Add some blood to the lace…

I know I did blood spatters last year too, but I just love it… probably has to do with how much I love Dexter?

I used the 60 second Rimmell polish in Rapid Ruby and the Konad plates m13 and m21.

I have an awesome vampiress costume and no where to wear it… Halloween snuck up on me. I’ll probably watch scary movies with my fiance and eat chocolate though, which I can’t complain about of course. And his Mom gave us glow sticks. haha! I’ll be playing with those!

I’ll probably pick the giveaway winners tomorrow, so you still have all day to enter! 🙂

Lacey B&W French

I did this one yesterday before going out to meet my parents, fiance, and fiance’s family for dinner. I love how well we all get along and have fun…

I can’t believe I was able to just do a french tip on my own nails instead of having to put pink first… its because of the Illamasqua Base Coat, I swear! It has kept my nails from getting stained! Now that I’ve used it all month, the stained part has grown out to the end and my real nails look normal again. I love that base coat so very much, thank you Illamasqua!

I used Orly – White Tips, then stamped the fishnet design from the konad plate m79 and finally, the straight ribbon strip from a rectangular essence stampy plate, with Konad – Black Pearl.

One of my most favorite nail bloggers is having an OMG giveaway, you gotta go see it. She always does the coolest things with her nails too!

Shocking Pink Konad!

I wore this one for days and days, until it was just about to fall off. I loved it so much! I put it on the night we went roller skating at this old historic roller rink in LA.

So if you look at my last post, I started with the China Glaze – Shocking Pink, but then I took the Color Club – Screamin Fuschia and went over it in places so that it had a neon pink with neon reddish pink blend. I stamped over it with Konad Black Pearl.

The plate I used for this one was A10, which you can actually buy at that place in the link root, but I think I got it from TransDesign or ChezDelaney.

It isn’t summer anymore so I guess I won’t be doing neon again for a while!

ManGlaze – Mayonnaise & hot pinks to stamp with!

This was some experimenting I did before the french manicure that I posted in my last post!

First, I put a layer of ManGlaze – Mayonnaise on, so that I could see what these hot pinks were going to look like over white!

Here is a swatch, its a matte white polish with some shimmer!

Here were my hot pinks and one neon green I was going to try while I was at it:

From left to right, those are Color Club – Screamin Fucshia, Konad – Psyche Pink, Sally Hansen – Sonic Bloom, a Kiss nail art polish in Bikini Coral, Revlon Scented – Raspberry Rapture, Sally Hansen – Orange You Cute, Zoya – Ali, Illamasqua – Lament, Diamond Cosmetics nail art polish in neon green, Essie – Pink Parka, and Zoya – Lolly

The 3 on the right didn’t work at all (Diamond Cosmetics nail art polish in neon green, Essie – Pink Parka, and Zoya – Lolly)! But all of the ones on the right did!

Here they are stamped with the new bundle monster plates!

Mother's Day french tips

I wanted to do a french manicure and stamp some pink flowers on. I actually tested a lot of different hot pinks over white, and I’ll upload photos of my experimenting later, but I went with a mix of Konad Psyche Pink and Color Club Screamin Fucshia!

I also put little dots of silver inside the tiny little flowers. The flowers were from Essence stampy plate… hmm it doesn’t have a number, but its a mini rectangle plate!

These pictures were actually taken 3 days later, and it doesn’t look very worn, so I think I found a good combo for my tips!

I just did Orly Anchor, then Orly Bonder, then Orly White Tips. I cleaned the line up with the brush and just put clear Color Club Vivid Top Coat on.

That’s the longest I’ve had it last with no worn out tips!

Nail Stamping Tutorial

I wanted to send Jules and Olivia for giving me the blog awards (below) so I sent them a new Bundle Monster plate. Olivia said she’s never done any nail stamping at all, so I sent her a stamper and a Revlon metallic silver polish to try stamping with.

I also made her a quick tutorial video and put it on YouTube, so I’ll post it here.

When I did my Easter Giveaway, the thing that was said the most in response to me asking if there’s anything you’d like to see more of was tutorials! So here’s my first one… I WILL use a better camera next time and I won’t be such a spaz maybe? 🙂

New plates! Yippee!

I was already excited because I have my new Zoyas on the way from their new collection, my first haul from eyeko, some more aqmore polishes, and someone just swapped me Copper Rulez magnetic polish finally!

Then I saw this!! Bundle Monster is releasing 25 NEW PLATES! And we only have to wait about 3 more weeks! Not only will we have tons of new plates, but their all-over stamps are bigger this time, so no having to stamp twice and overlap!

I saw a couple of teaser previews on their facebook page. I am so excited already!

PEPPERMINT TIPS! Sorry about the caps, but I can’t take the excitement!

More flowers and spirals… and even if I just used the tree from that Halloween one I’d love it!

I hope they continue with the teaser previews…

I always wished they would make a stamp of a coffee cup, or coffee beans. I wish someone would! But oh am I ever going to have some cute peppermint tips!
