Spiders

Good Morning.

I’m feeling a bit under the weather today. I have a sore throat and my head feels like a balloon. So today’s post will be brief.

These nails were inspired by @NailsbyCambria. She did nails with spider webs on clear nails. When I saw them I didn’t realize she had clear nails the thought she did a french tip in black. So I did my version and then I realized they were different!

Products Used:
Base: Color Club Oh My Versailles.
Stamping: China Glaze Smoke & Ashes and MoYou London Festive plate 44

I free-handed the french tips. I love how all turned out great.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Mani Monday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. My BFs sister came home from her trip to Cuba engaged! I am beyond happy for her! I went to the airport with her brother (my BF) and their mother. I greeted her with a giant pickle (her nickname) with a ring on it. (Photo will be up on my personal IG later today).

Nail time! More Halloween nails today. This time I did some reverse stamping. It mostly worked. But similar situation as my pervious sunflowers where the reverse stamp was very sticky and wouldn’t line up properly.

Products:
Color Club Si Vous Please!, Pucci-Licious & a dark purple with no name. China Glaze Lotus Begin & White on White and OPI 4 in the Morning. MoYou London Festive plate 44.

I created the gradient using a makeup sponge. I’ve been using regular tape in place of a latex barrier as I am out of latex. The gradient turned out better than expected. I topped it off with a clear sparkly polish.

The reverse stamping turned out ok. I believe I can do better. I almost didn’t post these nails since I didn’t like the stamping But I do this blog to show the ups and downs so I felt like I should post it. I’m happy i did!

I’ve had 2 nights this week where I’ve been able to spend a few hours on my nails so I already have 2 more Halloween posts to share plus a tutorial. That’s right, I’ve made my first nail video! I’m super proud and I hope to share it next week! Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!

The Funky Leopard

Good Morning!

How is everyone’s week going? Mine has been pretty relaxing. The most I’ve done with week is that I donated blood on Tuesday. It was my 9th time doing so. I’m very proud of myself for donating, But enough about me, its nail time!

Today’s nails are on the funky side!

Products Used:
Base Colours: Essie I’m Addicted & Tart Deco.
Leopard Print: China Glaze Liquid Leather & Cosmetic Arts silver sparkly polish.

I first painted my nails all the pinky color; then when dry I used tape to block of a section to create the blue area. I used a thin dotting took to create the spots. This turned out way better than expected. I love it!

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I’ve got maybe 1-2 more nail designs on my cinderella hand to share, but I’m happy to say that my nails on my left hand are back! Moving forward I think I will continue to use both hands as I am super happy how my cinderella hand has gotten used to taking photos.

Thanks again!
