Butler Please

18 Mar

LONG time no see Laquer addicts!

It has been an amazing journey since my last post. I have a 9 month old little boy who keeps me plenty busy. I was going through my blog, since it’s been a while since I’ve even opened it, and thought I’d share at least one mani I’ve done since then. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am painting a little here and there- Mostly when I am going through my sleep roller coasters and cannot sleep. I no longer have a good camera and cannot take micro shots or even good color matching shots. That has also been a reason for not posting or blogging in a while. But… I hope you are doing great and your digits are wonderfully colored. Let’s get this going!

Below is a mani I did for my sister. She had just bought this beautiful Essie in Butler Please at Target and wanted to put it to work right away. This cream polish was a beaut from the shelf and even better once applied to your beds. It was a bit streaky but evened out with a second coat and some SV. I “unsuccessfully” stamped her ring nail with Bundle Monster’s 221 plate and had to free-hand some of them. I was so happy with the outcome and so was she! I then took some gold studs and glued them and topped everything off with Essie’s Matte About You. ย I do wish I had her skin color. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s so hard to photograph my nails and get the right tones with polish and my skin.

Happy painting to you! Thank you for stopping by! Blessings! โค Sara


Interview Appropriate

29 Jun

Happy Friday world! I have an interview today! ๐Ÿ™‚ Please pray for me. I’m excited. I wanted to stay away from tips-very cliche’. So I opted for a clean calm color.

This is 2 coats ofย China Glaze’s “Fast Track” (of the Hunger Games Collection) and one coat of Essie’s “Matte About You”. I really like the outcome. The matte really makes the glitter go “pop!”ย These pictures are without flash. Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by and God Bless you! -Sara


Stone Cold- China Glaze Hunger Games

28 Mar

Hola! ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the second mani I did this week (painted them last night and wore today).

I reallly like Stone Cold. The only down side is it’s super thick and can be globby in application. This is a matte polish. I love it. But, i also thought the glitter in it should be more sparkly so I topped it with SV. I’m so glad I did, too. The color of the polish was just give some ooomph. I hope you like it!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚


Pumping Gas

27 Feb

Happy Monday to you… it’s late. ๐Ÿ™‚ I did my nails in a new color. It’s called Pumping Gas by Spoiled, a wet’n’wild brand. Again, the brushes are big and the bristles are heavy. Lot of clean up. But as for the color, i love the color. I did 2 coats of this and topped it off with my SV. At this moment, I did not notice that the i only eat salad green color i previously swatched had stained my skin. -_- sorry that it shows up. lol. But, the color is nice. Lol. ๐Ÿ™‚ I then decided to go matte. So I then topped that with Essie’s Matte About You. Yay!

So I then wanted to do a zebra stamp. Lots of steps tonight. I used BM-223, the zebra image. I decided to use another new color called I’m Ba-Roque. The outcome was nice.

Have a great week everyone! Thanks for stopping by. God Bless!

Conga Line

17 Feb

Hello All!

Today has been one of those days. I found out my email account was hacked into. I had to go delete it and change a lot of things, including password for this! And… in all the mess I didn’t get to write this one down. So it took me forever to figure out the new password here and then just recreate it. SIGH! But, I hope I’m safe now. I always freak out about stuff like that.

Anywho, I read earlier this month that orange (according to refinery29) is going to be a BIG hit this year in nail color. So, I have one that I have not posted… or used lately. So, today I am going to show you Confetti’s “Conga Line”. I love this color! I will post a few pictures of the polish with 2 coats and a coat of SV. Later I decided I wanted a matte. So I topped that with Essie’s “matte about you”. I am very happpy with this polish. I hope you like it! Go buy you a bottle of orange. ๐Ÿ™‚
