Hey everybody! If you’ve seen my blog lately, you may have noticed how busy I’ve been I’ve been with painting my nails every day. The July nail art challenge that I hosted with Brijit and Eeeek is just wrapping up- and I managed to paint my nails every single day in July! It was so much work, but so fun! If you participated in the challenge then you’ll be happy to hear that the giveaway raffle is right around the corner- stay tuned for my next post. 😀
Amongst all the July frenzy, I still managed to squeeze in time to paint my friend’s nails. My girlfriend Vanessa had a rock concert to attend.. which was the perfect excuse to try some crazy cool nail art! Here’s what we came up with!
Haha don’t you love the pink skulls stamps? So cute! And the silver flames really stand out over the black! (We used Cheeky brand stamping plates.) The stamps, the silver studs, the black & white glitter… I love this whole mani! And Vanessa’s hands are so lovely with her long rounded nails… so I can’t take all the credit! Naturally beautiful!
I’ve also been playing with some new fonts that I found online. I downloaded one called Katy Berry (hehe) which has special heart characters! So tonite I updated my header and watermark. What do you think?
Day 23 is all about music! I’m on a bit of a stamping kick lately… but I’ll go ahead and post my 3rd stamp design in a row!
I’m wearing EQUALIZER NAILS today! A few other girls in the Oh Mon Dieu Nail Challenge had the same equalizer idea. I guess we were on the same wavelength: check out Vic’s and Seize the Nail’s designs! I was the only one that ‘cheated’ by using a stamp though! LOL
For my look I started with two coats of Alpine Snow by OPI. When that was dry I sponged on stripes of four bright neon colors. Then I topped it off with my CH31 Cheeky stamp and Konad black polish. That cheeky stamp is very wide! I had a lot of black polish to clean up off my skin! Fun times.
Here’s the bright colors that I’m wearing:
RED ♥ Zoya Carmen (looks pink over top of my white base!)
ORANGE ♥ China Glaze Sun Worshiper (so bright!)
YELLOW ♥ China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini (highlighter yellow)
GREEN ♥ Cynthia Rowley Neon Green (un-named)
This mani was fun! Easy to do on both hands too. The funny thing is, I had a nail break on my dominant right hand last week, so I recently shortened all my nails, especially on that hand. Turns out, it was so much easier to stamp on those shorter nails. I kinda feel like going even shorter now! I’ve noticed that my nail length has fluctuated a bit since I’ve started blogging. They have been super long (here) and kinda short (here)… but I haven’t really settled on my signature length yet. Not sure if I ever will! I’m not habitual or predictable and I guess I change my mind a lot. I’m the type of person that manages to do the same thing different every time! So right now I want short nails. In a week I’ll probably want them long again. Who knows!
Check out the remaining themes for July↓ They get verrry interestingggg….. better put my creativity cap on!
