Guest Poster #14 Charlie from POPPINGNAILS!

This is the second Guest Post the amazing Charlie has done for BCTCNAILS, (actually one year ago to the day!) I’m a big fan of Charlies' unique designs and use of color and i think you (if you aren’t already) will be too!

Enjoy! :)


When Kelly asked if I could do a guest post for her, I was really excited. I wasn’t planning on doing any Valentine’s Day themed nails myself on my blog but I thought of this idea quickly and loved it. It’s not the typical hearts and roses obvious Valentine’s Day design but that isn’t my style and something quirky like this is. I used a base of W7 Sheer Pink just to give my nails a nice neutral shade and to get rid of any staining. All the black I used is Barry M Black and I went in with the bee to start with, along with Barry M Yellow and Sally Hansen Polar Bare for the wings. I then did the lettering with Barry M Black and Pomegranate filling in the bottom. I then added in some hearts using Barry M Passion Fruit, Strawberry Ice Cream and Sinful Colors 24/7. I love the look of these nails, and hopefully you can see as well the trail from the bee is a question mark giving the nails a “Be Mine?” theme. Anyway, I hope you all like this design and thanks to Kelly for letting me create something for her. 


Thanx Charlie I love them!

Hey! It’s Megan from “meg-lacqsit”. I’m a huge fan of BCTC and I’m uber excited to be a guest poster!

Floral designs are one of my favorites to do. This was inspired by a plastic storage container I saw at Big Lots! Lol. To create this design I started by painting my thumb, middle, & ring fingers with Essie’s “Blanc”. Then I painted my index finger with “Con Limon” by Floss Gloss and my pinky with “Coral Bikini” (also by FG). I used those 2 colors to make the floral pattern on the white nails by making teardrop shapes. Thanks so much for having me, Kelly! I hope you like this design I created! xx


Thanx Meg! I love it!
