TGIF
It took me a long time to decide what to do on my nails tonight…
I wanted to do RWB but thought it might just be a lil too early.
Mr Am1e suggested these colors and I choose one of my new bundlemonster stamps.
First I painted all my nail Sinful colors creme pink. Pretty pretty pink on its own…it has a gold shimmer to it.
Decided to add a kiss with BM plate 303. Used sinful colors sugar sugar.
I love this stamp…so cute.
Did u get the new BM stamping plates…what is ur favorite so far???
Stamping is so fun!!

Try it Tuesday, again already!! I ❤ this…I have so many untrieds.
Tonight’s nails remind me of surf n sand. I am sitting in my craft room painting my nails and watching RHOC all the while wishing I was on a beach with some fruity cocktail.
Here we go…
My sand is China Glaze Cyberspace. It’s a taupe holo polish. It did need three coats, but this baby is gorg in sunlight. I must admit this isn’t an untried actually it is a fav of mine, I love holo polish I wish I had more colors.
Then I did a ring finger accent which is my sparkly beach water. Did a teal base using Nicole by OPI Blue Lace. On top of the teal I used a new China Glaze Optical Illusion from the prismatic line. This totally reminds me of the ocean sparkling in the sunlight.
I have to say I cannot wait to see this in the morning sun tomorrow…by the time I finished this tonight I was pretty much out of sun.

Thanks for reading.

In anticipation of getting my new 2012 bundlemonster stamping plates (so excited !! they shipped Friday) I decided to put a stamp on it today.
Remember when you stamp you want to make sure your base color is very dry. Started off painting my nails last night with Sally Hansen Posh Plum. This is a fun magenta color. Very bright and happy.
I am still not the best stamper…I will defiantly need to practice more…I have problems with full nail stamps, I always miss a spot. Ahhh well practice makes perfect.
On with the stamp, I picked BM-208 with Sally Hansen Celeb City silver metallic.
I like the stamp it would be great if I had this darn stamping mastered.
Anyhoo it looks good from afar…

So I am nail lazy tonight. Decided I am just glitzing up my Tuesday mani:
Which was Orly polish jealous,much? with sinful color let me go. I kept it simple and just added China Glaze luxe and lush on the top for a little lusciousness!!
I am hoping to hit the pool tomorrow so I thought L&L would look beautiful in the sun and water.
Sorry this is so short I am hoping this mani will get me by until Sat or Sunday night.

Thanks for reading.

Ok I am going for it …
Try it Tuesday
What the heck might as well…I have plenty colors I have never tried before.
Started with Orly polish jealous,much? I got this last week on sale at Sally’s. It’s a pretty soft mint green. A little too pastel for my taste, at least on its own. Polish was a lil streaky so def need 2-3 coats. Then I found a sinful color in my stash that I had yet to use let me go. This is a purple/green frosty jelly. IMO I don’t think this one would be good on its own, def needs a cream base.
I was just going to put it on my ring finger as an accent BUT I loved it so much I did all of them.
I can’t stop looking at my nails. Reminds me of exotic pearl nails.

Thanks for reading.

Nail Diary #72

Thursday June 14,2012 ( I know a lil behind blogging this)
After taking the time to do my tequila sunrise nails I woke up Thursday morning to the dreaded nail polish shrinkage. It literally drove me crazy all day at work to look at it. Pretty sure the shrinkage has to do with SV fast dry. I googled it and found a few tips to avoid such horrors in the future, hope they work.
Of course I went right home and redid my nails….well after I stopped by Sally’s BS after work.
I must say I scored at Sally’s…there were a bunch of red tagged orly n CG polishes I could not resist. Plus I took advantage of the buy 2 get 1 free finger paints stripping polishes. AND i had my coupon from spending 25 last month, think I saved $13more dollars….whoo hooo! Gotta ❤ a good sale/deal.
The color I used was one I picked up from clearance bin. Orly butterfly this is a pretty pink, I absolutely love it. Went on great, think I did 3 coats but prob really only needed 2.
I wanted to add a lil something without taking a long time so I used my BM 219 stamp and did zebra stripe tips in Revlon’s gold coin
I love the results.

Hiya
Here is my take on tequila sunrise nails….no I am not drinking tequila but I wish I was 😉
First I did Loreal tweet me on the nails.
Then 3/4 of the nails I did Sally Hansen xtreme wear sun kissed.
For the tips I used sinful colors cream pink
To add a lil sparkle china glaze fairy dust only my favorite fine glitter polish ever!!
Results are super cute at least IMO 😀
I was telling mr amie I wish I had a palm tree stamp for a accent nail….maybe next time; time to shop…. I think so 🙂
Hope you guys have a great rest of the week!! Almost to friday whoo hooo!!!
