Tickle Me Elmo

You must have grown up watching at least 1 episode of sesame street.  My favourite was Elmo and Big Bird.  I thought I'd go with Elmo this time.  I wanted to wear red =)

You will need:
  • Wet n Wild Wild Shine in Red Red
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White on
  • Jordana in Black
  • Joe in Crush
  • Seche Vite Top Coat (Finally got another bottle)

1. Paint a semi circle on the tip of your thumb.

2.  Dot on 2 white dots for the eyes.  Keep them close together.

3.  Paint on the smile with black.  Don't forget to dot his eyes!

4.  Of course, finish with the orange nose and a top coat.

Hope you like this one.  I haven't had much time to do my nails lately.  When I do have time, I can't make them too over the top.  Anyway, I'll try to keep doing at least 1 design a week.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful start to summer!!

Cheetah Cheetah

I'm not usually a fan of animal prints but lately, I feel like it's growing on me.  I've done a full set of cheetah nails before on myself and on my friends.  I think this print looks best on nails.  Zebra is nice but I felt that was too easy to do a tutorial on =P

You will need:
  • Joe Fresh in Caramel
  • Revlon in Chocolate Truffle
  • Jordana in Black
  • Rimmel Top Coat
  • Thin paintbrush

1.  Paint your nails a creamy caramel base.  I just got Joe Fresh in Caramel recently and LOVE it!  It's a nice neutral polish to wear to work.

2.  Dot varying sized spots randomly in a brown polish with the polish brush.

3.  With a thin paintbrush and black, paint around the brown dots.  You don't have to be neat.  You also don't have to connect the black lines into a full circle.

3.  Add some filler dots, shapes and lines around.  Rawr!

I love this combo for cheetah nails!  I only painted my ring finger since I still have work tomorrow.  I've read up on the rules and I'm allowed to wear polish as long as it's not chipped.  But even so, I like to keep it a little bit subtle.

Have fun!

Hoot Goes the Owl

Owl nails!  I got inspired by a photo album/scrapbook my boyfriend and I are putting together.  There are owls everywhere!  They don't really have a significance to us but they're gosh darn cute =)

You will Need:

  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mint Sorbet
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On
  • Revlon in Chocolate Truffle
  • Jordana in Black
  • Top coat of your choice
  • Thin painbrush/dotting tool
 Hoot hoot!

1.  Paint on a colour for the body of your owl.  I chose Mint Sorbet.

2.  Make two larger white dots close to each other.  These will be the eyes.

3.  Outline the white in black with a thin paintbrush.

4.  I dotted the eyes in Chocolate Truffle.

5.  Upside down triangle in between the eyes for the beak.  I also used Chocolate Truffle.

6.  Using the same colour again, give the owl a feathery belly.

I actually find real owls very scary; especially when they turn their heads completely around!  Anyway, I thought this was easy to do and cute.  Hope you have fun with it =)
