4th of July tribute

6 Jul

Happy Friday to you! In my last post I said it’s never too late to do the good ol’ red , white and blue! Well, today my rhinestones came in! yay! Here is the picture of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I really wanted to use them. So i got just a little too creative and then put myself in a rut. See what came of my rut! I did all but my ring fingers based in Orly’s “Haute Red” which in my opinion is a hot as red polish can get! It’s the perfect shade. It’s a great one coater but I did two to be safe. I then did my ring fingers in Sinful Colors’ “Snow Me White” and topped them all of wtih SV.

I then used reinforcement label to do a half moon on my ring fingers with “Blue Sparrow” by China Glaze. That was a first for me. And let me say it was harder than they made it sound! My moon was quite edgy. lol. But then again, my skinny fingers don’t like to allow tape and stuff to properly adhere to them so… Yeah! I had to touch up. I then added 3 red rhinestones to each and freehanded some accents in red. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’ s the outcome!

Green Gradients

3 Jul

Happy Tuesday to you! I hope your day is going well. I haven’t been able to post since our computer is on the verge of running out of memory and was at the dr. office. My husband is a graphic designer so… yeah. We had to buy more space. Hopefully it’ll be ok now.

Today’s post is of last night’s mani. I really liked this one. I used new Orly polishes. I started with two coats of “Green Apple” and topped it with SV. I then used “Green With Envy” (which is not an envy color to me, at all) to sponge. Of course, you should always blend so I used a little more of the Green Apple. I did another coat of SV and using Sinful Color’s “Snow Me White”, I stamped with plate BM-209 and topped with SV. I hope you like it! It’s very fun! Both of these photos are with flash. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great one! God Bless and thanks for stopping by!

 

Neon Gradiant

11 May

Happy Friday to you! I’m calling today’s mani FUN FRIDAY. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been thinking of all the neon things I’ve seen and trying to think of something fun to do with my new Spoiled polishes. I found one! I decided to try a gradiant with a stamp! I’ve seen a lot of neon bases, mostly stripes, with crackle polishes that let the pretty colors come through, I’ve seen a lot of them use tape as well to let the color pop in. All very pretty. I wanted to use white. I hope you like the outcome. I was actually wow’ed with how bright it came out but luckily, I like it with my skin tone! Yay! Let me know what you think!

I started with Sinful Colors’ Snow Me White as a base to help pick up the actual color of the neons. If not, you won’t be able to pull this look off unless you can find a super opaque neon. I let it dry. I then took Spoiled’s pink color called “Tip Your Waitress“, the orange color called “Jail Bait” and the yellow called “Did I Dye It Too Blonde?” and sponged one color/row at a time until I liked the color. I then used BM-224, which my husband referred to as the girly alligator stamp, and stamped with Sinful Colors’ Snow Me White. Of course, I always top with SV.

I did alot of clean up since the sponging and stamping always will leave a mess. Sadly, I forgot to moisturize before taking the pictures (I was not a home for my mani and was rushing to get here. lol). So sorry if you see the after effects of acetone. ๐Ÿ™‚

Kickin’ The Habit

9 May

Hi everybody! I am doing 2 posts today, as you can see. My first was yesterday’s color and this post is for today’s color, which I did last night. I am behind in posting since my sleeping schedule has been all wacky and we’re always so busy. Right now is much needed down time for me. My husband is out for a bit and so the computer is free. ๐Ÿ™‚

This post is one that is going to show off my newly purchased Spoiled colors. I’ve been talking with a friend of mine about the bold highlighter yellow everyone is rocking. We both say “I want it so bad”. lol. Butย we both haveย naturally tan complection, being of hispanic ethnicity. I’m always scared of how bad this bold and beautifully bright color will clash with my skin tone. lol. She recently encouraged me to buy a gold polish, which is another I feel will clash with my skin, but we’re stepping out! lol. These 5 colors are all neons! Yellow, Orange, Purple, Pink and Green! EEEkkkssss! Pray for me to have courage. lol. That yellow one (being my favorite color) is really calling me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is a photo of all 5 colors! Left to Right, Pink to Green:
Tip You Waitress, Jail Bait, Kickin’ The Habit, Did I Dye It Too Blonde?, Permission To Proceed

I did two coats of the Kickin’ The Habit and then decided to free hand some accent lines. It’s been forever! It didn’t come out as good, but I love this purple! Thanks for stopping by! God Bless!

Jaded again

9 May

Happy Tuesday to you, Polish Addicts Anonymous. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you had a great day! I am thankful for the Lord’s unfailing love. And right now, I just had to share that with you. (Lots of smiley faces in this post. lol.)

Today’s post is one from a few nights back. I usually take the pictures and post them that night, but didn’t get to last night. We’ve been night owls for almost a month now. We’ve both been tired and out-a-wack. It’s funny but it’s tiring. My schedule right now, as far as sleep goes, is very lacking. So yeah. I did this mani Saturday night and wore it Sunday and Monday. ๐Ÿ™‚

I did 2 coats of Utla’s Jaded, which is a sheer green with a yellow shimmer powder and a duo-tone effect. I topped it with my SV. I then used BM-212, the “peacock” image is what my husband calls it. But to me, it just looks like little eyes everywhere. ๐Ÿ™‚ I stamped with Sinful Color’s Blackย on Black and topped it again with SV. And before taking my pictures, I smudged my middle finger. Grrr. You can slightly see it so I apologize for that one. ๐Ÿ™‚
