The challenge this week was one I was really looking forward to, since I don't normally do bright and colorful nails on myself.  I still couldn't commit to more than an accent nail this time (which took me longer than I thought it would).

I used Sally Hansen's Complete Manicure in Black Platinum for my other nails.  The accent nail is SinfulColors Snow Me White with Color Club's Poptastic collection as my rainbow of colors.  The green I wasn't happy with until I mixed some of my SinfulColors Last Chance with it, it was to mint ice-cream looking before.  I even remembered to do an Indigo color, which is just the blue and purple of the Poptastic collection mixed together.  All topped with my Sally Hansen top coat.  Left hand I used my striping brush (and could have done a neater clean-up on the cuticle), and I also attempted to use my dotting tool to do my right hand.  It did not turn out as nice, but still recognizable as a rainbow :)

Until next time

Black and … Week 7

This week is supposed to be black and white, but I could not get my idea to translate to my nails.  I wanted to do pirate skull and crossbones, but could not get it to look like anything more than an 'X' with a dot above it, even with trying to use my skull stamp.  So I ended up doing black and silver bar glitter.

Wet'N'Wild Black Creme, Kleancolor Grand Finale, and Sally Hansen Top Coat.

The bar glitter was a pain to apply.  I'll need more patience with it next time I guess.

Until next time

Gotta Catch'em All!

The choice for this week's nails was an easy one.  I've been wanting to do Pokeball nails for a long time, but haven't been able to get my nails long enough without breaking.  I love Pokemon, and am actually trying to collect all the games.  I'm slowly getting there, but having problems finding the Gold and Crystal versions for Gameboy Color within my budget.

Please excuse the horrible picture taking skills.  Probably should have done another coat of the red, but I was in a rush :)  I used Elmer's Glue as my basecoat, SinfulColors Snow Me White and Go Go, and Wet'N'Wild Black Creme.  No topcoat.  Striping brush for the black stripe, then dotting tool for the black and white button

This is 2 coats Snow Me White.  I love this white because it is so pigmented, but my bottle is needing a little thinner added to it, it has thickened up cause I left the cap off for to long a couple of times :(  I am also not really good at clean up on my right hand yet, but still better than it was lol.

Until next time

Halloween Nails week 5

So late with posting this.  Orange polish is not a color I like on me, so trying to do something creative was difficult.  I finally was inspired while painting pumpkins with my son.  

The nails: 

I started out with a new base, that I got as an accident.  Was meaning to get more top coat while we were at Walmart (where we rarely go anymore), and wasn't paying attention to which one I grabbed.  Oh well, was needing base coat anyway!  Black Creme from Wet'N'Wild, then dotting with SinfulColors Snow Me White. My dotting was not very clean, as Snow is pretty thick, so there are little stringy things everywhere. I then went back with Color Club Wham! Pow! for my orange dots.  Cause it was for Halloween, I also used Wet'N'Wild's Fantasy Makers Glow in the Dark polish.  Ended up smudging the dots a bit, but it wasn't to obvious off-camera. Finished off with top coat.  The glow wasn't to obvious on Halloween, but I was also carrying around a giant glowstick while taking my son and my cousins' kids Trick or Treating.  

I need to find out how much the nail salons around here will charge just for shaping my nails, I just can't get them even when trying to square them off.

I wish I had remembered to take pictures while making the mini Oreo cheesecakes, so that I could make a proper post for them.  They were a big hit with my family, even my mom liked them.  

Until next time,
