One Stroke Bird+Roses Tutorial

Here's a tutorial that I did for a competition. The colors I used were mainly acrylic. I have recently mastered one stroke nail art. It took me like three months to be able to do my first one stroke manicure. During that time I tested and a lot of different acrylic paints and brushes, most of them didn't work. The paint that I used was by Americana (small pot sets of 6 colors) and the brush that worked was 7300 Shader by Loew-Cornell. I hope you like the video !! :)

B-day + giveaway reminder


Did you notice that I changed my blog design? I only changed the collage in the background to black and white, and made a banner. The banner is awesome (you can find the font here).
I also wanted to tell you that it's my birthday next week!! yaaaaaaaaaay! Maybe I'll get new polishes, maybe I'll swatch them, maybe I'll make awesome birthday nails. Only time will tell :) For now you can stare at the adorable panda picture here:


Also don't forget to enter my giveaway. It's international and ends on the 18th december. I only have three entries.

My Try at Stamping

Here is my entry to Creativne Nail Design by Sue's nail art competition. I hate (hate hate hate) stamping. If I was any good at it I would probably love it. This is literally the only decent design that I have done by stamping. I am really surprised that it turned out so good. From my experience in stamping (which is about 4 tries) I have learned that older polishes work a LOT better. So dig out your two year old nail polishes ladies, because we're stamping tonight!

Surreal Galaxy Nails

I have always wanted to do galaxy nails. But after several failed attempts at the classical galaxy I made my own version. And I LOVE it. The girl looks awesome, the bubble looks awesome, the planets should have been more bubble-like, but overall it's awesome. NOTE: by classical galaxy I mean black nails with sponged color(s) and glitter (come on, you know what I mean).


Water Element Nail Art Tutorial

Here is a nail art tutorial done for SnowWhiteIsBack's contest. The theme was the four elements, I chose water (I don't know why). I really really hate doing tutorials it slows the painting process down a lot. I am acctually happy with this tutorial compared to my other (one) tutorials. I hope you like it!

Day of the Dead Nail Art

Here is another late halloween design. In this design I painted a girl with the day of the dead makeup, and I painted a real skeleton giving her a rose. My first time painting a skull, turned out pretty good. The rose actually looks like a rose, which is a great improvement since I can't even draw a rose on paper. Although I have never seen a purple rose, let's hope that there are roses that are this shade of purple. In case you can't tell, the skeleton is wearing a white shirt with a collar. I hope you like my design!

ZOMBIE NAILS

I did these nails during halloween. they were inspired by the movie "Return of the Living Dead". Here is a picture of it:
And here are my nails.

These didn't photograph too well. I am very proud of these nails. I think they are one of my best. I love the dark metallic blue(I used Flormar-433), It's my favorite nail polish and I am running out. Since I accidentally knocked the bottle over and I lost like half of the polish. :(

Killer Bunny

I did these nails during halloween. As you can see on the picture they were done for a instagram competition to #naildecorsweetnspooky (surprise, surprise I lost). I love these nails, the bunny is adorable and the skull adds the creepy halloween effect.

Comic Book Nails

I have always wanted to do nails inspired by a comic book. I was planning to do something like pink nails with black dots and words like "boom" on them. Well I ended up with a set of nails with superheroes painted on them :D

I painted Superman on my index finger, Batman on my middle finger, Spiderman on my ring finger and Wolverine on my pinky.

Video Game Nail Art

Here are some video game nails. Sorry about the quality of this picture. On my index finger I painted "Doodle Jump", on my middle finger I painted "Super Mario", on my ring finger I painted "Pac-man" and on my pinky I painted "Cut The Rope".

Screen Muncher Nail Art Tutorial

Here is a simple tutorial that you can do with just a dotter and some polish.

Donut Bunny nails

I did these for another contest. The theme was food. So I chose to do donut nails. I don't always use glitter but when I do, I make sure that I use every single color that I own.
I love the small bunny in the donut on my pinky finger.

Oktoberfest Mani

Oh Oktoberfest, the world's biggest fair. But what makes Oktoberfest so special that it brings millions of people to Germany every year??? Answer: BEER. So here is my Oktoberfest mani. Again, these were done for a competition that I lost. The girl is in a Oktoberfest dress, the background behind is a traditional Greman pattern.

Infected Mushroom nails

I did these for a competition Infected Mushroom was having on their twitter. I was quite pleased with the result, but I guess that the band didn't like them since I lost the competition.

Interstitial Cystitis nail art

Nails supporting Interstitial Cystitis awareness. I did these nails about three months ago for a nail art contest (which I lost). It was quite hard to do because it is almost impossible to get inspiration for disease themed nail art. Finally I found a picture on the internet which I fell in love with instantly. I found the picture at this link: http://www.zazzle.es/mordeduras_intersticiales_de_la_cistitis_posters-228340108872813869
So, here are my nails.
