Dino Eggs

I was bored and decided to try out some mini glitter nail polishes I've never used. Then I decided to see how it'd look with black shatter over it and I came out with this mani! It looks like mini dinosaur eggs!!

OPI Black Shatter Dino Egg
I love it!!!
I don't know the names of the mini glitter polishes I used but they came in a set of four from Ulta.

Kisses and Crackle

While looking at some other nail polish/art blogs I came across a cute Valentine's mani. It was at Chloe's Nails She has tons of fun designs and I decided to try one out. I did mine a little different and I added black shatter. I really like how it turned out :)

China Glaze Limbo Bimbo Valentine Nails

The black base color is Goth by Orly
The kisses are in Red Chrome and Silver Chrome Quick Color Pens by Sally Hansen
I used Bundle Monster stamping plate BM02 for the kisses
The pink base color is Limbo Bimbo by China Glaze
Over Limbo Bimbo I used Black Shatter by OPI

An Old Favorite

I love doing this nail design. It's something I learned how to do from my big sister when I was little. I've always liked how the stripes looked and it's fun mixing colors and designs. For as long as I've done this design, I've always used the same method of application. It's kind of weird but it works for me. I assume people would use a thin brush to do their stripes, but I use a strand of hair. It's always been easier for me. I have tried to use a brush but it just doesn't work out for me. Anyway here is the design I currently have on my nails. I really like how it came out!

I don't normally like sheer polishes but I like this one a lot. Especially since it's glittery!!
