Good Morning All!!  I hope that everyone's week is going well, so far mine as been quite eventful...especially at work, alot of changes going on!
This is a dual mani.  I am also in The Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge and todays mani was to be your favorite lilac or peach.  I chose lilac since they are one of my favorite flowers.  I just love this shade of polish by Confetti....Belle Of The Ball.

Extremely easy application, nice and cremey.
But , of course with my "addiction" to stamping, I just had to do it!!
I used Cheeky IP 16, all the "strings".  I opted to use black and white for the stamping.

Thank you for stopping in, hope you have a wonderful day!!!

Adventures in Stamping, "3Colors"

Good Morning All!! Sorry that I have been missing for a couple of days :(   Been really busy with family, my father turns 90 today....we all took him out yesterday, but that is another post!!!
For the FB group I belong to, Adventures in Stamping , todays challenge is to do a mani using only 3 colors, and that includes the stamping!!!
I did my usual clear base coat and then 2 coats of WnW  Wild Shine in Bijou Blue.  IP was Cheeky 16.  I double stamped the image using black and white.

This is how it turned out......

Thanks for coming by today...enjoy your Sunday   :)

Fantastic Friday in Blue

Good Morning All!!!  It's Friday   :)  I have a mani today that my basecoat is a franken that I made with eye shadow.  Did anyone else buy the WnW 2 pack special that contained the Fast Dry topcoat?   Well, I got several and the top coat takes forever to dry  :(   So , rather than not use it , I decided to make a franken with some loose eyeshadow that I got at Sallys for like a buck.

 BM  image plate # 205 was used for the stamping with Sally Hansen Insta Dri Pronto Purple.
I think it turned out pretty good....hope you like it.  Thanks for coming by, have a Fantastic Friday!!

Gunmetal and Gold using Cheeky Image Plates

Good Morning All!!  I received my 2012 Cheeky Image Plates yesterday....yeah   :)
I thought that I would do a quick mani to see how they worked since alot of bloggers have reported missing plates, duplicates and warped plates.  So far I have found none of these issues with my set.

I used a base coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Gunmetal and chose the Cheeky IP CH7.  Sally Hansen Color Quick Pen in gold was used for the stamping.

These plates have some really cute images, I can't wait to use the boots on this one!!!

And this is how the mani turned out, it "kinda" matches my scrub top for today    LOL

  The plates stamped very easily.  You can purchase them  here.  Give them a look.   :)
Thanks for coming by, today is my friday, see everyone tomorrow!!!

Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge, Pink Polka Dots

Good Morning All!!  Today is pink....again :(   I feel like I am back at Valentines Day with this mani !!!
This is for the Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge.  Today was to be pink polka dots....when I saw that I almost didn't do it, but I am starting to like "some" pinks!!
I chose  CG Designer Satin as my base.  For the "dots" , I used my dotting instrument with CG  Go Go Pink and NYC #242.  I could not see myself wearing pink dots all over my nails, so I did somewhat of a french tip.

The Cast of Characters!!

The end result.....

Thank you for coming by today, have a great "hump"day!!

52 Week Challenge, Corset Mani Week 8

Good Morning All, I hope that everyone had a great weekend....mine was "okay".   I did my week 8 mani...a corset.  I was dragging my feet ...I did not want to do this one..I am NOT good at free hand art  :(
So I made myself do it, I started with a base coat of a polish that my daughter, "The Queen", gave me for Christmas...China Glaze Swing Baby, a gold  that was so easy to apply that it scared me!!!
 Then I took WnW Night Prowl and put a strip down the middle, and added my laces and whatnot with Art Deco  in white and gold.  I know I would not wear this out in public...just don't like it  :(

The Cast of Characters!

 This was taken outside on the deck, it was such a beautiful day!!

Well, there it is, thank you all for stopping in...have a great Monday!!!
