Bunny for Easter with Tutorial

 Hey guys! A super quick post today, I've been busy with school and not feeling well. I wanted to do an Easter design with bunnies again like last year, you can see that post here. Since I didn't do any tutorial for that post I thought I would try the same type of bunny with a small tutorial.

 So, if you would like to see how to do this design, keep reading.

Spring Flowers

 Hey guys! I picked up a few of the China Glaze Avant Garden polishes a while back but with school I hadn't had a chance to try them out until yesterday. I did a flower design inspired by Robin Moses, you can see that video here, on a customer at school last week and I liked the way they turned out and wanted to try them on myself since I don't usually do flowers much.
 The base is two coats of Keep Calm, Paint On which is a light mint green with shimmer. The flowers are done with acrylic paint and a bit of China Glaze white cap over the centers.

St. Patrick's Day

 Hey guys! I usually don't do much for St. Patrick's Day but I had a customer come in and want a design for it. She told me go for it and do whatever I liked. As I started to do green and gold with shamrocks she showed me a tattoo on the back of her neck of a shamrock surrounded by small black dots and stars and had to make it match. It turned out so well that I couldn't help but recreate it on myself!
 The base is OPI Goldeneye with China Glaze Running In Circles faded on the tips and Orly Monster Mash lightly over it. The shamrock and dots are done with acrylic paint.

I Theodora You and When Monkeys Fly! Layered with What Wizardry Is This?

 Hey guys! I have been super busy with school and I haven't had a lot of time for my own nails but I did pick up a few of the new OPI Oz The Great and Powerful collection polishes. The ring finger is What Wizardry Is This? and the rest is a base of I Theodora You, a light pink, followed by When Monkeys Fly!, a clear base with large gold hex glitter and small and medium holo hex glitter.
 You probably know about the issues with the large gold glitter in When Monekys Fly! curling but, honestly, it wasn't that big of an issue for me. Then again, maybe I am just distracted by how gorgeous it is.

More Animal Print? Yes, More Animal Print

 Hey guys, another Tiger print design today! These are always a huge hit, no matter how you do them, they are always adored. The base is OPI Alpine Snow with Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Pink Promise over the entire nail followed by Animal-istic sponged on the tips and black acrylic paint for the stripes.

Sinful Colors Sweet Nothing with Unicorn

 Hey guys! It's been a long week for me. On Monday I started Nail Tech School! I wasn't sure if I was going to announce it here but thought I should. It's something I have been wanting to do for a while now and finally just decided to go for it. If everything goes as planned I should graduate the end of April or beginning of May.
 Today I have Sweet Nothing, from the Sugar Rush Collection, a beautiful turquoise blue. I paired it with Unicorn, a light yellow, since they seemed to compliment each other fantastically. Picture is two coats of Sweet Nothing with Unicorn Dotted around the cuticle on my ring finger followed by top coat.
