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.
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!
Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving!
I hope everyone is passing a wonderful holiday. Today I have autumn themed nails.
Base: OPI This isn’t Greenland
Stamping: Bundle Monster collab plate with ellandish BMXL-201 & BM-S226, China Glaze Liquid Leather & White on White and Revlon Electric.
This Isn’t Greenland is a beautiful green! Such a perfect fall colour. I stamped the grid lines first. Followed by reverse stamping the sunflowers. I had a few mess-ups with the sunflowers not being quite dry enough or being a bit too sticky. Most worked, a small goof on my thumb but that’s all part of the nail painting process.
Thank you everyone for stopping by! Have a wonderful week and enjoy the rest of the holiday!
Good Morning & Happy #ManiMonday
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Saturday evening I picked my BF up at the airport; so nice to have him home! Sunday we had a relaxing day. We drove to my parents for brunch then stayed at home to do nothing.
Today’s nails feature another polish from OPI Iceland Collection.
What I Used:
Base: OPI Aurora Berry-alis
Berries: Zoya Iris, Color Club Wild Cactus & an un-names brown polish.
Check out that hand pose! My cinderella hand is killing these shots! I love this berry colour. Another gorgeous colour for the fall season. I started off drawing the branches, then the leaves and finished off with a dotting tool to create the berries.
Thank you everyone for stopping by. I’m excited to keep trying out the OPI collection. I already have my next mani planned out! Thanks again!
