Avengers - Hulk Manicure

By cristalena56 · May 5, 2012

When I was swatching my Kleancolor mini polishes a couple days ago i saw that their was some good colors for Avengers Manicures. I dont know if i will do more but i did a Hulk one. The lighting in my apt is awful so sorry about the quality of pics. The signature on the DVD below is Stan Lee. We got his autograph a couple years ago at the annual Phoenix Comicon.


Items Used:

*Metallic Green, Fuschia, and Black

*Migi Nails Green, Black, and White

*Seche Vite Base and Top Coat (When i removed the swatches i found some staining with a couple of the colors.)

*Some green nail glitter i got in a set from the dollar tree

*Nail brush i got from my Crown Brush Haul

I should have done some clean up after i was finished, sorry.

*I started by applying Seche Vite Base Coat.

*Applied one coat of Kleancolor Metallic Green.

*Went over with Seche Vite Top Coat (im impatient)

*Next I took the black Migi Nail Pen and drew an outline of Hulk Hair at the top of each nail.

*Filled in the tops with Metallic Fuschia on every finger but the thumb.

*Filled the top of thumb with Metallic Black.

*Seche Vite Top Coat

*Next i took my nail brush and dipped it into my Migi Nail Black and drew on hulk face.

*Used Migi Nails Black and White for Teeth.

*Using Migi Nails Green I spelled out the Hulk on my other Fingers.

*Took a brush and applied Green Glitter over letters.

*Traced the Letters back over with Migi Nails Green. (I messed up the letter H when i did this :/)

*Let dry for a minute or 2.

*Applied Seche Vite Top Coat

Super Vivid Setting

Fisheye Setting

miniature setting

Toy Camera Setting

Monochrome Setting

Posterized Effect Setting


I decided to play with some of the settings trying to see if I could the letters to show up better. My flash always gets in the picture when i take pics of my nails.

This mani can go with my Hulk 1 and Hulk 2 Make Up Looks.

Mardi Gras Manicure

By cristalena56 · February 9, 2012

Going to a Mardi Gras themed bridal shower on saturday. I wanted to repaint my nails today and one of my new polishes from my secret cupid seemed like a perfect MG purple. The name Flying Dragon, seemed to go along with the theme as well. Im not the greatest at nail art but i tried lol This wasnt that hard to do.

Colors Used:

*Wet n Wild Sagreena the Teenage Witch

*Color Club Sugar Plum Yum(scented!!)

*Color Club Gingerbread

*China Glaze Neon Flying Dragon

*Migi Nail Art Manicure Pen
in Black and Blue(Not Pictured)

*Seche Vite Top Coat(Not Pictured)

*First I applied a base coat(Beauty Secrets from Sally's)

*Next I put nail guide stickers on the middle of each nail going diagonally.

*Then I painted one side with Sagreena and the other with Flying Dragon.

*I took the nail guide off to see which color i needed to add more. Then i painted in the bare spot.

*Im impatient with drying so i added one thin coat of Seche Vite.

*Next I applied Gingerbread to the tips of my fingers.

*I then went over it with Sugar Plum, Yum.

*I found it didnt cover all the green and purple underneath so i applied Gingerbread yet again to be more opaque.

*Next I drew a line with the black migi nail art pen under the glitter. (drawing with my left hand wasnt the greatest, sorry :()

*Applied Seche Vite so lines wouldnt smear(though i accidentally smeared my thumb and middle finger :/)

*Next I drew a little mask on my thumb with the Migi Nail Art Pens in Black, Blue, and Yellow

*applied seche vite

I have a hurt finger :( keep stabbing it at work when reaching in my bucket for a pin to hard tag clothes.

I took a better pic of Color Club Gingerbread so you can see all the sparkly goodness.

Chrome Zebra Mani

By cristalena56 · October 2, 2011

So i was watching a youtube video someone posted on tpf on a lisa frank zebra mani and decided to try out a sponging manicure for the first time. I found the process to be kind of messy lol

Materials Used:

*Opi Lincoln Park After Dark

*Color Club Foiled Collection

*Konad Special Polish in Black

*Seche Vite Top Coat

*Beauty Secrets Base Coat(couldnt find my new seche vite one :/)

*Make Up Sponge

*Konad Stamper and Scraper

*Bundle Monster Plate 16


*Cotton Balls


No Flash

I'll take a sunlight pics tomorrow. :)

*First I applied Beauty Secrets Base Coat on my nails.

*Then after base is dried i applied one coat of Opi Lincoln Park After Dark on each nail.

*Im impatient so i applied seche vite on top.

*Once dry starting with one corner of the sponge i dabbed Hot Like Lava on it and then sponged it on the right lower corner of each nail. Don't worry if you get it past your nail, just use a qtip and np remover to wipe it away at the end.

*Using the opposite corner of sponge i dabbed on Cold Metal and sponged it on the Right Upper Corner.

*I turned the sponge over and dabbed Perfect Mol-ten and sponged it on the lower left corner of my nails.

*On the opposite corner i dabbed Foil Me Once and sponged on the upper left corner of my nails.

*Then I dabbed Lumin-icecent on a corner of the sponge and dabbed it in the middle of my nails.

* I then allowed them to dry(about 2 or 3 minutes).

*I then took the konad black and stamped the Zebra Print from plate BM16 on each of my nails. The stamp isnt big enough to cover a few of the nails, so i apply the black over half the print and then stamp it on the remainder of the nail.

*Then i wait a minute before applying the top coat to make sure the black doesnt smear.

*Then after top coat dries, dip a qtip in some nail polish remover and clean up around the nails. My hands have been extra dry from the hot weather we have been having forever and its hard for me to remove. I need to go over them again now that i allowed my nails to dry longer.
