Monsters University - Mike Wazowski Tutorial

Today's Flash Back Mani and Nail Art Tutorial comes from the 2013 Disney/Pixar movie Monsters University.

I still haven't to this day watch the full movie with this cute little green spherical one eyed monster Mike Wazowski; but the short previews I've gotten I loved him at first sight lol and Billy Crystal's voice definitely assisted in bringing it's character to life.

This step by step tutorial I must say I enjoyed doing as this tiny green 3d character came to nail life.

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus

Today's Mani Monday nail talk is another galaxy theme nail idea with inspiration from John Gray's - Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.

Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus is a book written by an American author and relationship counselor John Gray the book states that most of common relationship problems between men and women are a result of fundamental psychological differences between the genders, hence its eponymous metaphor: that men and women are from distinct planets – men from Mars and women from Venus –- and that each gender is acclimated to its own planet's society and customs, but not to those of the other.

If you remember my last post of galaxy theme nails you would realize it's the same encapsulated nails which I refilled and did a complete transformation by including some hand painted portraits. 

I know sometimes as clients when having encapsulated designs you feel trapped with having to wear the same design for weeks after refilling or having to change the design by soaking off your nails and going through the process again.

By redesigning this same set of nails you will see that you do have options to not only wear your favorite Mani as long as you'd wish but also give it an entirely new funk.

Here are a few pics of  my inspired nail art design to "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" do enjoy:

Bob Marley Tribute - Inspired Bob Marley Nails

Stir it up; little darlin', stir it up. Come on, baby.
Come on and stir it up: little darlin', stir it up. O-oh!

It's been a long, long time, yeah! 
Most of us have grown up to the sounds of sweet reggae music but mostly that of Bob Marley. I myself as a toddler remember my neighbor would be cleaning his yard while sounds like Buffalo Soldier, I Shot The Sheriff and Could You Be Loved to name a few would be echoing through the village. Sounds that even I as a child would rock and easily sang along too as time went by.

The love for his legacy and the positive vibe that one feels from each beat I had to pay tribute and seeing that it's his birthday (Feb,6th) I think it seemed like the perfect timing. 
These nails I must say I definitely had fun doing while singing along to Jamming "We're jamming, jamming and I hope you like jamming too."

Happy Birthday Bob Marley! Hope you all enjoy these as much as I do.

Above is the picture of Bob Marley I used as my inspiration 

A sketch I did back in 2007. I love bob marley 

Hope you all enjoyed my Bob Marley inspired nail art.

I leave with you to enjoy one of my favorite Bob Marley songs. One Love.

Galaxy Nails

I've always wanted to do Galaxy nails since I first saw them back in memory lane, but  never had a client ask for it and I've never thought about requesting it either.

One of my nail male inspiration Nuni Torres decided to host a competition via Instagram with the theme Galaxy/Space and there it was my chance to design this out of space nail design. The competition got canceled but I definitely had fun creating this design with not one hint of  nail polish and wish I had done it sooner.

I fell so deeply in love with the design I recreated it using the same mixture I used on the first design and did another cute design for my sister.

Do enjoy

All acrylic and glitter encapsulated acrylic nail art (Not Polish)

I added some nail art jewelry and rhinestones I got from born pretty store
