Mint and Glitter Half-Moon Mani

Happy MLK Jr. Day! Hope everyone is enjoying their day off! For this super cute mani I used Wet N Wild's Fast Dry in #229C Ebony Hate Chris, China Glaze's #551 Fairy Dust, and Revlon's #85 Minted. This manicure started off as just black, but then it started to chip and I didn't feel like changing it, so I touched up the chips and threw on the glitter. (The glitter is awesome, by the way! It's holographic glitter and shines like crazy in the light!) Then that started to chip and I still didn't feel like changing it, so I stuck on the hole reinforcers and made the mani minty fresh! Top coat to seal it all in, of course!

Red and Pink Leopard Mani

This mani originally was just a basic red, but I thought, "Hey, let's spice it up some," so I did leopard, naturally. For the red I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in #375 Stiletto Red and to make the leopard I used Sally Hansen's nail art pens in pink and black. For the tutorial on how to do a leopard mani, click here. I PROMISE it only takes 15 minutes!! Don't forget your top coat! (Especially if you use the Sally Hansen nail art pens- they wipe off easy without it!)
