Hello Kitty in glitter

Did a nail design inspired by one of the cutest and favorite character, Hello Kitty i tried to draw her and honestly she's extremely hard (there's so many way you can go wrong with her) I think i'm a bit scared to continue trying to do her. So instead i bought the Konad plate of her's and it's one of the best things i could of done. She looks fantastic. I'm still going to stick to doing my hand drawn art, because i feel like a cheater just stamping but it's a great alternative. Hope you like

Electric Daisy Carnival 2011

So a few of my friends and my brother (Edgar) will be attending the Electric Daisy Carnival in Vegas this coming up weekend so i decided to do a design just for them. Using the logo of the Daisies and colorful lights hope u like.

China Glaze 'Ghoulish Glow' Review

What better way to compliment this Raver design then glow in the dark nails! Well i was a little hesitant to use China Glaze 'Ghoulish Glow' because almost every single review i have read say's it doesn't work! Well i have just proven them all wrong because it really does work. You just really have to know how to use GLOW in the dark objects. Firs u have to really shake the bottle i mean like crazy (about 20-30 times or after each coat)  took about 12 coats which is a little too much but if u really want it to work then just do it! Once all my nails had the necessary coats  i recharged my nails (ha ha ha sound funny but seriously i did) under a normal light bulb and that automatically did the trick, check out how bright they got! These are definitely raver nails!

that's some serious glow Reminds me of Kriptonite 

here's the bottle

Move over leopard print it's all about the SNAKE SKIN!

I've seen several manicures strutting the snake skin and it looks really cool so i thought i should give it a try. Love how it looks. Hope you like. Used several shimmery polishes to create this look. 

Used: Orly 'Dazzle', and 'Rage', Essie 'Master Plan', Rimmel 'Black Satin' and 'French White'

The greatest show alive

About a month ago I read 'Water for Elephants' by Sara Gruen, It's a wonderful book about life in the Circus but mainly it's a love story the movie just came out starting Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon anyways i had promised i would do a circus design and like promise here it is. 
I tried to incorporate main circus attractions like a show elephant 
(specially since in 'Water for Elephants' Rosie the Elephant is one of the main characters)
we then have a juggling monkey, the circus tent, a very bright clown and colorful balloons.
Hope you like

The Circus
