Back from vacation and back in routine, or at least trying to be. I don't haul my full nail kit when I travel (it would need its own car!) so I picked up a few cheapies from Dollar Tree to add some variety.
Pure Ice Silver Star (1 coat) with Milani HD (2 coats).
Must love nail mail :D! Today I would like to welcome Shany 2012 set to my stamping plate family. They arrived this afternoon I tried to take photos but it only confused my poor poor camera (it actually repeatedly shut off in protest). So please check out this post from Katsy Nail Crazy for some awesome close ups. I'm currently sporting the hummingbird from SH17.
Also went on a mini haul with my $10 off $20 Sally's coupon (she post them every month so keep your eyes open!) and a trip to Wal-Mart. Side note you don't see many Wal-Mart polishes in my stash because of my personal ethical issues with the company so I keep shopping there to once or twice a year for special items. Anyway this trip yielded what I think will be several wonderful stamping polishes including a possible A-England Excalibur (original) dupe! Hope to have a chance to play and show them to you sometime in the future.
I didn't think it would get me but darn the texture trend pulled me in! You get one to try it out....then you need a sparkly one....then you need on for nail art....then you need to check out other brands to compare right? That's how it gets ya ;) and well me being me I had to take it a step past that and stamp it.
Well at least in my manicures they are ;)! Tonight I have some fantastical flakies to show you. This manicure is a perfect example of the beauties of layering that cannot be achieved in a single polish.
Got some holy holo goodness for you today! I wish the weather had been nicer to capture the full spectrum of its awesomeness but it was pretty brilliant even if the sun didn't feel like coming out to greet it.
Hello blogiverse :) I've missed you! Today I begin to catch up some swatch spam. Spent nearly two hours yesterday uploading, organizing, and editing several months worth of pictures from my camera. Considering I only do my nails about twice a week that's not as much as you would think but its quite the process to weed out all the bad ones.
Today I bring you Zoya Paz with LynBDesigns Wait, Wait, Wait. Is This a Kissing Book.
Boy has it! I cant believe its been so long :(. Ah the woes of the digital age, no computer, no uploads, no photos, no blogging. But I'm working my way back and have a few things to catch you up on :).
First a little photo spam -
Barielle Swizzle Stick with Candeo Julep.
(Darn that disappearing watermark! Tried 4 times already)
A-England Tristam stamped with Color Club Lumen-Icent and plate SE18.
Hello Chickadee's! Just because I lost all my recent photos doesn't mean I cant take more :). Today's manicure is from the tried and true pile Sinful Colors Vacation Time with a twist, my first attempt with water decals.
