Cute right? I just love easy to do manicures. I used all sinful colors for this mani. I really like Sinful Colors they are cheap have a huge range of colors and finishes and they are pretty good quality. I've had this manicure on for a week now and still no chips! And hey look at my cleanup! Getting better! :)

Have a happy Friday. It's raining and storming in Sacramento so I will be spending the day indoors. Yay for lots of nail painting time! Hopefully the power doesn't go out. I wonder if I can paint my nails by candle light. hahahaha

Adventures in Stampland

So here I am trying stamping once more. After my first disastrous attempt I thought I'd give it a shot. I must admit this one came out slightly better than my previous attempt hahaha but it could definitely still need some work!

Kinda cute right? I love the gradient. Gradients were the first thing I learned to do and let me tell you I was terrible! I did not understand them at all. Now I adore them! If I could incorporate a gradient in every manicure I would! HAHA! I figure this stamping thing is gonna be the same..I'll be terrible for awhile and then i'll be decent! The great thing about Zebra stripes is that they can look super weird...but still kinda cool! Not to terrible right? My clean up job is atrocious. I just haven't got that down yet. :) Baby steps! Have a happy Saturday. I'm spending the night in with my honey and our very rambunctious puppy! Here he is!

Argo. VERY VERY spoiled Argo! He's four month old and a handful! But look at that face. You just can't be mad at him!

Starry Nights

Hi there!

I actually created something that i'm pretty happy with! haha I'm so hard on myself sometimes but only because I want to be the best I can be! Nothing wrong with that is it? On to the pictures!

I love it!!!! I did the gradient with Sinful Colors Midnight Blue and Sinful Colors Casablanca (silver) after I finished the gradient I did a light coat of Pure Ice Don't You Wish. The blue was already a bit shimmery so I thought the glitter over it would give it that perfect amount of sparkle. :) And then I went digging through Wet N' Wild The Star in the Show for the stars. I love those stars but man are they a pain to get out of the bottle! I finished it up with a coat of Seche. Hope you guys enjoy. I love this design!


Stamping Fail!

Hey There!

There is a nail art contest over at Creative Nail Design by Sue. It's a stamping contest. My first thought was OH GOD! You see me and stamping do not get along. AT ALL! I am absolutely terrible at it. So I thought well I might as well try right? Wellllll here's what I ended up with.

GAHHHHHH this is not what I was planning on! :( Some flowers turned out decent the rest were a hot mess! I used Orly Buried alive as the base and for the flowers I used Sinful Colors Snow White. Thats right. White!!!  So why are they yellow? I have no idea! As soon as I spread a coat of Seche Vite on top they yellowed! I don't quite mind the yellow so I guess it's ok. I'm not even sure I should enter this mess. HAHAH I'm convinced its my crappy plates fault. I'm ordering new ones as soon as I finish posting this. :)  Have a happy Friday!

Water Marble Mani

Hi there!

Today I attempted to get a water marble right. It went pretty decently. I always seem to get air bubbles no matter what I do. Grrrr! I plan on entering this in a water marble contest over at Smashley Sparkles. I just love entering nail art contests. Even if you don't win I feel like you gain so much experience and you see so many cool designs. I always take away a ton of
 inspiration! So here's what I ended up with. The light color you see is actually grey it looks kind of blue in the first pic sorry!!!

Hope you like!

Newfound Indie Lover!

I finally got some Indies! YAYYYY! I have been debating for weeks whether or not to splurge and finally I just did it! So here's what I ordered!

How pretty are these! I've been eying Skeleton Key and Cruella since I first saw them. Glitzology is on Etsy and her polishes are all very affordable. This week she is holding a $5 sale for all full size bottles!!! This sale will run until Black Friday I believe so definitely take advantage of it!

I also got this!

I am in LOVE with this polish. I saw it awhile back on Chalkboard Nails and I just knew I had to have it!!!!

It is absolutely gorgeous over black!

You can find Punk'd Up Betty at Pretty and Polished ETSY store. She has tons of unique and gorgeous colors and they are all very reasonably priced!

Saturday I went to a party and I just had to wear one of my new polishes I decided on Zoya-Lara and Glitzology- Cruella.
I got so many compliments!!! I just love it!!! That pink is so so so pretty!!

You can find Glitzology Here and Pretty and Polished Here

Hope you enjoyed reading. Ciao!

 I like the way this turned out. I love the purple that was created by the red and blue blending together.

Short post! Ciao!

Ulta Haul!

Today I went to Ulta for the first time ever! Can you believe that!!? Well lets just say it's my new favorite store! I was in polish Heaven!!! I went there mainly to pick up a couple of bottles of essence nail polish. I plan on entering a nail design contest and I needed to use Essence Nail Polish. Well I ended up coming out with these!
