The Lacquer Ring – Seafoam

Whoa, two back to back posts on the blog!? That’s right! This time I have our latest TLR post for you Seafoam.  This color is perfect for me not only because I have  A LOT of Seafoam green and blues, but because our car color was Seafoam Green! Before our Camry we,  had a Seafoam Green Altima. Don hated it! I got it just before we started dating so he basically had no say in the color! lol  I bought it used so I really didn’t either, but I loved it, of course! He always said it looked like toothpaste! 😦  In any event, I had plenty of options for this theme.

I ended up choosing Cirque’s Julep and I did an accent nail using Lime Crime’s Milky Ways and some polka dots with Julep.

So our Altima wasn’t quite this sparkly, I wish it was, but it was a gorgeous color

Have a good weekend all!

Stamping Saturday – Wildwoods by the Sea

My local peeps will love this theme and color! This weekend it’s Labor Day weekend here. I just got these GORGEOUS colors from Philly Loves Lacquer and I have one of them to show you today. As she is local her polish names are cool because you can relate to all of them. The inspiration for her to start her line was drawn by her fascination with the history and landmarks of the City she loved and she combined that along with her love for nail polish and voila Philly Loves Lacquer was born!

Today I have Wildwoods by the Sea. Everyone knows that in this area Wildwood is THE place to be during the summer. Especially this ‘last’ weekend, Labor Day weekend. Wildwood will be Packed to the core this weekend with anyone and everyone celebrating their last fun in ‘the sun weekend before the unofficial end to summer.

“Love those wild wild Wildwood days”

Wildwoods by the Sea is “is a creamy deep dark seafoam base with a strong scattered holographic finish” so in other words, stunning. Sticking to the theme I stamped some seashells using my MoYou plate and Essie’s Good as Gold. Here’s my ‘End of Summer, Wildwoods mani’

Stamping Saturdays – Frittery Monarchs

Today is my 10th Wedding Anniversary, so I am scheduling this post to post today. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t ::fingers crossed:: My husband was in the Army and we were stationed in Texas and we got married at the Justice of Peace. As most of our family was not able to attend, once he got out of the Army, and we moved back home, we had a Vow Renewal Ceremony and Reception for our 5th Anniversary. Today, we have now been married 10 years, where the heck does the time go. You always hear people say it but I never thought I’d say it, it’s absolutely true. He still is to this day the love of my life and I can’t imagine my life without him.

So you are not loosing it, ( if you are keeping track that is ) TLR or The Lacquer Ring was due this Thursday for our Nail art challenge group post. The other girls are such slackers! hehe so we delayed until next Thursday. For this week’s Stamping Saturday I have a look that I am absolutely in love with.

This weeks look is Monarch butterflies. I used Ruffian’s Fox Hunt with one coat of overlay using Venique’s Forever Fritters, stamped with China Glaze’s Liquid Leather using MoYou Pro Collection 5 stamp. I then hand painted in the white dots using China Glaze’s White out.

I absolutely love the way this came out, it is sooo much prettier and shimmery-er in person.

Butterflies are very special to me. Butterflies always find me, all of my plants attract them, (on purpose 😉 )I have such good luck with them I even held a few before. But even more important than, that in my family we say they are a sign of our loved ones watching over us in a way. A family member had passed who loved butterflies and on the day of her funeral in the rain a butterfly landed on her grave as if to tell our family that she was alright. When my grandfather passed I felt as though every time I saw a butterfly flying so close to me or allowing me to hold it, I felt it was him doing the same. Has anyone ever had an experience like that at all?

There you have it, now go check out the other girls looks!

Stamping Saturdays – Diamond Madness

Ugg! Another very busy week and weekend. I had to go in to work today for a few hours then I went to a bbq baby shower and I just got home. I know I know, I should be more prepared like the other girls and plan my posts out, but that would just be easy! Maybe I will do that for our TLR Post for Thursday.

I have a thing for cobalts and this is absolutely no exception , It’s Topshops Mariachi Madness. I stamped Darling Diva’s Diamond using PUEEN28’s stamp.

I love using holos during the summer for the awesome glitter holo in the sunlight so I love the subtle ness with the Diamond overtop the cobalt.

Don’t forget to check out the other girls looks and come back Thursday for my pick for our other collaboration post series.

Stamping Saturday – Memorial Day

I know.. I know.. I am very late in posting my SS look this week! :/ As I mentioned in my other post my sister is visiting, and today she came over to help me garden. I went to Lowes and got some edging rocks to match what I already have out front and some bags of dirt… well my Stepdad went with me and they dropped a brick on his truck and scratched it and I felt Terrible!!! 😦 My sister and I planted the butterfly bush and lilac bush I picked up last weekend! I love it 🙂 I’ve also been pretty sick the last couple of weeks so I apologize for the lack of posts recently . :/

 

Although Memorial Day is so much more than just the un-official start to Summer, I did some festive nails for the occasion. I painted two coats of Nina Ulta Pro’s Cobalt and then Darling Diva’s Home of the Brave. I then stamped Ulta’s Snow White using my Red Angel stamp RA319.

This glitter topper is so special and I saved it just for this occasion! This is one of Darling Diva’s ‘Cause’ polishes. 100% of the proceeds from this purchase goes to the DAV in her fathers honor as he is a Vietnam Veteran. I absolutely love this topper and love how special it is to her, which makes it special to me. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but my husband was in the Army and he went to Iraq twice. I am also involved in my local American Legion where we give back to the community and give back to our Veteran and Active Duty families, those serving overseas, Homeless Veterans, Disabled Veterans, etc. like this. The polish is $10.00 and can be found here

So while you are having your BBQ’s this weekend and celebrating the un-official start to summer, please take the time to remember those who have died for our Freedom. Happy Memorial Day everyone.

NOTD 146 – Mint shells

Hey guys! So today I have some texture nails for you, which for any of you that know me, I usually hate. I thought that because the shell shards were mainly flat it wouldn’t be so bad, I was wrong, this mani drove me crazy not even 24 hours after I did it. 😦 The issue with texture I think that bothers me the most is when I am washing my hair in the shower… If it’s too textured it pulls on my hair or gets stuck; these were no exception.

I loved this concept and it was cool for the two days I wore it, but don’t think I will be doing these again :/

I first painted two coats of “Sally Hansen – Mint Sorbet” then I had these green shell shards that I placed on after the second coat one nail at a time while the second coat was still wet.

This next picture is a little more green but I  just loved the way the shell shards captured.
