Pastel Galaxy Nails (with Pictorial)

Hello everybody! Today's post will be quite a short one as I do not have much time to do anything due to my two midterms happening next week. Anyway, here are my nails for he Weekly Nail Art challenge for the week of October 16th.
This light coloured galaxy pattern was chosen over the usual dark coloured designs mainly due to the fact that I have no more black polish. I really do think I need to go on a polish buying spree soon, it's been way too long since I've bought my last bottle of polish and it is not okay at all.
Anyway, keep reading to find a pictorial and instructions on how to achieve these nails!

Damask Nails (with Pictorial)

Hello everybody and sorry about the late blog post! It's been quite a busy week since midterms just started; but I made it through both exams just fine (I hope). Anyways, I finally had a chance to do my nails late last night but I wanted to wait until today to take full advantage of the gorgeous sunlight in order to capture these pictures. Can you believe that no filters, effects or adjustments were added to these pictures? There truly is no lighting better to take photos with than natural lighting.
These nails are the second prompt for the weekly nail art challenge (WNAC2015) with the theme of "damask". I think that my first attempt at damask was pretty successful! The only thing that I would like to change is the amount of glitter I applies to it. In an attempt to make my nails stand out more, I got the idea of adding a glitter top-coat. I then had to balance it out by putting glitter on my accent nails as well, and it just made everything look a bit messy. All is well though, because creating these nails made me super happy and that is all that matters!

Mess-Free Purple Splatter Nails

Hello everyone! The weather here in southern Ontario suddenly got extremely chilly in the past week; and unfortunately I came down with a fever a couple of days ago, so I'm just siting at home trying to recover with countless cups of vanilla chamomile tea. Fortunately, the fever went away within a couple of hours, but as per usual, my body's recovery speed is as slow as a turtle. Earlier this year, I managed to come down with a fever that lasted a good two weeks, hopefully that never happens again. On the bright side, this chilly weather is perfect scarf-wearing weather, and I just love scarves... They keep me so cozy and the fluffy ones make great neck-pillows to sleep on during boring lectures!
For the month of October, I have decided to try my hand at the Weekly Nail Art Challenge again (#WNAC2015). The theme for this week is splatter art, a technique I've never tried before but have always wanted to. Well, long story short, the straw technique did not work at all for me, despite the countless blogs and YouTube tutorials I watched, so I decided to free-hand and draw the splatter on myself. Drawing the splatters on free-hand certainly minimize the mess that would've happened if I had used actually used splatter techniques.
