Bloody Murder Scene!

Base colors in OPI's Alpine Snow and Black Onyx from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used Over & Over A-Gwen from the Gwen Stefani Collection for the blood spatter.  The chalk outline guy was done with acrylic paints using the sticker technique.

Happy Halloween everyone!  :)

World Series Nails 2015

Base colors in OPI's Orange You Going to the Game? and Right Off the Bat from the Fashion Plate Collection, and Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used a Bundle Monster Plate for the baseball stitching and the city skyline along with Konad stamping polishes.  I used acrylic paint to do the logo using the plastic baggie sticker technique.

Base colors in OPI's Right Off the Bat from the Fashion Plate Collection and Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used a Pueen plate for the crowns and the Bundle Monster plate for the baseball stitching.  Again, I used white acrylic paint for the logo and used the plastic baggie sticker technique to apply it to my nail.
Although the Cardinals didn't make it to the World Series this year, we'll get 'em next year.  For now.... GO ROYALS!! :)

Toothpick Swirl Mani

Base colors in OPI's Purple Palazzo Pants and My Gondola or Yours? from the Venice Collection.  I used a toothpick to drag swirls into the design when it was still wet.  Takes a couple tries to perfect, but the result is pretty cute! Enjoy.

Pumpkin Tips Part 2

Base color in OPI's Be There in a Prosecco from the Venice Collection.  For the pumpkins, I used Is Mai Tai Crooked? from the Hawaii Collection and Deutsch You Want Me Baby? from the Germany Collection.  
The stems were done with A-Piers to be Tan from the San Francisco Collection and the little vines are done with lime green acrylic paint.  Just a cute little fall design! :)

You've Left Me in Stitches

Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used striping tape to block off the sections.  I then used Push & Pur-Pull, Juice Bar Hopping, and You're So Outta Lime! all from the Go Neon or Go Nude Collection to fill in the sections.
I took the striping tape off and used a black striper to make the stitches.  I topped it all off with a glossy top coat at first, then a matte top coat to see how it looked.  Pretty cool right?  :)

Scary Eye Mani

Base colors in OPI's Black Onyx from the Tuxedo Collection on the pinkie and pointer fingers.  I used Need Sunglasses? from the Brights by the Dozen Collection for the base of the two middle fingers.
Using  Need Sunglasses?, and Green-wich Village from the Mod About Brights Collection, I sponged on a gradient for the eyes over the yellow.  After a couple coats of the gradient, I used a black striper to outline the eyes.  I took a really tiny dotting tool and white acrylic paint to give the eyes a little glow.  Spooky, right??

Batty Tips!

Base color in OPI's A Grape Fit from the Bright Pair Collection.  I used a black striper for the bats and a super tiny dotting tool for the eyes.

October is my favorite month of the year and for good reason!  Spooky designs all month long! :)  Happy early Halloween.

Pastel Galaxies!

Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  For the base of the galaxies, I used Purple Palazzo Pants from the Venice Collection.  Sponged over that was O Suzi Mio followed by Diva of Geneva from the Swiss Collection.  I topped everything off with Snow Globetrotter from the Gwen Stefani Holiday Collection as the stars and striped on a few crosses.
This was inspired by Cutepolish's new video where she made cute little pink galaxies.  I tried my hand at it in my favorite color, purple!  Hope you enjoy this rendition! :)

Twenty One Pilots: Blurryface Nails

Base colors in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection and Over & Over A-Gwen from the Gwen Stefani Collection.  I used a mixture of Gals, Mash, and Bundle Monster plates for the designs.
I then used a circular sticker to cover up the design and painted Black Onyx over the top.

This design was inspired by the Twenty One Pilots album, Blurryface.  I've been listening to it a lot lately and absolutely got inspired by their album art!  Here's a song to get you hooked! :)
