Animal Nail Art

For the first week of tenth grade, I had zero idea of what i wanted to do, so i ended up painting ten different animals. I hand-painted all of them with acyclic paint and a TINY paintbrush and then did the outline nail design in mint paint. :)

Polka Dot Gradient Nails

For this week's nail art i decided to do gradient nails, but then i added dots to all of my nails except my middle finger...really no reason for that.
An overview of my nails, except for my thumbs.
Here is my left hand.
another shot of my left hand...
and another....

and here is a close-up of my ring finger, the yellow polish that i used is super super super bright and sadly the photo does no justice to it, but it's beautiful. :)

Orca/Killer Wale Nail Art (Pedicure)

Even though you really have to look at these nails to know what they orca wale...these are sooo cute. I did this design on my mom's friend.
This is a close-up of her left foot and is where i hand painted the orca wale with acrylic paints.
A sorta close-up of the orca.
And an overview of all of her nails, on all of her toes i painted a simple french tip to add some spunk to them. I think these turned out really cute. :)
Hope you enjoy.

Olympic 2012 Nail Art

My mom decided that she also wanted her nails done (along with her toes, two previous posts are her toes done), so she wanted some olympic themed nails.
Here is the overall look of the nails.
on her left hand, i painted the gold, silver, and bronze medals for the main nail art
on her right hand, i just dotted USA on her three main nails
here are her two thumbs, one with silver sparkle, and the other with blue crakle over a white base

and here are the polishes that i used:

Sparkly Blue Nail Art

Even though this isn't really a summer manicure style, i still love my sparkle.

and finally a close-up of the blue that i used as a base color, this is such a pretty shade of blue. <333

Polka Dot Pedicure Nail Art

Polka Dots are perfect for summer and after my mom saw my green pedicure, she wanted hers the same. So i painted her nails orange with black, white, and orange dots. I painted my nails neon green with black, white, and green dots.
Above: my mom's orange pedicure
Above and Below: my neon green pedicure
And then we had some fun, so (below) here is both of our nails done together, a little creepy, but somehow cute. 
But this is super creepy, my left foot and my mom's right foot right next to eachother. weird looking.
Hope you enjoyed :)
