Just in the nick of time! Here’s my GLITTER themed manicure for the February N.A.I.L. Linkup.
I re-sized my pics in a different program and they look a little blurry. Buuuut I’m happy to say that I was able to take these photos outside in natural light this time! Some of our snow has melted and I’m venturing outside again. I emphasize the word SOME when speaking about the snow melting. There’s still a lot on the ground! Oh, and we’re supposed to get another snowstorm on sunday nite. Sweeeeet. Cuz it hasn’t snowed in like what? At least 5 days now ?
- I’m wearing one coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails as my basecoat.
- I used one coat of Seche Chic as my nude transparent base color.
- I applied blue painters tape to section off my tips.
- Painted my tips a dark brown shimmery color from the Kardashian Cabana Collection called Sunrise.
- Then I applied three coats of my sparse glitter topper from wet n wild called Stick it to the Man.
- One coat of seche vite topcoat to smooth it all out.
- Then I realized it needed something to pull it all together so I added blue dots of Nicole by Opi Pros & Confidence. Much better!
The last time I wore this brown Kardashian color I was disappointed. The brush was all weird and defective and application was difficult. I wrote to the Kardashians and Kim promptly mailed me a new one! Ok, I didn’t write to THE Kardashians… I wrote to their company. And the ACTUAL Kim didn’t mail me a new product, instead some girl in their customer care department named Kim did. But still… it was pretty cool, and I appreciate their good customer service. Here’s the other time I wore this brown: Feathers for Oct NAILLINKUP
February N.A.I.L. is almost over but tomorrow we’ll announce the March themes. Can’t wait! And here are all the awesome nail art entries from February. Talk soon…
Valentines Day :
Hey everybody ! Happy weekend! I’m so glad it’s friday night…. woohooo! I have been a little stressed lately and I thought I’d type up a spam post for fun. To bring the blogging back to blogging. How about a conscious stream of random nail stuff???????
I just got some Nicole by OPIs in the mail! For free. Well, sorta kinda. I had to buy 8 boxes of Special K cereal to earn them. They had a promo here where if you had 3 UPC codes from their cereal boxes you’d get the red polish. But if you collect 8 UPC codes you get all three bottles (red, blue and pink). I entered my 8 codes onto their website and then they mailed them right out to me! I only had 2 Nicole by OPIs in my stash so I’m really glad to have 3 more. I have well over 300 bottles of polish but I only owned 2 Nicoles? I know, I don’t get it either. Here’s the three colors I got: ♥ Challenge Red-Y, ♥ Pros And Confidence, ♥ Be Ama-Zing!
Nice trio right?? Moving on to valentines day stuff….I was looking through my old pics and I found this cute photoshopped pic of an old valentines manicure. I used regular stickers on my nails for this design. The original post is here: Easy Valentines Day Nails. Lookit my cute little squared off nails! Awwws! They look so cute and funny compared to my current shape!
I have this MoYou London plate that I haven’t used yet and I wanted to show you! MoYou London sent it to me for review along with a pro plate and a scraper. It’s called Back to the 60’s – 01. I love all the funky hippie designs on here (it’s so reminiscent of the artistic hippie town that I live in). Since a lot of the designs on this plate are small and have blank spaces in them- they may be perfect for some diy decals!
The other two items I received for review are posted here. I must say, the MoYou Large size stamper they sent me is literally the bomb, I use it exclusively now. I never use my konad stamper anymore. Someone recently commented on one of my posts that MoYou carries a new grey stamper. It’s described as XL on their website so I guess it’s bigger than the one I’ve been using. You can check out their three stampers here: MoYou London NAIL ART TOOLS.
Also, MoYou has been pumping out more new collections …it feels like every week now! The most recent ones are SCI-FI and SCHOLAR. They even carry jewelry findings so you can stamp onto jewelry and make your own wearable nail art! Here’s the link for MoYou’s Stamping Jewellery. I love this idea and I’ve been thinkin of making my own stamped jewelry now too! My dad is a woodworker and when he has little scraps of wood sometimes he’ll make me pendants for earring n stuff. He just surprised me with a pair in fact (see pic below), so I think I’ll give it a go with nail polish! I will def post the results. OK, I feel extra Craftynail all of sudden!
Well, that’s all folks. Enjoy your weekend and talk soon!
