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 😉

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 😉

The Lacquer Ring – Splatter

I’m baaaack! Back with my prompt for The Lacquer Ring nail art for the month of January. I picked as you can tell from the title, Splatter. The girls were ready to curse me out, but I just had to! I love the way that splatter looks and versatility of the look. I decided to go a little differently this time, I wanted different textures or finishes, check out what I came up with, I love it!

For Christmas my husband kept saying he really wanted to get me a nail polish but with my stash how in the world could he possibly know what to get. I sent him my wishlist tab that I have on the blog LOL but he didn’t want to be bothered.. said it wasn’t special enough. I told him well most of what I have on my list that are ‘special’ it’s just because I cannot find them, and spouted out a few. Well Guess What he found me!!!!…. OPI’s Here Today Aragon Tomorrow SUEDE VERSION! I couldn’t believe it, super awesome, have not been able to find this in forever!!!

I did two coats of HTAT Suede and splattered Essie’s Penny talk for my different finish of metallic, and then chose a holo to splatter using Dollish Polish’s Walker Bait.IMG_7317The holo is sort of hard to see, I would have rathered a more vibrant holo but I’m in love with how it came out, what do you think??

Do you hate the work that goes in to splatters too? I’ll let you in on a little secret if you don’t already do this… I use OPI’s glitter off on my cuticles and the tips of my fingers where I know I am going to make a mess. You can use glue, or anything else that you would normally use say when you marble, makes clean up A LOT easier 😉

Stamping Saturdays – Dandelion

Today is Armed Forces Day and my local supermarket honored our local Veterans and my husband was one of them! They had a list of the Veterans and they picked 5 and he was chosen. It was such a nice day, they had a little ceremony, they gave all of the Veterans flowers, a fruit basket, a bank gift card, a letter from the Governor, and a Certificate.  They had a little lunch buffet and presented everyone with their certificates of appreciation. I was so happy that Don got picked and that we were all able to be a part of it.

Unfortunately, my pinky nail is still hella short but at least its not bloody anymore 😦 My backyard is covered in dandelions! Ava runs through the field with her mouth open and just attacks them, she absolutely loves it! In honor of this gorgeous day I did two coats of OPI’s No Room for the blues, and I stamped Ulta’s Snow White and Red Angels RA-318. The stamp is more of a flower with leaves on the stem so I just used the top part of it and didn’t use the leaves. I then painted the stem using China Glaze’s Liquid Leather as the stem because I didn’t like the way green looked over the blue.

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

Stamping Saturdays – Holiday Inn

So I procrastinated today a bit… First I worked until noon then I got my sister some amazing deals on some polishes and shipped them to her… then I came home and have been watching Dexter on Netflix all night and forgot to do this post. 😮 I promise to have better pictures, more pictures and a longer post next Saturday! (more in between too of course) 🙂

I got Ulta – Holiday Inn last week and painted two coats of this, it’s a gorgeous green with beautiful shimmer to it. I then stamped this design on all but my accent nail using the OPI – Love.Music.Angel.Baby.

All of my pictures did NOT come out well this green was so hard to capture and no matter what I did and the glare since this and the stamping polish are so shiny was just insane… so sorry guys only one pic this week 😦
