St.Louis Cardinals nails

Hello :) I'm from St.Louis, and I'm a baseball fan. So i'm thrilled that they won the World Series this year. So I decided to a mani dedicated to that.. This is the their 11th title in franchise history BTW... Inspired by the St.Louis logo, MVP David Freese, and of course my favorite player Albert Pujols. I sorta messed up the logo because I ran out of room. The "t" should have been placed inside the "S". Other than that , I'm very pleased with how they turned out. I only used polish for the base of red and white. I used Wet n Wild French  Creme, and Maybelline Speedy Hot Tamale. Everything else is acrylic paint. It's so forgiving.

Day 11 - Polka Dot Nails


I love, love, love this color. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Barracuda. I had been looking for the perfect light blue. I need 2 back up bottles lol. Totally one of my "go too" polishes. The polish I used for the dots is NYC- Skin Tight Denim Creme.  It's also perfect for stamping. One problem i always have with dotting is the dragging.  The dots sometimes will leave a small stray line behind and it drives me up the wall. Any tips?

Day 10 - Gradient Nails

I started off with Sinful Colors - Pink Forever for the base. I then sponged on Sinful Colors Pink. What an an original name. After i applied the second color it still looked to similar so I then added Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Fuchsia Power. I really liked it. Pink is my favorite color after all.

Then I had to go and ruin it with my horrid stamping. I used Bundle Monster Plate 221. I first stamped the abstract looking design first on my index, middle , and ring finger. After my lopsided stamping I figured why not try this Chinese/Japanese?? stamp that's really cute. So I did. That didn't make it any better lol. I enjoyed using my plates though, haven't used them in forever.

Day 9 - Rainbow Nails

Good Morning!

I really enjoyed doing this mani. I first painted the sponge, then lightly applied to my nails. Although the colors smooshed together. I still really dig these nails. Kinda hippie-ish! I like that they all look different.

I over did the pinky.

Day 8 - Metallic Nails


Unnamed gold polish from an icing nail polish set. I don't have many metallic polishes. Never used this one before and now I see why. Looks FUGLY on me.

I won , I won

Good Morning!

I couldn't think of any other clever title for today's post. But I did win CND Sapphire Sparkle from Queen Of the Nail. I was so exited b/c i never win. Well until last week! My pictures don't do this beauty justice. Its so sparkly and pretty. It has purple and blue tones throughout. Cant wait to try it over different colors.

1 coat  of  CND Sapphire sparkle over Color Club Pucci-Licious.

Excuse my hang nail. Macro pictures pick up everything geesh! lol

Breast Cancer Awareness

Good Morning!

The theme for this week's PAA, Monday theme is Breast Cancer Awareness.  I love pink polish so this week was the week for me. I haven't known/lost any family or friends to breast cancer. But cancer in general has taken away several of my family members. I will definitely create a colon cancer mani soon in honor of my great gran that passed away from this disease last year. I love this mani, BTW!

Lines were created using a "Fan brush"! Got the idea from LOVE4NAILS youtube. 

I like both versions .

Day 7 - Black & White Nails

Hello :)

I am determined to finish this challenge. At this point this challenge is 31 mani's instead of 31 days. Lol.
I will probably have to sit down and do 3 or 4 at a time b/c of school, I don't have time to paint my nails every day. Anywho....

My Inspiration for this mani was domino's!

I like em for most part, just wish the dots were more consistent in size. I also think it would be really adorable with longer nails!
