Toronto Maple Leafs Playoffs Nail Art

Toronto Maple Leafs Nail Art with Essie Starry Starry Night - BP-L024 and MdU Bones - swatch natural shade

Since the Toronto Maple Leafs made the playoffs, I thought I would do nails to match.  He has been bugging me to do these for a while.  After the Blue Jays lost after I posted post season nails for them, you think he would have quit but anyway… Base colour: Essie Starry Starry Night Stamping plate: Born Pretty BP-L024 Stamping polish: Mundo de Unas Bones Base & top coat: CND Creative Play MdU Bones is my new favourite “white” stamping[Read more]

Ciate Risky Business Swatch & Review

Ciate Risky Business - 3 Coats Sponged On over peel off base coat - naturall light showing purple shift macro

A weird angle, I know but you needed to see the beautiful purple shift in Ciate Risky Business.  It has a colour shifting base of blue to purple with blue gloitter “sequins”.  Risky Business looks a lot more opaque in the bottle but is really sheer so better as a topper or effect coat.  To get full opacity without a base colour, I needed to sponge it on three times and it still had some bald areas.

Galaxy Nail Art #31DC2016

31DC2016 Day 19 - Galaxy Nails Swatch Sunlight - Polishes Used

After a few prompts that i was not overly excited about, we have galaxy nails today.  I love galaxy nails, they are a pain to do but always look great and are not overly complicated despite the final look.  I feel that these look a lot like the last galaxy nails I posted but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it right?  Apart from the base, the polishes use were different but it is the same blue and purple over[Read more]

Advanced Nail Stamping Flowers #31DC2016

31DC2016 Day 13 Flowers - Born Pretty - Quo Runway Ready - Swatch of Floral Stamping using Essie Highest Bidder

I will admit, I am a little in love with this look and didn’t want to take it off to work on day 15 of the challenge.  Especially since Jazz freaked out at a shadow and ripped my hand apart so it hurts to do any nail art.  Day 14 of the challenge is flowers and I went with (fairly simple) advanced stamping using one of my favourite Born Pretty stamping plates and a neutral base with a holo topper.[Read more]

Rainbow Nails – Day 9 #31DC2016

Rainbow Butterfly Nailart #31DC2016

Day 9 of the 31 day nail challenge is rainbow nails.  As pretty as they are, I hated this challenge, who wants to use 7+ polishes in a look.  But I guess that is why it is a challenge.  I decided on a rainbow gradient with butterflies from one of the newer square Born Pretty stamping plates. As much as I thought I had a lot of blue and green polishes, turns out I have a lot of ones that[Read more]
