Is It Summer Yet?

WOW It's been forever!
I hope you've all been super. Apologies for the lack of presence, but know that I think of you everyday!

Now...I don't know about you, but I have HAD IT with this wishy washy Sprinter weather! So today I have a mumbo jumbo spring/summer mani for you, in hopes that the sun would finally come out to play! Now we all know my love for obnoxious things, and this mani is all that and MOAR! and omg both hands!

I gave myself clear claws. I lasted 5 weeks with the nubs, be proud of me everybody! Now I just have to re-learn how to do everything...hahaha!
All the details here you see are done with Acrylic paint and sealed with a gel top coat. I also encapsulated some micro beads, and studs in the clear tips...not sure if it's visible.

That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed today's mani.

Have the MOST wonderful day, my loves!

Mara Hoffman Inspired- Black/Gold

Yes it's true. I got nubs again.
Trust that before I finally ended up with this shape, I had squares > rounds > back to square > squovals > round....and now I have this almondy shape looking thing. lol

It's been 2 weeks since we last saw each other. What's new guys?! 
Today I have this Mara Hoffman inspired mani for you. I want pretty much one (or maybe 7) of everything of hers. I drew inspiration from this dress, particularly the black spikes.

I decided not to incorporate any colours into this mani because I love me some black/gold/nude combo!
I used black acrylic paint and a gold striper polish.

For the ring finger, I added this awesome stud. 
You guys, I feel really special with this stud, because hardcore fierce!
As for the thumb- I wanted it to be more detailed because it's the most space I get on these nubs.
Here's a closer look:

Then I sealed the mani with my new favourite topcoat:

That's all for me today!! I hope you enjoyed this mani as much as I did doing it ^_^

Have an awesome weekend, my loves!
