White Lotus vs. Red Lotus nails

When Avatar: The Last Air Bender came out, I thought it was the epitome of what animation should be. Then along came The Legend of Korra to rocket the standard to new heights. This nail set it my ode to the antagonists of Book 3, the Red Lotus, as well as their peaceful predecessors, the White Lotus.

Free crochet dragon egg pattern

While these eggs cannot produce dragons, no matter how much you heat them (and I do advise STRONGLY against this, flammable materials and all), you can still feel like a khaleesi snuggling up to these crocheted dragon eggs, inspired by Game of Thrones. It’s an intermediate level pattern. And best of all, it’s completely free!

Zerg nails

The emblem on the thumb was done using the decal technique which I WILL be posting tomorrow! Swear it. The photographs and write up are done. I’m just spacing it out so it seems like I’m more active on this blog. ^^; The rest of the manicure was done using the water spotted technique, which…

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…

Night Vale vs. Desert Bluffs

Tumblr, I want you to know that you ruin me sometimes. Three months ago I was just a normal semi-normal mostly-normal-for-show kinda gal, going about my business. Then all this stuff started showing up in my dash. “What is Night Vale?” I asked, then downloaded, and then it was all over. It’s an overused phrase, but I…

Cupcake manicure

My no calorie solution to a lack of baked goods in my life. Artistically satisfying, but my stomach disagrees. There are tiny dings all over this manicure. I have a real problem with sitting still long enough to let it dry. Interesting tidbit: I used the Revlon scented nail polish for the pink frosting. So now…
