Watermelon Nails

Ugh I'm shocked that I have as many followers as I do now. I just want to say to you all thanks for sticking with me through this process. I am literally so exhausted from school that I barely have time to get on here. Either way lets just proceed with the nail art. Today I decided just to do some simple watermelon nails. When I say these were easy they literally were. I used OPI Hollywood is My Address as a base and then I use black acrylic paint for the seeds, white for the rinds, and a mixture of green for the skin of the watermelon. I used a flat brush for the french tip and just a small brush for the seeds. I really liked this simple nail and everyone else did to. I hope you enjoy !

PS: I got a new camera so picture will better and much more clear.

Tribal Nails(While I Was Gone)

Hey everyone. I hope you all had a great week and are having a great weekend. Today I have a beautiful tribal nail that I'm actually quite happy with. This was another mani that I did will I was gone. While I was gone I decided to do the big chop of my nails again because they were getting too long for me to handle. They were so short so I decided to do some nail art that could cover up the whole area of my nail. I decided on tribal. I had been seeing these all over the place so I said hey why not give it try. I'm so happy that I did because it came out great. I used China Glaze Street Chic as a base and then China Glaze Secret Periwinkle and China Glaze Spontaneous as the blue and the purple in the nail desgin. To do the fine details I used black and white acrylic paints. I came up with the designs all on my own and I was really happy with them. I think I wore these for about a week. Anyway you should give this a try. Enjoy !

While I was gone Part 1 !

Hey everyone ! I know I promised a post a while ago but between winter break and my mom's birthday all falling at the same time I spent some well needed time with family and friends. So instead of doing just one boring post I figured that I should do a recap of the things I did while I was gone. Each design I did I was pretty happy with and I feel like I've improved while I was gone. If you have any questions on what colors I used please feel free to ask because it would only be bothersome to list them all now and I'm sure you don't want to read them all. In saying that the first design was inspired by this video from Robin Moses but mine ended up turning out to be something completely different. I really liked it though ! The next design was one that I came with all on my own. It came out beautifully and I was surprised at myself. The nail art even came out great on the opposite hand.The last one for today was right before Christmas and I figured I should do some candy cane nails. I had no intention on doing these nails but the kids in my school had been putting in requests for these so I eventually ended up doing them. I hope you enjoyed all these designs and please feel free to ask any questions ! Have a beautiful night and day !

PS: I will be hosting a giveaway really soon ! Be on the lookout for that .
PPS: I'm going to go catch up on every single post that I've missed. I will comment on as much a I can !
