Well, the February Nail Artist of the Month is for sure not dealing with any of these cold winter temperatures! This month I selected Amanda from
@riot_pr! I've been following her for awhile and have been impressed with her clean swatches, and her cute nail art! It was about time that I feature her!
Enough of my babbling, time to hand the blog over to Amanda!
My name is Amanda & I'm from Arizona :)
My nail art journey started in 2010, after using some pretty colors to make polka dots, or rotating 2 or 3 colors on every other finger. I would post my creations on facebook, & my friends would comment, "How cute!", or, "These are cool!" They'd ask me to paint their nails; girls at work would ask as well. I thought that was it & I didn't really practice or work on my skills until one fateful day in 2012 when I downloaded a phenomenon known as "Instagram" ;) It was there that I found, I wasn't the only one with a passion for this nail art racket, & I slowly started making friends & learning so many different techniques! It's been a fun ride so far, but I still have so much to learn. If you're new to the IG nail community, welcome! And if you're a seasoned vet, thanks for teaching me some stuff! :)
Okay, okay... enough rambling :)
I decided to do some nail art inspired by my state flag. I used Zoya "Arizona" as my base (orange), red acrylic paint for the stripes & that gorgeous blue glitter is "Friendship" from @simplybeautiful1973 ♡ The gold star is from a variety pack of charms I got from Amazon. Topped it all off with Glass fast dry top coat by @ellageepolish :)
Thank you so much for checking me out, & a big thank you to Alaina @thelittlecanvas for this opportunity! :)
That Zoya is so gorgeous! I don't have anything like that in my collection and must find it or a dupe! So cool that Amanda was inspired by her state flag! And that the color is called Arizona which is her state....a much warmer state than mine. Oh how I wish I wasn't up north here in the cold.
Make sure to head on over to Instagram and follow Amanda!!
Thank you so much for this awesome post!!!
Until next time, <3.
