Avocado Nails

Today's nail art was inspired by the name of a new nail polish I had picked up a few months back. The base color of my nails is Avocado and it's by this cheap nail polish brand I had never heard of before but I liked the color so I picked it up along with a few other colors. Anyways a few days after buying it I decided to use it and decided to do an avocado/guacamole inspired mani, hope you all like it!

Swirl Mani

Hey!! Today I have a swirl watercolor looking mani. I wanted to do a water marble mani with these colors but didn't want to go through all the hassle of actually water marbling so I ended up just swirling the colors together on my nail. For this I started out with a base of Agent Lavender and then added several drops of each polish and swirled them all together with a toothpick. If you swirl the colors together to much just add more of whichever color you want to be more prominent within the design.

So these next couple of weeks I'm going to work on catching up on posting things! Todays design is something I did like maybe two months ago or so, its my version of zebra print. Hope you like it!

Halloween Crackle

I've so been failing on keeping up with posting on my blog it's already the 23rd and I'm barely posting a Halloween manicure and it's not even anything new its actually something I never posted from last year. I'm not sure why I didn't post but better late than never I suppose.

Lavender Flames

Today I have another old mani I did sometime ago...the colors I used were inspired by the leopard mani I did on my friend Vanessa and the design by one of my guy friends. I wasn't to crazy about the way it came out but oh well.

Girly Mix 'n' Match Nails

Still getting around to posting some older mani's. This is a girly themed mani with animal prints, diamonds, bows and hearts! What more can a girl ask for on her nails?!?! Hope you like it!

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Again a mani I did some time ago. It kind of has a tribal feel going on with the arrow design and then the leopard print ands a little something different. Hope you like it.

Glitter Safari

Finally getting around to posting! This is a mani I did some time ago with Man Hunt which I absolutely love its like the perfect blue. I started off sponging on Blasted Turquoise Glitter on the tips and then after a day or two I added a coat of Mermaid Tail because you never have enough glitter!

Vanessa's first time.....

Getting a leopard print mani!!!! The title was totally her idea just so you know. First post in a really long time but its a good one! My friend Vanessa came home for the weekend a while back and we had ourselves some lovely girl time catching up and gossiping and of course I did her nails. She was real excited to get a leopard mani! I love the color combo she chose they really went well together with this design.

Gradient: Electric Audrey w/Mermaid Tail

The day after I did my gradient mani I went to Sally's and picked up Orly Mermaid Tail and thought it would be perfect over my mani....and it was! My picture don't capture how awesome it looked in person and how pretty Mermaid Tail really is.

Gradient: Electric Audrey

Today I have a gradient mani using For Audrey and Electric Pineapple! I absolutely love they way these two colors look together!

Pink & Brown

Trying to catch up on posting designs I previously did. This design features hot pink and chocolate brown nail polish, I really love the way these two colors look together.

Zig-Zags & Dots

Another old design....On my left hand I did a zig zag pattern and on my right hand I did dots. I was going to do both hands with zig zags but I was running out of time and hand to get going so I just decided to do dots on my other hand since that would be quicker.

4th of July Nails: Flags & Stripes!

Happy 4th of July! For today I did a fairly simple 4th of July mani using nail art polishes, I did a flag accent naisl and the rest I did a striped design in patriotic colors. Hope you like it!

V-Gap Gradient

Finally getting around to posting manicures from like the past month and half. These are pretty old my nails have already grown and are back to a talon shape. This was the first time doing a v-gap mani and I decided to add a little twist to it and do a gradient with in the gap. Also sorry the pics aren't that great.

Neon Melon

Hello! So a while back my sister in law bought me a few Sinful Colors polishes and this was one of them. I wasn't too sure if I'd like this color against my skin tone cuz I thought it would be too garish but I actually really liked the way it popped against my skin! The only thing that kinda sucked about this polish is that it requires so many coats to be opaque.

Nude Leopard

I seriously never get tired of leopard print nails, especially in neutral/nude colors!

Striped Nails

Late post of a mani I did a while ago and just never got around to posting! Hope you like it!

Electric Charge

It's been a while since I've posted, I just get so lazy when it comes to preparing post and I also don't do my nails as often sometimes I even have bare nails for a couple of days!!! Anyways today I have a swatch of Electric Charge and some nail art that I didn't like the way it came out. Electric Charge is a salmon-y pink creme color, it's a really nice shade but idk why they named it electric charge doesn't really seem fitting but whatever.

Skull and Bones

Hello! Today I have some nail art using Fuchsia Rage as the base. I had been looking back at some of my nail art and wanted to recreate a design I had done with bones and eyeballs for Halloween. This time around I just kept the bones and did a dia de los muertos skull as an accent nail. Love the way this came out and I hope you all like it too!!

Fuchsia Rage

Today I have a swatch of a neon pink polish from Nina Ultra Pro. I'm pretty sure I have a very similar neon pink from KleanColor but I just couldn't resist getting it when I saw it at Sally's. These pics best capture the neon/brightness of the color but its not that intense in all lighting, I also got a pic of my nails under a black light which looks super cool! Enjoy tomorrow I'll have some nail art using this polish as the base!

Blue Collar

Hello everyone! Today I have for you all a swatch of a new polish I picked up this past weekend by Orly called Blue Collar. It's the most beautiful shade of blue ever the color just reminds me of a pool and summer. I also got a quite a few compliments on this color by people saying they liked the color even by some guys! Anyway I suggest you guys pick it up if you don't have a shade similar to it.

Chevron Nails

Today I have for you all a chevron/arrow print nail design. Originally I was going to do this using tape so that the lines would be really crisp but by the time I got started it was late and I was lazy so I used some nail art polishes to free hand the arrows so they aren't to clean looking or straight. Despite the none evenness of the lines I still really like the look of this design and I like how the colors I used compliment each other. Hope you like it as well!

Water Marble Fail!

Hello! Today I have for you all my failed attempt at water marbling. I've done water marbling before but hadn't done it in months but then lately I had been seeing so many bloggers doing water marbles so it inspired me to do it again. So this past saturday I picked out some polishes and got to but sadly it didn't turn out as good as I hoped. I really liked the colors I choose but I got a lot of air bubbles and the patterns didn't come out that great either. Oh well!

Guy Meets Gal-veston with Underwear

Hello! Today I for you all one of my favorite polishes Guy Meets Gal-veston with a base coat of white. Using white as a base alters the color slightly by making it more neon orange than the coral orange it really is you can see my swatch of it on its own here. I really liked how bright it is with the white base, I even wore it for like 5 days.

Green Apple

Today's post is just a swatch of Orly Green Apple. This is actually the color I wore on St. Patricks Day I just never got around to posting it.

Cracked Eggs

Hello! I hope you all are having a Happy Easter! I was planning on doing some actual nail are for Easter but then I got lazy and decided to just use some crackle polish to mimic cracked eggs. I also couldn't decide which color to use so I ended up using both pink and purple alternating on each finger and then to top it off I added Fairy Dust to give it a little more shimmer.

Pink Dots & Flowers

Todays nail art was inspired by a blouse I have that is covered in pink flowers. I really liked the print but didnt want to do all my nails with flowers so I just did one accent nail and did the rest of the nails with dots in the different shades of pink and white. Hope you like it!

Gold & Red Leopard Nails

Today I have for you all a mani I did on my bff Nora. I really love doing these half leopard mani's they are just so pretty and fairly easy to do! I was also happy because I got to use a polish from one of my new Color Club sets I got at Ross. I was always super jealous of hearing how other bloggers where always finding Color Club set at Ross because every time I went to the 2 Ross stores in my area I never found any of them. Then like two weekends ago I go in and I found two sets!!!! The Back to Boho set and Glitter Vixen set, I was especially excited about the glitters (even though im pretty sure they aren't the actual glitter polishes from that collection and just glitter polishes)! These are also my first Color Club polishes and so far I like them, I've used one of the other glitters on my toes and I just painted my nails with a Back to Boho color. Anyway now onto the pics of my friends nails!

Metallic Red

Today I have for you guys a swatch of a red metallic KleanColor polish aptly named Metallic Red. I've used this polish before as the base for my Blood Nails and realized I hadn't done a swatch of this color on its own so here it is. This is one coat with top coat, you only really need one coat  with this polish because the formula is pretty thick and it doesn't streak.

Snowcone & Gradient

Hello! Today I have another old swatch and nail art of pics I never got around to posting. Its a beautiful  muted light blue from Orly called Snowcone which is a perfect shade of blue for spring and summer! Then I added some gradient sponging with a metallic dark blue.

Nabi Purple Polishes

This past week a did a couple of manis but wasn't really liking any of them so I didn't even bother to photograph them so this week I'll have some swatches of polishes I never got around to posting. They're from sometime last year when I still had my natural oval/round shape nails. Anyway todays swatches are two purple glitter polishes from Nabi. The first is a deep wine/plum purple with gold and purple glitter and the second is more of a berry purple with red and silver glitter.

Purple Awesome-ness!!

Hello! Today I have for you all layered purple awesome-ness!!!! I had to adjust the color saturation to get the color of the polish right so thats why my skin color looks off, I hate that sometimes purple polishes come out looking blue when you photograph them...oh well. Anyway for this layering combo I started of with OPI INK. then a layer of Purple-xing then finally two coats of Motley. It is so much more awesome than the pictures look because the glitter form Purple-xing sparkles and you get the color shift form the flakes in Motley.

Bonita CO2

Today I have for you guys another polish from Bonita called CO2 which is a beautiful metallic teal. The color is crazy beautiful the only problem is that it stains like crazy! Even with a layer of base coat it still stained my nails. Then for something a little more fun I added an accent nail, hope you like it!

My Leopard Birthday Nails

Hello loves! This Saturday was my birthday and this was the mani I chose to rock! I loved my leopard vday mani so much I wanted to redo that design but in purple since Februarys birthstone is amethyst.

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Blue Steel

Hello! Today I have a swatch of a new to me brand called Bonita (which means pretty in spanish). I picked up a few polishes from this brand and let me just say that the name fits because so far the polishes that I've tried have been very pretty. Anyway I'll let the pictures do the talking!

Roses for Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!!! Hope you all have had a day filled with love and that its been a great day so far. I came up with the idea for this mani after I did my red/hot pink leopard mani. I wanted to do something with traditional vday colors red, white, and light pink but didn't want to do hearts so I decided to do some roses down the middle. I really like the way this came out so I hope you all like it as well!

Monday, February 13, 2012

Red & White Polk-a-Dots

Hello, today I have another V-day themed mani for you. I like this because it's not overtly valentine-y with hearts and stuff but still gets the point across.  

Sunday, February 12, 2012


I wasn't sure if I was going to post these pics up because as much as I love the way Ahoy! looks I didn't feel the pics I took really captured the color and how pretty it really is.  Anyway to make it a little more Valentine-y I added a dotted heart on my thumb nails, hope you like it!

Neon streak

I did this mani awhile back I just never got around to posting it....Anyway I got the inspiration for this mani because I saw a photo of a mani that used a hot pink with a pale nude pink and loved the way the two colors looked together. For my mani I freehanded the neon streaks and then used tape for the glitter streak, I was going to do them all pink but then decided it needed something a bit more flashy so I added the glitter streak on one nail.

Red Hot Leopard!

Ahhhhh so I know I haven't posted in like forever!!!! But I hope you all forgive me and that you still love me and my blog after all it is the month of Love!!! Ok so now onto my super awesome mani, I was so in love with they way this came out that I wore it for a whole week!!! So it all started off with the fact that I wanted to do a mani with red and hot pink but didnt know what kind of desing to go with so I went over to WAH Nails to get some inspiration and found a leopard print mani I liked and just recreateed it using pink and red. Its funny because I actually did a red and hot pink leopard print mani last year around v-day too but this one definitely takes the cake!!!

101 Dots

Todays nail art is very Dalmatian looking hence the title but that was not my intention. I was actually recreating a print from a blouse I have which you'll see further down.

Russian to a Party with Rose Accent

Hello everyone, hope you all are having a good weekend so far! Today I have for you guys some nail art on an accent nail. I first started off with Russian to a Party which is a beautiful burgundy red with gold shimmer in it. To pick up on the gold in it I decided to use Bling Dynasty as an accent and then added some roses to the tips. I really love the way this turned out, I should do more rose manis.

Agent Lavender

Hello everyone! So I've been really bad and haven't posted in like over a week, so for that I'm sorry! Today I just have a swatch for you but it is of a beautiful color and later this week I'll some nail art!!! Todays polish is Agent Lavender, which I absolutely love!!! I'm a sucker for pale or muted colors especially in light purple or blue shades. This was also a score for me because I got this polish for like fifty cents at a flea market.

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Long Red Claws

Hello! Today I have some Lady Gaga-esque looking nails. I used a classic red polish and then added some flat mirrored studs. I loved the way this turned out but I only got to wear it for a day because the shiny film on the studs peeled off, which totally sucked. I should have put an extra coat of Seche Vite.

Pink Glitter Sandwich

Hello Everyone! For  today is have a super awesome sandwich combo. I first did this on my toes for New Years because I wanted something pink and sparkly...any way I loved it so much I just had to do it on my nails. This is rare for me because I don't like to have matching nails and toenails also I usually only paint my toenails like 1-2 times a month.

Leopard Print Stiletto Nails

Hello! First off let me start by wishing you all a Happy New Year and that I hope you all are having a good new year so far! Mines been pretty good, I started off at a new job so I'm adjusting to a new schedule.

Secondly I now have over 100 follower!!! Yay!! So I will be having a giveaway sometime soon to celebrate and to thank you all for following along, so look out for that in the following weeks.

Lastly I filed my nails into a stiletto/almond shape! I had been wanting to do this for a while but had to wait for my nails to be long enough and they finally were so after the new year I did it. I know not everyone is a fan of this style of nail but I just like to mix it up every now and then. This is the second time I have my nails in this shape and I hope I can maintain them for a good time since they are more prone to break in this shape. Anyway no onto the nail art I thought doing a natural looking leopard print would go perfect with this shape of nails so I went with that and it looked fierce!!!
