Stamping Saturdays #fightforlightandlive

Hey guys! It’s Stamping Saturday! Feels like forever since I’ve done this since I missed last weeks! Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten to do my CND Vinylux review I’ve just been busy since we got back from vacation working on the new blog. Have you checked out the new Facebook page? Also if you notice I got my own dot com, revamped the layout and Esther and I worked on creating my very own custom Header for both! (She’s really reasonable if you are in the market for one yourself or any other graphic needs!) I’m so excited! 😀

I got some stuff over at Lacquer Me Silly’s Blog Sale and I think my favorite thing that I got was a special surprise pick from Frosso herself (I think Margo really picked it out) 😉 It’s KB Shimmer’s The Dancing Green! Wait till you see how gorgeous it is! This polish couldn’t have come at a better time! 🙂

With the sudden loss of America’s beloved Robin Williams there is finally more light being shown on Mental Health of all kinds. It hits very close to home for me as several very close family members suffer from different types of depression. On FB and Instagram there is a green mani day to show your support and help raise awareness for Depression/Mental Health. You can see the details here. My hope is that people suffer from depression seek help. It is so hard sometimes to realize how bad your depression has gotten the deeper you go, just remember you always have support and there is NO shame in seeking help! PLEASE DO!

 

My Mental Health Awareness mani for #fightforlightandlive is one light coat of Milani’s Fresh teal with two coats of KB Shimmer’s The Dancing Green. I also stamped PUEEN41 using Sephora Formula X’s Pedal to the Medal

So what do you think of this gorgeous green? Will you be showing support and helping to raise awareness for Mental Health this Sunday 8/17/14 ?

Don’t forget to check out my blog sale, I added about 50 new polishes! Once I am done swatching the Nordic set I just might be putting some of them up too! 😉

 

NOTD 121 – Spring is almost here!

Wednesday is the first day of Spring and of course my Bestie Gina’s Birthday! She recently made me this amazing Spring wreath that I get to put up this week.

Gina is extremely crafty, talented, and altogether creative. She started making wreaths and came up with the name Creative-Twists. She makes amazing wreaths, anything custom from sports teams, to Seasons or Holidays, anything you can think of she can do (If you remember my Nightmare Before Christmas one I showed.) Gina’s shore house was devastated by Hurricane Sandy this past October so all proceeds are going toward her shore house. If anyone is interested in a fabulous custom wreath check her site out, she is amazing! She will work with you to fit your price, needs, ideas, and if out-of-state, shipping will obviously apply. Check out her site and contact her now!

I also got another Hello Kitty sign made by a friend of ours, Angela, this one is Spring related. I picked her up over the weekend too and put her in the garden. How stinkin cute is she!!

Okay, now on to my nails. With Wednesday being spring, and seeing my flowers start to sprout, I did a Spring themed mani. I used two thick coats of “Ulta – Cream of the Crop” and then one coat of “Milani – Fresh Teal” over top. “Fresh Teal” has a bunch of green, teal, and silver hexagonal glitter pieces, and then a bunch of teal small glitter pieces.

Day 29 Supernatural – 31Challenge

The Challenge is almost over! 😦 I have to wonder, will I lose inspiration after this, not having defined for me what to do each day… I sure hope not 😛

I did some searching around, to see what others did for their Supernatural Day. I saw some Vampires, Werewolves, Ghosts.. and I that got me thinking… I didn’t want to do just any old ghost. So I did Zero and Oogie Boogie from one of my favorite movies, “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. Now in some arguments Oogie could be a stretch, but I think he’s kind of a ghost in a sense, he’s somewhat Supernatural so he fits, if not, I am bending the rules 😀

For Oogies coloring, I went for more of the Glow in the Dark Oogie Green, for when he glows in the dark in the movie, and I used a mixture of “Milani NEON – Fresh Teal”, “Julep – Sophia”, “Milani – White” and “Orly – Lucky Duck” and then “Sinful Colors – Blackest Black”

for Zero I used “Milani – White”, “Sinful Colors – Blackest Black”, “E.l.f. – Medium Red” for his collar, and “Essie – Vermillionaire” for his Pumpkin nose.

The base color for all of the nails is “OPI – Planks A Lot”
