Neon Aztec Stilletos

For today's design I was playing around with a couple of my favorite pink polishes, the colors are China Glaze's You Drive Me Coconuts and OPI's Mod About You. One is a super fun neon and the other is an adorable pastel, I just love the contrast of the two shades.

I started with a diagonal pink tip, next using my SoEasy nail art paints, I painted the black part of the design. For the final step, I painted in a few white highlights and this simple Aztec print was complete

Fourth Of July

Happy Fourth of July to all our neighbors to the south!!!! After spending our country's birthday in the US this design definitely makes me feel a little bit like a sell out. But you got to admit the American flag is pretty fun to work with, I figured if I was going with the red, white and blue I was going to rep it hard. For this design I stuck with the stars and stripes theme and added a majorly blinged out accent nail complete with blue glitter and Swarovski crystals.

I do feel a little guilty walking around with this design, but I'm also not going to lie I also really love these nails!!

Happy Canada Day

Happy Canada Day Everyone!!! I will be honest, I am writing this post from the US...This year I am spending Canada Day in Vegas, it feels kind of wrong but I could not resist a sunny vacation away on this long weekend. Traditionally this day is spent watching the parade and enjoying the local festival, followed by a few tasty beverages and a family BBQ, today my plans are to sit by the pool and fit in a little shopping before I catch my flight, sadly nothing to do with celebrating the birthday of our beautiful country!

  But since I am not in town to paint a patriotic design on my own nails, here is one I did on my client last weekend. For this design we had a lot of fun, she wanted to represent with an adorable moose and beaver and the remaining fingers full on Canada... so this is what I came up with.

 All these maple leafs bring me back to the 2010 Olympics, they kind of have a hockey feel to them and make me happy reminiscing of that exciting time!
