Nail art to welcome the new year

Happy New Year!!!! Or almost, that is. I'll be going into the new year about 8 hours before all my peeps in the US, how's that for awesomeness? I made a design on my nails for New Year's Eve, I saw this on Instagram, it was made by @victoriaoen. You should check out her account because she makes great designs!

Rat sketches on my nails

Hey! I only have some quick nail art for you today, but it's a cool one! I am TERRIBLE at sketching, so please pardon my drawings. But the idea is cool, and it's all mine *proud*

Daphine Polish Grape Is Favorite, revisited

I know what you're thinking... another blog post about polish, haha! Yup, but this here's something special. Daphine Polish was one of my first reviews on this blog, and that makes these bottles very valuable to me. They are on display in a heart shaped polish rack right next to my door, so every time I walk out of the room, they are waving at me. It was about time that I revisited this beauty!

Let It Glitter is hoping for snow this year

I have another Dutch indie brand for you today! I found Let It Glitter! a couple of weeks ago and I knew I had to try her polish. Suzanne's polish hails from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and she's all about glittaahhhh!!!! Because her shop is in Dutch, I'll make this post bilingual for once. Click to continue!

Ik heb nog een Nederlands indie merk voor jullie vandaag! Ik vond Let It Glitter! een paar weken geleden en ik wist meteen dat ik haar nagellak moest proberen. Suzanne's nagellak is afkomstig uit Rotterdam, Nederland, en ze richt zich op glitterrrrrr!!!! Omdat haar winkeltje in het Nederlands is, maak ik voor deze keer mijn blogbericht tweetalig.

Wintery snow globe nail art with extra flakage on top

Hi girls! Is it snowing where you are? We usually have to wait for snow in the Netherlands, but it's so cold already! I hate the cold. I want to kick the cold in the shins.

My FB nail art group's weekly challenge was snowflake themed this week, so I got out my detail brush and drew a snow globe.

First, I did a gradient using Barry M Blueberry, OPI What's With The Cattitude? and Hema 833. Then, I took a small detail brush and some white acrylic paint and drew the outline of the globe. I made the glassy glare with a sponge.

The rest is just plain ol' simple acrylic paint and detail brush work.

<-- This picture was taken in daylight. Honestly, I like the big photo better, it was taken in my light box.
I got the idea from this drawing that I made in Illustrator a couple of years ago. It was one of my own projects, I was bored at my internship so I started teaching myself more tricks in Illustrator. I made 12 illustrations, one for every month (see where I'm going with this?). Yup, this is January's picture.

Like it? Love it? Let me know!

More cupcakes on my nails! Hand painted nail art

Aren't these delicious? I made them for the weekly challenge in a nail art group I'm part of, it's a great group of people and I really feel comfortable discussing my nail fails there LOL This one does not qualify for that!

GlitterBunny Polish Gummiberry

Yes yes! It's time for another squishy GlitterBunny! I absolutely adore this brand, all of her polishes have kind of a 'secret sparkle' to them which makes this brand stand out from all the rest. My parents bought me a polish to cheer me up because of my surgery, and this is what I received in the mail this Friday!
