Stamping over Duochrome

It's been unseasonably warm for February here in Michigan over the last few days. People are loving it but I miss the snow. I love winter and I don't want it to be over. Spring is nice, too, but it doesn't hold a candle to winter. 

None of this has anything to do with today's nail art; just some thoughts. :)

Smoosh Marble

One nail art trend that I've really jumped on board for is the smoosh marble. If you aren't familiar, a smoosh marble is achieved by globbing dots of nail polish onto a nail stamped and dabbing the stamper onto your nails until you get the finish you like. It's no secret that I love all marbling techniques. What I love about the smoosh marble is that you can get a similar effect to marbling with saran or cling wrap but it's SO MUCH FASTER! You can get a gorgeous marbled effect in a snap. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it.

Conversation Hearts Nails

Happy Valentine's Day! I'm a sappy romantic so I love the holiday. I love celebrating love; not just romantic love. I bought a gift for my bestie, too, because I love her to bits. 

For my Valentine's Day nails, I thought I'd recreate the most iconic V-Day candy. Conversation hearts! I can't be the only person who thinks that they're disgusting, though, right?

Negative Space Half-Moons

It's getting closer and closer to Valentine's Day so the nail art world is flooded with Valentine themed nail art. AND I LOVE IT! I love holiday nail art and I'm not ashamed. So, of course I'm throwing some designs of my own into the mix.

Color Blocked Gradient

Have you ever gotten to that point in the week when you just feel completely exhausted and you're beyond ready for the weekend? Have you ever gotten to that point on a Tuesday? Maybe it's just because my weekend was so amazing or maybe this week really is just the worst but it's been a rough couple of days and I'm really looking forward to the weekend.

But there's nothing quite like some relaxing nail art to really take your mind off of things.

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.
