The diamonds are stencils from Kiss. The shiny dots are stickers from Kiss as well!



For Audrey on her own.

Fall Glitter Gradient

on
Thursday, September 27, 2012
Hello lovelies!

Today I have a glitter-heavy manicure to show you. It even has a little bit of hasty fall decoration! :D


I started with a base of Mahogany Magic, sponged on Cruisin' Nude and then put some PSS on in a dabbing method. I dabbed Blonde Bombshell on as well. 

I decided to do a couple of leaves and a spiral. I don't know why…I just did! :D



Below is in the kitchen to show a different lighting view.  


Polishes used:
Nail-Aid Ultra Fast Growth
China Glaze Mahogany Magic 
Cult Nails Cruisin' Nude
Essie LE Cosmopolitan's Practice Safe Sun

Red Kisses/Lips Nails

on
Friday, September 21, 2012
Hi! So...for those of you who like knowing personal information, my boyfriend and I will be celebrating our 2 year "dating" anniversary this weekend! :D I decided to do some cute and lovable nails for the night out. These were inspired by Sarah over at Chalkboard Nails

Now, I went with a bit more scattered idea and threw in two accent nails, just because! 


These lips are all hand painted with a small and very cheap art brush. I think the brush is from Walmart and came in a pack of 20 assorted sizes for $4. 


BRIGHT! 


Look! I even did BOTH hands! :D


Polishes Used:
Nail-Aid Ultra Fast Growth
Cult Nails Cruisin' Nude

Zoya Shawn and 365 Days of Color Darya

on
Thursday, September 20, 2012
Hi! For my first blog post as Demi's Nails, I chose some pretty basic but awesome colors! 

Zoya Shawn is such an awesome deep green. I love it! 




And now for Darya! I think it adds just enough pop without going over the top. 




Zoya Shawn ended up being two coats. 365 Days Darya was a bit gloomy and needed a few coats to get enough glitter. 

Enjoy!

Owner of Voir la Beauté

Hi! If my nails look familiar to you, it's because I started out blogging about nails, it was under the name Voir la Beauté! I still have that blog and Facebook page, but I'm hoping to bring everyone over here.

I wanted to create a blog that was more professional. Demi's Nails is simple and to the point! Plus, people know that Demi (that's me!) is blogging about her nails in the US and it's not someone who is French in a different part of the world. I have my work cut out for me in bringing all of my lovely followers over here, but I know with dedication it will all work out!

Let me know what you think about this transition. If you think it will be too hard, too easy or don't care…it is always nice to know your opinion!

31DC2012 - Day 19: Galaxies

on
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Oooh! I love galaxy nails. However, everyone else seems to do them better than me. When I first started doing my nails again (last August), I tried them and loved the look, but I had horrible nails and cuticles. You can see my old ones here

I'm not satisfied with these, however, they suffice! The glitter is more apparent IRL. :D





Polishes used:
Maybelline Color Show Twilight Rays
China Glaze Pink Voltage
Sation Tardy Tart
Sinful Colors Firefly
Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed
Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor

Tuesday, September 18, 2012
Hello lovelies! Today's mani was a first for me! I had never done a half moon mani up until this morning. I couldn't find hole reinforcers for the LIFE of me, so I had to make do with labeling dots. =/ 

I like the look, but I like it more on longer nails.

31DC2012 - Day 17: Glitter

Hello! I'm finally caught up with blog posts. Woohoo!

I took a little trip to Seattle over the weekend to see some friends and to go to the Puyallup (state) fair! I had such a good time. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the animal pics and the cupcake pictures from hello, cupcake in Tacoma, WA. Mmm. 


A few stores down from hello, cupcake is a store called Purple Peacock. It has an array of gorgeous jewelry and handmade items. One display had butter LONDON. While over priced, I really wanted to try them all because I hadn't had a chance to, EVER. I ended up wanting them all, mostly Snog, Slapper, Trout Pout and The Black Knight. I went with the latter. 

Here are the pics for glitter day! 




It is absolutely stunning. I love it!


Enjoy!
