I KNOW!! Omg rabbit that’s a lot of images. But look at how different each picture is, I mean I needed to capture the amazingness of ILNP My Private Rainbow jelly sandwiched over Pure Ice Satin Ribbon and Wetn’wild Hallucinate.
Not to mention I did BOTH hands and the other one actually turned out pretty decently!! My topcoat was also so shiny today (second day of wear too lol) that my camera kept focusing on the shine instead of the design.
I was just really feeling me some kind of fall mushroom scene so I did some random green blobbies with my acrylic paint and went from there. I don’t know what the green grassy things are but they totally fit right? I added light green in places to mimic how moss kind of looks and some brown hairs.
I feel like this is probably the easiest detailed design I’ve ever done! You should totally do mushrooms on your nails.
The fox says HOLO!!! hahaha, sorry I had to do it. I LOVE how cute these turned out!! I found my design on google after searching Fox Nails and found The Polished Life’s beautiful fox and leaves design.
I didn’t want to do leaves because I am lazy and doing a million other things for the holidays! (I’ll post pics of the finished products later this month or next month) I opted for some fresh holographic dew, uh yea. haha well, we’ll call it that anyway. I even included an out of focus shot of China Glaze’s Fairy Dust so you could see how holo it is!
The other color I used was also china glaze, Nice Caboose. The first picture (and second picture of my other hand!) is in fluorescent lighting so it looks a bit more maroon than purple but outside it’s almost a different shade, a very plum wine color. I LOVE it!
I used Wet-n-Wilds 2% Milk (about 3 coats, jeeze). After I had that down I used a makeup sponge and dotted polish onto the makeup sponge randomly using Sinful Color’s Ruby Ruby and Sally Hansen’s Plum Luck.
I then used a bit of 2% across the top of all the dots to give it a slight gradient effect and blended the colors in with the sponge like you would any gradient. Then I took Color-Club Snowflakes and sponged it on the tips going up the gradient leaving the top half more bare.
I really love this!! The flakies are the perfect light pink over this rose plum that was created by blending Ruby Ruby and Plum Luck. In the sun they were soo shifty and it’s very hard to capture but it went green at different angles.
More Halloween nails! I think these ended up so cutee! I found a shutterstock image on google with some cute ghosties and I based my idea off of that.
First I did my glow background with 3 polish colors: Pure Ice Home Run, Sally Hansen Pool Party, and China Glaze Ghoulish Glow. I did the glow polish for the background so that when I painted over it only the ghosts would show through. I outlined them with blue and purple acrylic paints (doing their tiny eyes and mouths) then filled in the gaps between them for a random watercolor feel. If I messed up I just used a slightly wet q-tip to rub the mistake away.I love how these little dudes look so happy!! I’m stuck on cute Halloween nail art. I’m doing some Ghibli Halloween nails next!!
It’s almost OCTOBERRR!! Which means halloween only nails and also a super long break from Overwatch Nails (I’m still doing them all I promise, Zarya is hard though so ideas are REALLY WELCOME).
I love the way this turned out holy cow! Didn’t expect this level of spooky. The duo-chrome polishes ended up blending really well together.
I used black as a base then I smash marbled Sinful Colors Let Me Go, You Just Wait, and China Glaze’s No Plain Jane on my silicone mat and let them dry into nail stickers. After the spooky background was on I used some black acrylic paint to do the trees.
I was a little bored so I decided to do some clouds. I think they turned out okay for me being kind of lazy as well.
I used two colors Finger Paints Brushstroke Blush and Revlon Matte Pearl Glaze. I used acrylic paints for the clouds.
Easy to do and so hard to photograph lol. So many pictures to show you the pearl essence.
I sort of just watered down the acrylic paint really well and dabbed on blue and purple lightly leaving some spots open for the pink to show through in the clouds. Then I went back over them with some white paint to give them more shape and definition.
They are kind of growing on me, at first i was like meh nail fail. But I really love that pearl-essence of the Revlon Matte Pearl Glaze with a shiny topcoat (Out the Door as always).
If you have any requests feel free to ask! I’ll probably be doing some Overwatch nails next, Zarya I think.
All this Holo!! even my engagement ring decided to have a little flair while I was outside taking pictures, it was blingin all over the place. 😀
I used ILNP My private rainbow, Color Club’s Harp On it and I went a little crazy with my silicone mat. I cut out my half moon pieces from some Smash Marbled Stickers. I just put the polish in dots on the mat then smashed it by folding the mat over a bit like a small Rorschach image, it will dry in a sheet on the silicone mat.
I LOVE this silicone mat. I cant stop messing around with it. I made them using WernWild’s Lavender Creme, Finger Paints Brushstroke Blush, Sinful Colors Rise and Shine, and CC Harp On It.
I did this beautiful gradient with Finger Paints Blushstroke Blush and Beverly’s Touch. I just realized those are both B named polish colors and roses remind me of my grandma Beulah, awe. Ok sentiment aside, I felt like I needed to brush up (hehehe) on my rose game so I put in a little practice. Which I feel like paid off! I need to practice new techniques more often.
I followed some random chart from google after searching how to paint roses. I’ll do a tutorial soon I think after some Overwatch nails which I’ve laxxed on recently due to a loss in my family and my utter inability to work on nail art or any art in general. I’ve mostly been playing a lot of Starbound and cuddling my rabbits and my Fiance to save what sanity I have left at this point. It’s working so far.
I think I’ll be doing Mercy next or maybe widow who knows! If you want to see an overwatch hero let me know and hopefully it will be before I get around to actually doing them. 😛
So those of you who don’t really play video games if you have any inkling of what Harvest moon is, this is basically the same game but better. Here’s a link to some gameplay (It’s me, I don’t always have the softest language so be warned). I decided to do the game’s logo banner image though, because lets face it that is one cute chicken.
I LOVE this game. I’m pretty much addicted. I play it so much that I had my background gradient done for like a week before I actually painted on the chicken and the fence and stuff. It’s really fun but you’ll get sucked into a loop of “let me just finish doing this one thing then I’ll sleep and save”.
I used three polish colors, Klean color Neon Aqua, Pure Ice Scream, and Rimmel London’s Mintilicious (which was basically covered by mountains so I could have done with out it). Everything else is acrylic paint. ALSO… I broke my thumbnail on my other hand so I only did one hand! lol
I have recently been a little obsessed with Steven Universe. I knew that Rebecca Sugar (this chick is amazing seriously) who did such a great job on Adventure Time created it and I love her so I’ve heard most of the SU soundtrack I just gave in and binge watched it over the course of 2 1/2 days.
I really just love pink lion. I think he’s so cute and reminds me of my fiance so I had to have him on my nails. I only used 3 polish colors for this Sinful Colors Cinderella and Sugar Rush, and ILNP My Private Rainbow. The yellow and the lion are acrylic paint.
My acrylic paint was being a butt and my topcoat kind of shrunk the paint even though it was dry. 😦 You cant tell except in these pictures though!! DAMN YOU GREAT AT FOCUSING PHONE CAMERA!
I really love all of the characters so I think that I’ll revisit SU quite a few times. Peridot is my favorite character so she’ll probably be next. We’ll see!
