Hey Everyone!

A little while ago I caved and bought the bundle monster image plates (fauxnad) from amazon.com (if you're looking for it just search for "nail art" in amazon)

First are the close ups of the images on each of the 21 plates with the review to follow.

Street Style - Konad Tutorial - M64

Hey all!

This is the most recent video tutorial of mine.
It's another Konad stamping tutorial.

It wasn't necessarily inspired by anything but definitely reminds me of the lines on the street.

The Cheshire Cat's Cousin

Hey all!

So I loved the look of my Cheshire Cat nails so much I decided to do it again with different colors.
Here I used Joe Fresh's Gun Metal with Rimmel's Black Satin on top. (of course I also applied a top coat - I used Seche Vite)
I love how this turned out!!!

Also: FYI:  I just checked out Joe Fresh's website b/c I couldn't remember the name of the polish I used and apparently they have a matte top coat!  For those CAnadians looking for an affordable matte top coat for this fall season, apparently you need to check out your local Joe Fresh boutique - or your local SuperStore that has a Joe Fresh section.
Happy Matte Hunting!

Graded Pink - Konad Stamping Tutorial


Hope everyone's doing well.  I'm just chillin at my parents place.  Came home this week for an interview.  It's on thursday morning.  Wish me luck!

In the meantime, I got a comment/request for more konad tutorials on my youtube channel.  and voila!  I managed to do a couple the night before my flight.

I will say that I prefer the second one (that will be posted this weekend) but the first one is also very girly and pretty.  So if you're into that kind of nail design, you're in luck!

Click the 'read more' below to see the video tutorial!
Have a great week everyone!

Cheshire Cat Nails

Hey All!

Here's my newest video tutorial!
Not actually inspired by the cheshire cat, unless you count post-rationalizing its influence ;)
Basically the end design reminds me of the cheshire cat from alice in wonderland.

Of course you can definitely try this in different colors too.  I think black and grey or silver would look wicked too!
For the tutorial keep reading...

I'm giving thanks to my friends, family and the fortune in my life.
As much as sometimes things in life can suck, there's always something that's great about it too.  
For those Canadian followers, I hope you're having a wonderful Thanksgiving long weekend!  and for those of you international followers, I hope your weekend was wonderful also!


Tutorials from the Recent Past

So I kind of feel like I'm putting my less beautiful stuff on my blog lately.  and I feel like that's unfair.
Although Youtube is my primary public place where I post my nail designs, my blog followers shouldn't get any less right?  If anything you should get more!
So here's a couple tutorials to catch you up to what i've been doing lately!

Of course, as always, to stay tuned in to my most recent nail art tutorials please subscribe to my Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/miss80million.
If you don't have/want to get your own youtube channel to follow me there, by all means just stay tuned here and I'll post here as often as I can :D

This one's one of my faves!
Like most of you, my abstract nail designs are my faves too!

More Random Doodling - Doodle Dots

Hey all!
Here another little doodle.
Not really sure where I was trying to take design, but thought I would post it anyway.
What do ya think?

Lets say these ones are called "Doodle Dots"

I think this one is my favorite (minus the imperfect dots)

NOTD: Blue/Purple Doodling

Hi All!

Here's an old NOTD that I photographed but forgot to post.  This was a quick design trial that I wore as a manicure for a few days in September.  The background color was Black Satin by Rimmel.  The white in all cases was French White Nail Tip Liner by Rimmel.  The Purple was a Nicole by OPI's Virtuous Violet and the blue was Peacock by Joe Fresh, and the green was Emerald City by Sally Hansen.

This design on my left thumb and pinkie was a precursor to Green Octopus.

One Recent Nail Design Trials I forgot to post last time

Hey All!
I thought I had posted all of the nail tips that I had done trial designs on last time, but it turns out that I forgot one.  This one I did quite a while ago.  Around the time I did the candy striped one and the blue bubbles one with the rhinestones.

I really like how this one turned out.
This one is called "Deep Blue".  It definitely has references to the
ocean in it, even though, like the "Green Octapus" and
"Cellulose" it was originally inspired by a computer image.
This was was based on a powerpoint background or something
like that.
