Here's another design with hints of a black tinted base; it turned out quite different from the types of looks that I typically do. For the base of the hourglass shape I used China Glaze Stone Cold, which was a bit of a mistake because this particular polish is matte and didn't level out with the top coat very nicely, meaning that it looks a bit bumpy, even though it really isn't. I outlined this shape with Zoya Anais and used Color Club Santa's Cinnamon for the red design.

Basically this design came to be because I wanted to play around with Zoya Maria-Luisa, a gold flake glitter. The base is China Glaze Nice Caboose! and I randomly threw together the gold design with China Glaze Champagne Bubbles.

I don't think I've done an animal print in over a year, even though you can never go wrong with zebra print! All the polishes I used are from the Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neon collection; they are 'Til The Record Stops, Meet Me At The Rink, Diggin' The Dancing Queen, Feathered Hair Out To There, Hot-Hot-Hot Pants, and Disco's Not Dead. I also added a little bit of holo glitter with Orly Shine On Crazy Diamond, even though they mostly look like weird specs on my nails in the pictures.

I don't usually like doing ruffians because I think they look a bit odd, almost like your nail is slipping off your finger, but I do like the little peek of glitter, similarly to what I did here. The glitter is China Glaze Point Me To The Party, the pink is Color Club Raspberry Rave and the purple is Color Club Biscuits & Jam. These polishes were so bright that they photographed horribly.

For this design, I used a vinyl to get the shape of the bolt and then free-handed the rest of the lines. The creme purple is China Glaze Tart-y For The Party, the holo stripes are Zoya Finley, the bolt outline is Color Club Beyond, and the glitter is China Glaze Brand Spankin' New Year. When I initially got this glitter I was super disappointed in it, but this mani might have changed my mind!

Hello! The inspiration for this manicure was a damask design, but it ended up not really looking that much like damask to me. I love the design on my middle finger, but there was no way I was going to paint that three more times, so I simplified it a bit for the other nails. I used Color Club Meet Me At The Rink and a white for the gradient, and the design is done with Xtreme Wear Royal Hue.

For this design I made decals by putting a vinyl on my silicone mat and then randomly putting drops of nail polish all over the final. Then, to marble it around I squished the wet polish blobs with a stamper. When I put the decal on my nails I thought there was a bit too much white space, so I added some random rows of dots to fill in the design. I used China Glaze Too Yacht To Handle, China Glaze Let's Jam, Color Club Teal For Two, Color Club Biscuits & Jam, and Essie Hide & Go Chic.
