I need to stop forgetting how easy and fun gradients are. For this design I used Sally Hansen - Co-Bolt Blue, Sally Hansen - Celeb City and Sally Hansen - White On with a top coat of good ol' Seche Vite.

Pink Ombre Blocks

I had a really long day - A roller-coaster of emotions. So, I decided to take my frustrations out on my nails with 3 hours of nail therapy and tedious taping. Results? Worth it!

For my thumbs I used OPI Holland Dutch Treats Mini - Petal Faster Suzi. My index fingers have Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Bubblegum Pink. Both ring fingers have OPI Holland Dutch Treats Mini - Kiss Me on My Tulips. My ring fingers have a mix  of Sally Hansen White On and Sally Hansen - Twisted Pink. Finally, my pinkies have Twisted Pink.

I Have a Herring Problem

Today I decided to go with OPI Holland Dutch Treats Mini - I Have a Herring Problem. Just the right amount of shimmer in this grey. Ooh la la!

Vintage Roses

This is my first attempt at Vintage Roses and I am quite please with the results. I had already completed the stripes yesterday and wasn't quite sure where this design was going. After browsing my favorite lacqueristas I decided to try my hand at vintage roses and WHOA - It totally came out better than I expected!

The original design.

Funky Zig Zags

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do to my nails so this is what I ended up with. I used China Glaze - Twenty-Four K, China Glaze - 5 Golden Rings, Sally Hansen - Twisted Pink and of course Seche Vite.

I had to capture this in the sunlight. Let me know what you think.

Twenty-Four K

I finally had a chance to try China Glaze - Twenty-Four K. What do you think?

Easy Surfboard Stripes Tutorial

I thought I would add a brief tutorial on how I achieved my Surfboard mani. It's really simple and the possible color combinations are endless! Also, I am completely bored at work and all I have access to right now is Microsoft Paint (which is what I used to create this) which is why the quality isn't so nice. 

I hope you like it!

Converse Nails

My inspiration for this Mani came from Cute Polish

Fun Facts about Chuck Taylor:
Taylor began his career with the Converse Rubber Company in 1921, and he eventually worked with the company's development to design a shoe for basketball players. Taylor's shoe design was focused on comfort and performance. Converse added Taylor's signature to the shoe to go along with its own trademark star in 1932. Converse All-Star shoes started out in limited production and distribution, but eventually became the highest-selling basketball shoe in history. Read more here.

Checkered Nails Tutorial

I got so many amazing compliments on my checkered nails that I decided to make a brief tutorial using my friend Cinthya as my hand model. We decided to go with the original checkerboard colors of Black, Red and Gold. I hope you like it!

To achieve this look, paint your nails 1 coat of your choice of color and wait for it to dry. Apply strips of striping tape to create a checkerboard design. Color in the boxes and remove the tape before the polish dries (You'll need to do this one nail at a time). Repeat this process until your Checkered Mani is complete. Apply a fast drying top coat and stare at your beautiful creation!

Texas Rangers Nails

This style has Red nail polish with Blue tips and White striping at an angle. My accent nails were done with Blue polish and I drew a white "T" for their logo. Both thumbs have White polish with Red marks to make them into baseballs. I finished this design with a fast drying top coat to protect the polish. Everything was done freehand.
