Winter Wonderland: Snowflake Design!!

Today's manicure is inspired by the not so friendly mounds of snow outside my door. Now, I've always used to like snow. Until I had to shovel through miles of it in order to go anywhere.

But, regardless of that, if anything snow is still beautiful and I still adore it.

Hanging Glequins Ornaments

Merry Christmas Eve Eve!! Since this holiday spirits are inching closer and closer, it should come as no surprise that my designs lately are more Christmasey based. After all, when else can I use and abuse of the red, green and silver?!

Cirque du Soleil Inspired Look - Part 2: Nails!!

Just a quick note before I get ahead with today's post, I just wanted to tell you guys about Algae Veronica's AWESOME end of year giveaway that I've entered. You can find out a lot more about it by clicking here. I'm really excited about it!!

If you haven't heard about her yet, I really recommend you check some of her nail designs out, they're the coolest things ever, and I'm incredibly jealous of her talent!!

But now, post! So after promising this for a while, I've finally gotten around to the Cirque du Soleil inspired nail art that I've been talking about. As you know from my previous post, I went to see Amaluna a couple of days ago, and along with the rainbow makeup I just HAD to create an appropriate nail design too!!

Cirque du Soleil Inspired Look - Part 1: Eyeshadow!!

Hey guys!

So I know it's been a while, but classes are officially over and I'm officially on Holidays!! ...Which of course, implies that I'm mostly free, yet still have to deal with some work-related e-mails at times.

But the good news is that I'm home for Christmas, and I actually have nothing to do but see friends, get fat, and come up with creative ways to update this blog. On that note, here's something I haven't done before, and while I intend this blog to be mainly about nails, every once in a while if I do something I'm proud of, I'll add it here.

I don't recall if I mentioned it or not, but I went to see Amaluna, the Cirque performance, and I decided to get creative with my nails and my makeup! I'll post the nails in a next post, I'm very excited about them, so I'll hold off just a tiiiiiiny bit longer.

Deck the Halls with Glequins and Rhinestones!!


So I've finally reached the point in my holidays where I have enough time to just do nothing but play nails all day, so that's what I've been doing!!

This manicure was inspired by one I did on my friend Jenn at Girl's Night.

The polishes used were China Glaze Running in Circles from the Cirque do Soleil collection, mixed with Winter Holly from the Holiday 2012 collection.

The Hobbit!!

What's this, 2 posts in one day?? Is Lili making up for the fact that she's failed to update this thing?? Why yes indeed!! And also because today I haven't left my house and it's been glorious because I got to catch up on things.

But tonight I'm going to see THE HOBBIT PREMIER!! And I couldn't be more excited about it!!!

In honour of that, I just had to make my nails inspired by it.

Random Girl's Night!

So the Holidays are good for 2 things: Making you poor. And making you suddenly have time for a social life. Which means that Lili has less time for her nails. Which defeats the whole purpose of what I would do with my free time.

That being said, I'm working on one right now, hopefully it will be up by tonight/tomorrow.

Until then, here are some random pics of what happens at Girl's Night!! All the designs are done by yours truly. I'm quite happy with how some came out and might do them to my own nails.

Taylor wanted Galaxy Nails! So that's what I gave her, I can't remember which polishes were used, since some of them weren't mine, but I think it was Sally Hansen, OPI and American Apparel.

Black Velvet Manicure

Right, so I've been pretty bad about updating this, and I'm really sorry about that. I've had a 18 paper due and as you can imagine that is a not a pretty thing to do. But now that's done!

And at the best time as well, I just got a new package from Born Pretty Store!!

Over the next days I'll probably be posting some stuff from there, onto tonight's post: Velvet Nails!!
