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!!!
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!
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 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!!
