Turquoise, Gold, and Black + White Chevron Skittlette Manicure

Purchased by Me buttonGood Monday morning, all! How was your weekend? We had a fun one with family on Sunday and on Saturday did some garage-saling and fun outings. I’ve also been powering through the Harry Potter series (again) just because. Today I have a fun manicure to show you featuring KBShimmer, Jessica Cosmetics, Pahlish, and ellagee.

I started off with 3 thin coats of Pahlish Star Upon Your Shoulder (Bespoke Batch) on my index and ring fingers. On my middle finger, I used 2 coats of KBShimmer Dressed to Gild. Lastly, on my pinky (and thumb), I started with 2 coats of Jessica Cosmetics Sharktooth before using chevron nail vinyls and ellagee My Sweet Romantic Teenage Nights.

I have to admit, I wore this for about 4 days before I finally had to take it off. It was so sparkly and pretty, I just loathed to get rid of it!

Have you been reading or re-reading any favorite books lately? I’m on book 6 of the HP series, so I’m looking for something else to read soon – leave me your favorites in the comments!

1/2 + 1/2 pedicure with holographic studs

Good Monday morning, all! Did you have a fantastic weekend? Our family went to a local renaissance faire at the zoo yesterday and just had a blast…it was my first one and I’m so glad we went. 🙂

Today I have a fun sparkly pedicure for you! Lately I’ve just really wanted my toes to be super pretty and fun, so they’ve been pretty jazzy. 😛

I started off with Jessica Cosmetics Starfish Glow (pink-coral) on half of each toe, and Jessica Cosmetics Dynamite Teal on the other half. I then used Pahlish What a Terrible World over both colors. Lastly, I used holographic silver dots from daily charme [gift] down the middle where the two creme polishes met, and topped with top coat.

I think I wore this for about two weeks and none of the dots ever fell off! I was really impressed with how flat they lay on the toenail. If you’re interested in them, you can purchase them here.

What are you rocking on your toes lately? I hope it’s something that makes you smile! 🙂

12 Days of Christmas Nail Art: Snowmen

Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic week. 🙂 When I was thinking about the prompt of “snowmen”, I was going to do something different than last year’s Calvin & Hobbes snowmen nail art, but I just couldn’t. I had to do C&H again this year.

So, on my pinky & ring finger is a snowman who has dived into the snow. Then on my pointer finger is a snowman who has decided to knock over a fellow snowman (middle finger) for a snow cone. I used Jessica Sharktooth as a base, Jessica Sunset Blvd. for the black and topped with A Girl Obsessed Matte-ict top coat.

Let’s take a look at more snowmen:

I’m also participating in the annual holiday blog hop hosted by The Sparkle Queen:

I have to admit, I’m not too happy with my snowmen this year, I think I did much better last year. What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

HPB Oct. Halloween Mani Link-Up

Good morning, my spooky readers! We’re inching closer and closer to Halloween and next week I’ll have even more Halloween manis to show you! Today, though, the Hobby Polish Bloggers group decided to get together for a Halloween mani link-up! The HPB is a group for bloggers who blog casually or for fun. It’s a great resource for those who are just starting out, or for those of us who have been doing this awhile. As a group, we’ll be doing a monthly link-up and today is our first one: Halloween!

So I was trying to get inspired for this and I came across one of those skull cameos on etsy (here’s one but they’re all over the place). Anyway, I thought I would try my hand at it.

I’ve used Jessica Sharktooth (white), Desire (red), Sunset Blvd (black), and Argon Blue. I was going to do a brocade-ish design on my pinky but kept messing it up, so I went with a saran wrap technique instead. Also, did you know that doing a skeleton in profile is FREAKING HARD?! LOL 😛 It totally didn’t come out how I wanted but oh well!

Almost Birthday Nail Art

Good morning all! Are you glad it’s the weekend? I know I am, though I don’t really have anything going on besides doing laundry (yay), and trying to shop for a pair of jeans. I realized the other day that I have exactly 2 pair of jeans that fit well and only 1 pair that looks nice. :/ I hate shopping too, so we’ll see how this goes!

Anyway, I have a manicure today that was *almost* my birthday nails, but I decided that I didn’t like it. (If you missed my birthday nails, check it out!)

I used OPI Sorry I’m Fizzy Today (pink), OPI We’ll Always Have Paris (wine red), Daisy Island Oasis (teal green), and Jessica Sharktooth (white). I don’t know what’s going on with my middle finger, but it didn’t turn out the way I was envisioning it in my head. What do you think?

Well, I’m off to take my kids to bowling and then go shopping. Tell me, do you like to shop? Or not?

Pirate Nail Art Challenge: Sea Creatures

Ahoy, me hearties! Today be the first day o’ th’ Pirate Nail Art Challenge, and I hope ye be ready for it! 😉 Who knows what creepy crawlies lurk in the depths o’the ocean? The mysteries…what jaws await to snatch ye up? If yer skeered of the ocean, best ye not be readin’ any further!

Okay, enough pirate talk! 😛 I’ll be the first to admit, lakes/oceans/etc freak me out. I struggle with not seeing the bottom of what I’m swimming in, and my imagination runs loose with what’s down there ready to eat me alive. So what else could I do for today’s prompt of “sea creatures” but a big ole set of sharp teeth?

I’ve use Jessica Surfer Boyz n Berry as a base, then sponged OPI Mermaid’s Tears (appropriate, no?) on top. Then using Jessica Milky Way, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and OPI Steady As She Rose, I created the mouth and teeth. Finally, I topped it off with ellagee glass. I wanted to leave it ambiguous enough to really let you, my lovely reader, use your imagination! What do you imagine it to be?
