Essie Strawberry Shortcake w/ OPI I Lily Love You for Pink Wednesday

It’s like a 12-year old girl birthday party overload of obnoxious pink, a from-the-invitations-to-the streamers type pink. The almost headache-inducing pinkness of this manicure was clearly made for a Pink Wednesday post, so I saved it to pull out today. It starts with Essie’s Strawberry Shortcake, a very frosty kind of late eighties pink color. That's some goddamn awesome nail art right there. Spellbinding Nails. Hey Guys Here is another festive manicure for you all today!.

31 Day Challenge: Day 25 (Inspired By Fashion) - Nails and Noms

I can’t believe we’re at day 25 of the 31 Day Challenge, it’s going by so incredibly fast! Today’s nails are supposed to be inspired by fashion. My knowledge of fashion designers is rather limited so I was initially stumped on what to do for this manicure. Then my friend Jen showed me the “Baroque Angels” shoes by Alexander McQueen, and I knew what I had to do! These are the shoes that inspired my manicure for today: Image Credit - Velvet Honey Jar The detail on McQueen’s shoes is simply AMAZING!

Okay, so we’re only three weeks in to this whole thing and I’m already showing you a tame look after I totally promised some of you that I’d do a newsprint nail tutorial this week.

Get Yo’ Nails Did

Newsprint we can do next week, but for right now I wanted/needed a manicure by a professional. As I told you in the first “Get Yo’ Nails Did”, it’s important to include real manicures in your nail routine if you’re not comfortable cutting your cuticles and getting into the real work at home. I am not. I’m willing to shell out $20 bucks to have the dirty work done right, but I’m not going to splurge on nail art at the salon most of the time. As you can see from the photo above, I prefer to do a basic manicure but make it a little different by switching up the colors on my index and middle fingers. That’s another thing: Remember that, while you should always be extremely polite to your manicurist, you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for exactly what you want and to tell him/her if it’s not done correctly.

Water Marble Tutorial. Supplies: orange stick or...

Supplies: orange stick or toothpick, shot glass or cup (the smaller the circumference, the less polish you end up wasting), room temp. water, nail polish, tape (optional, but it helps with the clean up) I like to begin by prepping my nails with base coat and one coat of polish. Here I used China Glaze Innocence for a nice neutral base.

Steps: Water Marbling Tutorial. Gather all of your tools.

Water Marbling Tutorial

I forgot to list top coat, but that should also be included. You'll need at least two colors of polish (any colors) to do your water marble. If you don't have an orange stick, a toothpick or the handle of a thin paint brush will also do. If you don't have a brush to clean up around your nail, a q-tip will work. I chose a white polish as my first coat before marbling, because it makes the colors pop. The bigger the bullseye, the better. Do this quickly, before the polish dries. It might take a bit of practice to make it perfect but once you have the hang of it, it's a lot of fun and easy to do!

How I paint my nails. A Twist on the Ombre or Gradation Manicure. Tips:*Have your nails prepped with base coat applied before beginning.

A Twist on the Ombre or Gradation Manicure

*Apply the polish as soon as it is mixed. Exposure to air will cause it to thicken quickly and dry shortly after. *Mix the lightest color first and apply immediately before moving on. *Clean your brush with remover between colors to avoid streaks from previously mixed polishes. *Regarding my formulas below, I remove the brush from the bottle without wiping it against the sides and the amount that drips off equals one drop. 365 Days of Nail Art.

The boyfriend and I are finally spreading our wings and moving in together. We found an apartment we really loved today so fingers crossed. A very exciting but nerve wracking time. Fuck yeah nail art! I created this tumblr because I always end up browsing for hours before I do a new manicure, and I wanted the world's best nail art available in one place. I'm not into the average art you can get at any corner nail salon, I like the new, crazy, interesting nail art. It's the 21st century, your nails shouldn't look like the 90s! Most of the nails posted are not mine. All nails have links back to their original sources. If you're new to tumblr, you should know that the "fuck yeah" in this blog's title is not meant to offend--fuck yeah blogs are a tumblr phenomenon intended to indicate that the blog is solely dedicated to that single subject.
