Frilly Music Notes Nail Art

Today’s mani starts with a base of CDB Lacquer Sunsweet Berries, which I originally received as a press sample. Once dry, I stamped a design from this Cici&Sisi Set using Sally Hansen Fuchsia Flare. I kinda love how the purple subdued the pink. I was drawn to the music notes nail art idea and I liked how this one wasn’t just notes. It has fun, frilly swirls also!

Latte Swirls Nail Art

This mani reminds me of latte swirls! I started with two coats of CDB Lacquers Mother Earth which I originally received a press sample. Then, I used this Cici&Sisi set and Konad White to stamp the design on top. There’s nothing better than drinking a hot cup of coffee while reading nail blogs first thing in the morning! I try to get up early enough to do that for at least a few minutes every day! This mani is also part of the Crumpet’s 52-week pick and mix challenge. This week’s prompt was books and brown. You already saw my books mani earlier this week! :)





Great. Now I really want a latte! LOL! I might just have to stop by Starbucks on my way to work this morning!! I tried their pumpkin spice latte and it was so sweet it hurt my tummy. So I’ll stick with my usual skinny vanilla latte instead!

Winter Butterfly Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Purchased By Me}

I don’t care if it’s almost winter, I want some Butterfly Nail Art! LOL!! I hesitated to post this because of the season, but I decided that I don’t care! I like it too much not to share. I started with CDB Lacquers Warrior Spirit which I originally received as a press sample. Then, I used a design from this Cici&Sisi plate set and Sally Hansen Petal Pusher to stamp the butterflies on top. Some of the wings are cut off so they actually look more like leaves, but I really like how it looks anyway.

Victorian Nail Art

This mani starts with a base of CDB Lacquer Sacred Sun which I originally received as a press sample. The design is from this Cici&Sisi Set and I used Konad Black to stamp. The design and color combo kinda reminds me of a Victorian design. I’m not sure why…and I’m not sure that’s an accurate interpretation, but that’s what it reminds me of!

CDB Lacquer Colors of the Wind Collection

{Press Sample}

Today, I have the CDB Lacquer Colors of the Wind Collection for you! CDB Lacquers sent me 7 mini bottles from the collection to swatch for you! You can find these on CDB Lacquer’s Store Envy site where regular size bottles are $8 and petite/mini is $6. Cheyenne, the owner of CDB Lacquers, has this to say about the collection:

The inspiration for this collection and the names is my heritage, Native American culture as well as nature itself. I did this collection for my mother because anything native American related is a passion we share.

You can find CDB on Facebook and Instagram.

CDB Lacquer Pure Soul

Pure Soul reminds me of mint  chocolate chip ice cream! Yum yum!! It also reminds me of the turquoise stone frequently used in Native American jewelry. This is three coats. Pure Soul is a light teal (almost Tiffany Blue) with tiny gold flakies.





CDB Lacquer Tranquility

Tranquility is the color of a skinny vanilla latte. It is a light sand with a lovely, subtle holo. This is three thin coats.




CDB Lacquer Sacred Sun

Sacred Sun is a major winner. This one is blowing my mind. It’s a light pink with a serious golden duo-chrome. Er mer gerd. I  can’t get enough of this one. It’s so gorgeous and will be amazing as a base for some nail art! (Yes, this is foreshadowing…Hint…hint….hint) This is two coats.





CDB Lacquer Sunsweet Berries

Sunsweet Berries is a deep purple holo. This is another favorite of mine from the collection. (Hmm….my favorites are always pinks and purples…I think I have a problem…) This was two coats. This one was a touch on the thick side, but nothing that wasn’t workable. You’ll just want to use smooth, gentle strokes. (…Keep it PG, people.)





CDB Lacquer Mother Earth

 Mother Earth is a milk chocolate color that reminds me of a latte…but a latte with more espresso in it than Tranquility. :P This is three thin coats.




CDB Lacquer Hidden Oak

Hidden Oak is a gorgeous evergreen color. This is a color that will be fantastic for holiday manicures! This is three thin  coats.




CDB Lacquer Warrior Spirit

Warrior Spirit is a rich red with holographic shimmers. This is three coats.



What do you think of the CDB Lacquers Colors of the Wind Collection?

Thanks again to CDB Lacquers for sending me these to review!
