Sorry!

Hi! I'm sorry I haven't posted anything for quite a long time!! I've been bitching around with google for a while (they shut down my Ad-sense account) so I've been mailing them and trying to get it back but I did not get it.

So anyway, now I'm forgetting that and I'll start to post as regularly as I can. I'm also trying to kick start my new youtube channel, so I'll probably link to my channel a lot ^_^  And i just uploaded a tutorial on youtube, It's for this design:


Follow this link if you want to see how it's done (: :

Lace nails!

This is a lace nail design I did for new-years. It's quite simple, but still takes a while to do,  and it's really worth it based on how it looks in real life.
I thought I'd post this design while I work on a contest entry for TotallyCoolNails (on youtube) nail art contest themed love/valentines day. I'm quite happy with the result, and I'll post it later this week (:

Leopard print tutorial!

I absolutely love leopard print! It's my go-to design, cause it almost always turns out nice, but I always do the leopard print like this:


Or like this:


Witch as I mentioned I've done a couple times in different variations. But I have never actually tried to make it look like leopard patterned fur, so I thought I'd give it a try!
Here is a picture tutorial followed with a short explanation of each step (:


1. Paint the nails a solid blue.
2. Mix the original blue color first with white polish and paint thin brush strokes randomly all over the nail, to create highlights (forgot to take a picture of this step :/ ). And then do the same thing, but instead of mixing the blue with white, mix it with black polish, to create shadows. 
3. Add random light blue spots of different shapes and sizes on the nails.
4. Take a brush that's a bit stiff, and only use the tip of it to pick up a tiny bit of black acrylic paint and paint quite sloppy around the edges of the light blue. Make sure the black is painted to the same direction as the background highlights and shadows.
5. Top coat and it's done! (I ended up adding some more highlights before the topcoat, cause the design showed up a lot darker in reality.)

Hope you like it (:

Striped french tip!

I thought I'd share this striped french manicure I had for my graduation until I have the next tutorial done!
It's quite easy to do and is  really pretty IRL. (Also my dress was black and white, so it matched perfectly ^_^)
Hope you liked it (:
