Happy belated heart day mani

Well.... I had a mini heart attack thinking I had lost these pictures but yaaaay! here they are, not quite a month later but just about!

This was my valentine's day mani!   This is a very close re-creation that I saw in the Nailartholic Studio page (I just cannot find the original post).  Except for the ring finger as I decided to go with a cute kitty cat and a rhinestone for added bling for the occasion!

I used Barielle's Berry Posh and SinfulColors Black on Black
but then I decided to make a larger black block to better match the original source and surprisingly, wore this mani for the ENTIRE weekend! ^_^

Born Pretty Store BP16

**press sample** 

Yet another excellent piece from the Born Pretty Store. 
Today, I bring you BP-16 Image plate .  I love this plate and its safari theme, yet another piece that allows your imagination to flow.  

I hope you like my mani. 

Using the SinfulColors Spring Fever collection I came up with this design.  I was going for a safari afternoon but decided to make it even funner.  My zebra's positioning on the ring finger may seem a little off to you but that's because the birds flying in its vicinity was making her (yes, it's a "her") a little uncomfortable and she kept moving around.  ^_^  LoL

See what I mean about imagination ;) 

You can't go wrong with plates from the born pretty store.  I have been asked about their quality given their super lo prices and I have no complains.  The images are well etched and easy to pick up with your stamper. 

Well... I hope you like it!

SinfulColors Spring Fever

**press sample**

The winter is finally gone, although knowing mother nature's trends in my area we will still have some snow right at the turn of the season... but with spring upon us, It's time for rebirth rejuvenation and freshness.   And what a better way to bust out of your winter nail rut than with these 4 pretties I have for you today part of the comprehensive Spring Fever Collection (seen above). 

These particular ones are trendy and twisty toppers... 

First up is Flight to See.  An opalescent prismatic plum.  Meant to be as a topper.  The new opalescent trend brigs natural hues with reflection of brighter tones that adds shine and shimmer to your base color.  Flight to See was so gorgeous on its own that I decided to wear it alone.  No base and nothing to top but its own beauty.  But because of its opalescent (sheer) nature.  3 coats were required and it dried faster that I expected.

This is Ring the Belini.  This one simply screams citrus and Belini drink mix ^_^ 
This is a gorgeous metallic tangerine see here over white.

Welcomes nail art and designs so don't be bashful with your stamps.  This is one is the BPL-004

Next up is Zest of Time.  A lustrous magenta.  Seen here in 3 coats because I used it alone instead of as a topper.

Horizon Shine is seen here over white and over black!  It's described as a high shine crimson red but it looks and feels more like a red-orange glimmer.

Because of the opalescent, citrus-y and sheer effect because of its topper nature.  The thought of an easy gradient came to mind, no sponge, no complicated gradient technique.  Simply apply your colors and easily blend one over the other.   Seen here over white and using born pretty, zebra pattern BP16 plate wow'ed .  Gradient was seemless or at least I like to think so.   ^_^

I will have these pretties featured again so stay tuned. 
As we prepare for the colorful spring season, keep these in mind to add glam and glimmer to any shade.  SinfulColors' formula glides for easy application and fast drying time at super affordable prices and easy to get colors at most mass retailers with Walgreens being my favorite.

Vintage stamping look

**press sample** 

Hello ladies and gents:

Most people in my geographical area are fed up with snow!... quite frankly I love it... snow brings with it, a tolerable temperature and the magic heavenly confetti as well as the most adored SNOW DAYS.  No school for many and no work for me! ... 

March is a very special month for me but it also reminds me that the end of winter approaches.  While that may make many people happy, it makes me melancholic. 

So I thought I'd pick a vintage-like manicure.

and because I'm still having so much fun with the Born Pretty stamping plate BP-L 004.  Here it is again with Barielle's Kiss me Kate and Vintage Crown.

The colors alone did give me that vintage-y look I was going for, but decided to add tear drop rhinestones for added bling!
