Harry Potter Nails!

OMG these pictures were taken with an iphone and whenever I do that, they get weird and stretched out when I blog them. Anyways, here is Chrissy's hands which I have adorned with awesome Gryffindor colors on most and then a few acccent Harry Potter nails. There's 2 of the Deathly Hallows, the HP logo, a snitch, a Gryffindor school outfit, and Harry's lightning bolt scar. P.S. I cried during the entire movie (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II), from the previews til we walked out of the theater. Amazing.

White to Mint Fade + Grey Zeebz

I just recently got a package of makeup sponges (which I LOVE to use, but NEVER remember to buy, as I use makeup brushes), so I'm back on a sponging kick. This interesting color combo is a result of my recent house-cleaning day in which I moved ALL of my nail polish/implements under the bathroom sink, and these colors happened to miss the move as they were hiding on my coffee table. But I was pleasantly surprised on how it turned out! From far away, they seemed like a subtle pale green, but up close you can really see the details. I painted on two coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, then gently sponged on the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Mint Sorbet. I then busted out Chrissy and my franken "Ash Wangsday" (ashy grey) and painted on some zebras. The end result was awesomely subtle. But unfortunately didn't last long on my hands; I ended up messing every finger up making dinner soon after I took these pictures.

This is a remix on the mint-white design, I wanted to try darker colors and black zebra stripes for a bolder effect. I don't know which I like better. But I love having different colors on all my nails.

Also, I haven't been able to comment on anyone or my own blogs. I try to comment on y'all's blog posts and it takes me in a loop where it keeps asking me to sign in, write my comment, sign it, write my comment again, etc. This is why I haven't been giving yous guys props for your beautiful nail designs in the last two months! :( If anyone knows how to help, it would be greatly appreciated!

Bonnaro Mushroom Nails

Yeah, I know Bonnaroo was a while ago, but I have been soo busy crafting and sewing that I haven't posted any nail designs in a while! So I'm going to spam all of your dashboard feeds with the last 2 months of nail art that I haven't posted! Sorry in advance!

These are my girlfriend Harmony's Bonnaroo mushroom nails, inspired by a weird mushroom picture off Google images. It's just black with swirls of green and blue dots, with tie-dyed mushrooms painted on top.

She also had me do a massive henna design across her back and chest which is drying and cracking off in the picture. She's very boho-chic.
