Purple Floral

 Hello! I absolutely love today's nails. I tried out a bit of a different technique for this floral design, and while it didn't work out quite as easily as I thought, I think it still looks pretty nice. The base is Color Club Kiss My French. For the flowers I used China Glaze Mix And Mingle, China Glaze Let's Jam, China Glaze What A Pansy, and OPI You're Such A Budapest. The leaves are Xtreme Wear Green Thumb and Essie Navigate Her.

Tape Designs and Sponging

 Here's a random one that I did just because I got new makeup sponges and I really wanted to do a ton of sponging. I used Color Club Diggin' The Dancing Queen, Color Club Meet Me At The Ice Rink, and Xtreme Wear Perfect Pear-ing. I used gold striping tape and the color bled onto the white lines and made the nails look all gunky, unfortunately.

Meet in the Middle

 It's been forever since I've done a glitter gradient. I'm a little indecisive, so for this one I did two colors of glitter gradienting towards each other. For the base gradient I used China Glaze Mix And Mingle, China Glaze Plur-Ple, Essie Hide And Go Chic, and China Glaze One Track Mind. The gold glitter is Color Club Sultry, and the silver glitter is Color Club Sex Symbol.

Glitter Drips

I usually prefer to freehand drips, but I used nail vinyls this time so that I was able to sponge on the glitter and make it really dense and full coverage. For the gradient I used Color Club Worth The Risque, Revvvolution, and Wild At Heart. The glitter for the drips is Color Club Sexy Siren, and the outline is China Glaze Mix And Mingle.

Fourth of July Glitter Placement

This year for the Fourth of July I did a glitter placement. What else is new? I tried my best to place the glitter to look like the American flag, but I did find stars to be a bit tricky to figure out; I'm still not sure how I feel about them. The blue is pulled from China Glaze Mosaic Madness, the red and silver are just Red and Silver from the Milani Jewel FX collection, and the little silver "stars" are from Color Club Orna-minted.

Hello! I used wave nail vinyls to create two vertical gradients for this one. For the gradients I used Zoya Blu, OPI You're Such A Buda-Pest, Color Club Macaroon Swoon, and Zoya Neely.

Here's a fun and simple design I did using lightning shaped nail vinyls. The silver is Xtreme Wear Celeb City, the pink outline is Milani Digital, and the rest is Zoya Aurora.
