Blue and Black Dotticure

27 Feb

It’s been a while since I did a chevron so I decided to do the dotticure version.Dotticure_blue_black (1) WLcopyI love the combination of black and aqua-ish blue.  I used Wet ‘n Wild I Need a Refresh-Mint and black acrylic.

Dotticure_blue_black (6) WLcopyHow do you like my short little nubby nails?  I’ve been trying to keep them a little shorter lately, but I broke my middle nail pretty low and there was nothing I could do but shorten them all.  Oh well.  They grow pretty fast, so they’ll be back to normal in a week.

Valentine’s Heart French

6 Feb

With Valentine’s Day coming up next week, I’ve been thinking about designs with hearts.Heart_french (11) WLcopyWhile I don’t do french manicures very often, I really love the look of them. They feel very classy and sophisticated to me. This is definitely a bit more playful then the traditional white tip.

Heart_french (15) WLcopyI used Color Club Edie for my tip and acrylics for the hearts and dots.

Leopard French-ish

28 Jan

I’ve been seeing these type of French manicures around a lot lately and I love them! So I decided to do one for myself.Leopard_french_pink_aqua_grey (2) WLcopyFortunately my nails are stained at the moment so I was safe to show off a little naked nail. 🙂 As I often do, I chose my colors from the polishes I already had out. I used OPI Pink Friday for my tips, Color Club Edie for the aqua spots and CND Asphalt is the grey. Leopard_french_pink_aqua_grey (9) WLcopyI topped this off with Chill Zone top coat. I should have used two coats to hide all the ridges in my nail. I don’t do much buffing of my nails and I didn’t use a base coat for this design, so one little coat of top coat over my naked nail didn’t hide imperfections as well as I’d have liked. Oh well. That’s what I get for not using a top coat I guess.

Polka Dot Waves

16 Jan

There was no rhyme or reason to this dotticure.  I didn’t have much of a plan.

Lizard or Sesame Seeds?

7 Jan

I can’t decide if I see lizard skin or sesame seeds when I look at this mani.  What do you see?
Lizard (4) WLcopyI wanted to play with Color Club Edie some more because it’s such a fabulous color. And OPI Swedish Nude was already out, so I used it too.  I’m not in love with the results, but it’s a pretty cool look.Lizard (9) WLcopy

I don’t know why it looks so lizard-ish to me.  I guess it just looks kind of scaly.  Do you see reptiles or hamburger buns? 😉
