Funny thing this time around is that I knew the title of this post before I knew what design I was gonna do. Usually after I'm ready to post the next design, I'm struggling and straining to think of a title for the post. Perhaps I should try this more often, it might be a fun way to crank up my creative juices. I better start my list lol. My mom actually picked this vibrant blue base color and I just ran with it, of course I had to add something to make them sparkle heeheehee, so I added some rhinestones to my middle finger. Anyhoo on to the picture...

Once again I couldn't choose just one so instead I chose three (me and my color lol), anything bright and shiny I'm down for....well it has to be worked the right way. The idea I was going for was color oozing from one nail to the other, like a lava lamp, I think it was better conveyed on my left hand. I actually used three different base colors but it looks more like I used pink on one and green on the other...Oooo Green Lantern, anyone going to see that or going to see Ryan Reynolds I should say heeheehee?

My sister's goddaughter wanted me to do her nails, I took one look and she has these gorgeous long nail beds so how could I say no, right. I lucked out because all she wanted was some flowers (although I wouldn't have mind doing anything else). Kierra was super cooperative and even let me have fun with dots lol, and I added some rhinestones to make em sparkle--everyone enjoys a lil sparkle (I know I do). Anyways she picked this beautiful vibrant blue and another blue sparkle to top the base. I don't think you can see it's brightness in the pictures. Flower Power!

There's a first time for everything (well almost everything) and this is one of those times...my first time working with real flowers. I used purple, pink, and really tiny yellow flowers (they almost look like baby's breath but smaller). It was a lot harder than I thought it was gonna be. The challenge was not only to pick up the flowers but the place them exactly how I wanted them and to not break them. Talk about sweating bullets lol. I'll be honest it didn't turn out exactly how I wanted but I'm going to definitely give it another shot. Gosh darn you flowers! You win this time but I got next....dah duh duuuh (you know like the dramatic music in the movies...or not lol)
|For the base I used Orly's 'Viridian Vinyl', for the dots I used Nail Art Pen by Nubar 'Sunny Yellow' and I used real flowers (YAY!), all topped off with two coats of Seche Vite|

Who doesn't like a lil cherry pie? In all honesty I don't, crazy huh lol. Anyhow I do like cherry patterns, I think they're super cute on anything, whether its a shirt or jewelry, a keychain or a hairbow (Oooo some cherry shoes would be totally awesome, but if yal don't know by now I'm tellin ya, I LOVE shoes!!!!). I just wanted to try my hand at some sweet cherry nails, if only it was cherry-scented polish that would be totally awesome too *sniff sniff* MMmmmm...
|As a base I used Orly's 'Cotton Candy', for the cherry I used Kiss Brush-On Nail Art--Red and a dotting tool and for the stem/leaves I used L.A. Colors Art Deco--Black, all topped off with two coats of Seche Vite|
|I tried to hold my hands a different way but the right one got all weird on me lol, better luck next time|
