Purple Floral


Here I go again, having fun with layering of polishes again!   Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of Morgan Taylor You Glare, I Grow.


Topped with a coat of Polished For Days Supernova.


Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Another look.


Stamped using Painted Polish Thirty and Flirty, MdU 16 and Painted Polish Blanc Slate using Creative Shop 98 with accent of Creative Shop 104.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.


Flakies look so good with a matte top coat, so added a coat of matte tc for a different look.


One of my favourite looks here was the accent nail; it's an image I want to use again for another mani! 

Thanks for looking!

Snow!

Sorry for the absence.  Again.  Life just gets busy and while I'm still doing my nails, I just don't get to posting.

We had quite a bit of snow on Sunday and despite the warm temperatures, it's still hanging around.  So thought I'd share these simple snow nails.  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of Moonshine Mani Joy's Rock Candy, no top coat.  Other than PPU, I haven't really been buying many polishes lately but decided to place an order from Moonshine Mani after seeing a fall-ish polish in stock that I wanted.  I seen this was coming out of the vault as I think it was described in a few days so held off on placing my order until I could include it.  When my ordered arrived in early November, this was the one I wanted to wear immediately and it went on my nails that night!   As gorgeous as it shows in these pix, it is even better IRL.  


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using images from Creative Shop 112 using Painted Polish Blanc Slate.


Topped with a final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.


Hope you are doing safe and thanks for looking!

Winter Is Coming

I woke up yesterday with a dusting of the white stuff on the ground and all around and realized that winter is just around the corner.  We are going to be having some unseasonably warm days today and Friday but it is inevitable, winter is coming.   Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of FingerPaints Blissfully Blue with accents of Cadillacquer Fragile.


Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using images from Moyra 36-Winter Is Coming (how ironic is that?) on the thumb and index; the rest were stamped with images from Lina 4 Seasons-Winter 02.  Using Painted Polish Blanc Slate.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.  


 I had a bit of polish smear again.  I've had this a few times lately and don't understand why as I've been using same topcoat and application method for what seems like years with no issues.  But I think I've narrowed it down to the brush on the tc so have switched it out and hope the issue is solved.  Some mani's were so badly smeared I can't fathom sharing them!  But some like this one are just a smidgen so am sharing them anyway.

Thanks for looking!

Last of the Fall Nails


While I still have a few fall nails to share, winter and Christmas will soon be here and so, it's time to start sharing those nails so I'm saying goodbye to fall nails for now.  I'll have a good start to Fall 2021 with the ones I have left in archives anyway!  


Started with a base of two coats of Dance Legend Military, no top coat.


Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using images from MoYou Fall in Love-09 on all fingers except thumb, which is UC Pretty in Plaid.  Used MdU 59, 66 and 109 and Painted Polish Midnight Mischief.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


I had made a stamper decal from Delaney Automne 01 for another mani but decided to use it here so added to thumb.  then topped with a final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top on it to finish.


I was pretty happy how well I lined these layered images up but was even more impressed how I stamped Ms. Cindy with my non dominant hand.  I even think I did better on the fox and thumb than on the shared one!


 I hope you've enjoyed all my fall mani's this fall.  Thanks for looking!

Lest We Forget

Lest we forget.  

Today is Remembrance Day.  The time we honour those who have fought for our freedoms and those who continue to serve, so we can continue with the freedom we enjoy today.  

I did this quick mani last night and while I was doing my nails, thought about my grandfather who fought in WWII and really, cannot imagine living in the world as I've known it my whole life if not for him and others who sacrificed so much so we have the liberties we have today.  


Started with a base of two coats of Picture Polish Sharky, no top coat.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Stamped using images from CjS H-2 and Messy Mansion MM078XL using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief and FUN red stamping polish.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.


Lest we forget.

More Fall Nails!

While I love the traditional fall nails, I wanted to wear something not so fall nails like, but still share fall nails kinda colours.  I think this fit the bill!  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of Girly Bits Sea You Next Fall.  One provided coverage but I'm used to doing two, so that's what I did.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using What's Up Nails B033 on all nails except ring, which is Maniology M022 using MdU 59, 106 and 107.


Finished with a final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


 Thanks for looking!

Summeresque Nails!

Smmeresque...is that even a word?  Not entirely sure, but I'm going with it!  We are having some crazy summeresque weather right now...well, probably more like springesque weather, and it is warm, sunny and beau-T-ful the last few days!  I'm sure it is short lived but we'll take it while we can.  So I'm pausing fall nails for a little bit to share these uh-um, summeresque nails!  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of Sinful Colors Wonder Mint, no top coat.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Did a sponged gradient using Sinful Colors Wonder Mint, Nubar Sour Apple and L'Oreal Totally Turquoise.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief using Lina Mad for Mandelas 01.


Finished with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


I don't expect this summeresque weather to stay much longer and it was nice to share something other than fall.  Although, I did A LOT of fall mani's; I still have some to share.

Thanks for looking!
