Where's Santa Nail Art with Beauty Big Bang 12 Plate

Press Sample
 
Hello all! I hope you've enjoyed your weekend! I'm about to head out and do some fun things around the city, but I wanted to pop up this post! I received this plate from Beauty Big Bang just a few days ago so I wanted to throw up a post before the holidays. I ordered this hoping to use the lights image for the light prompt, but didn't receive it in time. But luckily, there's always next year!

Chanukah Nail Art

Tonight is the fourth night of Chanukah and I have a few more nail arts. It gets harder and harder to create designs, but also, Chanukah fell right on my finals. If you're a professor, you know that it's just as stressful for you as it is for the students. So today, I have a more simple design.

Good evening! I'm here with a later post because this is my first post from my new computer. I'm very anti-new electronics and dragged my feet to get a new one, but I had no choice.

Le Polish A Great Miracle Happened There, December Polish Pickup

Press Sample

Today is exciting because I have a new Polish Pickup from a brand I've never used before. Le Polish has been around for a while, and it's purely my fault that I haven't tried them before! What's even more awesome is that this polish is Chanukah-themed! There really aren't many Chanukah polishes out there. The few I did have were glitter top coats named Eight Crazy Nights. While I love Adam Sandler for repping the Jews with a song, eh. So I love the more inspirational name for this polish!

But my cousin was telling me how she swears by these powders, and well, I had to sit down and give this a shot!

Fair Maiden In Omnia Paratus with Umbrella Stamping

Press Sample and Custom Gift

Today is a super special nail polish day! If you didn't know, I am an avid Gilmore Girls fan. I watched the series with my mom while it aired on WB! Every Tuesday night, we would sit down and enjoy the show together! I went to college the last 2 seasons and my mom recorded it on VHS (HOW OLD AM I?! lol) and we would binge the season over weekends that I came home. So many memories! So when I won a custom with Fair Maiden, I knew I wanted it Gilmore themed! And better yet, there's an EVERY EPISODE EVER marathon on UP channel right now, so I've been binging myself haha!

Acorn Nail Art: Reverse Stamping with Girly Bits over Blush Lacquer

Press Sample

Hi all! Sorry for the late post today, but it happens! I actually JUST took this mani off today and it was so cute! So many people stopped to look at my hand! I just love autumn and I love the images that are associated with the season. I knew I had to do this acorn image!

Acorn Nail Art:  Reverse Stamping with Girly Bits over Blush Lacquer

I started with a base of Blush Lacquer Nerida Singer, which I bought last April at Polish Con. I needed three coats for opaqueness. Holy cow, I LOVE THIS COLOR!!

Then I grabbed 3 of the new Girly Bits fall cremes, and went to town! I used the Lina Autumn 01 plate for the acorn image and stamped with Stump Up the Jam. I filled in the top of the acorns with Butternut Leave Me and filled in the bottom with Acornucopia. I'm so cheesy but it was the perfect fit! Then I matte it, and I loved it! These Girly Bits cremes are amazing! I'll be back with a lot more art and proper swatches later.

I loved this look shiny also, but it was so shiny that it was difficult to photograph! The top coat is Girly Bits What A Rush, which dries super fast!
