my friends like nails, too

Hey guys, another late night post from me, but not quite as late this time.
I just have so many things to post that I feel like doing multiple per day.

Between last night's swatching session and the one I had today, I swatched 24 polishes. Ridiculous. If only that made a big dent in my stash...
I'm really into this swatch project thing.
I have sorry cuticles now, but I enjoyed it. I'm trying to do everything I own by a brand at once. So I'm starting with smaller sets of things I have, like L.A. Colors and Revlon. I'll be posting them in sets I guess!

Anyway, so because I have so many things to post, I wanted to show you guys 2 sets of nails I did for my friends this past week!

I did my friend Nicole's nails on Sunday.

Thumbs up for cupcakes!

Cupcakes and leopard print! Enlarge the photo to see it better.
The colors I used on Nicole's manicure were Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Brisk Blue, Presto Pink, and Whirlwind White. The cupcake detailling was done by mixing the colors with white.
I did the leopard with my black nail art pen.
Add bullion beads for sprinkles and a red rhinestone as the cherry on top! :)

Tonight, my bestie/soulmate Emma and I went to The Hangover 2 with our new friend Nina! It was pretty awesome. Not quite as good as the first but still hilarious.
Before the movie, I did Emma's nails.
She was already wearing a For Audrey dupe and we made it much better!

Enlarge the photo to see all the awesome!

I have nothing better to do so I'll tell you what I did on all her fingers.

Her thumbs consist of one cupcake, done the same way as Nicole's, and a floral nail!
Her index fingers are plain but use cool polishes - China Glaze Senorita Bonita with Hidden Treasure layered over it (which looked super cool in low light but I didn't get a photo) and Milani 3D Cyberspace over her For Audrey dupe
Her middle fingers have cute lacey/finial/whatever patterns from the new BM plates. OPI - Dim Sum Plum is the pink.
Her ring fingers? Milani Jewel FX in Silver and For Audrey dupe with OPI - Last Friday night layered on top.
One pinky is a fishtail with the F.A. dupe, Dim Sum Plum, and Milani Nail Art in Purple Outline.
Her other pinky is special - a black cat in memory of Emma's cat, Miss Puss! From the original BM set.
(Black stamping was done with Wet N Wild Black Creme, of course.)

Emma loves everything so we did everything. Haha.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my art on other people's nails for a change! Nighty night.
