Tie-Dye Acrylic Paint Nail Art!

Press Sample, Affiliate Link

Hey Everyone!

I've never tried a "tie-dye" nail look before so I was really excited to give these a go!  I had these planned to go with my outfit I wore to a 60s themed charity event, I went as a Flower Child BUT you know how life is... It gets in the way of all your fun!  So I just did them after the event and kept the mood going.

Here is my full length tutorial for how I got this look.

Sharpie Spring Watercolor Nails YouTube Tutorial!

Press Sample, Affiliate Link

Hi Everyone!

Ok.  I'm just gonna say it.  I'm totally addicted to Sharpie manis lol If it were up to me, I'd do a Sharpie mani every ding dong DAY lol!  But I've been stopping myself because seriously, I need to switch it up.  I was feeling like I was in a Spring mood, so I went with some Spring colors and I was so happy with how this came out.  Check out my full length tutorial on YouTube!




Sharpie Spring Watercolor Nails China Glaze In A Lily Bit Twinkled T Vinyls

Sharpie Spring Watercolor Nails China Glaze In A Lily Bit Twinkled T Vinyls


This is one of my fav manis that I've ever done!  I'm such a purple fan so combined with the sharpies and vinyls... head = blown haha!

Here is what I used:

- China Glaze White on White - http://www.bit.ly/1QWphx7 ^
- China Glaze In A Lily Bit - http://www.bit.ly/1oT342p ^
- China Glaze Fairy Dust - http://www.bit.ly/1p2Ht6r ^
- Sharpies - http://www.bit.ly/1QWq18i ^
- 91% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol - Any drugstore
- Wax Paper - Any grocery store
- Twinkled T Brush from the Cotton Dandy Nail Art Set - http://www.bit.ly/1RFxBJH ^ *
- Twinkled T #2 Clean-up Brush - http://www.bit.ly/1RFxBJH ^ *
- Twinkled T Square Cyclone Vinyls - http://www.bit.ly/1RFxBJH ^ *
- Square 2mm Nail Jewels - eBay
- HK Girl Top Coat - http://glistenandglow.bigcartel.com/product/hk-girl-fast-drying-super-shiny-top-coat

And totally random, but this mani was completed when my nails were at my fav length.  They only stay my "perfect" length for a couple of days and I'm too lazy to file them a couple times per week haha  I think my nails grow fast but no that fast.  It's so weird how such a minuscule amount of growth can make such a big difference in nail appearance.  Or maybe I'm just crazy, totally possible!

Thank you for checking out my mani!

Coach Holo Purse Inspired Rainbow Gradient - with a YouTube Tutorial!

Press Sample, Affiliate Code

Hey Everyone!

What came first?  The holographic purse or the holo polish?

A couple weeks back I got an email from the Coach Outlet showing some new holo leather items that were about to release..... I was like whaaatttttttttt!  Purses are some of my fav things in the whole world so when the nail world combines with purse, I'm there.  They were only launching in the outlet so I ran to get them that weekend.  I'm glad I did because I got some of the last items and they sold out rather quickly.  They were rumored to be eventually available on the online site but so far no luck.  I really hope they show up because I definitely want to pick up some of the other matching items and I want my fellow polish friends to have a crack at them too!

Of course I was inspired to do a matching mani!




I went with my indies because HOLOOOOOOOOO lol

Here is what I used:

- Bundle Monster Buy Me Diamonds * ^ Use code TWISTAR for 10% off!
- Glisten & Glow Clubbin’ Teal Dawn - Limited Edition no longer available :(
- Bundle Monster Noir Black * ^ Use code TWISTAR for 10% off!
- Bundle Monster Stamp Plate BM-S105 * ^ Use code TWISTAR for 10% off!

Would you guys buy a holo purse?  I'm still obsessing over this purse and it's become my weekend purse.  I plan on using it a lot in the Summer!

I'm on YouTube! My First Tutorial! The Walking Dead Zombie Inspired Nail Art

Press Sample, Affiliate Link

Hey Everyone!

After much planning and sleepless nights of editing, I finally got my very first full length YouTube tutorial up!  I wanted my first tutorial to represent me and the things I love so I went with a Walking Dead theme because it's my fav show, neons, and nail stamping.  All things I love!




I've been doing instagram tutorials for about a year and a half and for the past 6 months or so I've been debating starting an accompaning YouTube channel.  I knew it would be a lot of work and the idea of putting my "voice" out there kind of terrified me, but then the annoyance at only having 15 seconds to show what I filmed kind of trumped my fear lol  So I jumped in!  And so far it has been very rewarding... and A LOT of work!  This first tutorial probably took me about 20 hrs total to film and edit.  OH.  MY.  That included a lot of learning on the fly though, editing a full length tutorial and doing voiceover is a completely different beast.  I have since completed 2 other full length tutorials (I will post them sometime soon on my blog lol) and I've gotten faster each time.

Anyways!  Here is a still shot of my mani!


Also, I think I want to make the size of my pics smaller like the one above.  I've previously posted them very large but I dunno, it's been annoying me lately.  Let me know how you feel!  LOL

Here is what I used to complete this mani:

- China Glaze White on White - http://www.bit.ly/1QWphx7 ^
- Rica Polish White Out - http://www.bit.ly/21idyW8
- Orly Thrill Seeker - http://www.orlybeauty.com/thrill-seeker.html
- Orly Keylime Twist - http://www.orlybeauty.com/key-lime-twist.html
- Painted Polish Midnight Mischief - http://www.paintedpolish.com/product/midnight-mischief (Currently sold out but will be back!)
- Bliss Kiss Simply Peel Liquid Latex - http://www.bit.ly/1Qzl0oe ^
- UberChic XL Non-sticky Stamper - http://www.twinkledt.com/#_l_1d *
- UberChic Zombie Love stamping plate - http://www.twinkledt.com/#_l_1d *
- Sharpies - http://www.bit.ly/1QWq18i ^
- 91% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol - Drugstore
- UberChic Liner Brush - http://www.twinkledt.com/#_l_1d *
- Ulta Cosmetics Sponge - http://www.twinkledt.com/#_l_1d *

Neon Sharpie Heart Stamping Nail Art

Press Sample,  Affiliate Code

Hey Everyone!

I've been seriously in love with Sharpie manis lately, and I just can't stop lol I love the brightness, how easy they are, and they're just in yo face!  LOVE This was also the second time I tried out the Clear Jelly Stamper that was sent to me for review, and I'm digging it.  Who knew placement could be so damn easy?

Let's get to it.

A video posted by Angel πŸ˜‡ (@twi_star) on


Black Sharpie Heart Stamping

Black Sharpie Heart Stamping

I'm all about dat base, dat base...ok old irrelevant joke lol Painted Polish Midnight Mischief has quickly become my fav black base and black stamping polish fo real.  If you are a thick coat painter this is definitely a 1 coater and is crazy opaque for stamping.  I love how with the Clear Jelly Stamper I could really get the composition of those hearts!

To paint with the sharpies, I draw with them onto wax paper and then using 91% Rubbing alcohol aka isopropyl with a brush you can pick up the marker from the wax paper and apply to the nail.  So fun!

Here's what I used for this mani:

-Black - Painted Polish Midnight Mischief
-White - Rica Polish White Out
-Sharpies and 91% rubbing alcohol
-Bursh - Twinkled T Cotton Dandy Brush set - Use code TWISTAR for 10% off!
-Stamp plate - Clear Jelly Stamper CJS V-02
-Stamper - Clear Jelly Stamper
-Top coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat

Have you tried using sharpies for nail art?

Thanks for stopping by!
Angel
