The Lacquer Ring – Holographic Pink

We’re at it again, this time it was my turn to pick! For our color collaboration I asked the girls to do a Holographic Pink look, or as a last resort if they didn’t have a holo pink, I asked them to do a ‘bright ass pink’ look. hehe I am keeping the nail art¬†collab a secret so hopefully the other girls don’t spill the beans. ūüôā

As I mentioned in my other post Frosso from Lacquer me Silly, Amy from The Fancy Side, and I met up in NYC and did some damage with some new Cirque polishes! I had one I was gonna use but I decided to use the one I got that day since I got it with two of the TLR girls. I give you Cirque’s PowWow.

I painted two coats of PowWow and stamped PUEEN37 using Darling Diva’s Diamond. I think this is like the third look I did with this silver holo, I’m in love but not as much as I am with this pink.

I hope you enjoyed my color pick and make sure you check out the other girls pink looks.

Stamping Saturday – Memorial Day

I know.. I know.. I am very late in posting my SS look this week! :/ As I mentioned in my other post my sister is visiting, and today she came over to help me garden. I went to Lowes and got some edging rocks to match what I already have out front and some bags of dirt… well my Stepdad went with me and they dropped a brick on his truck and scratched it and¬†I felt Terrible!!! ūüė¶ My sister¬†and I planted the butterfly bush and lilac bush I picked up last weekend! I love it ūüôā I’ve also been pretty sick the last couple of weeks so I apologize for the lack of posts recently¬†. :/

 

Although Memorial Day is so much more than just the un-official start to Summer, I did some festive nails for the occasion. I painted two coats of Nina Ulta Pro’s Cobalt and then Darling Diva’s Home of the Brave. I then stamped Ulta’s Snow White using my¬†Red Angel stamp¬†RA319.

This glitter topper is so special and I saved it just for this occasion! This is one of Darling Diva’s ‘Cause’ polishes. 100% of the proceeds from this purchase goes to the DAV in her fathers honor as he is a¬†Vietnam Veteran. I absolutely love this topper and love how special it is to her, which makes it special to me. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but my husband was in the Army and he went to Iraq twice.¬†I am also involved in my local American Legion where we give back to the community and give back to our Veteran and Active Duty families, those serving overseas, Homeless Veterans, Disabled Veterans, etc. like this. The polish is $10.00 and can be found here¬†

So while you are having your BBQ’s this weekend and celebrating the un-official start to summer, please take the time to remember those who have died for our Freedom. Happy Memorial Day everyone.

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?

Picture 186Picture 187Picture 184

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!! ūüôā

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.

Textured Tuesdays – Cosmo in the Morning

For most of you that have been following my blog for a while know that you don’t see many textured looks here… I have never been a big fan. My polish girls, Lesley, Amy, Jess, Nic, Sib, Fross, and Cynthia¬†finally talked me in to it and now I have quite a few in my collection; So far mostly Zoyas and a couple of OPI’s.

Amy from The Fancy Side has decided to start a new theme on Tuesday’s for anyone interested and it’s called Textured Tuesdays. Head on over to her blog to add your¬†nails to¬†the link¬†every Tuesday.

I wasn’t able to participate in week¬†1 so this is week 2. I did Zoya Cosmo on all fingers and accented one nail with OPI’s 4 in the Morning.
