Amp it up with a neon leopard print using China Glaze Electric Nights

Wednesday, March 25, 2015


The newest China Glaze Collection "Electric Nights" screams for some neon nail art. So I used a few of them in a neon leopard print.

I used Red-y to Rave, Home Sweet House Music, Daisy Know My Name, Liquid Leather and White on White to create this amped up leopard print. (Liquid Leather and White on White are part of previous China Glaze collections. You can see swatches of the collection on my previous post here.

This is a relatively easy nail art look to achieve. I have a tutorial of it that I previously posted here. One thing I can say is my photos have improved immensely. This tutorial was posted a couple of years ago. It's still one of my favorite nail art looks.

China Glaze is adding a bit of a beat to the spring and summer season with the Electric Nights Collection.

Twelve electrifying polishes will add a spark to those summer days... and nights. 

These neon crèmes and glitter top coats will be sure to amp up your manicure. So let's take a look at these fun vibrant polishes. 

Let's start with a water marble created with some of these bright bombshells. I marbled over China Glaze White on White.

Now let's move on to the swatches. All of these except for DJ Blue My Mind and Plur-ple are swatched over white. I decided after swatching those two that I wanted to show you how vibrant they can really be. But even without a white base coat, they are pretty bright. I have not used top coat with any of these swatches and the shine is amazing.

Violet-Vibes is an ultra-violet purple crème. This vibrant purple shade leans a lot toward a violet orchid. This is two coats over China Glaze White on White. I had no issues with application.

UK Wildcats are on fire: inspired nail art

Sunday, February 15, 2015

The Kentucky Wildcats are on fire! The team is my all-time favorite team. I grew up in Kentucky and hearing the 'Cats on the radio or watching them on TV was the norm. 

They are 25-0 this year and I swear I can hear the whoops and hollers all the way in Wyoming. I have created UK nail art in the past. But with their amazing winning streak right now I had to create another.

I used Elevation Polish Lake of the Isles for the blue and China Glaze White on White for the white. I usually just do paw prints. But this year I found an alphabet set of scrapbook punches - so I created the UK decals with those. If you want to know more about punch decals, take a look at this tutorial.

I love the final look. Of course the letters aren't the right font at all. But I still love it.

I can't wait to follow the Wildcats in the next few weeks.

13 Days Of January: Day 2: Happiness - Boston Terrier nail art

Monday, January 5, 2015

Today's post is day 2 of the13 Days of January Nail Art Challenge! Today's prompt is Happiness and I struggled to think of something. I mean, there are tons of things that make me happy. But portraying that on my nails could be difficult. But my dogs make me happy. 

I recently got a Boston Terrier puppy and she makes me very happy - as do my other two dogs. I chose to go with Boston Terrier nail art because it was the simplest of my dogs to recreate. I didn't want to even think about creating all the wrinkles of an English Bulldog, or all the fur from a Shih Tzu.

I used Zoya Breezi for the base color, Colors by Llarowe Vincent and China Glaze White on White for the dog and the paws. 

What do you think?

China Glaze Twinkle Collection - part two: swatches, review

Tuesday, November 4, 2014


The days are getting shorter and ready or not... the holidays are just around the corner. To celebrate the holidays China Glaze has released its holiday 2014 collection - Twinkle!

China Glaze® Twinkle features 11 new polishes and one effects top coat. I am going to show you six of them in this post. You can see the other six polishes here.

The formula on these polishes is great. I didn't have any issues. I did apply most of the glitter polishes over a base color though. That's just how I like them. There are some great polishes in this collection.

Let's take a look at the second half of this amazing, festive collection. The polishes are in no particular order. 

December to Remember is a dark blue iridescent shimmer polish. The shimmer is primarily gold toned. It is a classic polish that will look good on most skin tones. This is three light coats with a top coat.
