Happy Friday the 13th!  OK I am not superstitious, are you?  I mean I have a black cat so this day doesn’t put me at ill ease {knock on wood, lol}.  But just in case I will opt out of walking in the woods alone tonight, jk.

I am really getting geared up for spring to come to Iowa.  All this week we have had beautiful sunny days, even the pup is in heaven.  Walks every night, sitting out on the deck sigh…now if the grass would go back to green life would be grand.

For me spring weather equals spring manicures.  I got the Zoya Spring 2015 Delight collection a few weeks back (as a birthday present to myself, lol).  I just haven’t been in the mood to have cheerful spring nails yet.  Well that all changed this week.  I decided to go with the most unconventional color in the set for me personally.  Because I don’t typically wear yellow nails.  IMO yellow looks better on darker skin tones, typically yellow makes me look even pinker than I am.  But Zoya Daisy had me intrigued and I just had play.  Daisy is a lemon yellow polish with a teal shimmer in just the right light, what a beauty.  In my mind I wanted yellow nails and colorful butterflies.  So Daisy was my canvas for my butterflies.  Using my Bundle Monster plate BM-718 and my Bundle Monster creative art special stamping polishes Optical Illusion purple and no name pink.  I did some duo color stamping.  Basically instead of adding one color on the image plate I added the two and poof you have pretty pink and purple butterflies on your nails.  I also used my Maybelline teal Day Glow teal to add a few teal butterflies just to try to pull out that teal flash in Daisy.

I think these turned out pretty cute.  Really helped to put an extra spring in my step this week 🙂  I hope you have a grand weekend.  oh and today is the first day of spring break for my daughter, lucky girl.  I was so jealous I decided I must take a few days off next week to have some much needed family time.

Happy polishing!

Nail Diary #273

May 30, 2014

TGIF finally friday; why is it the shorter weeks take the longest?  I love Fridays because I love the weekends with my cute little family.  This weekend we are taking a mini road trip to the Omaha Zoo.  My daughter is extremely excited.  It will be nice to get away even it is only for one day.

So my next manicure inspiration was my upcoming mini road trip.  You would think I would have thought to do animal print nails; but my mind went straight to glitter.  If I am going to be out in the sun all day I need BLING and not just a little I need a lot of BLING!!

First I painted my nails with my new Maybelline Bleached Neon blue called Day Glow Teal.  The Bleached Neon line is a limited edition for Summer 2014.  I have only picked up two colors so far from this collection.  But I have to say this Bleached Neon polish is very pretty, it is a subtle neon look.  But I do have it on my toes as well and I really like this shade of teal.

Once Day Glow Teal dried I added my BLING, Zoya Vega and ahhhhhh I die.  If you don’t have Vega you really should consider buying it, especially if you love Pixie Dust.  Vega is a magical Pixie Dust that came out earlier this year.  It is a light blue with holo glitter particles.  This Pixie Dust is very textured, but so gorgeous.  In the sun it shines.

On my ring finger I used my nail vinyls for a fun chevron look.  I like how the Day Glow Teal peaks out from under Vega.  I did end up adding a clear coat over Vega to add more vivid sparkle.

Have you jumped on the textured polish wagon yet?  I have to say textured polish is really growing on me, especially when it sparkles this much.

Have a great weekend!
