#52weeknailchallenge: half moon

So for this prompt I didn't want to do a classic half moon mani. I got to BF chose the base which is two coats of I love Hean 466. The stamp is from BP-L020. And the silver is Nubar silver mist.
I decided to stamp the full design on my thumb and ring finger.
On my middle finger I decided to leave a gap in the middle and stamp a half moon at cuticle and nail tip. I did it by placing french mani guides and using simply peel in the gap.
That's my half moon mani. What do you think?

Thanks for reading guys!

#52weeknailchallenge: inspired by a movie

I need someone to explain this to me... How do I, do all the things I need to do and all the things I want to do while still working a 9 hour day? I am some how expected to, after dealing with people the whole day, clean, cook, spend time with BF and have me time. Oh and I can't be a miserable bitch while doing that. I used to love to read and now I can't even remember the last time I finished a book.

Okay moan session over for now.... Kinda. Anyway, I totally cheated with this prompt... I was thinking of doing another anime movie as I have the whole series of HeHe stamping plates that was inspired by Studio Ghibli, but while I was looking at my polishes, I remembered this awesome one that Michelle gifted to me last year with our Secret Santa.
This is Feed me, Seymour!! Inspired by the Audrey II from Little shop of Horrors. I actually just watched it last week. And the whole time watching it, I thought how much they got this polish spot on.
 I remember as I child I used to say: "No shit Sherlock", like all the time and now I know where it comes from!! Because Audrey II said that to Seymour when he explained his diabolical plan to him.
I can't explain how excited I was when I found this polish in my box... It was one I had been eyeing for a while and I even asked Michelle to get it for me when she ordered Dollish again and there she surprised me.
So what do you think? Of my blatant cheating and this awesome polish?

#52weeknailchallenge: red

I honestly enjoyed this prompt. Red is such a classy colour. And I did have a rough idea of what I wanted to do. I ordered some zip decals off Aliexpress and it came just before I did this prompt. So I cut out the decals and the ones that "opened" I put on my stampers and painted Hean City Fashion 156 around the open part. Once it was dry I peeled it off and fitted it to my nail.
For the other nails, they sporting two coats of 156 and a decal. Or just plain. You can also see my nail peeking through the little gap on my ring finger and thumb.
So this mani is pretty straightforward and easy.
What do you think? I really liked it. I still have some of the gold zips left and also some silver ones... So I'm trying to come up with something to do with the silver ones...

Thanks for reading!

Friday Triad: Inspired by Paulina's Passions

I had slight technical issues this morning so my post is slightly late, but here it is.

It's that time of the month again for our triad post. It was my turn to choose our inspiration, so I chose the first mani in this post done by Paulina. I like how the roses popped on the background.

For my base I mixed some black polish with clear polish, adding black to the clear until it was sheer enough, but not too opaque. The only problem I had was that it bubbled for some reason. The black geometric design is from plate BP 77. The roses from BP 73.
Since my clear stampers doesn't pick up my essence black stampy polish I had to make decals using my miracle mat. I also made stamping decals with the roses, colouring in the leaves with Essence beijos de brazil. The roses is coloured in with Essence santa baby (red), Orly two-hour lunch (dusty pink) and Ulta3 cherry taffeta (bright pink).
Once my base was super dry, I used a nail art pen from BPS to draw the border around my nails. While I was doing this all of those decals were drying, I then added them to my nails, only to have more bubbles form. And by adding top coat it just made more bubbles. So this was one bubbly mess, but it was pretty.
So yes I am moaning a little and it's not super obvious unless you look close, but I could see it every time I looked at my nails. What do you think? Does it do the original any justice? Don't forget to pop over to Michelle and Joyce's and show some love.
