Nudey Neon

      This is the second time I've done this mani and I still love it. The last time I did it I had pointy nails, I think it looks good on both pointy and square.

     For this I used
  • Essie Topless & Barefoot
  • Black Poppy Nail Color
The color has no name, but this is what it looks like.

      To do this, I just painted half of my nails with Topless&Barefoot. Then, with damp makeup sponge I dabbed on the pink color. Finish with Seche Vite.

Clean Coral

      If I had to choose a favorite nail polish color, I'd probably have to say coral. I have so many coral nail polishes it's pretty ridiculous. I got this one while the Sinful Colors were on sale at Walgreens last week.
This is Sinful Colors Island Coral
    The glitter is a Color Club that I got at Ross. Unfortunately, It doesn't have a name on it, so I don't know what it's called.

      This is just a simple mani, but I really love it. It looks so beachy and the glitter looks like sparkling pink sand!

      I'm sure everyone has heard that The Dark Knight Rises is coming out on Friday. It's one of the most anticipated films of 2012 and I'm super excited to see it! Naturally, I had to do some nails in celebration of this movie coming out.

      Here is my Batmani! I tried this yesterday with black and silver and I wasn't to happy with how it turned out, So today I tried again with yellow instead of silver to give a more vintage batman feel and I love it so much more than yesterday.

For this I used
Kleancolor - Neon Yellow
Essence - Black is Back
medium striper brush

       So, I keep seeing those iPhone cases that look like melting ice cream. I saw them again on tumblr the other day and I was like "Omg those colors would look awesome on nails!" The blue and pink one, obviously. I've seen the "drip" style nails before, and I've done them once before, but I never thought to combine these colors.
      I am so glad I did because I am in love with this. I really can't stop admiring it. It just feels like summer!

      The colors I used for this are
Essence You Belong To Me
Black Poppy (the color has no name, unfortunately)

      I used a fine tip, slanted brush to draw the drips and the little white lines to make them look more three dimensional.

Just Because

      I did this a few weeks ago and forgot to post it. Just a green and purple gradient with a tribal accent. I'm really not sure how I feel about that accent. I kinda wish I would've made it white or something.

      The green is Illamasqua Nomad and the purple is some no name color from forever 21. It glows under a black light. That's pretty cool, but I don't have a black light so I cant show its awesomeness.

English Rose

    This is my first successful attempt at nail foils. I got my order from dollarnailart.com a few weeks ago and I immediately tried out some of the foils. My first few tries turned out really bad. I then found out that most top coats over the metallic foils completely wrinkle them. I was a little more than disappointed and kinda gave up on them for about 2 weeks.
      So, yesterday I was just messing around again and I used English Rose. A foil that I hadn't tried out yet on my nails. It's not metallic like most of the other foils that I got so I did put a top coat on it and it worked!

      English Rose is a very sheer, shimmery white with pinkish colored flowers. I put this over two coats of a white, Essie Blanc. My ring finger is OPI Teenage Dream from the Katy Perry collection that came out a while ago.

      I'm really happy with how this came out. I'll admit that I keep admiring them. They are just too pretty not to!
