Belated Valentine's Day Nails

Base color in OPI's Getting Nadi on My Honeymoon from the Fiji Collection.  I used a Bundle Monster hearts stamp and the reverse stamping method to fill in the hearts design.  To fill them in, I used Two-Timing the Zones, Polly Want a Lacquer?, and Suzi Without a Paddle.

I was in Washington DC for Valentine's Day this year and wasn't able to get this up in time.  It's been a busy week!  Hope you enjoy this late post :)

Valentine Pusheen Nails

Base colors in OPI's Cement the Deal from the Fifty Shades of Grey Collection and Kiss Me I'm Brazilian from the Brazil Collection.  I used a Bundle Monster XL plate for the hearts on three of the nails along with their stamping polish.  Then, with a tiny brush and acrylic paint, I painted on Pusheen on the middle finger.  Isn't he just so cute?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hogwarts in the Snow

Base color in Zoya's Indigo.  I then used a Hehe plate from the Harry Potter Collection for the swirly design in the background with white stamping polish.  I used OPI's Indigo Motif from the Color Paints Collection to add another layer of blue for dimension.  Then, using another Hehe plate, I stamped on the Hogwarts castle in white stamping polish across two fingers.  Everything was topped off with Northern Lights, because... holographic.  Hope you enjoy this winter Harry Potter design!

My Vampire is Buff - Flower Mani

Base color in OPI's My Vampire is Buff from the Euro Centrale Collection.  I used a Bundle Monster XL plate along with their white stamping polish to create the design.  I used I Believe in Manicures from the Breakfast at Tiffany's Collection to fill in the design.

It's about 55 degrees here in Illinois... in February... so I was inspired with this warm weather.  Enjoy! :)

Hoping for Spring Part 3

Base color in Julep's Alyssa.  I used a piece of tape to cover off a part of the nail on two fingers to leave blank.  I then used OPI's I'm Gown for Anything from the Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection and Cement the Deal from the Fifty Shades of Grey Collection for the flowers.  I used a silver stamping polish for the centers and Zoya's Tracie for the leaves.

This weekend we had some of the best weather ever for January (sunny and 60.. what!?) so I feel teased and want springtime!  How about you?

Hogwarts House Nails

I recently acquired some Harry Potter Collection Hehe Plates (Aiyoohehe) which are FANTASTIC! I can honestly think of a design to do for each image on each plate, which is quite a lot, but my love for Harry Potter runs deep. :)  The first couple of designs I did from this collection of plates were all of the Hogwarts House crests.

Ravenclaw
Slytherin
Gryffindor
Hufflepuff (my house!!)

I hope you  enjoy these designs and there will definitely be more Harry Potter nails to come!

Happy New Year 2017

Base in Bundle Monster's Hella Holo powder with black gel base.  I then used Bundle Monster's Christmas + NYE plates for the design stamped on.

I hope everyone had a great New Year's celebration!  Let's all hope that 2017 is a better year than last! :)
