From all my heart !

Yes with this manicure i am giving away a piece of my heart to my beloved reader :)
Wow, i guess this is the most "Hearty" manicure i ever had.
I realized that i missed stamping a lot, recently i was all about hand painting,m that have not done much of the Konad.
I am eying really hard all those new image plates available at OC Nails - they are delightful, i should definitely get it.

PERFECTLY PINK

This is my "perfectly pink" client. She loooooves pink so these nails are perfect for her. I custom mixed a glitter just for her. I named the glitter mix "cindie". Super cute nails for a super cute client!

These nails are acrylic in shocking pink and nebula. This client was a little shocked by the shocking pink but I think this might just be the start of her future pink nails.

New nails and ring

This is what i came up yesterday . I really love love love the colors and the design, especially how it is on the ring, however it looks for me, like i need longer nails to really pull it off.
I ll keep the ring and do this design again, on longer nails


WARNING!

This is a warning to all of my clients: I just went a little crazy buying new nail art stuff. It may be even harder to choose what you want on your nails at your next appointment but don't worry, they will be super cool!
On these nails I used glitter from sparklesnailproducts.com.

I created little 3d acrylic flowers all over these nails.

This is a mix of clear glitter I created that I named "Brandy" after a super cool client of mine!

Custom rings to match Nail design

Hello my Dear Readers.
I want to introduce you thE idea of custom made rings that would match nail design. I saw some pictures online and i think it looks really polished and stunning. The minute i saw this idea, i decided that i am going to have it :) For those sets i made freehand painted design, but i believe that Konad Patterns will work really great as well
As a base, i used transparent resin rings that comes really chip and in variety of sizes - i ordered it from e-bay - for about $8 for 50 pc. Rings can be painted with both - acrylic paints or regular polishes - to match fingernails designs.
When design is gone from the nails i guess ring can be left as a souvenir, or thrown away as disposable.
Please let me know how do you like it? On those pictures rings and nails that i made for my girlfriends this weekend, i was glad to know that they loved it. Would you try it yourself?
Sakura for Natasha

And sexy "Viktoria" for my friend Vika

Star Sky

Hello Dear Reader.
Having this manicure makes me feel very romantic, looking at those nails is like watching starts in a night sky with someone very special. :)
I think this turned really pretty.
Also i apologize for the lack of posting all the last week, it s just that none of my manicure ideas turned well enouth that i would like to share with you guys. However, i got my inspiration back tonight, so i have plenty of fabulous looks for this week. Stay Tuned

Aquarium Nails Again!

Hello my sweet dear readers and Nail-Art Lovers.
For a long time i was wondered about aquarium nails - is it for real? Can you really have it on your hands? How those are done?
(By the way if you still wonder what aquarium nails are, please read this post, that i had long long time ago POST )
So today i want to share with you 2 videos that i found on youtube recently. OMG! If i will ever get acrylics, i want it to be like this! I know a lot of people dont really love it very much and think that aquarium nails looks weird, but i probably have a weird nail taste, i think those nails are just amazing. I will definitely go for those, if ever find a local technician who could do those.
So here is the video od the aquarium nails on the actual hand, do you like it? The only thing i woudl change, is that i would not make a bottom transparent.

and here is the video that explains how to make those nails, really worth watching, because it does revel the history, and i am so thankful to the author.

ANNIVERSARY!

I can't believe that it has been 1 year since I started nail school. It has been quite an amazing year and I couldn't have done it without my amazing clients. Thanks for putting up with me and allowing me to experiment with all of my crazy nail art ideas on you. Here is to another year of learning as much as I can about nails and everything that goes with them so that I can keep getting better.
On these nails I mixed every kind of pink glitter pieces that I own and added red hearts. To finish I painted white dots and xoxo.

FINALLY! I finally got the 6 new opi gel polish colors that I have been waiting for since September! This color is "opi ink". I have 26 opi gel polish colors now. Gel polish lasts for 2-3 weeks with no chipping! FABULOUS DARLING!

These have fimo clay roses in them that I found at etsy.com.

These nails have fimo clay conversation hearts that I purchased from kennickkreations.com. They say "babe" and "honey".

This is silver acrylic with blue mylar and black polish stripes.

This is a glitter from sparklesnailproducts.com I added some of my own crazy personality in there like always. This is one of those pictures that you really need to click directly on it to get the best view.

Happy Valentines!

Retro red nails

Hello dear readers.
I am super tired right now, so i ll just make a quick post with some pictures.
Unfortunately i broke few of my nails recently, so i had to cut it all off.
So decided to march my short red nails with my pedicure, and in fact i really love the effect.
A little Vamp but i believe very stylish looking . What do you think?



Zoya Reverie Review - Part II

Hello Dear Readers!
Today is time for Part II of the new Zoya Reverie Collection
4) Reece - is a shiny berry based light fuchsia - the color is adorable and have lots of shimmer in it.


5) Adina - this is a total hit of the collection and an absolute "must have" for spring. It is a deeply shimmered dual chrome with the satin tender violet base - ADORABLE! I was so excited about this particular polish and it did no disappoint me. I think it will be also perfect for pedicure and as a base for patterned stamping in white or black. I am also dying to see what it will look like under the matte top coat

6) Laney - Last bu not least :) At first this polish look a little ordinary - just another silver polish. But unlike other silver polishes in my collection, this one have no structure in it, and look very smooth and oily.

To sum up - the Reverie Collection from Zoya is a very nice thing to start your spring with.
Each of the colors is very special, and i am deeply in love with all of those polishes.
Stay tuned for some shocking news about my nails - that are coming up tomorrow
