Magnetic Starburst

I recently rediscovered my magnetic polishes, and I've been kind of crazy about them lately. I never really used them before because there's not a whole lot you can do for nail art and I found them to be a bit underwhelming. My tests for these turned out great, however, because my nails are curved, the magnet doesn't hit my entire nail with the same strength and the design isn't as sharp. For these I used the star burst pattern from the original China Glaze magnet on magnetic polishes Color Club Hipnotic and Color Club Steel of the Night. Just to add a little something, I used star glitters from Wet N Wild Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Open Roses

Here's a simple floral design. I didn't think it would turn out well, so I only did it on two nails, but I actually like it more than I expected to and I wish I'd done a full manicure of it. The base is China Glaze Jagged Little Teal, for the floral I used China Glaze Tart-y For The Party, China Glaze Wait N Sea, and China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond. I hate photographing in this lighting, but it's the only way I could get the colors to be even close to actuality.

Thanksgiving Nails

 I don't usually do Thanksgiving nails, but it was something I was just in the mood to paint this year. I did some pastel leaves, a slice of pumpkin pie and a turkey. I used China Glaze Foie Gras, China Glaze Tart-y For The Party, China Glaze Fresh Prince-ss, Zoya Cole, Zoya Neely, Zoya Jacqueline, Zoya Arizona, and Essie Miss Fancy Pants.

Pink Fall Leaves

I always love using these colors this time of year, so I painted some fall leaves in them. I can't recall every polish I used for all the leaves, but the bases are China Glaze Nice Caboose!, and China Glaze Fresh Prince-ss.

Dotticure Design

Here's a manicure that I did over a month ago and wasn't really intending to post. I did it based on an old design that i did a while ago. I used Revlon Iconic, Essie Petal Pushers, China Glaze Nice Caboose!, and Xtreme Wear Social Butterfly.

Sunset Stripe

 Hello! I'm loving today's nails, and that's really all I have to say about them. The light pink is China Glaze Fresh Prince-ss and the gradient is China Glaze Giver's Theme, China Glaze Dune Our Thing, Zoya Thandie, and Zoya Darcy.

Doctor Strange

Here are the nails that I did for the new Marvel movie, Doctor Strange. On my ring finger is Stephen Strange himself, and on my middle finger is The Eye of Agamotto as it appears in the movie. On my outer fingers I did galaxy nails, which I based a little bit off of this poster. I forgot how frustrating it is to work with metallic polishes and these nails definitely did not turn out as well as I wanted. I do really like the galaxies though, so just focus on them instead.
