Is it too early for Christmas Nails?

If it is then let's call these Redskins nails! Because that is actually what I initially was thinking about when I did this mani. See, coming from the D.C. area I was raised a die-hard Redskins fan! Trust me, its one of the most depressing teams to be a die-hard fan of! So, to show my Redskins spirit, I wanted to create a burgundy and gold nail look, and when it was done it looked really Christmasy, so I held off showing it to you until now.
I started this look with China Glaze Sugar Plum, which I think was in CG's holiday collection last year.
Then I did some gold glitter sponging on my tips and moons.  I can never decide which look I like better.  The gold glitter I used was a combination of Sinful Colors Paris and Milani Jewel FX in Gold.

So, if it is too early for Christmas nails, pretend these are Redskins nails, and if you aren't Redskins fans, then pretend these are Christmas nails! :D

Happy Thanksgiving to anyone celebrating tomorrow!  Anyone know of any good Black Friday nail deals?  If so, please share! 

Also, don't forget about my two giveaways going on right now:  Free Jewelry Giveaway and China Glaze Let It Snow Giveaway

Zoya Cynthia gets the peacock treatment

I just adore Zoya's Cynthia. It is such a pretty murky blue-green color. I thought it would be a perfect shade to stamp these gorgeous peacock feathers on from BM212. I stamped the design with the Sally Hansen Color Quick in Turquoise Chrome.

As you can tell I tried the design going in both directions (one way on each hand).  I can't decide which I like better.  Feel free to sound off in the comments.  And tell me what your favorite color from Zoya's fall collection is.

NOTD: Plum Butterflies

Simple look for you today. Recently I went out and got a few colors from the Sally Hansen Salon Complete line. Last week I showed you the adorable Fairy Teal And today I have Plum Luck stamped over Plums the Word with Bundle Monster 205.

I think plum is such a fabulous fall color! I'm so existed that Plum Luck stamped so well! I'll have to keep that in mind for future looks!  This is my first time using this design, and I have to say, I love these bigger images Bundle Monster gave us in their latest set.

Gray Sparkly Matte Nails

What is it about Sparkly Matte nails that is just sooo hot? I pin looks like this all the time on Pinterest, so I thought it was about time that I tried it myself. I started with a base coat of Zoya Kelly. I LOVE THIS COLOR! It is srsly one of my favorite Zoyas.
On top of Kelly, I sponged this glitter from NYC called Starry Silver Glitter just on my tips to give it a bit of a gradient look.
And then of course, I took this look to the next level with a matte topcoat. Mine is by hard candy, but any of the others will do just as good.
Want to know why I haven't been posting as much lately?  Its because I fall in love with looks like this and wear them for days on end.  So stinking cute.

Neon Chevron French Tips

This post is from the vault, man do I miss my long nails! I can't wait until they grow back to this length! *sigh* I got this really cute Sally Hansen color recently (Fairy Teal), and I wanted to use it right away. So I did a free-hand chevron tip with Milani's Totally 80's accented with a black striper

I think chevron tips are a great way to change up the typical french manicures.

Crazy Animal Print Nails

Confession time: I have a very crazy pair of pajamas! And every time I wear these, I think omg I have to do a nail look inspired by these jammies! Here is the inspiration fabric:
And here are my nails:

This look was achieved by started with a white base.  I then sponged a light purple, a light pink, dark pink, and dark purple to create the gradient look.  Then, I used a black striper to draw the zebra stripes and the leopard spots. 

So, what do you think?  Did I match my inspiration well?  What weird things have inspired your nails lately?  Let me know in the comments!

Tiffany Box Nails

As you may know by now, Pinterest is my crack! I am on it all the time, pinning awesome things. I have a whole board of nail inspiration, and whenever I have no idea what I want to do with my nails, I always go there for ideas. That is where today's manicure comes from. I saw this adorable Tiffany Box inspired mani a long time ago, and decided to recreate it and put my own spin on it.

Base color is China Glaze For Audrey, which is just the perfect Tiffany blue. I free-handed the bows with a white striper polish.  I think this would be a fun look for the holiday season in different colors, so I hope it inspires you! Let me know what you think!  And if you are on Pinterest, comment with a link to your board so I can follow you!
