Les Nail Smiths, September 2015: Double Processed Stamping

Hey, everyone!

For September's Les Nail Smiths theme, I chose double processed stamping. It's a fairly new and kinda tricky stamping technique but the results are well worth the effort! I won't really go too much into the details of how it's done, but if you're curious then please check out this post by Lacquer Lockdown! It's described really well there. Anyway, keep reading below to find out more about my double processed stamping look!

Farewell to Summer

Hey, everyone!

Even though the weather here is still pretty toasty (I know, I'm a broken record), the first day of Fall is quickly approaching! So I thought I'd do a sort of last colorful farewell to Summer and its vibrant colors. Don't worry, I'll keep using bright fun colors all year round! Keep reading to find out more!

Tik Tok, The Army of Oz

Hey, everyone!

Everybody is familiar with The Wizard of Oz. But its movie sequel, Return to Oz, is a lot less well-known. It wasn't very successful in theaters, because of its much darker plot, but I for one grew up watching it on a very regular basis on VHS. After rewatching it recently (I hadn't watched it in the last dozen years or so), I decided to do some nail art inspired by my favorite character from it, Tik Tok! Keep reading to find out more!

Hey, everyone!

It's that time of year when the weather is starting to cool down (except here where it's gonna be triple digits most of this week...), and you know what that means!

To start off the season, I thought I'd share a new polish I got from China Glaze. Keep reading to find out more!
