Fishtail Mani Using OCC Nail Lacquer (Don’t Laugh)

OCC Nail Lacquer

I’ve been on a nail art kick lately, trying to do some new designs I haven’t tried before. This time around I decided on trying the fishtail mani, as some like to call it.

Once again I used the tutorial that Sarah from Chalkboard Nails did because it seemed like an easy, fairly straight-forward method.

The colors I decided to use were from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics and are called Dangerous, Something and Wasabi. I think these three shades go together perfectly!

Blue, Pink and Black Leopard Spot Mani

Blue-Pink-Black Leopard Spot Mani

In the mood for nail art the other day I decided to push myself a bit and do a pattern I had never tried: leopard spots.

One of my go-to resources for nail art tutorials is Chalkboard Nails. Sarah has great photos and explanations of how to do many different nail art patterns, so I watched this video and followed the instructions. It worked really well I think!

This isn’t really a tutorial but I did take some (iPhone 5S) photos along the way. Sorry for the quality, they aren’t meant to be blown up this large.

Cat Fur Manicure Tutorial

Cat Fur Manicure How-To

Good morning!

Today I’ve got a perfect manicure for those who might be a little, oh I don’t know, avant garde or daring. It’s what I call a Cat Fur Manicure. It’s actually not as time consuming as a lot of nail tutorials out there, which is a good thing for someone as impatient as I am. It can take a little practice though!

So what do you need for this tutorial? Not much. All you need is a base coat, some nostril scissors (or other small scissors will work) and some cat fur!

St. Patrick’s Day Dot Manicure for 2014

St. Patrick's Day Dot Manicure

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Today we celebrate the patron saint of Ireland named Saint Patrick. I’m not religious in any way, shape or form however I have always loved this holiday because I love all things Irish and green! I’m not sure I have any Irish in my blood. I know I have Hungarian, Scottish, English and possibly Czechoslovakian in me though, so that’s close enough, haha. ;)
