Stamping Saturday – Bejewled Tiger

I absolutely love this MoYou stamp, I am using it again. I used it a few weeks ago when The Lacquer Ring brought you our first collab post and I did my orange nails . This is two coats of Cirque’s Bejeweled which I absolutely LOVE and I stamped China Glaze’s Liquid Leather with the stamp overtop. I love how the holo shows through it.

Stamping Saturdays – Baby girl

Well no baby yet, but any day now! I don’t know if I told you guys or not but my brother-in-law and his fiancée are pregnant and my niece is due any day now! In honor of her arrival I did an overly girly manicure. She is being kind of stubborn so I was hoping that maybe this would help. Quite possibly she’ll arive tonight or tomorrow 😀

For this mani I painted two coats of Morgan Taylor’s Prettier in pink. Before I stamped, I also topped the pink with China Glaze’s Travel in Colour. I stamped Ulta’s Snow White using PUEEN36 stamp.

This is in my light-box

AS I TYPE this post, I just got the call that she’s finally been admitted! She’s been having contractions all week and they wouldn’t take her… AZ is very strange! WOOHOO the nails worked!!

Stamping Saturday – Aruba Diamonds

Sorry I’m late in posting again guys!! I met up with Frosso from Lacquer me Silly and Amy from The Fancy Side today for a little girls day out in NYC. We tore it up with some Cirque polishes which I can’t wait to show you!

Today I have a mani using Darling Divas Diamond holo and stamped with a MoYou stamp using Aruba Blue. I don’t have too many pics as I only got to take a little before I left and it chipped already :/

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!!! 😦 My sister and I planted the butterfly bush and lilac bush I picked up last weekend! I love it 🙂 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.

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

The Lacquer Ring – Unicorns Unite!

You have seen us all now for many weeks for our ‘Stamping Saturday’ looks, and on occasion its counterpart that didn’t quite take, ‘Textured Tuesday’ we are back with an all new endeavor.  After many weeks of texts/emails we have finally all voted and decided on our official group name.  The Lacquer Ring!

We are a group of crazy polish chicks who spend way too much time emailing each other all day long about polish, life, woes and more polish. While we haven’t all technically met in person (except for Cynthia & Lesley and Me, Amy, & Frosso), we are pretty good friends and hope that we can all meet one day. Unfortunately, the universe will end that day because that much awesomeness is not allowed all in one place. While you may already know the ladies who make up The Lacquer Ring, let me introduce them all, Including myself the other girls are: (PS totally took this last part from Cynthia because it was not only totally brilliant but absolutely true and couldn’t have said it better!)

Amy from The Fancy Side

Frosso from Lacquer Me Silly

Jessica from Once Upon A Polish

Lesley from IG @MisfitLesley

Nicole from Polish Me, Please!

Siobhan from For The Love Of Nail Art

Cynthia from Of Life and Lacquer

Our newest collaboration will be a bi-weekly post. Each month one of the girls is designated to pick both a color theme and a design/nail art theme for us all to participate together in a post. First up is Nicole for the month of May. She sent us all this polish to do a group post to announce our newest venture to you all. It’s Unicorn Bubbles by Candy Lacquer.

unicorns-i-love-them-o

As soon as I got this polish I just could not wait to try it out so I did it overtop Zoya Darcy (which I also got from Nicole) so this look is from a few weeks ago. I did my accent nail with Darling Diva’s LE Miracle Cure

Picture 197

Picture 194

I just love how it made the Bubbles pop more made them appear to be brighter when in reality on their own are more of a pastel.

So knowing that we were scheduling this post for today I had wanted to try this over a pastel and did so last night. I did my left hand with Jessica’s Strawberry Shake it. Can I just say how much I absolutely love this bubble glitter overtop this pink, like I do not want to take it off love…

Picture 205

And finally, I was experimenting and trying to see what it would look like over other colors and so my right hand I used Jessica’s Barely Blueberry and this was how it turned out…

Picture 204

I didn’t hate it, it definitely looks more pastel overtop the blue and the pink, but I prefer it over the pink way better.

Well this was a longer post than normal! Lots of info, lots to look forward to hopefully you agree! 🙂 I will be back here for Stamping Saturday. The Official start date to the new Lacquer Ring bi-weekly posts is May 8th

Here’s the Rest of the Lacquer Ring gang

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 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

Stamping Saturdays – Mojito Madness

My husband bought me tickets to today’s Flyers vs Rangers game Row 1, Center Ice. I am so excited as I love hockey and my Fly boys! We have been to many games in all different seats but never this close, we are right next to their bench!! 😀

So my new camera cord came so I am able to share with you my Stamping Saturdays look. I have a special mani today, I got a couple new sets of stamps and used one for this. This is two coats of Colors by Llarowe – Mojoto (holo) stamped using stamp PUEEN46 and China Glazes’s Liquid Leather.

These first two pictures are in my light box, the green shows up a little lighter

NOTD – Stamping Gold Saturdays

I am taking a page from the Gold Masta V’s Playbook here with this mani, she would be so proud!

tumblr_mq42znrinC1saavwso1_500

This mani is brought to you by the lovely Lesley who got me, Essie’s Good as Gold and Orly’s Sweet Peacock for my birthday! I also used Nicole by OPI Sing y0u like a bee.

  • I first painted one coat of good as gold on all nails
  • Once completely dry, I mean completely! lol use hole reinforcement stickers strategically placed so that you have the half-moon on your nail at the top (or bottom) 036
  • I then painted two coats of Sing you like a bee on my accent nail and two coats of Sweet Peacock on the rest. (If it’s too much to do all at once, do one at a time just keep in mind it might be harder trying to put stickers on your fingers with half of them dry and half not)
  • Once that was completely dry, I used my stamping plate and stamped the good as gold over the sweet peacock nails
  • Topped off with Seche top coat on all. Here’s the final result 🙂

Here is the link for the other girls Saturday Stamping looks!

Don’t forget to check out the Blog sale, I’ve adjusted the prices a bit, I’ve created some more deals, and even made some changes to include my International Beauties!

Stamping Saturdays – Roses are Blue?

Although Valentine’s day is over, I have one more semi-Valentine’s Day look. I have been wanting this OPI shade for quite some time and finally gave in and bought it, OPI Ink Suede. Just like any matte or suede look a top coat is not suggested if you want that look, you can put a top coat on for a different, shinier, longer lasting look however.

I took OPI’s Push and Shove and stamped cascading roses using my Stamp PUEEN14.

I absolute loved the suede against the shiny silver the only downside was that because you can’t use a top coat for this look it like rubbed off :/

Stamping Saturdays – Pupper Biscuit

So our new pupper is 3 months old now! I can’t even believe it! She is getting so big, so quickly! Needless to say life has been crazy with the three of them now so I have not been on top of my posts like my Featured Color Friday. 😦

Picture 247

I did this mani when we first got her and thought it would be perfect to go hand in hand with this special post. This is such a special post because it was my two-year Blog Anniversary the other day!!!

This is two coats of Butter London Disco Biscuit and I stamped Ulta Snow White pupper prints on them.

Stamping Saturdays – Holiday Inn

So I procrastinated today a bit… First I worked until noon then I got my sister some amazing deals on some polishes and shipped them to her… then I came home and have been watching Dexter on Netflix all night and forgot to do this post. 😮 I promise to have better pictures, more pictures and a longer post next Saturday! (more in between too of course) 🙂

I got Ulta – Holiday Inn last week and painted two coats of this, it’s a gorgeous green with beautiful shimmer to it. I then stamped this design on all but my accent nail using the OPI – Love.Music.Angel.Baby.

All of my pictures did NOT come out well this green was so hard to capture and no matter what I did and the glare since this and the stamping polish are so shiny was just insane… so sorry guys only one pic this week 😦
