#BobRossOnTwitch mani

To celebrate the new addition of the Twitch Creative channel, the team began The Joy of Painting marathon on Oct. 29, Bob Ross’ birthday. Just like the steady 40k+ viewers, I tuned in every day for 8.5 days to watch Bob paint, listen to his wisdom, and fawn over his critter friends. This nail set is my tribute to him and to the famed Twitch chat.

Spider-Gwen nail art

Valentine’s Day manicure

A little late because I didn’t have the time to edit my photos prior to the day, but here they are. I’ve gotta say, it’s probably one of my favorite manicures. And longest lasting! It’s still completely chip free after a week. I recently purchased those Sally Hansen nail polish strips to try out. While…

TARDIS watercolor galaxy pseudo-French tip manicure

Phew, that title’s a doozy. Anyway, on to the boring, technical stuff. I used this watercolor manicure tutorial from Bellezza Bee, but modified it slightly to get the look I wanted. I’ll probably do my own walkthrough at a later date, after I’m finished with the decal tutorial, which has been photographed and just needs…
