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!

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!
