Party Nails

I did these nails for a contest.  They are fun and festive!  On a sad note, I had to cut my nails after this.  I was just had to much breakage. So, I cut them down alot.  I'm trying not to be depressed about it.  They would be even shorter but I still have to use glue on one of them cause it broke far down.  Sigh.  Oh well.  Hopefully, they will grow back in a few months.

 The video hasn't posted yet.  But, it should in about an hour.

Entries to Madam Luck's 3000+ Subscriber Contest

Hello everyone, I attempted to enter Madam Luck's contest.  I kind of did this one for fun with no expectations.  I have never done a makeup tutorial, heck, most of the time I don't even wear it.  But because I was having a brain fart when I read the instructions, I ended doing a nail design and makeup design when I really didn't have to.  Oh well.  The contest is that you either create a nail design inspired by a makeup look or vice versa.  I did both.  For the nails, you really should at least watch the beginning of the video to see the color (which I had a hard time capturing with pictures).  I used the dragging method.  For the makeup, I decided to go very dramatic.  I'm linking both videos at the bottom.

Here is the makeup:

Blue Silver Abstract

Hi!  Today I am sporting a blue silver abstract.  I used the China Glaze Cheers to You polish from the Tis the Season collection and some nail art liners.  I also did another experiment I'll show you below using the paints I used for my ornaments.  Not sure I will do it again but it was an interesting experiment none the less.  I can't really go into detail because I have never seen anyone do the ornament designs that I do  So, it's an ancient Nikki secret.  Anyway, let me know what you think!

So, I purposely did each nail differently with different paint styles etc., because I was experimenting.

 This is example of my ornaments that I'm working on right now.  I basically affixed the mosaics I had created on the ornaments, on my nails.

Here is the demo of how to do the blue abstract on youtube.
