Love, Lipstick & Glitter feat Color Club's Mrs Robinson

Hey loves!

I’m in love with nail stamping all over again! I own lots of stamping plates but I’ve been neglecting them for some reason (I blame you Gelish!). This adorable manicure was created over the weekend as I was preparing my posts for the week. I took it off right after taking pictures of it but I will definitely be trying this again.

I used one coat of SH Insta-Dri in Presto Pink on the ring finger and two coats of Color Club’s Mrs Robinson on all the others. Using Presto Pink I stamped a full nail kisses and lipstick design and on the thumb and ring finger just some lip prints. On top of those accent fingers is one coat of China Glaze’s Golden Enchantment.

I love this!


If doesn’t scream Love, Lipstick & Glitter then I don’t know what does!

Here comes the bride!

Hi loves!

Today’s post is dedicated to my road dog Bella who is getting married!!! I am so happy for her and her fiancé Karim. Such a cute couple! I was supposed to be at her bridal shower in Toronto this weekend but I had to stay with my kids. I’m pretty bummed about not being able to go so I decided to come up with a wedding inspired manin to cheer myself up.

I used OPI’s Alpine Snow for the ring finger and stamped the letters K and B using Wet N Wild’s Ebony Hates Chris. I used the same Wet N Wild polish on all the other fingers and stamped a delicate design using Konad special polish in White. For the thumb I painted on one coat of Essie’s Sugar Daddy and topped it off with Essie’s Pure Pearlfection.  The wedding dress was created using Alpine Snow and I added pearls and a rhinestone to make a necklace.

This would have been perfect for her bridal shower. I’m there in spirit B! I wish you and Karim all the best. Love you lots!

Roses and fishnets feat Sally Hansen's Lively Lilac

Hey loves!

I’ve been having a lot of fun playing around with my collection of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polishes and with my stamping plates of course!

Today’s manicure was created using SH Insta-Dri in Lively Lilac on the index middle and pinky fingers and Essence’s Black is Black on the accent fingers. A fishnet pattern was added to the index and pinky using Wet n Wild’s Ebony Hates Chris and roses were stamped on the ring finger and thumb with SH Lively Lilac. The middle finger was purposely left plain. I sealed everything with some top coat and voilà!

Random swatches! feat Essie's Navigate Her

Hey guys!

I been trying my best to swatch as much nail polish as I can so that I can at least have some material to post for those days when I just don’t have time to blog. So I went a little swatch crazy last weekend (my cuticles are crying for Jesus). Today I’ll be showing you a swatch of Essie’s Navigate Her (is it just me or does that sound kinda naughty?).  This is two easy coats with no topcoat. 

Once I swatched it I decided to break out another polish I had been meaning to try out: OPI’s Shatter the Scales which came out with the Spiderman collection. The glittery finish is what makes this shatter different from the other colors OPI has come out with.
