Poppies for Remembrance Day

Good Morning Nail Peeps,

I hope everyone is having a good week so far! As mentioned on Monday, I have poppy nails to share.  While driving to work this week, Christmas lights have been turned on by the City down the main street. Don’t get me wrong, I love the holidays but turning the lights on before Remembrance Day is disrespectful. Why can we not wait a whole 11 days before starting another holiday and take those 11 days to remember how we are so lucky to have what we have today.

Drives me a bit nuts. I even sent an email to my ward Councillor. Anyways! Nail time!

Products
Base: Wet’N’Wild Yo Soy.
Poppies: Zoya Amal, Nicole by OPI Sensational Scarlet & OPI 4 in the Morning.

I used a dotting tool to create the poppies and its center. I topped it all off with Sinful Colors matte top coat.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend and please take a moment to remember those who fought (and are fighting) for us.

Rainbow Monday 🌈

Happy #ManiMonday!

What a beautiful weekend! I spent all weekend outside working on the yard and hanging out with family! I luckily had a few minutes late Sunday night to do a rainbow dotticure.

So many polishes were used!
Base: Color Club On My Versailles. It it an extremely sheer polish. I used it because I didn’t want to go with a clear base coat. This gave it a hint of colour.
Rainbow: Red-Color Club Style Icon & China Glaze Seas the Day, Orange-Color Club Coral Cascade & KB Shimmer For Fox Sake, Yellow-Revlon Electric & China Glaze Sun Upon my Skin, Green-China Glaze Shore Enuff & Sinful Colors Innocent, Blue-Essie I’m Addicted & China Glaze Frostbite and finally Purple-China Glaze Lotus Begin & Color Club Pucci-licious.

Holy smokes! 13 polishes! I used my silicone mat to blob each polish colour on and used a small and medium dotting tool to create the dots. I love how this turned out. Only thing I would change is the orange section. The polishes I chose are tool close in colour so unless you’re looking really close it just looks like one shard of orange.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope this week is just as beautiful as the weekend was! Thanks!

Birthday Camping

Good Morning!

I was so busy Thursday morning my blog post slipped my mind! You would think after doing so many post on the same days you wouldn’t forget.

Today’s nails are to celebrate my 28th birthday on Saturday. My BF, his sister and I are going camping.

What I Used:
Oh boy! This is a huge list. 12 polishes.
Base: (The greens) China Glaze Highlight of my Summer, In the Lime Light, Sinful Colors Innocent, Barielle Central Park and NOPI One Time Lime.
Camp Fire: China Glaze Unplugged, Color Club light brown, Tangerine Scream, Revlon Electric and Essie She’s Pampered
HBD & 28: China Glaze White on White and OPI 4 in the Morning

I love the way these turned out. For the base I blobbed all the greens on a large stamper and stamped the mushed up polish on my nails…made quite a mess. I then used a thin brush fro the logs and flames. I used the same brush to spell HBD (short form of Happy Birthday) and 28.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I have a half day at work so we can leave around lunch for camping! I’m super excited. I’ve even found a recipe to make brownies on the camp fire. Hopefully it works! Thanks again, have a wonderful weekend!
