All the right angles

I've done this style a few times with different colors, usually a lighter shade but decided i was in a dark mood. I used Essie - Sexy Divide & Wet & wild - Kaleidoscope. The gray polish i used just so happened to be a shade i kinda made on my own. My Sally Hansen Gunmetal was dried out so i mixed it with some SH - Whiteout and I ended up with the muted gray color.

Golden State Warriors

I think i'm on a roll , 2 manis in a week. I initially wanted to do some kinda starry nail. I picked out Essie Mezmerised. It's a royal blue creme. I tried out a star mani but did not look cute at all. with the NBA draft, i decided to some a team with the color blue. Since I'm from the bay, i picked the Golden State Warriors. This my first attempt a tape mani. HINT: LET YOUR BASE COLOR POLISH DR BEFORE TAPING!!!!  or else you wont get clean lines and the tape pulls out the nail polish so its pretty much ruined. I used Sally Hansen's insta-dri in lightening. NOT my fav polish from SH. The polish was really chalky and not a good formula, BUT it was the only yellow i had. Can you tell I messed up on my index finger? haha. shhhhhh!

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet

Wow, I haven't posted anything for a few weeks now. I've been swamped with projects and papers & i had spring break. Trying to get back into the grove of things. I recently bought some nail art off of eBay and couldn't wait to do a mani with it. The possibilities are endless. I used Essie Mod Square. Its a hot pink creme. The shade of pink reminds me of Barbie. Its absolute adorable alone but i wanted to do something a little more fun for spring.I think this would have looked better with a lighter pink but i didnt have any. Oh Wells. Stayed tuned for new post about an upcoming contest!!

What I used to decorate: (all bought on eBay)
-Rubber Roses
-Leaf Fimo Cane
-Small Ivory Pearls

Leopard nails

Who isn't a big fan of the leopard print?!  For this design, i wanted something subtle but still pops & of course another reason for me to use Matte About You. :D
