True Blood Inspired Nails

I'm so super stoked for the season 6 premier next week so I decided to do a True Blood themed nail design. I steered away from the typical vampire fang design, as it has been done quite a bit. This is similar to the Buffy nails I did awhile back. The red I used was a bit finicky, and I think I'll use a different color next time.

(Please ignore the band-aid. I sliced my finger open doing laundry...I still have no idea how it happened)

What I used:

All Nails:
Duri Rejuvacote
Seche Vite Top Coat

French Tips:
China Glaze in Inner Beauty
Stripe Rite in White
Orly French Tips in White Tip
Zoya in Sasha (next time I would use OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress)

True Blood:
Orly in Liquid Vinyl
Migi Nail Art Pen in White and Red

Weekly Nails: White half moon

Once again I was feeling uninspired...and this is what happened. I found some crystals I had had for awhile and decided to use them. It makes me think of ice cream with a cherry on top.

Please comment below on what you would like to see next. I've been very uninspired recently and I'd love some suggestions!

Weekly Nails: Star Trek

Last week I finally got to see Star Trek Into Darkness last weekend. I absolutely LOVED it! Benedict Cumberbatch was phenomenal as per usual, as was Simon Pegg...and well pretty much everyone. It is a very well cast film. I was struggling trying to come up with a design for this week, but after the film it was pretty easy. This is my first take on Star Trek nails.
