Na Na Na nails

I'm a big My Chemical Romance fan and so is my brother. He was recently wearing his black and pink Na Na Na shirt and I decided to try and come up with a nail design inspired by it! Then I thought why not also do a similar design inspiered by the Na Na Na lyrics video on YouTube.

Here is the shirt that inspired the design I did on my left hand:

Here's what I came up with. I love it!

Here is the video and a picture that inspired the design of my right hand:

Green Water Mable

Since St. Patrick's Day is coming up and green is one of my favorite colors, I decided to try out a green water marble design. This was my third time trying to water marble and the first two times I did pretty good and really liked the result. I had a bit of trouble with some of the colors I used in this design. I didn't really get as pretty of an effect as my other marbling attempts but I still ended up liking what turned up.

I painted Re-Fresh Mint by China Glaze on my nails as the base color. Then I used different variations of It's Not Rocket Science by Orly, Twiggie by Color Club, Irish Green by Sinful Colors, Emerald Fitzgerald by China Glaze, and a color changing Green to Yellow polish by Mood Struck

Allstar Weekend

My little brother, Tommy, is a big fan of the band Allstar Weekend. He showed me a promo picture of a new song, so I decided to use it as inspiration for a nail design. Here's the picture he wanted me to use:

Allstar Weekend Not Your Birthday Nails

I decided to paint one nail (middle) like the candle surrounded by black in the picture. The other nails are blue like some of the letters in Allstar Weekend. I also wrote Allstar Weekend in white on the blue nails (except the star that I stamped on in black). I liked how it turned out and so did my little bro :)

blue: Towel Boy Toy by China Glaze
yellow: Almost Famous by Color Club
white: White on White by China Glaze
black: Goth by Orly
I used Bundle Monster plate BM20 with Konad special polish in black

He also wanted me to let you know that March 6th the Not Your Birthday music video
will be on Disney Channel!

Bright and Fun Crackle

I broke a few nails :( so I decided to just start over instead of leaving them uneven. Here's a fun color crackle combo using one of the new China Glaze Crackle Glaze. I love them all but the pink is my favorite so far. I really like how the bright blue looked with it too!
China Glaze Broken Hearted China Glaze Towel Boy toy
Base color: Towel Boy Toy
Crackle: Broken Hearted
both by China Glaze

A few days later I decided to try out the white crackle glaze over a purple polish. I also really like how they look together. The colorful crackle polishes are fun and I can't wait to try out different color combos.

Another Shatter Mani

I got bored the other night and decided to try another shatter mani. I recently bought Milani one coat glitter in Purple Gleam so I wanted to see what it'd look like under black shatter. I really loved it!! I also really like how the shatter polish ended up shattering.
