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 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!
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!
2016 was a wonderful year for my blog. Not only was it the first full year of blogging, but I got to try out a ton of cool stuff in the name of reviewing it for all of you. Some of things I bought were because I truly wanted them. But most of them were because I knew that you guys would enjoy reading reviews and seeing tutorials using these products.
After looking through my favorites throughout the year, I finally came up with a few select products that I can truly say stood out in 2016. These are the products that surprised me, made my day brighter or made me wonder how I lived without them.
Check out my 2016 year-end favorites down below!
Christmas nail art is one of my favorites to create, so after using the MoYou London Festive 06 plate in my last nail art and purchasing the OPI Color Paints, creating a fun Christmas nail art using the two was a no brainer. Check out this easy-to-create OPI Color Paints nail art!
I’m thrilled to be posting nail art again. My nails have been nubs for the past month. They’re at a decent length again and I was able to do some nail art to start off the holiday season. I settled on some ugly christmas sweater nail art, although it isn’t really that ugly. Red and white was a no brainer and I think it looks so cool. Find out how I got this down below!
For Halloween this year I set out with the intention to create a full week of nail art designs and makeup looks. But that didn’t happen. I was looking at my collection of stamping plates and found three that had candy, ice cream and donuts and I thought to make a spooky candy-themed nail art. But instead I got this super cute, sugar-coma inducing candy design. I’ve never made stamping nail art decals and actually used them, so creating this nail art was a bit of a challenge for me. I think it turned out pretty good and I have some tips and tricks to create a perfect nail polish decal.
I bought a plate from Bundle Monster to do a fall nail art, and after buying OPI Yank My Doodle, I knew that I had to use the two together. I’ve never done a layered stamping nail art before and it was a lot of fun to create. This mani screams fall to me and when I look down at my nails, all I think of is pumpkin spice. This doesn’t have pumpkin on it, but that’s just how I feel. Learn how I created this down below!
On the heels of my Fall Lip Picks post I thought I would also share my favorite nail polishes for fall. Most of them are new favorites, but I do have some oldies in here too. Read about them below!
Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m going through my August empties. I’ve got a lot here, so grab an iced tea and your favorite snack and let’s go through this!
