Hope Nails

Hi everyone!
Here is my design of the day! I've been trying out some lettering nail art, and this one turned out pretty well!




China Glaze Something Sweet, China Glaze High Hopes

I think the message of hope is important, because without it, its very hard to be happy. I just picked the colors at random for this. The lettering is really easy, here are the steps...


1)Paint your base color and let dry

2)Apply big dots in the outline of the letter, leaving some space in between each dot

3)Connect the bigger dots with smaller dots, causing a bubbly effect!


I know those steps might sound a bit confusing, but please feel free to leave comments and questions and I will be happy to answer any question you ask! Also, please follow!

Soft and Girly nail design

Hi everyone!
Today I am posting a soft and feminine design that still has a little wild side to it! :)


China Glaze Something Sweet
This color is too perfect. Does anyone ever realize that soft pinks make your hands look either red or really weirdly colored? For this one, at least on my skin tone, it didn't! Consider buying this if you are looking for a soft pink!


This is a super simple nail design to do! It barely takes any time. All you have to do is apply a small amount of nail glue onto the spot where you are putting the rhinestone. Then pick up the rhinestone with a toothpick. (Its best to coat the top of the toothpick with a clear nail polish, that way the rhinestone will easily stick to it) Place a different colored rhinestone curving around the bottom of your nail as you can see in the picture. Do this to as many nails as you would like! You can do it on every other nail, only one, whatever you want to do!

Please comment me with suggestions or just what you think of the design or blog! Thanks so much for reading :)

Criss Cross Nail Art

Hi everyone!
Today I am going to go through the steps of a super simple nail design. Anyone can do it and it barely takes any time!



To begin with, make sure you have three different colors. It can be any colors you want, so the possibilities are endless! I used Sally Hansen Going Green, China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, and Sally Hansen Blue it. (In that order)



Sally Hansen Going Green

For the first step, just paint your nails the color you want as the base. Apply as many coats as you need, but let each coat dry before you add the next.


Next, apply another color and sweep the brush diagonally across the nail. Apply two coats for this, just to make sure the polish doesn't look streaky. (You can stop here if you want, but if you want it to be more intricate, go on to the next step)




Now, take the last of your three colors and sweep it diagonally across your nail from the opposite direction. Wasn't that easy?

China Glaze Avalanche

Hi everyone!

I've been wanting to post a swatch of this color for awhile, so here it is!




China Glaze Avalanche

This color is absolutley AMAZING. It has a really cool metallic finish to it that I just love. It almost has a mirror-like quality. This is from the China Glaze Ski Collection, which is one of my favorites :D

China Glaze Happy Go Lucky w/ KleanColor 24 Karat

Hi everyone!
Here is a nail polish glitter combination that I really liked!




KleanColor 24 Karat over China Glaze Happy Go Lucky

I really like this combination! For some reason it reminds me of birthday parties! :) The glitter in person is a little bit more noticible and looks really cool in the sunlight.


Just thought I would make a quick post on this! Please comment, send requests and follow!

Pure Ice Rio

Hi everyone!
I just wanted to do a quick swatch!





Pure Ice Rio

This is a really interesting color! It looks nothing like the color in the bottle (Which was dissapointing) but it is still really cool! It has this intense blue shimmer that I tried to catch in the picture. The only issue I have with this color is that I think this is 6 coats, and it is STILL very sheer. Not sure whats with the formula on this one. Other Pure Ice nails polishes aren't this way. Now that they sell Pure Ice nail polish at Walgreens I plan on getting alot more :)

China Glaze Heli-Yum w/ Konad m57

Hi everyone!
I just wanted to post a quick swatch and design of China Glaze Heli-Yum and Konad Image Plate m57



China Glaze Heli-Yum
This color is AMAZING! It is hard to explain, its like a neon dark pink. The formula is really good, I only used one coat for this! I absolutley love Konad plate m57, I use it all the time. I love animal print designs, so that is definetly part of it :)

Please comment and follow and send requests for swatches and designs!

KleanColor Holo Blue

Hi everyone!
I just wanted to do a quick swatch on a recent holographic color I recently purchased.



KleanColor Holo Blue over OPI No Room for the Blues
The holo itself was WAY too shear to use just by itself, its more of a holo topcoat. I used one of my favorite nail polish colors under it, OPI No Room for the Blues from the Bright Pair collection. I wouldn't really consider this a true holo when you compare it to some of the China Glaze OMG colors. It still has somewhat of a holo look to it, enlarge the pic to see what I mean!

Okay, Please comment and follow! I love hearing from everyone, and also please send me requests for nail designs or swatches! I would be happy to do any requests :)

Recent Konad Designs

Hi Everyone!
Here are just some recent designs I have done, hope you like it :)


KleanColor Pink Lady
I absolutley LOVE this color, its awesome. I really like this KleanColor brand that I found in an outlet not too long ago. All of the colors have a really unique quality to them, and EVERY single color I got (About 10) I have never seen or used a color exactly the same. For this color, Pink Lady, it is a neon pink, but its not one of those over-the-top bright pinks like Flirty Fuchsia or Punchy Pink from the Essie Neon collection. (Even though I love both of those colors ). This color has a silver shimmer in it, as you can see in the bottle. For the design I used image plate m57, one of my favorite Konad plates!


Sally Hansen Blue Me Away! and KleanColor Bikini Green
Sorry for the messy manicure, but I loved this design too much not to post it :) I got an inspiration to do a multi-colored base for a full nail Konad design, and it worked! I used KleanColor Bikini Green as the main base color, and added random streaks of Sally Hansen Blue Me Away! to make a really cool multi-colored look! For the Konad design, its an image plate I have used countless amounts of times on this website- m63. Try this on you own and tell me what colors and designs you used!

Okay everyone, please comment and follow! I have been noticing the huge amount of different countries visiting the site from the flag counter, and every time I see it, it truly makes my day! I have now added the google translator at the top so more people can read the blog! Please keep visiting, as many more nail designs are to come!

Wet n' Wild Craze- Jade w/ design

Hi everyone!
I thought I would try to post a few different green polishes with design today for tomarrows holiday... St. Patricks day!



Wet n' Wild Jade
I have posted this color before but I thought I would take some new pictures of it in different lighting and add a design to it!


Please ignore the smudge on the pinkie nail! I used Konad image plate m9 and did 2 rows of the flower design! It came out a little messy but I still thought it was pretty cool :)

Sinful Colors- San francisco w/ rhinestone design

Hi everyone!
Since tomarrow is St. Patricks Day, I thought I would throw in a green manicure! This is one of my favorite green nail polishes :)



Sinful Colors San Francisco
This nail polish is awesome! I think I have gone through about 4 bottles of it. The only problems with it is VERY sheer and it takes a while to dry.


Here is a simple design I did with the color that is super easy to do! It is definetly fitting for St. Patricks day also :)
I have been working on responding to comments, sorry it has been taking me so long! Please be patient :)

Girly Nail Designs

Hi everyone!
Today I am going to be posting some feminine and girly nail designs!


China Glaze High Hopes
I really like how this one turned out! I used the argyle print from image plate m60. The color that I used, High Hopes, is a little bit more bright and flashy then this picture shows.


China Glaze Light as Air
First off, let me say this is an AWESOME color! I've used it so many times since I got it a few months ago. Sorry for the slightly crooked purses, I didn't realize untill I took the picture. For the Konad design I used m16, which is one of my favorite image plates! The designs are really creative!

Wet n' Wild Red Red
Once again, this design got a little messed up, but I thought it was still worthy to post. I used Konad m59 for this one, another one of my favorite image plates! I love this red, I have probably overused it on here, so I'll try to use some different reds! :)
I thought it would be fun for some posts to have a certain theme, so I have been doing posts like the fruit designs (which I loved doing), the spring designs, and now these girly designs! Please comment and tell me which themes you would like me to do next, because I would love to hear what you guys think! Also please follow! My goal is to try to get to 100 followers by my birthday, which is June 2nd! So please, please, please follow!
