Simple Bows

This was just a last minute idea I had. I was planning on doing ninjas but I messed up and didn't feel like taking off my black polish, so I decided to do the rest of my nails pink and put little pink bows on the black. The pink is Milani and the black is just a little Bonne Bell. I used a hot pink from LA Colors Art Deco for the bows, and the white dot on the bows is also Bonne Bell.
This is probably the easiest design I've ever done besides tips. I really like how they turned out.

Purple and Grey

This is the simple design I did for the first week of the spring 2011 semester. I originally painted them the base color, which is Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear in the color Gunmetal. The bottle was my sister's and I painted them at home, so when I got back to school they chipped at the top. I was going to take off the polish and paint them a whole new color, but I decided to just cover the chipped parts with my purple nail polish. Then I ended up adding a little black stripe with my Art Deco polish and here is the final result.

Moral of the story: If you really like your nail color and it chips, and you don't have that color on hand, just paint tips of a different color, and add stripe.

These were painted for my birthday. I went pretty simple with the magenta tips and just put little cupcakes on my ring fingers.

In a Dream we are Connected

These nails were inspired by my favorite band, The Smashing Pumpkins. This is one of my favorite nail designs I've ever done.

I've decided to start posting my current nail art and give my archives a rest until it's the right time of year for that design. That way I'll have more than one design to post for Halloween and Christmas if I'm still doing this blog by then (hopefully I will be and I will have at least one follower).

Bow Bracelet + ring DIY

Good evening :) Yesterday I made a leather bow bracelet and today I made a leather bow ring using my mom's ripped Nine West bag. Actually I made two bracelets and gave the first one to my sister because it was too small. I'm pretty proud of how they all came out, so I thought I'd post it here on my blog(even though nobody reads it lol).
