Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!!!  

For my New Year's manicure, I decided to do my left hand as 2014 themed, and my right hand as 2015 themed.  My left hand is the five most Googled things of 2014.  My pinkie is Flappy Bird, the 5th most Googled thing.  My ring finger is the logo for Malaysia Airlines.  My middle finger is an Ebola germ (and I thought the placement ended up pretty funny...)  My index finger is the logo for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

My thumb is "Jumanji" because the most Googled thing of 2014 was Robin Williams!  One of my very favorite movies growing up was Jumanji, and according to my mom I watched it "at least 100 times."  Since I didn't feel like doing a portrait of Robin Williams, I decided to make a tribute to Jumanji and Mr. Williams' work.

I wasn't able to get a picture of this one before I wrecked it cooking for my New Year's party, so we'll just pretend it's still pristine!  Before it was ruined there were all 6 dice on it.

I used my right hand to welcome in the new year, and what better way to do that than glitter!

My base is a black holographic polish I mixed and named "Nova."  I used OPI "In True Steffani Fashion" to do a glitter gradient on the tip, and the numbers are done in OPI "Love.Angel.Music.Baby."

I put "Happy New Year" on my thumb this year instead of just exclamation points.  Do you know how much of a pain in the butt it is to paint tiny letters left handed and upside down?  It's a real pain in the butt!

Wherever you are tonight, I hope you have a happy and safe holiday, and a great 2015!!!

Super Skittle Christmas Nail Art

Hey guys!  I'm super excited about this mani, because I went overboard again.  I guess that's what I do when I only get to do one mani a week at most!  Today's theme for "Challenge Your Nail Art" is Freestyle, so I did a different Christmas themed nail art on each of my nails!  The right hand is a little messy, but I hope that can be forgiven haha

Let's get to the nail art!

I'm gonna start with the right hand to get it out of the way haha!  On my thumb I've got some Christmas lights which I did over a black base to make it look like they were shining at night.  On my index finger I've got a penguin, I was gonna give him a little bow tie, but I decided I liked it as it was and didn't want to risk messing it up!  My middle finger is some simple candy cane stripes, and my ring finger is one of those dotted Christmas trees that were all over the nail art world last year.  My pinkie is just a simple wrapped present.

If you want to successfully paint both hands, I highly recommend starting with the right!  Usually I start with the left hand and then don't even want to go on to the right hand cause I know it wont look as good.  If you start there you've got no where to go but up!

And up means my left hand!  Though I'm not super happy with the cabin on my thumb, that's what it is.  There's also an evergreen tree and a Christmas star.  My pointer finger has a Rudolph made following Adventure's in Acetone's tutorial.  My middle finger is a snowman that looks a little lumpy, but that's just snow falling behind him, promise!  My ring finger is Santa, and my pinkie is an elf costume.

Every time I do a fancy nail art like this I remember how much I miss it like crazy!  If only I had more time in my schedule :(

But hey, I managed to get some festive nails on for Christmas!  Make sure to check out what the other ladies came up with for their Christmas manis today!

12 Days of Christmas Nail Art

So here I am, back from yet another long break to bring you guys a nail art for the Challenge Your Nail Art group!  The prompt for today is "Any line from the 12 Days Song."  That's all well and good, but I have finals to study for.  Which of course meant I grabbed a friend and did the entire song!

Whoops!  So here is the nail art, presented to you in song format. (But just the last verse cause aint nobody got time for that)

On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me:

12 Drummers Drumming

11 Pipers Piping

10 Lords a Leaping

9 Ladies Dancing

8 Maids a Milking

7 Swans a Swimming

6 Geese a Laying

5 Golden Rings

4 Calling Birds

3 French Hens

2 Turtle Doves

and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

So there it is!  I also have some photos of individual hands to show, and her other toenails which are red green and gold polka dots (and which I'll call the first day of polka dots for the NCC because I don't think I'll get 4 prompts done!)
