Hey everyone! Sorry I don’t have a spoiler picture for you today with my pedicure…yeah I’m being lazy. LOL. It’s work to take and edit a picture of polish bottles especially when I have limited free time nowadays. Don’t click through unless you wanna see my feets!
Okay, technically this isn’t really a Pick Three Polishes post because I used several Color Club polishes with it, but we’re going to pretend, okay? I sort of based this idea of gradient dots on a cake design that I saw awhile back, so I grabbed a bunch of blue Color Club polishes I had on hand, as well as Darling Diva Polish Old King Billy Had a Ten Foot Willie and Lemming Lacquer March 2016.
Darling Diva Polish OKBHATFW (there’s a mouthful) is a creme based crelly polish with gold and green flakes and scattered holographic specks. I’ve used 3 thin coats plus top coat. It is sheer, but easily build able.
Lemming Lacquer March 2016 is a gold based holographic polish with purple specks and amber flakes (I think?). I’ve used 3 thin coats plus top coat. Again, this is sheer (tbh more sheer than I was expecting), but build able.
After I applied OKBATFW, I applied a circle stencil and then sponged the Color Clubs on top of that. Lastly, I applied two circle nail studs on my pointer finger.
At first, I wasn’t sure I liked how this turned out, but it ended up really nice! What do you think?
Good morning, my lovely readers! Today’s guest post comes to you from Bethany at B Nailed to Perfection. I started following Bethany earlier this year and I love her stamped manicures so much! Let’s check out what she created today:
Hello Be Happy and Buy Polish readers! I’m Bethany from B Nailed To Perfection. I feel so honoured to be posting on behalf of Jessica while she takes a well deserved rest with her new baby. I have read and loved her blog for quite a while now so this is a big deal for me. I hope you enjoy my post 🙂
I wanted to try something I haven’t done before and that was marbling with nail polish. I have actually seen this technique demonstrated by Nail Stamp 4 Fun on YouTube. She dabs a few drops of polish onto the back of a stamping plate and then squishes her stamper to mix the colours. Then she applies it to her nail. What’s weird is that the polish almost turns into a stamped image?! You’ve got to try it, it’s really fun!
On my pinky finger I have 2 coats of Strut Your Stuff by Essie which is a bright blue creme. For my two marbled nails I used a base of Color Club French tip and then put a few drops of Strut Your Stuff onto the back of a stamping plate.
I added a few drops of Morgan Taylor Tokyo a Go Go onto the stamping plate and then mixed them and applied to my nails. There is also two coats of Tokyo a Go Go on my index finger. It is a gorgeous pink leaning purple cream.
I felt like the colours had a tropical feel so I grabbed my new MoYou Tropical plate 03 and stamped some images in white.
I sealed in my design with my favourite top coat which is H K Girl by Glisten & Glow.

Wow, isn’t this just super pretty? That Morgan Taylor polish in particular is my favorite. See what I mean about being in love with her stamped manicures?! I hope you start following Bethany and fall in love with her manicures like I have. 🙂
Happy Monday morning to you, readers! How about a fun pedicure for today?
I started off with 2 coats of Color Club Eternal Beauty, followed by 1 coat of Sephora Formula X Devious.
I then used some heart studs to make “flowers” on my big toes. They didn’t really come out too straight, but hey, what do you expect? I have a big belly in my way right now! haha! 😀

Good morning all! I hope you had a great weekend. 🙂 Today I thought I’d show you my manicure that I created when I went on my family trip.
To create the dots, I used Twiggie and Lambrusco, and over Twiggie on my pinky I used Pahlish Confetti Cannon.
This was a hit with my family members, and to my surprise, I had picked the colors from my aunt & uncle’s wedding (we were there to celebrate their anniversary). What a fun and happy coincidence! 🙂
I hope you have a good Monday and I’ll talk to you tomorrow,
*Programming Note* I had quite a few polishes I wasn’t able to show you in 2015, so I’ll be trying to get those posted over the next couple of weeks.
La Petite Mint-Sieur is a pretty minty green jelly polish. My photos show it a bit warmer than it is. This is 2 coats, no top coat:
Holy Chic! is such a beautiful icy blue polish. I can’t get enough of this color. This is 2 coats, no top coat:
Ultra Violet is an awesome pink polish with blue-green shimmer. Lurrrrve this color! This is 2 coats, with Serum No 5 top coat:
Bell Bottom Babe is a great blurple polish with purple shimmer. It isn’t my favorite, but it is still pretty! This is 2 coats, with Serum No 5 top coat:
Overall, I’m glad I picked these four up, and I believe all four are still available for purchase through llarowe.com. Which of these four is your favorite?
I’ll be honest, I can’t wait until vacation is over and the kids go back to school, I’ve kind of ran out of things for them to do. Any ideas?
