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!

Space Pizza!

Good Morning Everyone!

Today I have some awesome nails I’ve wanted to try for 2 weeks! The idea for these nails came to me after my watermelon nails. I wanted to do something similar in style and that’s when I thought PIZZA! And to make it better I did a spacey background. (Ya that’s right, I wanted SPACE PIZZA!)

What I Used:
Base: Color Club (no name), it’s a dark purple polish and Si Vous Please! for sparkle
Pizza: Crust-China Glaze Don’t Honk Your Thorn, Cheese-China Glaze Metro Pollen-Tin and OPI Angle with a Leadfoot, Pepperoni-Barielle Big Apple Red

I used a super thin brush to create the pizza. I started with triangles in the crust colour, then did a few drops of the cheese polishes and swirled them around with the brush and I used a small dotting tool for the pepperoni. I think these nails are so freakin’ cute!

What was even more awesome is that at work it was inventory day which means the whole plant gets a pizza day! It’s the greatest day for pizza! Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my pizza as much as I did! Have a great weekend!

St Patrick’s Day

Happy Hump Day!

Today has been such a busy day already! I got up early-like before work-to shovel because I really didn’t want to do it after work! Holy so much snow! We got close to a foot. Luckily it was light and mostly fluffy so it wasn’t difficult to shovel!

Today I have my first of a few St Patrick’s Day nail designs. The base is a grey from Cosmetic Arts. Such a beautiful grey, I really wish these polishes had names! I used my second smallest dotting tool to create the green clovers with Mojito Madness from Essie. Then used an even smaller dotting tool for the dark sparkly clovers inside the green ones. That polish is I Got Distracted from Cult Nails.

This turned out so cute! Like look at those adorable clovers! The stems were a bit difficult but most looked ok.

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has fun in the snow!
