Happy Thanksgiving, Pilgrims.

Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection. Using red, orange, and yellow Konad stamping polish, I stamped fall leaves using a Bundle Monster Holiday plate. 
Then, using China Glaze's Mahogany Magic from the Hunger Games Collection, I stamped a turkey.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Roll in ze Hauge!

Base color in OPI's A Roll in the Hauge from the Holland Collection.  This was then French tipped using the Konad French tip plate and white Konad stamping polish.
Using a sponge, I did a gradient of Gettin' Miss Piggy With It from the Muppets Collection.  This is a little fall inspired French mani for Thanksgiving!  :)

Ombre Cloud Mani!

Starting from the right (lightest to darkest) I have OPI's What's With the Catitude? from the Shrek Collection.  Next was Just Groovy from the Psychedelic Summer Collection
The middle color in the cloud mani feature nails is Ogre-the-Top Blue also from the Shrek Collection.
The last color is Dating a Royal from the Mod About Brights Collection.

Every once in a while, I will see a design on Pinterest that I want to recreate.  I will take a snapshot of that design and either try to do it myself, or put my own spin on the design.  This was originally done in a gray to black ombre, but I love how it turned out in blue!


Connecting the Dots with Neons!

Base color in Chick Nail Polish's Baby Cakes then sponged with China Glaze's Sun of a Peach and Bottoms Up from the Sunsational Summer Collection.
This was topped off with two coats of Lynnderella's Connect the Dots.  Enjoy this bright and fun neon design!

Butterfly Wings!

Base color in China Glaze's Too Yacht to Handle from the Sunsational Summer Collection.  This was then sponged with OPI's Which is Witch? from the Oz the Great and Powerful Collection
Butterfly wings painted with black acrylic paints.

With Love for the Holidays

Base color in China Glaze's With Love from their Holiday Collection.  The design was done with white acrylic paints.
This was inspired by a Pinterest pin that my friend showed me.  She wants it done on her nails so I figured I'd give it a shot! :)

Catching Fire and The Capital

The Capital!
The Uprising!!!
Base colors in OPI's Pink Friday and Did It On 'Em from the Nicki Minaj Collection and GR8 Gray Owl from Chick Nail Polish.  This was then stamped with white Konad stamping polish and the European Romance plate by Cheeky.  Other nails were topped with pink and green pearl rhinestones and leaf.
Base color in OPI's Black Onyx from the Tuxedo Collection.  This was then coated in OPI's Matte top coat.  After painting a white paint, I made flames with a red glitter, orange, and gold glitter stripers. 

May the odds be ever in your favor....

Gettin' It With Matte

Base color in OPI's Black Onyx and Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  This was then stamped with a plate (I now can't remember which one; I did these Tuesday!) with white Konad stamping polish!
This was all topped off with OPI's Matte Top Coat.  Kind of reminds me of a chalk board design!  Hope you enjoy this design (even with the little smear on the fore finger)!!

Frostbite!

Base color in China Glaze's Frostbite from the Winter/Holiday Collection.  This was then taped off with striping tape and sponged with OPI's What's With the Catitude? from the Shrek Collection.  The centers where the tape crossed I placed a glitter.  :D  Enjoy!

Disney Princess Nails: Cinderella

For these nails I decided to take a page from CutePolish's nail tutorials and coincidentally my favorite Disney Princess of all time is Cinderella!  (She did her tutorial with Cinderella tattoos)  I finally found some temporary tattoos from the Target and they were perfect!  All you need to do is paint your nails white (or a light color), let them completely dry, and stick them on with water!  Super simple.
Base colors in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection and Can't Find My Czechbook from the Euro Centrale Collection.  This was then topped with some temporary tattoos using ones in the theme of Cinderella!!
This was completely topped off with Northern Lights to add a little glitter! :)  Enjoy!

Jack Skellington!

This is super, super late in the game but I had these all ready for Halloween.  I love the movie Nightmare Before Christmas and always wanted to do something like these.  Finally!
Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  The stripes were stamped from a Cheeky plate and black Konad stamping polish.  Face was painted with black acrylics!  Hope you like!  Sorry it's so late!
