So some of you may follow me on Facebook and Instagram, and you may have seen my latest obsession. I’ve recently discovered Nail Art. As it is, I’ve always loved painting my nails. It’s a fun way to express yourself and doesn’t take much commitment, and you can change it as much as you want. I’ve been trying out all these new techniques I’ve been seeing, and I’m going to share them with you all. I’ll link to YouTube videos and tutorials, if possible. Be aware…this is a PIC HEAVY POST.
This is called the IKAT print, and I used this tutorial.

This one I didn’t use a tutorial but I did have an inspiration photo I saw on Pinterest. Sadly it’s a dead link, so I can’t link it to the original.

The Braided or Weaved nails. I really enjoyed this look and it was super easy to do. I followed this easy tutorial

Interlocking dots, was also a fun and easy look! In fact, I enjoyed the dots so much, that two days later I went back and did all my fingers. This is an easy to follow video showing you how.

I didn’t use a tutorial for this one. Here I used my stamping plates. Google Konad Stamping plates and you will see. It’s glorious. So easy and so fun!

Again, with the stamping. The range of possibilities is almost limitless with these manicures. This was my Wintertime mani!

Here I was craving something girly and ended up a little Barbie-tastic. I tried to tone it down with a reverse glitter gradient, and ended up regretting that move.

More braided nails for Christmas. This time just as accents.

I wanted to match my New Years Eve dress, so I set out to do that. I used a stamp with a reverse glitter gradient over the top. Loved it.

Surprisingly though, this one was my favorite. I never thought Leopard print would be something I would wear, but man was it fun to have on my fingers! Here is a great pic tutorial on how to make the leopard spots. So easy to do but so fun to wear.

I’ve always been a little eclectic on the blog, but I think this would be fun to explore more in depth. If this is something you’d like to see more of, please let me know.
