Palm Trees

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone is all ready for the May 2-4 long weekend! We sure are! Our original plans were to build a deck but that’s a bit expensive right now, so we’re planting a flower garden at the back of the yard. I hope it turns out great!

Today I’d like to share my gradient stamping!

What I Used:
Base: OPI Angel with a Leadfoot
Gradient: China Glaze Sun Upon my Skin, Grass is Lime Greener and Shore Enuff.
Stamping: Bundle Monster clear stamping and BM-S308, Wet’N’Wild Black Creme

I used a makeup sponge to create the gradient and liquid latex around my nails for easy clean up. (I need a new one though, mine is starting to get moldy I think..).

And one of the best parts is that my nails GLOWWW! I find it difficult to capture a good shot of glowing nails. I take so many photos which turn out to be blurry. This was the best one out of 30!

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone enjoys their long weekend!


Stary Mountains

Good Morning & Happy Thursday to Everyone!

Amazing morning so far – and that’s pretty good as I need a large coffee in me before everyone makes sense – but any-who… I’ve lost more weight! I’m 158lbs and my goal is 157, So close! I also have awesome nails to share!

What I Used:
The Base: Color Club Wild Cactus. Once dry, I sponged on Julep Holly and Julep Rita.
Stamping: Bundle Monster clear stamper & Festival plate BM-S306. OPI Angle with a Leadfoot.

This plate is pretty awesome. It stamped super well and turned out just how I imagined, (which doesn’t usually happen!) I wanted to create a mix between the northern lights and that brief moment after the sun goes down to create a greeny-purply majestic scene. Julep Holly is shimmery but not over the top and I think it works well for what I wanted.

Mountains(8)Here is a close up of the small scene going on, on my nails! There’s forest on either side and mountain in the middle, all under a stary night!

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has a great day! (Also tm is Friday the 13th!) Enjoy your weekend!


Festival Stamping

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I took my Mom (AlwaysaRedHead) to the African Lion Safari for her Birthday/Mother’s Day. We had tons of fun, saw a bunch of cool animals and learned a lot about them. I really wanted to do safari themed nails, but with so much going on this weekend I didn’t have time. Therefore today I have some simple gradient stamping.

What I used:
The Base: Color Show Taupe on Trend
Stamping: Bundle Monster Festival Plate BM-S304 & clear stamper. Cosmetic Arts polishes a pink and a light peachy-pink-tan. (Polishes have no names)

I did a test stamp on a zip lock baggie first to make sure the colours would show well, but it didn’t turn out quite the same on my nails. I still love the design, but I wish I chose a lighter taupe for the base.

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone had a great weekend, and I hope this week will be great too!
