Leadlight Flowers

I have seen all this talk about the new technique called Leadlight, so I thought I would try it myself. First of all, leadlight is kind of like stained glass. You can buy polishes for this like OPI Sheer Tints, or you can make them yourself. I made mine myself. You just take a bottle of clear nail polish and add about 20 drops of your desired color of nail polish. Depending on the thickness of the polish, after you mix it up, you should have a nice sheer colored polish. I painted my nails all black and then stamped the flowers with white. Then I added color to the white to give it that pretty colorful tint. What do you think of this technique??

Modern Christmas

This is a more modern Christmas look. I love the hot pink and silver together. 


Hello Kitty wallpaper inspired

This is my next Hello Kitty design...


     I try to get inspiration from almost anything, but this time I was looking at computer wallpapers and I came across this one and remembered I had a stamping plate with this image on it!! Here's my inspiration:

       Here's the plate from My Online Shop


I used a dark grey stamping polish from Ya Qin An and stamped the image right onto a plastic baggie. I colored them in with a fine brush and pastel polishes.


       I  always make extras.... Just in case

 Then I just painted over the whole design when it was all dry with Pink A Card by Sally Hansen.

Hi everyone! I really like how these turned out! The stamping plate is 030 by Qgirl. I sponged on the colors using Purple POP and Pink-y Swear from the Salon Perfect Neon POP colors. Then the blues are Sinful Colors, Endless Blue and Broadway Nails, Waterproof. Hope you like it!!
