Graphic Art

When Cheryl asked me to be a guest on the blog, I must admit I was extremely flattered! Thanks Cheryl!!!

I have always loved graphic art designs and decided to try my hand at it in a Pedi.  Surprisingly, I liked it so much I did a matching mani!

This look was inspired by Love4Nails….it reminds me of Mardi Gras! Don’t ask me why, it just does.

The colors I chose are all by China Glaze…the base color is Style Wars, an outrageous Orange that is nothing less than gorgeous when worn alone. The accent colors are Turned Up Turquoise, a familiar color here on Polish2Times, and Frostbite, an absolutely breath taking blue with just the right amount of shimmer. I then used Yellow, Black and White Stripe Rites to create random stripes and dots.

Had I known I was going to be asked to share on the blog, I would have taken pictures of the process and tried not to be so messy.  Next time I’ll be prepared…LOL!

Hope you have as much fun as I did creating some graphic designs.  Enjoy!!!

Here Today, Gone……

China Glaze – “Hey Sailor” & “II”

Nails had to be chopped.  In all their flourishing beauty, sadly they were actually in the way.   Because they were so strong, I had to soak my nails in water to soften them a bit so I could actually cut them.  I wanted the process to go as smoothly as possible.

Here today, gone…well, tonight…

I’ve been thinking to test out this “II” color for at least six months. It never seemed the right time.  It’s gorgeous.  It’s a beautiful nude color with the prettiest gold hologram shimmer.  But it’s so sheer, you’d never be able to avoid a visible nail line. 

Enter the beauty of having nubby nails.
