Graduation Nails 2K15

In honor of my high school graduation this upcoming wednesday, I painted my nails accordingly. On my six accent nails and in six different languages i wrote "Good Luck" on them. I started with a pink base color and then layered on this bright royal blue using the water spotting method. This method involves dropping nail polish into a cup full of water and then spraying hair spray over it to create circles/spots in the nail polish, then you dip your fingers into the water and voila! I added four little rhinestones and finished with a top coat.

Newsprint with Orange Flowers

Newsprint is always a fun manicure print to have, but i couldn't just have newsprint could i. So i added some yellow and orange flowers to my nails accompanied by some rhinestones to make a bigger impact.

Prom 2k15

I had my senior prom this weekend so of course i had to paint my nails to match the occasion. I painted them purple to go along with my hair, as i had redyed it purple and blue the night previous. I had drawn on designs with pastel blue and pink but the purple was so pigmented that when i put the topcoat on the purple bleed over the acrylic paint. So i just ended up covering my nails with a whole bunch of rhinestones.

Starting with a pinky toned light wash base color i then drew on a white french tip and then one by one color created this rainbow gradient. A super simple take on the classic french tip.

Design Galore with Mint and Purple

I couldn't pick just one theme this week so i did 10! I started out with a neon mint base color and then on each nail i painted on with purple acrylic paint a different design. I topped it all off with some glitter to make the manicure somewhat cohesive.
