Roses with Chains

 Hey guys! I know is has been a super long time since I posted but after visiting family and moving from working in a salon for someone else to booth renting on my own has taken a lot of my time recently and I apologize that I haven't been blogging. I am hoping now that I am getting settled into my new area that things will go back to somewhat normal. 
 Today I have a design I did a while back inspired by Robin Moses, you can see her video here. The base is OPI Black Onyx with a bit of gold holo glitter near the cuticle. The roses and scrolling are done with acrylic paint.

 I did add chains and a small gold lion charm on the ring finger as well.

Bet You'll Never Guess What I Found...

 So, the beauty supply I have been going to since getting my license had a few very nice finds. The supply is kind of a hole in the wall shop that's not well know unless you are a licensed nail tech. Since you need a license to shop there and they are a pretty old place, and it's a huge place, I'm talking a warehouse for just nail products, they had some old OPI's still in stock.
 Today I have OPI DS Original, a light lavender holographic shade. It's discontinued and pretty hard to find. I have been searching for it everywhere for a few years and glad I finally found it. Picture is two coats, the formula is a bit thin and could use another coat but it is beautiful anyways.

Summer Roses

 Hey guys, more bright summer nail art for today! This design was inspired by Robin Moses, you can see her video here. I love this design so much that I didn't really change much about it other than using yellow on the other fingers. The yellow is Revlon Sunshine Sparkle and the blue, I believe is OPI What's With The Cattitude but I could be wrong, I honestly don't remember on that one. The roses and leaves are all done with acrylic paint.

 I did the same thing on my thumbs as on the ring fingers.

Fourth of July Nails!

 Hello everyone! Today I have my Fourth of July nails to share with you. I loved the design I did two years ago, you can see that one here if you like, that I wanted to do something like it again. I based the Bald Eagle head off this picture here since I wanted a more realistic eagle for this year.
 The base is Gelish gel polish in Black Shadow for the ring finger and Caution for the rest. The fireworks and eagle are all acrylic paint with the exception of the glitter, which is a glitter striper I picked up in Japan. I did the same thing on my right hand minus the eagle. I did the American flag with Gelish Arctic Freeze, Caution and OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress but didn't get a picture of it.

 I hope you guys have a great week! We are off to visit my family for a while but I do have some posts scheduled.
