Eck spiders!!!!  I am super scared of spiders, so this is a perfect Halloween mani for me.

My two identical nails are my index and middle.  For these I used glitter base Square Hue Night Fever.  In black I stamped on spiders from MM11 Messy Mansion plate.  Then I used Wet n Wild Floral Support a jelly red over the top of the stamp.  These are the same polishes I used on my thumb but I used a Bundle Monster black widow stamp instead from bundle Monster BM-XL208.

My ring and pinky fingers have a Square hue black base called Iron Horse.  On my ring I added Night Fever glitter and stamped on a white spider web from Pueen Halloween Party 01 plate and a black spider from bundle monster plate BM-013.

On my pinky I added another spider web and spider from BM-H07.

The glitter glitz with the spiders is a fun twist on a scary Halloween mani.

This nail of the day is a dark romantic look.  I used three colors to get this look along with some stamp layering.  On my thumb, index and little finger I used Square Hue Sierra Sunset.  Sierra Sunset is a dusty frosty dark rose red, so so beautiful.  On my middle and ring fingers I used a Square Hue dark grey called Y2K.  Playing with Pueen buffet plate 80 I added rose images in the opposite color to start with and then to add another layer I added another rose image using Konad black stamping polish.  I really love these black rose nails, my only wish is that my camera would pick up the complexity of this manicure.  But you get the idea…enjoy!

Hey Polish lovers!!!  Long time right, wow!!  Thanks to the Zoya Summer line of polish I finally got inspired to do some nail art!

I ❤ love ❤ Zoya Dixie from the summer sunsets collection;  Dixie is a one coater watermelon red.  Def got lots of compliments on this color and it is perfect for summer toes!!

But to add a lil zen vibe I added a few quick stamps.  First using Zoya Ziv a fab gold I did some zen flowers stamps from bundle monster plate Around the World BM-XL151.  To add more depth using Konad black I added another fab stamping image from Around the World plate BM-XL155.  I absolutely love how these finished out, the double stamping gives my nails a lot of depth and that pop of gold against Dixie is too die <3.

Very Zen indeed.

Hope to post more frequently as I have my nailspirations!!  Have a great 4th!  PS can’t wait for RWB nails–my fav color combo!

Often my manicures reflect the seasons or holidays.  This mani reflects April showers bringing May flowers.  And wow I can’t wait for the May flowers.  Bring on warm weather.

This is a 3:2 look.  The 3 nails are my April showers.  The showers are two colors sponged on the nail using SquareHue mint green Duval Street on the bottom part of the nail closest to the tip and sky blue St John on the cuticle side.  I was thinking rain and grass.  Then using Konad white and Bundle Monster plate BM-S229 I stamped on a stormy/windy cloud image.

The 2 nails are my flowers.  For this look I sponged on two pinks and a sherbet orange.  The pinks are SquareHue Eiger and Mallory Street and the orange is also SquareHue Temple Bar.  I was thinking this is a perfect combo to stamp flowers over.  Using the same Bundle Monster plate I stamped on a flower image using Konad black.  Then I added a Northern Lights holo top coat over the 2 flower nails.

This is cute… although it looked better in my mind.

Hope you get to enjoy some May flowers soon!!

Hey polish lovers!

I have another Vday mani to share with you this time.  When you see it you will say Ooh Lala 🙂

First I started with Zoya Brittany on all my nails.  Brittany is a rose mauve creame color which if you apply no top coat it dries in a Satin finish.  The satin finish is a semi matte look, which is very pretty but you won’t see that satin look in my final pics because I added a top coat after I did my stamping.  I picked Brittany because I wanted a softer pink nude base so my lip smacking stamping would really pop.

For my stamping I used Bundle Monster plate 303 and XL 153.  My stamping polish is China Glaze Dune Our Thing which is a bright berry pink.  It stamped really well.  Also used my go to Konad black.

On my littlest nail and ring finger I just did one lip smack.  On the other three nails I did the multi lip smack.  And for fun on the middle and thumbs I added Ooh Lala image in black.

I really ❤ love ❤ how this mani turned out.  Super cute for a Valentine themed look.

 

Happy polishing!  Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Hey polish lovers!  I am BACK!!  I have been training for a new job and it has been exhausting; I just couldn’t bring myself to get back on the computer to blog after a long day at work.  It kinda just sucked the creative flow right out of me.  But I am finally starting to feel like myself again and getting the creative juices going.  As far as the job goes; ehhhhh we will see.

Can you believe it is almost Feburary again, yowza?  That was a fast month!  Tonight I have a Pre Vday GLAM mani to show you all.   I did these last night and feel like I finally have cute enough nails to share with the world.

This is a 3:2 mani.  I usually do 3:2 mani when I can’t decide on just one look.

On my thumb, middle and pinky I did Zoya Trixie.  Trixie is a ultra metallic foil silver.

On my ring and index fingers I used Zoya Mae.  Mae is a magenta pink which is almost shimmery.

Then over all my nails I added Square Hue Night Fever.  Night Fever is a super holo glitter top coat.  Love this glitter.

Now for the stamping, ready to feel the love?  Over my Mae nails I did roses from Pueen roses from plate 80 using Konad black stamping polish.  Over my Trixie nails I stamped on hearts using Pueen plate 55 using Konad black stamping polish.

I really love this look.  The glitter under the stamping really takes this look from cute to glamourous.

Happy polishing!

Nail Diary #370

Merry Christmas Eve friends!!  I can’t tell you how excited I am for this weekend.  It has been a great day so far; snuggles on the couch with my cute little family.  Now I am just getting settled in my mani cave to watch the movie The Holiday and stamp over my matte green nails.

But first I wanted to share my Christmas nails from last week.  I loved this look so much that I wore it all week.  That has to be some sort of holiday nail record for me.

Colors used for my look are:

Square Hue hot stuff red called Bird Fling on my thumb, index and middle fingers.  This might be my new favorite red creme.  It goes on like a dream and is oh so high gloss, love it!   My Ringer finger base is Zoya Genesis as state on Zoya Website Genesis by Zoya can be best described as a crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish – designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust! Such a perfect base for Christmas nail stamping (ignore my shrinkage–I have a love hate relationship with seche vite fast dry top coat).  My littlest fingers are China Glaze This is Tree-Mendous, a lovely green/gold micro glitter that dries a lot like a pixie dust would.

About the nail stamping:

On my thumb I stamped on an ugly Christmas sweater image from Bundle Monster plate BM-S215 using Konad white.

On my index finger I did Candy cane stripes from BM-022. ❤

On my middle finger we have Rudy; used BM-Ho1 with Zoya Desiree and of course I dotted on a red nose using the red previously mentioned above and some black eyes.

And there you have it.  Random skittle Christmas nails.  I got lots of compliments on my nails at my new job; they are starting to figure out that I love nail art 🙂

You guys have a joyous holiday.
