French Tip Nails with Fairy Dust

Hello everyone, so slowly and surely I'm coming back. My nails haven't been that fancy lately, but I was quite pleased with how these simple French Nails came out - even had someone ask me if they were acrylics! So I figured I'd share.

Small Hiatus

Hey guys, so I know it's nothing new for me to take a few breaks from posting, and usually it's because I just get super busy. Which is part of the case this time, but also, another part is that I seem to have lost my nail mojo?

I just haven't had the will to paint my nails, it's not even lack of creativity - because I have been doodling out ideas and such, I not in the mood for it lately? I don't know what happened. My nails have been bare (except for base coat) for the past week and a half and even though I look at my polish collection, it's just kinda blah right now. 

Anyways, I just wanted to explain that and hope that my nail mojo comes back soon!! I do miss it, and as soon as it comes back, you'll be the first to know. In the mean time, keep on Polishing It Up!

Jan Nail Art Challenge: Butterfly Nails!!

So once again I'm behind on the Nail Art Challenge, mostly because it's been a pretty tough week and I had to take some time off. Also, I had to file down my nails a bit, but carrying on. The challenges were GRADIENT and NATURE, so I decided to do a 2-in-1 with these Butterfly Nails!!

Jan Nail Art Challenge: Dotticure Blue

I know, I know, I'm late to the Jan Nail Art Challenge, this was supposed to have gone up on the 11th, but this weekend I was in the middle of nowhere with my co-workers. We stayed in a cabin and played a bunch of boardgames, it was fun. Anyways, the theme was PASTEL BLUE and this was my take.

Jan Nail Art Challenge: Leopard Print & Studs

Today's nail challenge theme is PATTERN and I'm really glad, because ever since I saw this picture on the Laquerista thread on reddit I've been wanting to give it a try! I've given it my own twist, but mostly I'm just really excited because this is my first time doing leopard prints!!

Jan Nail Art Challenge: French Nail Glitter Art

Continuing on with my January Nail Art Challenge, I actually got around to posting this one on the right day (as I hope to do with the rest). Today's theme was SPARKLES. 

And what's more sparkly than Glitter?! Now, as most Laqueristas, I have a love/hate relationship with glitter. SUPER SHINY, but at the same time, the pain that they are to take off sometimes - most times - leads me to wonder if it's really worth it. Thinking of that, is what led me to decide on this particular nail art, a semi french nail glitter look.

Jan Nail Art Challenge: Holo with Fuzzy Accent

Hey guys, today's post was supposed to be a Weekly Quickly, but I wanted to share this really cool Nail Art challenge that I'm doing on Instagram (follow me there, I'm liliofthevaley). I've always wanted to do a monthly Nail Art challenge like I see happening here every once in a while, but sometimes I have no time to do new nail art every day . So I'm really glad when I came across this one!! 

Today's nail art I'm actually late to posting it on here, but it's FRESH and I decided to go with this mix of holographic with a very simple accent nail. Very basic, very fresh.
