C is for Copycat

Today for the A2Z challenge we have C is for Copycat. I decided to do a cat theme with the cat from BM04 repeated/copied on my nails. I also did the fish from that same plate in a repeated pattern.

I used a China Glaze red for the base and stamped everything with Konad White and then colored in the cats with Ulta Concrete Evidence and dotted in LA Color Addict in Hooked to give the grey some blue spots.




 

My thumb nail is curving weird, ugh. Hopefully it will improve as my nails continue growing :(

Swatch: Glitter Gal 10 to Midnight

Isn't this a beauty? I just love my Glitter Gal holographics and this certainly did not disappoint, it's a nice cloudy black linear holographic polish!

Nail Decal Fail!

My first ever attempt at trying nail decals, and I pretty much failed. It wasn't really the coloring in that got me, it was the fact that there are letters here. Yes, in case you didn't know, when you go to make the decal it turns the image around. Therefore, if you are doing anything with letters, numbers, stuff like that; you need to make sure to invert it twice. Posting here so others can learn from my mistakes!

B is for Bold

I decided to do a gradient manicure for the next letter in the A2Z challenge (details can be found here)

This is a very bold manicure for me because not only is it neon, a gradient, but it also has the dark purple going to neon as the gradient. I really like how it turned out, my second gradient mani :)

A is for Angles

I've started a new nail art challenge to help me get back in practice. It's the NEW AtoZ challange aka A2Z hosted by Pocketmoneypolishes. Here's a post with the lowdown: Pocketmonkeypolishes

This challenge will span the alphabet and each week is a new letter. Up first is A and A is for angles. Here's my interpretation of that:

Cheeky European Romance Plate



All the details with what I used, how I did it and a complete YouTube tutorial will be in a separate post once I get it all edited :)

Music Manicure

Here's a manicure I did for a concert I performed in last year (2013).

I hope you can see it, these photos are a bit blurry.
