Never a Dulles Moment

Base color in OPI's Never a Dulles Moment from the Washington DC Collection.  I used a white and a black striper for the off center stripes.  Very simple, but I received the most compliments on this! LOVE! :)

Wicked Herringbone

Base color in OPI's You Are So Outta Lime! from the Go Neon or Go Nude Collection.  I used white acrylic paint for the herringbone design and filled in blocks with Funky Dunky from the Shrek Collection and Zoya's Storm.

I know this design looks super Halloween-ish, but I have been watching the newest season of Once Upon A Time on Netflix and got super inspired by the wicked themes this new season focused on.  Annddddd I wanted to do a herringbone design from scratch.  Enjoy!

Last Summertime Mani


Base color in OPI's Pale to the Chief from the Washington DC Collection.  I sponged down the middle of the nail using Sailing and Nailing from the Retro Summer Collection, then lined the outer edges with a silver glitter striper.  Lastly, I used four different patterns of summer border images from Bundle Monster's Hang Loose collection.

I wore this manicure for the entire week; I just loved it!  For me, when August ends, that's the end of summer because school started right after Labor Day. Boo!  (thank goodness that's over!)  Enjoy this last summertime manicure. :)

Arizona Sunset



For the base, I used a gradient of OPI's Having a Big Head Day from the Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection, Juice Bar Hopping from the Go Neon or Go Nude Collection, and My Twin Mimmy from the Hello Kitty Collection.  For the stamp, I used a Bundle Monster plate from their Fuzzy and Ferocious (Set 2) collection, and black stamping polish.  All was topped off with Northern Lights scattered holo top coat.

This was the design I wore to visit my best friend in Arizona a bit ago (I know; late post).  I thought these blended in with the desert quite nicely!  Enjoy! :)

Rio Olympics 2016 Nails

Base color in OPI's Silver Canvas from the Color Paints Collection.  I used a sponge to create a splotchy gradient design using Primarily Yellow, Landscape Artist, and Indigo Motif.  
I used white acrylic paint to draw on a couple of my favorite sports to watch during the Olympics and the Rio logo from this year.  From top to bottom, I have swimming, gymnastics, and then beach volleyball.  I hope you are enjoying this epic year of Olympics and I definitely can't wait for the next!  Enjoy!

I'm Gown for Anything!


Base color in OPI's I'm Gown for Anything from the Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection.  I used nail vinyls to tape off the nails and sponged on a gradient of Pompeii Purple from the Classics Collection and Teal the Cows Come Home from the Brights by the Dozen Collection.  Fun and funky, right?  Enjoy!

Pokéball Nails

Base color in China Glaze's Sunday Sunday from the Avant Garden Collection.  I used a red striper, then a red glitter striper to make the tops of the balls (the tips).  I then free handed the black strips down the middle using a black striper.  After everything dried, I used Sunday Sunday to dot the middle.  

I wanted to do these nails in support of the new Pokémon Go game coming out recently.  I may not be participating in the application, but most of my friends are.  These were definitely a big hit. :)
