Old (but FUN!) nail art

This is a few weeks old, but I never blogged about it. I saw design this on tumblr by JamboNails and I knew I had to try it. Of course it didn't come out anything like the original, but I am super pleased with the results anyway!!

The pink is Pool Party (ChG), the green is Kiwi Cool-Ada, and the orange is Knockout Orange I think... I don't have the bottle anywhere near me so forgive me if the name is wrong! I used a nail art striper for the black lines and dots. BAD LIGHTING IS BAD. I WILL be building a gosh darned light box soon! 

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!!!

More dots - with cheap but awesome Dawn

Sometimes you get super cheap polish and it sucks - more often than not this is the case. I was pleasantly surprised by this little lady that I got from Dollar Tree. While it takes a few coats to get opaque (3 for no VNL), I really liked the finished product. It had no name, only the brand Dawn. These photos are with top coat. 

I felt it was kind of boring on its own, so I dotted it up!

These are some bonus photos of my Mom's nails. She let me do random things to them! :)

These were done for my cousin for a wedding. I was working without all of my supplies for these projects... very sad, but I guess I made it work ok - she liked them!

I'm in the process of moving at the moment, so I'm not around my computer nearly as often as I'd like to be :( But soon... soon.... NAILS EVERYWHERE. 

Thanks for reading this insanely boring post :)
