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

I’m a cat person, but I figured since my sister loves dogs the most it would not be disloyal to create nail art to honor dog life companions for #StampingSaturdayAug. Since #clairestelle8challenge also had a prompt for Sunset, I decided to combine the two into this nail art. I did Read More

#aznailartchallenge on Instagram is on J for Jungle and #30daysofcolour has a holo theme this week. While poison dart frogs would have also made me happy, they’d be harder to do with the holo polishes I have so I decided to go with monkeys instead. Also, it allowed me to Read More

Cake is a vector for icing. The ABC nail art challenge has reached the letter ‘I’ and I picked icing. I started with a base of Sinful Colors’ “Konstellation” from the Kylie Jenner Trend Matters (2016). The reviews I saw from others described it as an oil slick on your Read More
