A New Challenge for December

I'm going to be joining Crumpet Nail Tarts Christmas Challenge. It is a winter holiday challenge that happens twice a week until the end of the year. This is the run down:


So excited and can't wait to start. I've already been doing wintery/Christmas nails if you have seen my instagram account.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving holiday. We don't have turkey in my house. I made chicken instead, green bean casserole and rolls. I made a pie but it got burnt. This day is off to a great start. Now I'm working all night. :( Yes there are some people that work on holidays. So I'll be missing all the Black Friday madness (I don't deal with all that anyway, even if I wasn't working). Be safe and kind!

Here's my Thanksgiving mani.

Robin Moses Inspired Nail Art

Hi y'all. I just wanted to check in and do a quick blog post. I've been watching Robin Moses nail art videos on youtube lately. Well I've been watching forever but never actually tried doing any. So I took a shot and tried a few.

The first one I did is cherry blossoms on a white background using this tutorial:


This is my Robin Moses inspired result:
Blah. I wasn't really happy with it. So consider this a fail.

Then I tried the same tutorial but used different colors for a "fall mani". This is how it turned out.
This one looks much nicer and not so blobby as the other one. I love it. Yay!

Then I tried this tutorial, vintage cherries:


This is what mine looked like:
I loved how the cherries turned out and can you believe I did this with my non-dominant right hand (I'm left handed)! They are a lot bigger than the ones in the tutorial but I haven't really mastered any brush strokes yet. I'm very heavy handed when it comes to nail art.

Well I hope you liked my Robin Moses inspired art and go ahead and try some for yourself. She has TONS of tutorials on youtube!
