Tipsy posting feat I'm not too sure...

Hi guys!

And so this is Christmas... 

So much food and so many drinks. Maybe too many drinks. But anyhoo! This is a tipsy post and so I cannot remember the name of the polishes I used for this look... but if you really care to know you could always ask me in the comment section and I'll find out for you once I sober up.

I do know that the base color is from Sally Hansen Insta-Dri and the ring finger is OPI Alpine Snow. This is a copy cat of the look I had created for Sarah DoubleXL.

Happy holidays to all,

Girls' Night pt 2 feat China Glaze & HealthyCurvesInMTL

Hey loves!

As I had previously mentioned, I had a girls' night in Friday night and today I want to show you what the lovely Fabs got done. First I created nail enhancements for her using CND UV gel. This girl is a nail fiend just like I am and she's been on a hunt for her perfect nude. We looked at pictures of nails that Rihanna has sported over the years and went from there.

I chose China Glaze's Sunset Sail and used Maybelline Color Show in Bold Gold for the ring fingers. To that I added two coats of Color Club's Gingerbread.

Mmmmm... Sexy.

Have you found your perfect nude yet?

Let it snow! feat Gelish and Ms DoubleXL

Hey loves!

It's been a long week! So Ms DoubleXL from QSF and I got together with our girlfriend Fabs, from  healthycurvesinmtl, to paint our nails, drink wine and just let our hair down. Oh and did we ever. Ha!

Sarah was in the mood for nails with a winter theme. Seeing that she's a Gelish convert, we used Up In The Blue as a base color. I added one coat of Gelish Champagne for some sparkle and stamped silver snowflakes on her nails.

The index was painted in Gelish Sleek White, the gradient was created using SH Insta-Dri colors and more snowflakes we're added. I also painted the words "Let it snow" on the thumbs and added one lonely snowflake.

My girls and I might not be very fond of the snow but we all agree that these nails are great for the season! Come back this week to see what Fabs got done!

Beach ready with Sandy feat CND gel and Gelish

Hi guys!

Every single computer in my home decided to quit on me! So that's why this blog has been a little dry but I haven't stopped painting nails and I have been accumulating material for you guys.

Let's talk nails!

I'm slowly but surely taking clients again so today I thought I'd start with pictures of the latest set I worked on. Sandy might be tiny in size but this chick has a huge personality! I love clients like her because it just makes the whole experience more fun. Doesn't feel like work at all actually!

Sandy is off to Cuba with her hubby so she called on me to hook her up with a french manicure but with a twist. She's a very active woman who wants pretty nails without too much maintenance so I gave her a very natural gel overlay using CND products. At the request of her husband (the man knows what he likes) I also gave her a french manicure using Gelish in Black Shadow for the tips. Sandy decided that her pinky fingers would wear an accent and chose to go with one coat of Vegas Nights (love that glitter) and the tips in Midnight Caller which is a gun metal grey. 

I'm glad to report that Sandy is a very happy customer and so was her hubby. Expect to see her hands again after the holidays!

Red For The Holidays feat. Zoya Blaze

Hey loves,

This is a quick post with a simple swatch of a polish that I plan on wearing during the holidays; Zoya's Blaze from the Ornate Collection. I love the holographic quality of this polish. Very sparkly.
