I have my second pair of nail art earrings to show you! The first one is here. For this pair I used some little wooden pendants that my dad cut for me to use as earrings. They are rectangle and circle shapes and he drilled tiny holes for the earring clasps. He sanded them, but I also used a nail file to smooth some of the corners. Then I grabbed my nail polish and started decorating them!
I painted the wooden squares with black wet n wild nail polish called Ebony Hates Chris. Then I stamped the rectangles using blue Keks by Butter London along with my MoYou Pro Collection 04 stamp. The squishy stamper kinda went wooooosh sideways… you can see my stamps are a little off-center. 😦 But still, I love how the Butter London stamps over the black. I tried this combo one time before when I reviewed some MoYou London items. It looked wicked, but you couldn’t really tell since it was only on my thumbs. (here’s a pic! check out my thumb!) I just knew I had to try that black n blue combo again. So I did. I also added a few rhinestones to my earrings that I stuck on with clear nail polish. Lastly, I attached some fishhook earring clasps, and there ya have it. My Butter London Earrings.
Thank for stopping by and I hope to see you tomorrow. I have a new underside mani to show you! Then later this weekend I’ve got a gradient for our Nail Art Ideas Linkup. Ta-ta!
I have been so looking forward to DAY 5/Skittles Day of the OMD Challenge! I don’t normally wear a lot of skittle manis, but I’ve been longing to try out my new Butter Londons (and all at once)! I have a cute story about these too…
My boyfriend asked me what I wanted for my birthday this year. I couldn’t really think of anything until it hit me- I want some Butter London! How can I not own even one bottle of that stuff? So I showed him the website and asked him to get me my very first bottle. Fast forward to the day of my birthday- he mentioned that he hopes the UPS truck comes. I’m thinking, ‘Greatttt… he ordered me a bottle last minute and it hasn’t arrived yet’. Then later we were sitting on the front porch and the UPS truck pulls out of the neighbor’s driveway and drives right past our house. I saw my bf’s face drop, like he was really disappointed. At this point I figure, OK no gifts I guess. But………. shortly after he comes downstairs with a big paper shopping bag filled with wrapped gifts! He fooled me pretty good. He got me 5 bottles of Butter London and each one was wrapped in a separate box which added to the excitement. That really blew me away! I told him that I only asked for one, but he got me five?! He said if every many tried to please his woman five times as hard then there’d be a lot more happy women in the world. He said it with a smirk on his face… but hey I’m not gonna complain!
My skittles mani consists of….
Yummy Mummy ♥ nude with a slight shimmer (2 coats)
Snog ♥ a super shiny raspberry and my favorite of the bunch (2 coats)
Cheeky Chops ♥ creamy bright yellow (needed 3 coats to eliminate streaking)
Cheeky Stamping Plate CH53 ♥ I LOVE MY BOYFRIEND stamp and Konad black polish
Keks ♥ vibrant blue (2 coats)
Scoundrel ♥ medium dusty purple (2 coats)
See you tomorrow! And here’s the link to the other designs for day 5:
