Springtime Fun!!!

Hi Dolls!!! Now Springtime is full swing and pollen is EVERYWHERE:) They say inspiration can come from the strangest places... so here is my pollen inspired mani:) For this mani I used China Glaze Girls Just Wanna Have Sun for my base! I love this pale yellow creme it is so gorgeous!!! I stamped Zoya  Tilda a light grass green creme using Ejiubas plate EJB-01 from the Wonders Of Life collection:) 

This mani turned out better that I could have hoped!!!! I have always stayed away from stamping with colors mostly because it is so hard to find colors that stamp without having to buy "stamping polish"!!!! But really it is just trial and error to see what works, and this clearly works:) Hope you are having a great week!!!!

Dotted Half Moon Mani:)

Hey Dolls!!!! So for today's mani I did a simple dotted Half Moon:) I grabbed one of my new favorites China Glaze Too Yacht too Handle!!! I say new favorite, because after having this in my stash for a while and not using it I finally broke it out:) This beauty is a true neon aqua/teal, something I have been searching for!!! I accented it with China Glaze I'd Melt for You and a simple Half Moon Dotting:)

I really like the combo of these two together!!! And the formula on both of these beauties is perfection!!! Hope you are having a great week!!!

Modern French with a Twist

Happy Friday Dolls!!!! I have really had a surge of inspiration for nail art lately, I feel like I am finally getting back into my groove :) So for today's mani I did a modern twist on the classic french mani:) I did a creme gradient with full coverage pink and white, stamped on a square pattern in white and then matted the whole thing!!! 

I used China Glaze Pink or Swim and White on White for the gradient, stamped Konad White using Bundle monster plate BM-320! I finished this mani with China Glaze Matte Magic:) This is a super easy mani to wear, just like a classic french it goes with everything!!! Hope you all have a great weekend:)

St. Patty's Day Mani!!!!

Hey Dolls!!!! St. Patty's Day is tomorrow, get ready for green beer and kiss me I'm Irish shirts EVERYWHERE!!! I had to put some green on my nails to celebrate, so I grabbed 2 of my favorites from Chirality!!! Katydid, a gorgeous light green holo and Kale, a perfect dark green holo!!!! I added some accents with gold striping tape, and a couple of hand painted shamrocks!!!! 

 how this turned out!!!! I will say striping tape is a pain in the butt to work with, not to mention if you don't seal the edges securely they will snag and pull up!!! So are you rocking Green on this day of Irish Celebration?!?!? If not you can grab either or both of these colors @ Chirality for $8 per color!!!!

Zoya Petals

Happy Hump Day!!!! Time changes in just a few days so don't forget to spring forward, and you know what that means?!?!?!? WARMER weather!!! And with the warmer weather out come the Spring colors!!!! Zoya's new collection Petals is perfect for Spring!!! It is a six piece collection of shimmery, flowery, feminine colors:)  All Swatches are 3 coats with an accent nail of Leia gradient nail art!!
*Press Sample*
Aster is up first, a beautiful periwinkle with a strong silver shimmer!!!! This one is my favorite, it has a nice cool tone with just a hint of fuchsia flecks:) 

Zahara, a nice warm coral/orange with a rich opalescent effect:) This gem looks more like a sunbleached tangerine on my skin:( But I think it would be great with a nice tan!!!!

Tulip is a creamy pastel salmon with just a hint of sliver shimmer!!! I love the thought of this polish but not sure about how it looks on me?!?!? 

Laurel, is a soft shimmery petal pink:) This is such a classic color and has a cooler toned base to it that make it so easy to wear!!!!

Azalea, is a vibrant medium pink with a strong silver/fuchsia shimmer!!!!  This polish applies and looks so much like a foil, it just feels a little out of place in this collection... However this one had the most opaque coverage and I will definitely be wearing this on my toes!!! 

Leia is the last in this collection and the Stand Out in my opinion!!!! This gem is a sheer opalescent white with flashes of Fuchsia, green and gold depending on angle and light!!!! I am in love with with polish and it will be getting a lot of love from me!!!!

So overall I like this collection, I am not blown away except by Leia and Aster... I think the transitions of heavy to light shimmer is too much:( maybe all heavy, all light, or half and half... It's my ocd coming out in me!!! This collection is available now @!!!
