Christmas Skittles

Hey dolls! I spent most of November with plain nails while they grew out and they're finally at a point where I feel like doing nail art again. Of course with Christmas so close, now I don't really have time for it.

I decided to do Christmas themed skittles. I like skittles. I pick a color or design, then do one nail on each hand with it, and before I know it, everything's painted.

I used some perfect Christmas polishes for this. My favorite, Salon Perfect - He's With Me for the red, Snowman Polish in Green and Red & Green glitter, Sinful Colors - Snow Me White, and Salon Perfect - Glow Pink as a base under my glitter.

Have you guys done any Christmas nail art so far?

Candy Apple Nails

Hey guys, I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!

Today's nails are a treat I had in the vault from before my break. Here's some Fall appropriate nails that were unplanned and totally a spur of the moment design.

I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Cinna-Snap and then picked up one of my Fall favorites, Sally Hansen - Pumpkin Spice and painted on some drips.

I didn't realize it until I was done, but these nails remind me to another Fall favorite: candy apples. Pumpkin spice and candy apples sound real good right about now, don't you think?

#TBT - Fall Inspired Gradient

Here's a lil something new here: a #ThrowbackThursday post.

I did these nails on October 7, 2013. At least that's what the date says on the picture file.

I think at the time I was using Pink Armor as a base coat. Then I used Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Sunny Side Up for the orange and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Pumpkin Spice over that.

Posting a right hand pic just so you can see Pumpkin Spice in the shade. It's gorgeous and I keep reaching for it every Fall.

I haven't done much nail art at all since I broke two nails last month. Hopefully by Thanksgiving they'll grow out enough that I can enjoy doing it again. Till next time.

Happy Halloween 2014

Happy Halloween guys!

Today I've got some Halloween inspired nails. They're not super Halloween themed like the ones I did last year but more like regular nails with a spooky twist.

Here's my right hand, that hasn't been seen much on the blog lately.

I used Hot Topic - Matte Black and Wet N' Wild Fergie - No Place Like Home on the black & glitter nails, Wet N' Wild Mega Last - I Red A Good Book and a Kiss nail art striper in black on the plaid nails, the same matte black and KleanColor - Americano on the stud nails, and matte black for my black cats along with Sinful Colors - Snow Me White and a glow in the dark Pumpkin Polish in yellow for the eyes.

If some of these nails look familiar to you, it's because I redid the plaid design that I did here for Day 26: Inspired By A Pattern during the 31 Day Challenge. I wore the leggings that I used for my inspiration. Want to see how the outfit turned out?


You can probably spy my new iPhone. Yup, after being SO excited that I did Apple nails on September 9th when it was announced, I finally got one. These are some of the first pictures that I took with it and so far I'm really loving the camera.

These are the only Halloween nails that I'm doing this year. I ended up breaking two nails trying to open a box. I'm kind of bummed because I wanted to enter a gross nails contest for Halloween but after having actual bloody nails and having to cut them all down, I'm cool with it, haha.

Hope you all have an awesome Halloween!

Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hey guys! It's been awhile. I've been detoxing from the polish fumes after the 31 Day Challenge!

I'm back with pink nails for October's Breast Cancer Awareness month. My family, like so many others, has been affected by this disease, so I thought it was time for me to post my first pink nails.

I used Wet N' Wild Mega Last - Candy-licious and then did different designs using Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Tickled Pink.

This is a lovely color combo and represents a good cause. What's your favorite pink of all time?

#31DC2014 - Day 31: Honor Nails You Love

Is it really the last day of the challenge? Has this flown by for anyone else while simultaneously seeming like it would never end? Is this too many questions to start a post with?

For today, I was inspired by a picture I've seen around Instagram for a Cirque Colors contest.

I really loved these nails and they're similar to the shape of mine, so I decided to recreate them using colors that were as close as I could get.

I started by painting my nails with Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Black Creme then taped off with striping tape and did the inside part in Sinful Colors - Happy Ending to create the black outline. I topped that off with Sally Hansen Lustre Shine - Plume to give it a more duochrome shiny look. I peeled off my tape and topped it off with topcoat.

I did these while watching Pawn Stars and I must've watched at least 3 episodes. By the time I finished it was after 3am, and I was pretty tired, so I decided to leave them as is.

I think these have an antique look to them, but that really might be the Pawn Stars talking. Maybe I should go call a buddy of mine to check them out. ;)
