Nail Art Stamping – Neon Negative space

20150317_024732aA while back I got a custom order on my Etsy for some simple painted stilettos which the customer was very keen on them being Coral colored. I agree to the request and went to gather my supplies just to realize I didn’t have 1 coral color, nothing even similar. I can’t for the life of me figure out how that happened…lol So anyways I went to Walmart real fast, on a quest to find the perfect coral shade and came home with 3: Sinful Colors Island Coral and 2 of this Salon Perfect Flamingo Flair.

I have never tried this polish brand before (I have used their false lashes before though) but I am blown away by this coral; it is so bright and beautiful. The formula is a little on the chalky side however, but I think mixing in a bit of top coat will help smooth it out. It also dries matte, which I don’t mind, but it is also incredibly hard to photograph and capture it’s true glory. I did try my best to capture it even though these pictures are crap quality. lol

I decided to pair it with a geometric negative space design. Since it is so bright I just wanted it to be a pop of color rather then be overwhelming. Here is what I used to create this nail look:

Colors used:

Salon Perfect – Flamingo Flair

Kleancolor – Black

Seche Vite – Top Coat

Nail Art Stamping – Pink Damask

20150319_202026a 20150319_202104aHappy Friday everyone! So. I am not the biggest fan of pink but I do love all things damask! And these paired together sure make for a delicate design; a bit on the girly side but beautiful none the less. 🙂 I used pink because this design was inspired from some decorative boxes I had (that happened to be pink) and I wanted to replicate it exactly how I saw it. I wish I had pictures of the boxes, but unfortunately I do not. However, here is what I used to create this nail look:

Colors used:

Sinful Shine – Come Hither

Sinful Shine – VIP

Kleancolor – White

Seche Vite – Top Coat

20150309_19422420150309_19381920150309_193839Hi everyone, happy Friday! It is starting to get warmer here, really warm… in the 80s f already. It keeps changing though; one day it was 83 then the next it was 65 then back up. Pretty annoying, must be global warming. And wow I am talking about the weather because that’s interesting… Lol anyways I thought it was the perfect time for some bright sunny yellow nails..with leopard! This is sort of a recreation of one of the first manicures I ever uploaded here, but revamped. Here is what I used:

Colors used:

False Nail Set – Green For St. Patrick’s

20150124_143716 20150124_143722I am a day late but, happy St. Patrick’s Day to those whom celebrate it! You can’t pinch me because I am wearing green. 😛 Anyone else do that as a kid? If you weren’t wearing green on St patty’s day you would have to get pinched! A weird little tradition us kids had. I wonder if anyone still does that though? 🙂

Negative Space Nail Art – She Sells Sea Shells

20150305_192125I don’t know if anyone has noticed but I have been really hooked on negative space manis lately. So here is another! 😀 I went with a red and gold nautical theme for this one. I started with one of my all time favorite reds – Color Club Red-ical Gypsy- I have had it forever and think it might be retired; which sucks. After adding the striping tape, I went ahead and added top coat. Thinking I would just add the embellishments and be done, the pearls specifically, I noticed it just didn’t look right. So to tie it all together I went back and sponged on some Sally Hansen Hard To Tell to add some more of the pearl color. That made it look much better!

20150305_193756I also took this opportunity to play around with the pictures/photography aspect (one of the reasons there are more pictures than usual). Upon doing so I decided to bring the bottle back to my photos and I think I like it again 🙂 I would like to hear your opinion though; Do you prefer to see the nail polish bottle? Yes? No? Don’t care? lol

20150305_193849Thanks for reading (if you actually did, lol)

Hope you guys have a great weekend! I will talk to you again on Monday. ❤
