On my ring and pinky fingers, I used 2 coats of Madam Glam Perfectly Natural [press sample] as a base. Then I just randomly placed striping tape and painted over it with Mirror, Mirror.

GTALB, IWIIP is a beautiful deep blue jelly with scattered holographic effect and flakes and specks in blue, purple, and green. Incredibly hard to capture the totality of this beauty!

Well, this was an interesting manicure, not sure that I liked it completely – I think I only had it on for a day. What are your thoughts about it or the polishes I used?

Velocipedestrienne is an aqua base nail polish with glitters of dark green, white, and fuchsia. I had such a hard time with color-accuracy! 😦

I used 3 thin coats plus a matte coat before applying a shiny top coat. It was a bit gritty, hence the matte top coat before shiny. One thing I love about Scofflaw is how truly unique her polishes are – which is one reason why I and so many other people flock to her every re-stock!

    Scofflaw Pink Elephants on Parade + ellagee The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway pedicure

    Hi! Happy Monday to you all! 🙂 Did you have a good weekend? I have to admit, I think I got too hot on July 4th, so yesterday I ended up lazing around all day because I still wasn’t feeling good. I’ve never experienced being this pregnant in the hot summer heat, so I’m still learning how to be careful and stay cool.

    Anyway, today I have a pretty simple pedicure featuring Scofflaw Nail Varnish Pink Elephants on Parade and ellagee The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway. This pedicure is one of my favorites that I’ve done lately because it was so hot and bright out in the sunshine! 😀

    What’s the last pedicure you gave yourself? I’d love to hear about it! Talk soon,
