Super Mario Bros Nail Art Design

Hey dolls and gents,

Today's nail talk are especially for all my Nintendo Super Mario bros, everyone must had played this in their lifetime of being a game freak. Mamma mia! :D
I know I have and boy do I miss those days being stuck to the television body moving side to side, fingers busy with the control, screaming, yelling, jumping all the joys and excitement that comes with any of the Mario bros game collection.. I've played them all :D

I've been wanting to do this nail art theme for some time now and finally got the perfect moment to do so. ;)
I did a mixture of both 3d and hand painted art for this desired look.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did designing them while I hummed the theme song.. :D

Mario and Luigi definitely had to be the star of the design that's why they're done in 3d acrylic , after all they are the real hero's right. lol 
I couldn't leave out toad with his adorable mushroom head and whats a hero without his main ride or horse in this case Yoshi.

Who's ready for a quick match I've got one control join me and lets get this, lol had to include the controls for all gamers like myself. ;)

Hope you all enjoyed my inspired nail art design to a fabulous game.

Houndstooth Nail Art Tutorial

Hey dolls and gents,

Many dolls on my instagram have asked if my hounds tooth designs are stickers. :O
I'm anti sticker lol I'm not, I actually prefer taking the challenge of figuring out ways I can polish designs myself.

I decided to do a quick step by step tutorial for all those interested in duplicating the print but wanting to try it themselves. ;)

Black and white houndstooth print 

I've put together a few pictures of nail art designs I did with the hounds-tooth print. Do Enjoy ;)

Life and Death

Hey dolls and gents,

I'm always excited when my clients come with crazy themes for me to design on their nails and for my first design of 2014 I was given a challenge by one of my clients to design her nails to the quote " Life and death are two sides of the same coin called destiny" Muhammed Haider

I'm sure you think that should be easy when ying and yang, good and evil and penny/coins comes to mind with such a quote. Her idea however, was that this theme would be represented using flowers.. Yes flowers :D 

So I set to Google lol for pictures of various flowers both blossoming and withered so I have an idea where to start on her design. 

I must say we were both excited during the making and pleased with the final results.

Here are some pics of the  " Life and death are two sides of the same coin called destiny" Muhammed Haider inspired Nail Art do hope you all enjoy.

Nail Polish as well as 3d Acrylic method was used for this design

This the season to be jolly.

Follow me in Merry Christmas; fa la la la la la la la la :)

Hey dolls and gents, 

I'm a tad bit late with my Christmas treats and I'm just as excited to share them with you as when I first decided on planning my Christmas theme. :)

These nail art designs will definitely keep you in the spirit of Christmas and remind you of some of your favorite cartoons during the holidays.

Don't you feel like singing "Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree" after seeing that cute nail piece, I surely was while I was designing it. :)

By now I guess you'll figured how much I love these two; so when I decided to design them using only acrylic (3d nail art) I was surprised that they came out pretty well for my first time.

I was so excited and with "Santa Clause is coming to town ringing through my headsets I had to add Santa and his leading reindeer to my nail set. I really love how Santa's glasses came out. ;)

How did snoopy get in the mix you say? I was strolling to the mall with my mom and step-dad and in the window showcase of Hallmarks Store there was this beautiful display of all my favorite cartoons and snoopy stood out the most with his cute tummy. hehehe

Need an idea on how to display your Christmas theme nail art designs? 

This is what I did:

This picture doesn't do it justice; but this was super cute will blinking lights my clients couldn't believe was nail art I used to decorate the tree lol they loved the idea.

I also had a Christmas Nail Art Wheel which unfortunately I did not complete but will share the few designs I did.

Cute little gingerbread man

 Hello Kitty, Tweety the bird and Betty Boop all in the Christmas spirit

What's a Christmas wheel without Santa

I guess this Mario brother decided to play Santa this year. lol

Having free time to design nails is a tad different when you have a pair of hands to design. I love my clients cause they always have faith in my creativity even if I'm doing a design for the first time. hehehe

These ladies definitely took advantage of the season and had me go all out in designing their nails.

The crystal rhinestones I used in this design I got it from born pretty store at a cost of US$4.05 for 144pcs

The gold beads I used in this design as well as on the Christmas tree (above) I got from born pretty store at a cost of US$4.17 (it comes in small pks with an empty wheel container to store both gold and silver)

 The Rhinestone Bows on this design I got from born pretty store at a cost of $2.99 for 5pcs

I've placed the links for the nail decorations I used in each design for easy access to the born pretty store website. Don't forget you can use my Coupon code XNSQ10 and get 10% off your entire purchase. Link is in the top right corner of my blog page.

Hope you enjoy the Christmas season as much as I do and don't forget to Let Your Nails Do The Talking. ;)
