Fairy Dust Glitter Ombre Mani

My favorite way to cover up wear and chips on my nails is to do a glitter ombre on them! They're super easy to do and look so pretty! What I like to do is first paint a thin coat of glitter just on the tips. Then, one nail at a time, I put a glob of glitter on the tips and brush it back. Finish with a top coat and done! It looks like a fairy sprinkled some magic dust on them, right?! The pale pink is Sinful Colors in Easy Going and the glitter is Nicole by OPI in Twist of Fate. Be sure to use a fine glitter polish for this and not a large glitter, as you wouldn't get the same effect.

Fashion's Night Out Mani!

Happy Fashion Week and Fashion's Night Out!! Just wanted to post my mani for tonight before I head out! With FNO's colors being black, white, and red, I of course had to follow that color scheme on my nails! I did two firsts for me on this mani: Louboutin nails and made my own nail "sticker." I first did the Louboutin part, which is just painting red underneath the nail. I used Wet N Wild's Wild Shine #414A and also used my base coat and top coat. For the top of my nails, I used Wet N Wild's Fastdry in Ebony Hates Chris. Then, I made my own nail sticker with FNO's logo and stuck a red square gem on it! Hope everyone has fun shopping and enjoying all the festivities tonight!!

How to Make Your Own Nail Stickers!

Ever want to make a design that was too complicated to draw free-hand? I've got your problem solved! This worked out perfectly for my Fashion's Night Out nails and I can't wait to use this again!!

Orange & Turquoise Leopard Mani!

So I've posted a leopard mani before, but I just did this one and loved the color combo so I of course had to share it! I got so many compliments on them from random people!! As I've said before, they're super easy to do, but nobody believes me!! They take me literally ten minutes to do! In my post about my first leopard mani, I only put a couple of leopard spots, but now in doing this one, I think for a true leopard effect, there should be about nine spots on each nail! The colors I used for this are China Glaze's Peachy Keen and Sally Hansen's nail art pens in turquoise and black.
