Help me win some Bundle Monster

Hi Everyone!

I was told about a contest that Bundle Monster is having on their facebook page.  It was suggested I enter.  So, of course, I did!

I used my "Sunflower in a Green Patch" design.

I'd be really grateful if you could take a minute to check out my design and "Like" it on Bundle Monster's facebook page.  (that's how they count the votes)

Here's the link: My Entry for Bundle Monster's Contest

Voting is open from today until April 20th.

Thanks so much for your help gals!

Stay tuned for a new tutorial up later today!  (or tomorrow... depending on your time zone ;)

Showing My Tiger Stripes - Nail Art Tutorial

I had a request on my Youtube Channel to do an animal print nail tutorial by hand (not using konad or bundle monster stamping plates.)

This one is one that was originally lost when I lost the data from my external hard drive, so it was a second attempt.  It looks MUCH better than my original.  :)

It was pretty fun to do and is as simple as a little bit of sponging and a bunch of straight horizontal lines.
It's not that original, but I hope you still enjoy it!

Materials Used:
OPI - Natural Nail Base Coat
China Glaze - Passion
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - White On
LA Colors Art Deco - Black
Seche Vite - Fast dry top coat

Cosmetic Sponge (from any drugstore)

Dirty Fence

Hey Everyone!

I LOVE this design!
I'm personally much more into the edgier nail designs than the girly one.  So, needless to say, I adore this one!  Hope you do too!
