Hi guys! Today I have some more stamping. Since getting my Messy Mansion soft-med stamping head, it's just become so much easier that I want to stamp all the manis! This is a double technique look that's actually quite easy. I used China Glaze Hey Doll as my base plus a whole bunch of other colors that I thinned and then dried brushed on with a small flat rectangular brush. Click on "read more" for more pics and to see how I did it.

Today is Simple Swatch Saturday with a bit of a nail polish fail thrown in. This was supposed to be my 1st attempt at a pond mani...yeah...nope. Can you see the flowers I stamped in between the layers of the red? Not really. Sigh. Anyway, the color is gorgeous so it still works as a great swatch! This is ORLY Sweet Tart, a red jelly that's so squishy and shiny and candy-like.

This week the Pahlish Lovers group on Facebook is hosting a Pahlish Week to show our support and love for maker Shannon cause she's been going through some stuff. We're going to be using the hashtag #teampahlish to show off our Pahlish manis. I'm wearing La Dernière Reine from the 2014 Royal Reverie fall collection with a stamped accent nail.

Hi guys, today I have a very short and sweet post. I have several family members who aren't feeling well for different reasons and this is one super tired momma. (I've been up since 3:30 am or so with my toddler.)
It's Simple Swatch Saturday and I have New York Color In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry polish in Spring Street. This is a gorgeous red orange creme, just one careful coat for the pictures, it's that opaque. Just a beautiful color and great for stamping. No staining and easy clean up, perfect creme formula. Not only is this a great color but it's only about $2. I got mine at my local Walmart.
I hope everyone else is having a fun (and more restful) weekend!

I have some pink nail art for you today. I did these about a month ago but hadn't gotten around to posting them. I had Pretty and Polished's Contents Under Texture sitting in my untried box for a while so I really wanted to do something cute with it. I paired it with China Glaze's Astro-hot and actually sandwiched it between layers of ORLY's Uncharted.

Today I have the second installment of my Colors of My Island series. This one is a bit different, it's nail art based on a picture taken by my best friend, Arelis (@originaltemplate), of lightning at night over San Juan.

Today's regularly schedule post has been postponed (what? You think I just post whenever, nah...I have a schedule, with Google calendar reminders and everything...although I don't tend to stick to it...heh.) Anyways, recently I found myself in the middle of a small controversy...or a large one if you where also searching for the Uptown like I was. My #1 polish lemming, the one thing I couldn't find and really wanted, is Color Club's The Uptown, from 2013's fall collection. It was a sheer purple jelly with color-shifting flakes. It's been sold out online for months and I can't find Color Club locally (I found some random bottles at CVS once, and got all excited, dragged my kids through the entire beauty section until I finally asked an employee if they had more in the hopes that The Uptown would be there but sadly, no).
