New Year's Eve Textured Gradient

Happy New Year's Eve, guys!


I'm squeezing in one last post for 2014.  I'm a little hungover from all the cartoon, red and green christmas nails we have been seeing for the past month.  As much as I LOVE them, I'm glad it's time to move on to something else!

New Year's Eve is the perfect time to break out all the sparkly, glittery goodness and go all out.  Before I sat down to do my NYE nails, I told myself I would NOT do black and gold.  It seems like everyone does black and gold!  Yet somehow, I gravitated towards those two colors anyways.

My Top 12 of 2014






It's that time of year!  I have been blogging for a little over a year now and I finally have enough nail art saved up that I was able to choose my top 12 favorite manis of 2014.  These were not necessarily my most popular but these are the manis that I personally like best.  I tried many new skills this year and I am very proud of how far I have come! I'm really excited to see where 2015 takes me and my hobby.

Icy Textured Gradient

Hey guys!

Life is so busy right now.  We have several holiday parties this week, I'm preparing my class for their upcoming Christmas program at school, AND I've been buying/wrapping gifts for family, friends, and our Secret Santa polish exchange!  Somehow with all of this, my new small business, and a full time job I still find time to paint my nails.  Thank god I do because I love it too much to not have time for it!

I recently did these icy frozen-esque nails and wore them for several days.  They were super easy!

Loaded Lacquer 'Clark, Glitter's Full' Review

Hey Guys!

Ya'll know how much I adore Loaded Lacquer (favorite indie status).  Well, when I saw her upcoming holiday collection prior to its release, I knew I HAD to have this polish.  There were a few others that I was interested in, but I had to be "good" with the holidays coming up.

This collection was released at midnight CST Thanksgiving night/black Friday morning, which is 1:00am on the east coast.  I was somehow able to stay up late enough to snag this beauty, Clark, Glitter's Full.

Peppermint Swirl Nail Art

These are 100% inspired by the gorgeous and super sweet Gianna over at Nailstorming.  I loved her simple peppermint swirl nails so much, I knew I had to try it for myself!

Christmas Watermarble

What's better than a watermarble....a Christmas watermarble!  All the fabulousness of a watermarble with a little bit of holiday spirit.  Glorious.

I submitted these to Nail It! Magazine for their Nov/Dec Holiday issue and they were chosen to be featured!  This is the third issue my nail art has been featured in and I am so excited/proud/humbled by this! (allthefeelz)
