Manicure Monday – Punk Nails

Happy Mani Monday! These are my punk inspired nails for a role I was recently cast in :)


To create this look, I used 2 layers of OPI’s black matte for the base, 1 layer of OPI’s Silver Shatter on top and finished it with an ultra gloss top coat.

Painted nail art for three very patient girls this week. They have the smallest nails on their hands and toes!

Emma is a big fan of the Seahawks so we went with a blue and green theme for her nails. I painted a pale blue for the base and using a thin nail art brush I painted bright blue and pastel green polish to create the short horizontal brush strokes on her nails. I then used white polish on a stamper plate to create the flower and finished the flower with a few blue microbeads (the same that are used for caviar nails). And last but not least, TOP COAT!

Hannah asked me to recreate a design she found on Instagram. I had to modify the look a bit because her nails were so tiny!

I think they turned out great!




Ella and Hannah - Pink!


Ella, who is adorable at 3 years old, had only one request. Pink polish! So I painted her toenails pink and using a white Tipp metal tip polish I painted a tiny flower on her big toe.

Hannah asked for polka dots on her toes. I  used the same white Tipp metal tip polish I used for Ella’s toes to create the dots. The trick to painting polka dots is making sure that they’re all evenly spaced out. If they’re placed haphazardly they start to look like pox instead of polka dots and we don’t want that! I started with placing one diagonal row of dots across the nail and then placed the rest of the dots in rows next to them.

And Voila! Three very happy customers! :)
