Turquoise Nails

Wow, it's been a little while, hasn't it?? Sorry for the lack of posts--to be quite honest, it's just because I'm too lazy to write about my nail art! I'll try to do better!

I got inspiration for this mani from IG user cashmere_dreams

I started with a base of China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle. When dry, I stamped the image from Uber Chic plate 5-03 with Mundo de Uñas Black; after stamping all the nails with the black, I cleaned the plate and used Mundo de Uñas Bronze and the same image and stamped again; I tried to offset it by flipping the stamper the other way so the lines weren't exactly the same for the second image. Finish with a topcoat!

#31dc2015 Day 30: Inspired by a Tutorial

I got the idea for these from Meliney on YouTube/Naiqnaiq on IG. See how to here:

I used Nailtini Silver Sipper as a base, then used Zoya's Ali, Jancyn, and Pippa in between the striping tape.

#31dc2015 Day 29: Inspired by the Supernatural

I love Halloween time--I'm big into SFX painting so Halloween is my faaaave! I used various polishes and stamping played for this mani, so I'm just going to post a pic of the polishes and list the plates. Some of the nails are glow-in-the-dark but they didn't photograph well, so I'm sorry they are blurry! 

Plates: Born Pretty Store BP-57, Winstonia W116, and W221. 

What did your nails look like today?? 

#31dc2015 Day 28: Inspired by a Flag

Today's prompt was inspired by a flag, so of course I picked Old Glory! 

I started with a base of OPI Alpine Snow on the last four fingers, and a base of Zoya Ibiza on the thumb. I used a striper from Shany Cosmetics in 07 (red). For the thumb, I used plate BP-L013 from Born Pretty Store and white stamping polish to stamp the thumb. I added a top coat from all nails.

Which flag were you inspired by today? 

#31dc2015 Day 27: Inspired by Artwork

I really love Leonid Afremov's artwork--it's all so bold and bright! I didn't do the painting justice but here it is! Haha! 

I did a gradient-style nail using the following polishes on the thumb and pointer fingers: 
These were the ones for the middle finger:
These were the ones for the fourth and fifth fingers: 
I painted all the details with acrylic paint, then finished with a top coat.

#31dc2015 Day 26: Inspired by a Pattern

I honestly really didn't have a clue where this was going until I already had the base color down 😂 I got this polish in my Ipsy bag this month and figured I'd try it out; it's Sephora Formula X in Ignite. I think it's a really pretty fall-ish color. 

I looked through my stamping plates and thought this design would be perfect. It's Bundle Monster number 404. I stamped the image with Mundo de Uñas 01 (White). I finished with a top coat.

#31dc2015 Day 25: Inspired by Fashion

I saw this dress in a magazine the other day and I knew it would be a gorgeous nail design! 

I started by applying fake nails. Then I added 2 coats of Zoya's Dot. When dry, I stamped an image from a Born Pretty Store plate BP-17 with Mundo de Uñas 19 (Bronze). I finished with s quick dry top coat. 

What did you use for inspiration today?
