Pallet Cleanser

As I nice little pallet cleanser after all those heart and sugar manicures, I give you skulls.

Lets be honest I will use any excuse to do skulls, but Nail Art Ideas Linkup provided a nice one.

The polishes I used were China Glaze Liquid Leather, Flying Dragon, Finger Paints Movie In The Park, and Konad Special Black.  The stamping was done with Cheeky CH49.

I love the look of this, but I hated the staying power. . . or lack there of.  It lasted two days before it started chipping.  I don't know what it is with some neon polishes, but they chip like crazy on me and FD is a perfect example of that.

Well, I hope you liked this.  See you soon!

You Nail'd it as My Valentine!

My last "Valentine" manicure of the year.  Yep, it is Valentines and my excuse to let out the girly nail art designs is almost over.  Who am I kidding, I'll do heart, rose, candy designs when ever I want. . . if  I want to. . .

This is a common design and I thought I would try my hand at it.  I used China Glaze Pelican Gray, Konad Special Red, and Black.  The stamp designs are Bundle Monster BM-H16 and BM-405.  I also used a loose glitter heart that I bought at my once existent local nail art supply store.

I hope you all have a nice Valentine's Day.  I hope it is whatever you want it to be.

Black Hearts

When one is tired, one should not try and blog.  But, when one wants to make sure one's Valentine Nail Art is published before/on Valentine's Day, one must blog when one is tired.  I blame the two cups of black tea I drank to help the massive headache I woke up with.  You know, really high energy leads to really low energy.

So, this design is for the Nail Art Idea Linkup, which the prompt is Hearts.  I realized, after the fact, that I have done something similar to this. . . twice.  I guess that is why red and black is such a classic combination. . .

The colors used were China Glaze Hey Sailor, Liquid Leather, Julep Beatrix, and Konad Special Black.  I used the Winstonia W102 plate for the hearts.

I really love ombré nails with a pattern stamped over it.  It is easy and always impressive.

I don't know if you can tell it the pictures, but I can tell while I am typing how long my nails have gotten.  I am using multi-vitamins and it is doing wonders for my nails!  I wonder how long the length will last. . .

Well, I hope you like the design!
