RGB – Crimson with Snowflakes!

Merry Christmas!! 🙂

Here is RGB – Crimson with snowflakes stamped in Konad white. The plates were m59 and T37.

I hate these awkward ones where I try to get my thumb in too. haha!

The polish is such a dream! Its the perfect dark red that still looks really red and its a jelly!!

Finger Paints – Cordur Orange with Leaves

I couldn’t wait to finally wear Cordur Orange! It was finally the right time for it. I love burnt orange but never wore it on my nails before.

I stamped the leaves with the new Sally Hansen Insta Dri – Cocoa A Go Go!

Happy Thanksgiving!

(Sorry about the lighting, couldn’t get one during the day!)

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!

Nails for my New Orleans trip! :)

This took forever, but I love how it ended up! I wish it was sunnier so I could get a better picture, but here it is for now…

This is a layer of OPI – Black Onyx, a layer of Nicole by OPI – Nicole’s Nickel, a stripe of Black Onyx on the top corner with OPI – Sanguine on top of that black stripe, then the bow stamped with Konad white!

I also put the Shellac base coat first, then at the end I did the Shellac top coat and cured it 2x so that this will last… hopefully at least a week and a half or 2? 🙂

I love that Konad bow plate, I need to use it more often. It is m7.

(I’m adding a black with silver glitter nail art striping polish to the Halloween Giveaway, I thought it would be a good one to go with those!)

Some randomness..

taintwithglittergal– I just pre-ordered Anne from rescuebeauty.com so I’m finally going to get my hands on it!

– My picks from the Let it Snow and the Muppets collections are coming this week, and I couldn’t resist a couple of the new BB Coutures.

– I’m tasting the food at the venue I hope to have my wedding reception at, wish me luck, all that needs to happen is that the food is good… oh pleeeeease.

– What dark red shimmer will stamp well over a dark color? They don’t really make red chromes to stamp with! I have the red Sally Hansen Chrome but its more like a pink. I thought I’d at least be successful with the Glitter Gal Red holo, but look… I put it over Illamasqua Taint and it didn’t really come out!

Anyone know of a good red chrome or shimmer to stamp over a dark color?

– My newest Wish List -> Revlon Starry Pink, Nicole by OPI Sounds Grape To Me, Finger Paints Cordur Orange, Duri Grape Swirl, and MAC Dark as Night lip gloss.

– I’m so excited about going back to New Orleans this week I could explode! What shall I do with my nails for the trip… hmmmmm……..

Shocking Pink Konad!

neonkonad

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!
