Leopard Print Nails ExtraVahGaaaahnZa

Ok, so we all know my love of all things leopard. I can't help but keep creating this design for my nails! :-) Here are a few I have worked on...

These are very easy to do it yourself! ( DIY ) I use a dotting tool, but you could use a toothpick, a push pin, or even a bobby pin.

The Blondes Wiggly Eye Nails

I stumbled upon this pic of the The Blonde's 2011 Fashion show. (picture below- Sorry I did not take the url of original source of picture- when I find it I will appropriately link back) This models nails have small white and black wiggly eye balls- you know the ones we ALL make some time of art craft with, when in elementary? I have some lying around in my craft stash and I made these two nail tips with them.

Because these are tips- I used E6000 glue.

Nail Art Designs

For the past....I would say....two weeks I have been totally obsessed with painting nails. (artificial ones bc I have no one around to let me use their nails as I please) Below are some quick shots of some designs I have done- The tools I use vary- dotting tool, thin brushes, regular ole' nail polish, and the thin nail art polishes. Any questions feel free to ask! Interested in tutorials? Let me know and I could work on some...interested in me recreating a look, yup, let me know and I will be more than happy to try it out!

DIY (Do It Yourself) Nail Art Designs.

(From Left to Right) First is a Checker board inspired design. I did this one bc my sis sent me a similar pic and asked if I could recreate it. I might be doing her nails this weekend with this design- will upload pics of it on her if I do. Second is Leopard print- free hand made with a small dotting tool- Purple background with aqua/teal spots. I used Konad Silver glitter top coat to add some sparkle. Third is a glitter green and matte green zebra print with a gold diagonal line. Lastly in the above pic is a simple black nail with pink and gold diagonal lines. 

Leopard print galore! All drawn free hand with my dotting tool. Ice cream cone in the middle. Just for fun. 

Bows and Bows.....I really like making these- what do you think of them? and my continued attempt at the vintagy-victorian floral look.....I haven't mastered it yet but they do look good so far! lol

New iPhone case!

Look what someone got for her birthday! It's so cute, I haven't actually used it outside yet, bc of the ears on the case not being too friendly inside my purse. (more pics below)

I should address that I have been M.I.A. for a while- summers aren't really that intense for me- but I somehow manage to get bombarded and lose track of EVERYTHING! I have a new addiction- Nail art. I have been posting pics of my designs on Instagram and my FB page, but will gradually blog about them here too!

I am stuck at home from a back injury for the next few days and should totally have time to write up a few blogs in the meantime- so stay tuned!

Here are more Rabito Pics...

Until next time! Glitter and Rhinestones.
