Now I can't take credit for this design as it was the clients idea haha, I really liked how it turned out. I did these for my friend Meg's birthday night out. Cute little Hello Kitty faces on the ring finger and Hello Kitty bows on all the others. I'm really keen to try this one out on myself!

What I used: Beautiful Nails in White, Ultra3 in Honolulu, Maybelline Salon Expert in Cutie Pink and another Maybelline in a different pink shade that was hers and I can't remember the name of it! Hawley Manicure Pen in Black and some cute little rhinestones.

Thanks for looking, let me know what you think!

Cute little cupcakes and donuts for today's design. I'm really liking these, they're all girly and pretty hehe. I like the background as it is too but I thought it was too simple to post on here because of the other stuff I've uploaded in the past. 

Left Hand

Right Hand

That cupcake is a bit messed up but I really like the donuts on this hand so I had to share.

What I used: Glossyblosso in Mat Rose and Hawley Manicure Pen in Hot Pink for the background. Ultra3 in Spring Fling, Honolulu, and Bo Peep, Rossburn in Lilac, Satin in Shade 15, and 2 and Hawley Manicure Pen in Black.

Thanks for looking! Let me know what you think!

For the graduation of my Cert II in Make-Up and Nails (which was a while ago now lol) I had to do a full look, I chose to do GaGa because I adore her. I did a pink and purple circa 2008 GaGa look and these are the nails I "designed" to go with the lightning bolt make-up.

What I used: ChiChi (the name has worn off) as a base, white, pink and black acrylic paint, Ultra3 in Purple Passion as well as a lovely Roseburn unnamed shimmer pink. Various rhinestones in all shapes and sizes were thrown on too!

I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

I'm really very pleased on how this came out, I started out doing something different then changed my mind and I'm glad I did. I really love the colours of this design. I love pink roses with a blue backdrop. I know they don't really look like roses but at least they look like a flower haha.

What I used (I used a lot for this one): BYS in Sunny Girl, Ultra3 in Honolulu, Sirray in 109 and Revlon in Pure Pearl for the yellow nails.
SportsGirl in Curiouser, Revlon in Magical and Pure Pearl for the blue nails.
Flowers: White acrylic paint for a base, Ultra3 in Bo Peep, Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in Platinum, an old unnamed, unknown brand in a light pink. Moss (unnamed) and Ultra3 in Lagoon.

All in all, 12 polishes for this one!
Let me know what you think!

At the suggestion of my man-friend I painted some Spider-Man nails. I think they're okay...the thumb/spider is good but I'm not too sure about the rest. Oh well, it was some good practice anyways.

What I used: Orly in Fairy Godmother for the base, Sirray #48 for the tips and Hawley Nail Art Pen & Brush for the spider and webbing.

Thanks for looking!

I love these nails, I think this will soon be my go to design when I can't think of anything else. It looks super cute and it's super easy! Just a few stripes and a Konad stamp and you're done!

What I used: Orly in Fairy Godmother, BYS in Tempt Me Tangerine, Ultra3 in Honolulu, Moss (unnamed), SportsGirl in Blue Lagoon, Roseburn (unnamed) and Maybelline New York in Cutie Pink. Over all that I used the Konad image plate m57 with the Special Black Polish.

I really do love this design. I'll have to try out a pastel rainbow next time!

I love Nintendo and Mario and I've wanted to do some kind of design like this for a long while but I've been too chicken. Last night I bit the bullet and just did it. I'm really pleased with the outcome of these nails. I think they came out great! I can't wait to do more like them in the future!

What I used; SportsGirl Nail It in Curiouser, Unnamed Moss colour and Revlon 020 Pure Pearl sponged lightly over the blue. For all the items I used acrylic paints. Topped it off with a few top coats to seal it up.

Thanks or looking!

Another quick design, I didn't want to do too much to it with this holographic polish as a base. It would just look too much!

What I used: Unnumbered Sirray Holographic polish and acrylic paints.

Wow this was a lazy/super quick update!

I really loved this here mani, I think it's way cute. I'll totally do it again, or at least some oranges! It was fun to paint and quite simple too :)

What I used: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in Platinum with an old un-numbered Beautiful Nails coral orange sponges over it. BYS in Tempt Me Tangerine and Ultra3 in Honolulu and white acrylic paint for the oranges and lemons.

I have a question for you too! Do any of you have any suggestions for some designs? I had a list of what I wanted to do but I can't find it now. Besides, I'd like some fresh ideas.

Also, I have 24 followers, when the heck did that happen!?! Thanks so much everyone!!!
