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.
