Glitter Placement Accent Nail

 Hello! Today I have a glitter placement that I did the other day. The glitter that I used comes from China Glaze Glimmer More. I was going to do the glitter placement on every nail, but I decided to switch it up a little bit. I do think that would have been better that way though. The orange is Zoya Cole, the pink is Xtreme Wear Tickle Pink, and the yellow is Color Club Macaroon Swoon.

Assorted Tape Designs

Here are some striping tape designs that I did while playing around with new polishes that I had recently purchased. The green is Zoya Tiana and the purple is China Glaze Plur-Ple. It feels like it's been forever since I've done anything with tape like this, so it was a lot of fun, especially since striping tape is probably my favorite nail art tool.

Paisley Print

I haven't done a paisley print in a pretty long time! I'm mostly pleased with how it turned out, but I think there might be a little too much blank space. The base is Xtreme Wear Painted Lady, and the details are Xtreme Wear Babe Blue and Color Club Macaroon Swoon.

Blues Water Marble

Hello! Today I have another water marble. Marbling can usually be a bit of a pain, so I only felt like doing it on two of my nails. I added some silver star studs on my pointer and pinky so that they weren't super bland next to the marble. I used China Glaze Dashboard Dreamer, China Glaze Boho Blues, China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond, and Xtreme Wear Big Teal, which is also the color on my pointer and pinky.

Open Stars Pattern

Hello. Today I have a design featuring some stars and polka dots. I'm horrible at painting full symmetrical stars, so for the most part I tried to keep them only partway on the nail. I was also initially going to fill in the empty space with smaller filled in stars, rather than dots, but they just looked like incredibly misshapen blobs. The base is Xtreme Wear Cuteapillar and the details are done with China Glaze Exotic Encounters.

 Hello, here are some simple nails that I threw together the other day. I was going to do the accent nail design on every nail, but the polish was being extremely stubborn. The base is Xtreme Wear Purple Craze and the dots are China Glaze Feel The Breeze.
