Cat On The Moon: Watermarble Glow In The Dark Halloween Nail Art Design

I have the final design in my Halloween trifecta for you today. This one is to honor my two black fur babies, Chance and Destiny, who you'll get to meet again towards the end of the post. "Spooky" is the last theme for October in my N.A.I.L Group (Nail Art Ideas Linkup) and I think this design is the closest I've gotten to it.

Velvet Tapestry feat. Colors by Llarowe for Favorite Indie #NAILlinkup

When I saw "Favorite Indie" as one of the prompts for October in my N.A.I.L. Group (Nail Art Ideas Linkup) I thought to myself "well that will be an easy one". Famous last words in nail art land. I have a drawer of Colors by Llarowe polishes, so that choice was easy. But as I started riffling through it in search of a color combination it dawned on me...if I am going to pay homage to my favorite indie it should to be good, REALLY GOOD.

Casper: Watermarble Halloween Nail Art for HPB October Link-Up

I have a special design for you today that I created for the first Link-up of my Hobby Polish Bloggers Group (HPB) on Facebook. We plan to do one every month going forward and this time the theme is Halloween. This group is best for the more casual polish blogger and has been an excellent resource for me. I've learned so much from these ladies! It is a Closed group, so you'll need to send a request to join. Now for the nail art!

Finally Fall! Nail Art Design: Featuring Serum No. 5 Polishes

I was out and about the other day, the temperature was in the low 70's and I noticed some of the trees had started to change colors. Finally Fall has come to New Mexico! So I got inspired to sneak in one more Fall design before my focus changes to Halloween. And I just so happened to have received two polishes from Serum No. 5 recently that I thought would fit the theme perfectly!

Stamping 101 Part 2: Struggling with Stamping? Try These Techniques!

First let me say that I am sorry you are having trouble learning to stamp your nails. I had a terrible time myself, struggling for months and giving up many times, figuring it just wasn't meant to be. I watched a ton of videos during that time created by some of the most experienced stampers on YouTube. I picked up bits and pieces from all of them and ultimately learned that there are several different ways to perform all of the steps that are part of the stamping process. Some of them worked for me, some didn't, and I added my own twist to a few. I decided to create this set of HD videos to show you every way I know of to do each step and I perform them using varying tools. This is a lengthy post so I recommend you grab a beverage and get comfy.

Breast Cancer Awareness Design with Texture for #NAILlinkup

I am sure you already know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I knew I wanted to do a design, but I was having the hardest time coming up with a concept. Then I saw the "Textured" prompt for October in my N.A.I.L Group (Nail Art Ideas Linkup) and suddenly the ideas wouldn't stop coming!

My Toga in the Mirror featuring Colors by Llarowe

I wonder how many people will happen upon this post just due to the title. I enjoy coming up with fun names for my nail art designs and once I got this one in my head nothing else compared. My fellow Colors by Llarowe fans will almost certainly get the gist and I hope everyone else will read on to discover the deeper meaning!

Black and White Peek-A-Boo: Stamped Nail Art Design

Today I have a design for you that was inspired by all of the gorgeous nail art created for Black & White day of #31DC2014. I've always found the combination to be striking and I'm a little surprised it took me this long to do a design. I also added a twist to it that was inspired by a design Jacqui at Crafynail created recently.
