Ahoy Matey!

Good Morning Everyone!

I’m super tired today as my soccer game last night started at 9, so I didn’t get home till 11:45, but we won! 2-1. I even stopped a penalty shot but ended up pulling my thumb muscle (pretty sad to say, I know!).

I am super excited to share my sailor inspired nails! I wanted to do something similar to this, but while painting my nails it just happened. The ideas just flew through me onto my nails (haha sounds so sappy), but they did and I am ecstatic with the results!

What I Used:
Base: Cosmetic Arts polish. It is a deep blue with hints of blue and silver sparkle. It is super subtle but amazing!
Dots: Maybelline Color Show Bold Gold (In LOVE with this colour) & OPI Angel with a Leadfoot (I know I’ve used this in the past 300 manis but its the perfect white! I’m going to need another pretty darn soon!) I used a large dotting tool for the dots.
Stripes: OPI (again…same as above) I used thin striping tape to create the stripes.
Studs: I ordered these anchor charms off eBay. I also have them in silver.

If you didn’t notice I changed my nail shape a bit. I don’t have long enough nails for the ballerinas nails I want, so I’ve just done a subtle angle on the edges. I’m hoping this will help with ripping/breaking.

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope you all have a great weekend, we are supposed to have another weekend of amazing weather!



Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend! I can’t believe I found time to write a blog post! I have been gardening all weekend and still have more to do today! Therefore today will be a brief post.

What I Used
Base: China Glaze Stoked to be Soaked
Stamping: Bundle Monster BM-XL29 & clear stamper, Sally Hansen White Out.
Studs: Orange fruit studs from eBay.

It is a bit hard to see the stamping since the white is pretty thin, but I still love it! And I can never get over the super cute fruit!!

Thank you everyone for stopping by on this BEAUTIFUL long weekend! Enjoy!

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was pretty relaxed. I got a tetanus shot on Friday, just to keep it up-to-date and well my arm was so sore! I’ve gotten needles for a long time with my allergies but this one, well was a million times worst.

With the warm weather on its way I wanted to create a mani that matched! I got inspired from @justagirlandhernails on Instagram.

The base is Essie polish Strut your Stuff (the blue) and Color Show Porcelain Party. For the stamping I used Bundle Monster BM-505 and Color Show Bold Gold.

I bought the charms off eBay. I loved this mani so much! But after a Sunday trip to Ikea I lost 2 of the charms! (Good thing I bought a bunch!)

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone enjoys the unusually warm weather this week!
