Black Friday

Black Negative Space Nail Art

In honor of Black Friday, I decided to do a black and negative space mani.  This is another rare occasion where both of my hands are painted in the same theme, and I think the first time I'm posting about two hands in one post.

Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate Nail Art

Cold weather always makes me want to drink hot chocolate.  In fact, I just made some right now.  This bright red mug over a snowy white background, is perfect for the holiday season.

Sweater Weather

Sweater Nail Art

It's that time of year!  Time to break out the holiday sweaters.  Today, I went with my family to cut down our Christmas tree, and it was definitely sweater weather.  It was cold, rainy, but also cheerful considering the activity.  I painted these nails using +Bundle Monster nail stamps to create a sweatery feel.

Hunger Games Mockingjay Nail Art

Fire burns brighter in the darkness.  Today is the big day...The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 comes out!  I can't wait to see it!!!  In celebration, I painted some Mockingjay nails with the mockingjay surrounded by fire.

BRFS Fall Fashion - Part 2

Banana Republic Nail Art

Here is part 2, otherwise known as my right hand, of the design.  Again, these nails are inspired by current women's apparel items at the Banana Republic Factory Store.  I rarely do matching hands anymore, so it was fun to have both hands in the same theme for a few days.  Maybe it didn't bother me so much since each nail is so different.

BRFS Fall Fashion - Part 1

Fall Fashion Nail Art

This is one of the rare occasions where I painted both hands with the same theme, so this will be a two part post today and tomorrow.  I based the designs off of current women's apparel at the Banana Republic Factory Store, for a fall fashion look.

We're All Mad Here

Mad Hatter Nail Art

I just bought this new polish from Hot Topic the other day, and it immediately made me think of the Mad Hatter.  The shape of the nail polish bottles is what initially caught my eye...they are skulls!  I used acrylic paint to create a mad tea party look.

The Quick Brown Fox

Fox Nail Art

Playing around with the new +Bundle Monster nail plates again!  I'm in love with this wood grain and definitely need to buy more brown nail polishes so I can try different looks!  Fox nails have been on my to-do list for a while, and since it was a challenge for #31Nails2014, I decided now was the perfect time.

I'm A Barbie Girl

Barbie Nail Art

Growing up, I played with a lot of toys targeted towards boys like My Buddy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but I also LOVED Barbies.  I was going to paint the Barbie logo on one of the nails, but it wasn't turning out, so I covered the nail with rhinestones.

Fine China

Fine China Nail Art

These nails are very simple, but elegant like fine China.  The colors and patterns are reminiscent of the classic blue and white China dishes, and the best part?  They're decals!

Neutral Nocturnal

Owl Nail Art

Owls are one of the coolest birds of prey in my opinion.  They have amazing hearing and night vision, and can turn their heads almost completely around.  I did a neutral look with this mani for fall, and to match the owl colorings.

Bad Badtz Maru

Bad Badtz Maru Nail Art

Badtz-Maru is a penguin with spiky hair, from the Sanrio line of characters.  His most famous expression is of pulling one eye down and sticking out his tongue, a gesture equivalent to blowing a raspberry (as seen on my nails).  Water transfer decals like these are perfect for those who love nail art, but don't want to deal with the detailed painting.

Skulls and Spikes

Skulls and Spikes Nail Art

Negative space + gold studs + skull charm = awesome!  This is a really quick look to create since it only requires one color of polish and stud/charm placement.
