Sponged Pink Wednesday

30 May

Happy Wednesday to you! 🙂 This will be a quick post. I sponged this mani last night. I wanted something floral and girly. So I used China Glaze’s “Naked”. It’s such a pretty pink, reminds me of the crayola “ticke me pink” but with glitter. lol. I sponged this color first. I then used Confetti’s “Belle of the Ball”, which is a nice pastel, springy purple. I always go back and use the first color to help blend the two together. It came out really nice. I then took my white “skinny” nail polish and did a “not so good” flower pattern on my ring fingers and thumbs. lol. But, I like it. 🙂 Have a great day! God Bless!

 

Blue Glitter Tip

26 Apr

I hope you all have a great Thursday! Today’s post is one of inspiration. Ever heard of a blog called The Nailasaurus? She does lovely nail work. My friend kept posting her stuff on Pinterest which is how I found her blog. You can check out her site, also where I got the idea for this mani, HERE. 🙂 *if anytime, you “copy” someone else’s work, give credit where credit is due. not that polish or any one desing actually belongs to anyone, not saying that. but I think everyone deserves their props and credit.* closing soap box. lol.

My base color is Ulta’s Blue Streak. I love this color! It’s such a bright and cheerful color. Although my photos came out lighter, this color is pretty blue. The Nailasaurus uses studs and lots of rhinestones for her manis. I’m not a stud gal but I do love me some hexi glitter, or glequins, as they now call them. 🙂 So I used Confetti’s Tazmanian Devil instead. It took me a while, this being my first attempt. So some of the glequins came out crooked. lol. Also, I use a headlight when doing my nails and it was kind of hard to make sure they were straight with all the reflection. Let me know what you think.

Dotted Rainbow

22 Apr

Happy Sunday to you! 🙂 Today is the day that the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it!

Today’s post is one of joy and gratitude. My heart is so full today! This is my first all dotted mani, ever! I have to say it was a challenge, especially trying to line up my dots. Some of them wound up touching. eek. lol. But overall, for my first try, I really like this one.  I hope you do too.

I started with 2 coats of my Sinful Colors “Snow Me White” and topped it with one coat of SV. I picked up my tool and went to work! I topped it off with one last coat of SV.  I’m adding a photo of all the colors together with my “color wheel” and tool. The names are listed on the bottles’ tops in white. You may have to zoom in. sorry. lol. Yay for rainbow dots! Have a great one! Thanks for stopping by!

 

Rise&Shine

13 Apr

Happy Friday to you Lacquer Addicts! 🙂 Today is the day that the Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glad in it! Amen! I hope you are off to a great start! Peace and blessings to you.

Today’s (first) post is actually being posted at 12:30AM. lol. I spent the evening with my husband, sisters and daddy. Painted one sister’s nails. Amazingly, her mani was almost an exact replica of my mother’s manicure. Like mother, like daughter. hee hee. She used Sinful Colors’ Rise and Shine and topped with a coat of Confetti’s Tazmanian Devil. Love it! 🙂 Here is her mani:

Raspberry Wednesday

12 Apr

Happy Pink Wednesday to you! I am glad to say that I had time tonight to paint and fix, sorta (lol), and photograph my mani. Yay! I posted this morning not knowing if I’d have time tonight. Please pray for my husband and me. Our allergies are really kicking us. He had a nose bleed with clotting today. My cough won’t go. It’s no fun. We’d appreciate it. 🙂

Tonight’s post is very very pink! My base coat was 2 coats of Revlon’s Raspberry Rapture; complete with raspberry “parfume”. hee hee. I topped with my SV. I then taped off my ring fingers, one at a time, and painted the outer half corners with Sinful Colors’ Snow Me White, another layer of SV. I taped off again and added a coat of Essie’s Cute As A Button. Another coat of SV. I still wanted more so I then added a coat of Confetti’s Pink Confetti, which is a glitter, and it was done. lol. Let me remind you, I am NOT good with the taping technique. You’ll see that enough in this post. lol. But I hadn’t tried it in a while and thought, WHY NOT? I hope you like all the pinks! All photos here are without flash. Thanks for stopping by and for your patience. God Bless! ❤
