Day 11: Fash Life

Today I kinda just did my nails as fast as I could to make this post cus I was in a hurry. This design is suppose to have hand written words of famous fashion cities. Since I am from Cali I just wrote CALIFORNIA. It's a pretty cool and simple idea, I just wasn't feeling it today.

Colors I used:

Santee "Beach Blue"

Santee "Neon Pink"

Sinful Colors "Innocent"

Sinful Colors "Dream On"

Day 10: POW!

Onto Day 10. "Pow" nails. This is just too much fun. I have done these explosion nails before but, just to accent a nail. I like the look of the primary colors instead of all the neons that I would usually use.

 I will defiantly be using more of these in future manis. There is just so much you can do with this like different patterns in the backgrounds and different color combos.

The colors I used:

Sinful Colors "Ruby Ruby" & "Snow me White"

OPI "No room for the Blues"

Sally Hansen "Mellow Yellow"

China Glaze "Starboard"

Day 9: 90's Hip Hop

I am on day 9 now of my challenge. Today's post is called "90's Hip Hop".

This design was kinda hard to do. As perfect as I wanted to try to make the lines I think that being imperfect helps make up this design. I ended up using different colors than the book. I tried using a teal but the pink ended up eating up the color and turning it into more of a purple.

These are the colors I used:

Base Color: Julie G "My Horoscope Says..."

Julie G "Bikini"

OPI "Fly"

Sally Hansen "Green with Envy"

Day 8: Letterhead

Happy Memorial Day. I don't have a Red, White, & Blue post today but I do have Day 8 of my Wah Nail Art Book Challenge.

Today's nails are done in "Letterhead". This look is way cool and can be done in so many different ways. I didn't venture out on my own ideas though because it was too hard to decide.

Colors I used:

China Glaze "Sunset Sail"

Sinful Colors "Ruby Red"

Day 7: Basketcase

This post is really late. I had to go to Costco this morning and then took my kids to the Strawberry Festival. Anyways,

Today's nail design was "Basketcase". The book is done in a blue color. I thought that it would be fun to do it in a gradient though. I stuck with the same color though and made it a tad more interesting.

The Colors I used:

Pure Ice "French Kiss"

OPI "No room for the blues"

Day 6

Today's post is from day 6 of my Wah Nail Book Challenge. It features "Camouflage" nails.

I used different colors than what the book tells you to use because I could help but add my own twist to this. When I first started the challenge I wanted to stick to doing each project by what the book said and I tried to use the same colors as they indicated.

If you have the book then you know that this is far from the colors that they tell you to use and I also added an extra color. I am happy with the outcome.

Colors I used:

Base Color: Sally Hansens "Wet Cement"

Sinful Colors:"Dream on"

Nina Ultra Pro "Fuchsia Rage"

Sally Hansen ""Black Out"

Day 5

I have been doing a 25 day nail art challenge for myself. Since I got The Wah Nails Book of Nail Art,
I decided to do their nail art projects, one each day until I've done them all.

 So far I am on Day 5, and today's Nail Art Project is Half Stripes.

I used Orly: La Vida Loca... which I love love love! Pink, Black & can never go wrong with this color combo.


So, This is my first post on this new Blog.
I've been tumblring for the past few months now and I love it because I can share my love for nail art and discover others that have my same passion.

I will be posting soon. For now you can view my stuff on my tumblr
