Crumpet's Nail Tarts Presents ~ 26 Nail Art Ideas ~ My Signature Style

Howdy Dahlings!

Alas, this is the last prompt of
The Crumpet's Nail Tarts 2016-17 nail art challenge.
Debbie Crumpet has moved on to other adventures,
so the group is pondering starting a new group
with a new year long challenge.
Stay tuned nail art fans, I'll let you know what's what when I know.

On to the nails!

Looking back over my manis of the last year,
methinks it's safe to assume I like pink, purple & blue polishes,
cats & skulls/skeletons done with nail stamping plus holo blinginess.

For this one I used:
This is a pink when warm, purple when cool thermal
with small blue & scattered holo bits.
I stamped using:

Oh wait! Did I forget to mention my most signature nail move...

 You had to know by now that the odds
of my nails glowing in the dark were pretty high!
Yes, Unicorn is a pretty thermal polish by day
& an awesome glow in the dark polish at night!

My thumb says it all.

Gimme Unicorn claws, Meowmy!

CNT Presents ~ 26 Great Nail Art Ideas ~ Dotting Tools, But Not Just Dots

Hello Dahlings!

Can you believe we're down to the last 3 prompts?
Where the hell as the year gone?
Anywho, for this round we're doing dotting tools,
but not just dots.
I did this...

 Where are the dots?
I didn't make any.
I use my dotters most often
to color in stamped DIY decals
or reverse stamping.
I find it easier than using a tiny brush.

 Cotton Granny Panties franken undies
Nabi Rose Pink #23, Fuchsia #06* & Sky Blue #16
Not Shown ~

*I had a fading issue with both
the Nabi Fuchsia #06 used in this mani
& the Princessa #540-08 neon purple I used last time.
They applied normally, but within a few days
started fading in a rather tie dyed manner. 
I don't know if this was due to sun exposure
(they didn't do this in the past)
or the pigment breaking down with age.
I've had the Nabi gitds for almost 5 years
& the Princessas for over 4 years.
The other colors used didn't have this issue,
but I thought y'all should be aware that this happened.

 They still glowed mighty fine!
