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!

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!

Day 4: Green

I used the following:
KBShimmer Shore Thing (base)
Messy Mansion MM12 (plate)
Konad White (stamping polish)
OPI Kiss me on the Tulips (roses)
Zoya Barbie (roses)
China Glaze Holly-Day (leaves)


#31DC2014: Yellow


Day 3 of the 31 day challenge with the colour yellow. I'm not that big into the shade yellow by itself. I prefer to use it as an accent to other colours and part of the bigger picture.

My yellow mani is simple and nautical themed. I used:
Finger Paints Paper Mâché
Sally Hansen Insta-dri Lightening
Maybelline Navy Narcissist (stamping polish)
Bundle Monster BM-411
MoYou Sailor 01 

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

Thank you so much for looking.

#31DC2014: Orange


We made it to day 2 of the #31DC2014 And the theme is orange. I shamelessly copied a manicure by Genevieve at Simply Stylish Nails that she posted last week. She created THE perfect tape manicure using varying orange shades in a gradient that made my heart skip a beat!

Here's my copy cat version:

Finger paints Paper Mâché
Lise Watier Tangerine
China Glaze Peachy Keen
China Glaze Lemon Fizz
Stripping Tape

I attempted I get ahead in the #31dc2014 but I left this manicure on until the late Monday night. I didn't want to remove it, which cause me to loose my "lead". I'll be trying to get a leg up tonight. 

Thanks for reading!
