Sunday Stamping featuring OPI Sheer Tints

Hey there!  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend.  It's time for another instalment of Sunday Stamping.  This week's theme was combining another technique with stamping.  I decided to try a (cheater) watercolor mani with stamping.  After the jump there's also a bonus with my first attempt at the "Leadlight" or glazing technique.

Easter Eggs with Born Pretty Pastel Studs

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I have another Born Pretty Store review to bring you.  This one is for the lighter colour 2 mm studs (item ID #7218).  I decided to try an early easter egg look with the round studs using some Picture Polish pastel shades underneath.  Perfect of the spring that I have yet to see this year...

Femme Fatale & Rainbow Honey Swatches


Hey there!  Today I have some swatches that I received from the Australian polish maker and distributor, Femme Fatale.  I've been a long time fan of their glitter/jelly polishes so it was really exciting to try out some of their holographics as well and I must say, I'm impressed.

Sunday Stamping - Skyline Nails

Hey there!  I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  It's time again for my favourite post of the week.  These week's Sunday stamping challenge theme was Skyline nails and I loved these so so much.  I tried to emulate the sunrise behind my skyline with a gradient and some pretty, fluffy clouds using all China Glaze polishes.

Camo Nail Art & OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh

Hey there!  Here's yet another green nail art post.  The fourth in a row!  This one was inspired by a couple of my curling teammates who also happen to be huge outdoorsmen.  I know there's lots of camouflage nail art out there but here's my attempt.

Born Pretty Store Panda Water Decals

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Awhile back Nicole from Born Pretty contacted me asking if I'd review their items.  I was already a long time customer of the Born Pretty store thanks to their low prices and free shipping so I jumped on the chance.  One of the items I choose to review were these adorable panda water decals.

Sunday Stamping - St. Patrick's Day

Hey there!  This week's Adventures in Stamping Sunday Challenge theme is St. Patrick's Day.  Somehow the St. Paddy's Day look I came up with doesn't have any shamrocks or leprechauns or beer.  How did that happen?!

Layered Fire Stamping using Mentality polishes

Nothing to Disclose

Hey there!  Today I wanted to show you some stamping I did awhile back after I purchased my first Mentality polishes.  I'm always on the look out for good stamping polishes and Mentality has a whole line of "Stampers" so I had to try them out.  The images I used were both from the Messy Mansion MM27 plate, the "fire and ice" plate.

Sunday Stamping - Under The Sea

Hey there!  The computer drama continues but it's working enough at the moment that I get to post my first Adventures in Stamping Sunday challenge mani in weeks!  This week's theme is "Under The Sea" which I thought was a great theme...until I realized I didn't have many fish stamping images so here's three mani's using the same image in all three.

Celestial Cosmetics Review


Hey there!  I'm back!!  I've missed you guys!  It's been almost 2 weeks since my last post thanks to my laptop deciding that it wanted to have its final resting ground be in Hawaii...very stressful!  I've become very good at googling computer issues.  At the moment I have a band-aid on it until I get a new one so I thought I'd write up a post while I can.

Tonight I have polishes from the Australian indie brand, Celestial Cosmetics, that I recently received for review from the lovely Sisi at Color4Nails.  As usual, Celestial doesn't fail to impress...
