Nail Challenge: Inspired By A Book

I was inspired by the Percy Jackson book series. Two gods inspired this look Hades and Poseidon. I made my own mixes for these two. Hades mix was a dark blue,purple,red,and black combination with purple flakes and glitter, and I added black and blue flames. Poseidons mix was a teal and blue combo with a huge wave and his trident.

Hello Kitty 3D Movie Nails

I'm a sucker for hello kitty shes always just so cute. So I was inspired by my keys, I had painted one with a hello kitty with 3D glasses on. So when I bought some new polish it reminded my of a 3D movie which was a perfect background for this nail art. I just think its so cute.

Nail Challenge: Spring

Hunger Games Inspired Nails

 I loved the movie and after seeing it I had to try to recreate them espically since I had went a week with just a plain french manicure I needed some color back in my life.

Nail Challenge: Black and White

I love the combination of black and white. I wanted to do something simple yet cute. So ofcourse I did the Chanel logo my favorite. With a gold bracelet with Chanel charms on it.

Nail Polish Collection And Storage

  I was rearranging some of my nail  polishes and thought it would be fun to share with you all my collection and storage. I'm not in love with the set up right now but hopefully in the future it will be a bit better.                        
                                   In this drawer I have 4 baskets of polish sorted by brand and color.
  These two baskets have wet n wild, Sinful Colors, and a few favorite miscellaneous polishes
                              These baskets have Mac,O.P.I,Essie, and crackle polishes
                                            This draw is just miscellaneous polish
 First Drawer- Acrylic sets,false nails, mini o.p.i, Sally Hansen salon effects strips,acrylic paint.Second Drawer -Rhinestones and beads. Third Drawer-Glitter.  Fourth Drawer- Extra Nail files,Remover Pads, Clippers,brushes,scissors.
 This brush holder I recently bought and painted it myself. The artwork is inspired by my 3 favorite nail artist Sophy Robson, Jenny Longworth, and Robin Moses. Also I wanted it to be mostly black and white kind of a good and evil theme. The front is Sophy's Love Hate Design, The sides are Robin Moses Good and Evil design, The top sides are Jenny Longworth's design from Rihanna's You Da One music video. The front was my own design.
Storage for stickers,pictures,foam sheets,plastic knife. 3 tier picture holder. Nail Design Display book. Acrylic paint storage box.

Polish Haul

I decided to stop by Walgreen's to pick up a few polishes. They had some great sales going on for wet n wild and sinful colors. Wet n wild new mega last polishes were buy 2 get 1 free. I picked On A Trip, I Need A Refresh-Mint, and Candy-licious. All of them are really great colors for spring. But I do really hate the brushes their just to big for the top of the bottle and pick up to much polish I find myself having to scrap it off on the side of the bottle even when there looks like there is hardly any on the brush its so annoying. Sinful Colors polishes were all 50% off. I was surprised to see that even the ones in the new collections were on sale to most time its just there main line. So when I saw 4 new collections on sale I was in heaven. I picked up Cinderella and Green Ocean which I was so excite to see they had out already.
                                             On A Trip, Candy-licious, I Need A Refresh-mint
                                        Cinderella really beautiful light blue with purple reflects
                  Green Ocean has amazing green,blue,and purple flakes and glitter. I'm so in love with it.

Nail Art Challenge : Tribal

Originally I had planned to just do a v gap style manicure but some how it turn into more of a tribal style pattern. I don't really like tribal print designs so I figured this is probably the only one you will see on my nails for along time. I really love white and black lately. I just can't get enough of the combo and do really like it for a more edgy tribal look.

Topshop Sale

I went with my sister to go see a movie and we figured while we were out we would do a little shopping. We figured a lot of stores are getting ready for spring, really any reason to go to Topshop sounds great to me. I walked in went right for the jewelry as usual. I swear Topshop has the most amazing jewelry. I was so excited to see there was a huge sale going on. There was a whole rack of jewelry for $3. I bought two rings and might go back for more. One is a black ladybug with blue spots the other is an amazing rock like ring that's purple and green it kinda changes color in the light it's so gorgeous, and it was the last one left! Each were originally $30 but I got them both for $3 from $60 to $6 amazing!!!

Harry Potter Nails Redone

I'm so happy I finally redid this nail art. Some of the detail aren't exactly the same but it's still pretty awesome.
Thumb: Hogwarts Banner  Pointer: Hedwig and Hogwarts letter. Middle: HP initials, floating candles,snitch,and platform 9 3/4 sign, Ring: Hufflepuff colors, time turner,and wand. Pinky: Harry's trunk,broom,cauldron with a potion brewing, and a stack of school books.
 Pinky: Deathly Hallows symbol,Voldemort's snake Nagini's tail. Ring: Ravenclaw colors Tom Riddle's Diary being stabbed by the basilisk fang,and Nagini's body slides through all fingers tell the thumb and has Slytherin house colors on it. Middle: Dementor freezing some flowers. Pointer: Dumbledore's Army coin, Marauders map, and more coins. Thumb: Sorting Hat, Gryffindor sword, Nagini's head

Tangled Inspired Nail Art

I love the movie tangled but I really wanted to do this nail design because of the nail stickers I got that had the Disney princesses on them. I started making the nails and was going to add the princess at the end, but the sticker ended up to be to small. So I had to draw the girl in and I'm not that great at drawing people. But I love the filigree background I know it's hard to see at the picture, and the braid popping out was a cool effect.

Nails of the day: Day 2 Night

 I love the purple and blue eye shadow gradient effect especially with my favorite glitter polish over it. Reminds me of the night sky with stars twinkling in it,so beautiful.

Nail Art Challenge : Half Moon

I'm really not a big fan of half moon nail art. But trying it with crackle polishes did make me like it a bit more.

NOTD: Spider Web Effect

I tried this type of design on my nails before but it was rainbow,which was awesome but I really wanted to try doing this with just black and white nail polish. I have to say I really love how it looks it's simple but still has a cool edge to it. I love black and white together they always look great!
                                             What is your favorite color combo?
