Day 23 - Inspired by a Movie

For today's inspiration I chose Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
I actually did these nails the day before the premier but never posted them.

I did all of this art with my Stride Rite nail art stripers. From L-R: French Flag, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Hedwig.
The flag is because this mani was on France's independence day

From L-R: HP Logo, Lightning Scar, Deathly hallows logo, Luna's Radish earrings, and A broomstick.

And an upclose of the characters.

I loved these, they were soo cute!!! And I loved the movie :) I am totally obsessed with Harry Potter. Actually its funny because my two favorite things are harry potter and nail polish.... as you can see by my tumblr..

Day 22 - Inspired by a Song

  I LOVE the Beatles. :) So I chose Strawberry Fields Forever as my song inspiration. 

 I used BM -212 as the green stamp as grass (or fields haha). Envy by Sinful Colors is the Green I used.
And I added this before clean up shot because you can see the E on  LOVE. my finger is too small haha. 

BM 05 is the strawberry stamp, I used Ruby Ruby by Sinful Colors.
And BM 09 is the Love stamp, I used Traffic Jam by ChG

I really love this idea actually, and if I were to wear it I would probably put the LOVE stamp on my thumb and strawberries on all the other fingers.

Day 21- Inspired by a Color

Today I chose to be inspired by the Color Blue.

I started by putting two coats of Respect the World (matte) by Nicole by OPI.

Then I added nail art on my thumbs with Curaco by Sephora.


I left my fingers all matte except for my thumb with I added Seche Vite to. 

Here is my inspiration!!! My Blue Squirrel :D 


The Polishes I used. L-R: ChG Life Preserver, Black on Black by Sinful Nail colors, White On by Sally Hansen and Curaco by Sephora. 

I Hope you liked it!!! It was a super fun mani to wear :D

Day 20 - Water Marbled

Okay don't be mad, but I have neither the time nor the resources to do a water marble in my dorm room! So here is my only water marble I have ever done, and I know I have shown it before.... but its the best I can do.

 I put a layer of White On by Sally Hansen before the water marble. 

I used Ruby Ruby by Sinful Nail colors (Red) and Fly away by Sinful Nail Colors (blue) for the water marble. 

Don't worry tomorrow will make up for today!!

Day 19 - Galaxies!!

AHH!! Its my birthday :D

I have never done galaxies before either, mainly because I felt like it looked like a lot of work. Now, I realize its really quite easy! And I am glad this was my birthday one because I love it!!

I started with a coat of Black on Black by Sinful Nail Colors. 
Then for an added bonus added Fantasy makers Glow in the Dark.

It looks pretty cool on its own here!
Then I dabbed on CND effects in Raspberry Sparkle, Crimson Sparkle, Gold Sparkle, and Jade Sparkle.

Then, to make the stars, I put a top coat over the entire nail with Twinkle, Twinkle by Sally Hansen. That was perfect because it had small square glitter and larger hexagon glitter to make the stars! 

I love it!!! I am actually still wearing it too! I want to do a lot of different galaxies now!

Day 18 - Half Moons

I have never actually liked the look of half moon mani's but I actually wore this for about 5 days!!

I started with 2 coats of Pelican Gray by China Glaze, which I thought was a beautiful gray creme. But then I took it in the sun anddd...

Bamn Hidden Shimmer!!!

It is a pretty silver shimmer!

Then I put french tip guides on the bottom of my nails.

Ew ignore the bubbles. Then I added My Kind of Kool-Aid by Cult nails.

This was my best one lol

THEN I got bored. And added spectraflair top coat to make it holographic. Pretty!! wooo holo! 

It was so pretty and I really loved having it on :)

Day 17- Glitter!!

Obviously I am on a Cult Nails kick, this is due to my awesome haul :) 

I started with 2 coats of  In the Lime Light (Neon) by China Glaze. (Looking back I wish I did 3 coats) 

Then I added a coat of Hypnotize Me by Cult Nails.

Blurry to show the sparkle!!

Bottle shot!!

It is a great green jelly base with blue and green glitter! Sooo pretty. And from what I heard, you can layer it over pretty much everything and it will look great. 

Oh and remember to enter my giveaway!!! It ends Monday 9/19 at midnight!!

Day 16 - Tribal Print

Disclaimer: I have never done tribal print before and I am not very good at being random lol

I started out with 2 coats of Cult Nails Devious Nature. No idea why I only took one picture of this... Sorry for the crappy quality.

Then I added thick lines of an off white with my striper brush.
And added random dots and stripes with a black striper brush.  

I'm not too good at it... but at least I tried right?!

Day 15 - Delicate Print

Oops my scheduling didn't work.... So prepare yourself for three posts in one day!!

Surprisingly this day has been the hardest for me to come up with....

 I started with two coats of Stiletto by Jessie's Girl. This was another buy influenced by Nouveau Cheap's blog.

It is a 'nude' that has a wonderful silver shimmer! I say 'nude' because my skin is so pale, nudes look like beige/mauve on me. 

Then I added stamp m80 with Sally Hansen's White On. 

I love this design and color combo, but I don't know how delicate it is.... but this is what I think of when I think delicate. haha :)
