Did I Dye It Too Blonde

8 Oct

Happy Monday to you, world! I’ve not painted my nails again. After posting the Leap Flog mani I did not like my broken nail so I’ve not painted them. Instead, I’ll be posting a mani I forgot to post about. For the longest I’d see everyone doing the neon yellow mani.  Boy, did I want to. But again, with my skin tone, I was hesitant and scared. 🙂 Then one day I just said “DO IT!” and I did. here is Spoiled’s “Did I Dye It Too Blond”. I first did one coat of Sinful Color’s “Snow Me White”. Neon yellows tend to be sheer. So after the white dried, I did about 2-3 coats per nail. I hope you try a neon yellow!

 

Neon Gradiant

11 May

Happy Friday to you! I’m calling today’s mani FUN FRIDAY. 🙂 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. 🙂

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. 🙂

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. But we both have 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. 🙂

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!
