I love purple and glitter!  I will admit it and own up to it.  Some halo tips and a jelly glitter accent nail.
Nothing fancy but still fun in the sunshine.

gold dot

Such an easy look.  Just toss some gold studs on there and you are good to go.

Wow, this picture is really bad and shows how drying soap can be. The cap on a bottle of car oil came off on the backseat floor of my car. So I spent the afternoon shampooing the carpets.  I now 100% understand why cars have floor mats.

I do love ombre nails.  I decided to try a new color for this ombre look.  I have a few blues but it was hard to figure out five good ones for an ombre look.  I think these five polishes work together. The ring finger is a bit off but it was the best paint for that level.  The only hard thing about ombre nails is not hitting your wet nails when switching polishes.

A skull with a red bow, how cute.  The skull is just a sticker so it is easy to apply.  Then an accent nail of red glitter.  Done.  A girly skull look.  Not much else to say about this paint job.

So, Valentine's Day my be done and gone, but I am still inspired by the girly/pink paint jobs.  Nothing fancy about this paint job, just a quick stamp and a glitter tip.  I like the bow stamp.  It is a lot easier than the 3D kind you can glue on your nails.  This one won't catch on anything.

little blue bird

I based this paint job off the little blue bird vinyl decal.  Nothing fancy, just add a polka dot nail.  Easy and quick.  Very preppy.  I didn't let the pearl polish dry long enough under the vinyl decal so it is peeling up a bit at the edges (I have curved nails).  The top coat helped hold it down a bit, but I just need to take my time when doing certain paint jobs.

I finally saw "Frozen".  I am glad I did see it on the big screen, it was beautiful. It totally inspired this paint job (in the most minimalist way possible).  I might have to break out the stamps to see if there is a snowflake or two, but I tend to go with the KISS* paint jobs.  So a frosty blue with a silver/blue glitter accent nail, presto - a "Frozen" paint job.
