Icicle Nails

Today I have more of a wintery mani for you guys. I thought Holo Blue would be a perfect base for an Icicle mani and then I chose a dark blue to go with it and added Diamond Love to give it a more icy look.

New Gold Glitter

Today I have for you guys a Nabi polish which is in its new bottle shape and new formula but it still smells horrible. This is definitely the worst smelling polish ever and the smell still lingers once it dries. Anyway aside from that it's a very glittery polish that is very festive. It has gold mico glitter, red holo round glitter, and silver holo bar glitter.

What I used:
- Seche Clear
- Nabi New Gold Glitter (3 coats)
- Seche Vite

Christmas Mani: Peppermint Candies

Hello and Merry Christmas! This is what I currently have on my nails for the holiday. I got the idea for this mani from some holiday cards I bought at Michael's and then I did an accent nail of  a peppermint stick.

Christmas Party Mani!

Hello and Happy Holidays! Last week me and my friends had our annual Christmas party and this is the mani I came up with to celebrate the event with. I did hollies on two fingers and the other two fingers are supposed to be like wrapping paper  and lastly on my thumb a tree. This was my first time using KleanColor's Nail Art polishes Nail to Toe. The formula was good but just like the Kleancolor polishes they take forever to dry!!!! So it took me a while to finish this mani!

Snow Angel Layering

Hello everyone! Today I have Snow Angel layered over Emerald City. Snow Angel is by this random to me brand BT that stands for Beauty Treats. This polish was kind of hard to capture and my pictures don't do this polish justice. It's an iridescent glitter polish that flashes gold, green and blue. Anyway hope you like it was very Christmas-y over Emerald City.

Cholo Party & Matching Nails

Hello ladies! So my friends and I love to have themed parties, because it's fun to dress up and it makes for funny pictures! Anyway we hadn't had a themed party in quite some time so last weekend we decided to have a cholo party. This was the second time we had a cholo party and everyone really gets into it even the guys since its easy to dress up for. To complete my chola look I had to have my nails done to match the theme as well. So I came up with a blinged out and kind of 90s looking design.

Nora's Peacock Nails

First of all I just want to say sorry that these pics are a bit blurry. I wasn't sure if I wanted to post them but they did come out really cute and you can still make out the design. So once again sorry for the not so focused photos.

So Nora had been wanting peacock nails for sometime and then when she came over the last time we finally did them and this is what I came up with.

My 1st Drip Mani!

So as the title implies this was my very first time trying to do a drip mani. I think it came out ok but it could definitely be a bit neater and I could also try to get a better shape next time.

Berry Leopard!

Hello everyone! So I know I've been super bad and haven't posted in forever so sorry but I have regular posts coming! Today I have a leopard print mani in a berry shade from OPI that I hadn't used, its an old polish from the Europe Collection that my friend gave me! I'll have to do a swatch of this polish on its own because it really is quite pretty with subtle pink shimmer to it.

Joslyn's Flower Accent Nails

Hello ladies! Once again my friend Joslyn's nails...She picked this design after seeing it on one of my practice nail art wheels and I just wanna say that I love the way this mani turned out, its so cute! The colors complement each other really well.

Hook 'Em Nora's Nails

Hello! Todays post is a mani I did on Nora about to weeks ago. She wanted a longhorn mani and this is what we came up with. This is not my first Longhorn Mani I did one last year on my nails, but it's still a tricky figure to draw and the proportions on the longhorn on her right hand came out all wrong. Oh well.

Plaid Nails

Hello, Hello Everyone! First off I wanna say how sorry I am for not posting at all last week I was busy/lazy and never got around to posting or preparing post. Secondly this is the current state of my nails  about two weeks ago two of my nails broke and I had to file them down to nubs which is also why I didnt want to post any pics of my nails. They are a bit longer now so they don't bother me as much, even though I'm still not used to having short nails.

Ok now onto my current mani.....Saturday night I painted my nails with Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow (which is and extremely dark green) and also wanted to use Rock His World but could decided to think of how to use them together so I just left them also. Then Sunday night I remembered about PAA monday nail art challenge and knew that would help me decided how to used the colors and it did! This weeks challenge was Plaid which works perfectly with these two colors. I got the inspiration for the design form a random nail art wheel I found along time ago on the web, hope you like it!

Friday, November 4, 2011


Today I have for you guys Glamrock from Nina Ultra Pro. I picked this up from Sally's after seeing it on Amy's nails from I'm Feeling Nail-Ventourous. This is such a beautiful polish, I highly recommend going out and getting it.

Joslyn's Tie-Dye Rainbow Nails

Hello everyone! Last week my friend Joslyn came over and wanted to do a rainbow nail but in a tie-dye effect. I had seen tutorials of how to get this effect but never done it my self so I was game to try it out. I think it came out pretty good for my first try but it could definitely be better.

Blood Red Nails

Hello again! This post is on how I decided to do my nails for Halloween. Since I was going to have my face all done up I really didn't want to have anything to distracting on my nails plus I thought it would clash with my costume if I had on some kind of design. Anyway, I settled on red nails but didn't want them to be bright red nails so I layered two KleanColor polishes and the result was this beautiful blood red looking color. I'll have to do swatches of these colors individually soon because they are both really pretty.

Happy Halloween! Dia de los Muertos Costume!

Hello everyone!!! So I hope you all had a great Halloween weekend. Mine was so much fun I went out everynight! Anyway what I'm most excited to show you is my costume, as I mentioned I was a Dia de los Muertos skeleton and each night I did the designs on my face different. For inspiration I just googled images and took from several ideas and mixed them up to create my own looks.

First look:

Second Look:

Third Look:

To create these looks I used Halloween make-up paint and to apply I used a make-up sponge and make-up brushes. For my hair I did to braids and then pinned them up with several bobby pins and then pinned  on the flowers. Hope you liked my costume! Happy Halloween!!!

Mummy May I Gradient Tips

So after sponging on Lubu heels on my tips in my Vampire Mani I got the idea to do the same thing with Mummy May I. I love the way this looks and it doesn't necessarily have to be a Halloween mani but works well for it to in a more subtle way. For a swatch of Mummy May I click here.

Halloween Stripes

Todays Halloween Mani is just some simple stripes in traditional Halloween colors orange, purple and black. Only my left thumb says Trick or Treat because I knew there was no way I was going to be able to write it on my right thumb but I still liked the way it looked with only that thumb as the accent.

Texas Rangers Mani

Sunday my bff Nora came over to get her nails done. She wanted to do something for the Texas Rangers who are apparently in the World Series and doing pretty good. Me not being into sports I had to google them to find out what the team logo looked liked. I decided to do the T logo as accents and then Nora settled on a triangle french tip for the other nails.

Super Mario Nails

Hello everyone! Yesterday my friend Joslyn and her sister Julie came over so that Julie could get her nails done. Its her sons first birthday party this weekend and it's Super Mario themed so she wanted to have matching nails to go with it. I used these two photos for reference here and here and just combined the two designs together to create the look below.

Vampire Nails

Hello Everyone! Todays post is another Halloween Mani. I wanted to do Vampire nails so this what I came up with. I did lips with fangs as my accent nails and on the rest I sponged on Lubu Heels onto black for a vampy look. Its too bad my nails are so short right now because I think this look would have been even better on long nails. Oh also before I forget to mention it I added a new label "Holiday" so that you can easily find any Holiday themed mani.

Hello everyone, hope you all are having a good weekend so far. Im super excited that its already October because I love Halloween, which also means I need to get started on doing some Halloween manis. Anyway, today I have for you all Chunky Holo Clover layered over white.

Joslyn's Nails: Dinosaur Egg Crackle

Hello everyone! So my friend Joslyn came over once again to get her nails done and this time we did some crackle. As I've mentioned before she only wears green nail polish so we did a darker bright green under the crackle which is a lime green shade. She said it looked like a dinosaur egg so hence the title of this post. This is also one of the shades that is up for grabs in my give so if you like it make sure and sign up for it! In other nail related news I broke my thumb nail last night which really hurt it bent back and broke so now I'm  going to have file all my nails down because I hate having uneven nail lengths...oh well, now onto Joslyn's nails.

Snake Skin Print with Tulle Tutorial

Hello everyone and welcome to my new followers! A reader Montyono4 left a comment on a previous Snake Skin Mani Post asking if I could give some step by step instructions. So here it is, I hope I do a good job of explaining and that the pics help. If you dont have the stamping plates (like me) this is a good alternative to get a snake skin print on your nails.

This is what the finished nail looks like.

Aqua Crystal & Rock Star Nails

Hello everyone 2nd post for today! Don't Forget to check out my giveaway! Anyway todays Monday so you you know that means another PaA challenge! This week it was Rock Star, and I wasn't sure what I was going to do but then I saw Aqua Crystal on my desk and since I hadn't used it I thought it would be a good time since its so glittery! With my base color picked out I need something to make it more "Rock Star". I settled on a guitar silhouette on my thumb nails as an accent. I think it came out pretty good although the proportions on the one on my right came out a bit big.
