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

Glitter Placement 2017 New Year’s Nail Art

Couldn't resist doing another New Year's design! This one is much simpler, using only Sinful Colors Supernova, a metallic rose gold, and the year written in hex glitters. For my thumb, I used silver glitter to represent the Times Square ball. Happy New Year everyone!!

New Year 2017 Blue Marble Nails

Themed Thursday December – Champagne Nail Art

I'm really loving the glitter in this nail art! I wasn't sure what to do at first and thought of just doing a shimmery design. Then I remembered Sparitual Cha Cha Cha, a glittery metallic purple, and knew it would be the perfect backdrop for a champagne look. It looks even more amazing with the gold glitter… Continue reading Themed Thursday December – Champagne Nail Art

31DC2014 Nails U Love: New Year’s Nails

Happy New Year's everyone! I kind of rushed this design a bit so I could get it done before midnight or else I'd have to tag it 31DC2015! I'm happy with how the nails turned out though. They're a bit simpler than the design they're based on (this one by esNAIL), and I changed a couple of things.… Continue reading 31DC2014 Nails U Love: New Year’s Nails

31 Day Challenge: Recreate Favorite Manicure

Yay! Finally the last day of the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge!! I really wanted to get it done before the new year; I've been working on it since September! It's been very frustrating at times but I'm glad I did it, there were designs I wouldn't have thought of or tried otherwise. I'll be… Continue reading 31 Day Challenge: Recreate Favorite Manicure
