OMD2 Nail Art Challenge: Roses

2014 favorite button | Be Happy And Buy PolishGood morning to you, good morning to you! My mom used to wake me up like that in a sing-song voice that I hated (not a morning person here). 🙂 It’s Friday and I’m so excited to show you my nail art for today! The prompt is “roses” and it came out exactly like I envisioned it. I’ve been wanting to incorporate skulls into a nail art piece and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity!

OMD2 Nail Art Roses And Skulls | China Glaze Liquid Leather, Custom Kicks, Heli-yum | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I started off with 2 coats of China Glaze Custom Kicks, which is a great teal but is a hard one to take a picture of! I then used China Glaze Liquid Leather as a base for my roses and skulls, and then used CG Heli-yum to create shading. I love this so much, I did both hands!

OMD2 Nail Art Challenge: Fruit

Good afternoon everyone! Is your Thursday afternoon going well? I’m currently waiting for my contacts to finish cleaning (I stuck them in solution that you have to let sit for 6 hours), so I’m wearing my broke down glasses that I hate. LOL! I’m going to show you my fruit nail art and tell you what I’ve used – and THEN I’ll tell you what the nail art is supposed to be. I want to see if you’ll “get it”. 🙂

OMD2 Nail Art DragonFruit | Milani Splendid Strawberry, Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Black on Black, Mint Tropics | Be Happy And Buy Polish

For my pointer and pinky fingers, I’ve used Milani Splendid Strawberry with Sinful Colors Mint Tropics. For my middle and ring fingers, I’ve used Sinful Colors  Snow Me White and Black on Black.

So have you guessed what fruit I’ve tried to do? Or do you give up? It’s a favorite fruit of mine: dragonfruit! Though, it doesn’t really look too much like it. LOL. You can check out a fruit basket of nail art by clicking through to the link-up. Until tomorrow,

OMD2 Nail Art Challenge: Negative Space

Good morning loves! It’s mid-week, are you doing okay so far? It’s going to be another hot day here, so once again I’m trying to get stuff done before the heat hits. Today’s nail art prompt is a negative space mani, and I have to admit that I struggled with this one. Let’s take a look:

OMD2 Nail Art Negative Space | Wet n Wild A Blank Canvas, Here Comes Trouble, A Venice Day | Be Happy And Buy Polish http://wp.me/p3n4zP-1oM

I’ve used Wet n Wild Here Comes Trouble (blue), A Blank Canvas (white), and A Venice Day (yellow). I have no idea where I was going with my design, that’s probably part of the problem! LOL 😛 What are your thoughts about this manicure, is it a win or fail?

Hi all! Are you having a great day? I hope so! Today’s prompt for the OMD2 Nail Art Challenge is ‘feathers,’ and I’m not quite sure I like what I’ve done. Let’s check it out!

OMD2 Nail Art Feathers | Jessica Cosmetics Sharktooth, Dynamite Teal, Monsoon Melon, Banana Peel, Sunset Blvd | Be Happy And Buy Polish http://wp.me/p3n4zP-1nO

I’ve started out with 2 coats of Jessica Cosmetics Dynamite Teal. I freakin’ love this color! I then sponged a gradient with Dynamite Teal, Banana Peel, and Monsoon Melon. Lastly, using Jessica Sharktooth and Sunset Blvd., I created the feathers. I was trying to recreate this picture I found, but it looks nothing like that. LOL!

Good morning everyone! I hope your weekend was amazing, ours was H-O-T! We’re heading into the home stretch of the OMD2 Nail Art Challenge, and today’s prompt is “animal print.” I took my cue from Citizens of Beauty, who had a great casual summery look the other day.

OMD2 Nail Art Animal Print | OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons, Black Onyx, Innie Minnie Mightie Bow | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I really just kind of went “whatever” with my spots and tried not to think too hard about them. 🙂  I’ve used OPI Don’t Pretzel My Buttons for the base of all nails except the accent nail. I used OPI Black Onyx for the leopard spots; the accent nail is OPI Innie Minnie Mightie Bow; lastly topped off with OPI top coat.

I hope you enjoyed my simple animal print for today, I hadn’t done one in a long while! Check out these other great manis by clicking here. Tomorrow’s manicure will be ‘feathers,’ so until then,

OMD2 Nail Art Challenge: Chevrons

Good Sunday morning all! I hope you are having a great weekend so far. I’m really excited about today’s nails so I’m just going to get right to it! Chevrons are fast becoming another favorite kind of manicure to do, for me.

OMD2 Chevrons | Color Club Silver Lake, East Austin, Beyond | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I’ve started with Color Club Silver Lake on all fingers. I then used chevron nail vinyls and painted Color Club East Austin [affiliate link] over the top, quickly pulling off the nail vinyls. Lastly, I created a bow with Color Club Beyond and Silver Lake on my ring (and thumb, though you can’t see it).

I absolutely love how bright this is, and I created it on my other hand as well and wore it for 2 days. 🙂 What do you think of this mani? If you’d like to see more chevron manis, click through to the link-up. Until the next time,

OMD2 Nail Art Challenge: Ombre

Good morning my lovely lot of readers! It’s going to be a hot day here, so I’m trying to get everything done this morning when it’s at least a little cooler. 🙂 Today’s nail prompt is ombre, and to be honest, I had to look up the difference between ombre and gradient.  (I found this website, which was really helpful, btw.)

OMD2 Ombre Gradient | Mentality Gelato, Lollipop, Royalty, Divergent | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I’ve decided to do an ombre gradient! I’ve used Mentality Gelato, Lollipop, Royalty, and Divergent. It’s not perfect, but I like it! If you want to check out more ombres, check out this link here. I hope you have a great day, and until the next time,
