I couldn't suppress my inner rainbow any longer!

Hey everyone! There's a lot of new faces around here and I couldn't be happier! I know y'all came for the awesome giveaway but hopefully you'll stay for the awesome nail art? Maybe? Please? My manicure for you today is one I did for someone at work. They told me they wanted to see rainbows so I obliged. It took a while, probably about an hour and was kind of a pain in the butt! I love the result though!
So, I've got some happy on my nails for the next few days! YAY

My First Giveaway!

Well, I was going to wait till I had some sort of substantial following, like maybe 50. But I just couldn't wait any longer! I went out shopping today and found some awesome prizes and knew it was time to reward some of my loyal followers and maybe bring some new faces around here! As of right now, I am planning on there being one winner only but if there are a lot of entries I might make a runner up prize as well. The giveaway ends on Oct. 9. Here are the wonderful prizes!

From right to left, China Glaze Ruby Pumps Mini, Orly Spazmatic and China Glaze Man Hunt, all brand new of course!

Also, a 4 piece set of L.A. Intense Neons!

Yay! Thanks for entering my very first giveaway!

Chinese architecture!

On one of the reddit subs, RandomActsOfPolish, someone is holding a competition in which we were to choose a photo and create a manicure inspired by it. Sooo, I looked through lots and lots of my old photos from China and picked this one that I took in the Forbidden City in Beijing!

Now there's a lot going on in that picture so I decided just to pick a few elements out like some of the intricate wooden carvings and the written banner. Here is the result! I wasn't happy with my photographs of this manicure because as hard as I tried, flash and no flash I couldn't get the color to photograph right. The actual color in person is a lot greener like the color on the pillars in the photo above. Maybe it's time to build a light box.

Yay! I like this manicure! I think I'll keep it for a while (three days maybe)!

DNA Sequence?

Ooops. I'm a couple days behind in posting. I did these a couple days ago. My original plan was to make them into bones but I stopped after I made the dots because I thought it looked cool!

Minty bows!

I used Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet for the green and Spoiled Correction Tape for the white bows.

3D Shades of Pink

These were inspired by a manicure by The Daily Nail Blog

Love this nude!

I've always been afraid of nudes but when I came across this one today and got home and tried it out, it was just perfect! Then I added the tips to just spice it up a little.

The nude is an e.l.f polish that has no name! It is part of a Target exclusive e.l.f collection and none of them have names sadly. The tips are black with Essie Shine of the Times on top!

Happy rainbow piano!

I saw this on some blog somewhere and I really don't like to take inspiration without crediting but it was on a compilation site and doesn't have a watermark on it. It's such a happy manicure though!

I feel like there's happy rainbow music on my fingers!
