Picture Polish Wanderlust

I wore this manicure a couple days ago; I'm so into the brights right now because of the sunny, hot weather we've been having and the brights match my wardrobe so well lol!  It's the summer we never had!  The easy, peasy stamping was perfect for the limited amount of time I had to do my nails....I still like to change them often but just don't have 1.5+ hours every night do do them.....and love that you can do something like this in around 20 minutes (it would be even less if I didn't stop to take pictures)!!  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of picture Polish Wanderlust.  When I have no time to do my nails, it seems I always reach for one of these Picture Polish scattered holo's that I love so much!


Added a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using an image from Infinity Nails 84 using FunkyFingers Gesso.

Pahlish Little Bread and Butterflies

Everyone's been sharing their fall and Halloween mani's recently....we've been having some of the very best weather of this summer this last couple of weeks and I'm still into the summer brights and colours here!  At this rate, I'm not sure when I'll be sharing fall mani's!  Anyway, one of my recent mani's is this highlighter yellow base in Pahlish Little Bread and Butterflies!  I can't believe this hasn't sold out at Pahlish yet!  I get it; I initially passed on adding this to my cart on past order but my good nail friend, Julie, wasn't so obtuse and had picked it up and was loving it!  She told me how much she loved it so I decided to pull the trigger with my last order and have to say, I'm loving it too!   Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of Pahlish Little Bread and Butterflies.  The formula was stellar; no issues at all, not even on the first coat as yellows can sometimes be!  My love of flakies hasn't stopped and love the use of them here as haven't seen flakies in a yellow base yet!


Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


For stamping, decided to use a polish that (I hoped) matched the flakies and wanted an image that didn't cover too much of the base.  Went with an image from St. Happy by Gogo Only using Mdu 73, which was a pretty good match.



Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

Digit-al Dozen Does 5th Birthday; Day 4!

This was a simple mani I did for day 4 of all things 5 and birthday!  This is a mani using 5 different stamped images!  I don't normally wear hearts outside of Valentine's, but these were the images calling to me which I got down to stamping....particularly the thing and ring finger images!  Here's what I came up with!



Started with two coats of Fair Maiden Polish Seaflower, no top coat, that I had picked up at Indie Expo Canada 2017 in June!


There is this gorgeous pink or magenta shimmer or shift in this polish, which was the reason why I went with a magenta stamping polish but it was camera shy for the most part!


Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using images from Infinty Nails 17 (pinky), Mezerdoo B4 (middle), Mezerdoo B8 (ring) and Mezerdoo 36 (thumb and index) using Hit the Bottle Magenta At Your Own Risk.

Digit-al Dozen Does 5th Birthday; Day 3

You may have seen a blog post or it mentioned on IG in August, that I turned the big 5-0; while I shared a few pix about the event, I didn't have time to share the nails that I was sporting for the occasion but I'm going to do so now as '50' has a '5' in it, right?  (And as seems the norm lately with Digit-al Dozen posts, I'm late, so sorry!). Here's what I came up with!


I knew I wanted to go with sparkly, fun, and colourful nails for the day and glitter is always fun!  The newly arrived Girly Bits Sequins & Satin Pants collex fit the bill; just painted heavy lines with them; sometimes, I overlapped, other times, I never. There was no rhyme or reason for this.  


Added a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on top.


Stamped using an image from Creative Shop 38 using Funky Fingers Dark Knight.


Did Ms. Cindy slightly different but still used same collection of polishes and same stamping plate.

Digit-al Dozen Does 5th Birthday; Day 2

This is my day 2 mani for the challenge 5th Birthday for Digit-al Dozen; I went with 5 again as the inspiration and came up with Jackson 5!


Started with a stamper smoosh base using primary colours as I wanted bright and bold...but it turned out to look like a dogs breakfast if the truth be told!


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using a funky groovy image from Dashica Nails 017 using MdU 1.

Added images from FUN 2 FAB UR NAILS by Jaks (pinky), Delaney Michael Jackson (ring and middle) and MJ XLI (thumb and index) using MdU 2.

 After cleaning up some over stamping that I missed on the thumb, added a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

Digit-al Dozen Does 5th Birthday; Day 1!

It's the Digit-al Dozen's 5th Birthday!!  Our theme this month is all about 5's ....or birthday's...however, it is interpreted by all the members!  

For my first mani, I did "It's 5 o'clock Somewhere!"  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a sponged gradient using Nicole by OPI Hit The Lights, Nars Ethno Run Left and Nicole by OPI Please Red-cycle.


Applied KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped images from Chez Marin 004 (thumb and pinky), Delaney Marin 004 (boat on ring and sun on middle), Lina Coffee, Tea or Gonuts! (words on middle), Nailsways ABC 123 (number on middle), and Chez Marin 003 (footprints on middle, seagulls on ring and index and palm trees on index), using Mdu 2.  I had also applied a coat of CND Stickey to help application as the Chez plates are shallow and dry very fast.
