

 Welcome again! Here's another simple look inspired by the Sanrio character, Keroppi! Listed are the steps that I took to achieve this design.

  1. French Tip your nails with a mustard-green
  2. Add polka dots on tips, leaving out your ring finger
  3. On your ring finger, use a dotting tool to create 2 large eyes with white polish. While that is drying, use a thin brush to paint a 'V' for the mouth in black polish. Use a dotting tool, dipped in red polish for Keroppi's cheeks. Lastly, add the black pupils to Keroppi's eyes.
  4. Ta Da!

Blue Metallic Flakies

Hey There! I've been experimenting with Blue Metallic Flakies and am thinking of adding them to my nail polish line! This would be a metallic flakie topcoat series in different colors. I used one coat of this flakie polish over a coat of black nail polish. What do you think? The metallic vibrance is more vivid in person! And I've been getting a ton of compliments so this experiment may be here to stay! :D

Purple to Pink Shimmer!

This polish is a thermal changing polish from Purple to Pink made by Ah-Ha Nail Lacquer. Since purple and pink are similar in shades of color, the color changing effects are subtle. I hope you like what you see!

Starts off as purple

Turns to pink when hot
Sorry for the indoor lighting. It's been rainy in CO.

Pink! Taken in the sun to display all the shimmers :)

If you look closely at my finger tips, you can see the slight different in pink/purple.

Can you see my purple tips?
