NOTD – Tangerine Easter Beanz

Whoa, I know I am posting in the middle of the week, can you believe it! I’ve been so busy posting for our weekly Stamping Saturday is about all I’ve been able to handle. I’ve painted my nails and have lots of looks to show you.

Today I have some Easter nails for you using Jessica Banana Peel and Tangerine Dreamz. I stamped Catrice’s Heavy Metallilac  using plate Wistonia W212.

I still need some help from Cynthia on the gradient, but I think it turned out okay… what do you think?

I wanted my nails to resemble when you are dying eggs and you dip one half the egg in one color and the other in another, I somewhat achieved my look. I’m not 100% sold on my gradient with this, it needs work.

I got this whole Jessica Gelato Mio set so I will be doing some other looks shortly with the other colors!! :)

See you Saturday for SS!

Stamping Saturday – Purple Zebra

Sorry this turned in to Stamping Sunday.. I painted my look on Friday night and ran some errands Saturday.. before I knew it I had to leave for a benefit that I had planned to attend last night. I let the girls know I’d be late and so here I am. Stamping Saturday / Sunday.

I painted two coats of Darling Diva’s Dangerous Driver using MoYou Stamp Back to the 80s 04 and Zoya Carter. My accent nail has two coats of Zoya Carter all topped with Seche.

Stamping Saturdays – A Fresh Mojito

Sorry I haven’t been on since last week, busy weeks here. :/ I am back for an all new Stamping Saturday for you today!

This is two coats of Nubar’s Spirit Walker. I stamped using my MoYou Explorer Collection – 6 plate. For my ring finger and thumb (not shown) I used a gradient look with Colors by Llarowe’s Mojito and ILNP’s A Fresh Evergreen for the turtle stamp. The rest of the nails I just used A Fresh Evergreen.

Here are the other girls SS looks.

 

Stamping Saturdays – A Sailors Oasis

I know I am late the rest of the girls have their SS looks up already, but I'm here, I have mine!! Busy, but awesome day today!

I did two coats of Essie’s Find me an Oasis and then stamped Orly’s Sweet Peacock using my new MoYou plates. I used The Sailor Collection plate 7. :)

I absolutely love how light and springy Find me an Oasis is, the metallicy blue of Sweet Peacock just pops on top of it, its pretty amazing… lolPicture 142

Textured Tuesday Sunshine

This is our last Textured Tuesday so I wanted to show you one of my favorite texture polishes, this is Zoya Sunshine. I topped it with one of my new MoYou stamps using China Glaze Sea Spray, since I missed out on this weeks Stamping Saturday :(

I just love how the texture shows the gorgeous pixie glitter, and the stamp looks almost matte overtop the texture. :)

 

Well that’s all for me today I promise I will have a post ready for Stamping Saturday this week, and possibly one in between <3

Don’t forget to take a look at the other girls last TT below.

Quick NOTD

I was able to schedule my Stamping Saturday look before my trip but didn’t have time to do Textured Tuesday this week. :( Don’t forget to check out Amy’s blog for everyone elses look.

I did these nails at my sister’s I used Essie’s no prenup as a base, one coat. Then I painted free hand the diagonal blue shape using Salon Perfect Baby Blues. Once fully dry I stamped the fish net design over the blue only using Sinful Colors Blackest Black, finally outlined it with the same black free-handed with a nail art brush.

I tried to get more pictures with my camera once I got home since this was taken with my phone, but it chipped just as I was going to, and I don’t have this blue :(

Until next time… :)

NOTD Stamping Saturdays – Ruby swirls

As I write (Thurs) this I am anxiously awaiting my trip tomorrow (Friday) I am surprising my sister, she has no idea (hopefully). It was my nephews 1st birthday two weeks ago (I know, I cannot believe it!) and so her husband, my brother-in-law is helping me coordinate my trip. I leave Friday morning and get there about lunch time through Sunday very late I think I take off there around 8. So as you are reading this today (Saturday) I am in NC for the weekend, so I wanted to get this post up and ready in time to not miss this weeks Stamping Saturday. :)

This is two coats of China Glazes Ruby Pumps stamped with this neat swirly design (sorry I forgot to write down the plate # for you) using China Glaze’s Liquid leather.

These pictures do NOT do this look justice at all… the red in the pictures looks much brighter than it actually is, and the shimmer beneath the black stamp is just, I can’t even take it. I cannot stop staring at my nails!

This second picture is the closest depiction of this gorgeous red but again still not doing it justice enough.
