Distressed Metallic Halloween Nails

I've been pretty busy this month decluttering and organizing (especially my nail polish collection) so I didn't get around to doing as many Halloween designs as I would have liked. Still, I'm glad I did this one, because I really like the distressed look mixed with the stamped skulls. For those, I used stamping plate… Continue reading Distressed Metallic Halloween Nails

Stamped Woodland Animal Nails

For these woodland animal nails, I decided to go for a subtle color to focus on the stamps. I used Revlon Romantique, a dusty pink, that from certain angles blends with my skintone. I then stamped a variety of images from Harunouta plate L018. These are really cute and I like how they perfectly fit… Continue reading Stamped Woodland Animal Nails

Stamped Easter 2018 Nail Art

This design took me a while, but I love it. I used stamping plate L033, an Easter-themed one with several bunny and decorative egg designs. Since I bought stamping polish in different colors a while back, I had intended to use my jelly stamper which I really enjoy, but it would not fully pick up… Continue reading Stamped Easter 2018 Nail Art

Butterfly Glitter Globe Nails – Glam Nails Challenge Jan 2018

The snow globe prompt gave me so much trouble. I first tried doing a neon design and stamped some snow globes on it, but it just didn't look right. Then I tried freehanding moon and stars in the globes, but I didn't like that either. I took a short break and tried again with this… Continue reading Butterfly Glitter Globe Nails – Glam Nails Challenge Jan 2018

Stamped Penguin Nails – Glam Nails Challenge Jan 2018

I wasn't too excited about this prompt since last year for January's challenge penguins were also on the list and they're not really my favorite. Still, it didn't take long to do and it looks alright. The pattern is from plate BP-L063, which is full of cute animal images. For this design, I began with… Continue reading Stamped Penguin Nails – Glam Nails Challenge Jan 2018

New Year 2018 Nail Art + Gel Top Coat

Happy New Year 2018! I got a 12W Kedsum LED Lamp for Christmas, so this is my very first try doing gel nails, at least partially since I only used a gel top coat. As a disclaimer, I wanted the lamp to try out nail powders, not for long-wear gel nails, so I didn't follow… Continue reading New Year 2018 Nail Art + Gel Top Coat

Stamped Kwanzaa Nails

I really love how these festive Kwanzaa nails look! The only thing I would change would be to use a greener green - the one I used for the stripes, Revlon Wild, looks more like gold. For the red stripes I used Revlon Ravishing, a bright tomato red. I really like how the accent nail… Continue reading Stamped Kwanzaa Nails

Stamped Snowflakes on Glitter Nail Art

For these snowflake nails I used stamping plate BP-L056. I first applied two coats of a lavender polish by Academy of Colour. Over that I used Julep Ani, a purple and pink glitter, which doesn't show up too much in the photo, but in person looks nice. I hadn't realized until I looked back on… Continue reading Stamped Snowflakes on Glitter Nail Art

Autumn Leaves Nail Art

I'm really loving these autumn inspired leaf nails! These took me a while since I did a couple different techniques. For my thumb and pinky nails I did water spotting using spray hand sanitizer. The pinky nail looks more like a water marble, but I just experimented with the water spotting to get different designs.… Continue reading Autumn Leaves Nail Art

Stamped Halloween 2017 Nail Art

Here are my nails for Halloween! There were a ton of images on the stamping plates (BPX-L007 and BP-L057) I loved and was saving to use all together in one design. I had planned to color these in, but due to time I just did them in black and white. I'm actually glad I didn't… Continue reading Stamped Halloween 2017 Nail Art
