Purple is one of my favorite colors especially in nail polishes. Today's design takes inspiration from vintage flowers wrapped up in a lilac/ purple ombre background. Gradient nails are not to be confused for Ombre nails. Gradient is more of a design where one color transitions into another color or more while ombre is from light to dark. I guess in some ways you can have an integration of both.

Hello beautiful! I'm back again with another Californails nail art monthly challenge since I thoroughly enjoyed the one I complete for January. Since I've already done a gradient dotticure and rainbow dotticure I'm doing a flower dotticure to complete today's challenge.

I can finally say I feel totally confident now with nail stamping and this was all due to watching tons of nail stamping videos and trials to find polishes within my own stash that worked well as stamping polishes. One of the main tips I picked up was that the polish needs to be a thicker viscosity. Another tip is that if it is opaque in one coat it maybe perfect for stamping since after all the images for stamps are just thin layers of polish. So here's my first big success with stamping :)

Hello beautiful! I've been thoroughly enjoying my birthday month with lots of activities from beach outings to barbeques and movie dates. So I'm back today with some simple nail art perfect for you DIY'ers that are not ambidextrous. The brush stroke technique is quite simple and can achieve numerous looks just by changing the colors used.

How many times have I been inspired by Robin Moses? Too many times to count. She is my nail art guru and I watch her videos every week as she takes all kinds of objects for sources of inspiration. Today's design is a simple one I saw her do using a light blue base but I did a twist on her's using my favorite color; pink.

I feel head over heels in love with this gorgeous graphic, mainly black and white print with a pop of color design from Mara Hoffman Fall 2014 collection as seen for NYFW. I thought it was impossible to ever get this look represented in my nail art until of course I simply got down to work. Lo and behold I found an easy way to replicate the pattern in nail art using simple brush strokes.
