I know these are so cheesy but oh soooooo cute. πŸ™‚
This is the YouTube video that inspired me:
Easter Inspiration
I changed up the color slightly. Instead of purple I did Tiffany blue, China Glaze For Audrey on all my nails but my ring finger.
On my ring finger I used Julep Daisy. This is an in your face sunshine yellow, perfect for my lil chick.
I also used Daisy for my dots. I used a med. and small dotting tool.
I am kind of bummed, although I did do layers of my white Sally Hansen White on about three for my chick’s shell…my yellow still bled through.
For my chick’s face I used my dotting tool along with Julep Sasha for the tiny triangle nose.
Then I used Wet n Wild Black Creme for the lil eyes.
So adorable.

More spring pastels!!!
I am just willing spring to come at this point.
5 fingers = 5 different Julep colors. I love all these beautiful colors, therefore I couldn’t pick just one.
I got these all in March.
They get me every time; first my March It girl box and then access to the secret store…ahhhhh.
Boy Julep is a master polish pusher…I am not strong enough to pass up the deals, ha!
Colors are as follows:
Soft grass green Courtney
Buttery yellow cream Sally
Lilac purple Renee
Orange dream Teri
Sky blue Susie
What do you think…is a different color on each nail too much?? I think it works for this time of year.

Btw I got a new light box from Ikea over spring break. I am loving IT!!! My homemade one was just not cutting it.

Got some pastel nails to share this time. These two colors are from the Sinful Colors SugarRush collection.
Got these two from Walgreens for just 99cents each a month ago.
On my ring finger I have a soft orange pastel called Orange Cream and the rest of my nails I used Candy Coated a soft lilac color.
I used opposite colors on my left hand.
To add some fun I played with my dotting tool on my ring finger. I need to practice using my dotting tools more…I love the look but find the technique very challenging.

We are having spring snow showers here in Iowa today, will it ever end??

Happy SPD!!!! I have a non-green manicure tonight πŸ˜‰
This post will be short and sweet. After my rainbow manicure I needed simple nails. I picked a springy color, China Glaze Surreal Appeal.
This color is gorgeous. It’s from the Cirque De Soleil: Worlds Away Collection.
This is a simple coral pink cream polish. I absolutely love it!!! If you don’t have it yet go get it.

Warning this mani is OvEr ThE ToP!! It looked so cool in my head.
I wasn’t going to post it BuT…it’s πŸ€πŸ€ St Patty’s weekend and this holiday is all about OvEr ThE ToP!!
So here are my Somewhere over the rainbow there’s a pot of GOLD nails. πŸ˜‰
Thumb, ring and middle fingers are my rainbow.
I used makeup applicators and a dotting tool to apply my polish.
Colors used:
Red- Sally Hansen Red Carpet
Orange- Claire’s Little Dipper
Yellow- Sally Hansen Sunny Side
Green- China Glaze Running in Circles
Blue- Sinful Colors Ciao Bella
No room for purple…
On my ring finger I just had to try Julep’s Lucky.
My pinky is my gold, Julep’s Vivien. My daughter convinced me I needed a pot so I added a black tip to my pinky.
I know it’s too much but hey it is kinda fun.

Hello all, hope this week is treating you all well.
Today I’ll show you my sinfully green nails.
They are almost too green, looks like I have slime on my nails πŸ™‚ But hey it’s all in the name of festive nails.
So I started with my Sinful Colors Irish Green polish. This is a bright neon green semi jelly polish. I do suggest you have underwear with this polish or you may end up with several coats for good coverage. I used Julep’s Rebel for my underwear.
Once my Irish Green was dry, I added another Sinful Colors polish Green Ocean, 2 coats. This is a green jelly polish with teal/green Mylar flecks. Green Ocean is pretty rad looking in the sunlight. I am so happy to see sunlight today. Super excited that spring is right around the corner. I cannot wait for winter to be gone!!

I did this manicure over the weekend. This is my attempt at “almost” spring nails. The almost spring part comes from the green polish with black and silver glitters.
This is another 3:2 mani…three nails (thumb, middle and ring) are Sinful colors Slate. A medium grey polish with a frost like finish. Slate represents my winter blahs…we are still getting snow here in Iowa. I don’t know about you but I am just longing for green grass and flowers!! Which is why I added on my pinky n pointer fingers mint GREEN.
First I started with a good base of Ory Jealous,much?. This is a pretty mint cream polish. For some fun I added Hard Candy’s gummy green. This is a mint milky looking green with what looks like black, grey and silver glitters. I think of a robins egg when I look at gummy green.
