Wolf Galaxy Studded Nail Art

Hey guys! Long time no see! I recently spent a huge chunk of time learning how to use new video editing software. As many of you know, I use Adobe Photoshop to edit my photos. I absolutely love Adobe products so I decided to try out some of the other programs they offer. I tried (and fell in love with) Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects. They are very different from the program I was using previously (Sony Vegas Movie Studio) so it took quite a bit of time to learn the new layout and tools. I'm totally loving how my videos are looking now. They seem much more professional than before and I have sooo many more options. I guess you say Vegas Movie Studio was strangling my creativity.

Okay, okay... Enough of this software nonsense! Let's discuss nail art! I know that's what you're all here for. ;)

This design was inspired by an outfit I put together from Deb Shops! To see the outfit check out the video below. The video also includes a tutorial for this design!

I'm really happy with how the wolf nail turned out. I did it to match the leggings I was wearing. I was afraid it wasn't going to look right, but it was much easier than I expected. I kept it pretty simple so everyone else can try it as well! I was originally going to keep the galaxy nails plain, but decided last minute to add a ton of studs in a half moon shape to match my boots. I'm pretty much in love with it. I've been really addicted to anything with studs lately. I just think they're so cute! On the thumb and the pinky I have the aztec/tribal pattern that was found on my sweater cozy and I really like the contrast of the super shiny silver and black.

If you couldn't tell, I'm pretty proud of these! What do you guys think? Are you going to give them a try? If you do, I'd love to see them on Twitter and Instagram!

    the wonderful world of mixed media, I have come across a mixed media
    medium that I had not heard of before.
