Stone Art and Failed stamping

Yesterday i felt an irresistible urge to do somehting arty. Luckily for me, idea came along when i saw the rocks around the house. So i created some "Stone Art" using the same one stroke technique that use for Nail art. I also used some Nail-art decal materials to enhance those little gray stones, and i really hope that you will like this.
As for a manicure, i stamped black flowers on a white base color, but however dint allow it to dry completely, so when i tried to cover it the the top coat, i totally screw the design. I took one picture of my right hand before top coat, so you can see the difference. I had to wash this manicure off, and will have to come up with something new tonight.

Aqua Rose on Blue base

Hello my Sweet Nail -Art Lovers
What a wonderful time summer, i love it, even despite the heat :)
I love swimming outdoor and i swim everywhere lakes, reservoirs and pools - i love it. I really wish to move some day closer to the ocean, so i can have even more water to swim.
So here is my aqua manicure, i just got so inspired after jumping into the pool that came up with this mani. I know it is just a flower on a blue, but it really makes me feel like i got a splash of fresh cold water on my nails.I don't do much hand painting those days, due to the busy schedule, but i think this one turned out great. What do you think?

This is my right hand, i actually like it even more than left

Strawberry shake 2

I found this manicure in one of the blogs, and just fell in love with it, such a fabulous idea. I can not remember who did this manicure originally, but if this is you please let me know and i will link to the original mani here.
Anyway here is my interpretation of a strawberry shake nails, i live this look.

Raggae Manicure

Thus weekend we attended a 6th annual reggae festival at the heart of the rocky mountains, here in colorado. I could not pass on the opportunity to make a theme inspired manicure for this special ocasion. I as in a hurry so it came out a bit sloppy in my opinion, but i am still blown with the look and the whole idea, and i hope that you ll like it too.

Pink tea rosea

I was really pelased with the manicure that i am posting today.
Yes it took me quite a time to hand paint these beautiful roses , but i think totally worth it.
I see now that i deffinately need more practice, and should make more hand painted designs. I used to be able to do painting much quicker.
So i hope that this manicure will please you too, please enjoj and feel free to comment.

This is my right hand

Hacky Summer Green Nails

Here is my manicure of the week and the last picture of nails being long. As it always happens to me, i was just trying to trim it, but went kind of really short. You will see short version in my next post.
I am not super crazy about this look, however i admire how long can my nails get, i hope you ll like the manicure

The Kitty is Alive

Today's manicure is a clone of one i did last summer and it involves hello kitty stamp.
This time i went with blue pallet again, but in my honest opinion kitty ended up looking a bit too blue, that would be a perfect drowned hello kitty :) Fortunately kitty is alive and manicure survived almost 5 long work days.
As a lot may wonder how i achieved this look - i simply stamped kitty first, and than put the glitter around the stamp using thin brush. I am thinking to make more manicures in this technique, i guess some flowers would look cool too.
