Random Nail Art Dump

First up is a design inspired by a patterned walled I had found while out shopping yesterday. The sponge ombre base is a combination of 3 Essie Polishes, "Haute as Hello", "In The Cab-Ana", and "Butler Please". I then use Enchanted Polish's "Djinn In A Bottle" before creating the tri-color cheetah print, in Essie's "Lady Godiva", OPI's "Wooden Shoe Like To Know", and Orly's "Passion Fruit". I then finished with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast Speed Dry top coat. This took about 2 hours total, which I spend watching Harry Potter in the background ;).

This next look I simply wanted to do some straight even polka dots all within the same color family. The base is China Glaze's "For Audrey", with OPI "Alpine Snow" and butter LONDON "Slapper" for the dots. These dots came out much smaller and more concentrated than my pink on pink design, mainly since I got a new double-ended dotting tool. A.C. Moore for $1.29!

Lastly is a simple look inspired by an ILNP dark gray holo polish called "A.C. Slater" as inspired by the 90's show "Saved By The Bell". Sorry for the shaky cam look! This look was achieved by simply applying a layer of "Djinn In A Bottle" over Essie's "Power Clutch". I really love the way it pops!

Happy Polishing!


  1. How did you do the leopard print? stamping or by hand? It looks awesome!

  2. Thanks! I do my patterns free hand - for this one I used the fine point of my double-ended dotting tool, but typically I'll use a fine tipped brush.
