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!

Blue Marble

Good Morning Nail World!

I have a quick blog post to share today! I wasn’t sure what to do on my nails last night. I knew I wanted to do something blue, so I did a lot of blue!

What I Used:
Base: Bundle Monster gel polish Button Down
Marbled: China Glaze White on White and Want my Bawdy, Color Club Pure Energy, Color Show Navy Narcissist & Essie Strut your Stuff.
Stamping: Bundle Monster plates BM-S404, BM-S405 & BM-S409 & China Glaze White on White.

I love the marbled effect. I blobbed the polish on my large MoYou London marshmallow and stamped the blobs on my nails. Cleaning the polish up was difficult, there is still polish stuck in my cuticles.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! It’s the May2-4 long weekend! My Monday blog post may or may not be on Monday. It could be a Tuesday blog. Have a great long weekend!
