May the 4th Be with You!


Happy Star Wars Day!!!  I did these nails quickly last night for May the 4th day!


Started with a base of two coats of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Greyfitti, topped with a coat of Penelope Luz Sorcery.

Added a coat of Nine Zero Flakie All The Things (Silver) for some more sparkle.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

MdU Star Wars 3

Stamped using images from Sugar Bubbes 004 (ring and index), SP-024 (pinky), MdU Star Wars 3 (thumb and some words on middle), CNF 002 with Fig Tree Stamps (some words on middle), and Pet'la LE Space (stars on middle) using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief with MdU 11 for shadowing on middle finger.  Finished with a final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Enjoy the last few hours of Star Wars Day and thanks for looking!

Brights!

We've had some wet, gray days lately so I thought it might be a good time to share these bright nails to brighten up your day!


Started with a base of one coat of Color Club Feelin' Groovy.  If you're interested, I did use a base blocker and had no issues with nail staining!


Topped with a coat of KBShimmer He Slimed Me! with a little extra at the tips.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped with image from PY-Y002 using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief.


PY-Y002.  The designs are so cool!  The heart image actually stamps the best; can't wait to use it at Valentines!  Unfortunately, the star image, which I wanted to use for these nails, didn't stamp that well.  Whomp, whomp.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Different lighting; shows the flakies a bit more!


The day after.....or maybe two, can't quite remember.....topped with Essie Matte About You.


Flakies for days!


This is another mani that again, I can't say which one I like better, matte or glossy, but I think matte is a little cooler IMHO!

Thanks for looking!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

We are in for a whole lot of rain over the next week, althought, we shouldn't complain because April showers bring May flowers!  I've been noticing more and more spring flowers and with this rain, hopefully more will soon be blooming!  Like these bright floral nails!  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of OPI polishes; Fearlessly Alice, Sun, Sea and Sun In My Pants and My Boyfriend Scales Walls; either 2 or 3 coats.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Sugar Bubbles SB078


Stamped using SB 078 using Painted Polish Blanc Slate.


Added dots using base polishes on the thumb, as well as added dots in the floral centers.

Love This Shade!


I no sooner placed a Different Dimension order when I put this on my nails, then I had massive regret that I didn't get a backup bottle.  Don't you hate when that happens??!!  I hope it's still in stock the next time I order!  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of Different Dimension Never Forget Where You Came From, with a little extra at the tips.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped with an image from Lina License to be Sexy! 01 using Painted Polish Blanc Slate, no top coat.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.


The day after or so, topped with a coat of Essie Matte About You.  *Swoon*


I love the look of both but think it looks so elegant with the matte top coat.

The Starry Way!

Back in March, a recent Rogue Lacquer order arrived and this mischief batch polish caught my eye and it was the polish I used that same night.  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of  2-3 coats of Rogue Lacquer Mischief Batch 40, no top coat.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Different lighting.


Maniology MXM036



Maniology MXM035



This was one of those times I didn't want to stamp on top of the beautiful base, but went with Maniology MXM035 and MXM036 and they both left a lot of the base showing.

Floral Gradient!

I did this floral gradient a couple days ago; right before I had to cut my nails down due to a little nick in the corner of one of my nails.  Don't you hate when that happens?  What can you do; file down and start growing them again.  They were just starting to grow out a little from last file down; here's what I came up with anyway!


Started out with a sponged gradient of Jelly by Barry M Blood Orange, Satsuma, Mango and then a little Revlon Ultra HD Snap Marigold Maven, no top coat.  I *think* this might be the first time I did a gradient with 4 polishes.  Think, but not quite sure.  I was surprised they all showed on the gradient; usually I have a hard time doing 3 on the nail and my nails aren't that long here either.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped with Beauty Big Bang XL-022 using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief.

Oh La La!


These are some pretty fancy looking nails, even though they were easy peasy to do!  Like most of my stamping, most of the time, lately anyway!  I still try to pair an interesting stamp on a pretty base and hope for the best and do some more difficult or time consuming mani's when I have time.  But I am working long hours lately and while I'm still doing my nails almost every night, I'm going with easier to-do nails.  This is also why I don't have many posts to share; simply not much time to do them.  But I am trying to do some scheduled posts so share all these nails, like now.  Here's what I cam up with!


Started with a base of Music City Beauty Polish Time After Time (PPU July 2019).


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Lina License to be Sexy! 01


Stamped using Lina License to Be Sexy! 01 using Painted Polish Blanc Slate, no top coat.
