Simple skull accents, plus my v-day mani.

Helloooo everyone! As you can see, I have iiiitty bitty stumps right now.. I put acrylics on myself for v-day, and after I removed them I trimmed my nails down as short as I could, because I wanted some new growth, and because they were a little thin. It's easier for me to work with short nails, anyways. They looked a little sad, so I slapped on some Revlon "Facets of Fuchsia" and some little skull accents for fun.

These are what they looked like before I took my acrylics off.. sparkly sparkly, haha. I don't do many acrylics on my clients, so I like playing around on myself sometimes.

Fall Out Boy nails.. light 'em up!

So.. most of you probably aren't aware, but I am  HUGE Fall Out Boy fan. Huge. Ever since 2003. I love them to death, and just today, they came off a 3 year hiatus to announce a new album/tour. I AM SO HAPPY. I cried a little, I'll admit it. People don't understand how much this band means to me.

These are based on the new video for the single remix, where all their old merch and albums are being burned.. I loved it. Great symbolism. I'm really happy with the way these turned out.. and I hope to God I can get tickets for their tour.

Turquoise stone nails

Hello! Have some pretty, shiny turquoise nails for you this week.. I saw someone do these on tumblr with the water-spotted method, which I tried, and wasn't a huge fan of on its own. I ended up going back and reworking the black veins by hand with polish and acetone to get the look I wanted. I might do a tutorial since people have been asking about it on tumblr, we'll see if my camera cooperates or not..

Anyway! I love these. LOVE. My old as hell camera does them no justice at all, they seriously look like real turquoise irl.
