I’m back with nail art! It’s been quite a hot minute since I’ve posted nail art. I fell off the wagon for a while. I didn’t even paint my nails for a whole month. After 5+ years on constantly having my nails painted, I think I was burnt out. But after doing this nail art and trying some others, I think I may be back in the swing of things. Let’s hope this streak lasts!
Today’s look uses the Bundle Monster Teenage Dream stamping plate set. These plates came out a while ago, but this is one of the first looks I used using multiple plates. I was inspired by these nails by midnight_stamper. I did mine a little differently, but I think the overall look is the same. Check out how to get these nails down below!
For a while I wasn’t into nail art. I’m not really sure what happened, but doing my nails became a chore. Painting my nails only takes 10 minutes, but nail art? That can take an hour to do. But in a moment of clarity, I sat down and created this fun rainbow gradient nail art using some stamping. Find out how I got this rainbow arrows #NOTD and how I do my gradients!
We’ve all seen it in every magazine we’ve read: supplements will help your hair, skin and nails grow longer, stay pimple free, and grow stronger. I’ve tried biotin, collagen and multi-vitamins to help my nails grow faster, stronger and longer. But those three left me with acne, nasty hair, and no help in growing the strong nails that I wanted. I don’t know how I found out about liquid silica, but after reading only one article, I knew that I would give this a try. In that article, the author explained that they used liquid silica for nail growth and hair growth, but mostly for nail growth. They said that biotin hadn’t helped them grow nails, but liquid silica did. It was on sale on Amazon that week, so I said “why not” and decided to try it out. Read below for my 30 day update!
For a while there I thought I wouldn’t be able to do nail art for a long time. All of my nails broke and they looked awful. On top of that, my cuticles were a mess. They haven’t fully grown back yet. However, they’ve gotten to a point where I can do nail art without pain and have it look good on some manicured nails. When I bought the Bundle Monster Festival nail plate set last year, I bought it mostly for plate BM-S303. That plate has the coolest images on it. So, using that plate and BM-2305, I create this nail art design that I never want to take off. Seriously, the arrows look so cool. Found out how I got this Bundle Monster Peace Out, Astronaut #NOTD down below!
February was a short month but yet it lasted so long? Like, every week felt like an eternity? Usually months go by so fast, but this month went by so painstakingly slow. I guess that meant I got to try out more products! Read about my February favorites down below!
After playing with the OPI Color Paints back in December, I haven’t really given them much thought. I see them at the front of my nail polish drawer taunting me to use them, yet I never pick them up. But after seeing all of the beautiful watercolor designs that magic.design makes on Instagram, I wanted to play with them a little more. While my nail art is not as beautiful as magic.polish makes, I am in love with the way this turned out. Want to know how I got this? Check out this Rainbow Aztec #NOTD down below!
A few months ago I ordered a bottle of my absolute favorite top coat from Glisten and Glow. After using it for a month, I realized that the consistency was off, so I contacted the brand and they were able to send me a new top coat. But on top of that, Jill sent the brand’s base coat and the Birthday Bash January 2017 nail polish! I thought what better way to show off this beautiful blurple holo than with some nail art. Find out how I used Glisten and Glow Birthday Bash down below!
I’ve been kind of in a nail art funk lately. It’s like nothing that I create looks good anymore. I’ll try to attempt some cool nail art, but it never looks right. So I took a break from nail art for a while and stepped back in when I felt like my nails were looking a little boring. I took a look through my stamping plates and noticed that I still hadn’t used the MoYou London Tumblr Girl plate that I bought back in September. It’s a collection filled with cool images that are just so Tumblr-esque. I was inspired by the colors on the plate’s sleeve and created this pastel nail art! Check out how I used the plate down below!
January flew by so quick but yet lasted super long?? I feel like the month just started, but last week feels like months ago. That’s why I was surprised to see that I have so many January empties. Check them out down below!
As with most people, a new year means an excuse for a new you. It’s finally a time to try out new things: a new makeup look, new skincare routine or maybe a new signature scent. For me it meant focussing on what I really love. That meant a focus on skincare and fragrance. Check out what my January favorites are!
