Save you a Spot!

When creativity goes on vacation, I tend to lean towards creating not-so-exciting Polka Dots nail art like this one. I created this using polishes - Revlon's Lily and Zoya's Darcy. SIMPLE is the word you are looking for.

Blue Dots

Hi all, today's nail art is another one of my inspiration nails. This one is inspired from The Beauty Department. It's a very very simple nail art done using dotting tool. The polishes that I have used are all Sally Hansen polishes - Celeb City, Gray by Gray and Pedal to the Metal.

To start with I added two coats of Sally Hansen's Gray by Gray. When it was dry I added different sized dots using Celeb City and Pedal to the Metal. The outcome looks really good. The best part was I got these two polishes - Gray by Gray and Pedal to the Metal for 89 cents on sale. Amazing price isn't it?


Hope you all like it. Enjoy.

Blooms and Bouquets

Spring is almost over and Summer is upon us(although it doesn't feel that way here in Los Angeles - it's been raining and gloomy lately and I haven't put my winter boots away yet!), so I decided to do some lovely floral nail design of these lovely round flowers. Not sure what to call them so I am going to leave it up to you to guess ;) Polishes used are - Butter London's - Cotton Buds, Union Jack Black, Silly Billy and Chanel's Dragon.

Checkered

I am constantly amazed by the color PINK and it's shades. I own a number of different PINK polishes from different brands and keep using them one way or the other. When I thought of this design, I couldn't have chosen any other color and shades to complete it with. Different polishes used here are - Zoya's Lolly, Revlon's Plum Seduction, OPI's Mod about You, Butter London's Fruit Machine and Jenna Hipp's Pinky Promise.

Arrow-ahead

I love a nail polish that I can wear for few days and freshen it up with something new. That's what I did with my new OPI's infinte Shine In Pursuit of Purple. You can see it's swatch HERE. After a few days of wear I added some white free-hand arrows on top of it, using OPI's My Boyfriend Scales the Walls. What do you all think? Like this look?

Nail-ed IT part 3

Hello Friends. I am very very excited to share with you that my Leopard print nail art got featured in the May/June issue of Nail It magazine. This is the third time they have featured my nail art in their magazine(you can see the previous magazine appearance here and here) and also couple of times on magazine's web page before (you can see it here, here and here).
