Inspired by Rise of The Guardians, Again: Pitch Black and the Sandman


Here's another nerdy manicure! Once again inspired by the new Dreamworks film, Rise of the Guardians. I based this one on Pitch Black and the Sandman. I loved the effects used for these two characters. Really pretty swirling clouds of golden dreams and  blue-black nightmares.

Jack Frost



My boyfriend took me to see Rise of the Guardians during Thanksgiving break. I like animated films, but I'll admit this one was especially awesome. So good, in fact, that I decided to honor it with a manicure.

OPI Designer De Better


Well, I just got back from spending Thanksgiving in Minnesota. I had originally planned to share this manicure before I left but I ran out of time.

Distressed Lace



Today's mani actually started out as a mistake. Instead of stripping it and starting over I decided to play around and see if I could salvage it.

This is the result.

Faking a Gold Flake Top Coat




Just a short post today. I'm moving in December so money is a little tighter than usual. As much as I would love to splurge on polish I have to resist the urge. That means I have to get creative.

Rainbow Grunge Tutorial



I was asked by some DeviantArt users for a tutorial for the rainbow grunge nails I posted on Monday. I wrote a quick one up today and took some step by step photos as well.

Blackheart Glow-in-the-Dark and Black Light Reactive Polishes from Hot Topic




I've been telling myself that I need to cut down on how much nail polish I buy. I'm seriously running out of places to put all of it, not to mention the fact that I have more than I could ever use. Seriously, how many polishes does one girl really need?

But when I saw that Hot Topic had a sale on their Blackheart Beauty Polishes I decided that I'd reign in my polish obsession some other day.

Pink Water Marble




I had the idea to do a galaxy manicure today but it just wasn't working out. My colors all looked too saturated and they weren't blending well. So I stripped it and tried again. Still not quite right. I decided to save it for another day and do a water marble instead.

1980s Inspired Rainbow Grunge




I blame this one on the fact that my boyfriend has been listening to 80s music all day. So, in a way, this manicure was brought to you by Journey, Stix and Survivor.

Blue Roses with Zoya Natty




Today's manicure was done on a whim. I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do, I only knew that I'd be using Zoya Natty, which I won in a contest hosted by Katee over at A Girl and Her Polish.
