ROSES for #omd2nails

Not sure why I’m afraid to paint roses.  I tried them a couple times and they were harder than I thought.  I dunno!  So I stamped my roses for today’s design. :)

FRUIT for #omd2nails

It’s FRUIT day in the Oh Mon Dieu Challenge! There’s a few fruits that I really wanna try- especially stawberries, watermelon and cherries. But ever since I saw Wondrously Polished’s pineapple nails here, I knew that I had to try them!  Her pineapples are much smaller on the nail, while I went for a bigger fruit design.  But I added some holographic goodness to mine.  I recently ordered 4 I Love…

NEGATIVE SPACE for #omd2nails

I had a hard time getting inspired for today’s OMD2 prompt. So I figured I’d use striping tape, since I NEVER EVER USE IT, LIKE EVER. And that’s what a nail challenge is all about right? Pushing yourself to try new things!

FEATHERS for #omd2nails

I love feather designs on nails, so I had a hard time choosing what to do for today’s Oh Mon Dieu prompt.  Then I stumbled upon this pin of tomatomelon‘s dreamcatcher nails on pinterest. And the lightbulb went off!  I used her design as inspiration and came up with this cool dreamcatcher manicure using opi sheer tints and the lead light technique.  I also did a few nails with an OPI liquid sand…

CHEVRON for #omd2nails

I was in the mood for something girly so for my CHEVRON design I started with two coats of a pretty bubblegum pink called Sweet by Zoya. Then I stamped a chevron design over top using Essie Butler Please. That polish didn’t stamp as well as I thought it would so I filled in a little extra blue with a striper brush. Then hand-painted some little blue bows and added some rhinestones.

OMBRE for #omd2nails

Ombre- having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.

That’s the definition from Merriam Webster in case you aren’t 100% sure of what ombre meant. I’ve seen a lot of different versions of ombre nails.  Sometimes it’s a gradient where the base of the nails fades into a different color at the tips.  But I’ve also…

GALAXY for #omd2nails

It’s GALAXY NAILS DAY!  I wanted to do a space theme with a little alien head popping up out of the corner of my nail.  I thought an alien would add some quirkiness to my galaxy.  But the closest thing I could find was this little UFO on my Cheeky stamping plate.  So today I’m wearing a nice black galaxy nail with glitter, some yellow stars and a UFO!
