Creative Nails Collab - Welcome to the Jungle

In the Jungle, the mighty Jungle... the lion sleeps tonight...
A whim away, a whim away...

Ahem, I got a bit distracted over there... anyway, the last theme for July was, as you can see from the title, "Welcome to the Jungle". Once again, I chose a simple design and even incorporated some glitter and stamped some leaves on top.

The gradient is a blue-green combo and the stamping was done with dark green, after I applied a thin coat of sheer glitter.
I tried to get the hang of this "stamping thing" multiple times, but I was never really fond of the idea so I didn't quite give it my best. I'll always prefer free-hand painting.

What do you think about my nails? Should I attempt stamping more often?

Creative Nails Collab - Magical

Hello again, nail art lovers!

Day dreaming about magic has been a huge part of my life for many years, ever since I read the Harry Potter series. For this theme I tried to get out of my comfort zone (whenever I think about magic, my brain defaults to Harry Potter related things) and do something minimal that's still magical. ^_^

Here's the result:

I think the linear holographic purple nail polish looks lovely next to the glittery textured blue polish, as they complement each-other really well. I painted some small symbols, stars and half-moons, just to complete the look.

Does this manicure look as magical to you as it does to me?

Creative Nails Collab - Yummy Watermelon

Hi nail art lovers,

What's your favorite summer fruit? In my case it's a tie between apricots and watermelon but this time I'm going to show you a manicure inspired by the latter.

I don't usually paint this type of gradients as I prefer vertical ones, however, this time I felt it was appropriate. And I kinda like the design, as well! :D

I used glitter for the seeds and they fell off really quick so I don't recommend it unless you have a really good top coat you can stick the bits of glitter onto. 

I wore this manicure for about a week and I feel that it turned out nice.
What do you think?
