Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Good Morning Everyone!

Did everyone have a great weekend?! I did but I am super excited for this coming weekend as I am going camping!! This week will be busy as I have 2 soccer games this week (one tonight and one Wednesday), plus we leave for camping on Thursday so packing everything up will be rushed!

Today I have some awesomely delicious nails!

What I Used:
Base: Cosmetic Arts pink polish (no name)
Pretzel: Wet’N’Wild Yo Soy, OPI Angle with a Leadfoot, and China Glaze Unplugged.

I did my nails to match my pretzel pool floaty but my nails didn’t last long enough to take a picture with it. It was surprisingly difficult to free hand the pretzels, but after about 2 attempts I got the hang of it.

This coming weekend is Canada day! (That’s why I’m going camping) and with 2 soccer games and packing I **hope** to have another blog post on Thursday, but I can’t promise one! I will let everyone know on twitter if I can’t get a post up. Also just realized that the Monday after camping might not have a blog post either…this got depressing! I will work my hardest to bring you awesome nails.

Thanks everyone for stopping by! have an amazing week!

Polka Dots

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Don’t worry tomorrow is Friday which means the weekend is almost here. I had another awesome soccer game last night. Another win, 3-0, making this the 4th shut-out in 5 games. I’m so proud!

Today’s nails are simple yet colourful and fun. Polka-dot nails!

What I Used:
Base: Born Pretty Store White Gel Polish 6004
Dots: Cosmetic Arts Purple (no name), Color Club He Loves Me, China Glaze Sun Upon My Skin, Be More Pacific and Turned Up Turquoise, and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue. I used one dotting tool for all the dots.
Top: OPI Rapid Dry Top Coat

I absolutely love these colours together! I wanted a fun, colourful, summery nails and I think I nailed it! I used the same size dotting tool for the dots and just kept dotting until the white was mostly covered. (I like the bits of white that come through.)

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has a great weekend and a fabulous manicure!

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!
