Cute Winter Manicure using MoYou Scandi 10 Stamping plate!

Howdy all!  I said I’d be back soon!  I really really love how my current mani turned out!  MoYou makes some very interesting and pretty plates and the Scandi collection by them is no exception!  I used a whole bunch of polishes for the reverse stamping such as… Zoya August (as a base color and for the stamping), Merida, Bevin, and Wyatt(For the trees)… Essie Coconut Cove and Mochacino(For stamping and filling in the mountains), Cirque Colors Storm King (For the clouds), and Sinful Colors Unicorn for the sun.  Reverse stamping is time consuming, but it is SO worth the work in the end!  Check out the pictures below!

What do you think of this mani?  Is this something you would try?  Thank you all for reading and subscribing to my blog. It really does mean a lot to me!

Where I’ve Been and some past NOTD’s!!!

Hi all!!! Phew… Sorry for my hiatus.  I’ve been pretty sick the past 2 weeks and am still trying to get over whatever this is.  I’ve not been doing very many manicures because I’ve been too exhausted/tired from coughing like crazy.  My whole body is sore from it!  My Dr. said I didn’t have pneumonia or bronchitis (she listened to my chest) but she prescribed me antibiotics to prevent anything from getting worse.  After looking online and studying about bronchitis and pneumonia I’ve learned that antibiotics don’t help bronchitis but they do pneumonia.  I don’t have a fever or anything… just a cough that produces a ton of mucus and makes it really hard to breathe.  Anywho… I done a little bit of nail-art and manicures throughout my sickness so I figured I would share them!  Check them out below!

As you can tell.. my nails are round now.  I just find them easier to deal with than squares.  For the first look I shared (the cacti one) I used MoYou Hipster 16 stamping plate, and Pahlish Unwound Future and Snapdragon.  The second photo is Pahlish Pompadour, and the last picture is a colorblock manicure I done yesterday (or the day before yesterday) with Cirque Storm King, China Glaze Make an Entrance, and Salon Perfect Nine Lives.  I hope you enjoyed this post!!! Stay tuned tomorrow, I have a new MoYou London stamping plate I’m going to play with tonight and I’ll share the nail-art with you all once it’s done!

NOTD- Il Etait Un Vernis Teach Me Tonight

Hi all!!! *Waves* Ugh, it feels like forever since I’ve posted!  I have a few posts to share with you in the next few days.  Lately I’ve been craving vampy deep colors because you know… Fall is here.  I sifted through my bin of 100’s of polishes and pulled out Teach Me Tonight by Il Etait Un Vernis.  I bought this polish about 6 or 7 months ago, but am just now getting around to wearing it.  I think I tried it on when I first got it, but my camera wouldn’t cooperate for photos so I took it off.  Now that I have a really good lighting set up, I figured I’d give it another go and see what happened with the pictures.  All I have to say is wow!!!  I can’t believe how well my camera picked up the red shimmers in the deep blackened purple base along with the scattered holo.  This morning I decided to try and make my mani a little bit more fancy by making some half moons and adding glitter along the line.  I really love how this turned out! First let’s look at the polish itself.
Isn’t this color stunning?!  Of course… Knowing me, I can’t just leave it there. I have to change it somehow or do nail-art with it lol.
What do you think of the nailart?  I know my hand pose is weird there.. But I was too lazy to set up my tripod and everything.  Would you try this look?  Stay tuned for some gorgeous shades that Pahlish is releasing this Sunday coming up.  Talk to you all soon!

NOTD: Sexy Lace featuring Picture Polish Eerie and Orchid

Hi all!  Picture Polish is holding a contest on their Instagram and I decided to participate.  The theme was lace.  There are already so many beautiful designs showing up and I have no idea how Jules and her team are going to pick winners!  Everyone done such an amazing job 🙂  The rules stated that you have to use 2-5 Picture Polish shades.  One of the photos had to show the nail-art with the bottles and the other photo a stand-out of the nail art itself.  I thought about using my lace panties as a prop(not on me!), but decided not to because that would be too risky lol.  Anywho… Pictures down below!
What do you think of this look?  For the stamping I used hehe Fairytale 02 stamping plate.  I really love how this turned out 🙂 Thanks so much for reading!  If you want to see my post on IG here’s the link!  Talk to you all soon!

Fun Cut-out Lace Manicure featuring Picture Polish Gala!

Hi everyone!  I saw some cute nail-art that nailthatdesign on IG did and I decided to recreate it.  My  Moyra stamping plates (I only own 2) have been collecting dust so I decided to pull out my Lace one from them and give it a whirl.  This look is sooo fun!  I filed the tops of my nails to get rid of staining I had (I know, I know it’s really bad for you to do that) so I could do a negative space look with the lace.  I put down a coat of my Nailtiques Formula 2 base coat (it has proteins in it that strengthens your nails), and then a coat of top coat, and then I stamped on top.  To get the crisp lines I used What’s Up Nails Wide Straight Tape.  Gala is so opaque that it covered the lace in nearly one coat!
What do you think of this look?  Is this something you would wear?  Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!!!
