Butterflies

5 Sep

It’s a Pink Wednesday, Lacquer Lovers! 🙂 This will be a quick post but I hope you like the color. I love it!

I used Orly’s “Butterflies” which is a nice, thin/sheer pink. I had to use 3 coats and one coat of SV for me to like it. But, it’s very pretty. Here is Butterflies with no flash. Thanks for stopping by! Happy painting and Happy Wednesday! God Bless!

Funky Nails- Exhilarating

6 Jun

Hello world! I get to post! Yay! Sorry for the delay. I’m getting ready for my Pink Wednesday, tomorrow. 🙂

So, if you’ve ever visited the tab at the top of my blog “Blog Love”, this is where I list and link all the nail bloggers I have found inspiring and encouraging and have challenged me. Awesome bloggers! Well, one of those, Funky Frenchie Nails has moved. Her new blog is here, at Funky Nails. She has been my mother’s best friend for more than 20 years. She was there when I was born and her son is maried to my little sister. 🙂 She has asked me to swatch her first collection! Her brand of polish is called Funky Nails. Eeks! I am SOOO excited to do this for her!

Here is the first of the “EVERY WOMAN” Funky Nails collection! This pretty pink thang is called Exhilarating
“Exhilarating is pink with pink and purple shimmer.”

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!

 

Pink Tribal attempt

25 Apr

Happy Wednesday to you! 🙂 I hope you had a great day. My day was productive and I feel joyous and so thankful for so many different things. The verse I read today reminded me to stay focused; to focus on God’s love and remain in His love. So awesome the outcome when you set your heart and your mind on God. <3Today’s post is one I was not happy to post about, at all. It was my first attempt at anything tribal, which is such a big hit in the nail world right now. I have a stamp, plate number BM-221 (bundle monster collection) and it has a somewhat tribal image on it. Since I was going with the Pink Wednesday theme, I used white. I then got the (at the time) brilliant idea to do some fun stuff with black. Let me say that the pink I’m using is a very pretty pink with purple shimmer highlighter. Although, it was given to me as a gift and I have no idea what the brand or name of the color is. But my stamp was with Sinful Color’s Snow Me White and then used my little “skinny” black polish to do me ever so-bright-idea accents.

I did not like the outcome and I’m lacking in the free-hand department. But as with anything, you’ll have hits and you’ll have misses. This, was definitely a miss. lol. I like it from far away, when you’re not really concentrating on perfect lines and neatness. lol. But oh well. I’m going to post because it’s Pink Wednesday and I’m too happy not to. 🙂 Have a great day! Thanks for stopping to see my terrible tribal nail. God Bless! -Sara

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! ❤
