Walk on the wild side


These ones are a wee bit messy but you get the idea. I used a small paint brush to add stripes of super bright polishes. I stamped in top of that with a Konad stamp. Ta da!

Dotting Tool to the rescue.


This is a base coat of Loreal Penthouse Pink. I wasn’t in love with the shade so I brightened it up with some white and real dots. Hope you like it!

Swatch: OPI San Tan-Tonio


I was doing some nail art and realized that I had never swatched this color. In my opinion, this is a must have. The formula is perfect, pictured is two coats, no top coat.
The color is the perfect camely tan.
Trust me, you will go back to this color time and time again.

Owl Nail Art Tutorial


For this design, you will need several colors of polish, I used OPI San-Tan-Tonio, Color Club Almost Famous, Color Club Twiggie, Sally Hanson Lacey Lilac and a Black and white.

YOu will also need dotting tools, or your prefered method of making dots. I used a small detail brush for some elements, but you could also just use the dotting tools or a toothpick.

I started with a base coat of San Tan Tonio, this color is prefection and a must have, in my opinion!


I then used a large dotting tool to add two large circles connecting in the middle, this will make the mask for the owl, I used the same color and a detail brush to add the wings.


Next I added in white with the large dotting tool.



Usinga smaller tool, I added in the black to finish up the eyes


I used yellow to add the little feet and a beak


I finished up using the detail brush to add some lilac v’s, if you don’t have a detail brush, you could also just add some polka dots.

Bold Black and White


It’s been forever!!! Here’s a simple but bold black and white design. I used a bundle monster plate and just applied the design to the top part of the nail on an angle. I love the look of the black on white. Sorry for the pinky smudge!

Monster Mash


I was getting a little tired of traditional Halloween colored manicures, so I thought I would switch it up a bit.
All the faces were done with dotting tools and a small paint brush. Skies the limit for the possible faces. Happy Halloween!

This is Halloween!


Eeeeee! I LOVE Halloween!!! And I’m really liking this cute Mani! The orange I used is China Glaze Riveting. It’s a perfect Halloween color.
I used a black acrylic paint for the detail, but polish would work just as well.
I used a dotting tool and a small detail brush for the art!

Bundle Monster Halloween Stamps


I needed a fast Mani today. Since I’m heading to a haunted house, I wanted another Halloween design.
I used almost all of the Halloween themed stamps in my bundle monster set.
The black is China Glaze Fast Track, and the stamping color is Sally Hanson Silver Sweep.
