IT

Good Morning!

Today’s nails are anticipation of tomorrow. For some crazy reason I agreed to see the new IT movie. I probably won’t sleep Friday night. My BF’s Dad likes the book and the old IT movie so he’s leading the parade to the theater.

I did the nails with a glossy top coat but I thought it was hard to see so I put a matter top coat over top. Here is a side by side:

What I Used:
Base: You’re so Tragic gel polish from Bundle Monster
Balloons & ‘IT’: Color Club Style Icon & Royal Flush and China Glaze White on White.

These nails turned out so creepy! The glossy IT looks textured and bring out the (blood) red colour. I free-handed the balloons and ‘IT’ using a thing brush. I did it all in white first, then went over it in the reds.

Just a few more pictures to really show you the balloons!

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I probably won’t sleep Friday night cause I’ll be having nightmares about Pennywise. I hope everyone else has a wonderful weekend.

Long Weekend Neons!

Good Morning!

How is everyone doing this morning? I’m super excited it’s almost the long weekend! I had to have fun nails for the occasion! This design used 5/6 Color Club Neon Collection.

What I Used:
Base: Chine Glaze White on White
Colours: Color Club Volt of Light, Tangerine Scream, Pure Energy, Ultra Violet & Electro Candy and China Glaze In the Lime Light.

I placed drops on polish on my MoYou London large marshmallow stamper then proceeded to stamp on the polish. It created this marble effect. Mushed up neons are some of the best neons!

I used skinny chevron nail vinyls to create the white spaces. I did have a bit of leakage under the nail vinyls but that was totally my fault since I had just painted my nail white I was scared I was going to mess up the mostly dry polish by pressing them down hard. Luckily is was fairly easy to cleanup!

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend. Mondays blog post will most likely be on Tuesday (since the Monday is the holiday). Thanks again!

Curtain Call

Happy Mani Monday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I accomplished quite a bit this weekend. We took a trip to Ikea where I bought a frame and some white boxes. I created a new light box that perfectly fits in my shelving unit. We also found some beautiful new curtains for our living room, so I spent Sunday hemming them to fit.

Today’s nails are inspired by…the curtains! Yes. Spending all the time with the curtains made me want to put them on my nails!

I took all these photos in my new light box! I’ve wanted to do this for so long. I’ve always had a light box but it was so big and bulky it didn’t fit the space well. This is perfect and slides away amazingly.

What I Used:
Base: Essie Bobbing for Baubles on my pinky, index and thumb. China Glaze White on White on my ring and middle finger.
Stamping: Color Club Feel Tower Power & PUEEN plate 83

Check out that curtain comparison! SPOT ON! I cannot believe how changing some curtains can alter the whole dynamic of the room. Before they were red ones, (free from my parents, they looked fine), but now, WOW. Our living room looks amazing.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I wish everyone a wonderful week, check back Thursday for new nails!
