Shark Happens

Today, ladies and gentlemen, is a day that will make history. Okay, so maybe that's a bit of a stretch, but another movie about sharks that get sucked into a tornado gets released today. Yup. It's time for Sharknado 2: The Second One. It's cinematic gold. And to mark this absolutely historic event, I painted my nails. Obviously. ;)



The base for all my nails is Black Taxi from Nails Inc. I then applied Yoga-Ta Get This Blue from OPI on top. Then, with very little polish on the brush, I randomly applied Frostbite from China Glaze and Dreamer from Revlon towards the tips of my nails. I painted the shark on my ring finger with red, black and white acrylic. The writing on my pointer finger is white acrylic.

I hope you guys enjoy. And also, beware of tornadoes filled with sharks, and remember guys; Shark Happens. ;)

Gotta Catch 'Em All!

If the title didn't give it away, this weeks manicure is Pokémon inspired. Now I don't know about you guys, but I was definitely a Pokémon fan when I was younger. I didn't actually know how to play with the cards, but I watched the show and played the video game on my brother's old Game Boy. 


On my pinkie, I painted Squirtle. I started with a base of Club Privé from L'Oréal, then added the detail with acrylics. My ring finger is a Pokéball. The base is Sure Thing and Revlon Red from Revlon. Then I painted the rest of the Pokéball with white and black acrylic. My middle finger is Charizard, with a base of Sunkissed from Sally Hansen and details in acrylic. Finally, my pointer finger is Bulbasaur, with a base of Mermaid's Tears from OPI and acrylic detail. My thumb was another Pokéball. 

I'm super happy with how this manicure turned out! Definitely brings me back to second grade when I was given my first Pokémon card. I was always a huge fan of Ponyta (mainly because I had a horse obsession). What was your favourite Pokémon? Let me know!

Hope you guys enjoy!

"Eye" See You

This nail design was just something quick I had done in between the Tangled and Warped Tour manicures.



The base on my pinkie and middle finger is Black Taxi from Nails Inc. On my ring finger I used Sure Thing from Revlon as a base, then painted on Hey Girl! from Quo, Lightening from Sally Hansen, Let's Get Lost from Essence and Black Taxi on randomly. On my middle finger, I painted an eye using black, white and blue acrylic. Finally, using a base of Sure Thing and a black striper, I created a checker board pattern. 

Hope you guys enjoy!

I'm Weird

On Friday I went to Warped Tour 2014. For those of you who don't know, Warped Tour is a huge music festival that is now international. There are over 100 bands and artists on the tour, so there's something for everyone to enjoy. It was my first time going to Warped Tour and it was an amazing experience. Here are my nails for the occasion.


My pinkie is a base of Black Taxi from Nails Inc. Then I sponged on Frostbite from China Glaze, Plum Seduction from Revlon, Back In My Gloria Days from Nicole By OPI and Let's Get Lost from Essence to create a galaxy. Finally, I added some stars with white acrylic. My ring finger is the Journeys logo, with a base of Black Taxi painted in white acrylic. My middle finger is part of the illustration for the Ghost Town song Monster. The base is High Line Green from NYC, and the rest is acrylic. On my pointer finger, I started with a base of Black Taxi, then sponged on French Quarter for Your Thoughts and Ski Slop Sweetie, both from OPI. I added stars and "I'm Weird" which is a new song from Ghost Town. Finally, my thumb is the Vans logo. The base is Black Taxi and the lettering is acrylic. 


Conor from Ice Nine Kills. 


And Bertrand from Chunk! No Captain Chunk! 

Warped Tour was definitely fun! And it was great to see some awesome bands! 

Hope you guys enjoy!

*UPDATE*


This is a tour vlog from Ghost Town. If you watch from about 1:05, you'll see me showing off my nails at the Toronto Warped Tour show!

Also, Warped Tour posted my nails on their Instagram!
