Fall Dotticure

Hello! Today I have a fun dotticure using two sizes of dots. I didn't actually intend for this to be such a fall look, but after wearing it for a bit I noticed that it really fit the Halloween theme. The base is Essie Navigate Her, and the dots are China Glaze Giver's Theme and Zoya Thandie.

PNMC: Matte

This week's Pick N Mix Challenge prompt's are 60s and matte/texture. I decided to go the matte route. I used China Glaze New Birth for the base. Then I dotted on chevrons using China Glaze Givers Theme, Zoya Shelby, Xtreme Wear Raspberry Rave, Xtreme Wear Berry Juicy, Xtreme Wear Vibrant Violet and China Glaze Sweet Hook. The matte topcoat I used was Essie Matte About You.

PNMC: 3 Color Gradient

It's week two of the Pick N Mix Challenge! This week I'm doing the 3 color gradient prompt. For this manicure I used three Color Club halos, Cosmic Fate, Eternal Beauty, and Over The Moon. I did a dot design on my ring finger using Color Club Revvvolution. I was going to put the dots on every nail, but I ended up not liking it that much, so it became an accent nail. Sorry there are a lot of pictures, I just think the halos are really awesome.

52 Week Pick N Mix Challenge: 2 Color Gradient/ Teal

Hello! Today I am beginning the Crumpet's Nail Tarts 52 Week Pick N Mix Challenge. This weeks prompts are two color gradient and/or teal. For this manicure I've decided to incorporate both prompts. For the base I used a teal, Color Club Age Of Aquarius. Then I placed striping tape on that and sponged on a gradient with China Glaze Feel The Breeze and China Glaze All Aboard.

Disney Nail Art: Frozen

Hello! Today my manicure is inspired by the movie Frozen! When I did my Disney nail are series last year Frozen had not come out yet, but I've been wanting to do nail art for it ever since I saw the movie. On my pointer is Hans' outfit, and my ring finger is Elsa's famous ice dress. For my ring finger I did the detailing on the dress that Anna wears the majority of the movie, and on my pinky is Kristoff's outfit. Last but not least, on my thumb is Olaf!
Pointer: Hans' vest is mostly Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue and his scarf is Xtreme Wear Raspberry Rave.
Middle: Elsa's dress is Xtreme Wear Breezy Blue with NYX Silver Glitter and China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond with Sally Hansen Bling-Tastic on top.
Ring: I frankened pretty much all of the colors on this nail except for the gold, which is OPI Golden Rules!
Pinky: The base is Revlon Icon with other shades of grey randomly sponged on. The belt part is China Glaze Seduce Me, Grass is Lime Greener, and What A Pansy.
Thumb: For the base I did a gradient using Zoya Blu and LA Splash Blowfish Blue. The carrot is Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed.

Zebra Print and Zoya Aurora

Zoya Aurora is one of my all time favorite polishes and I was just really in the mood to wear it! It's been ages since I've done any kind of animal print, so I threw some zebra stripes on using Xtreme Wear Celeb City.

Many Many Dots

 Hello! Today on my nails I have a ton of dots. I did a manicure like this a little while ago, found here, and I wanted to try it again, but this time using a sort of color scheme. For this mani I used so many blue, pink, and purple polishes that I could never name them all. I like how it turned out, but I feel like there aren't enough larger dots towards the top.
