Inspired by@agehanails

To be quite honest, I was feeling quite uninspired when I sat down to do my nails, so I went to my trusty Pinterest Nail Art page to look for some inspiration. I decided to recreate this mani from @agehanails - she does awesome work! 
I used OPI Color Paints, Zoya's "Aspen" and a few rhinestones. I employed a dry brush technique for the black accents.

Deadpool Nails

FINALLY I got to see Deadpool, and it was awesome :)

For these nails, I started with a base coat of Color Club's "Harp on It," which is an amazing holographic polish.
All of the graphics were  done with stamps. For the Deadpool face, I used a peace sign (BM#07), removed the two diagonal lines, and used a reverse stamping method for the rest.
The lightning images on the pinky are from Born Pretty Store plate #BP06.
HeHe plate #008 is where the guns came from.
The letters D and P are brought to you today by plates #m17 and #m18.
And finally, the blood drips are from another Born Pretty plate - #BP29.

Coffee Nail Art

I am one of the few people in the world that HATES coffee. The smell alone makes me gag. My family, however, runs on coffee. So I was excited when I got this new stamping plate off Ebay.
This is my first Tian Xin plate, and I am pleased with the quality -- I was a little worried since it was so cheap, but it's definitely worthwhile.

Shattered Glass

I finally  got my hands on some holo foil paper from Born Pretty Store to create some shattered glass nail art!
My base is "Wet Suit" by Sally Hansen - I love this color! Is it grey, blue, purple or a combo? I'm not really sure, but I like it. I cut the holographic sheets of mylar into tiny strips, and applied them using a clear coat. I used Seche Vite to seal everything in, and that was it! This is a really pretty look that is fairly easy (albeit slightly time consuming) to create. I can't wait to use more of this in the future.

Paws and Hearts

My mom is the director for a Humane Society, so naturally we always put dogs on her nails. 
For today she decided on paw prints and hearts. 
Her ring fingers are stamped with a heart embracing a paw. This stamp is from My Online Shop, plate #JR-35.  We stamped paws and hearts on the rest of the nails, using plates QA23 and m18.

Inspired by....

Inspiration can come in the craziest places! Today's mani was inspired by a lighter. :)
I started with a black base coat for this design. I stamped on a lace design with one of Bundle Monster's new blogger collab plates, BM-XL206, using a lavender polish ("Sugar Plum Fairy" from Funky Fingers). I then took the pink and purple polishes from the OPI Sheer Tints and sponged them at the top of the nail to create a gradient.

Where is the strangest place you have found inspiration?
