I’m Home!

Good Morning Nail world,

I hope everyone had a wonderful week last week! I had a beautiful vacation; the sun was out everyday, it was hot, the drinks were cold and went down easy and the beach was gorgeous. I had mentioned 2 weeks ago I did up 2 sets of fake nails for the trip. Good thing I did because they were a mess. They did a fantastic job at protecting my real nails. I’ve blogged about the first set so the second set will be blogged about on Thursday.

Today I have nails I wore 2 Fridays ago, right before vacation, this time it was done on my real nails.

What I Used:
Base: Bundle Monster Button Down gel polish
Stamping: China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy & MoYou London Plate Tropical 11, Bundle Monster plate BM-S409 & China Glaze Liquid Vinyl.

These are basically the same as the fake nail set. I loved the look so much I wanted to do it with a white base. These fell off/broke the first day in the salt water so day 2 of my trip was putting on the fake set.

There are a few trip photos on my personal IG, and I will be posting a few more. If you like to check it out click HERE. Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has a wonderful week. See you Thursday!

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!

Red Blobs

Good Morning!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Ours was spent working on the deck. We also created a small rock garden with some lilies in one corner, which will catch the rain water from the roof. I had a small amount of time to paint my nails and I wanted to do red.

What I Used:
Base: Essie She’s Pampered
Blobs: KB Shimmer Fax of Life

These did not turn out very good. The red polish got everywhere and the blobs wouldn’t spread.  I was not having a good time with these nails. And when I went to take my photos I hit my thumb and smudged the one side. I mostly fixed it but it  still looked bad.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I know these nails aren’t the best but I still like to show everyone that sometimes it just doesn’t work out the way you want it too. Thanks again!
