12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge | Day 1 | Snow Flakes

I recently joined a group on Facebook called Challenge Your Nail Art. I love this group. They have regular short challenges and they are come and go as you please. Meaning you don't have to commit to a full challenge. For the month of December they are doing the 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge which I am super excited about. If you have followed me for a while you may remember the Let It Snow challenge from last year, which you can find Here. For some reason I love the idea of a challenge which does just that. It challenges you to do things you wouldn't normally go for and also if you are in a mani funk, you always have an idea to go on. So enough chatting. Here is the first day of the 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge.

For day 1, the theme is Snow Flakes. I've done snow flakes before but I'm loving how these turned out.

Items Used:

Wet N Wild - Listening to Blue Reed
Nabi - White Flake
White Acrylic Paint
LA Colors Rapid Dry
Nail Art Brush

Check out what is to come!

Veterans Day 2014 | Camouflage Nail Art

Today is Veterans Day so what better nail art is there other than camouflage. My sister is really big into camouflage and I've been wanting to give it a try for a while now. I'm actually pleased with how well they turned out. I will probably be doing these in many other color combinations. Onto the nail art.

Items Used:

Sinful Colors - Beau Khaki
E.L.F - Nude
Wet N Wild - Black Creme
Hard Candy - Jubilee
Wet N Wild Matte Top Coat

I've had Hard Candy Jubilee for quite some time now and I wanted so bad to love it. I do, but I don't. I'm not really sure how I'm feeling about this one. It may just end up in my destash section. 

Well that's it for today's post. Hope you enjoyed.

October 2014 in Review | Monthly Favorites

October was actually a pretty good month for me for several reasons. I started getting all my teeth pulled in preparation for getting dentures which in the long run will help me to feel better since I will no longer have infections in my mouth anymore. I'm excited to keep going with the process of getting myself healthier. 

Also, October was a great month for my blog. I am still not reaching the audience that I would like as I'm not sure very many people actually read my blog but as far as bettering myself as a blogger and my nail art I think I've accomplished a lot this month and I couldn't be happier. So this post is just going to be a recap of some of my favorite things that have happened here on my blog.

October was Breast Cancer Awareness month and I love how these turned out. You can find more details on this mani Here.

I also did a 13 days of Halloween Series which you can find all of those Here, but here are a few of my favorites.

These were day one of the Halloween series and probably one of my favorites. You can find the details Here

I actually surprised myself with how well these patchwork nails turned out. Find out the details on these Here

For the last of my monthly favorites for this post are the reason I started doing nail art in the first place. I really love how these turned out and cant believe how far I've come in 2 years since beginning this journey. You can see my progress in this post Here.

So that is my October 2014 review and monthly favorites. I'm going to try and do a post like this from now on every month. For the month of November I plan on swatching my collection along with a few fall manis and of course some Thanksgiving nails. Hope you will all join me!
