Happy Friday cat nail art

Nothing to disclose

Happy Friday cat is here to tell you: it's not so bad! Just two more days and you'll get to go back to work, school, and regular week life ;-)

This one's inspired by @chibirdart, I really love those sweet, uplifting drawings <3

The base is Serum No. 5 Blue Blazes and the cat is mostly Atomic Peach and some Orange You Sunny. Text & details are painted with acrylic paint.

Gerbera nail art

I don't usually paint flowers, except for when I do. And when I do, I add glitter! And details!!! And glitter!

The glittery sparkly base (which is way better IRL) is SuperChic Lacquer She Wears The Pants. At first I thought it was black, but it's kind of purplish too and it keeps confusing me :-p

I painted the flower with acrylic paint and my Roubloff 00 detail brush.... like always. I swear I'm not boring and predictable!

I received SuperChic Lacquer She Wears The Pants as a press sample. Opinions expressed are 100% my own and not influenced in any way other than the quality of the product itself.

Archipelago (group of islands) nail art

Babes, I'm baaaack! I hope you all had (or are still having) a wonderful vacation! For that true summer vacation feeling, I made an archipelago, which is a group of islands. I added a little plane for fun :)

The base for this design is Picture Polish Instinct (which is really hard to photograph) and I added all the details with acrylic paint. I used a sponge, my fingers, and a brush to paint. Tadaa!

Negative comments HURT

It doesn't matter if it's your opinion, you're 'joking', or you say it's freedom of speech. If you behave like this on my page, you're probably doing it to someone else too and it disgusts me. Chances are that person has something going on in their life that makes these comments extra hurtful. Think this is an okay way to behave? Then please leave because I don't want you here. I choose to support other people in whatever they enjoy, without passing judgement. Nail art is supposed to be FUN! Luckily there are many of you who share this sentiment ❤

Sharing the love for @ane_li

This past week, the nail community got a shock as we learned that our sweet @ane_li has died. We're recreating her nail art and #sharingtheloveforaneli.

We've lost a dear friend, a talented artist, and a valued member of our nail art community. My nail art is as lost for words as I am right now.
