Stamping on top of Color Street French Riviera

{Affiliate Links}

As you know by now, I’ve been using a ton of Color Street nail wraps. Well, I wanted to see if I could actually do nail art on top of them. I picked Color Street French Riviera because it’s a lovely blue to silver glitter ombre. I thought it would look pretty underneath a black line stamping design.

I chose Cici&Sisi Plate 13 and Konad Black as my stamping supplies. The awesome thing about this technique is it really cuts down on the time it takes to do some nail art because you don’t have to wait for the base color to dry!! This is going to be a huge time saver for me, yet I still get to be creative and do my favorite nail art technique!! I used Seche Vite to seal in the nail art. It works well on the Color Street wraps as a base because they’re actually made of real polish so they don’t act weird under other nail polish stuff.

Anchors Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Affiliate Link}

It’s getting warm so it’s the perfect weather for spending time on and around the water. But don’t get swept away by the currents! This anchor nail art will keep you nice a stable. :)Fun fact: When I was little, my parents always warned me about the “under toe.” (The current that goes the opposite direction and can suck you out to the ocean.) However, I thought they said “under TOAD” and I was petrified of these little toads grabbing my feet and kidnapping me.

Anyway…this mani starts with two coats of Zoya River from the Wanderlust Collection. The stamping polish is Konad White and the design is from the wonderful It Girl IG119

Hello and happy Friday! I have the day off work today so I took my dog, Bandit, on a little walk. I didn’t realize how much I missed walking him since I fell off the wagon so long ago! He’s a great little walking buddy. :) Maybe I’ll take Kirby for a walk later, too!

Today’s mani starts with the red Louboutin Polish. I stamped using Konad Black and the lace design is from an It Girl Plate.

This evening’s mani is one of my favorites that I’ve done in a long time. Let’s just say that I’m pretty pleased with myself for choosing to matte this look.

This mani starts with two coats of Orly Head in the Clouds from the La La Land collection. I used Konad Red to stamp this design from a wonderful plate designed by It Girl Nail Art.kisses-nail-art

Here is a swatch of Orly Head in the Clouds. Many people have reported issues with the La La Land collection. However, I did not experience those problems. Some have said they’re streaky and need 3-4 coats. This is 2 coats in these photos. I found that if I thought of it like a crelly instead of a thick cream that it helped me apply it well. orly-head-in-the-clouds-swatch orly-head-in-the-clouds

You might think that Pretty Serious Chiroptera (press sample) is black, but you’d be wrong. It’s really a dark, dark, dark blue/teal color. It’s also a jelly finish. :) Don’t believe me? Well, then you’ll just have to buy it and try it out for yourself. I used Konad White to stamp this swirly design from CiCi&SiSi Plate 02.

As I’m sure you know by now, I’ve started selling SeneGence cosmetics which is the company that makes the freaking amazing LipSense colors. (They seriously do not budge off your face. Husbands and SO’s everywhere are rejoicing!)

I am now looking to start building my team. You will have one-on-one coaching with me and you will be part of a team where the leader made $20k in October. (WHAT?!) That is, of course, a major stretch goal. To put things in real perspective, I’ve been doing SeneGence sales for a little over a month and have made $2,500 in sales. That’s not too shabby. Considering that I get to keep 50% of that as profit, I think I can say I’m pleased I signed up.

To join SeneGence as a distributor, it’s only $55. (That’s the price of just one starter kit.)

Other than the $55 start up fee, there aren’t any monthly minimums. If you don’t order in a while, you will go inactive, but you can reactivate again. The inactive level is less than $200 in a 6 month period. I know a girl who does Mary Kay and just puts in one order at the beginning of each year to stay active. You could do something similar if you don’t want to go balls-to-the-wall with selling it. (But, honestly, it sells itself. I used to do Mary Kay and hated it. Since LipSense has such a strangely unique quality about it, it is a lot easier to talk to people about.)

If you decide to sign up, follow the link below and it will walk you through becoming a distributor! My sponsor number is #223849 🙂

https://www.senegence.com/senegenceweb/publicweb/DistributorApplicationStep2New_v2.aspxMake sure to only sign up as a distributor (the $55), don’t add any startup kits! Once you have done that let me know and please send me a pic I can use to add you to our amazing FB group!

It is a cold day in the Pacific Northwest! Here is a cold mani to go along with it. :) I used Celestial Unicorn on the Rocks, Konad White, and a design from It Girl Nail Art IG201.

You can see that my ring finger has a sad nail break. I’m going to pretend like this is an ‘accent shape.’ We’ve all had accent nails, so why not an accent shape? This is going to be a new trend; I can feel it. Just don’t forget you heard it here first, folks!

For Cyber Monday today, I’m offering free shipping on all LipSense orders. LipSense starter kits make a wonderful gift or stocking stuffer. If you know anyone who likes cosmetics, get them one of these kits. Most people haven’t heard of LipSense yet so it will be something unique to add to their makeup arsenal.

“Summer” Nail Art

{Purchased by Me}{Affiliate Links}

Haaappy Friday! It’s time for another episode of the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts challenge. This week’s prompt is “summer.” You know what? I freaking hate summer. I hate sunshine and long days. I’m not even being sarcastic. I’m a fall and winter girl. Fall is my jam. You know how most people feel like they’re in a better mood when it’s sunny? That’s how I feel when it’s raining. I like to curl up with a blanket, a cup of coffee, and read. Lately, all I’ve been reading is Outlander.

Lucky for me, I live in the Pacific Northwest. That means it rains here quite a bit! It’s even been raining a whole bunch this week. Hooray! Rain! My favorite!!!

Before you start scrolling, I need to give you a warning…. I cut my nails down. :( I terribly regret it. It seemed like a good idea at the time. As soon as I was done, I realized I’d made a horrible mistake. I will be growing them out again!

This “summer” mani starts with two coats of Sally Hansen Grease Lightening. The designs are from Vivid Lacquer plates and the stamping polish is Konad Black

For the stamping design, I used Konad Black and Cici&Sisi Plate 25.cici&sisi-stamping-plate

The design is technically supposed to be butterfly wings but the design is pretty big so it wouldn’t fit on my nail and look like a butterfly. Instead, it looks like pretty swirls. I still like it, but I wish you could actually tell it’s a butterfly wing. :)butterfly-wing-stamping

I just found this post hanging around in my drafts! I never published it! Oopsies! It’s not very spring-like. That’s probably because I did this art about two months ago! This is the first time I’ve ever “lost” a post. Hopefully this isn’t the new trend for 2016!

This mani starts with two coats of Mango Bunny Polish Fig Newton. Konad Black was the stamping polish at I used a design from It Girl Stamping Plate IG107

Great Nail Art Ideas…Kids TV Nail Art

{Purchased by Me}

Today’s nail art is for this week’s Crumpet’s Nail Tarts challenge. This week’s prompt is “Kids TV”. I immediately thought of Nickelodeon. My sister and I used to watch Nick all the time. We loved Kenan and Kel, AreĀ  You Afraid of the Dark, and Happy Days (On Nick at Night). It was pretty much the only channel we watched!

As we grew up, our tastes changed, obviously. But who doesn’t love Spongebob??

To create my Nickelodeon nail art, I started with two coats of Morgan Taylor All White Now. I used this splay design from Konad plate m21. The stamping polishes are Mundo de Unas Sunflower and Mundo de Unas Neon Green.

Sexy Burlesque Nail Art

I’m totally in the mood for some burlesque nail art so I came up with this look! I started with two coats of Zoya Azalea. Once dry, I taped off the tips and used OPI Who Are You Calling Bossy? to create the black french tips. I let the tips dry a bit (although I did not use topcoat this time). Then, I used Konad Black to stamp a design from It Girl Fashion Plate IG108.
