Hot Paprika

Hello there friends! Today I bring you a shade that is perfect for summer and would look great on toes with some cute sandals. This polish will be coming with me for my next pedicure. :) Check out 'My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours', from O.P.I
Two coats of O.P.I My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours

This polish is stunning! It's an orange red polish, with a very subtle shimmer. The formula is perfection, and it was beautiful in just two coats.

Thank you for reading lovelies! Have a great weekend!

Winstonia Stamped Pretties!

Hello all of you lovely people! Tonight, I bring you another stamping manicure! Purple, glitter and nail stamping some of my favorite things in life.

China Glaze Sweet Hook and  Sephora by O.P.I Sugar Plum Fairies Gone Wild

Winstonia Plate W113 for the design, with  Orly Liquid Vinyl.

The Sephora glitter was on sale for $4.50, I bought a few polishes since it was such a great deal. I can't get enough glitter!

Glistening Stars

 Hello everyone! These nails didn't come out as I imagined them but I am still pretty happy with them.
Check em out..lots of pics of this one. :)

I used one coat of Glistening Snow from China Glaze and added two coats of Shooting Stars also from China Glaze. Shooting stars and glistening snow is the perfect sparkly glitter, holographic combination.

Blurry pic so you can get an idea of the holo goodness! This manicure was definitely a driving liability, I couldn't stop looking at it!

I expected the pattern to show a bit more, I guess I should have used darker colors. A gradient of purple, blue, and pink for the design.

Shooting Stars is so pretty, I haven't used it in forever so it was all thickened up. After a few drops of Seche Restore it was perfect again.

Konad plate M-57 for the pastel leopard gradient.

Thanks for reading friends! I hope you are all having a great weekend!

The Happiest Manicure on Earth!

It has happy faces, it has a rainbow gradient, and it's just adorable! Hello Friends, it's been a very long week and tomorrow is my Friday(thank goodness). Since it's the last day of the week for me I wanted to end it with some happy nails! 

I usually wouldn't think to put a stamp full of happy faces on my nails but I tried it and I like it! I used Bundle Monster plate BM-304 for this pattern.

Colors Used
Essie- Silken Cord (red)
Essie-Fear Or Desire (orange)
Color Club- Almost Famous (yellow)
O.P.I- Did It On 'Em (green)
O.P.I -Fly (blue)
China Glaze- Spontaneous (purple)
These pretty polishes were all applied (3 at a time) with a makeup sponge over one coat of white polish.

These nails photographed really well. I need to do gradients like this more often, I love how it matches but doesn't.

Going forward I will be working with more stamps that I wouldn't usually pick out first, the result this time was very good!

Thank you for reading and checking these out, I REALLY like them. I hope you guys do too!
These will for sure brighten my day! Until next time...

Daisies & Dots!

Hey lovely friends! I hope you are all doing well, I bring you guys a bright summery manicure today featuring something I've never done, Daisies!

The base is two coats of My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours from O.P.I, the polka dots are oe of my go to oranges from China Glaze, Papaya Punch. My accent nail is three coats of O.P.I Crown Me Already, one of the best glitters of ALL TIME!

White and yellow daisies using my dotting tool, super easy and really cute. 

I went a little overboard with the pictures but that's because these nails photographed so well, I wanted to add ALL the pictures. :)

Hey friends! This is one of my favorite manicures to do....check my cupcakes out guys!
Butter London Jasper,gorgeous pastel yellow creme for the base, White polish for the frosting (I used the cloud technique) and random pretties for the sprinkles.

This is like a baby yellow, it reminds me of the color you'd paint the walls of a nursery for a baby you didn't know the sex of yet.


I hope you like these, something light and simple. Have a great night friends :)

Don't Burst My Bubble!

Hello there friends! Today I bring you a palette cleanser. A pretty barely pink jelly from O.P.I called Don't Burst My Bubble. I think this is my new favorite palette cleanser, it's just so perfect.
Three coats of Don't Burst My Bubble.

You know I had to add a bit of sparkle! I used a few rhinestones I got from  eBay.

This would be a good Bridal manicure, or at least that's the vibe I get from it. :)

Thank  you so much for reading, I'll be back soon with something bright! (or something super darkI haven't decided yet) Have a great day lovelies!

Water Marble madness!

Hello Cupcakes! Tonight I bring you my second attempt at trying the water marble technique. This was not easy but after patience, a little frustration and A LOT of nail polish, I managed to pull it off. (Kinda Sorta)

Sloppy clean up job but I was so ready for bed after an hour of practicing, I didn't even care haha.

Orly Blue Collar and China Glaze Fuchsia Fanatic

I think once a week I am going to continue practicing and playing with water marble because I really love the outcome and there is so much you can do with it! I need to perfect it!

Thank you for reading friends! Until next time :)

Bright Tribal

AHHHH! Nubs!! Oh yeah, Hi Friends. I broke a nail opening the dishwasher (one reason why I shouldn't have to do dishes), so I had to file all of my nails down. I don't mind the fresh start though!

For this gradient I used white nail polish for the base and yellow, neon orange and a bright magenta, applied with a makeup sponge.

Mash Plate Mash-42 and Orly Liquid Vinyl for the design.

Gradient and ombre manicures are some of my favorite to do because I am always happy with the results. I originally started out attempting a water marble but after 7 unsuccessful attempts and being on the verge of tears, I gave up. Meh.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoy these nails.
