PLL Liar’s Lament Game Board Nail Art

I had to take a quick break from the Glam Nails June Challenge to post these PLL nails! If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you might have seen the first Pretty Little Liars nails that I did back in 2015 – if not, you can check them out here. I love the show and have been watching it weekly since season 3 (after binge-watching the first 2 seasons). I’m super excited about the series finale (happening tonight!), but also sad the show will be over. So, for this last ever episode of PLL, I painted my nails in honor of the amazing Liar’s Lament game that was the focus of this half-season.

I began by sponging OPI Color Paints Primarily Yellow and Landscape Artist over white to represent the grass. I also sponged Finger Paints Scenery Greenery, a darker green, on the two middle nails so the name would stand out. I then used Sinful Colors Navy I Do to make the roads, and Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Pens in White, Orange, and Green to add the letters and the other details.

I can’t wait to find out who A.D. is! Although I was wrong last time, I’m still sticking to Spencer’s twin for this reveal, with Melissa as a close second. Who do you think A.D. will be?

Sunrise Palm Trees Nail Art

The second prompt of the Glam Nails Challenge June is palm trees. I really wanted to do a green and yellow gradient, so I went with a sunrise theme.  The palm trees themselves weren’t that hard to do. I used a black polish to color in the land, then a liner for the trees. They ended up a little messy, but I don’t mind it, because it makes them look windblown.

Elegant St. Patrick’s Day Nail Art

Instead of going with my usual four-leaf clover designs for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day nail art, I did a simpler, nude design with green accents. Continue reading

Stamped Christmas Pattern Nail Art

Merry Christmas! These nails were kind of a rush job which is why they’re wrinkled in a few areas. I started with Sinful Colors Tokyo Pearl, a metallic white, on all of the nails except the accent. The stamping plate I used is Born Pretty Celebration BPX-L008. I love all the holiday designs on it and they’re so well done. The green I used is more on the turquoise side, Revlon Ocean, and the red is Essie Sweet & Delicious, both metallic polishes. When stamping, I applied both colors to the image for a gradient effect. For the accent nail, I applied the Revlon and Essie as the base colors, then topped it off with glitter: Sinful Colors Green Ocean, Sephora by OPI Be-Clause I Said So, and ELF Love Me.

Distressed Pineapple Nail Art

A quick pineapple design I did using some nail polishes from the new Ciaté Mini Mani Month advent calendar. I really like the distressed look of the pink and green nails. The index finger is my favorite since I used a green base instead of pink, so the design looks darker and grungier.

31DC2016 Polka Dots – Cute Frogs

I think this design turned out pretty cute. I wanted to stamp the frog faces, but the stamp I had in mind turned out to be a duck’s face instead, so I just freehanded them. Luckily I did have one frog stamp from my Born Pretty plate (BP-L 001) that I used on my ring finger nail. In hindsight, I think the polka dots would have looked better if they were slightly bigger and more spread apart, but I’m still happy with the results.
