RAWR SHOP- Roses, Glitters, and Awesomeness

Hope you're all having a great week so far! Today I have a RAWR Shop mani to show you.
Amanda came for a visit couple of days ago, and this was the outcome.

This is a gel set, we gave her a wee bit of length using Amore International products.
For the art, we used China Glaze's Turned Up Turquoise, Flip Flop Fantasy, and Fairy Dust
I also created a glittery fade using Platinum and Paradise from Michael's

I may or may not have a glitter problem....

Amanda wears colours VERY well. So basically everything looks great on her.
...and roses...everybody loves roses!!

This, I find, is a great way to introduce nail art to those who have yet to experience the awesomeness of it all.
and quite honestly...what girl doesn't like a little bit a lot of glitter?
Well folks, that's all for me today! Hope you enjoy your nails, Amanda!

Have a fantastic day, pretty friends of mine!

Naked Tribal ft. Fundraiser Night!

Hello ladies...and maybe gentlemen??

My nail school had a fundraiser/open house yesterday and we were offering basic polish and nail art!
I wanted to wear something simple on my nails...but things escalated quickly...and next thing you know I ended up with these..... 

This is just acrylic paint with glitter and clear gel polish over top.
I would say that they're rather simple? They just look complicated...hahaha
I find it really hard to look at my nails because they're so short....it's almost awkward not having claws....

...The Fundraiser...

I lucked out last night! All my clients were THANKFULLY all very adventurous!
The sentence "Just do whatever you want!" was thrown around a lot...and that's just how I like it.
This mani was my first and FAVOURITE of the night...

Because I am Winnie. It only made sense that I forget to pack sponges with me...
but this awesome lady requested galaxy and roses on her nails so excitedly, I had to make it happen....
You guys. I did a set of galaxy nails WITHOUT sponges!

I used my fingers to dab on the "galaxy" elements...some of the nails look like EARTH!!

Here are some more manis I did through out the night:

All in all, it was a very fun night. I had a great time, and managed to hand out 2 business cards!

By the way,
I finally found some "above knuckle" rings on ebay....I am in love with them....
Really, they're toe rings....but it's essentially the same thing...and for $2...I'm not complaining! ^_^
Want them? --> HERE you go

Well that's all for me today! 

Have a SUPER DUPER FUN weekend!

MOD POP Nail Art

*pat pat pat*
OMG...I'm alive?! I'M ALIVE!!!! 

I think my trip to LA totally killed me...
If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I managed to make it back with only one nail lifting...I also discovered that if you jam your claw like finger in the door, it hurts a lot....

So I took off my claws in hopes to finally grow out my natural nails...
Well let's just say that it's been 2 weeks with these stubbies....and I feel like....a part of me's gone missing...
I probably give myself another week or so until I put the claws back on....

Now...About this mani...

I picked up Sparitual's Knowledge Is Power a while back...I've been obsessed with it since I brought it home.
I know this design has been done many-a-times by a lot of amazing nail artists out there...But this colour screams pop art to me...I wanted to do something...but not completely cover it?

This way, I can stare at it all the time, and have a constant shine? WIN!
Wearing this mani also makes me feel like a cartoon character...

If Sparitual is available in your area, be sure to pick this colour up for the summer.
You won't regret it.

That's all for me today!
Have a fantabulous day, lovers!
