ARTSY WEDNESDAY Crackle

I was actually going to have to skip this week..for the first time since I started doing AW. Even though I didn't have a Crackle Manicure on My nails. I thought it My be nice to show a cute Crackle Neon Skittle Mani I did on My Mom.

The neon colors are all Color Club & I Used OPI Black Shatter for the Crackle.

Be sure & check out The Artsy Wednesday team for More Cracked Mamicures:

ARTSY WEDNESDAY Saran Wrap

This weeks Challenge was to make a Saran wrap Manicure...This was pretty easy it's just like sponging but instead of a sponge you just ball up a small piece of Saran Wrap then tap it onto a coat of wet polish...of course after you've already laid down a base color that's completely dry...
The end result is a really cool two toned look. I used blues & think mine looks like acid wash jeans :)

Polish used:
•OPI DS Sapphire
•Orly Decoded
•OPI Fly
•Julep Gunts
•Northern Lights Gold

Lady Dracula Manicure

I'm in the Halloween spirit today & wanted to do Dracula inspired nail Art. I went with the Vampy Lady Dracula Theme & I Loved how they turned out....I saw bloody manicures everywhere & was dying to do one. Everyone was doing bites, splatters or drips. I wanted My manicure to be bloody but a bit different so I went with fingerprints.

Do you like this look?
What kind of halloween looks ate you wearing?

ARTSY WEDNESDAY Season inspired

This weeks manicure is inspired by the current season. I live on the West Coast in California so the season is Fall. I was inspired by the leaves & sky. I chose a beautiful golden holographic color called CLASSIC by OPI, it's apart of the Designer Series. It's not really a huge contrast but as an accent on the Thumb & Ring finger I added 2 coats of Butter London's Tarts of Heart.

ARTSY WEDNESDAY GALAXY

Welcome to another week of ARTSY WEDNESDAY. Where a group of ten Nail artist vote on weekly themes and execute them based on interpretation or technique. This weeks theme is Galaxy nails...the idea is to make your nails look like the outer space.

This is my first Galaxy manicure. I decided I wanted a nebula inspired look because I wanted the base of my look to be a berry color instead of black. I'm very happy with the way this manicure came out.
I painted the nails a base color of OPI DS Extravagance....Then sponged on Revlon Powder Puff and Sally Hansen Thinking Of Blue. Using varies sized dotting tools I dotted on white paint and topped with China Glaze Fairy Dust

ARTSY WEDNESDAY Jewelry inspired

This week we are pulling inspiration from jewelry. Since I have a jewelry box FULL of baubles...it was hard to pick. I for sure thought Id go with My prized possession.... A gorgeous canary diamond engagement ring but figured the yellow would be hard to match & translate into a mani.(picture added below). So I went with Costume Jewelry. A wild rainbow stack ring that I wore throughout the summer.....
This ring is so loud I decided to go with a crazy rainbow on one finger and keep the rest clean cut with My absolute favorite matte white! I love the finished look!

Polish used:
Revlon Powder Puff matte
Forever 21 Salmon
OPI Do You Think I'm Texy
WnW Fergie Glowstick
Sinful Gorgeous
Sinful Purple Diamond

See more jewelry inspired for the rest of the team!
