Elleandish New Years Nails

I love Elleandish‘s nail tutorials, so when I saw she had posted a New Years design, I just had to try it out.


This is how my left hand turned out. Not bad, but I learned that my glitter polish just wasn’t dense enough for the star on the middle finger, so i tried a different technique on my right hand:


The star on this hand turned out much better. I used a metallic gold polish to make the star and then went over the lines, once, with my glitter polish.

That’s all for now. Have a great New Year, and be sure to check out the rest of Elleandish’s designs and tutorials at her Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/elleandish!


Shimmer + Matte = Gorgeous


I decided to try something a little different today and go matte, and I’m glad that I did! I used a purple shimmer polish from e.l.f. and the Butter London matte finish top coat. I love the way it turned out. I was going to add a bit more to the design, but with the shimmer from the polish still showing through, I thought it looked perfect just like this. And why mess with perfect?

Happy New Years

I got some awesome nail polish and nail art brushes for Christmas, and I couldn’t wait to try them out, so I started on a New Years design with my new Nevada spirit paint nail polish. It turned out a little messy, but with time I think I will get used to the new brushes.

My left hand (the better of the two hands lol)

This is the nail art brush set from Bundle Monster that I got for Christmas 🙂 (Thanks Mom!)

P.S. Go Pack!
