I'm Becca, an amateur nail artist from Canada.

If you're interested in the process behind any of my manicures just let me know and I'll see what I can do about a tutorial!

I can’t even remember the last time I did a design with a pastel colour palette but I’ve remedied that this week with this super cute Molang design!
Today I have some silver rhinestones to review. I’m not going to lie, I literally spent over an hour trying to figure out just what to do with these rhinestones. In the end I decided on this super cute design!
I’m taking inspiration from everywhere for this design. The scaled gradient is inspired by simplynailogical and the square borders are inspired by mrcandiipants. Both are super talented artists whose work I highly admire.
Today I have some french tip guides to review. I had a plan on what to do with them from the beginning - a scaled gradient! I’m probably a little late to this trend, but I just had to try it out myself and this was the perfect opportunity.
Here’s a solo shot from my mani swap with Robin of roaringnails!
I always love her designs and it was fun getting to do this swap with her! If you haven’t already, you should definitely go check out her blog!
I’m so excited about my very first mani swap with the lovely Robin of roaringnails! She’s super sweet and always has cute nails; I really admire her designs.
Originals are on the left and recreations are on the right; didn’t they both turn out well? I love her recreation!
Under the Sea
I figured I had room for one last really summery manicure before the season is over so here we go!
I really like how the water turned out; I might use this technique more often!
Then and Now: Scaled Down
Sorry for being MIA for the past week but I do have a legitimate excuse: I was in Scotland for my cousin’s wedding!
Theses are the nails I had for the wedding and they’re a recreation of a design I did last March, (but with much improvement)!
