Purple Mani


I know I've been gone for a long time. But, I'm going to try and post here and there.

This is a simple manicure.  I used OPI Ink, a silver liner, and some CND that had a purple shimmer (optional). I extended the liner along my cuticle line.

Halloween Contest Entry


I entered The Manicured Monkey Halloween contest with this design. I wanted to do something a little different so I used crackle polish.  I'm using China Glaze black crackle and Cruisin, as well as Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure.  Here is the you tube tutorial.  HERE

If you like my design the best, please vote for me here at TheManicuredMonkey.  And again, thanks for looking at my blog!

Green & Gold Abstract Nail Design


I love abstract designs.  So, I decided to do another one.  This time I used some folk art metallic paint, Green polish (China Glaze Jolly Holly) and Nubar Jewel.  I sponged on the gold, then Jewel, and then I dipped a small straw into Jolly Holly and used that to make the green lines.  I painted a line on the outside to define it a bit, and then I added some rhinestones.  Two coats of top coat later, this what it looked like.  You Tube Tutorial Video HERE.

Feelin Fishy Nail Art

Hi everyone,

I'm still battling my eye disease.  So, it's very hard for me to see detail (trust me I'm thankful nails are small because you can't see the screwups in real time lol).  However, since I blow the pictures up, you'll have to forgive some of the mistakes.  I still think they are really cute though.  Here is the You Tube Video  HERE .

Purple Watercolor Abstract Flowers


Sorry I've been gone for a while. I have my eye condition back so it's harder for me to see.  Been a crazy year with that.  I finally got my computer back though!  Anyway, tried to do a flowerish design with water color.  I wanted it to be a little different.  Here is the you tube tutorial HERE.

Sorry for the delay but I've been having computer issues and crazy busy at work.  I'm on a laptop which is so much harder for me to edit on.  I also have been having bad luck.  I broke 1 nail before vacation, 2 during, and 1 after.  3 were on my right hand and I broke the middle finger on my left but was able to mend that one.  My right hand just really doesn't want to cooperate.  So, I filed my left hand down alot.  Anyway, here is this weeks manicure. The you tube tutorial link is HERE.

If you want to see a specific color next week, leave a message in the comments.
