Rainbow Manicure ♥

Hello! Are you ready for this?! Compared to my last post which made me want to scream with horror, this one makes me want to squeal with delight. I don’t want to type anything else until you see this! FYI I can’t stand the word pastel so I have omitted it from this post with my own “proper” term.

WEEEEEE!!!!!!! I love it! Doesn’t it make you want to hug a unicorn? I think this is something that would be either spring or baby shower appropriate. Now for the technique we’re going to go to one of my most FAVORITE youtuber’s Colette! She was inspired by another person on YT and I was likewise inspired by Colette but for something a little different and softer. I also wanted to show that this is doable on shorter nails.  Anyways she has a wonderful tutorial on how to do this rainbow manicure in neon’s and leopard print. It’s only 3 colors, 4 when you count your base coat. So real quick here’s what I used!

What I used:

  • Base color- OPI Alpine Snow (white)
  • Pink- Sally Hansen “Bubblegum Pink”
  • Yellow- Sinful Colors “Unicorn”
  • Blue- Sinful Colors “Cinderella”
  • Glitter on ring finger- Salley Hansen “Hallucinate”
  • Glitter on other fingers- China Glaze “Snow Globe”

So what do you think are you in love as much as I am? 😉

The Muppets Nail Art

Finally as promised! I had a lot of fun putting all of these together. I hope you all enjoy. They’re all video’s so sit back and just watch! 🙂

Fozzie Bear

Kermit The Frog

Gonzo

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….

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. 

Fruit For All

Fruity Fingers

Yummm! Who could resist? All these need now is a basket! XD

Base Coat all nails! I used OPI Nail Envy.

Apple! I put down a green base color for my background and used my largest dotting tool to make the sparkly red apple. It would probably look even nicer to outline you apple in black. I used my smallest dotting tool to make a “shiny” spot on the apple and the stem.

Grapes! My base color use was white, I used one of my larger dotting tools (not the largest)to sporadically place the grapes in somewhat of a cluster. Don’t have them too close or it will end up looking like a blob. I used my detail brush to add the curly stem and leaf.

Strawberry! Base color red. Use a darker green to make a saw toothed edge tip. To do this gently place the nail polish brush at an angle on the nail where you want the tip of the leaf to be and drag it downward off of the nail. Repeat until finish. Try not to place the brush to close to the previous leaf tip because they will just look like you did a sloppy french tip. It’s better to go a little bit farther away then you think it should just in case and then you can build it up if it needs it. For the seeds I used a yellow stripper polish and dabbed on the seeds. I used yellow because I thought it looked more like real seeds.

Watermelon!Creamy pink base color! Then start at the bottom with a dark green stripper and make a thing line int the tip of the nail. Make another line next to that one in a white. This next line is optional- pink! I did it this way because I think it looks nicer. If you don’t like it you can skip it. Now for the seeds you can use a dotting tool, I just used the black stripper brush and dabbed them on in somewhat of a row like you would see in a real slice of watermelon.

Kiwi! Base color is a shimmery lime green. make the center of the fruit “slice” by using a light green a making lines, very close together, into and oval shape. These lines don’t need to be uniform- just as long as they take the oval shape, leaving the center open. Make some seeds, same as before, using the stripper brush and dab them around the edges of the oval.

Top Coat!

Sorry there is no “Polishes Used” List this time! I did this awhile ago. My collection has grown since I’ve done this design and I’m not sure which colors where used for some of the nails. I will try to make this list later. I hope you enjoy this in the mean time while I try to get some new designs together for next week. 😀

Quick Question! Does anyone play OMGPop?

✯-☆-★ Fresh Beat ★-☆-✯

This is my own design, using my own polish that I bought with my own money. 😉

I used a vibrant pink on all the tips of the nails. I painted a black crackle polish over the pink on just my thumbs and ring fingers. Then I lined the very top part of the painted tip in a magenta.

Sorry about the little finger!I didn’t remember to fix the nick on it, oh well! LOL

Polishes Used:

  • Base Coat- OPI’s Nail Envy
  • Pink- Salley Hansen HD “Digital”
  • Black Crackle- China Glaze’s Crackle Glaze “Black Mesh”
  • Magenta- L.A. Colors Art Deco “Magenta”
  • Top Coat- Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Feel free to be creative and use other colors if you like. Have fun ! And you don’t have to use the same brand to achieve this same look.

Cherry Nails


This design was one made by Dollface22772 on Youtube Titled “Cherries Jubilee”.

This is my own variation of it. I didn’t have any of the cherry fimo slices so I had painted the cherries using a dotting tool. Also instead of using a pink crackle polish, I painted over the white edge on one corner with a red polish. Then covered it with a white crackle polish.

Polishes I Used:

  • Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
  • Top Coat: Seche Vite
  • White: Salley Hansen Xtreme Wear “White On”
  • White Crackle: Chine Glaze Crackle Glaze “Lightning Bolt”
  • White Stripe: Sinful Colors “Bad Chick”
  • Red Stripe: Sinful Colors “Be my Valentine”
  • Green Stems: L.A. Colors Art Deco “Bright Green”
