Two weeks ago I did this design for an event that I had to go to. I named them royalty nails because the red, gold, and gems just scream queen to me. As you can see I did a french tip but the base is red and the tip is gold. to spice the design up a little bit more I added beads to the line where the red and gold polish meet and a rhinestone at the nail bed. On the middle finger I decided to paint the whole nail gold and add lots of sparkle and bling to it. I did so by adding a simple design using rhinestones. I loved this one so much, I hope you guys do to!!! ------------------------peaceout, c.lette
Some weeks ago I did a simple yet blinged design. I chose to do the design on top of a nude that I have by Essie. Although there isn't any painting or polish involved in the design it turned out pretty. I just used rhinestones in different shapes and beads in different colors. There isn't too much to say about this design but I hope you guys like! ----------------------peaceout, c.lette

This week I've upped the anty and did a mani that I absolutely love. My past manis haven't been so good looking or stand outish enough for me but that all changed this week. I had the perfect amount of time to do something hella awesome to my nails.Since I've been having the worst of luck maintaining length I decided to do a mani that is totally girly and blinding with bling. A few weeks after the big haul I ordered more design elements like rhinestones, fimo canes, etc. As I was looking though the things I saw some Hello Kitty fimo canes and figured Id do a mani based around them. So the design wouldn't be over done with Hello Kitty I put just one on one finger of each hand. Most people do pink Hello Kitty designs but the ones I have are wearing red bows so red is the polish used. I just did simple red french tips then dawned my nails with different sizes of white pearls and clear/silver rhinestones. It turned out great I LOVE it so much. I think its classy with just enough bling to it as to where they are noticeable. I hope you guys like!!!!!!!!!! ------------------------peaceout, c.lette

Happy Easter everyone!!! This Easter I chose to do a egg and chick design. Since its Easter of course I chose pastel colors and pearls. All the colors used were by Wet and Wild. this was a rushed quick design so eh, to make it somewhat blingy I added apearls and studs. I'm not going to go into detail about this design because its fairly simple, its not my best but I hope you guys like. -------------------peaceout, c.lette

When I received everything from my haul I decided to do a few gel designs. The first is a pink and purple whimsical flower design with a dried flower encapsulated in it, then there is the hot love gel nail that I did for valentines day, and lastly the fruity smoothie gel nail that has fimo canes encapsulated in it. They aren't perfect but I like to think that for a first try they turned out great.I tried once to do gel nails on myself but it didn't go to well but when doing gel nails on practice fingers it isn't all that hard and I have the hang of it better. be expecting more gel designs soon. I also got some acrylic things that I've been dabbling in and I did my first edge nail, once again its not the best but darn it I was freaking exciting and happy when I did it and saw that it didn't look like total crap. Since its spring break I will be trying to get a few posts in to make up for the short absence so look forward to that. I hope you guys like!!!! -------------------peaceout, c.lette
Lately I've really been wanting to get into doing nail art and designs with acrylic and gel, so I figured why not just go the distance. No I dont have a license or anything but I look at it this way, I've taught myself how to do alot of things and I've come this far with my nail art so why not dabble my hand into this. I have made up my mind and in the future I do plan on going to nail tech school and getting all of the certification and stuff but until then I'll be doing my own thing. Anyways thats enough rambling lets get down to the whole reason why this post is being made, THE HAUL!!!!! I did what I do best and I went shopping on Amazon lol and of course I found a whole bunch of stuff that I of course ordered! For starters there is a whole complete 36 color set of gel, 36 set of acrylic powder primer kit(it comes with so much stuff in it its unreal), practice fingers, nail dehydrate, no lift nail primer, nail forms, false nail slicer, nail display wheels, a UV lamp, and the top coat that all nail artists/designers swear bye Seche Vite. I can't wait to do some nails, it going to be hectic at my house when family and freinds come over but it will all be worth it! I hope you all enjoyed this post because I'm certainly going to enjoy playing with my new collection of nail art supplies. So far I've done four different designs, three gel and one acrylic. -----------------peaceout, c.lette p.s.: I'm working on getting my first giveaway put together so stay looking out for my posts!

A week ago I did my nails in this glittery chevron design! I was very satisfied with it seeing as though I didn't use any striping tape. I just took the polish and painted 3/4 of the way on my nails and with the next color i created the v-shape and painted up another three fourths and so on. The colors chosen for the design are Wet and Wild Megablast Private Viewing, Haze of love, and Pure Ice Spit Fire. After creating the chevron design I added a nude/light brownish tan pearl on the point of one of the v shapes on every finger and a square jewel on the pointer fingers. I like the design but then I soon realized that it isn't enough color for me. I hope you guys like!!!!!!!! --------------------------peaceout, c.lette p.s. I know I've been a little m.i.a. recently but school just went back so bare with me and my crazy schedule.
