Creative musings in bright colors

Ok, so I know it’s Star Wars day, and my boyfriend will probably kill me for not posting something Star Wars related…but I just don’t have any right now! So instead I am going to take today to post tons of photos of other people’s nails that I have done over the course of the last 6 months or so. Enjoy!


This is a new appearance! A friend of mine (whose nails I have never touched before) asked me to do her nails for a wedding. She was wearing a purple dress with silver shoes, and the dress had some glitter on the straps. So, here we go!


She wanted a delicate stamp on the tip. I keep forgetting how hard it is to stamp on someone else’s nails! It is so much more difficult to center and know how hard to press down the stamper. Oops!



  • Purple: Sinful Colors – Fig
  • Silver: A England – Excalibur
  • Holo top coat: Wet n’ Wild – Kaleidoscope
  • Stamp: Bundle Monster – 214


A second new appearance: the nails of my boyfriend’s sister. Her favorite color is purple, and she wanted something simple but fun, with one of my sparkliest purples!


All I did was two coats of purple polish, and then some flowy designs in silver. This was very fast, but looked really cute!



  • Purple: LA Girl – Purple Effect
  • Silver: Revlon – (something she owned. I don’t remember the name!)


My sister’s nails return! Unfortunately, I had a limited collection of colors with me when she asked me to do her nails. She wanted a 3-color gradient with lines ands dots. Her initial plan was reds (although I only had two) and I suggested golds (which she thought were too similar), so we settled on black/grey/white.


She was convinced they looked like baseballs! I still think they are cute.



  • Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
  • Grey: NYC – Sidewalkers
  • White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
  • Red: Zoya – Blaze


I have two grad school friends who really like nail art. One is quite good on her own (you saw her nails back in January), the other claims to have no skills but has really good ideas! Friend #2 (idea girl) asked me to do some blue/green themed nails with swirls and a dandelion. Here is what we came up with!


I tried to stamp the swirl pattern from one of my bundle monster plates, but it didn’t work. I went with a different stamp (BM-314) for her accent nail, but the swirls are free-handed.



  • Teal: Zoya – Wednesday
  • Blue: Zoya – Yummy
  • Dark blue: Zoya – Rocky
  • Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black

The dandelion nails were actually quite easy to do! This is free-handed. I might have gone a little overboard with all the wind-blown-ness 😀


Still cute though! (I think I have overused the word ‘cute’ in this post…)



  • Blue: Zoya – Rocky
  • White: Zoya – Purity
  • Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black


My friend who dabbles in nail art did her own nails. She beelined for some of my funnest, sparkiest polishes, and went to town!


She started with a multi chrome, stamped with BM 212, and then added some gold dots. This mani was INCREDIBLY sparkly!



  • Blue multi chrome: ILNP – Birefringence
  • Silver: Color Club – Harp On It
  • Gold: Zoya – Ziv

I had a lot of trouble photographing her other hand, so there is only one photo. Again, glittery goodness! 3ish coats of glitter, a quick drying top coat and a stamp.



  • Gold: Ruby Wing – Strawberry Shortcake
  • Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black


Hope you enjoyed this post! Every now and then I have to round up all the other people’s nails I have sitting in my art folder 🙂
