It’s been a while since I used the polishes from Sinful Colors’ Luxe Fragments collection. I love their bright jelly formulas and the flakes of glitter sponged over a sheer white gel polish really pop. I used gradient stamping to add my stars so they could fade into the background Read More

Today I have for you a nail art brought to you by the prompts from #GlamNailsChallenge (Travel) and #NailChallengeCollaborative (Inspired by a Book). I decided to go with a circus theme and based my design around a book I read a few months ago called Daughter of the Burning City Read More

When I was younger what I called “turquoise” was a much more vivid and blue-leaning color than the shade that most people think of when they hear the word. Instead, I think people think of the actual gemstone which tends to be lighter and much more green-leaning and so I’ve Read More

It’s Pride Month and I’ve been itching to paint some LGBTQ positive nail art since it started, but the challenges I was following really didn’t fit with that until now. #26GreatNailArtIdeas‘ prompt of graffiti fits well with a rainbow theme so I grabbed Born Pretty Valentine’s Day BP-L005 and got Read More

The concept was simple: a kite for #GlamNailsChallenge and a sunset (with “Jamaican Out”) for #beautometrynailchallenge. Somehow I thought I’d be able to finish this nail art more quickly, but I didn’t want to just throw a gradient on my nails. So I found myself using sharpie ink with a Read More

This is a strange little recreate because, for the most part, I loved the original. However, my middle and ring finger didn’t make much sense in the context of the rest of the nail art. I like to show progression or tell a little story and they were more about Read More

It’s important to include key words in your title. *cough* Yep… So this was a wonderful blend of prompts: #AZNailArtChallenge’s Indie and both #SummerToxicVanity’s, #Beautometry’s and #GlamNailChallenge’s Mermaid (very common theme for this month). Now I only had to include an indie polish as my base, but I also wanted Read More

Sometimes you create a theme that is just easy and fun to revisit. I stumbled across one in October last year with Black Cat. The idea is simple: 3-4 letter animal word, black jelly base, my favorite netting texture from KADS KADS 017, typewriter key letters, and black stamping images Read More
