26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Love (but no pink or red)

Hey there!  Since it was Valentine's Day earlier this week, today's 26 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge was to do a love-themed mani but there was a twist.  No pink or red!  I have to admit that I do immediately think of pink and red when I think Valentine's so I liked this prompt.  But I did just realize that lots of my V-Day manis this year had different colors.  Yay me!

My Recent Valentine's Day Nail Stamping

Hey there!  Happy Valentine's Day to all the lovely folks out there!  I'm a single lady so I'm not celebrating, except to go out for beer and wings with one of my friends right away.  But I wanted to stop in and quickly post the Valentine's Day nail art I've been wearing over the last week or so, including my current mani (the first one I'm posting here).  It also happens to be the Nail Challenge Collaborative's Love month so there should be lots of love-themed mani in the links at the end of this for you to browse.  If you're curious about any of the products I used for mine, it's all down below.

Beauty Bigbang Nail Product Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I have a quick review of a few nail art products from Beauty Bigbang.  If you haven't heard of them, they're a beauty company from overseas that carries a huge variety of products at really low prices.  Personally I've only tried the nail art products so I can't speak for it all but the nail art items are certainly worth the cost.  Shipping seems to take about 3-4 weeks which is much quicker than other companies I have ordered from.  Today I have some chameleon flakies, black chrome powder, a dual-ended gradient sponge tool and a stamping plate so it's a pretty varied post today.  I really enjoyed all of them and would happily recommend them all.  If you're interested in these or other Beauty Bigbang products, use the code "CLAWS" to receive 10% off your order.

Nail Crazies Unite - Anti-Valentine's Hearts

Hey there!  Since Valentine's Day is coming up but not everyone is necessarily fond of the day, the Nail Crazies Unite theme today is Anti Valentine's Hearts.  I wasn't actually sure how to combine hearts with the "anti" part of the prompt but black splatter always does the trick, right!  Since I've been loving bright colours lately, to stave off the winter dreariness, I did the hearts in a brightly-colored gradient.  It's actually a bit tough to see that they were hearts but they really were.

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Black and Neon

Hey there!  Today's prompt for the 26 Great Nail Art Ideas prompt is Neon and Black, a combination I always love.  I used it as an opportunity to copycat a mani I saw last year that I fell in love with from Sam H Nails (now @samhnails2.0 on Instagram after some jerk hacked her account).  The combination of skulls with the cheery neon colors is awesome, isn't it?  And for once my camera decided to actually show some of the brightness that this mani had in real life (which for my camera is a small miracle)!

My Mani Box Subscription Box from Beautometry Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  I have something new on my blog today!  My Mani Box is a subscription box from Beautometry which I think is a great idea.  Personally I'm a giant fan of grab bags of all sorts and this is sort of a grab bag for nail art!  Every month has a new theme.  I received December's box which was themed Kiss Me At Midnight (presumably to ring in the new year).  In my box was two MoYou London plates (you get to pick your size, regular or XL), a Ms Sparkle polish, Ribbits Stickits water decals and stencils and a Beautometry nail file.  I put use to all of them as you'll see.

The Digit-al Dozen does Birthdays - January 2018

Hey there!  Holy I am cutting it close to wishing my lovely friends Courtney and Brethil the happiest of birthdays.  But, if it counts for anything, I had a drink after work for you guys for your birthday instead of writing my blog post (bad blogger!).  To celebrate their birthdays they have chosen a very unique inspiration photo.  I don't think I've ever seen one with such different results.  It's fun!  Keep on reading to see their photo choice.
