Flamin' Nails

I think there used to be this appetizer at Chili's called Bloomin' Onion or something...yeah, I'm not good at titles. But this manicure is pretty cool! Err, hot!

The right hand! (In case you couldn't tell...?)
I used image or stamp plates with this awesome flame design to complete this look. I started with a base coat of NYC Taxi Yellow Creme. Then I created a gradient, using a makeup sponge to apply Sinful Colors Cloud 9 (an sheer orange shimmer) and just a dab of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Red Carpet on the tips of my nails. For the ring fingers, I used a base of NYC Cashmere Creme and built the gradient with Sinful Colors Love Nails and Midnight Blue. I also added a dab of Sally Hansen Extreme Wear Golden-I and White Out here and there to the red and blue nails respectively.

The left hand! I like this one better, what do you think?
Next I used a flame design on my MASH plate to apply flames to each nail, using Red Carpet and Midnight Blue. Lastly, I finished with a top coat. (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Invisible) I really wanna get myself some Seche Vite, but I just bought a few bottles of the Sally Hansen clear coat (they were on sale at Target!). By 'just,' I mean, of course, a couple months ago...

Frozen Inspired Elsa and Anna Nail Art

For the first time in forever, I've had time to do my nails! And my roommate's nails! (Inspired by Disney's Frozen)
Frozen-inspired nail art! 

I was actually planning on putting snowflakes on my nails, but when it came down to it (I made some decals using the plastic bag/decal method but wasn't completely satisfied) I decided to go with a more whimsical approach. All in all, I think it came out great (so sparkly!) and then of course, proceeded to do something similar for my roommate.


Happy New Year!

And happy February! Haha.

So last fall was a really busy semester for me, as you could probably tell, since there was no posting from me! But I should have time to post a little more in the next few months, so be on the lookout for new manicures.

Anyone see any good movies lately? I saw Frozen about a month ago and I loved it! There were some really great moments and really catchy songs. Hopefully before winter ends, I'll try a Frozen-inspired manicure. If you have any ideas for new nail art, let me know in the comments section.

Also my dad just got two puppies and I don't get to meet them for three months but I saw pictures and they're soooooo adorable!

Thanks for reading! (Be on the lookout for more coming soon)
