Something Different for a Change

It seems that I haven't had anything bright on my nails in a while. So when I was looking for a polish to wear a few days after St. Patrick's Day, I was looking for a bold polish, with a simple design stamping-wise due to time restraints...and no glitter. This is what I came up with.



This is Orly Terracotta, a wonderful bright coral/orange. In my camera, the pix look red so I'm glad on they appear orange/coral in these pix (on my monitor anyways!). Two coats. I'm thinking this will be perfect to wear in the summer!



Stamped using white Konad special polish using Big SdP J. Unfortunately, this was another stamping fail as you can see the image stamping stopped short at the tips and wasn't very good on the ring finger. I went through a string of mani's like this as I've mentioned before.....so be prepared while they continue to show up! I did try to fix it by drawing in some faux lines on the tips....my attempts don't look that great when blown up in macro but were a good blend in real life.



I wore this mani shortly after doing a string of St. Patrick's Day manis so I wanted something that didn't involve glitter. Mani after mani after mani with glitter was taking a toll on my fingers...I wanted a mani I could take off in a breeze and with no foil! But then, I decided even this mani needed a little sparkle, so added a few silver gray dots using a random striper.



Topped with SV and done!

Onto some blogkeeping....I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I've done a bit of work to my blog...it took me foreverrrrrr as I'm just not well versed in doing these kind of things...plus free time not being too plentiful. Nothing too dramatic...over the past couple weeks, I've slowly added a few different pages to my blog if you wish to check them out. This enabled me to take my long wishlist off the main page and tidy up the home page. I also added a widget that put the labels of the posts into one heading...which eliminated the dreaded 276964808 labels I had before. Added a search widget option. Shortened the number of posts visible to hopefully tidy things up a bit on the home page. Lastly, added a couple different ways to follow...a start in case GFC ever decides to cease functioning for blogger. If I can ever figure out Facebook or if I decide to tweet, or have a tumblr, or flicker, these icons may one day appear. I did think about changing my wallpaper but when I was fooling around with different ones, none of them seemed like 'me'...they all looked odd when I was previewing them. So for now, and until I have time to come up with something different, this boring ol' rose coloured one will have to do!

Thanks for looking!

  9. Very nice! I think the repair work you did with the white turned out quite well--I wouldn't have noticed any issues with the stamping if you hadn't said something.
