Spring has Sprung! China Glaze Def Defying Stamping

It is currently 53 degrees, and that makes me very happy :). Flowers aren't up yet but it is close enough. I am officially in spring colors and this manicure is perfect!

This is China Glaze Def Defying. I then stamped BM with Konad's white polish. I adore this manicure, it was what I wore for Easter.

Kelsie's Nail Files Contest

This nail art is based on the No. 9 by Piet Mondrian:

I started with a base of Zoya Avery, then randomly added spots and stripes and squares of various blues: China Glaze First Mate, China Glaze For Audry, Essie Absolutely Shore, and Sinful Colors Why Not. 

I then used a black striper to create lines like those in the painting to divide the colors. 

I really like the way these turned out, I've provided a picture of each hand, since they looked much differently. I got a bunch of compliments on these! :D

Red Cross Nails

I did these a while ago so I don't actually remember the polishes... I did these on the day the Red Cross came to my office for a blood drive. I got turned away to give blood because my iron count was low... but at least my nails were cute!

Football Playoff Nails #1

Here is the first in my hopefully 3-manicure series, I will have a manicure for every game the patriots play in the playoffs!

I started with my favorite navy blue: China Glaze First Mate, and topped it with Finger Paints Santa's Magic.  I used Kleancolor's Cappuccino for the football and mattified the whole thing on all fingers.

For the football I matted the football and then used Cappuchino to make polkadots for texture and added a strike (though it should have been white!)

Santa Clause is Coming to Town

Santa Nails!

OPI Hey Vito is my Car Red-y with a white "T" drawn with white, a black line drawn across , and a gold best buckle in the middle. This was one of the easiest designs I've done recently, and it actually turned out well enough to put up here :).

Here are my santa nails:
