Twinsie Tuesday : splatter

Hey everyone!! Can you believe it's the last Tuesday of June? This week the Twinsies are bringing you some splatter nails! I previously have tried a splatter manicure 3 times all of which have been prompted, including in 2013 for TT. So it's not new territory for me, I just don't prefer splatter manicures.

I started with Wet n Wild Contact High. This time around, I tried a new attempt for my splatter. I mixed some acrylic paint with water and used the straw technique. This didn't work out too well for me because it was thin. So I ended up reaching for the two nearest polishes and splattered it over the acrylic splatter.

NCC - Electro

Hey everyone! June is almost over and I'm posting my 3rd NCC hero/villain mani of the month. Today's nails is inspired by Electro from The Amazing Spiderman 2.

I started with WnW Saved by the Blue and then topped it with two coats of Sally Hansen Laser. Once that was dry I added my electricity waves using a mixture of light blue and white acrylic paint. At the end I decided to attempt to dry Electro on my thumbnail.  Least I attempted,  right?

NCC - Incredibles

Hey everyone! I'm here with my second hero mani for Nail Challenge Collaborative.  I chose to do my nails inspired by the Incredibles.  I previously did an Incredibles manicure before so I wanted it to be a bit different this time around.

I started with Sinful Colors Cross my Heart; then I used black acrylic paint to make masks. Next I filled in white dots for eyes and then random eye colors for pupils. Surprisingly, I'm not quite sure if the pupil colors are accurate for each family member I figured it was close enough.

Twinsie Tuesday: shimmer (The FLASH)

Hello everyone!  This Tuesday I'm coming at you with a double theme for TT and NCC.  Twinsie Tuesday's theme is shimmer and Nail Challenge Collaborative is Heroes and Villains. 
I used Sinful Colors Hot Hot Heat (a shimmery red), Yellow Spotted (a yellow jelly packed with shimmer) and All About You (gold glitter but looks shimmery over red). The lighting bolts were done with yellow acrylic paint then topped with Yellow Spotted.  The thumbnail was topped with All About You and then I used acrylic paint to write "The Flash".
 Be sure to check out the other Twinsies to see their shimmer manicures.

HPB presents...Beach mani

Hey everyone! How's your summer going so far? So far mine has been pretty eventful including a trip to Florida which is now over. One would think that going to Florida means a trip to the beach, but the only beach I went to was Disney Polynesian beach. 

Which leads me to today's post, Hobby Polish Bloggers June link up is beach themed.  I decided to do a water to sand gradiant using Revlon Surf Spray and Elf Desert haze mixed with Elf Gold Star. My accent is China Glaze sand dolla make you holla.
