Hotdog Nails!

Base colors in OPI's Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh? from the Holland Collection, and Love Athletes in Cleats from the Fashion Plate Collection.
I used A-Piers to be Tan from the San Francisco Collection for the hotdog and outlined it with My Vampire is Buff from the Euro Centrale Collection.  The mustard was done with a yellow and gold glitter striper.

I did this design because I always seem to do baseballs or logos for baseball games and special baseball events.  So, figured I'd switch it up!

Happy Opening Days all around the country!! :)

That Darn Glitter Polish

So you may have seen my cute little bunny ear nails from the other day.  Well, I used Liquid Sand on the fore finger and if you know about trying to take glitter off, this is worse!  So how can you easily take this off without rubbing through your cotton pad?? SIMPLE!
I found this after watching Cutepolish's video about it, and I thought it was too good to be true.  I was so wrong.  I toughed it out and went into Wal-Mart :( but it was $3!  
When you open it, it looks like this.  A pink gelatinous substance reminding me of the goo in Ghostbusters. Ha!    
You just unscrew the lid, and dip the finger that is covered with that stubborn glitter nail polish in the goo.
Make sure you have a timer ready because you have to wait 4 minutes.  Now I know what you're thinking; that's a long time to wait!  But if you think about how hard it is to using regular remover and how MANY pads you go through, this is totally worth it....
...Because all you do next is wipe it off with a paper towel.  BOOM.  Clean and ready for your next nail art adventure.

I am completely excited to find out about this product because I've kind of just stopped using glitter polish altogether because of how hard it is to take off.  This is a life saver, and I will be slowly getting back into the glitz and glamour of glitters!! :)

Bunny Ears!

Base colors in OPI's A Grape Fit from the Brights Pair Collection, It's Frosty Outside from the Mariah Carey Holiday Collection, and Essie's In the Cab-Ana.  
I used Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection for the polka dots and a white striper for the bunny ears.  The ear insides are Suzi Shops and Island Hops from the Hawaii Collection.

I know this is a little late but I hope you had a wonderful Easter!

Easter Bunnies!

From left to right, my base colors include Chick Nail Polish's All a Twitter, OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection, Baby Cakes, and Doll Face.
The colorful nails were stamped with a Bundle Monster stamping plate using white Konad stamping polish.  The white nail was painted on using acrylic paints to make a bunny face!

Happy early Easter!! :)

First Day of Spring!

I used OPI's Rumple's Wiggin' from the Shrek Collection as the base color.  Using a series of different sized blue dots, I dotted on the hydrangea's petals.  This used Zoya's Robyn and Frida, and OPI's What's With the Cattitude? and No Room for the Blues from the Brights Pair Collection.  The leaves were done with Green-wich Village from the Mod About Brights Collection and Jade is the New Black from the Hong Kong Collection.

This is my FAVORITE time of the year, so happy spring everyone!! :)

Shattered Tribal

I finally got some new stamping plates and wanted to try them out.  I got super inspired by this Bundle Monster plate and I think the design turned out flawlessly!!
Base colors in OPI's I Just Can' Cope-acabana from the Brazil Collection and Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I applied some top coat to my rubber stamper, let that dry, and used black Konad stamping polish to put the design on the rubber stamper.  I filled in the triangles with the yellow and Cement the Deal from the Fifty Shades of Grey Collection, let that dry, and applied a second layer of top coat.  As soon as that was completely dry, I peeled the sticker off and placed it on my white nail.  Beautiful and easy!!
