Loving Snoopy

In honor of my first Art Contest, I decided to get started on my whole list of Valentine manicures.
I've had this snoopy one on my mind for a while and thought this would be perfect to kick the contest off.
I'm not artist by any means but Snoopy turned out pretty cute I must say.

Although, on my left hand (using my dominant right to so the art - duh), Snoopy kind of looks like he has down syndrome or something. Or maybe baby Snoopy? Either way, totally cute for me lacking major skills!

I've also realized that my nails really do have a deep C curve to them because  I had to take two pictures of two angles just so you could actually see both sides of snoopy's face :-s

I started off with SH Whirlwind White, then sponged on Avon Spendid Blue (super gorgeous!)
Then all acrylics after that, which you can see my strokes.

And yes, I did a different pose on my right hand.
Thats right! I managed to get a picture of my right hand (after about 15 snaps!)

Purple, purple and more purple + Tutorial

Yea, its purple manicure time. I did these 2 nights ago and they're still chip free. Hence why I didnt post a new mani last night. Check out these purdy mamas with tutorial to follow.

For this manicure, grab a light base color.

Then add a sparkly tip in a darker but same color glitter.
I chose Color Club Tru Passion.

Then with an even darker shade in the same color, draw a stripe across the bottom of your glitter edge.
I chose Love & Beauty Dark Purple.

Then with that same darkest color, draw 45 degree angled stripes. I did 2 on each finger except for my middle finger as that is the accent nail.

Then take a silver glitter and go between your dark stripes. I also added a stripe below the purple one on the accent nail.
Here i chose Kiss nail art paint in silver.

Then I added a light purple fimo bow on the accent nail along with a clear rhinestone on its center.
Then a light purple and clear rhinestone on every other nail.
Chose two color rhinestones that match what colors you chose.

Top coat and you're done!

Doesn't this look like it belongs in a glue on box in the stores? I LOVE it!

Foils - RM Inspired Tips

Once I saw this post by Robin Moses, I knew I had to try it. 
I instantly went onto dollarnailart and bought a bunch.
The haul came in yesterday and OMG = heaven!
 (haul post coming soon).

These foils are just amazing. I wish I had bought more.

Anyway, I started with Finger Paints Asylum just to give my stained nail some bling lol.
Then I randomly and not perfectly on purpose, painted a black tip. Letting that dry, I randomly swipped the foil glue and let that dry about 2 minutes then added 3 different foil colors in Blue Fuchsia and purple. I also added black dots for a pretty accent.

Seriously, you must check out this site! Too bad my camera isnt better to catch the awesomeness of these colors!

Animals - Turtles

More fun critters! Multi-colored turtles!
I used almost all colors from my new Avon haul (post coming soon)
and also had some inspiration, so this idea isnt me.
I also added some Finger Paints Flakies to the shells for more purdiness!

Grave Digger

Wow holy delayed posts! Not by my choice. After the accident tuesday night, we ended up losing power and internet, phone and tv service until last night. With no power a few of the nights, I did skip a few manicures. 

Purple holo base color, red rhinestones for headlights, skull from flag.
 Monster Jam Grave Digger nails. These didn't turn out as cute as I wanted but still kinda cool.

Girly Bones

Yet another inspired manicure.
I almost passed on doing my nails last night as I was emotionally wore out from dealing with our neighbor getting into a quad accident. He is fight for his life right now and he's only 28 years old. Prayers for this young guy please everyone!

So I ended up with this manicure, nothing to do with the accident, just a mani I saw Professional IDQ's Bad Ass Funky Skulls. It was so cute! Im actually totally loving her channel!

 I added red rhinestones to the bog skull bones. This red is acrylic paint and it took like 4 coats to get it this red! I think my red has issues because it just doesnt have coverage like I expect acrylic paint to have. The white did just fine though. Go figure :-) I used Color Club Revvvoloution for the background swirls.

And the base color before the art. Super pretty! (although it would kick ass with a top coat)
Black base with micro red glitter, 3 coats for total even coverage.
Color Club Red Velvet
