Dashing Diva Nail Appliqués

Hello everyone! I'm back with another fun summer design. Wooooo- two weeks of posting in a row!!!
While I'd like to say I painted these myself, I actually got help from some nail stickers. See the package below...
I think the cheery neon design is so fun for summer and would like super cute with a lot of different outfits. 
The application was a bit of a challenge at first, but after a while it got easier. Ultimately I think I spent close to an hour on these. 
Since it was my first time using full nail decals, I don't think they turned out too badly!
Have you ever tried full nail stickers like this? If you any tips to share, feel free to leave a comment!!

Happy summer!

Purple Passion

Greetings readers!!!! It's finally summer and school is out of session. So to celebrate I created a fun purple mani. Take a look!          I used a Demi Lovato "The New Black" kit for both polishes. 
I love the metallic purple matte polish. It's got a little sparkle while still not being super shiny.

I am also completely in love with the metallic foil. Just two simple coats covered the purple polish in gorgeous sparkly bits.

Hope your summers are starting out well!!! I'm loving the sunny weather!!

Spring Stamping

Greetings readers! I know this year has not gotten off to a great start with blogging for me, but I figured that today I had NO excuse NOT to post since I am on Spring Break! Woo hoo!!!! Now if only this Maryland weather could start co-operating...

But for now, Spring-y nails will have to do.
 To celebrate the season, I chose a bright orange polish from Ciate that was named Speed Dial. In person I feel the color is a little more peach-like, but with the sunshine, it looks neon.
 I felt that flowers were appropriate for spring, so I pulled out my handy little Konad stamping kit and got to work! Stamping is definitely one of my favorite nail art techniques. It's so easy after a bit of practice, and the results are adorable!
 This shot shows the butterflies I did on my ring finger and the flowers on my thumb nail.

And just a final shot...

Has it been warming up where you live? And either way, have you started your spring nail art yet?

If you are looking through your polish and need some new colors for spring, take a look at Julep's spring nail collection here: The colors are absolutely gorgeous and perfect for this time of year!

Enjoy, and as always, feel free to leave any comments or suggestions below!

Happy Spring!!!

Happy New Year!!!

Hello all!! Happy 2014!!! I suppose my resolution should be to post more often... I certainly have missed blogging but it has been a crazy year!! Anyway, here are a few photos of my New Year's mani!

My first and ring finger here are painted in Headliner by Ciate. However, on my ring finger I also have some caviar pearls. I couldn't get a clear close-up, but I love the textured 3D look of caviar!!! And it's so easy to do to... The pink is Ciate Cupcake Queen.
 And here's a shot I took that includes my thumb nail. I love the colorful red, pink, gold, and orange glitter!!!!! So pretty :) And again, it was really easy to use.
This picture shows you the caviar pearls a little bit more zoomed in. Hope you enjoyed it, and I'll try to be back with a new post soon!!!
