Pueen Celebration Collection - FIREWORKS FESTIVAL Plate


Its been quiet on here my little blog, but I'm here right now, right this second (with a flutter of excitement) to share with you guys my brand new HUGE stamping plate from Pueen called FIREWORKS FESTIVAL Plate

Side note: I'm still VERY active on instagram and facebook

A short while ago, I was nominated by my dear friend Marta Warmuz from ChitChatNails to be a guest judge in a Instagram contest that was hosted by Marta, sponsored by Pueen. Of course I took that amazing (and rather difficult) opportunity, and was rewarded with my own plate. Thank you Pueen and Marta!

I highly encourage you to go look at the submissions: HERE

There is just so much too look at on this plate! Tons of beautiful imagery. I tested the entire plate using a Sally Hansen Striper polish called Vibrant Violet. It stamped pretty well. Please note that there are some images stamped twice. If the image came out poorly the first time, I cleaned my stamper,scrapper and/or plate, that made the difference every time. I can safely say there is not a shallow image on this plate and that's saying something considering how fine these lines are. Click the image to see the stamping enlarged.

Lots of hidden gems :)

Love! :)
I created a manicure with this plate, but I wasn't happy with how it turned out (my polish, not the plate) So I'll be redoing it asap. 

Thanks for reading!

Happy New Year, all the best in 2015.

Twin Post with Simply Stylish Mails: Penguins


I'm back with another seasonal twin post with my cousin Gen from Simply Stylish Nails. The theme we picked this time is PENGUINS! I love penguins. I don't love free hand.

I tried stamping my only penguin image and it flopped, so I HAD to free hand.

Did I do a good job? Let me just say I'll let you and Genevieve be the judge of that!

I used GOSH Blue Balloon, SH InstaDri Lightening, and Konad M89. I free handed the penguin (all dotting tools) on a piece of plastic & top coated it. When it dried I peeled & placed on my nail on over the stamping, exactly like a decal. Once placed, I dotted a hat, and top coated to seal the deal.

Vampire Twin Post with Simply Stylish Nails


Today I'm really excited to be doing a twin post with my beautiful, smart and crazy talented cousin Genevieve who is front woman & manicurist supreme of the blog Simply Stylish Nails.

You can check out last years twin post, where we unknowingly did EXACT same mani!. Last year we chose our brand new bottle of Clearly Spotted to be the object of our post, this year we went with...
I tried to create a spooky and dark look (dark for me, I like fun manis) and to borrow a friends description: eerie mani. The story here is: its foggy at dawn, and the vampire looks over the village he visited last night before he returns indoors. scaarrrry!
Shadowy vampire nails

I used the following:
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls
SpaRitual A World of Compassion
China Glaze Pelican Grey
China Glaze First Mate
Cult Nails Nevermore
OPI Matte Top Coat
Acetone for mixing.

I've been absent from writing on my blog, but totally active on instagram and facebook. You can see my recent posts and up-dates there. Thank you for sticking me!

I highly encourage you to find Simply Stylish Nails on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and of course her BLOG.

Happy Halloween!

#31DC2014: Green


Day 4!!!! Wow, I'm starting to feel like I can really complete this challenge... But its only going to get harder... so we'll see!

Maybelline Navy Narcissist (stamping polish)
Bundle Monster BM-411

Still in it on day 3! Let hope I don't drop out in the first week :P
