Firefly Nail Art

I was in a summer mood right after finishing this semester and wanted to paint some flowers in a painted mason jar. When I sat down to paint my nails I got the idea to paint fireflies in a jar. I looked for a picture and found the perfect one you can find it by searching lightning bugs in a jar.

On my ring finger is a jar sitting in the grass with fireflies in it and some flying out onto my middle and index fingers.

I took a picture of all the colors together because I thought they looked so pretty.

Neon Geometric Nail Art

I came up with the idea for these nails awhile ago. When I was bored and started drawing designs out in my swatch book. So when I had no idea what I wanted to paint I could look in there and choose one. This was the best one I came up with that day.

First painted my nails white, then added striping tape for the triangles. Next I painted the outside of the tape black and sponged silver over it. But once I took the tape off you could see some black and silver on the white. So it may be easier to just paint the white on after the black and silver. After I fixed the white I outlined it in black and put the neon dots on. And finished It off with top coat.
