Glam Nails Challenge June 2018 – Paisley Nail Art

The second prompt of this month's challenge is paisley. I personally don't like how paisley patterns look all that much, so I went with a simple design. I still wanted to keep it a bit colorful, so I used a variety of polishes for the background and lighter shades for the paisleys themselves. Revlon Plum… Continue reading Glam Nails Challenge June 2018 – Paisley Nail Art

Glam Nails Challenge June 2018 – Cactus Nail Art

I always get the urge to do some nail challenges during the summer months! I'm a little bit late, but here's the first prompt for this month's Glam Nails Challenge: cactus (or cacti in this case)! I just did a cute little pattern I thought of right after seeing the prompt. The base shade, Ciaté Pretty… Continue reading Glam Nails Challenge June 2018 – Cactus Nail Art

Nail Polish Nails – Liga Nailista Challenge

I think these turned out so cute! These nail polish nails are for the freehand prompt of the Liga Nailista Challenge. I could have done something a little more complex, but I got the idea to do this pattern and just went with it! I used my Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Pens over… Continue reading Nail Polish Nails – Liga Nailista Challenge

80s Pattern Nails – Liga Nailista Challenge

Here are some 80s inspired nails for the second prompt! I really like this type of pattern and I think it can be done so many different ways too. I used four nail polishes for the base colors: Salon Perfect Purple POP!, a neon purple, with LA Colors Just Radiant, a shimmery purple layered on… Continue reading 80s Pattern Nails – Liga Nailista Challenge

31DC2017 Inspired by a Pattern – Mermaid Scales Nails

This nail art is one of my favorites from the designs I've done for this year's challenge. I love the combination of turquoise and gold and I'm really happy with how the scales turned out. I used nail vinyls, sponging a few different shades of teal and green on top to achieve a shiny, metallic… Continue reading 31DC2017 Inspired by a Pattern – Mermaid Scales Nails

31DC2017 Geometric – Stenciled Triangles Nails

Geometric is one of my favorite prompts and I've done a lot of geometric designs in the past. Normally I freehand them, but for a change I decided to use stencils with a triangle pattern. It turned out a bit messy because instead of sponging the white over the stencil I applied it with a… Continue reading 31DC2017 Geometric – Stenciled Triangles Nails

31DC2017 Flowers – Yellow & Blue Floral Nails

I didn't want to have to take a break during the challenge this year, but my nail that was on the verge of breaking finally broke off. I couldn't paint it so I had to wait a few days for it to grow back at least a little bit. In the meantime I prepared some… Continue reading 31DC2017 Flowers – Yellow & Blue Floral Nails

Tie Dye Nail Art

These are definitely my favorite so far from the challenge! I hadn't done tie dye nail art before now, so this took me some practice. This design is actually my second try, because my first, blue and white swirls, didn't look like tie dye at all. I took some photos and might post it eventually,… Continue reading Tie Dye Nail Art

Yellow Dot Nail Art

I've been really feeling the color yellow lately, so I did some simple bright polka dot nails. The lighter yellow is ORLY Lemonade and the darker yellow is Sinful Colors Pull Over. I wasn't sure how opaque the ORLY would be, so I first applied a coat of white, but it only took me two… Continue reading Yellow Dot Nail Art

Glam Nails Challenge Jan – Stamped Rose Nail Art

Finally, here's the last post for the Glam Nails Challenge! This design ended up being a headache and a half to do, and the above photo is from my third try. The prompt is 'favorite color,' so I debated between red and purple, but since I figured I'd be doing several red-toned designs now that… Continue reading Glam Nails Challenge Jan – Stamped Rose Nail Art
