Cherish @ My Cup of Tea
Hey guys,
Just stopping in to let everyone know that Sinful Colors is on sale at Wal-greens.  99 cents each.  There's a limit of 3.  So I got these:

 The black is Sinful Colors "Secret Admirer"
The green is Sinful Colors "San Francisco"
The white is Sinful Color "Snow Me White"
I'm loving how uniform and thick that white is.  I'm stoked to use it and am hoping it stamps well!

Alrighty, I'm not normally one to get my nails done too often.  I enjoy doing it myself.  But every once in a while I want to be pampered.  In this case, my best friend just got her nail technician license and needed practice.  She did some pink & white acrylics for me.  I added the glitter to the tips and of course two coats of Seche Vite!!
 Didn't she do such a great job?  She also doesn't use a drill or electric file.  This is all by hand.  You rock, Dahianna.  I love you!
I got my Bundle Monster plates yesterday too!!!  After I get tired of the simplicity of these nails I will experiment with them. For now, here is a pic!
It's ok to be jealous!
Speaking of jealous!  I hit the Clearance racks at Claire's today and got 9 pairs of earrings, a necklace, and an eyeliner set.  For $10.  Here is my SCORE!
I'm so stoked to set out my outfits for the week and match up my jewelry!!!

Hi guys, 
Sorry this post is a little late.  But here is my Easter Nails!!! 

 Since none of the colors that I used actually have names I will just tell you the plates that I used...
I used M66 for the flowers and grass.
I used H9 for the bunnies.

What do you guys think?

Hi guys, 
Sorry I haven't posted in a week.  I've been trying to drum up votes for the Bundle Monster contest.  Well, I lost.  Sad, but I will still be buying the new set!  They will be released on the 25th of this month.  $21.99 for the 25 plate set.  Here is today's sneak peaks:

Aren't they adorable??  I love all the Chinese symbols and the holiday themes! That skull and crossbones is AWESOME!
Ok, now it's time to catch up on last week's manis...
The base is Sinful Colors Black on Black. 
I used Konad White to stamp using plate BM21. 
I LOVE the way this one turned out!  Apologies for the lack of cleanup...
The base is NYC Sidewalkers. 
The stamp is of course Black on Black by Sinful Colors. 
The stamp is M64.  One of my new favorites. 
My Easter Egg nails.  In the spirit of saving myself from from Carpel Tunnel, I'm just going to list the plates I used, because there are ten different colors there.  TOO MUCH! 
The plates used here were M64, M60 & M65.

As promised here is that manicure to match my glasses:

 I spent hours and hours trying to come up with a creative watermark and recruited two computer saavy friends, and finally decided--Just typing my blog name on the photo is far easier.  I like the simplicity of this anyhow.  Sorry Tara and Mark for not using your art.  But thank you anyways.  
But the details on the mani:
I used China Glaze "First Class Ticket" for the base. 
I used L.A. Colors in Silver for stamping, plate BM19.

I love how this turned out!  YAY!

So, I ordered some things from one of my favorite nail sites.  This place is SO cheap and they have the cutest stuff!!  Here is a pic of my "nail mail"!!

 10 swatching wheels, tons of dried flowers and rhinestone nippers ((the straight ones will be perfect for the flowers))
 Close-up of the flowers, still not a great one!!  {{Sorry}}
I did nails for the Blazers game.  We beat the Lakers!! 93-86. What what!!
The base is that wonderful China Glaze Ruby Slippers
I used Sinful Colors BLACK to stamp the design from plate M79

Great, huh?  
I loved these!  I think it has to do alot with my DEEP love for this China Glaze!!!

So, here is another mani created for Autism Awareness month:

 For the thumb I used a nameless blue L.A. Colors Color Craze && Sinful Colors Nail Junkie
I used that same blue L.A. Colors for the pointer, middle and pinkie, with a silver glitter striper.
For the ring finger I used China Glaze Peri-wink-le (can you tell that I LOVE this color?) and some rhinestones. 

Of course, all is topped off wit Seche Vite.  

NOW, I really need some help from all my wonderful nail blogging buddies.  Can someone help me create a watermark logo?  I'm thinking its about time for one of those!!!

Alrighty, I just saw that Bundle Monster released a new plate. Another full nail design plate and some more holiday designs. Loving this one too.
How adorable, right! I'm loving this butterfly design!!! I'm so excited for this set to come out!!!

I do have to admit that I didn't even know it was Autism Awareness month.  Pretty bad considering I'm a caregiver for adults with developmental disabilities.  To be fair, none of the clients I currently work with are stricken with Autism.  Although I have worked with clients who are, and let me tell you, they happen to be some of the most loving and wonderful people I've met!  So without further ado this is what I came up with. 

 For the base color I used China Glaze "Secret Peri-wink-le"
I stamped the clouds with China Glaze "First Mate" using my M79 Konad plate
I used Konad special white polish to stamp the dove from my Chez-Delaney plate T40. 
Of course, topped off with Seche Vite Top Coat.

Thanks to Glitta Gloves for the genius idea of celebrating this month with blue nails!!
