Good Morning Everyone!

Woke up this morning to another 4″ of snow! Isn’t Spring yet? My tulips were coming in, hopefully this cold weather won’t kill them!

Today I tried a white gel polish from Born Pretty Store. I ordered this because I thought it would be good to have a white base for a bunch nail designs.

The gel polish was super easy to put on. I find gel polish to be on the thicker side so I always have to take such time to apply it. I need a bit more practice as I seem to still put on too much.

I stamped using Sinful Colors Black on Black and MoYou London Pro-XL plate 7. I love this pattern but I could NEVER get it straight on my nail, but using a clear stamper I was BEYOND HAPPY with my nails!

Oh and the white gel polish GLOWS! My only issue with the gel polish is that the following day my thumb nail polish popped right off! The design was intact but it fell off! Then while inspecting my other nails the rest could come off just as easy! So I’m not sure if it failed to bond to the base gel or the white gel polish is no good, but either way I will have to try again.

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope the sun comes out and melts the snow away so we can start having Spring weather!

Glittery Gold Stamping

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone is enjoying their week. It has certainly felt like a long week for me, I am happy the weekend is almost here! Today’s nails are simple stamping!

The base is a Cosmetic Arts gold glittery polish. I only needed 2 coats for full coverage, which I was impressed about. I stamped using PUEEN plate 83 and Sinful Colors Black on Black AND my clear stamper from the Born Pretty Store!

Where has the clear stamper been all my life! I still can’t get over how satisfying it is to finally have a straight design on my nails! I know I raved about in my last post, but it is seriously AWESOME!

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Gradient Stamping

Good Morning!

Happy Easter Monday to all. Unfortunately some of us have to work today but good thing there is free coffee at work! I recently ordered a clear stamper from the BornPrettyStore. And I love it! I have always had a problem when it came to stamping straight and this helps me SOOO much!

The base is Color Club Wicker Park. I used MoYou London plate Festive 4. I placed Sinful Colors Aquamarine and OPI Angel with a Leadfoot on the stamping plate, then scraped the polish across until it blended in the image.

With the clear stamper, it makes stamping so much more fun! I love knowing where exactly I’ll be stamping. (and having a straight image!)

I topped everything off with Color Club Si Vous Please! Because I wanted it to have some sparkle! Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope you have a great Easter Monday!
