I'm not a nail tech. I have no training. I know my nails aren't perfect. But I do my nails for me and just have fun with it. I don't update as often as I should. But I always have polish on. I usually wear it for 3 or more days at a time.
If you like what you see give me a follow or comment. I'd love to hear from you! :)

31DC2013 Day 20 - water marble

I find water marbling hit or miss. Some of these nails are good some not so good.
I've got both hands featured again, the first pic is outside, with flash I think. It was in the spring so they looked super bright.
and the other is inside with the flash.

31DC2013 Day 18 - half moons

Dear Purple, I love you but why you hate nail art?!

I'm not trying to make excuses but the strings were perfectly white before topcoat and the balloons and a whole 'nother story!! They look good in these pics but the purple bled through terribly!!
This is another design I think I could do better and will do again in the future, birthdays?!

31DC2013 Day 17 - glitter

Soooo I have had avoided buying the 'fuzzy' top coats. They just didn't appeal to me, but last week I got this one from Hard Candy, I think it was the black and white that sucked me in. And the red, well I thought it was red in store, now I am pretty sure its pink.  I still like it.

31DC2013 Day 16 - tribal print

Do these work?! Like the not good at delicate ones, there is no way that I could get the same print on each nail or the intricate-ness! 
I've always wanted to do the dream catcher and I think they turned out pretty good. I'd like to do them again in the future.

31DC2013 Day 15 - delicate print

Nail stickers are not cheating, right?!
I don't think I would be able to do a free handed delicate print. I really don't use stickers very often, just sometimes when I am lazy. 

Sorry I was late posting the last few days,  I had the pictures I just didn't have them water marked. I do apologize, they next few days will be on time and the 'inspired by...' section will hopefully be on time too.

31DC2013 Day 14 - flowers

These might be considered a cheat but I really like them.
Cheating because, I painted them just for the pictures, didn't even topcoat! [I know the scandal!] They turned out really cool though, well I think they are cool.

31DC2013 Day 13 - animal print

I had a different manicure in mind also with zebra stripes buttttt I couldn't find the pictures. :( I know I've seen them recently but couldn't find the folder. 
Don't get me wrong these are cute too. This is two days in a row of both hands!

31DC2013 Day 12 - stripes

This was my first experience with stripping tape, naturally it was a 'try all the designs' work of art.
It's busy but still tasteful.

They were inspired by this tutorial by CutePolish on YouTube. So fun and soo easy!

31DC2013 Day 7 - black and white

 Day 7 - black and white, this is a design I actually wore not that long ago.
These pics are taken before clean up. Honestly, I am too lazy to clean up, it just pick off the messy-ness the next day. I never said I was professionally, nor do I pretend to be!
Anyway I really liked how these turned out, black and white look so classy!

31DC2013 Day 5 - blue

Two days in a row of flakies, but the silly thing is I don't think I have worn flakies much since then!
So day 5 is blue, I've done blue french tips! But look at those colours...

31DC2013 Day 2 - Orange

Here is day 2, Orange nails.
Pretty straight forward, butterfly nails.

Bonus pic! The glitter I used was DeSol and they turned a dark brownish/black in the sun. Kind of cool but it also kinda creeped me out! haha

Day 3 tomorrow...yellow!

31DC2013 Day 1 - Red

Soo I haven't posted in forever, my nails are always painted in fact I've celebrated my 4 year anniversary. Of course I haven't had this blog that long. But enough of that.

I've deceived to join this 31 day challenge, which should be interesting from me. I'll tell you straight up I am not doing these nails daily, in fact I am dipping into the archives. I don't think it's cheating, it's all work I have done and hasn't been posted anywhere and I don't paint my nails daily. So I'm just going to go with it!

Here is day one the prompt is Red. I did these red splatter for Dexter, I kind of was obsessed to the show and watched them all, but I haven't got caught up on the last season. Here they are:

Here is what you have to look forward to:

Come back tomorrow to see what I have for orange...
