One of My Favourite Gradient Combos!


This is one of my favour gradient combinations and I went to it again not too long ago when I had no inspiration for doing my nails and I must say, they didn't turn out to shabby considering I had nothing in mind when I sat down to do them!  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of Color Club Peace Out Purple.


Did a gradient using Color Club Peace Out Purple, Mrs. Robinson adn Island Vibes.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using image from UberChic UC12-01 using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief.


UberChic 12-01

Colourful Skittles!!!

I seen a watermarble on IG by @ghostly nails using this speckled polish and had to order it!  Unfortunately, Familiar Polish doesn't ship to Canada put thanks to a US nail pal, I was able to get it shipped to me.  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a skittle base of polishes:  Color Club Puccini-licous, OPI Pear-adice Cove, Girly Bits Hip Hop Hurrary!, KBShimmer Chick Me Out and Girly Bits Dreaming Tree.  


Topped with a coat of Familiar Polish Bespeckled.


Added a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped image from Apipila Super Placa H using Painted Polish Blanc Slate.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.


Here's the mani by @ghostlynails ; hopefully that link works or look up an awesome, colourful watermarble with the speckled on top of it!

Not Quite Roses

I had seen on instagram that @girlienails66 ( think it was) had posted about some great polish deal finds at Shoppers Drug Mart so I ventured into my local SDM to see what I could find and while I didn't get as good of a deal as her (she paid $3 for her polishes; mine were $5), I didn't do too badly.  Not that I need anymore polishes...but that's another story!  But I can never resist a good deal lol.  I did a mani later in the evening with them; here's what I came up with!



Did a sponged gradient using Quo by Orly X's and O'x, Quo by Orly Girly Girl and Quo Flashdry RSVP.  Who would have thought that would colours would have produced a decent looking gradient??  I actually really liked how it faded into the gradient; I think this might be a cool base for some Valentine's Day nails!


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


UC 26-01


Stamped using UberChic UC 26-01 using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief.  They don't quite look like roses which would have been more appropriate for this colour but I had done rose nails not too long before that so didn't want to do something so similar shortly after.  But this is a pretty cool design anyway!


Finished with a final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


I had a little polish drag which is so irritating even though I waited a bit to apply topcoat; I didn't have a pre-apply non-smear topcoat with me as I did these nails at my weekend place, but you an be sure I brought a bottle this weekend!

Purple Reigns Supreme!

 I've been doing a lot of simple manis for a while now as I don't have much time to spend to do my nails.  So have been doing quite a bit of layering with some simple, yet effective stamping.  This is another one of these manis and I have to say, it turned out great!  Here's what I came up with!




Started with a base of Girly Bits She's Got Grape Tips (COTM February 2017), no top coat.


Topped with Polished For Days Fire Rainbow (PPU August 2020).



Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.



Stamped using LilyAnna 13 using Painted Polish Blanc Slate, no top coat.



Topped with a final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.
