#LLOnHoliday: Neon & Palm Trees

Hi Gals!

I hope you all had a great weekend. My oldest son is now done school for the year and I'm looking forward to having him home with his younger brothers and myself. Life is so good when you're on the first days of summer vacation :)

I used the following:
China Glaze Shocking Pink
Finger Paints Paper Mache

Don't forget to search #LLOnHoliday across social media sites to see some more really amazing manicures.

Born Pretty: QA84 plate review


Sorry I just disappeared for a month! So much crap-ola was going on at my house & life that I needed to drop blogging for a little bit. I missed it so hard!

Today I'd like to share with you a cute little stamping plate I got for review from Born Pretty, QA84.

Before I get in to how adorable the 'i <3 u" images are, I want to take a minute and ask:

Have you seen how great the newest image plates from Born Pretty plates are? I'm itching to place another order (and I seriously JUST ordered plate QA82 a few weeks ago... I'm in love!). Go look for yourself, and if you want, here is my 10% off coupon: ECJ61.

I used all China Glaze polish over white for the distressed/faded look, following Chalkboard Nails tutorial (minus the black)

Cute! I love these hearts! 

Images transferred with no problems! 

I love the doddle's on this plate and I am definitely going to try distressed manis again.

Thanks for reading! Happy weekend :)

Neverending Pile Challenge: Textured shades


Today in the Neverending Pile Challenge, we're doing texture shades. I don't own any untried textures, but I took all 3 I own and worked them into a style I never tried: a tape mani with multiple shades, and in our case today, textured shades!

I used the following:
OPI Alcatraz Rocks
OPI My favourite Ornament
OPI Can't Let Go
Striping Tape from Born Pretty (Provided for review)

Bleh! The Liquid Sands dried waaaay to fast, when I went to take off the tape, half the colour blocking went with it. On my index and thumb I painted one shade and removing the tape worked much better. The clean up was just not happening either!

I was just going to scrap this mani, but I decided to show it "cuz I gotta keep it real" and I was too tried to do another lol. I hope you don't mind!

Thank you for reading, have a great night!


Neverending Pile Challenge: Glow In The Dark

Hi Ladies,

My untried polish for The Neverending Pile Challenge the glow in the dark OPI Zom-Body to Love layered over China Glaze Get In Lime. I stamped on top with BM-418 and Cult Nails Nevermore.

And here's the Money Shot:

I only have one GITD polish, and coincidentally it also untried. I admit I'm not a huge fan of glow in the dark shades (right up there with neon's... I just don't do 'em), but it's really neat how it turned out.

Do YOU own Glow In The Dark nail polish? Have you worn it?

Thanks for looking!
