  • A England Snowflakes

    Hey there! How are you? I've been so bad at posting here the last few months. Thanks for still swinging by now and then, though. How is your holiday season going so far? I've had a good month so far, decorating my house for my second Christmas in my home and staying warm now that Colorado Springs finally welcomed winter. 

    I've still been busy with nail art though! Here's a mani I painted and stamped with two A England polishes. A England was the first indie polish I heard of and I immediately fell in love with the gorgeous colors and flawless formula! 

    This snowflake image from Bundle Monster stamped perfectly with MoYou Londond's clear stamper. It's so exciting when the image transfers exactly how it was meant to! 

    Supplies:

    A England - Lady of the Lake

    A England - Fonteyn

    Bundle Monster Plate - S213

    Seche Vite - Dry Fast Top Coat

    And because I haven't posted here much lately, here are a few manis I've painted this last week inspired by winter and Christmas.

  • MoYou London|Crystal Clear Stamper

    Hello, there! I can't believe how long it's been since I posted. So sorry about that. I'm very grateful for work but I must say, it takes a lot of my energy so even when I paint my nails I tend to only post on Instagram since it's so quick.

    Anyway, I hope you're well and are enjoying the beautiful autumn weather! I recently purchased another clear stampper, my third. This one is from MoYou London. It's called "Your Best Crystal Clear Stamp & Scraper" and I must say, the name is very accurate! Here's the first mani I used it for and I was so excited at how perfectly it picked up and transferred the images. It's also very large so it's very simple to see all the way through it when placing the image on your nail. 

    Ther you have it, friends! If you're looking for the best clear stamper yet, I highly recommend this one! It's available on the MoYou London site and they ship internationally.

    I hope you have a wonderful day and I hope to see you again soon! 

    Supplies:

    Cirque - Hold Fast Base Coat

    Cirque - Shred The Gnar

    A England - Encore Margot

    Seche Vite - Dry Fast Top Coat

    MoYou London Plate - Suki 08

    MoYou London - Crystal Clear Stamper

  • First of Steampunk

    Happy Friday!! I had an intense week but it ended up well. I have a cool stamped mani to show you today. One of MoYou London's stamping plate collections is called Steampunk. This is my first Steampunk plate and I love the images on it! I chose a couple favorite polishes to create this mani. 

    I love the contrast of these two polishes together and I think they bring out the edges of this image perfectly! I also used my Cosette Clear Stamper to stamp this image super straight. I was having a bit of trouble with a few polishes transferring to the clear stampers but the A England holo transferred so well! I'll be stamping more soon, of course, so this is only the First of Steampunk!

    I hope you have a great weekend!

    Suppies:

    Seche Clear - Base Coat

    Picture Polish - Lakodom

    A England - Bridal Veil

  • Paisley

    Hi, hi! Welcome to Wednesday! How is your week going? I'm having a great one! I took a few days off this week just for a well needed break and have spent time with my BFF who is in town. We went shopping for things for my new little house that I'll move into at the end of the month; so fun! I haven't taken much time to paint my nails but I did paint this one. 

    I've had this Picture Polish shade for a while and swatched it but hadn't used it for any art until now. I really like how this turned out! I added the turquoise sparkle on top to give it a little something extra. I need to remember this one because it would be doable in many colors! And I don't think you can ever go wrong with a paisley design.

    I hope you have a great rest of the day! Halfway to the weekend!

    Seche Clear - Base Coat

    Picture Polish - Tango

  • Teal

    Hey there! How are you? I can't believe it's Monday again. I was out of the office really sick all last week 😞 but I'm thankfully on the mend now. I'm back on my nail game and have a great Cirque duo to show you today. Here are Tavern On The Teal and Cerrillos.

    This mani is better than I'd hoped! I absolutely love how Cerrillos stamped and it's just the right amount of accent over the cream teal.

    I hope you are having a good start to the week! Thank you for swinging by!

    Cirque - Holdfast Base Coat

  • MoYou Rainbow Contest Part II

    Hello there! Happy weekend to you! Here is part II of the MoYou London's 20k followers contest. This post has blue, purple and pink. It's been a while since I've painted my nails every night, it's mostly just every other night ;) so this was a fun way to use some polishes and stamping images I don't normally put together. Here we go!

    Friday: Blue

    Hers is Zoya's Blu for the base and A England's Tristam (the king of everything blue) to stamp with. This is an image from the Suki 04 plate.

    Saturday: Purple

    This is the lovely Imperial from Picture Polish stamped with Essie's Nothing Else Metals. I used a portion of the Suki 08 stamping plate for the birds. 

    Sunday: Pink

    I used two O.P.I pinks for an hombre base, Mod About You and Miami Beet. The black for the lace stamping image took over the pink more than I expected but I still love the result! This is an image from the MoYou Bridal plate 06.

    Well, fellow polish-aholics, there you have it! I hope you've enjoyed watching the colors of the rainbow unfold into manicures as much as I enjoyed painting all of them. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend and, as always, thank you so much for stopping by!

  • MoYou Rainbow Contest Part I

    Hello, hello! How are you? I've been a bit absent lately...sorry about that. I've had more long days at work but I decided to participate in MoYou London's Rainbow Contest on Instagram. Each day has a differnt color for the theme and a MoYou London stamping plate must be used. Here's part one of my posts. It's been a fun challenge for sure!

    Monday: Red

    I used Picture Polish's Scarlett and stamped with Sally Hansen's Rapid Dry Grease Lightening. This is an image from MoYou London's Explorer 03 plate.

    Tuesday: Orange

    I chose Enchanted Polish's May 2014 for the base, Konad White for stamping, China Glaze Papaya Punch for the dots and the MoYou Sailor 03 plate for the image.

    Wednesday: Yellow

    I wasn't so sure about the yellow day so I chose to layer A England's Morgan Le Fay over Julep's Catrina for a softer look. I used Konad White again to stamp an image from the Pro 07 stamping plate.

    Thursday: Green

    I've collected a few green polishes over the past several months which is good because Enchanted Polish's March 2014 and A England's St. George are perfect together! I used an image from the Sailor 03 plate for this one.

    I hope you like my manis inspired by the colors of the rainbow! I'll post part two this weekend! Two of my favorite colors, blue and purple, are up next! Which color is your favorite?

    Have a great evening and I hope to see you soon! Thanks for stopping by!

  • ILNP | 1st and 15th

    Hello to you on this beautiful Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. I recently ordered four polishes from I Love Nail Polish a.k.a. ILNP. They're retiring a lot of colors so there was a sale and I bought a few. Here's one I purchased called 1st and 15th. I don't normally go for greens but this one caught my eye. 

    This grassy green holo with a drop of turquoise applied perfectly over my normal base coat. I used two coats, then a top coat before stamping and then applied another top coat. It's a great summer color for sure! I'm glad I purchased it. ILNP will be coming out with new polishes soon. Be sure to visit their site and sign up for email notifications. Stay tuned for posts on the other retired shades I chose.

    I hope you have a great day!

    Supplies:

    Seche Clear - Base Coat

    ILNP - 1st and 15th

    Konad - Black

  • Princess Sabra

    Hi there, how are you today? I have a great day ahead of me! Part of it will be a pre-order for some super special polishes that I'll hopefully succeed in ordering but today will also be spent with loved ones. I love Sundays with family and friends. 

    I have a classic polish to show you today from A England called Princess Sabra. It's a gold holo polish with an olive tint to it. It's part of Adina's second collection called The Legend and it never disappoints. 

    I recently ordered one of the new Mother Nature stamping plates from MoYou London so I decided to add a couple accents to Princess Sabra from the new plate. I really like how this turned out. It's simple, it speaks for itself and it's classic. As always with Adina's fine polishes, Princess Sabra applies like butter and is almost completely opac with one coat but this is two. If you're interested in A England polishes, check her international stockits page to see where you can order them close to home.

    I hope you have a wonderful afternoon!

    Supplies:

    Seche Clear - Basae Coat

    A England - Princess Sabra

    Konad - Black

  • Water

    Hey there, how are you this week? I'm getting through it but haven't been as motivated to paint my nails as I usually am. Here's a fun stamped mani though that in the end turned out looking a lot like water. :)

    I tried to chose an open stamping design to let the sparkles from Geode show through but they ended up being a bit hidden. I still like the outcome though. Seems to have more depth than if I'd only used a solid cream base. 

    I hope you have a great Thursday and I hope to have more art to show you very soon. 

    Supplies:

    Picture Polish - Revolution Glitter Base

    Picture Polish - Geode

    Sally Hansen - Brisk Blue

  • Fashionably Late with Suki

    Happy Friday everyone!! I hope you had a great week. I received a couple nail mail packages over the last couple weeks and here is the second of the two Lacquer Lust polishes I bought. This is a collaboration shade called Fashionably Late between Laquer Lust and Fashion Polish who are actually sisters which is super fun! 

    I ended up stamping over Fashionaly Late with an Essie polish. I really love the images but I didn't expect them to cover as much of the base as they did. I'll have to wear Fashionably Late on its own again soon. I started with two coats of my base but depending on the thickness of how you tend to apply polish you may need three. It's an awesom blue jelly polish with small purple shimmers and purple flakies. It's really pretty! Overall with the two Lacquer Lust polishes I purchased, I'm very pleased. I'll definitely be checking the site for new collections in the future.

    I hope you have a great evening!

    Supplies:

    Seche Clear - Base Coat

    Lacquer Lust - Fashionably Late

  • White, Yellow, Rose

    Good morning! Well, at least there's about 20 more minutes to the morning where I am. :) I'm being pretty lazy today and as much as the calendar says it's spring, it's not even 30 degrees here in Colorado Springs and snow covered the city last night. So, I'm tucked away in my little place painting my nails...bummer. ;) Here's a mani inspired by a new O.P.I. glitter that has shreds of white gold, yellow gold and rose gold in it. Sooooo pretty!

    I used one of my new MoYou London stamping plates for the three stamped nails; one in each tone from the glitter. I love this glitter and I think it'll look great over a lot of colors. The shredded shapes really give it a unique look and a bit of an edge. 

    I hope you have a great Sunday afternoon and hopefully see you soon!

    Seche Clear - Base Coat

  • Make a wish...

    Happy, happy Friday! I don't know about you but I am beat! I'm so grateful it's the weekend. I've had a lot going on at work and unfortunately I've also had a bit of a slump with manicures. :( I don't know why but a handful of manis have not turned out well enough to post so, sorry about my short absence. Here's a fresh little mani, though, using brand new MoYou London stamping plates.

    I absolutely LOVE the MoYou images. It was tough to only order a few. But I narrowed it down and look forward to all the fun stamped manis to come with them. I do have to say that the images are etched deeper than Bundle Monster's images so you don't have to clean the plate between every use as I normally do with Bundle Monster. With that said, though the deeper image holds more paint so I noticed that when I would place the stamper on the image to transfer it, some of the paint ended up escaping the recessed image and spoiling the transferred image. I got the hang of it, but I thought it was worth the mention as pre-thought use. :)

    I hope you have a weekend ahead that is tailored to your liking. I am going to rest, read, and of course...paint my nails!

    Essie - Cashmere Bathrobe
