Moon Dust

Moon Nail Art

Another abstract look. For this design, I combined the salt technique with some water spotting, then of course added some studs.  The salt reminded me of craters on the moon, and then the polish I used for the spotting is called "Shoot the Moon," so these became moon themed nails.

Violet Vapor

Purple Watercolor Nails

These kind of look like galaxy nails, but I was trying a new watercolor technique.  The final effect reminds me a little of the plastic bag technique, but I like this one better.  I chose purple and white polish over the black base color because I wanted a lot of light and dark contrast.

X-Men

X-Men Nail Art

There's no tutorial for this, but I just wanted to share my X-Men nails with you all!  I'm a HUGE Marvel comics fan, so I wanted to do a comic book themed nail.  For these, I just painted a white base color, then used black acrylic paint for the "sketches" of Wolverine, Cyclops, and Storm.

Mistress of Evil

Maleficent Nail Art

FINALLY getting back to my Disney series.  I combined two polishes for this look, so there will be one less mani than planned, but they both were for Maleficent and looked great together.

Tropically Teal

Tropically Teal Nail Art

Even though it is far from summer, this weather has been pretty summery, and it is making me want to go to Hawaii.  With that in mind, I decided to do something tropical with some quick stamping, and the added a stud and some glitter.

My Beating Heart

Beating Heart Nail Art

I saw these flashing nail art elements, and thought I should try it out.  I went with the heart shaped sticker and some +Bundle Monster stamping for the letters.  I kept the design simple to let the heart shine (literally and figuratively).

Happy St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day Nail Art

Hope you are all wearing green today!  I'm sporting these green nails, but that's about as festive as my day is going to get.  No green beer in my future, but I did eat corned beef and cabbage the other night.

Sea Glass Serenity

Sea Glass Serenity Nail Art

Foil is a quick and simple way to add some pizzazz to a mani. Inspired by sea glass, I chose a mint/aqua base color, added some silver foil, and topped it off with a matte top coat.

A-Town Down

Atlanta Braves Nail Art

Peace up, A-Town down. :)  I'm headed to Atlanta today, so I thought these nails would be appropriate.  I'll be representing the Atlanta Braves on my digits while I'm out there.

Strawberry Delight

Strawberry Nail Art

Just something quick and sweet.  A dotticure and some fimo strawberries.  The dots didn't quite turned out as I pictured in my head, but it probably only bothers me since only I know what's going on in there.

Cheshire Cat

Cheshire Cat Nails

"If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there." -Cheshire Cat.  That's kind of how I feel right now in my job hunt, as I try to find a career and move onto the next chapter of my life.  I'm definitely Alice standing at the crossroads, trying to decide which way to go.

Kiss Me

Lipstick Nail Art

Just something quick and simple today.  Any nail art beginner can create this fun flirty look.  One of the many things I love about nail charms is that they really upgrade a look and all you have to do is glue them on.

Circle of Life

Circle of Life Nail Art

"Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba!"  If you've every wondered what that means, it translates to "Here comes a lion, Father."  I Googled.  "Circle of Life" is my favorite song in the Broadway version of The Lion King, so when I saw this stamping plate, I knew I had to do a "Circle of Life" scene.  This is yet another unofficial Disney mani.  Maybe I should start a second series.

Fire Engine Fab

Fire Engine Fab Nail Art

This look is inspired by a design by @jini_unistella, but I changed it up a little using different colors and different studs.  This past weekend I went to my friend's bachelorette party, which had a fireman theme since the bride-to-be is marrying a fireman.  We all wore black with red accents, so I did red nails of course.  Yesterday's post is what my other hand looked like.

Posh Punk

Red Plaid Nail Art

Although this mani may look tricky, it is actually quite simple.  Nail tape is used to create the negative spacing, the plaid and tweed nails are stamped, and studs are added for a more edgy appeal.
