NOTD- Curved Dots

7 Oct

So today I have a quick nail art post for you guys! 🙂 These didn’t really turn out the way I wanted it too, the purple glitter didn’t have enough pink and the hot pink turned out red! 😦

Left to right, these polishes are Erre Due #186, China Glaze- Flip Flop Fantasy, and Wet N Wild in Glitz. In the bottle in real life, the Erre Due polish looks totally hot pink, but I think this picture captures how it looks on the nail very well.

I would like this a lot better if I had used different colors but I still really like the way the dots are done! I’ll try it again sometime with different colors and post it for you guys 🙂


NOTD – Dots!

14 Sep

So I guess technically this isn’t a NOTD (nail of the day) because I wore this for 3 days, but it still counts 🙂 The other day I was in the mood to do some nail art without any real effort and this is what I came up with, something simple, yet adorable!

For the white accent nail and white dots, I used OPI Alpine Snow. For the blue, I used a brand I had never heard of until I bought a bottle, Anise in the color Chill Out. I picked up that and another color at DSW a couple of months ago and just now used it. It’s a super cute color, but the brush is wayyy too tiny. It’s like trying to paint your nails with a striper brush! But, the formula was awesome, so that’s a plus I guess…

Anyway, I thought this was a super cute mani and wanted to share it with you all 🙂

NOTD Water Marbling and Dots

26 Aug

As much as I love just painting my nails, I also love nail art. I only started getting into nail art earlier this year, so I’m still a total noob.

This is my attempt at water marbling. I will not lie, I’m awful at it. I’ve only done it once or twice before and it’s to time consuming to really practice a lot. After I did the marbling, I used my dotting tools to do dots over the strips of color.

These are the colors I used: OPI – Suzi Says Feng Shui (in the water marbling and the color on the rest of the nails), China Glaze – For Audrey, and Sinful Colors- Snow Me White. The Sinful Colors white is the one I use for all my white nail art and water marbling. You can see that there’s a line of white polish that dripped down it. Water marbling is sooo messy 😛

This is what I do my water marbling in. It’s just a little glass flower pot that I bought at Hobby Lobby. I know a lot of people use shot glasses or plastic cups. It doesn’t really matter what you use, the effect will still be the same.

By the way! I don’t think I’ve mentioned this yet, but I use OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener as my base coat, and I finally used up my first bottle! When I opened the next one up and used it, I realized that it was a lot thinner than what little was left in my last bottle. I think over time, it just slowly got thicker and thicker. I’m just surprised I never noticed!
