Smitten Sunny Side Up and Apipila P.2

Another archived mani; yes, I'm still doing my nails about several times a week but have soooo many mani's in archives because I do my nails at a great rate that I can do posts so need to get some of these up!  I lost about 2500 pictures not too long ago by fingers moving faster than my brain and then accidentally deleted them; I tried a recovery program but still wasn't able to recover them.  So I'm hoping if I get some older mani's posted, as well as delete some ones that are so fugly no one is ever going to want to see them anyway, that I won't have to worry so much about accidental deletions and what not.  So these nails that I'm sharing are almost two years old now; I love how they turned out and not really sure why I didn't share them sooner but glad they weren't deleted in the brain freeze purge!


Started with a base of two coats of Smitten (now Dreamland) Sunny Side Up, no top coat


I remember how exciting getting Smitten/Dreamland Sunny Side Up was as there weren't many yellow holos on the market at the time.  This pix, you can see the holo a little bit better!


Stamped using FUN black stamping polish using an image from Apipila P.2.  The stamping doesn't look that crisp here; I'm not sure if there was a problem with the plate or it could have been not a good press onto the nail and a little movement which I know sometimes happens which causes the shadowing. 


Added a few dots for interest.


Top coated with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.


Hope you're having a wonderful week; thanks for looking!

Top Shelf Lacquer Purple Rita

Today's mani has been in archives for almost a year so I think it's time that it is sees the light of day!  I look at these nails and think they hardly look like mine; I haven't had them this long is a very long time! Here's what I came up with!



Started out with two coats of Top Shelf Lacquer Purple Rita, shown with no top coat.



Added a coat of Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC before stamping.



Stamped using an image from Infinity 158 using Funky Fingers Gesso.



Added a couple white nail studs to accent for interest then top coated with Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC (first pix).

Digit-al Dozen REDOES Fashion; Day 5

Here's my Day 5 Digit-al Dozen REDOES fashion mani which was inspired by one of my shirts,  then with stamping on it!


For the base, did a dry brush mani over two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls with Orly Indie TX, OPI Keeping Suzi At Bay and Jessica King Tut's Gem.

Digit-al Dozen REDOES Fashion; Day 4

I've been at a total loss for this weeks fashion nails.  I'm not terribly into fashion (wear what I want, don't care if it's fashionable, sticking with mainly classics and neutrals), so haven't found anything much that interests me when googling or searching on Pinterest.  Let's just say, its been taking me longer to find something to use as inspiration than it takes to do my nails!  Anyway, I found something last night when googling purple fashion and came up with these for Day 4 of Digit-al Dozen REDOES fashion! 


Here is my fashion inspiration; photo credit Favim.  Doesn't look like the stamping polish matched that well but it is closer IRL. 


Started with a base of two coats of Nvr Enuff Unicorn Flower (Flower!  How appropriate!), shown with no top coat.


Added a coat of Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC.


Stamped using images from Delaney Rectangles A001 (middle) and BP L-024 (rest) using MdU 54 (Iris).
