Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter R for... rain!

"Rain, rain,
go away.
Come again another day."

No, not really... I like rain. Actually, I love rain!
I feel happy when it rains and I really enjoy going out in the rain, as long as I don't have to use an umbrella. Now don't get me wrong, I like colorful umbrellas, and I know how useful they are, but... I hate using them. :/

Anyway, as you've probably noticed, today's post is about a manicure inspired by rain. After my darling (:*) suggested the theme I started thinking of how I could create something special on my nails, to emphasize how awesome rain really is. This is the result:

Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter Q for... Quarter

Hey everyone!

This week's post is about a manicure I really like ( I mean really, really like and I'm incredibly proud of it) and I'v been pretty anxious to show you, even though my post is late. ^_^

My inspiration for this week was the word "quarter" and I thought a bit outside the box when doing my nails. I hope you'll like what turned out!

Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter P for.. Poison

Soooo... letter P... poison!
Yeah... not much to say about this theme since it was a last moment idea (again). ^_^

I used a holographic nail polish as a base, then a matte top coat to obtain the smoky effect. I drew the vials using acrylic paint and the "poison" is painted using textured nail polishes. I love the color explosion! ^_^

The nails on my right hand are really short compared to my left hand but they're growing slowly so I decided to show them to you anyway. :D

And now... this week's disaster! :(
My thumb's nail broke in two, as you can see, and nothing from superglue to tea bags & clear nail polish could fix it... In the next posts you will see how it looks after I reconstructed it using gel.  (Temporary thing, until my natural nail grows back)

That's about it for today, I made the post on time (hooray!) so you can go and see what idea the other bloggers had! :D

Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter O... for Orphism

Short & Late post

My inspiration:
"The Orphists were rooted in Cubism but moved toward a pure lyrical abstraction, seeing painting as the bringing together of a sensation of pure colors. More concerned with the expression and significance of sensation, this movement began with recognizable subjects but was rapidly absorbed by increasingly abstract structures. Orphism aimed to dispense with recognizable subject matter and to rely on form and color to communicate meaning. The movement also aimed to express the ideals of Simultanism: the existence of an infinitude of interrelated states of being". (Source - Wikipedia)

Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter N for... Nemo! :D

Image source: Google

This is going to be a short post because I'm a bit late (had to post it on Saturday but I got distracted). The idea of painting something inspired by Nemo on my nails only came to me yesterday while talking to a special person (you know who you are :*) and after my previous manicure turned out to be a huge fail.
