Today I have a mani that totally came out of nowhere. When I sat down to paint my nails last nite my intentions were just to do Two quick coats of Sation's Bump in Beige and be done for the night.. BUT theeen...
I started with a base of Two effortless coats of Sation's Bump in Beige, which is my perfect mannequin hands "crelly"(jelly-creme). Then I applied Two easy coats of One and only Orange by Sation. This is a NEON Tangerine Orange. I've been craving neons lately so this color could not have come in at a better time. My camera was all "DO NOT WANT!" lool I'm sure you guys get the picture. This is BRIGHT! On my ring finger nail I did a gradient using Sammy's tutorial using OAOO and Sation's Fan the Flames Fuchsia. Don't worry, I will have swatches of all these Sation colors soon. I topped my ring fingers off with a coat of INM Northern Lights. On the rest of my nails I did a topper of Windestine's Asbestos which is a White micro glitter in a clear base.
I love this look. These nails make me happy! Also, I am seriously loving the gradient technique! I've done sponged gradients before but not using this technique and I really like the look of this method. I need to practice it but overall I am happy.
It has been about a month since Miss Muffin has made an appearance on LTHP and I was feeling bad about that... SO! I made it a point that when I got home from work last night I would absolutely work on a Muffin Monday for you guys. I figured I'd limit her choices to some of my most favorite Blues since it is the last day of April, Autism Awareness month. So here is what I did with her pick.... It got quite involved(for me) It's been a while since I've done nail art... And yes, I did all Ten nails :D. I fully intend on rocking these for a few days because I LOVE them!
It's been SO long since I've done nail art that I get to actually WEAR! I'm kind of excited (DORKNESS). So she picked for me Nicole by O.P.I Listen to your Mom-ager, I absolutely adore this shade of deep Royal Blue shimmer. So for the stamping I used Cheeky plate CH06 and White Konad polish. I feel like my stamping is a little sloppy since it's been a while since I've stamped, especially dots. For my index fingers I did Two coats of Windestine Asbestos over the Blue base (LOOOOOVE this nail!!). On my Ring and Thumbs I did matching rhinestone accents. The stones were a present.
Hee hee! MUFFIN!!! <3! She did not make this easy.
I just love this look! Maybe a bit "Holiday" but I could care less... It also comes off a bit prom... So it fits in at the same time haha!
So.. Epic nails are epic :D? Oh BTW, I am LOVING my new Cheeky stamping plates. This is probably my favorite set right now. I wish I had more hands!!
