Hoping for Spring: Part 2!

Base color in OPI's Suzi Shops and Island Hops from the Hawaii Collection.  I used Love.Angel.Music.Baby from the Gwen Stefani Collection for the gold dots on each nail.
The flowers were done in pastel acrylic paints.

This is the time of year where I am SO sick of winter (all winter usually...) and I just can't wait for that warm weather to come!  I'm hoping spring is just around the corner!

Doodle Flowers

Base colors from left to right include:  OPI's Aloha From OPI from the Hawaii Collection, Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection, Lost My Bikini in Molokini, and I Just Can't Cope-acabana from the Brazil Collection
On the feature nail, I used the other three colors and sponged them in three different spots along the nail.  Using black acrylic paint, I painted on little flower outlines.
Hopefully this will brighten your snowy and cold day!

Do You Take Lei Away?

Base color in OPI's Do You Take Lei Away? from the Hawaii Collection.
I used a white striper for the braided design on the nails.
Then, using a dotting tool and Crown Me Already! from the Miss Universe Collection 2013, I filled in some areas with glitter.  Enjoy!

Incubus Inspired

One of my favorite bands just released a new single yesterday for the first time in yearrrrrrs.  I got inspired by their cover art!

Base color in OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls from the Amazing Spiderman Collection.
Using a Bundle Monster stamping plate along with red and blue Konad stamping polish, I stamped the designs overlapping.

The video is down below! :)

Funky Dunky

Base color in OPI's Rumple's Wiggin' from the Shrek Collection.  This was then painted over in a diagonal fashion using Funky Dunky.
I added some purple glitter striping to the dividing line.  Using white acrylic paint, I painted two little hearts in the middle, just to make it a little Valentine's-ey.

Matte Hearts!

Base color in OPI's Cement the Deal from the Fifty Shades of Grey Collection.
The dots and the hearts are done using white acrylic paint and a dotting tool.  All was topped off with a matte topcoat.  Very simple and I love the matte finish!

Super Bowl XLIX Nails!


I've done a lot of Super Bowl nails in the past and have already painted Seahawk nails (last year) and Patriots nails (few years ago) so I decided on something a little different.

Seahawks:  Base color in China Glaze's Def Defying from the Cirque du Soleil Collection and Mahogany Magic from the Hunger Games Collection.  I used a white striper and blue glitter striper for the designs.

Patriots:  Base color in OPI's Dating a Royal from the Mod About Brights Collection, Def Defying, and Mahogany Magic.  I used a white and red glitter striper for the designs.  

Boy, was that a great game to watch!  But that halftime show though..... KILLER!
