Acid Rain

Hi everyone!  It's finally time to start the fall manis!


I started with two coats of A England Excalibur Renaissance, followed by one coat of SV.


Using a damp wedge sponge, I added a gradient effect with A England Excalibur Renaissance, Rose Bower, and Briarwood.


I wanted to add a black creme dry-brush look, so I selected OPI Who Are You Calling Bossy?!?.  (I chose this one because of its flat brush.)  To ensure I had thinner lines, I only used the edge of the bristles.  I also made sure to put extra focus on catching the tip of my nails with the brush for some added depth.  I finished with one coat of SV.


I really like the final look.  I don't know why it makes me think of acid rain, but it does!!
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

Sponged Splatter

Hi everyone!  It's been ages since I did a splatter mani, and I really wanted to get some neons in before summer officially comes to a close.

Nail Art

I started off with two coats of Color Club Look, Don't Tusk, followed by one coat of Northern Lights Holographic Top Coat for a little extra sparkle.

Nail Art

Using a porous bath sponge, I dabbed on a bit of polish with the polish brush, and then gently dabbed it randomly on my nails using Color Club Foxy Mama, Kapow!, Not-So-Mellow Yellow, Peace, Love & Polish, and Right On.  I finished with one coat of SV.

Nail Art

I really like the end result, and it was so much faster than using the straw method!

Nail Art

I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!
