Holiday Snowflake Nail Art

Pin It

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays, to all my wonderful readers!

This mani was created using OPI Don't Mess With OPI. I used a fan brush to add a gradient with Zoya Leia (NEW - swatch comin' soon!) and Finger Paints Sparkle Top Coat. I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Polish & Co. Opposite of White (still an all time fave!) and stamped on some snowflakes using Winstonia plate W120. 

I like this because it's "festive" but not in your face HOLIIIIIDAYYYY!

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday, or just a dang good winter, season with family, friends, and food <3

SOME of these items were sent for review. My opinions of the brand are my own and are not influenced in any way. Please read the disclaimer tab for more information about my reviews.

Hi guys! Today I have half of the Party Girls Collection, Zoya's Holiday 2017 Collection. This half of the collection features mostly the orange and red polishes.

Spider, Frankenstein, Witch Hat and Pumpkin Nail Art

Pin It

Halloween is coming, y'all! TEN DAYS! Crazy talk. I wanted to share a Halloween themed at least once this month. A few years ago I did a design with baby ghosts. I wanted to recreate that with different Halloween themed designs.

What I like about these designs is that they were all created with various size dot tools and on nail art brush, easy peasy! Even better is that you could totally make these anyyyyy size you want :] If you'd like to learn how I created these designs I've added step-by-step directions after the jump.

Neon Pink Ombre Dotticure

Pin It I know, I know! It's been awhile since I've posted, especially for nail art. Long story short: quit my job, started a new work at home job. So since I'm no longer wasting time sitting in traffic or planning extra drive time, I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things. I know I used to post 5 days a week, I'm going to set myself up for realistic expectations and aim for ONCE a week. :]

Neon Pink Ombre Dotticure Supplies

I've done 2 dotticures in my lifetime. They are one of my favorite types of nail art, simple but still unique with so many color options! I've been waiting to wear some HOT pink polish, but I didn't feel like committing to into 10 bright-ass nails haha. So I thought I'd do a pink dotticure :] Check out my design after the jump!
