Beetle Bailey

I remember love getting the sunday comics, especially the colorful ones. And since I was an Army brat (that hardly traveled) I wanted to do Beetle Bailey. What is your favorite comic?

For my base I used Sally Hansen's Insta-Dry in Lightening.

Neon Fun

Hmm, I don't know what I was trying to achieve with this one, but it was quick for me. I used a white base and kind of did a neon gradient, then drew some black outlines and checkers all with acrylic paint.

What do you think? Would you rock these, or do they look too busy?

How to Make S'mores

S'mores is my family's summer favorite. Although we may not warm our marshmallows over a fire, my kids can make them anytime with the microwave. Go figure. Regardless, it is still yummy. So in my mind, I had to do me some s'mores nails. You need all the ingredients pictures and then you put them together and enjoy.

The colors I used were, Revlon's Hot For Chocolate on the pinky, Sinful Color's Rainstorm for the dark blue, Color Club (a no namer from Ross) for the light blue, and Maybelline's ColorShow in Bare Escape for the pointer. The rest is acrylic paint.

I am loving all the nautical things on nails. But honestly, I really can't wait until fall/winter colors for nail polish comes out. I was not really impressed with the nail collection releases this summer. Did you? I am just looking forward to a change.

But here is my nails, and I used SC Shine in Wisp and blue acrylic paint.

A Night In the Egyptian Desert

I think I like making up titles for my blogs besides doing my nails.

I did this one because of the gradient and it was fun to draw. I am going to enter these in a contest, too. Do you see the sun in between the palm trees.

I used SC's in Olympia, Unicorn, and Hazard for the sky portion. And then I used Revlon's Trade Winds for the sand, the rest is acrylic paint.

There is nothing like a hot summer day than enjoying some popsicles. I live in Arizona, so it gets hot here, no ice cream truck though, it would probably melt, lol. But I have memories of the delicious popsicles I had when I was younger. Do you remember the bubble gum popsicle?

I used Essie's French Affair for the bubble gum pink, Sinful Shine's Wisp for the white, and acrylic paint for the popsicles.

What is your favorite popsicle?
