Stampy Sunday 6/17 edition!

This is a little late today, but better late than never, right?!?!

Todays theme was stamp over a glitter.

So I thought this would work a little better, it's not a fail, but it's not exactly what I pictured.

I thought Untamed Luxury was more sheer, but it's pretty opaque. I wanted a dirtyish ocean look...which is why you see little bits of brown under the untamed luxury.

So this is CC Untamed Luxury over Orly Buried Alive, stamped first with konad special black, filled in then restamped with special white using MASH 37

The poor little aqua one looks a little stretched. :( it's ok, you can't really tell, especially when I twwwwwiiiiiiiiiirrrrrl it like this... :)

Thank you for reading!!!

Monkey See/Monkey Do 6/11 edition!

So this is a little different. My Monkey See/Monkey Do is a take on something someone did in a facebook group, Not a blog post that I pinned.
One of my friends Amanda Nicole did this mani
I wanted to copy it, it looked so awesome...make that ^picture^ big, it truly is beautiful!

Here is my take on it: I used Color Club Space Case topped with Fairy Dust, then Wet n Wild RIP Black Magic again topped with Fairy Dust and then Finger Paints Motley. It's not as cool as Amandas but it worked. :)

 This next picture is intentionally blurry, I love the sparkle!!!

The theme is Hot Hot Hot. I took that to mean neon, which means more cell phone pics. :) First off pics of the gradiant...I love gradiants, and I am starting to LOVE neons!!! This is Billie Electric Coral and Electric Purple.

 Then I stamped it with KleanColors Metallic Aqua and DRK-B.

Oooooh!!! A review?!? Yes, please!

I was lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time when I came across Once Upon a Polish on facebook. As you can probably guess, all of her polishes are fairy tale themed. Late one night while I was messing about on facebook, she asked for bloggers to review her collection! I emailed her as quick as I could!!! She asked me which I would like to try. I told her to suprise me, I'm not picky! and BOY did she!

First off, lookit how stinkin' cute!

 This is what I recieved!

 Chimney Sweep, Ariel, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
 Ariel is a clear polish with teeny tiny almost pigment sized red, green and what looks like turquoise glitter. This WAS smooth by it's self but of course, i have to put seche over everything.
Pictured above, it is 3 coats by itself, 1 coat over Sooki, 1 coat over Au Champagne, and 1 coat over black. I think my favorite of the bunch is over Au Champagne.
 Chimney Sweep is very cool. Kinda like the coveted Connect The Dots. White and Black bar, and medium silver hexagon. It was almost smooth on it's own, of course 1 thin coat of seche smoothed it riiiiiiiiiiiight out. Pictured above over all China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise, Frostbite, Cha Cha Cha, and Spontaneous. it was awesome over Turned Up Turquoise. it was my favorite.
Aaaaaaah, last but certainly not least, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This one was my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE of the 3. Again, it was relatively smooth on it's own, but one coat of Seche and it was glass. This is jam PACKED full of glitter. I mean SO full that the above picture is a THIN coat! It is medium white hex and small silver holo hex and lots and LOTS of tiny black hex and tiny black irregular shaped...I can see this being used A LOT! If she were to add irregular white like the black, it would be overload for me, and too it's a good thing she didn't. ;)

Out of the ones she sent me, Snow White was my favorite. like all chunky glitters, I had to load the brush, but that was to be expected. For being a chunky glitter, it settled out wonderfully, and dried rather quickly even without the Seche.

ok, all the good stuff!
You can find Kimberlys shop Once Upon A Polish, here. Her fullsized polishes range from $8.50 to the Spectraflair ones being $10 She also sells jewelry done with her polishes. Check her out!!!

Stampy Sunday 6/3 edition!

WOW, it is June already! this year is flying faster than any others. Lets get down to the mani!!!

First off, I'm going to tell you, the pics are cellphone pics because neons do not photograph well using a regular camera and I am not good at messing with all the setting to get it right, and I don't like to edit pictures to change the color. now with THAT in mind...

The theme this week was a plate ending in 9. This is a sponged gradient of neons using the same technique I used here (Make up Sponge tutorial) using Color Club Get your Lem-on, & The Lime Starts Here, and Billie Electric Coral, Electric Fuschia, Electric Purple, & Blue.

 Now that first picture was taken under a "natural light" bulb, and it is not color accurate. But I LOVE how it dried semi matte. it was not full dull, just semi with a little bit of texture. I wore it like that for a full day before I stamped it.
 Here it is stamped with the new Mash 49 and ChG Frostbite.
