Christmas Nails!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday. We had a huge breakfast with a ton of friends and family this morning, and I'm just killing some time before going to my aunt's for the rest of the day. So it's the perfect time to post my Christmas mani!

I can never decide on one theme for my Christmas nails, so I always end up doing a mash-up. This year I did a Christmas tree, Rudolph, plaid, a snowman and snowflakes. My snowman's mouth is a little funky because I smudged it and tried to fix it before my family came over last night. My right hand one looks even worse, hahaha. Looks like his eye is melting off.

Hiii! I know it's December 19th, but I still don't have festive nails yet. My next post will be though, I promise! I'm currently wearing snowflake nails, I just need to upload/edit the photos...so you're gonna have to settle for these...

These are just a tribal print nail over a subtle gradient. I really can't think of anything interesting to say about them right now....soooo here they are! Yay!

Purple & Gold Stripe Nails!

Hey guys! I'm still here, don't worry. Just being a slacker lately... #sorrynotsorry #mybasementiscold.

I have some purple & gold nails today. I won two Butter London colors in a giveaway a long time ago, and I realized I still had never used the purple one, so I decided to do something simple with them, and an Essie. So I did two stripes with some glitter in between them. Nothing too crazy!

Red Pattern Nails!

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I'm going to show you the mani I wore on Thankgiving actually!

These were inspired by a Thank You card I received at the end of the ice cream season. It had a really cute pattern on it and the girl who gave it to me wrote "I hope this card inspires a new nail tutorial!" I haven't made a tutorial for these though, at least not yet...

Rainbow Heart Nails

Heellloooooo!
I have a mani to show you today that was inspired by some watercolor hearts I found on Pinterest! For this look I used a ton of different nail polish colors and a small brush to make the tiny hearts. To make it a little more interesting I covered two nails completely in hearts and had it fade a little bit onto my index and pinkie nail.

Mockingjay Nails!

HHEEYYYY! GUESS WHAT MOVIE I'M GOING TO SEE TOMORROW NIGHT?!?!?!

Duh. Mockingjay!! I'm sooo excited! Can you tell? Hahaha. I've been binging on every cast interview I can find for the last couple of weeks because I just love that cast. I wish I was Jen, Josh & Liam's other bestie...sigh...


Ooooobviously I had to do a Mockingjay mani! I've already done three other Hunger Games manis here, here, and here, so I have to keep the trend going. I did these based on the book cover, like I did with my "Catching Fire" nails! I wish the actual Mockingjay wasn't so hard to see. There isn't a whole lot of contrast between it and the background of the book, and I didn't want to shade it too much because then it wouldn't look white anymore. The arrow is on the spine of the book.







Picture of the book, in case you don't know what it looks like.

Blue Skittlette Nails!

Purple & Gold Blended Nails!

Hi guys! Purple Nails today!

These kind of reminded me of the Effie Trinket Nails because of the colors I used. I love these though. I almost did these with just the purples and left the middle as blank nail, but I decided to add the gold, and I really like the way they came out.

They were super easy too, I started with small streaks of the lighter purple from the edges of my nails. Then I did small gold center steaks, went over the lighter purple a little bit again, and then did smaller purple streaks on the edges.






I used:
  • OPI: Vant To Bite My Neck?
  • Zoya: Kieko
  • Essie: Good As Gold
  • Seche: Dry Fast Top Coat

Marble Nails!

Heyyyy! Today I have some marbled nails to show you. Not water marbled though. I can't handle that.

I had seen Chalkboard Nails' smoke tutorial look and I really liked it, but I was in the mood for some color. So I kind of used her technique, but all over my nails and with blues/greens so it doesn't look like smoke at all. But I like the way they turned out!
