Snails on my nails


I've got snails on mah nails!

The base is Tonic Polish Lunar Lust that I got from Color4Nails. It's so multi faceted!

I painted the snails with acrylic paint and my Roubloff 00 detail brush from Adnails Manucure. Their little shells are made super colorful by adding a little of each polish in the Rainbow Flowers Bath Collection by MooMoo's Signatures. It's so adorable!
I actually found a little snail today and took pictures of him, but forgot to take pictures of him *with* my painted nails. Duh. Must be the heat. I'll put a picture of him in my stories on Instagram!

Also, there's only 3 days left to grab yourself some hand painted jewelry from my shop! http://piggieluv.storenvy.com/ Made with love ❤ I love sending you guys a little piece of my art to go live overseas! It's like world domination XD

Holo diamond dress nail art


Isn't her dress looking faaaaabulous? I would love to have one of those! And her muscular shoulders too XD

The gorgeous blue base is a mattified Picture Polish beauty called Blue (how fitting!) that I got from Color4Nails, I used the OPI matte top coat over it. The lady was painted with acrylic paint!

Aaaaand now for the kicker, the dress... ahhh that dress! I just applied some SuperChic Lacquer Marvel Liquid Macro top coat and POOF dipped my wet nail into the Galaxy Holo Pigment from Nailland Hungary! Instant sparkles!! Until May 31st, feel free to use the code NLPL10 for 10% off your order (not an affiliate code) to celebrate my 5th blogiversary!!

Btw she did have a face.... I painted it after applying top coat, was actually kind of okay with how it turned out, then forgot to top coat again and went to wash my hands vigorously to get the holo dust off.... Bye bye face XD I actually saw it wash away under the tap water and cursed myself for it!!

Summer in the countryside nail art

Nothing to disclose

It's been so long since I did an art recreation! This one is inspired by a painting by John Sloane and it hits me right in the summer feels. I grew up in a small rural town so I'm used to corn fields everywhere around me. Granted we don't have gorgeous houses like this but the tree, oh yes the tree!

I really loved painting the wood fence. The tree was a bit harder but the fence poles were like 3 color mixed and bam. Poles. I love it when all it takes is some shadows and highlights and it makes an actual object!
Did I have bionic eyes while painting this design? I'm not sure how everything turned out so sweet, detailed and painter-ish (yes I just made that a word) but I love it. I think I'm kinda proud of this one :)

Popcorn nail art


I wanted to tell you a popcorn joke.... but I figured it was too corny :-p I also have a popcorn ring & a set of earrings in my shop! Free worldwide shipping too!

I started with a beautiful red holo base called Cherub by SuperChic Lacquer. I painted the pattern with acrylic paint and my Berry Wine brushes from Winstonia, they are perfect for fine lines like this!

And here comes the thing that adds the 'POP': I made actual popcorn kernels using Madam Glam 3D gel. I used the white one called 'Sugar' and I LOVE this stuff! I also get to share a discount code for 30% with you, just add NAR30 at checkout :) (not an affiliate code)

I added some color with acrylic paint, and now it actually resembles popcorn :D

Mirror image butterfly nail art


Do you know the feeling when you meet someone and it's like you see yourself reflected in them? Like they're your soulmate? Yeah neither do I but just... look at my nail art instead :-p

I wish the two halves would have been closer together, next time maybe I should use something like a reflective metal sheet, tin foil, or something.... something without that distance.

The gradient gives me life! I used Faby Marry Me Robbie!!, Color Club East Austin and Faby Hold my hand... for it, and they just fit SO well together! The neon-ness of East Austin brings up the brightness of the other 2 polishes :D

I applied some What's Up Nails Holographic Flakies on top of it, they complete the look and make it happy as ever!


I painted the butterfly with acrylic paint and my Gamax 00 detail brush, and I also made a special effect using What's Up Nails Dream Powder. I've noticed that multichromes show up awesome in mirrors! When shown at the right angle, you can get all the colors in one image.

So while this design is a little bit 'out there', I hope you like it and can see the butterfly as a whole!
