The Lacquer Ring – Dotticure

We are back with some dotticures! Although Frosso pointed out she picked this month even though I thought I did.. lol dotticures are one of my favorites to do, the color options and patterns are limitless. Oh did I also mention I am obsessed with Polka Dots, hence why I thought I picked this ūüėČ

On Monday I have an interview!! So I wanted to mess around with some neutrals as I normally don’t do too many manis like that. Although I will probably put on something even more neutral, I absolutely love the way this came out!

I used OPI’s Gwen Collection for the most part, 4 In the Morning, Push and Shove, and Love.Angel.Music.Baby along with Essie Good as Gold and the base is China Glaze Dandy Lyin’ Around

I cannot say enough how much I love how this turned out… normally the ones I love you guys don’t and visa versa, lol so tell me what you think, and what’s your favorite dotticure color combo if you have one ūüėČ

The Lacquer Ring – Orange

Today is the day! Our first group post in our newest project. This month Nicole from Polish Me, Please is in charge of picking our challenge and first up are Orange manis. We have all done different orange manis for you today.

For me, I think I finally got this whole gradient thing down.. either that or I just got lucky. I did two coats of Jessica’s Tangerine Dreamz (which before I continue I need to say that I really think this Jessica Gelato Mio collection might be my favorite collection of maybe all time.. ) The orange gradients in to Avon’s Cosmic Saturn. I then stamped using OPI’s 4 in the Morning and MoYou’s stamp Back to the 80’s – 04

 

Without further adieu here is my orange mani

Textured Tuesdays – Cosmo in the Morning

For most of you that have been following my blog for a while know that you don’t see many textured looks here… I have never been a big fan. My polish girls, Lesley, Amy, Jess, Nic, Sib, Fross, and Cynthia¬†finally talked me in to it and now I have quite a few in my collection; So far mostly Zoyas and a couple of OPI’s.

Amy from The Fancy Side has decided to start a new theme on Tuesday’s for anyone interested and it’s called Textured Tuesdays. Head on over to her blog to add your¬†nails to¬†the link¬†every Tuesday.

I wasn’t able to participate in week¬†1 so this is week 2. I did Zoya Cosmo on all fingers and accented one nail with OPI’s 4 in the Morning.

Stamping Saturdays – 4 In the Morning

ANOTHER Satin / Matte finish what is up with me? ! I normally don’t like it if it doesn’t shine or sparkle in some way. I am in love with 4 in the Morning part of Gwen’s new collection with OPI.

I took Morgan Taylor РFame Game and stamped this design on a couple of my nails. I also used top coat so you could see the black shiny and in its original format of matte. Just like. Love.Angel.Music.Baby, 4 In the Morning does not need a top coat and dries Matte or Satin.

Please ignore my little nub, I broke my pinky nail really short about a week ago ūüė¶ so I cut them all back to somewhat match.
