I haven’t done Pokemon nails in a while so why not now that I’m waiting on Pokemon Sun! I started with Rowlet because I KNOW for sure that this is my starter. I love all the starters but I’m partial to owls. I mean just look at how cute he is!!
So I had to do some Rowlet Christmas nail art to hold me over. I freakin love them (and this gif ugh)! But they were super detailed so I didn’t even bother with my other hand.
The green polish is Sinful Colors San Francisco and everything else is acrylic paint. I kind of want to do the rest of the Sun & Moon starters now. Maybe Popplio building snowmen (or snow-Pokemon!), Litten in a stocking?

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. 😛
Happy Holo-ween!!! Probably my last Halloween mani, but it’s fall so expect pumpkins and fall stuff until the week before Christmas. I did some lazer bats (the twelve-tones video totally comes to mind here) with a side gradient in pastels and some glow in the dark polish!! I can’t do a bunch of Halloween mani’s with out at least one having glow polish. I suck at photographing them though so I used a black light.
Aren’t their little lazery eyes so cute?! :3
I wish that the pink and purple stood out more but I just couldn’t get that contrast with out picking a darker purple or pink and I didn’t want to stray too far from the pastel feel. My glitter was a little bright on my gradient too but the glow polish created a beautiful jelly sandwich.
The holographic glitter on my thumb and ring finger is Finger Paints Colorful Collage, my pastels are Sinful colors – Sugar Rush (blue) and Sweet Tooth (purple), Color Show – Chiffon Chic (pink), and Sally Hansen – Mint Sorbet (green). I also used a small kid size bottle of some no name polish that is a sparse holo-glitter with one coat of China glaze Ghoulish Glow on top. The bats are acrylic paint and I put some small glitter specks for lazer eyes. 😀
I saw these really cute voodoo doll nails on Reddit last year and I didn’t get a chance to try them out. This year I made sure I did them and I’m so happy with how they turned out! They’re my creepy little buddies, I want to snuggle them.
The polish I used for this design was mostly my base color and the hearts on the little dolls and the silver for the pins.
The colors I used are finger paints Sketchy, with one coat of Elf Fairy Dust and one coat of Salon Perfect Champagne Toast for my base color.
The hearts were done with Finger Paints-Pink Perspective, Klean Color-Sea Ice, and Sinful Colors-Cloud 9, Dream On, and Heavy Metal for the pins. Everything else is acrylic paint. They were ridiculously easy to do, I feel like I did them pretty well on my other hand even. I wish I had little heart jewels but I think the silver pins really stand out without them. I cant believe I waited this long to do them though. I want them to stay on forever.
I’ve seen a lot of brain nail art the past couple of weeks and I really wanted to try them! So I did a light pink to dark shimmery pink gradient and then tried to mimic the pattern. They aren’t perfect but I’m so happy with how they turned out!!
I kind of just winged it and it was easy enough that I did my other hand (not photographed as I broke it shortly before I did this design, so it’s in time out)!
I used WetnWild-Tickled Pink, Milani-Hot Pink, and Sinful colors-Got A Blush On You. The black is acrylic paint.
