CHANEL INSPIRED NAILS

I saw Khloe Kardashian post these nails a while ago and I've always wanted to try them out.

After getting Chanel decals from www.SighStar.com I decided to finally do them.


I used black acrylic paint from the paint drips. Base color is OPI's "Glints of Glinda." I added a matte top coat over it all.

To apply the Chanel decal I cut the design I wanted out, removed the plastic, dipped the decal in water for 15 seconds, slid it off with my finger (I suggest wetting your nail before so you can move the decal around in case you don't place it where you quite want it at first), applied it on my nails, and added top coat. Then a matte top coat.

Get these decals and more at www.SighStar.com ! Only a little over a dollar for each decal and they're so pretty and you can't even tell they're decals.

FALL 2013 SUPER BLACK LACQUERS BY NATALIE DEE

The new Fall 2013 collection from Super Black Lacquers is out and they're beauuutiful! Three of the four polishes are holo and they apply so easily and are opaque in just two coats. And if you have the patience to wait you don't even need a top coat the finishing is so shiny!

This first one is "Spanked" and it's a pink holo. So beautiful.
This second one is "heather" and it's my favorite from my collection (have you noticed my favorite color is purple?). IT'S SO PRETTY. I can't stop staring at my nails when I have tis on. 
This gold is "Guilty" and it's a light yellowish gold. Another holo. Super pretty and perfect for fall, it reminds me of Autumn.
This last one is "3RD Degree" and it's perfect for fall or winter. It's a metallic orange red and opaque in two coats.

All these looks were two coats and one coat of top coat. But like I said you can use them without top coat the finish is so shiny. The holos were to die for. Pictures do not do them justice. Make sure to grab yours at Super Black Lacquer!

MIX & MATCH LEOPARD STUDDED CHEVRON NAILS

I couldn't decide what design I wanted so I came up with a mix & match design that includes leopard spots, a chevron design, a few studded nails, and glitter!

Products Used:
I loved everything I used for this look. I applied the studs and pearls with nail art glue. This is probably one of my favorite looks I've created so I made sure to put nail art glue this time instead of just top coat like I usually do.

Thank you to HB Beauty Bar, Born Pretty Store, Hex Nail Jewelry, and Tmart for all of these amazing goods!

OPI MISS UNIVERSE COLLECTION 2013

The new OPI Miss Universe Collection is a limited edition three piece set which includes "I'm Feeling Sashy" "Miss You-niverse" and "This Gown Needs A Crown".

It's now available at HB Beauty Bar for $7.95 each and if you use my code "MODNAILS" at checkout you get 10% off!

This first look is "This Gown Needs A Crown" and I'm in lovvve. It's a satin finish and it has a cute little crown jewel on the bottle. This is three coats, no top coat. Back in April my friend went to Japan and brought me back so many amazing nail art gems, I used one of them on my accent nail. I haven't been able to find them online :( I use nail glue to apply the charms. It doesn't damage my natural nail and it stays on for 2-3 days (this gem is pretty heavy). Perfect for a night out!

This next look is a gradient using "I'm Feeling Sashy" and "Miss You-niverse". One is with a matte top coat and the other is with Seche Vite Top Coat. I also added some roses!


Grab these limited edition polishes soon before they run out! I couldn't choose a favorite. They're all so pretty and purple is my favorite color so of course I loved it.

XOXO NAIL CANDY POLIShES

I haven't tried many holographic nail polishes until now and maybe it's just XOXO Nail Candy polishes but I am in looooove. Now I know what all the hype is about.

This first one is a gradient using "Sitting On A Fluffy Cloud" and "Unheard Prayers" from the Heavenly Holo collection (the purple bottle I'm holding). Both took only ONE coat of polish. There was so much coverage on one stroke. The holographic glitter in these polishes is amazing.

This next look is "Pretty In Purple," a glitter top coat, over OPI's "My Vampire is Buff." It's a glitter with stars, hearts, hexagons, and diamonds. It's such a fitting name since it really is such a pretty purple glitter.

"Clown Hugs" is one of my favorites. This is over OPI's "Black Onyx." This glitter top coat is so fun. I added a matte top coat over it. It reminds me of the clown maze at Knotts Scary Farm haha but in a good way. I love this.

This last look is "Unsinfully Nude" and "I Want A Pink Holo Halo." More gorgeous holo-ness!

My favorite is "Unheard Prayers," probably because purple is my favorite color and the holographic glitter is mesmerizing.

Make sure to grab some bottles, perfect for the holidays!

HAPPY BELATED HALLOWEEN!

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween! I had to come up with a super quick last minute outfit so I had one of the common costumes ever, a cat haha. I bought a pair of ears at Party City and wore all black, painted the whiskers and nose and voila. I'm sad Halloween is over but that just means Thanksgiving is almost here and I finally get to see my family!

Here are the nails I sported on Halloween:
Products Used:


I definitely recommend getting some Holiday decals from Born Pretty Store! They're so easy to apply stay on as long as the nail polish stays on. I did these nails on Tuesday and they're still on and no chip.
