Small Hearts, BIG Love

I wanted to try out some new Stick It! Nail Vinyls since there's so many new one being released and these Small Heart Stencils are too cute to resist! 

I wanted to do something simple that really showcased the vinyl design and I think I'm in love! So cute and fun, want to see?

I started with a base of ILNP Mega(S), when it was dry I placed the Small Heart Stencils over my middle and ring nail. I sponged over the stencil with CBL The Heart Bleeds and peeled off the stencils immediately. I cut one stencil in half and placed one half on my pinky and index nails and used a dotting tool to fill in just one heart with CBL The Heart Bleeds. I removed the vinyls immedaitely and sealed everything in with a layer of Seche Vite


I love how simple these nails were to create and the end result is just so sweet!

What do you guys think?

Thanks loves :)

The Jewels

I've offically fallen in love!

In love with this nail design! You guys know that I'm a sucker for jewel toned manicures and oh my gosh, these are SO jewel toned! ;) I won't bore you with the silly details, let's just get to the look!

I started with a base of Wet n Wild Black Creme. When it was dry I stamped over each nail using CBL Lilac Petals and Turq'd and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-S113. I finished it off with a quick coat of Seche Vite!


So much love! These are so fun and did I mention blindly sparkly?! I wish I had gotten a sun shot for you guys, but who knows, this may be the first manicure design that I recreate soon ;)

What do you guys think?

Thanks loves :)

A Blank Canvas

I'm never going to get tired of testing out these stamping polished by Colors by Llarowe! I'm also never going to stop being amazed by how perfect they are!

I wanted to see how the stamping polishes would show up over a white base and I'm glad I tried it because the result is super cool! Want to see?

I started with a base of OPI Alpine Snow. When it was dry I stamped over each nail using CBL Enchanted Forest and Lilac Petals and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-710. I sealed it in with one coat of Seche Vite top coat and that was it!


I love how stamping over the white base really showcases how crisp these polishes stamp. Getting crisp images with a holographic polish isn't a small feat and I have to say these polishes are quickly moving their way up to my favorites!

What do you guys think?

Thanks loves :)

Tone on Tone

Oh hi guys!

Been a while huh? Man I can't even begin to tell you how hectic life has been, I've had teeny tiny nubs for SO LONG, it's good to finally have some length again to do some art with ;)

Let's just get to the nitty gritty, NAILS! Woo! I recently purchased a few of Colors by Llarowe stamping polishes to play with and OH MY GOD, I literally can't even. Yep I just went all teenage girl on you right now, but it's SO warranted once you see these polishes! I'm super amazed with how well they stamp, so you guys will probably be seeing quite a few manis using them in the near future.

Moving on, mint has been my go to color lately (always) so I tried out some tone on tone stamping. It's a bit more subtle in photos then it was in real life, but I think you guys will love it anyways!

I started with a base of China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle. Next I stamped over each nail using CBL Turq'd and the Winstonia Say I Do plate. I sealed everything in with Seche Vite top coat and that was it! Take a look for yourselves!


Minty goodness!

I almost prefer how subtle it looks, it gives it a classic feel.

What do you guys think?

Thanks loves :)

Tribal Sparkle

Oh HI guys!

I did it again didn't I? I went totally MIA on you T.T
My office is currently in pieces, we decided to paint the room and we both realized that we HATE painting walls LOL! So it's taking..... a while. But I had done this sparkly tribal print mani a little while ago and forgot all about it! I don't know how, I LOVE this look! 

I started by creating a gradient using Cupcake Polish Imagine and Believe. When my nails were dry I applied some Tribal Water Decals by the Born Pretty Store. I sealed it all in with some Seche Vite and that was it!


I LOVE this look so much! SO fun and SO sparkly! 

What do you guys think?

Thanks loves :)

Pretty in Green

With St. Patrick's Day quickly approaching I thought it was about time to break out some green polishes! I don't tend to gravitate towards green polishes often but every time I do them I question why that is because I LOVE them! And I got to use some Stick It! Nail Vinyls Multi Clover Stencils for the first time and the final product? Brilliant!

I started off with a base of Blackheart Beauty Jealous Type on my index, middle, and pinky nails and Color Club Kismet on my ring and thumb nails. When the polishes were dry I appliled the Multi Clover Stencils over each nail and sponged over them with Color Club Kismet on my index, middle, and pink nails and Blackheart Beauty Jealous Type on my ring and thumb nails. I removed the stencils and sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite and that was it!


I have to say I've never been the biggest fan of St. Patrick's Day, I don't not like it but more often then not it passes without me even noticing ;) BUT! These nails are super cool and hey who knows, maybe I'll even celebrate this year!

What do you guys think?

Nudie Ruffian

Sometimes simple is the best thing you can do.

Don't get me wrong I love crazy fun colors and intricate and beautiful designs but sometimes I like the simple and clean look of a natural manicure, like this one!

I started off with a base of OPI Alpine Snow and when it dried I painted the ruffian using a small nail art brush and Colors By Llarowe Hot Buttered Rum. I sealed it all in with some Seche Vite to finish off the look!


I absolutely LOVED wearing this look! So simple, so pretty! It was nice to take a short break from color and do something like this, I don't think I use these colors near enough.

What do you guys think?
Thanks loves :)
