Evolutions is a deep teal jelly loaded with iridescent shifting squares and gold micro glitters.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I really like this shade a lot!  It has a lot of depth and catches the light really well.

Spring into Leopard

Hi everyone!  I am so ready for spring, so I went with some of my fave spring shades for today's look!


I started off with two coats of China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint.


I paired my large dotting tool with FingerPaints Pink Patina and added some random splotches.  Next, I used my smaller dotting tool with OPI Do You Lilac It? and added some splotches around Pink Patina to form the leopard rosettes.  I finished with one coat of Seche Vite top coat.


I just love the final look!  These pastels made for an eye catching look for spring!


This trio of shades can be found at Sally Beauty Supply, on their wall of 750 shades, and don't forget that FingerPaints is exclusive to Sally Beauty!!
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

Nail Technology: Week 5

Hi everyone!  Week 5 was a little on the short side for me, thanks to our wonky weather down here.  I continued working on my pink & white sculpts this week.  I have to admit, that I wasn't crazy about doing them when I first started, but now I'm really starting to like them!  We also worked on making our own sugar scrubs!  I really liked that a lot!


Here's my first set of sculpts for the week.


Here's my second set of sculpts.


I started practicing my freehand french tips too.  I'm not sure why I've avoided doing these on myself!


Another set of sculpts ...


And some more freehand french tips.


I went a little bolder with the pink in my sculpts here ...


Then I added some neon leopard tips.


Aaaaaand more sculpts ...


And some fun french tips.

Next week bring a new chapter in my textbook, and some new lessons too!  I'll update you on Sunday!
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

Black Out

Hi everyone!  I've seen some awesome black jelly manis lately, so I decided to try one!


I made my own black jelly by adding about 10 drops of KBShimmer Eclipse to KBShimmer Clearly on top.  I applied two coats of the black jelly, followed by one coat of SV.


Using a wedge sponge, I added a gradient to the tips with Eclipse and then paired it with my dotting tool for the polka dot pattern.  I finished with OPI Matte Top Coat.


I love the end result!  I can't wait to try some other black jelly designs!
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!
