Gray-Purple Gradient Nails!

Heeyyy there! How's life? Mines pretty good, bracing myself for our upcoming blizzard...kind of hoping I'll get snowed in so I can do my nails allll dayyyyy.

Today I have gradient nails for you. I felt like doing a dark wintery color combo, so I went gray to purple. And of course added some sparkle on my ring finger, silver to purple to match!

Abstract Nails!

Hello!!!

Today I have a weird mani for you, I was looking to Pinterest for some inspiration and found this cool abstract painting and I loved the colors. So I tried to do a similar thing on my nails, and I think it came out pretty good, it just looks kind of funny on nails.

Snowflake Nails!

Hiiii! I'm in my basement freezing my butt off right now posting these appropriate nails. Snowflake nails!

I actually did these back in 2014, before my Christmas & NYE eve manicures, but obviously I had to share those first. These were inspired by this mani I saw on Pinterest. (Hers are way better) I need some snowflake practice. I can't get as detailed as I'd like. Mine look mostly like stars...which is fine.

I did a coat of the nude color, and sandwiched some of the snowflakes between the nude for some depth of field.

Christmas Nails!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday. We had a huge breakfast with a ton of friends and family this morning, and I'm just killing some time before going to my aunt's for the rest of the day. So it's the perfect time to post my Christmas mani!

I can never decide on one theme for my Christmas nails, so I always end up doing a mash-up. This year I did a Christmas tree, Rudolph, plaid, a snowman and snowflakes. My snowman's mouth is a little funky because I smudged it and tried to fix it before my family came over last night. My right hand one looks even worse, hahaha. Looks like his eye is melting off.

Purple & Gold Stripe Nails!

Hey guys! I'm still here, don't worry. Just being a slacker lately... #sorrynotsorry #mybasementiscold.

I have some purple & gold nails today. I won two Butter London colors in a giveaway a long time ago, and I realized I still had never used the purple one, so I decided to do something simple with them, and an Essie. So I did two stripes with some glitter in between them. Nothing too crazy!
