25 Days of Christmas Lights

I had this idea a little while ago, not sure how I feel about the result. I may try to perfect it more if I do this design again.

White base with a pearly polish over top. Then used a nail art pen for the strings. Various colors for the lights. :)

Please let me know if you like the design and think I should do another attempt. XD

25 Days Of Chrismas, 2 Poinettia

Day 2: Poinsettia Water Marble

I used Zoya Veruschka and Zoya Posh, Over Sally Hansen White On to make sure that the 2 colors stood out against each other.

These colors marbled brilliantly by the way!

Starting 25 Days of Christmas Nails

Not to be confused with aligning to the song. XD I am not really interested in trying to do that. lol

Starting with some holly stamps. :D

The base for this is OPI DS Extravagence, but I can't seem to find or remember what I used to stamp.

Be prepared for the next 25 days to be filled with Christmas nails! :D

Bloody Halloween

So I know these are a bit messy, however I kind of wanted to show the red on my skins because it looks like cuts to me. XD

Done with some red polish (no idea which one I grabbed, since I have a ton of them) Over Sally Hansen White On

Also, just a note to a few rude commenters, who post anonymously (cowardly):
I do not care if you do not like my pictures, you do not have to look at them. Please allow me to enjoy my nail polish pass time without the rude comments. This is just for fun, I am not a professional nail artist. Thank you.

Black and White Halloween Design

In prep for Halloween, I wanted to go away from the standard Orange and Black combo. :D

This was Done with Sally Hansen White On, Black Out, and I do not remember the names of the crackles, but they are by China Glaze.

Fall Leaf Designs

In celebration of Autumn! Or at least now that it has finally started to look and feel like Fall here...

These are both done with Pro Brassi Bronze... many coats of it because it is thin, and stamped with Zoya Cynthia.

Cotton Candy Spun Sugar Nails

I am posting these a bit late. XD I actually did them last weekend and forgot to post the pic. I did the design for our county fair. I <3 Cotton Candy! :D

A few tips I learned from doing this. I used a tutorial from youtube, but here are some things worth mentioning (some of them the video did not) 

1) Super fast drting polish didn't really work for me
2) The polish must sit for a little bit to get "gooey" in order to make the strings.

3) It makes a little bit of a mess, but it was a lot of fun! And look how cute the finished product is!

Crazy Lisa Frank Nails

Nostalgia can be scary... These were in honor of my younger self who was in love with everything by Lisa Frank.

I put a pink base down and then used some Lisa Frank Stick on Designs... I found them among my old nail supplies. XD

This Crackle is amazing, works perfectly.

Green Sparkles

Another just because I felt like it design. 

This is Sinful Colors Happy Ending, with Zoya Rina painted near the tips.

I did not even attempt to sponge this because of those sparkles. I wanted to make sure they made it on to the nail.

Brown and Gold with some bling

This is another mani using Sally Hansen Forbidden Fudge. I also used Complete Salon Manicure Guilty Pleasure. 

I don't think I use these little gemmy things enough. They deff add something to the french mani, what do you think?

Chocolate with Pink Wednesday Frosting

I had no idea what I was doing here. XD I just knew I wanted to do brown with pink because I think the colors go so well together. These colors are Sally Hansen Forbidden Fudge (the brown), I sponged using Sally Hansen insta-dri Presto Pink, and then topped them off with Sally Hansen Diamond Pink Promise for extra sparkle!

Blue dots!

I cannot even remember or find the polishes I used for this. XD

It makes me think of rugrats for some reason, maybe like it just reminds me of cartoon children in general. lol

Cracked Neon Rainbow

I used all of Pro's Neon polishes for this, painting in stripes diagonally. Then added some black crackle, love the effect!

Lacy red on gold

Love how this turned out! Wish I could remember the polishes I used. XD

Dotted Tips

This is Zoya Dovima with Nubar Wildlife.

I love this combo and how this turned it. It sucks that matte polishes don't last very long, it chipped today (1 day).

Pink Wednesday with Glitter Tips

Another Pink Wednesday!

This is Sinful Colors 24/7

I added some glitter! This is Revlon Blue Mosaic. It is gorgeous.

These were fantastic, they sparkle in every lighting, love them!

Black and White Ninja!

This is just standard Sally Hansen back and white polishes. I used a dotting tool to do the design.

For some reason these reminded me of ninjas. lol. Anyway I really like it and got a lot of attention for them as well.

Nubar Wildlife

So obviously this is Nubar Wildlife swatches. In the second pic you can see the green duochrome.

It's a very pretty polish and I hope my camera did it justice. :) (Maybe enlarging the images would help also.)

Swirly drag marbling.

This is 2 wet coats of Sally Hansen Marine Scene drag marbled with one of my pearly polishes.... I can't remember which specific one now. XD

I love how this turned out. Drag marbling is also quite easy, but the long drying times can really stink.

31 Day Challenge! Day 31 - Repeat a Design! Galaxy Nails!

I LOVED my galaxy nails! I may do them a few more times simply because they are so awesome! lol Next time I will post a tutorial for them too, since I have been asked by a few people offline how to do them.

So the Challenge is over, but it was a lot of fun. If you haven't done it yet, I suggest it. :)

31 Day Challenge! Day 30 - Tutorial - Peacock Nails by Kayla Shevonna

I'll start with the tutorial I used, which was She does amazing work, and if you are not following her you should be!

I did not have the exact polishes she used, but I had close enough. These are (from right to left) Wet and Wild The Gold and the Beautiful, Orly Liquid Vinyl, China Glaze Blue Iguana, Sally Hansen HD Spectrum, Sally Hansen HD DVD, and Zoya Ivanka. Basically you need sparkly colors in a gold, light blue/teal, darker blue, purple, and green.

This is 3 coats (ish) of The Gold and the Beautiful. I say -ish only because I did a couple huge layers, it is a clear base and I really wanted the sparkles to be a complete layer.

Next I made lines with Liquid Vinyl, making sure to leave a V of gold at the top of the nail. In that V, I used a larger dotting tool to put a dot of Spectrum (any light blue/teal will do).

In this part I did a lot. I wanted all the layers to blend a little so each strip is still wet when I put the next one. So I started here with a dot of my darker blue, Blue Iguana) in the middle of my larger light blue dot. Then I did stripes of light blue (spectrum), purple (dvd), and green (Ivanka). The order I don't think really matters, and you do not have to do this wet. Feel free to play around with the colors too. I think I may try some different ones with this if I ever do it again.

Here is the finale. It was nice and sunny, so the mani was shiny. :)

So tomorrow is the last day. I will be repeating my favorite design. I know which one I liked the most, but it'll be a surprise. :D

31 Day Challenge! Day 28 - Inspired by a Flag

I chose the Japanese flag... mainly because I did a design for the US flag, but well I messed up horribly.

Tomorrow is supernatural, which has a lot of options huh...

31 Day Challenge! Day 27 - Inspired by Artwork

This did a drag marble for the base, then added pearl colored large dots, then sparkles on top of the bubbles.

I used my own art for my inspiration... I don't think it's cheating. XD I just am not much into traditional art besides doing it myself. lol

If you want to see more of my art though, you can go to :D

So, tomorrow is a flag. I am not sure about this one... XD

Rebecca likes nails is holding a contest with all of her favorite things! The details are at, but today is the last day, so if you still wanted to enter you have to hurry. I am late of course because of the 31 day challenge. XD

Of her favortie things I did a subtle animal print on the tips, dots, and added some bows! I hope she likes it!

Here was the first steps done, and I took a picture in case I messed it up added the rest of the things I wanted. XD

Here is my pattern that I used a inspiration. It is a shower curtain in my fiance's house.

Hmm, next is an artwork. A great chance to plug my own works, huh? :D

Here is the "fashion" I was inspired by.

Here are my Base colors. Sally Hansen Silver Sweep and Orly Liquid Vinyl

I then stamped the reverse.
