Candy Corn

Hello All!!! TGIF, been a busy week!
When I received my LeaLac-B plate last week, the "Princess" was with me.  I had been looking at this one image and I thought it looked like candy corn, so I decided to check with her and see if I was crazy or not!! The conversation went like this....
Me: Teggie, what does this look like?
Princess: Candy corn, duh!
Okay, once it was confirmed that I was not crazy , I decided to try it today.
Cast Of Characters.....


Doesn't this look like candy corn??????
I started with a base coat of SC Black on Black and then stamped this image using Konad Special White...

Now for the tedious part...I used a very small dotting tool to fill in the areas with the colors of candy corn to try to make it look like this... I got this image from Wikapedia's free images...

This is how the final product turned out, it looks better IRL, you can't see the areas that I got out of the lines!! Macro is not kind  LOL!!!

For a first attempt, I don't think it turned out too bad,I will do this again during the holiday season.  Hope you liked it....have a blessed day......Jackie

Mermaid

Good Morning All!!  Today in Purple Crumpet Fairy/Crumpet's Nail Tarts the challenge was to do "mermaids".
I went with the tried and true mani , using the image plate Mash -39
The Cast of Characaters for the base...


I used the CG as a matte mani yesterday, and then did sort of a gradient last night....the colors that I chose didn't show up too well  :(   A top coat of WnW Fastdry  Blue wants to be a Millionarire was placed...
It was after this that the gradient was not noticable because the shades were soooo close to the same....

Stamping was done with SH Diamond Strength Deeply Violet.


Well, here is my Mermaid....hope it passes inspection!!
My new  LeaLac plate came yesterday...those images are HUGE...really overpowers my small nails :(
I am going to make them work today...be back later....have a blessed day......Jackie

Today's challenge inPurple Crumpet Fairy Challenge-Summer 2012 is to do a mani using green and orange....neither are a favorite of mine....so this was difficult to say the least!!!

The base of this mani is China Glaze Starboard...interesting shade.....

Then I used some SH Insta-Dri and Konad to stamp with IP BM06....

I guess that is why it is called a "challenge", to get you to think out side the box....well, this is wayyy outside the box!!!

Adventures in Stamping Challenge-Can't Wait For Fall

Hello All....hope everyone is having a good day!  Sorry so late in posting, but my eye was almost swollen shut this morning due to some dental work that I had done on Thursday and I couldn't see very well :(  It is better now, thank goodness!!!
Today's challenge in AIS was to do a mani based on "Can't Wait For Fall".  Fall is my favorite season, but I just couldn't decide what to do, that along with a problem with my vision!!!  This is what I came up with.
Cast Of Characters for the base....a gradient...
 The base gradient...

I really liked this, hated to stamp it :(

I used IP Mash-50 and Konad Black and SH Insta Dri Jumpin' Jade to stamp...


The final product.....


It turned out "okay"....there is always tomorrow!!  Have a blessed evening...I am off to take more pain meds and watch Hunger Games!!!!

Rich and Famous

Hello All.....28 years ago today , I met my little "Queen"!!!   Happy birthday Lauren Ashley  :)
I decided to do a mani in her honor, she loves pink, and I love a new pink that I got....CG  Rich and Famous....it is gorgeous!!!  Yes, I remember that I don't like pink  :)
Cast of Characters.....


.I did 2 coats of the Rich and Famous and then stamped with IP SH21 and SH Insta-Dri Grape Going and Pure Ice Platinum... I was going for a delicate, feminine look.....

Then,IP BM-311 and RA-120 were used for the rest of the stamping.  I know some people have had problems with their RA plates, mine work great!!
So...the finished product....


I just wanted to let the Queen know how much I love her and am glad she is in my life!!!


Thanks for coming by to share this day with me.......I will be posting the winner of the Gift Away tomorrow  :)
Have a blessed evening.......Jackie

Adventures in Stamping Challenge-Red and Black

Good Morning All...so good to get back into a routine again!!!  As you can see I changed the look of the blog a bit....what do you think, is it a keeper or should I redo it????
Today challenge in AIS is to do a mani using Red and Black...two of my favorite colors!!!
The Cast of Characters for this .....
The base was one coat of SH Insta-Dri Rapid Red....it was to orangey , so I sponged the rest of the reds over it......
Image Plate Mash-39 was used for the stamping....I think that it looks like fish scales or a dragon!!
Now, for the final product....My Red Dragon!!!



Hope you like it!  I am working on the "gift away" today....I want to make it easy, you shouldn't have to work  hard for a gift!!!   Hope you a have a blessed day......Jackie

Fishnet and Roses in 3D.....I think!

Good Evening All.....I spent the day doing mani's for when I am in Chicago buying gifts for the giveaway!!!  I also was "lurking" around on blogs and while reading  nickysnailsnstuff, who, by the way is awesome, check her out, there was a link for a FB tutorial on 3 D manicures. I had never heard of this, so I took a look and HAD to try it  :)
My Cast of Characters....
And IP's....


Base coat of Confetti Lonsome Dove and  BM310 using Konad Black...

I wasn't too worried about any bare areas since I was going to be stamping over it.....
Then I stamped BM323 using Konad white. After it dried I painted in the image of the rose with SH Love Rocks, being careful not to go outside of the stamped image.  After that was completely dry I added topcoat in case I "messed" up!!!  Then I stamped over the image again using Konad Black.  The hard part about this was lining it up again.  There were some areas that I didn't quite get it lined up, so I just took a brush and some of the Konad Black and filled it in.  This is how it turned out....pretty cool I think.  I want to try again with a different image combo  :)


There was some smearage, but it looks fine  IRL.  You should watch to tutorial and give it a try!  Thanks for coming by tonight....have a blessed evening!     Jackie
