Galaxy Nails

Hey everyone! This blog post is a little different than my usual posts. I'm doing this from my iPhone because I currently don't have a computer. I have no idea how large or small this photo is going to be so I hope it's not microscopic and that you can actually see it. So frustrating. Both my PC and Mike's Mac crashed on me. The Mac can't keep Photoshop or Premiere open and my SD card reader on my PC is fried. I ordered a new computer this past weekend and it will be here around the 19th of this month. I'm basically checking the status of my order every day, multiple times, because I'm so impatient and excited to get it. Anyway... Nail art... That's what you're here for.

This nail art was done very late at night. I didn't record the process nor did I write down what polishes I used. Yikes, I know. I'm sorry! I had no intention of them turning out this awesome and then... BOOM. Awesome nails.

The galaxy nails started with a black base. And then I used a makeup sponge to sponge on various colors. The silver glitter nails have two different products. First, I painted them with a silver holographic polish. One from China Glaze. It's the one from the Hologlam collection. Then I used some loose glitter from Wet 'n' Wild. It's the Fantasy Makers holographic glitter that they always release around Halloween. I picked up two bottles of it and I'm SO glad I did because it's really easy to work with and it looks awesome. 

I'll definitely have to try to recreate this design and record it for a tutorial because a lot of people have asked me to make a tutorial for it already. Hope everyone had a great week! Have a fun and safe weekend!

Simple Fall Aztec Nail Art

Hey everyone! It's pretty late, but I figured I'd get this blog post up since the matching tutorial was just uploaded to YouTube this evening. I wanted to do something simple on my nails for fall and I wanted some glitter. So, this is what happened. I'm pretty satisfied with it. It's kind of like a super simple, minimalistic Aztec style. I think this would look awesome with any color combination really. I also have some other ideas for this... but I'll keep them a secret until I actually do them. Muahaha. The suspense!

The base polish is China Glaze I Herd That. It's a perfect glitter for fall. TONS of sparkle with only two coats. Yes, full coverage in two coats. You read that correctly. It's amazing. The accent color that I used for the steps is China Glaze Kalahari Kiss. A lot of people hate this color, but I love it. I think it's the perfect yellowish polish for fall. It may not be the prettiest on it's own, but paired with other fall colors, it's perfect. I used some striping tape to section off the yellow part. You can easily use scotch tape as well. It would actually be easier in this case. I outlined it with a small nail art brush and some black acrylic paint to make it stand out a little more. For top coat I used Out The Door.

My Boyfriend Does My Nail Art

Hey everyone! Recently my amazing boyfriend Mike wanted to do my nail art for a video. That's right... He actually agreed and wanted to do my nail art. No arm twisting... no begging. It was AWESOME! I won't lie, I was kind of scared to see how my nails were going to turn out, but he did them surprisingly well! He has never worked with nail polish before this so I'm completely impressed with his skills. He's pretty darn good for a nail art newbie! 

We laughed so hard that we were both crying and I think I laughed 10 times harder while editing the footage. He was so into it! I'm definitely a proud girlfriend! If you want a good laugh and see my extremely handsome boyfriend experience the common struggles of nail polish and nail art, then make sure to watch the video below. I can guarantee you'll laugh AT LEAST once.
