Gummibears nail art

These gummibears are such bad liars.... I can see right through them!

I had myself some fun with my clear 3D sculpting gel ;-) I mixed a couple of OPI Color Paints polishes with a blob of sculpting gel to build up the gummi bears bit by bit!

They are so SQUISHY!!!

Snowy landscape nail art

The first snow has been sighted here in the Netherlands! It's not staying on the ground yet but gosh, it's pretty to watch :D Who knows, maybe tomorrow will be white!

I love doing landscapes like this. This was an easier one in the sense that there wasn't much detail to add, besides the trees.... but also hard because even when I was done, it felt unfinished, with all the white parts.

Hand painted with acrylic paint as always. I always use a polish base to paint on, and a polish top coat, so I kind of 'sandwich' the paint in between the layers of polish.

Boat ripples nail art

Aye aye, matey! Water we going to do aboat all these ripples!!!

I used Madam Glam Jungle Beat for the sea and the ripples. It's almost too smooth to be real XD

The tiny little boat was made with a piece of balsa wood. It's really soft wood, almost like uhm.... foam? So it's easy to carve. I used a box cutter to carve the miniature boat, painted it, and voilá! Now all we need is tiny little people!

I received Madam Glam Jungle Beat as a press sample. Opinions expressed are 100% my own and not influenced in any way other than the quality of the product itself.

Sign language nail art

I've always wanted to learn sign language! I just know a couple of words, and the alphabet. Can you see what these hands are saying?

The base is the absolutely gorgeous Takko Lacquer Ruby Quartz that I got from Color4Nails. Isn't it magical? There's so much going on in real life that I can't even begin to show in a photo!

I painted the hands with acrylic paint. They could have been better, maybe they look a little bit dirty.... but hey, you have to be able to talk even if you have dirty hands!

Oh hey look! The nails are painted too!

Patronus nail art

My mom and I are playing Lego Harry Potter on the Wii, and yes, my mom is super cool like that :-p The other day I was just kind of doodling on my nails, and a Patronus appeared! I added glow in the dark effects for kicks ;-)

I used a variety of Serum No. 5 polishes to draw the moon, the Patronus, and the.... I don't know what they are. Star speckles? I used Serum No. 5 Solar Power, Atomic Peach, Awesome Blossom, Raspberry Delight, and Guiding Lights.

The base is Artistic Nail Design No Taming My Twinkle and it's the perfect base for a starry night. It's also gorgeous on its own, as you can see in last year's review.

Also, don't forget about the Black Friday sale still going on for the rest of the weekend! You get 40% off of EVERYTHING in my shop, there's free worldwide shipping, and a lil' something extra in your package. You don't need a code, just throw stuff in your cart and enjoy!
