"Eye" See You

This nail design was just something quick I had done in between the Tangled and Warped Tour manicures.



The base on my pinkie and middle finger is Black Taxi from Nails Inc. On my ring finger I used Sure Thing from Revlon as a base, then painted on Hey Girl! from Quo, Lightening from Sally Hansen, Let's Get Lost from Essence and Black Taxi on randomly. On my middle finger, I painted an eye using black, white and blue acrylic. Finally, using a base of Sure Thing and a black striper, I created a checker board pattern. 

Hope you guys enjoy!

I'm Weird

On Friday I went to Warped Tour 2014. For those of you who don't know, Warped Tour is a huge music festival that is now international. There are over 100 bands and artists on the tour, so there's something for everyone to enjoy. It was my first time going to Warped Tour and it was an amazing experience. Here are my nails for the occasion.


My pinkie is a base of Black Taxi from Nails Inc. Then I sponged on Frostbite from China Glaze, Plum Seduction from Revlon, Back In My Gloria Days from Nicole By OPI and Let's Get Lost from Essence to create a galaxy. Finally, I added some stars with white acrylic. My ring finger is the Journeys logo, with a base of Black Taxi painted in white acrylic. My middle finger is part of the illustration for the Ghost Town song Monster. The base is High Line Green from NYC, and the rest is acrylic. On my pointer finger, I started with a base of Black Taxi, then sponged on French Quarter for Your Thoughts and Ski Slop Sweetie, both from OPI. I added stars and "I'm Weird" which is a new song from Ghost Town. Finally, my thumb is the Vans logo. The base is Black Taxi and the lettering is acrylic. 

Ghost Town was super excited to see my nails again, and even took photos of my nails!

I got a chance to meet a few of the bands on the tour as well. 


Alix and Kevin from Ghost Town.


Evan from Ghost Town. 


Conor from Ice Nine Kills. 


And Bertrand from Chunk! No Captain Chunk! 

Warped Tour was definitely fun! And it was great to see some awesome bands! 

Hope you guys enjoy!

*UPDATE*



This is a tour vlog from Ghost Town. If you watch from about 1:05, you'll see me showing off my nails at the Toronto Warped Tour show!

Also, Warped Tour posted my nails on their Instagram!

Tangled

It is a well known fact that I LOVE Disney. If you haven't figured that out yet, then what have you been doing?! Anyways, I thought it was about time for another Disney themed manicure.


The Disney movie I chose to base my design off of was Tangled. I chose to model the art after the illustrations during the credits of Tangled. 

I started with a base of Sure Thing by Revlon, then sponged brown acrylic on each nail. My pinkie is a tree painted with green, brown and black acrylic. On my ring finger, I painted Rapunzel using black, white and yellow acrylic. My middle finger is Pascal the chameleon, painted with black, white and yellow acrylic, and my pointer finger is Maximus the horse, painted with brown, black and white acrylic. Finally, my thumb is the tower Rapunzel lives in, painted with black, white and brown acrylic. Finally, I topped everything off with Big Matte Top Coat from Sally Hansen.

Hope you guys enjoy!

MMVA's


On Sunday I went to the 2014 MMVA's or Much Music Video Awards. They're a huge Canadian awards show, and I definitely needed to do my nails for them.


The black base is Black Satin from Rimmel, and the white base is White Matter from Formula X. On my pinkie, I painted the Marianas Trench logo in white acrylic. My ring finger is the MMVA logo. On my middle finger, I painted the Imagine Dragons logo and Hedley's logo is painted on my pointer finger. Finally, my thumb is the Much logo. 

I don't have any concert photos, as I didn't stay for most of the MMVA's... It was my first bad concert experience...

But anyways, hope you guys enjoy!

Litt Up

Last night was the premiere of Season 4 for the show Suits. Ever since one of my friends got me watching the show, I've been in love with it. It's pretty awesome. So anyways, I of course had to do another nail tribute to Suits. Here it is.


The black base (pinkie and middle fingers) is Black Satin from Rimmel. Then the white base is White Matter from Formula X. The Suits logo is painted with red acrylic and the suit is white and red acrylic. Finally, "Litt Up", which is a phrase one of the characters makes up is painted with black and red acrylic. And yes, this is ALL hand-painted, by me. Some people were a little skeptical about the writing. 

I also tweeted my nails and Gabriel Macht who plays one of the main characters, Harvey Specter, seemed to like them! You can see his tweet below.   


Season 4 started off with a bang. If you haven't seen Suits, I definitely recommend checking it out! Hope you guys enjoy!

Stitch!

By now, you all know I love Mickey Mouse, and second only to my love for Mickey, is my love for Stitch. Yes, this is another Lilo and Stitch design. But I can't help it. That little blue guy is adorable. 


The base is White Matter from Formula X. Then I used black, blue and pink acrylic to paint Stitch and "Ohana Means Family". 

Hope you guys enjoy!

This and That

Today's manicure is based on a design I saw somewhere on the internet (with my own twist), but I'm not really sure where... But, credit to whoever came up with this originally! Anyways, the design.







My pinkies and thumbs are a base of Flirt from Revlon. The daisies are white and yellow acrylic, and the smiley face is black and yellow acrylic. My left ring finger and right middle finger are a base of Mint Sorbet from Sally Hansen with gold hearts made of The Man With The Golden Gun 18k gold top coat from OPI. My middle finger (left hand) is a base of White Matter from Formula X. The yin-yang is completed with Black Satin from Rimmel. My left pointer finger and right ring finger are In True Stefani Fashion from OPI. And my right pointer finger is a peacock feather made with Frostbite from China Glaze, Deviantly Daring from China Glaze, Unplugged from China Glaze, and Show Me The Greens from Misa.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Sugar Skulls

As you hopefully all know by now, I love sugar skulls. And since I was lacking inspiration, I decided to paint a quick sugar skull manicure.


The base is White Matter from Formula X, then I used various acrylics, and the tip of a pen to make the skulls.

Hope you guys enjoy!
