January Wheel Spin

I am so glad I set up the wheel of nail art for ideas to get me going.  I have so many polishes that have never been worn that this is a great way to use them.  Anyway, when I spun the wheels this time, I got Teal as my color choice and Gradient as my design.

What I used:
*KB Shimmer - Meet Me At The Barre
*KB Shimmer - A Touch Of Glass
*KB Shimmer - Teal It To My Heart

I'm sorry to say that the pictures don't really do the color justice.  It was really pretty on though!

Thanks for stopping by!

Little Christmas

I will be honest.  I had no idea what Little Christmas was until a friend of mine said something to me about it when I mentioned I didn't know what to title this blog post.  When I looked into it, it was a fit (color-wise)!

I didn't have much in mind for a theme for this week's look.  I took an idea from another friend about putting ideas into a wheel that you can spin (virtually, of course) to help you along.  So, I created a wheel of colors and one for nail art styles.  Upon spinning, I ended up with "green" and "striping tape".  Here is what I put together:

What I used:
*KB Shimmer Keep Palm and Carry On
*KB Shimmer Flake Expectations
*Striping tape

Can I ask how people keep striping tape on their nails?  I have managed to amass quite the horde of striping tape over the years but don't use it often.  I find it annoyingly complicated to apply nicely and it just doesn't stay on my nails!  I have 2 coats of top coat over this and it is still peeling.  It's pretty though and a sacrifice I am willing to make for the look. (wink, wink)

Just look at those flakies though!  I mean the color shift is gorgeous!

Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to 2019

It's 2019 and I really want to get back to this blog.  New year, new goals.  My format will be super simple going forward.  If there is anything I don't explain enough, just reach out and I will answer what I can.

For my New Year's nails, I went with a pretty lilac base and some stars for celebration. For the glitter, I sponged it on with concentrations around the cuticle on one side only.  It didn't look how I wanted it to so I did a light coat over the whole nail before adhering the stars.

Here is what I used for this mani:

* Seche Color: Flirt
*Wet 'n Wild: Sparkle & Grey
*Star glitter and embellishments I have had forever

It takes a lot of top coat to get those stars to not snag on everything!  They are firmly in place and should present quite the challenge to remove when I am tired of them.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to post again soon!
