Harry Potter Lives

My long time client is headed to the opening of the new Harry Potter land at Universal Studios and wanted some fun nails for her trip.  I've never seen any of the Harry Potter movies or even read the books, so I had to consult Google for Harry Potter images to get an idea of what to do.  I drew out these nails on paper then put them on her nails a few weeks later. I thought they turned out so cute!!

The nails were done using colored acrylic and the painting was done using craft paint.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Not only do I look forward to doing Halloween nails in October, but I can also have fun doing Breast Cancer Awareness nails.  I did a cute set for this client last year with pink ghosts to "save the boobies" and this year we wanted something a little more wild.  She saw a photo on Pinterest and wanted me to copy parts of it.  Here's what she got!!

Breast Cancer Awareness boobie nails
These were done with hot pink acrylic and 3D sculpted acrylic boobs.  They make me laugh every time I look at them!!

A Little Early Halloween

Because Halloween is right around the corner, and because I can't wait any longer, I just HAVE to post some of the early Halloween nails I've done so far!!

Halloween witch nails
Totally love this set!!  I used all acrylic for the background then drew the witch's legs with acrylic paint.  Seriously, so cute!!

Halloween nails
Here is a set of Halloween nails I did using a few non-traditional Halloween colors.  The Bride's face is a glow in the dark green acrylic.  I sculpted her cute pink bow and added a hot pink spider sitting in a web.

 Here is a cute set I did using black acrylic and some glow in the dark acrylic colors.  The eyes and ghosts are 3D!

Halloween spider nails
My client found a set like this on Pinterest and I decided to change it up a little.  I used a purple glitter acrylic and cut her nails to an angle.  I hand painted the spider lines and sculpted a 3D neon green glow in the dark spider.  The ring fingers are even shaped like spider webs!!

This is another view of the previous set.  I just loved how they turned out!!
