The Girl with the Butterfly Print Nails

DSC_0265

Here’s a look inspired by a beautiful dark blue dress I saw the other day. This Sephora by OPI polish (Opening Night) is a perfect match with it, and I think the butterflies add a little magic to the look. I used Konad stamping plate m21, and Konad silver stamping polish.

The butterflies are really not that visable, it’s only when the light hits them, or if someone is really looking closely that they appear.

I haven’t stamped in months, so some of the butterflies are a little askew. But this was fun, so I may have to go back to my stamps again soon. 🙂

Henna Style Stamping

1

How much do I love stamping manicures? A lot! For this manicure I wanted the stamping polish to really pop. I think Barefoot in Barcelona matched up really well with my red Konad stamping polish. It reminds me of henna art. I used Bundle Monster stamping plate BM 306.

It’s a little strange not having to do a specific manicure every day now that the pre-spring challenge contest is over! Congratulations to the winners Short and Sweet in Texas and Up Close and Polished. Both girls created beautiful manicures throughout the contest. 🙂

Day 9 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest Rainbow

1 2 3

I got the idea for this mani from a google image search. Here’s the original image. I really like how it turned out! When I was painting my nails there were so many bottles on the table lol!  And I gotta give some credit to my fiance Greg who suggested I stamp over the bright colors (sometimes he likes to butt in and give advice when I’m doing my nails lol!) 4Colors used, Sally Hansen Lightening, (yellow) The Face Shop, Face It  (blue, peach, orange and light purple), Prorance (green), OPI Color So Hot It Berns, OPI Red Lights Ahead . . . Where? OPI Strawberry Margarita, OPI Fly, OPI Lourve Me, Lourve Me Not. BM plate 313 and White Konad stamping polish.

Day 2 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest Pink

1

For day two the theme is pink and I decided to keep it simple and use my fav pink ever which is OPI’s Strawberry Margarita. I stamped gold Konad stamping polish over it. I used BM-315. I really love the paisley print. It was really difficult to capture the color because it is so light and shimmery. It’s a very subtle look, you really need the light to catch the stamping polish. But I really love it!2

Day 1 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest (PSCC1) Yellow

1It’s my first time entering in a challenge and I’m a little nervous! I hope my manis don’t look too crappy beside all the others! Today’s challenge was yellow. I used Ciate Big Yellow Taxi, Bundle Monster Plate 311 (BM-311). I also used black Konad stamping polish and gold beads that I picked up in Japan last year and never got around to using.

Thanks to Polish Alcoholic and Mommy Loves Nail Polish for setting this up!

In-law Nails!

1 2

Hey everyone, In the morning I’m flying to the states to meet my in-laws for the first time! I’ll be spending Christmas in Florida! I’m so excited! I really want to make  a good impression so I took a lot of care with my nails, I hope you like the results, I hope my future mother in law likes them too! Wish me luck guys! The stamping plate is Bundle Monster BW-319. I used Konad white stamping polish and Sally Hanson’s Xtreme Wear Blue It. 3 PicMonkey Collage

I was very excited when my bundle monster package arrived last week. But, because work has been so cray all week I didn’t have much time to fool around with the plates. I’ll have more time in January so watch out for some stamping manicures then! And hopefully I’ll have picked up some nice nail art supplies in the states! 🙂

Bridal Manicure

1A

Next year on August first I am getting married! (yay!) 🙂 So, I’ve been thinking about what kind of manicure I should have for my wedding day. I’m still not sure what I want so I’m just experimenting with lots of different looks and styles. I’m pretty sure I will eventually decide on something really simple and elegant. When I googled bridal manicures I really didn’t like what I saw. I definitely don’t want a Kardashian inspired look!

This look is really simple. I used a Konad stamping plate m56. I wanted a nice delicate french manicure look. I like the lace effect, it’s pretty.

So, there will be many more bridal manicures over the next few months as I play around with different looks.  I’d appreciate any advice from nail art bloggers! What manicure did you rock on your wedding day? 1B 1C
