X-ray nail art (glow in the dark)

Wouldn't we all like to have X-ray vision sometimes? I used to think my mom had the ability to see through walls, she always, ALWAYS knew what I was up to! I painted some X-Ray nail art for laughs, plus a video tutorial! Click to see more!

High voltage power lines nail art

You might have noticed a trend in the last few nail art designs I've posted. They all have to do with electricity and power, I thought it suited the High Voltage collection from SuperChic Lacquer pretty well, don't you? So today I have some power lines for you, but watch out, don't touch, because they'll give you one hell of a shock! Click to see more!

Plugged in nail art

This is the most annoying nail art I've ever done. It was SO inconvenient having two nails essentially on a leash! Obviously it's not for actual wear, just for fun. The background polish is SuperChic Lacquer Hot Finger and I think I should have used a thinner wire, and just glued it to the nails instead. Oh well :-p Click to see more!

The Flash getting a ticket, freehand nail art

Who's ready for the first season finale of The Flash tomorrow? I'm a big fan of superheroes, and the new Flash series has something whimsical, they don't take themselves too seriously and I LOVE that in a TV show. I mean, Buffy... *sigh* I whipped out my bottles of SuperChic Lacquer Splice and Tripped and made a nice smooth gradient, to paint The Flash getting a ticket for speeding! Click to see more!

Tribal butterfly nail art

I've always had a thing for tribal tattoos and prints, I don't know what it is. I started doodling with the idea of a tribal pattern in my head and this is what came out! I used two polishes from the SuperChic Lacquer High Voltage collection to color in the butterfly and make it look electric. There's a video tutorial too if you want to try your hand at it.

I don't usually do flowers... They get painted so often, usually by people much better at them than I am. But the theme for this month's HPB linkup is 'May flowers' so here they are! There's some tiny lines in this design but I have a video tutorial if you want to see how it's made. Click to see more!

Nail polish seduction video ft. SuperChic Lacquer

I was recently contacted by Jennifer from SuperChic Lacquer about sharing some of her products with you. I haven't really been doing reviews lately but I had seen pictures of this collection and I just could not say no! I figured a nice way to show off the beautiful holo of these polishes would be to make a video! I'd never done this before so I had no idea what I was getting myself into, or how to go about it.

Tools I used to record this video are a small square mirror, a white paper backdrop, the sun, my Sony DSLR A5100 and the complete 8-piece High Voltage collection from SuperChic Lacquer.

The backdrop kept being blown away by the wind. The sun overheated my camera, and me. It was hard to see the screen on the camera because of the sun. The sun kept disappearing behind a cloud right when I was recording. All in all it took me 8 hours to film and edit a 49 second video. So you'd better enjoy it!

I received all of the polishes in this article as a press sample for an honest review. Opinions expressed are 100% my own and not influenced in any way other than the quality of the product itself.

Balancing mice nail art

Today I have some nail art with a personal story behind it! Let's talk about the art first. The original picture is an illustration from a children's book by Ingrid and Dieter Schubert, called 'Mijn Held' (my hero). I tried my best to copy it exactly but it might have turned out a little bit more colorful :-p What can I say? It's my own personal touch. Click to see more!

Streetrat Aramis nail art

Don't rats make the most amazing pets? I know I love my boys (and some of you are big rat fans as well) so it was about time I did a rat inspired nail art design! I painted my boy Aramis on my nail, kind of street style chic, it was inspired by a drawing by Shennaki Tattoo. I hope you like it! Click to see more!
