Dotted Transitions

Hi Lovelies!

I've had a bit of time off and yet it's been so hot that trying to do anything even remotely productive, including my nails, has been a challenge. I'm such a wimp when it comes to heat. It makes me way too mellow and lazy. I suppose it is a good thing I don't live somewhere that is hot most of the year or I would never get anything done. That being said, I'm pulling out a manicure from the archives to share with you. This one is created with shades from the Dazzle Dry Beach Ready collection from 2014!! Beats me why I didn't post it back then...

Forever After Floral

Hello Hello!

Today I have another manicure with a few of the soon to be released Glam Polish beauties. I've been dreaming of doing a floral such as this for a while and these polishes lent themselves perfectly to the task. So bright and fun with just the right amount of sparkle...

Glam Polish Love Always Finds a Way

Hi Lovelies!

Today I would like to show you a manicure inspired by a crystal pineapple necklace which I brought home as a souvenir from my trip to Hawaii last year. The color matched so well that I thought it would be fun to take it one step further in the matchy-matchy department...

More Love, Less Hate!

Hi Everyone!

I have decided to join a bunch of sweet and talented ladies in the Facebook group Rainbow Pride Nails for Orlando and show my support for Orlando after the terrible tragedy of last weekend. It was such a devastating and senseless attack that affected far too many innocent people and I am left at a loss for words as I struggle to comprehend how anyone can commit such a horrific act of violence. My heart breaks for all the lives lost and for the loved ones left to carry on. It is heartwarming to see people from all over the world join in support and I'm glad to show my support today as well...

Psychedelic Stamping

Hi Lovelies!

How is your week starting out? I didn't get as much done this weekend as I had hoped, but I can't say that I'm sorry for taking some time to just be lazy and relax. However since I was so lazy, today I would like to share with you another manicure out of the archives. I'm having so much fun going through old photos and remembering the manis. I created this manicure while playing around with the Glam Polish Hairspray collection in early 2015. It was one of my favorite collections and looking back at the manis I created with it makes me want to play all over again...

Dance Legend Binary Marina and Olga with Nicole Diary Water Decals

Hi Everyone!

What do you do when you want some quick nail art, but don't have time for stamping, vinyls, freehand, etc? I have recently developed a rather unhealthy obsession with water decals because of how easy and convenient they are. They are great for everyday wear, but they are also awesome for travel. Just toss a few designs into your luggage along with the nail polish and you can sport some nail art on your trip without the hassle of dragging a lot of supplies. All you need is water and a bit of acetone for cleanup.

Every once in a while, my mom request that when I come to visit, I give her a manicure. I used to lug all my stamping plates and polishes to give her a choice of design, but for the last few manis, we've switched to water decals and LOVE it! Not only is it so much quicker now, but it is easier for her to pick out designs and I know they'll turn out great. That being said, when a new company, Nicole Diary, offered me a few of their water decals to try out, I gladly agreed. I'm going to show you two of them today...

Subtle Stamping

Hi Everyone!

It has been a crazy week for me and although it is the weekend and time to relax for a lot of people, it is my weekend to work because I guess 'there ain't no rest for the wicked'. Ha! To make up for lack of time to paint my nails, I thought I'd show you another mani out of the archive. I've only got a few more to show you and then I will be all caught up. Gasp!

This mani is one that I wore last year for Hanukkah. The stamping turned out more subtle than I had anticipated and I remember being indecisive about whether I liked it or not. I'm still a bit torn, but definitely leaning toward liking it. Is there such a thing as too subtle?

Stamped Roses

Hi Lovelies!

Have you ever sat down to create a manicure having one thing in mind and ended up creating something entirely different? Such is the case of this rosy manicure. When Polished by KPT Rouge-Lette In Love was released in the Fall of 2014, I thought it would make the perfect base for some brick stamping. That manicure didn't turn out how I envisioned and hence it never made a debut on the blog. Last week, however, I got the urge to recreate that manicure, although obviously with some adjustments. As you can see, at the last minute I had a change of heart and bricks turned into roses...
