HELP!



UPDATED TO ADD:

I'm more curious about the ones not as easily replicated. (i.e. sponged gradients, marbles, etc). Thanks again! :-) Don't forget all the earlier ones, too!

So I put this call out to you, my amazing readers…I'm curious, if you could have your nails like ANY of my nail designs so far, which would you choose? Tell me in the comment the ones that you NEED to have, perhaps just WANT, or are completely in LOVE with!

No, this isn't to boost my ego, I'm working on a project, and I'm too close to the blog, so I need outside eyes!!

XOXO

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love the True Blood fang nails that you did

    ReplyDelete
  17. Very hard to choose, you have a lot of wonderful ones!

    I would say the Flintstones, because they look exactly like them, it literally looks like they are stickers, very very well done! Super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Coming from a Beatle freak myself, I'd have to go with your Beatles ones from a couple days ago.

    However, all of your nail designs are love.

    ReplyDelete

  24. Right now I would love to have "On Orange Alert" for fall. But I remember when i saw your "Gilded Gradients" and thought WOW. I have a soft spot for "I'm Afraid thats Classifieds" as well. Looking back and going forward I can tell you have really grown as an artist!

    ReplyDelete

  29. The Beatles, is the best to me

    here in Brazil tomorrow, we celebrate Children's Day and the day of Our Lady Aparecida, is a holy day and national holiday, that day is very important for Brazilian children get their presents and the faithful go to church to pray, if you could do a nail in tribute to Brazil, I thank you so much

    ReplyDelete
  30. I absolutely love the marbled ones. After seeing one of your designs that was marbled I looked up videos till I learned how to do that for myself and have done it three times since then. I've gone out and bought several different colors of polish just so I could do the marbles.

    ReplyDelete
  31. these are a bit older, but i loved the superman ones (im a total geek, i know) as well as the zip ones and the hitchcock!

  33. I seem to be drawn to some of the 50's sorts of designs, like It's Cosmic and Atomic Wedgewood. I could NEVER recreate anything like that!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hm.. I liked
    It's Cosmic!
    NO H8
    The nerds one
    and I think it was called "Sorry, its in the classifieds."

    ReplyDelete
  35. Definetly the camo design and the gradient designs and MARBLING!!! :) thanks

    ReplyDelete
  36. The half-toned design is my favorite! Or, the cross hatch design. But, I'd love it more with a creme gray or purple-y grey background!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Let's Go Disco!
    Worn...out.

    Those are my absolute 2 favorites! I have done the Disco nails, freehand style.. but not the worn out one (yet..)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, but they're all so amazing! But...um...I think the cross-hatching, Cut on the Dotted Line, Nerds, Dots (I obviously like candy), and mehndi designs are my favorites. But it's SO hard to pick when all your designs are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would go back through them all if I had time, but the one that really sticks out in my mind as a possible favorite is the one that changes color in the sunlight. I loved the color (the in-sun color) and the design on it. I believe it was one of the stamped on designs on it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. SOCK MONKEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    YOU SHOULD DO AN UGLY DOLL THEMED ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. i looove them all! but i liked the NOH8 ones
    BUT i LOVED the domo ones!!! im obsessed with domo and these are amazing! =) <3

    ReplyDelete
  42. All of them... every thing you do is perfect. I tried to make someones in my nails... but have one that is perfect and I know that is impossible to me: the planets. I really love this one. ;D

    ReplyDelete
  43. the alice in wonderland cat
    OR
    the domo kun one .

    ReplyDelete
  44. I loved your two-handed rainbow marbeling! I would love to learn how to do that!

    ReplyDelete
  45. i loved absolutely LOVED I Rose to the Occasion:) i love them all but so far my favorite one is that.... its the one I would want on my nails... its such a simple design its beautiful!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I went back and looked at every single mani and found myself digging the mono and dichromatic ones the most. While I'm amazed at the really complicated manicures (like the planets which I LOVED!) I was really drawn to the simplest designs, especially those that had a retro feel to them.

    ReplyDelete
  47. "Let's go Disco" <3

    ReplyDelete
  48. In no particular order,
    true blood
    daily nail logo

    5-star nails
    rubber ducky!
    solar powered
    between a rockabilly and a hard place
    radiator
    smurfs
    I can't narrow it down more!
    Just went through everything again and wow, you're the best! =D

    ReplyDelete
  50. All of the ones with faces, i.e. The Beatles, Dexter, Disney Villains, etc. It boggles my mind that you can paint those tiny faces so well!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I really loved the "Tulle" ~ with the brown and blue. Very pretty and if I had an iota of talent I would try to replicate it. I think you should try to get a book deal. Publish all of the designs with amazing photos and blurbs about what gave you the idea. Just like the blog but in a book. I would buy it and I'd buy it for my friends!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Your NINJA NAILS! Those were adorable! And I also like many of your chic, modern nails with the dots.

    ReplyDelete
  53. The lightning bugs in jars were so awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  54. i absolutely love the lightning bugs and the white nails with the black birdies. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. The acorns were pretty neat, and the presents you did for christmastime are ones that I TOTALLY wish I could do myself

    ReplyDelete
  56. Went through...again...amazing!
    Fabric week & Gradients...LOVE
    Mums the Word & I Rose to the Occasion...PRETTY

    Looking forward to seeing the "project!" Thanks for sharing the past year of your life, I've enjoyed your art.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Its gotta be the Cheez it design. I flippin' love Cheez-its. I could live off of those things! :D

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love the half-tone one you did a while ago!
    Any of the fabric-inspired ones...or the mcdonald's fries! Too cute :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I liked the Holiday ones....esp. the Valentines corset one and Valentines candy convo hearts! But my most favorite of all were the Thumbprint ones you did for a crime show, I think it was CSI, I did those in neon colors and loved it! Love your work!

    ReplyDelete
  60. love the chocolate dipped strawberries and m&ms

    ReplyDelete
  61. The basket weave is incredible to me...every time that I look at in I am in awe. The shading, the perfect lines, everything...I'd love to rock that look. Even in different colors I feel like it could be awesome.
    You're the bomb dot com...so glad I've been able to follow this blog! It's the only blog I've ever followed, besides my little sisters. :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I absolutely love the Murdered Out nails you did. Although it wasn't the most detailed nail design you've done, I find it so creative and pretty. I wish I could get my nails to look like that.

    ReplyDelete
  63. The planet nails were incredible! I loved those!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I loved the nails called "Give 'em they ol' one tulle." They were really pretty. I also really liked the stained glass ones you did in honor of your grandfather. There are so many good ones to choose from.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Gilded Gradients, and any marble ones. The colours are great! They are amazing, and its something you could wear everyday because they dont have a particular theme, picture or character on them, just a mixture of beautiful colours.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Mummies from October 20
    Tie Dye from December 8
    Pirate Map from September 19

    hope this helps!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I did a Cheshire Cat manicure after seeing yours because I loved it! Marbled all fingers (purple and lilac) except my left thumb, on which I painted the cat's face from the whiskers to the chin. My first you-inspired design! Mine sucked, but it was based on something awesome :P I recently bought some makeup sponges after seeing your Gilded Gradients design from October 1. I'm going to try sponging soon... I hope it looks as cool as yours!
    p.s. If you click on my URL, it should show you a picture (albeit, a terrible one) of my Cheshire Cat nails. Sorry about the angle and glare, my dad was taking the pictures =/ Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love the nails "Twilight" is my favorite.
    I'm Brazilian, and i love this blog. congratulations, and sorry my english.
    VOCÊ É INCRÍVEL

    ReplyDelete
  69. Loved many of your designs, but the ones that stick in my memory as being filled with awesomeness: Pee Wee Nails, bacon nails Lthey're actually how I found you way back then), and the amazing dots/graphic test witht the different colors. Sorry my spelling sucks, its late and I am thumb typing on my droid.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love the Flintstone nails and the Pirates/Treasure Map nails! Your art work is truly incredible!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm not talented at all so I probably would never be able to replicate any of your designs. There ares so many I would love but I really want to do the ones that have the faded glitter over the top of a solid color. (do you even know what one i mean)

    ReplyDelete
  72. my absolute favorite is Mullet Mani, i love the design and the way it changes in the sunlight, just beautiful..

    ReplyDelete
  73. The toy story 3 nails or the mac disney nails

    ReplyDelete
  74. I couldn't pick just one, or even 5. I find your work so amazing (I can barely paint my nails one color without looking like a five year old attacked me with a spray paint can). So, here are my top faves:
    Beware the koopa troopa
    Let me take you down
    Just Breathe
    mullet mani (the color change was spectacular)
    Cross-hatching a plan, that base color is phenom.
    Lovely lotus
    A sparkle in my eye
    Molten metals
    Ulta-mate

    ReplyDelete
  75. i love the sponged gradients!!! they are so awesome but could be tame enough for an office environment and would work on my teeny tiny short nails!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Definitely the planets - my dad is an astronomer, and he thought it was amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I definately love gradients. I'm also crazy about the Shel Silverstein set. This is probably my favorite out of all the ones you've done so far. Now, if you could do Michigan J. Frog, you'd be my hero! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  78. I really like the penny and cleopatra one.... and especially the john lennon and the twilight ones very sharp!

    ReplyDelete
  79. The "Start Spreading the News" NY themed nails. They are my inspiration. I actually attempted them on my blog if you want to check them out..

    ReplyDelete
  80. this was HARD! I would say my fav is Jeans, also love its a crime, and crime scene, those wud be my top fav's, but so many honorable mentions! here are my top favs: (I seem to favor the food ones, am I HUNGRY?) happy fryday, aint easy, violin, chippnails (HILARIOUS), sock it to me, smores, daily nails design, cheese it, bacon, no 2, picnic, trueblood, doublestuff, glee (despite the pornographic image lol) non smoking, camo, colts/saints, conversation hearts, drink me im irish, paper, the birds, hostess, tease, on memorial day, birthday, run for the border, app for that and hotdog.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Murdered Out was my favorite!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. "I'm Sorry That's Classifieds" was definitely my fave. Great job on your 365 project! You should be so proud! :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. the space one! I think you named it "solar power" but they are all great!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I love that you did "Where the Sidewalk Ends"!!! 'Sick' is my favorite poem of all time. While I love all of the artwork you did, amazing btw, I would have loved to have seen the "The Nightmare before Christmas", I think you would do that awesomely!!! Thank you for sharing all year, it's been so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I would love to learn how to do water marbling. I had never seen that technique before I saw it here, and it would be awesome to learn how to do it. My favorite manicure of yours is one you did a long time ago called"'In' Blossom." I love cherry blossoms and that manicure was my all-time favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I liked the dots one because I could do it. I liked most of them, actually, or I wouldn't keep coming back here, but that one keeps coming to mind because it has so many variations, all different.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Oops! You wanted to know which ones I'd like on my own fingers? I've been copying them all year, with variations! I'm copying your spiderwebs this Halloween, only in gold on lavender under an iridescent polish. I did gradients last week by cheating (I did 2 coats of different colors, then after they were dry buffed the top coat off half my nails so the lower coat showed through.) I copied your swirls like the bowling table nails, did shiny on matte in the same colors numerous times. I'll probably copy many more in the future. You are an inspiration!
