I love lace!

I've been sooo into black lace lately.. I blame the sexy new black lace tights I got. I've always loved lace nails, and I've done them before(they didn't turn out that great), so I decided to give them another shot! I used Nicole by OPI's My Lifesaver as a base, and black acrylic paint for the lace details. I took the lace pattern on my left hand from a japanese nail magazine and just kinda winged the right hand. I really like how these turned out.. now I just gotta put together a cute outfit to go with them! I wish it wasn't so cold out lately, it's totally limiting my options, ugh.

Have a nice weekend, everyone! :)

Gold glitter fun and tribal

Hey guys! Just a small update today since I don't feel well. This is just a really simple mani I did last night.. my nails were already black, but they looked boring so I added some sparkle to 'em. I sponged some gold polish onto the tips, added some fine gold glitter polish, then topped that with two coats of the lovely Milani Gold FX! I love the way it looks.

And I like it even better mattified! This is with one coat of Essie's Matte About You. I love how soft it looks. Here's one with flash, too.

Also, here's a bonus shot of a really lazy tribal mani I did a while ago and never posted.. I didn't like it that much, but you can't win 'em all, right?

I used Nicole by OPI'S One Less Lonely Glitter as a base, then went at it with acrylic paints.

That's it for now.. hopefully I'll have something fun on my nails this weekend since I'm going to see my favorite band, Empires! :)

Lazy sunflowers

Sorry for the long absence, guys! I haven't been feeling very creative lately, plus I had other things to worry about in my life.. plus I kept breaking nails, ugh!

Anyway.. with the weather getting a little nicer, I've been feeling spring-y, and wanted something bright and simple. I love sunflowers, so I figured hey, why not! They didn't really turn out too great, but I'm giving myself a pass this time since I haven't done any nail art in a while. Besides, I like the color combo. I used For Audrey as the base, then acrylics for the art, since my yellow polishes weren't opaque enough.

Anyway.. I also wanted to say hi to my new followers, and thanks for following! You guys are awesome. :)
