Did you know I have a huge love for puns? My mom really loved them too, I think that’s where it first developed. The more of a groan they elicit, the better for me. One pun that has entered our family lexicon has to do with triangles, actually. Usually I’ll say something to my husband like, “You can be so obtuse” and he’ll respond with, “Well at least I’m a-cute!” 😛

I was taking photos today of my nails (as a blogger does) and looked down and saw how awesome my pedi looked so snapped a quick picture to share with you. If you hate feet, don’t click through to see them!
China Glaze Thataway, 2 coats plus top coat. Super thin.
I freaking loved this mani. Flashy and just brilliant. Just one of those manicures that makes you feel amazing while you’re wearing it. Is that a little silly, maybe? I don’t care. 😛 I painted the two colors next to each other on a piece of sandwich baggie, then smooshed it with a stamper and placed it on the nail.

Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny
I don’t know how many people have seen this veil technique but this is now the second or third time I’ve done a mani with it and it’s so fun. I first saw this through nail_muse on instagram but I saw this variation and had to try my hand at it. I tried to do an accent nail with Tonic Polish Caliente with the veil technique but I don’t think it worked. (It’s come to my attention that perfect10customnails is perhaps the originator of the veil neil technique. Just gotta give credit where it is due!) Continue reading

Current mani here! I’ve been wanting to use Bolide from Turtle Tootsie Polishes since I bought it but everything I tried just didn’t click. I finally forced myself to sit down with it and come up with other complementary colors and a technique. And yes, I know you’ve seen a similar technique earlier this week. This technique was one I saw from yagala on instagram.
I love how the fluid nail art really looks like swirled candy or chocolate or even coffee. I started off with a shiny top coat and though I liked it, I really wanted to try it with a matte top coat.

KBShimmer Oh Matte!
I jammed my finger playing at the park with my kids on Sunday so there went my swatching plans yesterday. <_< Of course I had all these plans to get a bunch of polishes swatched and that jammed those all up. 😛
Anyway, you’ll be getting nail art posts for the rest of the week, I hope you don’t mind. 🙂 I applied a coat of Let’s Jam to my nails and let dry. Then I applied another coat and applied the other two polishes to the nail before swirling around with a brush.

This was such a fun mani! My husband doesn’t often understand my mis-matched manis but honestly, I don’t care. 😀 I mean, my socks don’t even usually match and it drives him crazy.
Aww, I love you too, KBShimmer! ❤ What, you don’t see a vague shape of a heart here? Don’t ask me how I accomplished that because I have no idea.
