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!!

Dry Brush Nail Art

Base color in China Glaze's Pinking Out the Window from the Road Trip Collection.  I used the dry brush technique with Boho Blues (which looks more purple on this colors) and OPI's Radiance from the Designer Series Collection.  A very springy design to match this wonderful weather! :)

Negative Space

Base colors in OPI's Alpine Snow and Black Onyx both from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used a Konad stamping plate and black Konad stamping polish for the design.  I then outlined the design with a black striper.  Simple and effective!

Hoping for Spring: Part 2!

Base color in OPI's Suzi Shops and Island Hops from the Hawaii Collection.  I used Love.Angel.Music.Baby from the Gwen Stefani Collection for the gold dots on each nail.
The flowers were done in pastel acrylic paints.

This is the time of year where I am SO sick of winter (all winter usually...) and I just can't wait for that warm weather to come!  I'm hoping spring is just around the corner!
