Wavy Lines

Hi! Here's a manicure that I threw together not too long ago. I originally intended on adding a bit more to the design, but I liked how the nails looked just like this. I used China Glaze What A Pansy and Grass Lime Greener. I think the colors look a bit witchy... they're pretty bright and fun though!

Matte Tribal Design

Hello! Here is a matte tribal print that I painted using acrylic paint! I originally had this glossy, but it just didn't look at nice as it does matte. The polish that I used for the base is Xtreme Wear Peach Beach. The matte topcoat is Essie Matte About You.

Gem Bordered Nails

I've been becoming more and more obsessed with gems lately, and I really wanted to play around with some of the more colorful ones that I own. I was so in love with my last gem bordered manicure that I wanted to do it once more. For the base I used China Glaze Haunted. I wasn't crazy about this alternative color scheme, but it has grown on me a bit.

Quatrefoil Manicure

I painted my first quatrefoil mani not too long ago, but I enjoyed putting the design together so much that I wanted to give it another go. This time I used a very dark teal and pink chrome. The pink is Xtreme Wear Pink Satin and the base is Nails Inc Kensington, which is so dark that it looks black in most lighting. I think it turned out alright, but I still had trouble getting the shapes even.

Gem Checkered Accent Nail

Ever since I wore this manicure, I've been really eager to play around with more designs using nail gems. I ended up doing a checkered design using square gems. I had to make it an accent nail because I wasn't sure if I had enough gems for a full manicure and I didn't want to risk it. The base that I used is Zoya Storm.
