Hey guys!  I have another nail design I want to share. This one is (so far) my favorite manicure I have done. It's nearing the end of summer (boohoo!) and I wanted to do something that would lift my spirits a bit and a sunflower nail design was the answer. I got the inspiration from a pin on Pinterest that linked back to an incredible nail blogger by the name of TheNailNerd. And holy shit... is she fabulous! 

I wanted to veer away from my usual water marble manicure, and practice on my freehand. Drawing has never a strong suit for me and I figure with practice I'll get better. It was nice to jump out of my comfort zone and try something different so I'll be taking a break from the marbling for the time being.

A funny thing happened to me while I was out in public wearing this manicure. I happen to be shopping at a beauty supply store at my local mall and as I was getting ready to make my purchase (I bought ChG 'Towel Boy Toy and ChG 'Fast Track'. I am wearing TBT at the moment and it is stunning.) and the cashier asked to see my nails and asked if I did them myself. I told her yes and she asked if she could take a picture. Of course she could! I was so flattered. She is now following me on Instagram and that just totally made my day. Not to mention, she let me have an OPI mini polish for FREE too! What an awesome experience that was.

 Here is my YT video on how I did these nails! Enjoy!

Until next time!

Polish Used:
ChG 'Electric Beat'
Color Club 'Almost Famous'
Sinful 'Nirvana'
Black & White acrylic paints.

Hi guys! I feel like I am so behind on my blog. Like, I'll scroll through pictures on my computer of recent manicures I've worn and realize that there's like five that I haven't posted on my blog! I think Instagram is partially to blame. Raise your hand if you've become an Instagram addict! *raises BOTH hands*. As I've stated before, I basically change my manicure daily.. sometimes like today, I'll change them twice in one day. It's become easier for me to grab my phone, take a picture and upload it straight to Instagram than to grab my camera, take a picuture, upload it to my computer, resize, watermark.. blah blah blah. I guess what I am saying is, if you want to see EVERY manicure I am wearing, stalk my Instagram (search MoDiddie). I still will be posting here, but I hate feeling stressed that not EVERY SINGLE manicure I've worn and taken a picture of is on my blog. I'll just post my favorite manicures here on my blog.

Like this one. Ha, like that sweet transition? :D Because the 4th of July is this week (Wednesday), I thought, "What better way to start the week than with this patriotic American flag manicure?!" I posted this tutorial on YouTube (the video will be posted at the bottom of this page) a couple days ago and I have recieved so much positive feedback on it. I know not everyone on here follows my YouTube so I wanted to share this manicure with my blog friends as well! So here they are! 

I just LOVE these! I wore these out and about and people literally stopped me. One lady actually just grabbed my arm! HAHA! They look like they could be semi difficult to do, but honestly they're really simple. If you want to see exactly how I did them, check out the video below. :D

If you guys try this design out, I'd love to see your rendition of it. Happy Independance Day to my fellow American followers! I hope you guys enjoy this nail art design and I will catch you guys later!
