Lacquer Legion: Garden

~Nothing To Disclose~

Happy Wednesday! My mani today was inspired by a fellow nail artist in one of my facebook groups. I also got lucky that this mani can count toward Lacquer Legions prompt today, which is garden.

China Glaze: Pool Party
Cosmetic Arts: Picture Day
Cheeky Jumbo 7

I really enjoyed the end result of this mani. It's sort of subtle nail art and also elongates your nails by having a brighter color at the tips of your nails. If you have a garden theme mani today make sure to take part in the Lacquer Legion!

BPS: QA83 Stamping Plate with Cult Gradient

~Press Sample & Nothing to Disclose~

Good Morning, I have a springy mani I wore this past weekend. It features a stamping plate from the Born Pretty Store. I also am using my first Cult Nails nail polish in this man. The two colors I used are part of their new collection, Its a New Day, which is the perfect spring collection.

I have to say this has to be my favorite spring mani so far. I can't believe how long it has been since I have done a gradient. I also have rave reviews on Cult Nails polish, very easy application and gorgeous colors, I can see this brand growing in my stash very quickly :D

I wasn't to in love with this mani.. but I did enjoy how shiny it was! The only reason I bought Snow You Love Me was since I found it on clearance and thought be a great polish to just add to my collection. Not to sure how much use it will get tho..

Nail Painting Weekend with the Boyfriend

Hello lovelies! Since I didn't get a post edited for today (crazy morning) I thought I would post about my recently uploaded Youtube Video. Wait, did you know that I have a youtube channel now?!?! If not, check it out here.

To explain the video lets start from the top! My boyfriend has a youtube channel, where he does vlogs and skits. He is going to school for broadcasting and video production which is why he enjoys youtube. I thought about doing this collaboration when him and his sister were joking about him doing his nails, since she recently joined in on the fun of nail art.

Last weekend we made a two part video for both of our channels. His channel shows me teaching him each nail art style on HIS nails and mine shows HIM painting the same mani on my nails!! I can't even tell you how much fun it was to do this, you will have many laughs at his attempt and maybe learn some simple nail art styles from me teaching him :D

First watch his video learning how to do the nail art.

Now watch his attempt!

I had so much fun doing this, it still makes me laugh when I re watch them. I was proud of my boyfriend and I think he has lots of potential ;) Although these nails didn't last more than 10min on each of us it was totally worth it. 
Have you ever had a guy try to paint your nails?

Teal Puzzle Pieces

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

Happy Friday!! Man I am so happy it's finally Friday, I can't really complain since I had a snow day Monday, but this week has dragged on. My mani today is an advanced approach to the puzzle design. I thought it would be neat to have pattern puzzle pieces so I did some stamping than free handed the puzzle design.

OPI: Ski Teal We Drop
Sally Hansen: Silver Sweep

This was rather hard to get a good puzzle image. Overall I am happy with how it turned out, next time I might try to use a more opaque polish since filling in the pieces took a few coats.
Have a wonderful weekend :D

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

Morning, today I have a fun review of some nail art brushes from KKCenterHK. I wasn't exactually sure how to review these but I gave it my best shot!

The brushes it comes with are
1- Feather Brush
1- Small Dotting Tool
2- Angled Brushes
3- Small Detail Brushes (1- Angled Tip)

I used one of the small detail brushes to create the stamping decal and the feather brush to create my accent nails.

Zoya: Ricky, Chantal, Rocky, and Darcy

I found these brushes to be sturdy and they didn't shed. I really liked how fine the small brushes are, which helps for small details. I have two tutorials on this mani that I will post tomorrow.

You can find this brush set here for only $13.75.  KKCenterHK is a great website to find tons of items for nail art.  If you haven't visited this site yet you should really go and check out all they have to offer for nail decor, make sure to use my 10% off code below!!

Late post today, I had a meeting with a client this morning. I recently seen a mani that had a matte background with metallic stamping and wanted to recreate that design.

Zoya: Sailor

Happy Friday!! I have a fun weekend ahead of me, celebrating my boyfriend going to college. Luckily he will only be an hour away :) Also I will be going to my one of my Dad's civil war reenactments. For my weekend nails I decided to do some accent stamped nails with my favorite Pixie Dust.

Gosh Carter is just an amazing color, I added top coat to this mani to make the glitters really pop! I also am finally proud to say my nails are back to great shape since my mishap in the beginning of July :D. Have a great weekend lovelies!

Nails from Camping Trip

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

Happy Monday lovelies, I hope everyone had a great weekend. My weekend was filled with camping and doing nails. Every year my family along with five other families go camping for a week, I went up for the weekend and did about 20 set of nails, including some men! Today I wanted to share the mani that I got pictures of, I did use my phone camera and no light box so apologize for any bad quality photos.

First up I have all the ladies nails I did, sadly I didn't get pictures of them all and some turned out blurry. I had a ton of fun showing these girls all the different techiniques I use and espically amazed them all with stamping.

My sister was inspired by a pin on pinterest.

She loved purples and pearls.

This young lady loved my peacock nails from last year, she also is getting into doing her own nail art!

My Mom wanted a sunset, and also loved my gone with the wind so we incorporated a tree.

She was inspired by my blingy mani a few months back, and we changed the colors to pink.

The hornet represent the school mascot where she works.

I loved how the silver popped off the blue background, also the hot air balloon was a fan favorite.

My brother's fiance found an owl pin on pinterest that she wanted.
She wanted a subtle design that was work appropriate.

Even some of the men let me do their nails/nail!

This is my boyfriends, his favorite nfl team being the Texans.

Also my Dad wanted a confederate flag since he does civil war reenactments.

This man was the most fun to do, he knew exactly what he wanted. Love the bright colors!
It was a blast doing all these nails. I love being able to show others all the possibilities you can do with nail polish. It is also fun to watch how amazed they were with my collection.  I was most proud of the Texan's thumbs for my boyfriend, he was totally obsessed with them also :D
Have a great work week!!
