August Challenge: Bold Nail Art

  I didn't really know what bold nails were, probably since to most people all of my nail art could be considered kind bold because its not just plain and one color nail polish. So I looked up bold nails and somehow got the idea for doing some pop artish type nails

Colors used:
Sinful Colors- Sizzling
Orly- Liquid Vinyl
OPI- Red Lights Ahead... Where?
Nicole By OPI- Hit The Lights
Sally Hansen- Hard To Get, Coral Reef, Blue Me Away! And Sunkissed

August Challenge: Ombre Nail Art

 For this days challenge I didn't just want to do like an ombré gradient. Then I thought it would be cool to splatter in different shades of the same color ,but before starting i was looking at nail art on Google and saw paint drip nails and in my head saw a gradient with the darker shade dripping down to the white.

Colors used:
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails- Hard to get
Sally Hansen Insta-dry- Blue-Away
Sinful Colors- Jolt and Break Away

August Challenge: Stripes

Stripes can be pretty boring. And I couldn't think of anything to make stripes cooler that hasn't been done. So being completely uninspired I just painted this simple little design with just black and white.
I guess they are better than stripes that just go in one direction.

Colors used:
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails- Hard To Get
Orly- liquid Vinyl

August Challenge: Animal Print

I wish I could of done an animal print that hasn't been done before. I tried a could not find a good print. Instead to make the Zebra print nails look cooler and more unique I made them rainbow. For the background to the stripes I used yellow as a base color then sponged a gradient using pink, orange, and yellow. Then with green, blue, and purple made zebra stripes.

Colors used:
O.P.I- Did It On 'Em
Nicole by O.P.I.- Hit The Lights
Sally Hansen- Sun Kissed
Sinful Colors- Sizzling, Jolt and Pragmatic

Please leave me a comment telling me what you think.

Once Upon A Time Nails

I'm really loving the show Once Upon A Time and thought the logo would be a really cool nail art design.

August Challenge: Character Nails

Since character is the challenge today I decided to paint these Phineas And Ferb characters. I painted Phineas, Ferb, Candace and Jeremy's outfits and Perry the Platypus. I have actually painted these before but I never was able to blog them and don't know where the pictures are at. Plus that was back when i used paint for a lot of my nail art so I'm sure these look a lot better than the last time.

To get the colors for these i had to do a lot of mixing of my polishes.

August Challenge: Re-Creation Nail Art

Day number twos challenge was to re-create another's design for this I decided to paint Pshiiit's design you can view it here

I started with two coats of Opi nail envy then one coat of China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat. For the base color I used one coat of  Opi Don't Pretzel My Buttons. Once that was dry I painted squiggly lines in all different directions not completely covering up the base color. For that I used Nichole by Opi's Naturally and Hit The Lights, Opi Did It On 'Em, Sinful Shine's Royal Flush and Sally Hanson's Maximum Growth Plus in Copper Glamour. For the Ikat look I used my skinniest brush making like little tick marks and the black I used is Orly Liquid Vinyl.


August Challenge: Gradients

Okay so I should of put this up on August first, but just posted on Tumblr and not on here too. If I amgoing to do the August Nail Art Challenge from Californails from this picture I saw on Tumblr.

For August first the challenge is gradients and I already had Gradients ready before I saw this and thought this is perfect, I'm going to do this (at least most of it). So here are my gradient nails.

I did a neon gradient using china glaze neons and added neon yellow suns. Also below is white suns because I thought they both looked cute.

Comment ideas for this months challenge or nail art you want me to do next month
Next challenge will be up later today
