Happy Birthday 'Merica

Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used a red striper for the vertical stripes. 
Toward the cuticle, I sponged on Blue My Mind from the Brights by the Dozen Collection.  Over that, I used cobalt blue craft glitter and sponged that over the blue.  Just a little play on the flag and I hope you enjoy!

Happy 4th of July everyone!

Simple Math

Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  The feature nail was done in Cement the Deal from the Fifty Shades of Grey Collection.
I used white acrylic paint for the feature nail's design.

This was inspired by the Manchester Orchestra Simple Math album cover.  I will be seeing them at Summerfest on the 1st and am WAY too excited for it. Can you tell?

Pen & Pink

Base color in OPI's Coronation from the Designer Series Collection.  To top it off, I used Pen & Pink from the Color Paints Collection.

On the feature nail, I used the Cheeky Tropical Holiday jumbo plate and Turquoise Aesthetic for the waves, and Pen & Pink for the hibiscus.

I did this design randomly for a friend the other day and the more we looked at it, the more we loved it.  I hope you do too!

Starbucks Inspiration

Base colors in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection, and Sally Hansen's I-Rush Luck.
I used a Bundle Monster plate for the gradient on the white nails.  For the designs on the green nails, I used a tiny brush and white acrylic paint.  

Now, I think it's time for me to get some coffee! :)

Matte Flower Power

Base color in OPI's Black Onyx from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used white acrylic paint to make the flowers initially.
I then dotted five small black dots toward the middle of the flowers.  Then, using China Glaze's Highlight of my Summer, That's Shore Bright, and Too Yacht to Handle from the Sunsational Summer Collection, I dotted the center of each flower.  All was topped off with a matte top coat.

Enjoy!

Beachy Color Paints

Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used the Cheeky Tropical Holiday jumbo plate for the stamps.  I layered the leaves with Pen & Pink, Turquoise Aesthetic, and Primarily Yellow all from the Color Paints Collection.  I used black Konad stamping polish for the accent nail.

I am trying to do as many things as possible with these Color Paints; they are just too much fun!! :)

Color Paints Water Marble!

I used OPI's Silver Canvas from the Color Paints Collection as the base for this design.  For the water marble, I used Landscape Artist, Turquoise Aesthetic, Purple Perspective, and Pen & Pink.
Surprisingly, these colors water marbled perfectly and easily.  I have never worked with better colors to do this with.  Plus, this nail design is aces!  Hope you enjoy this summery water marble! :)
