Fresh Blues in a Moroccan Inspired Skittlette

Borrowing the words of Monty Python, "And now for something completely different."

Looking back over the last bunch of posts, there has been a lot of bright & bold designs. I haven't featured the softer side of things lately. Time to fix that!

Washed Away With Flowers

Today's nail art was very nearly NOT meant to be.

Sounds like a philosophical dilemma, but in reality it was with pure perseverance that these made it to post. I promise I will explain...but first let's look at the finished design shall we?

Ugly Beautiful Spring

Ahhh...Springtime. When the hibernating "ugly" brown plants of winter awaken making way for beautiful greenery.

And allergies. But let's forget about that last part. Instead, this post is all about the non-sneeze inducing nail art. Phew!

Kimett's 2017 First Quarterly Nail Art Round Up...And Stuff

Kimett Kolor 2017 First Quarter Blog Round Up

Hi there everybody. Today's post includes a brief round up of the last few months, with more bits and bobs added. For example, there is discussion about what's going on with my nails, some new-to-me nail care products I LOVE, and other stuff that's been going on behind the scenes to share. Also - I thought it would be fun to include a bit about me as a little bonus, especially to welcome all my new followers - Yay!

What do you think? Should be at least interesting, right? Of course, right.

Nail Crazies Unite - Sweets From A Chocolate Tree


Chocolate is a lady's first true love.

And, maybe her second craving is for pretty polished nails!? Hmm...I don't know about the latter, but I'm pretty sure I'm correct in my opening statement.

Oh, do I seem like I'm spouting off random thoughts...or am I starting a nail art post? Maybe both. Regardless, I promise to clarify everything. While you read on, I hope you'll find delight in my connections and confections, as well as check out this wonderfully moody polish featured here today.

Sea Life - featuring Clear Jelly Stamper


It always seems the more excited I am to share a post with you, the longer it takes me to pull it all together. Well, today's post took me what seemed like forever!!

If you were anywhere in the vicinity of, oh I don't know, North America...you would have heard a hearty "Whoopee!" echoing across your path when I hit the publish button on this one. There's lots of details, macros, a slideshow, and even a stuffed clown fish thrown in for good measure.

A Snowy Night - Drag Marble Nail Art Featuring Supernatural Power by Madam Glam


During my childhood, my Nono often told a story that had interchanging subjects, but it always started with the lines, "The night was dark and dreary." Believe it or not, these were always good stories, full of wonder and imagination. It is quite possible that you'll need similar imagination to see this nail art design as the snowflake pattern that I attempted to create by drag marbling gels.

Regardless, I hope you'll enjoy reading this post, no matter whether you see them as snowflakes that are melting...or maybe as fireworks....or just abstract designs.

Pink Snow Penguin


Some things you just have to get out of your system. For me, I *had* to put snowflakes on my nails before we run out of Winter. I can't say for sure if this will be the last time or not...I guess you could say I'm as predictable as the weather.

Want to see more penguins....? Yup. I thought so.

Indigo Jelly and Texture Zigzags


Does anyone else have fond memories of playing with the ole' carpenter's folding ruler? I loved making zigzags with one as a kid. You know what? I'm pretty sure they were originally designed for kids, but some adult decided that he wanted to keep using one in his day job. Yeah. That's my story.

Ahem. Let's see, where to begin this nail art post...

Nail Art for Every Month of the Year - Featuring Birthstones and Birthday Flowers


Looking for some nail art inspiration? I might spur an idea or two for you with this post. Contrary to the lengthy title above, in short I called this my "Theme of the Month" series.

Kimett Kolor Birthstones and Flowers Nail Art Designs

It's super exciting to see all twelve months' designs together!! Although it wasn't intended, it's also rewarding to see the improvement in my nail care and art over the course of the series....which took me 2+ years to complete...oops. Better late than never, I say. Anyways, now when looking them over I am inspired to keep the progress going. I hope it is inspiring you too!

By the way, this round-up post includes links, details, tidbits like which ones have step-by-step instructions, and more. Although it's a long post, it's mostly pictures...

Drag Marble Smoosh -- piCture pOlish Nail Art Challenge


Life is funny sometimes. And if/when it's not, you just gotta laugh anyway. There, that's my sentiment of the day; as well as a summary of how these nails came about.

On a less philosophical note -- you know I just love mixing and squishing lacquer colors together!! Which also induced more laughter...this might not look it, but it's a funny post!

2016 - Year In Review


I'm finding that I have quite a bit of excitement pouring over into the new year for Kimett Kolor...and it feels good! But, before busting out the new, I'd like to spend a little time reflecting on the last 12 months.


This post is going to be a bit wordy, and has no nail photos -- EEKS!! However if musings from the desk of Kimett sounds intriguing, grab your cuticle oil and have a read...
