Woven Pattern

Hello! To do this design, I made stripes of both colors of polish on a silicone mat. When the stripes had dried, I peeled them off the mat and cut them to size so that I could weave them together on my nails, securing them with clear polish where I could as I went along. I used Color Club Biscuits & Jam and Color Club Teal For Two.

Green Holo Bursts

Here's a design I did to utilize some new nail vinyls and polishes.The primary green is Zoya Merida, the bursts are outlined in Color Club Kismet, with dots of Milani Hi-Tech in the centers. The surrounding dark creme green is OPI Here Today... Aragon Tomorrow.  I was initially going to do this design on every finger, but I wasn't sure how much I would like it and I also wanted to show off more of Merida.

Holo Triangles

Hello! For these nails I started off with a vertical gradient of Color Club Cosmic Fate, Color Club Miss Bliss and Color Club Eternal Beauty. For the triangles I made full nail decals using a silicone mat, a nail vinyl, and Color Club Beyond. One thing that I had noticed which I had never really considered before is that the base polishes lost their linear holo through sponging on the gradient. Because these are holo nails, prepare for more pictures than really necessary.

New Year 2017

Happy New Year! Once again, I had to continue with my tradition of doing the simplest possible design for the new year, which is to paint the upcoming year. For this manicure, I made decals for the numbers using my new silicone mat. I honestly think that the numbers would have been neater looking if I had just painted directly onto my nails,  but I really wanted to play around with the mat. I used Zoya Finley and Zoya Aurora for the base, and the numbers are Milani  and Color Club Worth The Risque.

Cute Christmas

These are my last Christmas nails of the year, and I decided to just go with the basics, a tree, a gift, and candy cane stripes. For this, I used Revlon Posh, Revlon Cherries In The Snow, Xtreme Wear Perfect Pear-ing, Xtreme Wear Pop Chart, For the glittery tree I used KB Shimmer Christmas Now, and the glittery present is Maybelline Precious Pearl.

Subtle Holiday

 Here's another holiday manicure, although the only thing Christmas about it is the holly leaves, so it's pretty subtle. I used Zoya Storm, Zoya Blaze, Zoya Logan, and Color Club Worth The Risque, which has the slightest of holo.
