Kermit The Frog

Well there you go! Tell me, are you a fan of the Muppets? If so, which is your favorite one?

I will update in a few days of the items used….

Batik Inspired

For those who like to quilt or sew or may recognize the term batik. For those who don’t- it’s a type of dyed fabric. To be more accurate, its a type of dying technique. Not that it’s important to the tutorial you can learn more here.  Anyways, getting back on track now. I was admiring a scrap piece of batik fabric laying around my children’s great grandma’s sewing room and thought it would make a fun nail art design.  The awesome thing I think about batiks is that not one single square inch is exactly the same as any other.  Some places may be shaded a like but not as if it was patterned. (BEHIND the pattern! You know what I mean :P) I had a lot of fun making this video! I hope you enjoy!

What I Used:

  • “Medium” Puple: Sinful Colors “Verbena”
  • Magenta: Essie “Big Spender”
  • Dark Purple: Pure Ice “No Means No”
  • Shimmery Purple: Sally Hansen X-treme Wear “Virtual Violet”
  • Pinky Purple: Sinful Colors “Let Me Go”
  • Light Pink for DOTS:  Nicole by OPI “Kim-pletely In Love”

Tools:

  • A porous sponge ( You can use a regular cosmetic sponge but I like the other better)
  • Tweezers, for the sponge.
  • Dotting tools ( Or hair pins, sewng pins, toothpicks…you get the idea)

So for those of you paying attention- look up EpicMealTime on youtube!  Take a wild guess at what the next design I’m working on next. 😀

Gone Batty!

  Here’s another Halloween design you can do- I promise this one is a lot less steps! XD

Now hopefully you all liked that this one was much shorter. If you don’t have a crackle polish you can always fake it with a plain black polish by dabbing square-ish shapes instead. If you have a plain black stripper this effects comes out even better.

Items Used:

  • Orange: Sinful Colors “Summer Peach”
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Black Crackle: China Glaze “Black Mesh”
  • Yellow: Sinful Colors “Morning Breath”

Here is a picture with different color variations. The eyes streaked a little bit due to using cheaper topcoat! I’m trying to save my more expensive stuff for my own nails! ;D The silver crackle was painted on from left to right & also from right to left!

Jeepers Creepers!

In the spirit of Halloween and everything spooky and fun, I came up with this eye popping design. XD Apparently I like puns.

♫♪ Jeepers creepers! Where’d you get those peepers? Jeepers creepers where’d you get those eyes?♪♫ Maybe I’m just old, but does anyone else remember that song? I heard it in an old black and white cartoon. And I don’t think it was Casper either…. Or was it?

Also if anyone is wondering about the cookie- it’s my famous “Less Chocolate Chips, Chocolate Chip Cookies”. I make them this way because as much as I like chocolate chip cookies- I really don’t like to bite into my cookie and see a center filled with chocolate. I’m weird, I know.

So anyways onto instructions for this design. Which happens to be my first video tutorial!!!!!! XD

Just to add into the video a little bit- for the pupil you could make a slit pupil like a cat or snake! 😀

List of Items Used:

  • White Nail Polish: OPI “Alpine Snow”
  • Wet n’ Wild Fantasy Makers Glow-in-the-dark polish
  • Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
  • Acrylic Paints:
    • Black: Folk Art “Pure Black”
    • Navy: Folk Art “Navy”
    • Light Blue: Jo Ann’s Craft Essentials “Baby Blue”

Sorry I didn’t get a better picture of the brushes. They’re nothing special, just cheap brushes I got from Jo Ann’s. You can use whatever sizes you feel comfortable with.
