#repost because I've been tooooo swamped with life to do nail art, and because I need some palm trees and ocean in my life right now! Thanks to all of you who have stuck around! I'm in the process of packing and moving so I may not post as often but I'll be coming back with a vengeance!
Here's a solo shot of my mani swap with @ninatuck! Super fun to do!
Look what @ninatuck and I did!! I haven't done this in a while but I knew I wanted to recreate her comic/pop art nails so I went further and asked if she would do me the honour of doing a mani swap! I used the gradient dots as a base for mine and acrylic paint for the lettering. She recreated my @kgrdnr-inspired blue-white gradient with paisley and did an AMAZING job! Paisley ain't easy and she totally did this design justice! Thanks for mani-swapping with me Nina, and thanks for being so patient when I was sooooo slack! 😘😘😘😘
I have a tutorial for these but my #splice is just not cooperating with me, so y'all gotta settle for a still in the meantime between time! This is @pinkprincesscosmetics Divinely Made under black gradient dots!
Spent a beautiful Saturday in downtown Toronto with the lovelies @shaystylista and @thary_xoxo to celebrate Shay's birthday weekend! We hit up the #motivesondundas event and got our makeups did, mine by the talented @stuntinlkelauramorra! No nail pics today and I know I've been MIA but I'll be back at it soon! 😘😘😘 for sticking around. Go wish @shaystylista a happy birthday if you haven't already! 💕💕💕
No new nail art to post but here is a closet shot of my @kgrdnr inspired paisley nail art using @pinkprincesscosmetics Reach for the Sky and Divinely Made, topped with @inmnails Northern Lights holo topcoat!
Today's prompt for #31DC2014 is animal print. I went with honeycombs again because honeycombs are technically an animal-oriented print! This is a grey-blue gradient, then a reverse gradient on top of the vinyl. I used @inmnails Granite and Misty Blue and the honeycomb vinyls are from @playwanet (http://upyournail.com!) check out both of these stores to grab your own polishes and vinyls today!
Inspired by the manis that came out of #NYFW (in particular @_michellesaunders and @ritaremark) I opted to do a simpler design for today's #31DC2014 prompt of stripes. This beautiful purple is @inmnails Zinnia with Exposed on the accent and Quo by Orly's Filthy Rich for the free handed gold stripes. Check out my review of @inmnails Zinnia on the blog! Clickable link is up now in the bio. Check out @inmnails to grab yours today!
Today's prompt for #31DC2014 is polka dots! Polka dots on my ring finger and other #dotticure on the others. I do think it's missing something, like studs, but I still love this. I really like my index and pinky finger! Colours are @ppn_ Beauty & Brains (pink) and Respect (black) both of which can be found in the @ppn_ x @naildecor collabo set! Check out @ppn_ to grab yours today! PS - the black? That's a one coater. #YUP
So here's what I actually did for the gradient theme for #31DC2014! I used Divinely Made and Reach For the Sky from the @ppn_ x @naildecor collabo collection! This design is inspired by the awesome and insanely talented @kgrdnr - though I don't do her original justice at all! I topped this with Northern Lights by @inmnails for that extra sparkle! So, basically, this is love.
Okay I have to ask... Where are all my new followers finding me from!? My feed has blown up over the last 24 hours! 😳 Shucks! Hi y'all! Today's #31DC2014 theme is gradient! I do have another post later today but I thought it was appropriate to post this tutorial of gradient stars using the stars vinyl from @playwanet (http:// UpYourNail.com) I posted these nails a couple of weeks ago and forgot to post this tutorial. Hope it makes sense! Song is Ed Sheeran - Bloodstream. Colours used are all @luxelacquersinc - Siena, Mila and Poppy.
Look what I just got!!! I grabbed a set of @naildecor's collab set with @ppn_ called "naildecor's faves" and I'm so excited to try these babies! The colours that come in this set are: Beauty & Brains (pink) Reach for the Sky (blue) Respect (black) and Divinely Made (white.) Divinely Made is currently my go-to white so I was glad to grab a second bottle. The set comes with a nail file AND loose glitter, all for $22! Check out @ppn_ to grab yours today! @ppn_@ppn_@ppn_
Vertical rainbow for day 9 of #31DC2014 This was done using all acrylic paint for easier cleanup but I'm not sure I like the outcome better than polish. Topcoat by @laccbeauty.
Sometimes a swatch says more than art. So in love with this beauty of a grey appropriately named Granite from @inmnails! Check out the blog for more pics plus review! Clickable link is in the profile or check out http://danicaj.com! @inmnails@inmnails@inmnails
Show you my fill line so you know it's real. @inmnails#arlecchino was my summer colour and with this Indian summer we've got, it might be my autumn too! ☀️🌀☀️🌀☀️
I'm gonna sporadically join in on #31DC2014 just to get me back in the game... Today's orange, and what better colour to use than Sunsets in Miami by @ppn_!? I also used He Always Comes Back for the yellow, and black acrylic paint. Check out @ppn_ to get yours today!
