Typical French Mani with a twist....

    June 30, 2011

    Today I have the typical french manicure for you but with added flare. I was happy with the way it turned out and curious to know what you think of this mani....(P.S. Sorry for the red cuticles... some red/fuchsia polishes can be staining/hard to remove.. Right Brandy?!)

    Step 1: Using OPI Metro Chic, I painted on messy tips. I did not use stickers to define my tips. Once you put on the glitter polish, it hides the "unevenness". So save your time with the stickers. I did two coats on the tips. I have also included a photo with this color on my entire nail. This is a very soft purple/grey color. 

    Step 2: Put one THIN, layer of OPI It's Bouquet with Me on the entire nail. 

    Step 3: Place a generous amount of OPI It's Bouquet with Me on the tip of your nail (see photo to the right). Then smear the "ball" to cover your entire tip. You can add a second coat if you want. I did not in my final photos.

    Here is the final product again!!!!

Fellow nail bloggers... I have a question for you...

    Lets talk..... nail polish collection storage....

    Does anyone have a post about how they store their nail polish collection? I am seriously outgrowing my current storage idea, and I have no clue what to do next. I am not talking about just the polish, but the stickers, polish remover, cotton pads, stamping plates, dotting tools, etc.....please share your storage solutions with me. I need something I can grow into as well. Thanks for sharing!!!!

Purple Swirl...

    June 28, 2011

    I think this design would look great with any combination of colors. I choose darker colors because I like my patterns to pop.

    I used two coats of Sinful Colors Fiji for the base coat. Then I used Konad regular polish in pastel lavender (even though it looks pastel blue in the photo...darn flash...) and Konad stamping plate (m78) to stamp on the pattern! This manicure was very simple and fast to do...

    I hope you like it as much as I did! Let me know what you would like to see in my next designs!

Monday Madness...

    June 27, 2011 Monday Madness

    I have noticed that fellow nail bloggers dedicate one or more days a week to a specific theme such as blues Monday (where the nail design features blue...check out this blog http://apolishedtouch.blogspot.com/),  nail tips of the day/week (check out this blog http://nailstonic.blogspot.com/), or share with you Sunday (where the blogger shares a piece of her life with her followers... check out this blog http://imperfectlypainted.blogspot.com/). I thought I would start something similar since it is a really good idea. On Mondays, I will dedicate the day to posting a new nail trend or unique nail design idea that is new to me and hopefully my followers. Let me know what you think of this idea...

    So today's Monday Madness features textured nails!!!!   

    This design is new to me, and I can NOT wait to try it. Most of us are familiar with the matte finishes. Well textured nails combine the matte and shiny finishes...  Or you could just add a second layer on top of the shiny or matte finish--kinda creating a layered/raised nail design. Check out these pics I found on the web. I am not a fan of the design in this picture but you get the idea of what a textured nail looks like. Has anyone tried it before?
