Adding Accents

Hi Everyone!

After a couple of days of wear, I just couldn't resist adding a bit of stamping to my glitter gradient. Although rather impractical, since it was my day off from work, I decided to play around with adding some dimension in the form of tiny bullion beads and pearls. I may have gotten a bit carried away, but it was definitely worth it...

Dazzle Dry Glitter Gradient

Good Morning Lovelies!

I always have the best intentions of trying to post more often, but it never fails that life gets in the way and there is no time for nails or posting. But hey, at least I'm still managing for once weekly so that counts for something, right? Today I have a glitter gradient to share with you. The purple and gold color combo is one that I reach for again and again so when I saw these two Dazzle Dry colors hanging out together, I knew I had to pair them up on the nail. Yes, they were indeed hanging out together, waiting for their moment in the spotlight. Both are from the Summer 2015 collection, so they have been waiting for quite a while for me to finally show them off.

Nicole Diary Paisely Decals

Hi Lovelies,

I've got a super quick and easy manicure to share with you today. Our lives often get so busy and hectic that we can't always make time for fancy nail art, but still want something pretty on the nails. When such is the case for me, I tend to gravitate toward nail wraps and water decals. This time, I decided to try out another pattern of water decals from Nicole Diary.

Dance Legend Sonya with Nail Vinyl Accents

Hello Everyone!

I hope you all have had a lovely weekend! Mine was half dreary and rainy and half sunny and gorgeous. There was no in between as though the weather just couldn't make up it's mind. I took the opportunity during the gloomy times to sneak away into my polish cave and cheer myself up by playing around with nail art. I changed my manicure, not once, but gasp twice in those two days. Lately as you know that's unheard of for me. In any case, one of the manicures was this attempt at playing around with nail vinyls...

Lacy Pink

Hello Lovelies!

I recently purchased a handful of beautiful Major Dijit stamping plates through a group buy on Facebook. As with all group buys, they took a while to finally arrive and I couldn't wait to play with them as soon as they were in my greedy little paws. The Major Dijit plates are chock full of lacy patterns and settling on which one to try first was the most taxing portion of creating the manicure. I chose to pair it with a bright pink by Dazzle Dry from their Summer 2015 Over the Rainbow collection. It is just slightly ironic that with Summer almost over, I'm finally digging into the Summer shades. Maybe a bit of wishful thinking, hoping that the sunshine lasts just a bit longer?

Red Velvet Damask

Hello Lovelies!

I'm back with one more post featuring a lacquer from the Glam Polish Coven collection. It was largely inspired by this manicure created by Debbie of @ladyandthe_stamp on Instagram. She mattified one of the beautiful Coven shades and I instantly knew I wanted to try to do that as well. To be honest, I would not have even thought to mattify these shades since the flakies loose all their holo goodness, but the gorgeous velvet look and feel really made up for it.

Jewel Tones

Hi Lacquer Lovers!

Today I've got another manicure to show you with a few of the Glam Polish beauties from the Coven collection which will be released tomorrow! The three of them, red to plum to purple, made such a lovely gradient that I felt the need to combine them in a manicure. I finally even found the time to play around with making decals. Although making ten of them was more time consuming than I remembered, it was definitely worth it in the end...
