May favorites

I remember saying last month that I thought May would bring some more chrome manis, and guess I was right! May was the month that I experimented a little more with the chrome powder. I tired it with nail vinyls and the result turned out so much better than I though it would!

It’s so hard to pick a favorite from these, but If I had to pick one I would be the chrome scales.

Which one do you like the most?

March favorites 

Ooops I totally forgot to post my favorite designs from March here in the blog too, you may have already seen them on my Instagram page.

It looks like bright colors and gradient was my obsession this past month! ❤

My absolute favorite design from March is my freehanded Hufflepuff nails. Which one of these designs do you like the most?

Hufflepuff

A while ago I was invited to a Harry Potter themed nail art group on instagram, and since I’m a huge HP fan I was super excited to join. The first theme we decided to create was house pride. This was a bit tricky for me at first, since I didn’t know which house I belonged to. I’ve actually thought about this before, that I should be sorted but I just haven’t figured it out. I kind of knew that it would be either Hufflepuff or Slytherin, and I was happy when the sorting hat finally said “Hufflepuff!”.

For my Hufflepuff mani I obviously had to use Hufflepuff from Pahlish, which is the base for the design. To create the stripes I used Gift wrap stencils from Snail vinyls and Midnight Mischief from Painted Polish. The background for the other two nails are created using stamping plate BP-30 from Born Pretty Store and I just can’t cope-cabana from OPI. Then I used black and white acrylic paint and Detail brush 24 Dance from Whats up nails to paint the H and the badger over the leaf pattern. I finished off the design with two coats of HK Girl for a super glossy result!

I am so happy with these nails and I’m really impressed with how my badger turned out, so be prepared for a lot of photos of these nails!

I hope you like these nails as much as I do, and I’m really looking forward to making more HP themed manis in the near future.

Any HP fans out there? Let me know in the comments which house you belong to!

February favorites

Here are my favorite manis from February. I think you can tell from them that I long for spring…

Which one of these do these do you like the most?

 

December 22 | Textured snowflakes

Hello there, or good night (since it’s 11pm in Sweden right now). Today was my last day at work this year and it’s gonna be so nice to have a little vacation!

For day 22 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I’m showing you these textured snowflake nails from last winter.

Here I used Alpine snow and Kiss me at midnight from OPI and Snowflake stencils from Snail vinyls. I have to admit that after these photos were taken I instantly added top coat. I like the look of textured nails, but I hate the feel of textured nails. They stick to my tights (I almost always wear dresses) and clothes and I don’t like that. How do you feel about textured nails?

December 21 | Gingerbread man

I think I mentioned a couple of days ago that one of my nails broke and is really really short now. I had to trim the other nails as well, but it looks really weird with the one super short nail. :/ I thought that I could just take photos of Cindy instead, but it turns out Cindy can’t pose at all, she just looks like a claw. So for these last few days until Christmas I decided to share some manis that I made last Christmas.

For this mani I used Alpine snow, What’s your point-settia?, Christmas gone plaid and You don’t know Jaques! from OPI together with Straight vinyls and Gingerbread man stencils form Snail vinyls.

December 14 | Candy cane

Today is day 14 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator and that means that it’s been two weeks of Christmas manis and that it’s only 10 days left until Christmas! Have you started buying Christmas gifts yet? I have bough a few, but I still have some left to get.

Today I’ve made candy cane nails and they are look so shiny and tasty, I almost want to eat them.

The base is my favorite white polish called Alpine snow and I paired it with Let your love shine from last years holiday collection from OPI. The candy canes are made with Candy cane stencils and Gift wrap stencils from Snail Vinyls.
