Flowers and Swirls!


It's been a hot minute since I did a post, so sorry about that.  I've been super busy and my nails aren't the best which means I haven't been doing them, which makes me want to share nails less.  On the mani's that I've done lately, as the nail issue has been ongoing for a while, I just see flaws, which makes me want to share nails less.  Plus I seem so out of the nail world; I seen all these new methods, new styles, etc. that I'm not doing, which makes me want to share nails less.  I paint and stamp my nails what I like to wear, which may not be that popular, but I don't have anyone that I have to please other than me and hopefully someone out there may get some inspiration from them!   Which is why there are a lot of floral mani's and blue nails lol.  So here's another floral mani, that happens to be blue, with swirls, that I did last year when my nails weren't so much of a mess.  

 
Started with a base of Essie License to Thrill, with accent nail of Pretty Beautiful Unlimited Candy Floss (PPU Feb 2018) both two coats, no top coat.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


What's Up Nails B044



Stamped using What's Up Nails B044 using MdU 91 on the darker nails, with Lina 4 Seasons-Spring 02 using Painted Polish Blanc Slate on the accent nails.


Added floral centers using Essie License to Thrill.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Decided this was a little safe and because I like busy nails, added a few dots using Painted Polish Blanc Slate and MdU 91.


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

Taking It Easy!

I love so much about this mani; it is a good representation of what I'm wearing on my nails nowadays.  I just don't have time like I did before to search for images, maybe make a few stamper decals and add dots or little stamped accent touches here and there.  Don't get me wrong; sometimes I still do them like that, but they are getting less and less.  Now, I'm more into layering with a couple of polishes for some interest and then some simple, yet interesting, stamping.  Like here.  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of Essie Hyperlinked, no top coat.


Topped with Glam Polish Crescent City, no top coat.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped with an image from Infinity Nails 157 using MoYou London stamping polish Beach House.


Finished with a final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


 I hope to get time again to do some more interesting manis but in the meanwhile, I'm OK with these!  I did these a month ago and shortly thereafter, noticed my one nail wasn't growing that well so cut it back and I'm back with nude nails for the unforeseen future; it's a good thing I have a lot of mani's in draft still to share!  I'm not too happy about it as it was just growing out in this mani but it must be done.

Thanks for looking!

Giant Daisies!

I see spring flowers blooming all around now that the warmer weather is here so thought it would be a good time to share a few floral manis over the next little while, including this one.  Here's what I came up with!
