Splatter Nails

Are there certain types of nail art that you avoid for one reason or another. One of my favorite nail art techniques is splatter nails but I usually talk myself out of it because of the mess. It's such a cool and unique effect but it is SUCH a mess. But I love it too much so I had to give in and do one.

Rainbow Water Marble

Every once in a while, I just have to do a water marble. I'm one of those odd people who loves to water marble. As the years have gone by I've found them to be easier and easier to do. I used to get frustrated with the process but a few things have really helped.

Silvery Gradient

Here we are, five days into 2017. I didn't even finish my 12 days of Christmas nail art posts, let alone post any NYE designs. I took a little break to spend time with family for a little while over the holidays. They were visiting from out of state and it was nice to just relax and hang out with them. 

I did do my nails for NYE, though, and that's the design I have to share with you today. I started out with a gradient and then, when it came to deck it out for the holiday, I changed my mind. I loved the gradient so much that I didn't want to put anything over top of it.

Christmas Movie Nails

When I decided to do this 12 days of Christmas nail art thing, I knew right away that I wanted to do one design based on a Christmas movie. The thing is, there are SOOOO many Christmas movies out there! You've got your Christmas Classics like It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, and A Christmas Story. There are those awesome old Christmas claymations like A Year Without Santa Clause, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Santa Clause is Coming to Town. But then you've got those newer movies that become instant classics.

It didn't take me long to chose a movie. Can you tell what it is? I'll give you a hint...
"Bye, Buddy! Hope you find your dad!"

Christmas Sweater Nails

I have this terrible habit of waiting until late to start doing my nails. And since I can never decide what I want to do with them, it takes me quite some time to get done. There's no reason for me posting these so late other than just that. I didn't sit down to do them until after 10 and you know the rest.

For today's Christmas design, I chose some Fair Isle style images from my favorite holiday Born Pretty stamping plate.
