I took my last manicure and added a fun fall stamp using bundle monster plate BM-S206.  I actually layered a couple images using Bundle Monster Straight Up Black stamping polish and Square Hue red Campo San Moise.  Every nail is different, love these fall story nails.  AWE NUTS Mr Squirrel is my favorite!  I did add a matte top coat to finish.

Here is another pretty fall inspired manicure.  Colors I blended together are OPI Burning Love and SquareHue Sandstone.  I know I know I just used these colors in a water marble.  But sometimes those creations inspire other manicures.  Using my makeup sponge I blended these colors together to make a gorg fall sunset/sunrise manicure.  Love this combo. ❤

A few weeks back I had some time to kill so I attempted to water marble.  Colors I marbled are for a fun fall look are:

  • VINTAGE OPI Burning Love; a metallic orange
  • Finger Paints Fall-ing for you; a metallic teal
  • Square Hue Baby,Baby,Baby; a metallic grape (which appears lighter in the marble)
  • Square Hue Sandstone; a shimmery duo pink/gold hue
  • My undies is Sally Hansen Petal Pusher; a nude pink

To simplify the marble process I used a Pueen Latex tape barrier…ahhhhhhMazing!  Total time saver.  I feel like my marble turned out ahhhhh so so.  I have done worse; I have also done better.  I guess I need to keep practicing; with the latex barrier I may be so inclined to do so.

I don’t often get that excited about my nail art.  But this turned out so perfect; I am in love!  I bet you FALL in love also ❤

Started with a retro OPI polish called DS GLOW, Glow is a golden brown almost copper foil like polish.  It is a perfect back drop for some fall stamping.

Last week I splurged an ordered a couple Pueen stamping plates so I was super excited to try one out.  Using Pueen Nature Lover plate 01 I stamped on some autumn leaves using Konad black stamping polish.  This alone was really pretty but a while back I picked up some Wet n Wild jelly (Candy gloss nail tint) polish from Walgreens so I though why not give the lead light technique a try, jellies are perfect for this type of manicure.  Wet n Wild jellies are Floral Support the red and One Grape or Another is the purple.  I didn’t have a green Wet n Wild jelly so I used my Zoya Frida for a teal green leaf.  I just used my dotting tool and filled in the leaves with the jelly polish.  The jelly polish is a tint so it dries perfect within the lines of the stamp.

Ooooh em geeeeeee forgive me but I LOVE how these turned out.

I did not get a proper pic in the sun; but it is just absolutely gorge in the sunlight.  Glow shimmers under the jellies ❤

Hello November goodbye October.  I totally missed the end of October mani’s.  I missed about three Halloween festive nail looks.  I think in the next week or so I will do a throw back to October entry, lol.

Tonight I have a beautiful fall like water marble to share with you.  I really love this color combo.

My underwear color is China Glaze Innocence a pale nude pink perfect for a blank canvas.

Colors in my marble are:

OPI NYPD Beat a deep beat red and Burning Love a shimmering gold orange.

OPI Nicole colors Here we Kome A-Karoling a deep plum purple, Keeping up with Santa a foil like red and Deck the Dolls a metallic teal.

The effect is oh la la love this!!  My favorite colors are Burning Love and Deck the Dolls!!

Enjoy.  And if you haven’t tried water marbling I suggest you do try it, it is so fun to create new looks with different random colors.  It takes some practice and patience but once you master it you will be so happy!

Happy polishing!

Hello polish lovers.  I don’t know about you but sometimes I just can’t decide on one color to paint my nails let alone two.  For this particular mani I couldn’t decide on any one color so I used five different shades; this is what they call a skittle manicure.  For these nails I knew I was going to the Breaking Benjamin concert so I wanted something edgy, dark, mysterious but with some bling.  So I used mostly dark colors and textures with a pop of color and glitter.  I really love how these turned out.

Here we go:

On my thumb I used OPI black satin 4 in the Morning.  Love this satin black, it is so sexy.  Leave it to Gwen’s polish line to be dark and sexy.

On my index finger I used OPI black liquid sand Emotions.  No words for this textured polish it is one of my all time favs.

My middle finger is base of SquareHue Times Square a silver holo polish with OPI In True Stefani Fashion on top a divine holo chunky glitter.  It shines so bright.  If this polish don’t attract attention I don’t know what will.

My ring finger is a matte finish Zoya Loredana a gunmetal grey.

Last but not least my NEW favorite red is on my little nail, Zoya Sooki.  This is a True Blood red polish.  I love Sooki to death!!!

I really love this rocking manicure.  It was the perfect combo for a rock show.

Happy polishing!
