Stamping Saturday – May Flowers

It’s that time again, another edition of Stamping Saturday. I absolutely love the Spring and the Fall. What I love most about Spring are all of my flowers, shrubs, etc blooming and sprouting again, and all of the pretty insects that come along with Spring. You can have your mosquitos though.. lol

Today in honor of Spring since we had such a wacky winter here in NJ, I have a flower mani. I’m going to be honest though, I don’t like it… :/ I don’t know if it’s the color scheme or what but I’m not a fan and these will be coming off very shortly.. lol

I used two coats of Jessica’s Strawberry Shake it for the base. The purple flowers are using stamp Red Angel RA-308 and OPI’s Planks A lot, the pink ones are using Venique’s Flip Flop to the Beach. The other nails with the vines I used the same stamping plate and the green is Orly’s Lucky Duck with the same two flower colors just alternating. The center yellow was Zoya’s Darcy.

So what do you think? Any big plans this weekend?

Don’t forget this Thursday is the Lacquer Ring’s first bi-weekly challenge.

Here are the other girls Stamping Saturday looks

NOTD 47 – A Lucky Duck named Ziggy

This is the second mani that I have done recently with greens, pattern? hmm… I used “Orly – Lucky Duck” (2 coats) and topped it with “Urban Decay – Ziggy”. This top coat is a gold, purple/pink, green and blue glitter and unlike a lot of glitters, I only needed one coat of SV, the glitter did not eat the top coat which is good 😀

This is a picture from of Ziggy by itself. This is probably 2-3 coats.

I did only the one coat over Lucky Duck

Then here is one more picture a little close to see the full effect of the Ziggy glitter.

Day 30 Inspired by a Tutorial – 31Challenge

Good Morning Lovelies 😀 As for all the days of the challenges, I research to find the funnest designs to use for each days of the challenge. As soon as I am done the first day’s mani I am already thinking for the next couple of days what can I do fun for the next days challenge; this day was no different. I searched on google “Nails Inspired by a Tutorial” and came across a Splatter Mani Tutorial. How Fun! I Haven’t done that yet!! I found this on The PolishAholic’s Blog.

For this challenge, I used “Julep – Kelly”  for a base, “Orly – Lucky Duck” and “Essie – Vermillionaire” for the splatters. I followed The PolishAholic’s Tutorial that was super easy to follow, Fabulous! and can be found here.

I painted by base coat, which unfortunately requires two coats, I have found that the Juleps don’t dry as quickly, which is why I say unfortunately. I then took my green and orange and made about two drops of each onto a paper plate. Per the tutorial I used my straw and blew into the opposite end to make the splatters.

I absolutely love this mani and how cute it came out. It was to great to have come across such an easy tutorial to follow 😀

Here are my pics below:

So on a side note / rant… I was kind of upset at how some came out, I loved my thumbs the best how there were little tiny splatters. I liked the little splatters the best; but then I thought about it, and if you splattered paint on the ground the “real” way with a paint brush, you are going to get those big splatters too. I came to love the rest of the nails 😀 Hope you enjoy them too!

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”
