简单的Zoya网点

9:00:00

曾经做过指甲修指甲的事。 你知道,无论什么,你都不能停止看 you're doing.  是的,这就是我的指甲。 它是如此简单,但是非常漂亮,我什至无法接受。 As stated in my previous Pixie Dust post, I'm in love with 的se textured polishes.  I also said that for a few weeks I might be doing some simple manicures featuring 的se gorgeous beauties.  

由于紫色是我最喜欢的颜色,因此我自动吸引使用Stevie。 没关系。 When I 已收到 的 Pixie Dust polishes, I also 已收到 Zoya's Stunning and Irresistible collection.  While all 的 colors are beyond gorgeous, Zoya Rocky has been screaming my name since I opened 的 box.  I put 的 two bottles together, and it 原为 fate.  他们注定要配对在一起。

Let's take a look at 的 manicure.




使用的颜色:
  • Zoya-洛基
  • Zoya-Stevie
  • 罪恶的颜色-白雪公主
如此简单,却如此华丽。 As I stated in my previous Pixie Dust post, 的se polishes are AMAZING to work with when it comes to nail art.  I thought since 的y dried matte, and with 的 speed 的y dry at, I thought that 的y would be impossible to dot onto a nail and get a round perfect circle.  我很快发现自己弄错了,想用Pixie Dust点缀我的所有指甲。 如此闪亮和完美。 由于还添加了面漆,因此最终看起来像是超级闪闪的抛光剂,您怎么会出错呢?

Zoya Rocky来自新推出的Summer Stunning系列,这种抛光就是这样。令人惊叹。 众所周知的事实是,我是蓝色抛光剂的吸盘,自Zoya在他们的网站上偷窥了这种抛光剂以来,就成为了必备品。 Zoya将Rocky描述为“宁静的蓝色乳霜”。 它是一种华丽的蓝色,使我想起蓝色的夏日天空。 这种抛光剂以及其他来自Stunning系列的抛光剂的惊人之处在于,我在一件大衣上覆盖了全部涂料。 我确实给所有人涂了两件外套 the nails 因为 I wanted 的 color to be extra bright.  不必穿两到三层大衣来填补秃头,这是很好的选择。我必须要用我的一些“罪恶颜色”(Sinful Colors)用这种颜色的蓝色。 总体而言:出色的配方和出色的色彩。

你怎么看? Do you have any of 的se Pixie Dust polishes or Stunning polishes?  Fan of 的 simple manicure?

直到下一篇文章,<3.

Nail Artist of 的 Month

New Feature: Nail Artist of 的 Month!

下午8:00:00

大家好! Starting in 可能 I am beginning a new monthly feature on 的 blog where I 将 feature a nail artist.  注意,我说的是美甲艺术家,而不是博主。  Well that is 因为 you do not have to have your own 博客 or Wordpress blog to be chosen!!!  If you only post your nails on Instagram的/Twitter/Facebook, 的n you still could have 的 opportunity to be 精选.

If you follow me on Instagram的, you know that I 原为 planning on hosting a Nail Art contest to pick 的 winner.  Each month, I would pick a 的me, have two guest judges pick 的ir favorite, and from 的re I would pick 的 best.  So many of you posted that you would be interested in participating, 哪一个 thrilled me! As I started planning out 的 contest, thinking of 的 logistics of how you would get 的 pictures to me, and how I would get 的 pictures to my two guest judges, I started to become very stressed.

就像我在其他帖子中所说的那样,这个博客是我的爱好,我希望它尽可能地减轻压力。 In order to eliminate that stress, for 的 time being, I 将 be selecting artists and featuring 的m here, on my Instagram的, Tumblr, 美人 等 The posts 将 be similar to a guest post where 的 artist 将 talk a little about themselves 告诉我们修指甲,并谈一点。 Then, 的ir post 将 be forever immortalized under 的 "Nail Artist of 的 Month!" page I have added to 的 top of 的 blog.  It 将 show 的 picture of 的ir work, link back to 的 post, and link you to pages where you can find 的ir personal work.

The idea of 的 contest has not been ruled out all together.  我可能会回过头去,每年做四次左右。 I really wanted to get this feature started, and in order to not delay another month, I decided selecting someone would be 的 best.

It 原为 a hard decision, but I selected 可能's feature artist and her post 将 go live on 可能 3rd (remember my OCD and having to post every 3 days lol).  I also have a few other artists in 心神 for future months, 哪一个 的y are still unaware of this.  I hope 的y say yes!

I truly hope that you all 将 enjoy this feature!!!  继续在社交网络上分享您的美甲。 I constantly am looking 通过 #thelittlecanvas and #nails4yummies hash tags on Instagram的 also despite 的 fact I have been 认真地 neglecting posting on Nails4Yummies.  等不及要看看这是怎么回事了!

Zoya Pixie防尘胶带修指甲!

9:00:00

早上好,精致的! How are you today?  我有点生气,因为修指甲的照片 seriously 不要做正义。 我为此感到沮丧,因为我试图拍摄世界上最完美的抛光剂。 这些抛光剂是新的2013 Zoya Summer Pixie粉尘抛光剂。 乌鸦,我和所有人都一样。 我曾就制作色板进行过辩论,但已经在网上看到了数以百万计的色板,因此我决定尝试与它们进行美甲。 作为主要从事美甲工作的人,我最关心的问题是“这在设计中会很好吗?” 我拒绝购买任何形式的纹理上光剂,因为我坚信它们将不适用于美甲。 Boy, 原为 I wrong.  我喜欢这些艺术抛光剂! 他们正在慢慢带回我的创造力。 

为了这 manicure, I wanted to use all of 的 Zoya Pixie Dusts to get acquainted to this new polish, 的 new colors, and how 的y would work with art/without top coat/etc.  因此,我决定用指甲油彩虹糖修指甲。 Let's take a look.  Sigh, again, forgive me about 的 pictures.




使用的颜色:

  • 罪恶的颜色-白雪公主
  • INM-北极光
  • Zoya-Solange-金色金属闪闪发光
  • Zoya - Beatrix - 柑橘 metal sparkle 
  • Zoya-命运-珊瑚金属光泽
  • Zoya-米兰达-玫瑰火花
  • Zoya-Stevie-紫色闪光
  • Zoya-自由-蓝色光芒
我喜欢这种修指甲,尽管拍照效果不佳。 完全按照我在脑海中想象的出来。 我希望Solange与Beatrix,然后Beatrix与Destiny,然后Destiny与Miranda,然后Miranda与Stevie,最后是Stevie与Liberty配对。 这样,人们可以看到彼此相邻的颜色,并且我可以拥有一种超级有趣的修指甲。 为了获得外观,我从白色底涂层开始,然后添加了Northern Lights顶涂层。  我希望我的基地像华丽的精灵一样闪闪发光。 干燥后,我用美甲胶带添加了棋盘图案。 然后,我用一个点工具填充了空的正方形。 几秒钟后,我撕下胶带,让指甲干燥。 没有添加面漆真是太不可思议了,但是最后却如此整洁!

These polishes worked so well with 的 dotting tool.  Some polishes can be tricky on 的 dotting tool and just not transfer correctly onto 的 nail.  I really 原为 worried that 的se, 特别 with 的 effect they 生产,将无法转让。 In 的ir wet polish stage, 的y apply like a jelly polish.  They are fast drying, but aren't so fast drying that you can't work with 的m.

这些颜色也给我留下了深刻的印象。 在接下来的几周内,我计划将其用于其他修指甲中作为口音,因此您可能会听到 opinion 他们一遍又一遍。 我真的以为我会讨厌Solange,因为我讨厌金抛光剂,但是它是如此的漂亮! 也许只有这种抛光剂才有这种特殊的颜料。 因为我是紫色上光剂的爱好者,所以我最喜欢的收藏是Stevie。 这个比另一个不透明。 米兰达和自由女神似乎更冻 consistency 对我来说,但仍然像史蒂夫一样干dried。 我很高兴能与Beatrix和Destiny进行更多的合作,这两种颜色我本来都希望成为“ eh”,但是再次与他们合作时,我对鲜艳的色彩感到惊讶。

For nail art, 的se polishes are a win, and even for a plain manicure they're amazing.  You might start to see some simple plain manicures from me utilizing 的m 因为 的y're literally nail art in a bottle!

你怎么看? Lover of 的 Pixie Dusts?  Lover of 的 textured look?  Have you used 的m for nail art?

直到下一次, <3

硬糖-黑色领带可选

9:00:00

亲爱的读者,星期天快乐! How are you today?  今天,我决定为您发布一个简单的修指甲,既然如此,为什么不呢? 我可以不时地休息一下指甲,对吗? Typically, I pass on 的 simple since I normally fail at 的m, but this one 原为 perfect and I had to share.

几天前,我和我的朋友出去玩,她在乞求我去商店。 我真的不想这么做,因为我刚刚完成了8小时的轮班工作,而且精疲力尽。 我想去屋子里洗个澡,画指甲,然后叫一个晚上。 My 亲爱的尽管不断乞讨,最后,她用一瓶指甲油贿赂了我。 我能说什么,我的朋友知道我的一个缺点。 我们去了购物中心,跑了她的差事,去了美容用品商店。 我没有看到想要的任何抛光剂,所以我告诉她没关系,我不需要任何东西。 然后,我们去了沃尔玛,猜猜是什么...他们用我最大的标角“ Black Tie Optional”展示了Hard Candy抛光显示器。 好吧,你只能猜测她买了我什么。 Thank you, Anne :).  啊,真不敢相信,我为此深深地爱着她。

I couldn't decide what base to use for 的 polish, so I decided to do a pastel skittle manicure.  完美...让我们来看看这个可爱的指甲。 Now 的 pictures are not 100% color accurate thanks to my stupid light box, so you can head on over to my Instagram的 to see my right hand with 的 correct colors.




使用的颜色:
  • 罪恶的颜色-糖果涂层
  • 时髦的手指-薄荷夫人
  • 莎莉汉森-粉红眨眼
  • 有罪的颜色-糖冲
  • 罪恶的色彩-独角兽
  • 硬糖-黑色领带可选
For 的 bases, I used 2 coats of each polish.  The Sinful Colors polishes from 的 Sugar Rush collection are just beyond gorgeous and 惊人。 I have to say, Sinful has stepped up 的ir game and really have created some great formula polishes.  Typically with pastels, in two coats I have lots of little streaks and end up having to put on at least one more coat to even 的m out.  All 的 Sinful Colors polishes used in this manicure only required two coats, including Unicorn 哪一个 is a rather thin yellow polish.  

Pink Blink by Sally Hansen went on a little thick, but that 原为 因为 of that annoying thick stick that holds 的 brush on.  I love 的 Insta-Dri polishes SO much when it comes to nail art, but dislike 的m for painting a base coat on.  I hear 的y are great for stamping, so I might have to try that since so far I have had no luck with any other polishes.  时髦的手指薄荷夫人是我唯一的五花八门的抛光剂,但同样,只需要涂两层外套即可。 我认为这是我最喜欢的薄荷春季抛光剂。 当它用完时,我会哭泣,因为“五个以下”不再有这种颜色。 Le sigh.

Now on to 的 best glitter polish I have 已购买 in a while.  硬糖黑色领带可选是惊人的! Now, I am not a bar glitter person, but 的 bars in this mixed with all 的 different sized white and black hex glitters just gives such a neat look.  Each nail only has one coat of 的 polish since it is so glitter packed!  我必须在十个钉子中的两个钉子上放一两个闪光片,以填补秃头,但就我个人而言,我认为这并不坏。 这个瓶子的六角形比我的指尖钉还大。 完全胜利,我建议如果您在您所在地区有硬糖出售,那就去买一瓶。 等不及要用这种美丽做一些厨房水槽修指甲了。

你怎么看? Simple Sunday 应该 be a go?  喜欢黑色领带吗? Still a fan of Skittle Manicures in 2013 or do you think 的y are going by 的 wayside?

现在,这种简单的修指甲方法已经超出了我的系统范围,是时候使用所有“小帆布”并向自己挑战一些新的指甲艺术了。 等不及要看我的想法了! Until next time, <3

渐变玛尼

霓虹渐变胶带修指甲

大家好! How are you today?  在这里对我来说一样古老。 Actually, I'm fabulous 因为 this manicure 原为 not a 毁灭性的.  The image in my 心神 actually translated onto 的 nail.  好像是这样 rarity.  Okay, maybe not.  I 应该 maybe go back and re-read my posts to figure out if it is rare or not.

This nail art idea came from not only my 心神, but 的 mind of Gabi.  很久以前当我第一次 received my nail art tape, Gabi said I 应该 do a gradient as a base and 的n use 的 nail art tape and paint 的 top coat on.  如果您不记得,加比(Gabi)是我的正式指甲检查员,尽管最近还没来,因为她早早入睡(WACK),并且在完成后总是想念我的指甲。 Well, that's a lie, she inspects 的m in 的 morning when she opens up her email and sees my message (I kind of suck and send 的m late).

I decided to do 的 same gradient I did for my neon zebras, added some INM Northern Lights, tape, and black polish, and 的se gorgeous beauties were born.  让我们来看看!!! Neons kind of 制作 的se pictures freak out and have weird looks, so please forgive my photos.




使用的颜色:
  • China Glaze - I'm With 的 Lifeguard, Sun Kissed, Flip Flop Fantasy, Splish, Splash, Hang Ten Toes
  • 时髦的手指-暴动!
  • INM-北极光 
  • 奥利-液体乙烯基
To get 的 gradient, I painted 的 neons on 的 make up sponge 的 same way I did for my neon zebra nails.  I ended up painting all 的 colors in a circle in a way where 的 one color blended into 的 next.  The yellow 原为 next to 的 green, 哪一个 原为 next to 的 blue, etc.  I don't think it would have looked as good if I put 的 yellow next to 的 purple since 的se colors don't naturally blend into each other.  After I dabbed 的 make up sponge on my nails a few times, I quickly added one coat of INM Northern Lights.  这种抛光剂干得如此之快,令人难以置信。 I never would have been able to put tape over Fairy Dust in 的 same amount of time I 原为 with this holo top coat.

I took four pieces of tape and applied 的m in different directions along 的 nail.  When I 原为 happy with 的 placement, I painted one thin coat of Orly Liquid Vinyl and let that dry with 的 tape still on.  To make 的 black darker, I added one more coat, waited about 5 more second, 的n removed 的 tape.  Each stripe that I removed, I 原为 just so incredibly amazed by 的 gradient 哪一个 原为 appearing under neath.  看起来真整洁!!!

你怎么看? Fan of 的 gradient tape manicure?  胶带修指甲的粉丝吗? 喜欢INM北极光吗?

Still loving all 的 colors.  希瑟(Heather)来自 和平,爱与波兰 posted a manicure featuring 的 more than 3 color gradient.  他们是如此有趣!!!!

直到下一次, <3.

**一世 purchased all 的 polishes used in this manicure**

番红花指甲艺术-春天来了!

"Now may 的 Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way.  耶和华与你们所有人同在。”-2帖撒罗尼迦前书3:16

I sat down to write this post, and found myself listening to 的 news and hearing 的 stories of 的 Boston Marathon explosions, and now 的 fertilizer plant explosion in Texas.  My 心神 wandered away from my nails and I became saddened for all 的 victims and 的ir families.  我查看了我的Twitter提要,因为我觉得我需要一个 distraction and found that verse, as I follow a couple of 推特 accounts who post different Bible verses 通过out 的 day.  In 的 wake of all 的 recent tragedies, I find this verse to be very fitting.  My thoughts and prayers have and are with 的 victims of all 的se tragedies, and I do pray that 的y find peace. <3 <3 Now onto 的 nails....
____________________________________________

好像Spring在这里终于结束了。 Actually, I 应该n't speak too soon, it looks like 的 temperatures are going to dip back down into 的 40s this weekend, but whatever.  Today, I 原为 able to wear a pair of flats and a short sleeve shirt, so I'm counting that as a win for today and 将 deal with 的 cold temperatures when 的y arrive again.  Despite 的 cold temperatures last week, 的 crocuses poked 的ir little heads out of 的 ground and bloomed.  If you don't follow me on Instagram的, 的n you missed 此照片 I pic-stitched together of 的 crocuses around my neighbors tree.  

For those of you who do not know what a crocus is, 的y are early Spring flowers 哪一个 come in a variety of colors such as blue, purple, white, yellow, and my favorite white with purple accenting.  Maybe it isn't accenting but 的 petals have 的se purple lines running 通过 的m.  Click 的 lil link above and I have a picture of 的m in 的 pic-stitch.  因此,当我坐下来修指甲时,无论有多困难,我都决心将番红花涂在指甲上。 I'm VERY pleased with 的 end result...




使用的颜色:
  • 基础
    • OPI-我的吸血鬼是浅黄色
  • 花卉
    • 罪恶的颜色-Amythyst,糖果涂层,无尽的蓝色,Sugar Rush和Snow Me White
    • 露华浓-野蛮
Loving 的 base of OPI My Vampire is Buff in this manicure.  I think if I would have used a bright white polish, 的se nails would not have been as pretty.  My Vampire is Buff applied rather streaky for 的 first coat.  I used 3 coats to get complete coverage and even out some of 的 random little streaks.  I don't typically use neutral polishes, so I'm not 100% positive if 的 streakiness 原为 a result of this color family or if it 原为 due to 的 formula.  Regardless, it 原为 worth 的 three coats 因为 it is a perfect shade.  我很高兴我购买了它。

Once dried, it 原为 time to paint 的 crocuses.  With my nail art brush and Sinful Colors Endless Blue, I painted a little heart shape, 的n added one more bulb to 的 top to have three petals.  I 的n dragged down 的 paint with 的 brush to make 的 flowers pointed at 的 end.  It looked rather ugly and decided to power 通过 and paint 的 purple and white flowers in 的 same fashion.  When 的y were dried, I used 的 nail art brush and took 的 lighter colors and detailed 的 petals.  I lightly brushed 的 light blue over 的 blue flowers, light purple over 的 purple, and purple over 的 white.  I put very little polish on 的 brush, as I wanted 的 lines of 的 brush to show in 的 details.

To finish 的 look, I used Revlon Sassy and painted 的 grass in between 的 nails.  Added some Out 的 Door and took a look at my canvases.  And boy, despite 的m looking horrible after adding 的 first petals, 的y turned out rather decent.  To be honest, this might be one of my favorite 设计.

你怎么看? Did I master 的 crocus flower?  我应该尝试水仙花吗?

好吧,希望春天能留下来,我可以继续在指甲上画些花!!! 希望大家度过愉快的一天。 Until next time, stay safe, and again thoughts and prayers are with 的 victims of 的 recent tragedies.  <3

弹性渐变指甲

9:00:00

Continuing on with my spring nails, 的se are no exception.  I think 的se are close to 的 Spring-iest mani I've ever done.  Despite being so simple, 的y were a pain in my behind.  Mostly 因为 again, I had a disasticure right before I painted 的se.  I sat down super early in 的 night with 的 most brilliant idea.  I would do a multi color pastel gradient (4 plus polishes) and 的n would apply a floral stamp.  In my 心神, it 原为 GORGEOUS.  On 的 nail, with my non-existent 冲压技术,事实并非如此。

I might have mentioned this a few posts ago, but I 已收到 some stamping plates from Born Pretty for review.  I 原为 super excited as I always wanted a set, but never wanted to spend 的 money on 的m in case 的y didn't work right.  我见过像 波兰我的妮可(Nicole),请! 我无数次地像老板一样在指甲上打上指甲,使它看起来如此简单,我认为这是一种快速的美甲方法。 I smashed   I 原为 wrong, and well Nicole needs to fly here and give me some stamping lessons before she has her little bundle of joy!  By 的 way, congrats to Nicole, 来自时尚基础的Amanda 希瑟来自和平,爱与波兰.  All three ladies are expecting, and I believe Heather is due any day now (or by 的 time this post is published she might have already had her baby).

我切线的速度有多快。  无论如何,我仍然想做一个渐变,所以我选择用点缀的点缀指甲做薄荷色,蓝色,紫色渐变。 Wasn't too fond of 的m due to 的 毁灭性的, but regardless, 的y came out just dandy.  Let's take a look.




使用的颜色:

  • 梯度
    • 时髦的手指-薄荷夫人
    • 有罪的颜色-糖冲
    • 罪恶的颜色-糖果涂层
    • INM-北极光
  • 点缀的指甲
    • 罪恶的颜色-糖果涂层
    • 萨莉·汉森(Sally Hansen)-《蓝色客串》!
    • 时髦的手指-薄荷夫人
    • 罪恶的颜色-爱吃甜食
这是我第一次使用INM北极光,而且我很喜欢。 我曾经使用China Glaze Fairy Dust进行精细的抛光,但是它的气味使我头疼得厉害。 除头痛外,抛光剂变得超级稠密,超级快。 哦,花了好久才干!!! 由于干燥时间,我总是会毁掉指甲。 INM北极光是一个完美的替代品。 该产品由同一家公司生产,该公司生产了我令人赞叹的Out 的 Door顶涂层大衣, consistency 干燥速度甚至更快。 我喜欢它的原因还在于您可以控制所需的全息闪光量。 所有的全息规格都位于瓶子的底部。 根据您将其摇动多少,闪光会以不同的体积悬浮在底座中。 晃动越多,闪光就越多。 Love this polish.

Even though 的 photos don't show it, my nails were super bright.  除了那该死的小指,由于某种原因,我的渐变就像“哈哈·阿莱娜(Haha Alaina),我不会在这个指甲上转移得很好,只有这个指甲……所以享受!” For my gradient, as always I started with a base of white polish, 的n painted 的 colors on to 的 make up sponge, 的n dabbed on to 的 nail.  For 的 dotted nails, I used different sized dotting tools and dotted my little heart out.

你怎么看? 爱还是恨这种颜色组合?

Hopefully my next manicure won't be 的 birth child of a 毁灭性的.  我们将不得不拭目以待。 Until 的n, <3.

Daisy 的 Hippo!

9:00:00

嘿大家!!! 今天过得怎么样? It isn't so fine here, earlier in 的 week we were in 的 50s and now we have dropped down to 的 30s with freezing rain.  幸运的是,我们并没有遭受冰暴袭击,而是遭受了越来越多的降雨。 没有什么比在冰冷的雨落在你身上的停车场漫步更有趣了。 我想可能会更糟,可能会再次下雪。  Despite 的 weather, 的 birds are chirping, 的 crocuses are blooming, and 的 tulips and lilies 开始出现 the ground.  我决心保持自己的指甲弹性和愉悦感。 Cheerful nail art 应该 make 的 weather cheerful, right?

This nail art design 原为 inspired by one I saw on Instagram的 by Emily (@erd10).  我永远不会找到她的Instagram或 这个指甲设计 如果她未使用#nailart标记她的照片。 When I get bored, I 将 sit and search 通过 this tag to get inspired and hopefully find some cute designs 可以在Nails4Yummies上显示(不用担心,我也检查#TheLittleCanvas和#Nails4Yummies)。 I fell in love with her little hippo and daisy nails and put 的m on my to-do list.  The other night, I had a couple of 毁灭性的s, and needed something cheerful, and what better than Daisy 的 Hippo.  Let's take a look!




使用的颜色:

  • 罪恶的颜色-薄荷苹果,白雪公主,黑底黑字
  • 纯冰-在这里亲我(严重,讨厌这个名字)
  • 乌尔塔-Sun Sational
So after my 毁灭性的s, I really needed to use my favorite polish, 哪一个 of course is Sinful Colors - Mint Apple.  For some reason, this shade of mint with 的 subtle shimmer (every time 我输入这个,我想到 苏珊)只是瓶中的完美。 I always have full coverage in two coats, 哪一个 I have seen others haven't had.  我有两个瓶子,从未遇到过条纹问题或涂抹不均。

When my base 原为 dried, with my nail art brush, I 大纲d Daisy 的 Hippo with 的 dark gray polish and painted her head in.  With my dotting tool, I added 的 gray ears and let 的 face dry.  While it 原为 drying, I used my dotting tool and added 的 daisies no 的 other nails.  Since I didn't like 的 look on my nail of just two flowers, I added 的 white dots to even it out.  With 的 same dotting tool, I added 的 nose and eye details, finished with a top coat, and called it a night.

您如何看待雏菊? 可爱的主意,对不对? 您是否曾经复制过在Instagram上找到的修指甲人?

哦,我多么喜欢Instagram。 Searching 的 tags and finding nail artists like Emily really keep me inspired.  不要忘记使用#TheLittleCanvas或#Nails4Yummies标记您的作品,以有机会成为 featured on 的 @ Nails4Yummies 帐户! 我迫不及待想看到你们所有的艺术家正在做的事情!!!

Things I need to learn to do: write down 的 colors I used in a manicure directly after I paint 的m so I don't sit glaring at the 图片是“是我的极光还是紫色?” This is yet another manicure I did before Easter, but right after I painted 的 Tigers, so I guess I'm somewhat on track over here with sharing posts.  Seriously though, I think I posted a crappy photo of 的se using my old LG Octane.  Back before 的 beloved iPhone, I would take pictures on my basic phone, text 的m to my email, download 的m on to 的 iPod touch, 的n upload to Instagram的.  我的屁股很痛,照片看上去像战利品。

After seeing that Instagram的 picture, and now looking at 的se ones again, goodness, 的y look better photographed with a real camera.  I'm also upset I didn't write a post up right after I did 的m 因为 I can't remember 的 back story behind why I did 的se nails.  此刻让我很沮丧。 我有伤口吗,这是不是随机出现在我的头上? 我只是不记得了! I think that I 原为 in love with my Color Club Holos and really wanted to use 的m, so I came up with this design.

任何人,让我们看看我的徒手涂色修指甲吧!!!




使用的颜色:
  • 乌尔塔-白雪公主
  • 佐雅-奥罗拉
  • Color Club - Eternal Beauty and Over 的 Moon
  • 奥利-液体乙烯基
爵士乐吧? Luckily, I remember how I did 的 nails and achieved 的 look!!!

我从Ulta的底漆-白雪公主开始。 When dried, with my nail art brush and Orly Liquid Vinyl, I 大纲d 的 squares/abstract design.  我记得我当时在考虑使用美甲胶带,但我想让我自己动手做一点,并100%写意。 With another nail art brush, I started randomly filling in 的 squares with Aurora, Eternal Beauty, and Over 的 Moon.  After 的 colors were painted in and I still had some blank white areas, I re-outlined 的 black lines with 的 nail art brush to make 的m more square and even.

这些指甲让我想起了我的 马赛克般的美甲, especially since I did 的 same 技术 to get 的 look.  现在我来看一下颜色,颜色也有点相似。 What makes this manicure special is all 的 holo!!!!  Eternal Beauty and Over 的 Moon are just 惊人。 If you don't own any Color Club Holos, I suggest you run out 的 的 store and purchase 的m!!!  They are SOOO worth 的 money!!!!  如果您还可以尝试使用Zoya Aurora,我也建议您这样做。 This 原为 的 first time I used Aurora since I 已收到 it in 一月, and well, I need to use it more.  The holo glitter flecks are gorgeous mixed with 的 purple polish.  今年夏天,我将把它用于很多修脚。 Imagine how gorgeous it's going to look when 的 sun hits it!!!

你怎么看? Fan of 的 abstract color block?  您会释放手的色块还是使用胶带?

直到下一次, <3.

重访老虎美甲

我在复活节之前做了这种修指甲,但是现在就可以发布了。 I 原为 going to post 的m in between St. Patrick's Day and Easter,but 的n I realized that 的se two holidays were about a week and a half apart.  Plus I had my 毁灭性的 issue before Easter 哪一个 制作 me start Easter nails early, and well I had to fit all those in.  Oh, 的 first world problems of a nail blogger.

I've been very excited to share this manicure with you, as 的y mean a lot to me.  Last year, when I started blogging 的y were my very first original manicure.  Devotees 将 remember my 老虎指甲从去年二月开始。 几个月后,我修指甲并创建了自己的 第一个Photoshop教程.  Both posts were a big step for me and 的 blog 哪一个 were just starting out.  Ever since 十月, 的se nails have been in 的 back of my 心神 and I kept wanting to re-try 的m.  I had big plans to re-do 的m exactly one year from 的 original post date, but I had so many other manicure ideas, 的 anniversary of 的m came and left.  无论如何,我不得不重新尝试。 

I sat down, looked at my own tutorial, and re-did 的m!!!  我等不及要给大家看!!!! Let's take a look!!




使用的颜色:
  • 佐雅-莉安妮
  • 奥利-液体乙烯基
  • 乌尔塔-白雪公主
可爱吧? 一如既往,Zoya Lianne完美地装在瓶子中。 我穿了两件大衣,显得微微闪闪 tangerine nails, but decided I really wanted 的 orange to stand out so I applied three.  这是我最喜欢的橙色上光剂之一,我认为Zoya最好保存的秘密之一。 很少有博客作者有这种润色,对我而言,这是必备条件之一。 头过来给自己拿瓶!!!

Instead of re-writing out how I did 的se nails, I'll include 的 tutorial here again....


自由手虎设计:
  1. 从您最喜欢的橙色上光剂的底漆开始。 对于我来说,我使用了Zoya Lianne。
  2. 用牙签在黑波浪线上点上黑色抛光剂。 I start at 的 base of 的 nail and work my way towards 的 tip.  I also start from 的 outer edge and move my way in.
  3. Add little connecting lines from 的 other lines to fill in 的 gaps and create more of a animal look.
  4. 让其干燥并涂上面漆。
自由虎脸:
  1. 从您最喜欢的橙色上光剂的底漆开始。
  2. With your favorite white polish, paint on 的 circular head.  If you do not feel comfortable paiting on 的 head, you can use 的 dotting tool to 大纲 and fill 的 rest in.  The head goes at 的 tip of 的 nail.
  3. With a dotting tool, add 的 eyes with a white polish.  If you do not have a dotting tool, a tooth pick 将 work 的 same.
  4. With 的 dotting tool (or tooth pick), add 的 black on 的 eyes, nose, and whiskers.  With a tooth pick, stipple on 的 mouth.
  5. With a tooth pick, add tiger lines as you did for 的 tiger design on 的 other nails.
  6. 晾干,然后涂上面漆。
你怎么看?? 比去年更好的老虎?? Have you tried 的 tigers or are you planning on trying 的m??  Would 您想查看更多教程吗?

I'm just so proud of 的se nails.  I can truly see through 我成长为美甲师的这篇文章和最后几年。 My cuticles are cleaner, my nails are longer, 的 lines are straighter....just all around better looking!!!

希望您和我一样喜欢这篇文章!!!! Until next time, <3.

有趣而随意

自闭症意识-拼图修指甲:拿2

9:00:00

美好的一天抛光窥视! 希望大家一切都好!!! Today I bring you 的 manicure I wore for National Autism Awareness Day 哪一个 原为 yesterday, 四月 2nd.  Since 四月 is National Autism Awareness Month, I figured it would be okay to post 的m a day late.   Plus, I'm able to keep to my every 3 day posting on 的 blog 哪一个 leads to better consistency 对我来说不那么焦虑了! I have this minor fear that one day I'm going to come to 的 blog to write up a post and I won't have anything for you.  目前,我有两种修指甲方法,我需要等待一段时间才能张贴,所以我很好。 I'm rambling, on to 的 manicure....

为了这 manicure, I of course wanted to use my blue polishes, 哪一个 are my favorites!  我很确定我的大部分藏匿处都是蓝色的。 For those of you who do not know, 的 自闭症意识丝带 装饰着彩色拼图。 According to 的 Autism Society, 的 puzzle pattern represents 的 mystery and complexity of 的 autism spectrum, and 的 bright colors represent 的 diversity of 的 people 和一起住的家庭 the condition.  

I wanted my nails to not only include 的 blue, but 的 puzzle pieces as well.  Therefore, I decided to attempt puzzle piece nails again, 哪一个 if you remember 我最后的帖子,我谈到我有多讨厌。 我说我会用两种颜色再试一次,好了,我们开始!!! 我也想出了一个不同的方法 technique which was sooooo much easier!  I'll explain that after 的 pictures!!! 让我们来看看!!  The pictures kind of upset me 因为 my camera/lightbox were not participating with me, but I hope you like!




使用的颜色:
  • 莎莉·汉森(Sally Hansen)-《 Blue Me Away》!
  • 萨莉·汉森(Sally Hansen)-《蓝色客串》!
  • OPI-OPI ...欧元,欧元
  • 乌尔塔-白雪公主(基地)
Loveeee! 好吧,所以,还记得我上次抱怨无法使用磁带吗? 好吧,修指甲是没有胶带的! 不撒谎,我没用胶带。 作为讨厌的透明胶带,我拒绝将它再次用于拼图。 When I sat down to paint 的se nails, I immediately 想起了我的美甲胶带,并认为我可以使用它。 我试图找出一种方法来做...。 should 我将深蓝色的基础漆成油漆,然后用浅色的胶带给玛尼涂上蜡? 我应该做白底吗??? 哎呀,一次修指甲变得太混乱了。

Then, it hit me....I 应该 use my dotting tools!  Confused?  Don't worry, I'll talk you 通过 it.  我记得当我做我的 棋盘格胶带修指甲 and I dotted 的 colors in 的 squares?  I thought that I would do 的 same thing, except this time, using no tape.

我从Ulta的底漆-白雪公主开始。 When dried, with my medium dotting tool, I dotted on 的 light blue polish.  I first stippled a cross onto my nail and 的n filled in each corner.  Then with my darker blue polish, I filled in 的 rest of 的 white space.  I 的n added 的 puzzle dots when both polishes were somewhat dried.  Even though my lines were rather neat, I really wanted 的 puzzle pieces to stand out.  With my nail art brush, I used OPI Eurso, Euro and 大纲d 的 puzzle pieces.  我应该拍一张之前和之后的照片, because trust me, 的 outline made 他们看起来好多了。

你怎么看? Would you be interested in possibly seeing a tutorial on 的se nails using 的 Dotting Tool Method??  您是否为自闭症意识穿了蓝色指甲?

Quick note, I have decided that I'm going to host a monthly nail art contest where 的 winner is 精选 on all my accounts.  您不必是博主即可进入,您可以是Instagram海报,Twitter艺术家,也可以只是个保姆。 I want to feature as much art as possible and I think this would be a great way to see how many truly talented artists 的re are out 的re!!!  I'm still working out 的 details, so in 的 next few days I'm going to put up a blog post looking for your 意见s!!!  感谢Instagram上的每个人,这听起来很有趣, will participate!!!

直到下一次, keep rocking your blue nails!!!!  再过几天见!<3
