OMD 31 Day Challenge Day 13: Stars

Hi everyone! Sorry for the posting pause! The 31 Day Challenge sadly did not work, but I had fun doing the designs that I actually did! Now I am doing to show you the mani's that I did late! This one was for day 13 and the theme was stars. The black heart is actually a fimo cane star that I painted black. I actually painted four more black and was going to put them on the rest of my fingers, but the one black star didn't stay down well so I just said no! The base is China Glaze's Sweet Hook! This is a picture with no top coat and the base is Nail Tek's Intensive Therapy II. Thank you for reading and see you soon! -Zoe

Hello and good evening! I hope you all had a good day! Tomorrow's Friday so that's always a good thing to think about! For today's challenge I was inspired by a picture on the internet of The Lion King nails. So I am letting you know that I did not think of this design!

Polishes I Used:

-China Glaze Lemon Fizz (2 coats, some bare patches but evened out well)
-Black and Red Acrylic Paint
-Base coat: Nail Tek's Intensive Therapy II

This took a lot of time and I love how it turned out! I wish I could do nail art like this all the time! Thank you for reading and see you tomorrow! -Zoe

OMD 31 Day Challenge Day 24: Inspired by a Tutorial

Good afternoon everyone! Today is my second blog post using my new camera and I really love how the pictures turned out! For my design I used The Nailasaurus' Waterfall nail art tutorial. I really like her design but I don't think this is a design for me. I am not sure what I don't like about it, it's just not my favorite. On the other hand the swatches for my base came out spectacular and I can't wait for you to see them! LOL! I will let you see the picture now! Thank you for reading and I will see ya tomorrow! -Zoe <3

All products were purchased by me!
Polishes Used:
-China Glaze Roguish Red (1 coat, super glossy, no problems!)
-Yellow, Orange, and Light Yellow Acrylic Paint
-Silver Glitter Striper by Kiss Nail Art Paint
-Base Coat is Nail Tek's Intensive Therapy II

OMD 31 Day Challenge Day 20: 3-D Nails

Hello and good afternoon everyone! I am in love with these nails! As you may know caviar nails were in awhile ago and I never did them. So for todays 3-D challenge I decided to do some. I wish I would have done them sooner! I love the way they look and with some practice I think I could do some cool designs with caviar beads! The base is 2 coats of Avon's Cotton Candy and the mixed set of beads I got from my nail mail buddy Pleased to Please You on Instagram and the silver ones I got from Michaels Craft Store! That is about it for today! Thank you for reading and have a good weekend! -Zoe

Please excuse the quality!

OMD 31 Day Challenge Day 19: Glitter

Good afternoon! Yesterday's theme was glitter.  I wanted to use loose glitter, but because I am so far behind in this challenge I wanted to do something easier and much quicker. So I grabbed China Glaze's Sea Spray and Lorelei's Tiara and did a quick glitter gradient. It didn't turn out as I wanted it, but it looks decent!

All polishes were bought by me!
I used 1 coat of China Glaze's Sea Spray with one coat of the glitter. For my base coat I used Nail Tek's Intensive Therapy II. Thank you for reading today! -Zoe
