Birthday Camping

Good Morning!

I was so busy Thursday morning my blog post slipped my mind! You would think after doing so many post on the same days you wouldn’t forget.

Today’s nails are to celebrate my 28th birthday on Saturday. My BF, his sister and I are going camping.

What I Used:
Oh boy! This is a huge list. 12 polishes.
Base: (The greens) China Glaze Highlight of my Summer, In the Lime Light, Sinful Colors Innocent, Barielle Central Park and NOPI One Time Lime.
Camp Fire: China Glaze Unplugged, Color Club light brown, Tangerine Scream, Revlon Electric and Essie She’s Pampered
HBD & 28: China Glaze White on White and OPI 4 in the Morning

I love the way these turned out. For the base I blobbed all the greens on a large stamper and stamped the mushed up polish on my nails…made quite a mess. I then used a thin brush fro the logs and flames. I used the same brush to spell HBD (short form of Happy Birthday) and 28.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I have a half day at work so we can leave around lunch for camping! I’m super excited. I’ve even found a recipe to make brownies on the camp fire. Hopefully it works! Thanks again, have a wonderful weekend!

CONSTANCE THE COAST GUARD IS VERY SERIOUS

Good Morning, and Happy Birthday to my Sister!

She turns 25 today. And for her birthday I’ve created special nails. Have you heard of Theodore Tugboat? It was a children’s TV show when I was a kid. One of the characters on the show was Constance the Coast Guard ship. She was always very serious and everyone had to be on their best behaviour when she was around. So now with a long running joke, I did the coast guard ship on my nails! Here is Constance:

What I Used:
Base: a pale blue Color Club polish (no name on bottle)
Stamping (thumb & ring finger): I stamped using PUEEN plate 76 onto a silicone mat and coloured the image in using a thin paint brush. I used China Glaze Liquid Leather, White on White, At Vase Value, Metro-Pollen-Tin & Seas the Day and Essie I’m Addicted.
Stamping (other fingers): Same PUEEN plate and Seas the Day
Words: I had written the words using the same small brush and a lamp/magnifying glass combo.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I know I said I was going to post my 2nd set of fake nails from vacation, but my sister comes first. I just hope she likes it!  Happy 25th Birthday Constance!

Golden Dots

Good Morning & Happy #ManiMonday

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I celebrated my BF’s grandfathers 91st birthday yesterday! It was a wonderful time, I made homemade apple pie and turned the crust into a big 91. We also did a lot of shopping for vacation. I can’t believe on Saturday I will be one a beach!

Today’s nails were inspired by some gold and black pineapples that were on some glasses we bought. I attempted to do the pineapples but  couldn’t get them small enough so  kept with the colors and did a dotticure.

What I Used:
Dots: Color Show Twilight Rays, Finger Paints Beverly’s Touch, Color Club Soft Chiffon and a glittery gold Cosmetics Arts polish.

For these dots I used a thin brush. I would normally use a dotting tool but I took my nail polish upstairs to paint my nails in front of the TV and was too lazy to go back downstairs for a doting tool. These turned out just a good!

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I’m planning on having 2 sets of fake nails to take on vacation. I find my real nails break super easy. I hope to share them with you on Thursday. Have a great week!
