Nail Diary #65

Monday May 28th, 2012
Monday what … Totally doesn’t feel like a Monday.
What a great day…spent the day at the water park with my cute little family. Fun fun I love holidays!!!
Happy that I finally I found the time to redo my nails!!
The pool inspired me to want to use a neon polish.
I have never done a neon tip….here we go my “neon frenchy”.
Color on nails China Glaze Heaven with Sinful Colors Summer Peach on the tip. This time I actually used nail tape when I did the tips…lots more work than freehanding tips.
Loving this look. So excited for more trips to the pool this summer!!
Thanks for reading.

Nail Diary #64

Friday May 25th, 2012 but not posted until 5/28/12
Ok I almost didn’t post this mani…
This is my memorial day themed mani. And my first time working with tape in this way.
I don’t like it….and honestly if I wouldn’t have been so busy the past few days it wouldn’t have lasted this long. So many bloggers and gramers (instagram) pull this mani off flawlessly. Me not so much but I decided I should post the bad with the good. So here we go…
Started with a new Orly polish I just picked up last week dayglow this white is amazing….I think the brightest white I have ever seen…almost like the neon of all whites. IMO It could make the palest girl look tan. So then I attempted a diag red n blue tip…the tape was not easy to work with so most nails I just free handed. For the red I used China Glaze salsa the blue is China Glaze to blue year’s eve.
And bc my lines weren’t perfect I opted for China Glaze fairy dust a fine glitter that would hopefully distract people from seeing my bad lines.
Sorry for the tip wear in the photo, it’s Monday and I just got around to photographing it.
Hope everyone has a safe n fun memorial day.


Thanks for reading.

What a lazy Sunday.
Instead of cleaning my closet I opted to try a water marble mani.
Mr am1e suggested I try a dark water marble.
Started with a light color on my nails Sinful Colors social ladder
Colors in the water randomly were :
Sinful colors black on black
Sally xtreme wear white on and gunmetal
Finger paints easel come,easel go!
And Loreal VIP status
I am happy with the marble this time. I love the contrast between the light and dark colors.
Just be sure if you attempt a water marble make sure it is dry before you apply final top coat… I got in a hurry applied it too soon and streaked some of my darker colors, boo. On well can’t always be perfect right 🙂
Hope u have a great beg of the week. Thanks for reading.

Happy almost Friday. Yay for the weekend!!
I can’t bare to take off my holo China Glaze hyper haute. Last night I did another coat and today it is still beautiful. So for something different without totally repainting I just stamped them. It was so hard to pick a stamp. I settled on a cluster of stars. Stamp BM-220.
So not my fav stamp…but it was too late I was committed 😉
I think the stamp is awkward and placement is not easy. The stars look sparse. But it will do for a day or 2.
Now that the days are longer I am finding it hard to sit down n paint my nails especially when it is nice out. We have this big beautiful yard that requires a lot of TLC.

On another note if you want to see my random photos follow me on IG (instagram) @am1e. I post at least once every few days :o)

Ps look at these beautiful lillies that bloomed yesterday…so gorg. Almost the same color as my nails.

Happy mommy’s day!!
My last mani held up until today… It has been a busy past few days so it had to last.
My color tonight was inspired by a flower in my garden, the one in the picture 🙂
It’s a holo…so that means it comes alive in the sun. China Glaze hyper haute 3 coats. The camera does not do this one justice.
I love this color…I only have 3 halos and I ❤ them all.
Sorry tonight’s post is short n sweet…so tired from working in the garden all day.
Night all. Sweet dreams.

Hiya happy Monday.
I survived camping :o)
But now camo nails b gone!!!
I need some glitter in my life.
Decided on China Glaze up all night a gorg dark blue. Reminds me of the midnight sky I saw on my camping trip…so I needed to add some stars.

Did an accent finger in China Glaze skyscraper. That was just not enough stars so I did glitter tips on each finger. Perfect…ahhh now that’s fabulous. Can’t wait to see this mani in the spring sun tomorrow.

Ps did you all see the super moon Saturday night…what an amazing unexpected sight on my camping trip…❤ my life.
