Neon Gradient with Stars

Hello All! I bring to you another bright as hell manicure with some awesome Neons! You all know I had to stamp over it too, check it out friends...

The polishes I used for the Neon gradient are Orly Glow Stick/Circus By Andrea's Choice in Spectacle and Claire's cosmetics Hot Stuff,  all of the colors were sponged over one coat of white nail polish to make the colors pop!

Mash plate Mash-49 for the stars.

I hope you guys like this! Thank you to MrsLochness on Instagram for being the inspiration for this manicure! If you have an IG account definitely look her up! She's amazing!!

Hot Pink Roses

Hey guys! Tonight I did some super bright nails for ya!  I haven't done hot pink in a while and Pool Party from China Glaze is the perfect pink!

China Glaze Pool Party/Orly Liquid Vinyl on my ring finger/ Hard Candy Black Tie Optional for the glitter on top of the hot pink. P.S., I am officially obsessed with Black Tie Optional.

The plate I used for the flowers was BM-232  with A Pool Party and White polish gradient. My Nubs are growing so fast, I even filed them down a bit today.

Thank you for reading friends, I hope you aren't sick of all the black and white glitter lately. Have a great day!

Owl Manicure

Hello all! I am back at you guys with some more free hand nail art! I was inspired by the very talented Instagram user PlayingWithMyPolish to do this cute owl manicure. Check it out!

This manicure was all done with a few different sized dotting tools. I wouldn't be able to function as a Nail Artist without my dotting tools, if you don't have any GET SOME!

China Glaze Sweet Hook for the base, a gorgeous light lavender creme.

I hope you guys like these, I love owls and I love purple so I had to try this color combination out. :) You might have noticed that I chopped my nails down, It was a long time coming. I do still have some saved posts with long nails, so if you see that don't think it's fakies or something! Thank you for reading I hope you guys have a great day!!
