Ben de la Creme Inspired Nails

Hello everyone!

Today I have a nail art design inspired by one of my favorite shows: RuPaul's Drag Race! It's one of the few shows that I actually try to catch up on and I've been watching it ever since it came on. Plus, it's kind of good to post it now since there's going to be a double episodes tonight lol.

RuPaul's Drag Race is in it's sixth season, and I was inspired by one of the queen's outfits from the last episode. Her name is Ben de la Creme and she's one of my favorites this season. She's really talented and gorgeous and I loved this snow leopard print outfit she was wearing in this episode. It's probably one of my favorite runway looks ever.

Anyways, let's get to the nails!

For these nails, I used Sinful Colors Sweet Nothing for the pointer and pinky fingers. For the middle and ring, I used an unnamed silver glitter by Color Club.

Next, I created leopard print spots with a dotting tool using Sinful Colors Slate and Snow Me White. Using a detail brush, I outlined the spots with Sinful Colors Black on Black.

Finally, I finished off with a top coat.

These were very fun and simple to do. I couldn't think of anything to go on the blue, so they do look a little plain. I still love them though. The season will be over soon-ish, but maybe if I'm inspired, I'll do some more nail art inspired by some of the other queens!

Thanks for reading!

Galaxy Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some nail art for you! This was actually going to be more than just galaxy nails, they were going to be galaxy cat nails. Unfortunately, the idea didn't really work out so I just stuck with doing just the galaxy. I'll probably try to do it again because who doesn't like galaxy cats lol.

Although I will say that it's a first for me doing a dark galaxy nail. I really like them, so let's check them out!

For these nails, I used Sinful Colors Black on Black as the base color. For the colors of the galaxy I used Sinful Colors Rise and Shine, Snow Me White, Cream Pink, and Amethyst, an unnamed Color Club polish, and China Glaze Fairy Dust. 

I used the same method as my other galaxy nails that I did during the 31 Day Challenge. Instead of using a makeup sponge, I used q-tips instead. I feel like the q-tips gave it more of a galaxy feel than with using a sponge.

Even though this is my second time doing galaxy nails, I really like these. You really can't mess up galaxy nails and they're so simple to do. I'm going to try doing those galaxy cat nails though even if they will look like crap lol. 

What do you think of these nails? Do you prefer dark or light galaxy nails?

Thanks for reading!
