Jelly Sandwich Using Mentality Rachel and China Glaze Techno

I was in the mood for a super quick and easy mani this time so I did a jelly sandwich using Mentality Rachel and China Glaze Techno. Mentality Rachel is a vibrant teal-cobalt jelly. My camera did not want to capture the vibrancy so I did do a little after photo shoot tweaking. The color of the polish is more accurate than the originals, but my skin looks a little orange. I hope that's better than the polish looking too washed out! I did one layer of Mentality Rachel and then one layer of China Glaze Techno. Then, I repeated that. I love how this turned out!



Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Stamping for Tri-Polish Tuesday!

It's the last Tuesday in July, can you believe it? This also means that it's the last tri-polish Tuesday of my favorite color combo ever! This month's combo for Crumpet's Nail Tarts is pink, green, and purple. I always gravitate toward my Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Polishes when I want to stamp. I just wish they made a white and a black in this formula! Could someone contact their CEO and let them know that for me? Thanks! This week, I picked Sally Hansen Jade Jump, Sally Hansen Sumac Sonic, and Sally Hansen In a Haze. (In a Haze was originally given to me as a press sample here.) I picked Vivid Lacquer Stamping Plate VL 010 which has a kind of camo-like design on it.

I started with one (yes, ONE!) coat of Jade Jump and then mixed Sumac Sonic and In A Haze together on the plate's design. This is what transpired. Let me know what you think in the  comments at the bottom!



Doctor Who Nail Art Second Regeneration

I just can't get enough Doctor Who nail art! When I did my first mani, found here, Fixin to Faff told me there were MORE Doctor Who Stamping Plates! Um....I obviously had to buy them. My original first generation Doctor Who nail art used one from My Online Shop (it's not mine, that's the name of the shop :P) She actually sells two with Doctor Who images on it so I bought that and the one made by Vivid Lacquer.

I started with two coats of Emerald & Ash Cherenkov Radiation which I bough with a gift card I won from Polished Pathology. (BTW, second only to Bliss Kiss Pure Nail Oil, I LOVE Emerald & Ash Cuticle Oils. Especially the one called Monkey Farts.) Then, I used Sally Hansen Liquid Gold to stamp the Cyberman and Sally Hansen Sterling Silver to stamp the rest. I hope you like it! :)



Watermarble Rainbow for Fingerfood’s Theme Buffet

Happy Sunday, everyone! This week, the FingerFood Theme Buffet Prompt is Rainbow! I wanted to do a different spin on this, so after some thought, I decided to do a watermarble!
