Sneak Peak...

No details ('cause really, does it matter?), but I have something cool coming up in the near future. I wanted to share a sneak peak...
PAWS! Big, doofy Roki the Great Dane paws :) For a 130+ lb puppy, he was pretty well behaved.
More to come about this project later :)

Shark Week -- Inspired by Chalkboard Nails!

When I came across this post from Chalkboard Nails, I instantly wanted to reproduce it. 

My base is Floss Gloss Wet, with a little Floss Gloss Glowstar sponged on the tips for a gradient effect. For the shark I used Zoya Ling, Essie Blanc, and WetNWild Black Creme to freehand the look.

I realized after I topcoated my design that I forgot to paint on the teeth, but I think he still looks cute. 

<3<3<3 on a side note, I would like to say that I am loving the Floss Gloss I won on Listia, and am definitely going to be looking for more. The formula (in my opinion) has staying power, it's not sheer -- ie, 2 coat max application for everything I have used so far, and the colors are great. I will definitely be investing in more Floss Gloss in the future. And - well, on a very subjective note, the bottles are just so damn cute.

Shark Week

It's Shark Week! No, I'm not going to watch it (too busy doing my nails), but it's still fun.
For this Sharktacular mani I used Dermelect "Phenom" as my base, and then did a circular gradient with Zoya "Ling" and Fresh Paint "Firefly."  I paired up my Morgan Taylor "Little Black Dress" with Winstonia stamping plate #W01 and Bundle Monster plate #BM503 to make the cute little sharks. Can sharks be cute? A matte topcoat was my finishing touch, and this is what I got. I like it. :)

Happy 4th

Does anyone else find it ironic that we blow things up to celebrate the anniversary of war?

With 4th of July coming up, I was inspired by a recent email I received from Formula X to do this mani:
This is a super easy mani to do! I used striping tape and Essie "Guesso" to paint the white part of my nails. Then I added the awesome red-white-and-blue glitter topper from Funky Fingers called "Fireworks."  That's it -- simple yet festive!
