Sunset Through the Trees Nail Art!

What is this? Me, regularly posting again? I hope I can keep it up, hahaha. I’m off to a good start so far in the new year!

It has been quite a while since I’ve felt like doing some nail art, my mojo has just not been around as much, but it decided to come back with a vengeance late last night! As a result, I stayed up entirely too late to paint this, but I love how it turned out, sleep be damned.

 
Polishes used: Elevation Polish – Walk a Little Farther, Elevation Polish – Pa’ako(those two were the blue to pale pink gradient for the sky), the rest of the stuff(clouds, sunset bright bit, trees, etc) was all done using acrylic paints.

Cerro Torre Nail Art!

Hi guys! Just a quick nail art post this morning. I used a few of my favorite Elevation Polishes to do some mountains based off of one of the polish namesakes, Cerro Torre!

 

The base polish is Elevation Polish – Pic de Sotllo, the mountains were done with Elevation Polish – Cerro Torre 2, and the shadowy bits of the mountains were a mix of Pic de Sotllo and Cerro Torre 2. The rest of the detail(snow, darker brown bits, black bits) is all acrylic paint.

(this is the actual photo of Cerro Torre that I used as a reference. I got a bit heavy handed with my own snow t hough, so my mountaintops are much snowier, hahaha)

Arrow Nail Art!

The TV show Arrow is easily in my top 3 favorite shows on right now(I don’t think I could choose a favorite between Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time, and Arrow. I LOVE THEM ALL EQUALLY). The new season premiered on Wednesday, and I noticed that the intro screen had a different arrow on it than last time, and I jus thad to do some nail art based on it!

 

Polish used: Elevation Polish – Darkest Safari, accent nail was done with black and white acrylic paints.

Even more Doctor Who nail art!

Wooooooooooooooo! Doctor Who is backkkkkkk! I am very excited if you can’t tell. I quite enjoyed the season premiere, but that is all I’ll say on the subject since I don’t want to spoil it for anyone!

The base polish for this nail art is an upcoming Chaos & Crocodiles polish named Reflections! I’ll have swatches of that and the other two new C&C polishes tomorrow hopefully! The TARDIS accent nail was done with acrylic paints.

Asa-no-ha nail art!

I tooootally forgot to post this one on here last week! I put it on my instagram and then it got left and forgotten about in my to blog folder on my laptop. Whoopsie.  Anywho. I used ladycrappo’s asa-no-ha tutorial for this one! It was tedious but I love how it turned out.

 

Polishes used: Pahlish – Foolish Fire, Pahlish – Lady of Raynham Hall(accent nail), acrylic paint for the turquoise lines(and Foolish Fire was used for the dots on the accent nail)

Loch Ness Monster nail art!

Hi y’all! I finally feel like i’m getting back into my nail art groove, so yay for that. I had been feeling a bit stuck and couldn’t come up with something to do over Pahlish – Ghost Lights, so I asked my friend Molly to give me a suggestion. She said the Loch Ness Monster, and this is what happened!

 

Polishes used: Pahlish – Ghost Lights, acrylic paints.

Sunset at Sea nail art!

Hi guys! Today I’ve got a nail art thing I did with one of the new Elevation Polishes from the upcoming June collection(my post with swatches of all those can be found here). When I first saw the colors in this collection and heard the collection name, I knew I wanted to try out a few different sea/nautical themed nail art ideas. Hopefully I will have another one to show you guys later this week!

 

For this mani, I painted my nails with Elevation Polish – Mount Augustus, and then painted the bottom half of my nails with Ceram Sea from the new collection. The rest of the detail(sun, waves, clouds, etc) was done with acrylic paints.

A Very Neon Starry Night!

Between the names and the colors of the Pahlish duo I posted about yesterday, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that I decided to use them as a base for a neon version of Starry Starry Night.  I painted my nails with Pahlish – Fields of Provence and did an accent nail of Pahlish – Brighter than Sunfloweres. All of the rest was done with neon acrylic paints.
