Hi Everyone,

Geeze, it's been a while.

Hopefully you've all be keeping up with me on my Youtube channel which is my prime media choice for sharing my nail art designs.  Recently my Facebook Fan Page has become my second media stream for my nail art designs, and my blog has fallen into a sad third place with neglect (as you may possibly know if you follow either of my other two mediums.)

I was about to post my first of six Valentine's day Nail art tutorials on my blog (in a last ditch effort to keep my blog somewhat up to date).  But even just thinking of doing that kinda felt like a chore.

I do thank you all for following my blog and I really appreciate the support - but I really do need to ask:

Do you follow my blog on a regular basis?

I'd really appreciate a simple comment below - even if it's just one word, yes, to let me know how much of a following I actually have for my blog.   If there isn't a great demand for my blog to continue to be updated, I will close it and keep my youtube and facebook (and twitter -via automatic updates)  as my sources of sharing.

If you're really adamant about reading my blog -
please take a moment to comment below to let me know.
I really appreciate it.

Nail Polish Bottles - Up close (2012)

Here are the up close and personal photos of my nail polish collection, as promised.

Obviously, this will be a photo HEAVY post.

And don't forget, if you want to see more detail, you can click on each photo to see it full size.


Nail Polish Collection - Update 2012

I've had many requests for an updated nail art collection video.
So, here you go.

I don't know that my collection has actually gotten that much bigger from my old collection video.  I'm much more picky about which polishes I buy now.  Previously when I was trying to increase and diversify my collection, I was buying lots of  polishes.  But now I feel like I've gotten it to a good size and quality.  I've got a diverse enough of a collection that I don't feel restricted when doing nail art tutorials.  Now that I've got the diversity, when I buy new polishes, I usually only buy polishes that are either a really wicked bargain, or is a colour that I really want to personally wear.

In this post, I'm only showing my nail polish bottles, excluding base coats, top coats, and other nail prep/treatments.  I will have a separate video for my accessories, which I will hopefully remember to include all konad stamping, glitter, fimo, tools, base coats, top coats, polish removers and basically anything else nail art related.  Hopefully that video will get done in the next week or so.  If it doesn't, it's because it's gotten bumped down the priority list in order to get some Halloween tutorials done this year.

Hope you enjoy this video.  :)

A separate post with close ups of the nail polish bottles will follow.

Nail Design - Inspired by Katy Perry's Dress from the MTV Video Music Awards

Hello Gorgeous!
That's what I think of all of you beautiful viewers AND this hot-Damn dress that Katy Perry wore at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

Hope you enjoy this tutorial.
Although I didn't show a design on my thumb for this tutorial, I ended up doing one up because I loved this design too much to take it off right away. So instead I whipped up a quick design for my thumb to make the manicure complete.

This design is not too difficult.  It certainly does take time, but only requires a moderate level of skill.  Because the design is a bit abstract, it is easy to hide any mistakes with the glitter or shimmer polish.
Hope you give this design a try!

The video tutorial is after the break.

Pink and Blue Stripes - Back to School Nail Art Tutorial

I had a request to do a back to school nail art tutorial.
I didn't have anything planned, but I thought this design was really cute, AND it reminded me of loose leaf lined paper - just like the kind you buy for back to school.

Graphic black & Yellow Print - Free Hand Nail Art Tutorial

This one reminds me of Lichtenstein.  Well that, or the well known cartoon 'POW design by Wah Nails. (as seen on the ring finger here: )

If you've never heard of Wah Nails, you need to check them out.  They're a well known nail art salon in London, UK.
although it resembles one of their designs, this design was actually intended to be a simple crooked french manicure.  And yet it turned into so much more  :)
