I "Toed" You Cheetah Glitter

I decided to compliment my blue Calgel fingernails by doing a blue/cheetah themed pedicure. For this look, I used 5 nail polishes plus my favorite topcoat, Seche Vite. Right now, I really like those random looks where each nail is different, so I decided to try one myself. This was my first time experimenting with cheetah print, and I was amazed at how easy it is. Surprisingly, my mom loves my nails as it's more on the fun side. Haha...she's usually into those classic reds. But I really like this design too, especially since I blinged it out. After all, everything's better with glitter, right?! This design only took about 30 minutes, so it's really simple and fast. For the cheetah printed nails, I used "white" by Nabi for the base and Art Club's Black Hologram for the cheetah print (it's the skinny brush one). I randomly filled in some of the cheetah prints with Tiffany Imposter by Finger Paints using my dotting tool, and for the remaining, I placed swarovski crystals. For the black/blue glittered nails, I used a black polish from Konad (I don't see a's the polish meant for stamping. I had to use this since I don't own any black nail polish besides this one and my skinny brush one) and topped it with Nabi's "teal glitter". For my big toe, I wanted it more blingy so I rimmed the bottom of my nail with swarovski crystals. For the blue nails, I just used Tiffany Imposter (the one from the cheetah print) and placed one black triangular nail deco jewel thingie on the bottom of my nail. Lastly, I painted a generous layer of Seche Vite on all my toes and tadah!!!! Do you like it?

Glittery Star Nails

Next week my school has a carnival and this years theme is futuristic, but there's a little but of a space theme with it.  I plan on painting my nails for the carnival next week so I wanted to try some designs using a Konad stamp.

Belated Christmas Nails

I painted these for my Chistmas concert and never got around to posting it.  I used Essie Pretty Edgy with China Glaze Medallion and Deborah Lippmann Do Ya Think I'm Sexy so that my nails looked like little Christmas trees.

Salon Glitter Hello Kitty Nails: Pink Vs. Blue

On New Years Eve, I visited a salon called Salon Glitter. I decided to try Calgel, and I was very satisfied. On my first visit, I got sheer peach fine-glittered gradient tips, with light pink hologram glitters over it. I also had 3D pink and yellow acrylic hearts on each thumb, and on the ring fingers, I got a Hello Kitty face design with a pink acrylic 3D bow. I loved my Calgel nails and received so many compliments. The best part though was that it lasted for weeks, keeping its shine, with no chips! I could have kept them on  longer, but I wanted a touch-up since the only flaw was that my nails were growing. When I went back to Salon Glitter 3 weeks later, they filed off the gel and hearts, but I decided to keep the Hello Kitty design so they just refilled it. I decided to go for aqua blue fine-glitter with baby blue holograms this time, since I wear denim pretty much every day. I love my nails now, and today was the first day back since I got my nails touched-up and already have I received tons of compliments once again. Here are some pictures of my Calgel nails:
