Oz: The Great and Powerful Inspired Nails: Evanora Nails

Oz is coming out March 8th in the U.S.. I have many ideas for Oz inspired nails, but I knew that I absolutely had to replicate Evanora’s nails!


Although nobody knew what my nails were inspired by, I still received a lot of compliments on them! I, myself, am also in love with them! They’re so simple an classy.


I used three coats of OPI – So Many Clowns… So Little Time as my base. I then used Art Club stripers in Black and Fine Gold to create the curved triangle shape.


My inspiration:


Is anyone else planning to see Oz? I’m thinking about going as one of the witches or a flying monkey! I can’t wait!

Oz: The Great and Powerful Inspired Nails: Flying Creature

Hello all! Is anyone else super excited for the new Oz movie? I sure am! Only one more week!

The little flying creature that resembles a sea monkey inspired my nails this week. I think he’s adorable, but everyone else I talked to begs to differ. Unfortunately, the lighting wasn’t agreeing with me today, so the quality of the pictures isn’t too great :(

For my blue base I used Sally Hansen – Blew Me Away! then used Savvy – Mango for the base of the creature. I created a few highlights using L'Oréal – Pink Me Up!. I mixed some Pink Me Up! with black in order to create some shadows, along with the mouth. I used black and white polish to make the eyes.

I used Rimmel London – French Rose for my french base for the rest of my nails. I made a black french tip using Wet n Wild – Black Crème.

Geometric Cube Nail Art

I’ve been falling behind on posting; these nails are from last week. I actually don’t feel like posting today, but am forcing myself, considering I know I won’t feel like next weekend either. I won’t be home much next weekend, but I have already planned out how I’m doing my nails.

For my base, I used New York Color – West Village, then sponged Maybelline – Purple Icon on my tips. To create my cubes I made squares using Revlon – Smoldering, then made the sides using Wet n Wild – Gray’s Anatomy. To finish it off, I used a white Stripe Rite striper to outline my cubes.

Rose Nails for Valentine’s Day

As far as Valentine’s Day goes, I find it very hard to be even semi-original with nails. I went for the classic rose this week.


I used a black striper to make the outlines of the roses, then filled them in with green and red/pink polish. At the moment, I do not feel like searching for the bottles of polish I used, so if you do want to know what I used, comment and let me know :)


Before I bid you farewell, I’d like you to know something…


It’s true. I really do love you guys. Without you, I would feel pretty lonely in the nail blogging world. Even though I have no problem talking to myself, I really appreciate all of you showing interest in my nails. Thank you <3

Sparkly Valentine’s Day Gradient Nails

Yesterday I just grabbed some polish, and aimlessly did my nails. I had no clue what I was actually doing, but I think it turned out pretty well. I tend to “wing it” a lot!




I first applied 2 coats of KleanColor – Sheer Peach as my base, then created a gradient using Finger Paints – Rose Patina and Sally Girl – Sparkle. Next, I used one coat of China Glaze – Fairy Dust on top of my entire nail, along with a very thin layer of Wet n Wild – Kaleidoscope just extending a bit past the gradient. Then, picked out large holographic glitters from Revlon – Stunning and placed them on the pink gradient . Finally, I applied some holographic silver heart spangles to my ring fingers and thumbs.


Valentine’s Day is nearing! Are you planning anything?
