Nails Today: Black and White Stamping

Todays nails are pretty simple. I didn’t want to spend a ton of time on them, and I really wanted to get some more practice at stamping. Both of the images are from the m60 plate. I bought my image plates and stamper and scraper set from the Born Pretty Store. So far I have had no real issues with the plates or stamper; however, the scraper isn’t very useful, so I’ve been using an old gift card instead. The gift card is great for scraping! It is much better than the scraper that came with my set lol. Anyway this is how it turned out:


Polish used:

Black – Candies: “Back to Black”

White – Sinful Colors: “Snow Me White”


Stamping Over Julep Rose

I attempted (did I succeed?) to stamp some polka dots using the m79 plate over my Julep Rose manicure from yesterday. The dots kept smudging :/ so this is how it turned out:

Julep Dots Left Hand Julep Dots Right Hand

The white is Sinful Colors – “Snow Me White.” My right hand turned out much better than the left, (usually it’s the opposite lol) but I just started stamping, I’m sure I will get better in no time! ­čÖé Well, that’s all for today. I’ve got to go study for my ASL final. Wish me luck!

Loving Julep Rose!!! <3

I recently won┬áLeviosaa’s giveaway on subblime for a free Julep nail polish of my choice. I, of course, chose Rose. Since I wasn’t loving the “green” manicure I did yesterday, I decided to try out Rose today, and boy am I in love! I can’t even begin to describe how pretty it is! It is┬ádefinitely┬áred, but it has a┬ásubtle┬áhint of pink in it as well.

Julep Rose

This is after two coats. It was still a little see through after one coat. I will most likely be stamping over it later, but for right now, I am just enjoying this beautiful candy like color. ­čÖé

New “Follow Me Here” Buttons

follow me here button I created these cute little image links today, and I am so proud of them (Look at the sidebar!). After discovering that there is no way to add an AddThis widget to a blog, I was very depressed, but I quickly realized I could just make my own with some simple html code. The fun part was making the little images. They turned out so cute!! If anyone wants any help putting these on their blog, I would be glad to help. The sites I used are the only ones I made images for, but if you would like me to make matching images for other sites so you can put them on your website or blog, just let me know. All of the images I used are in my photobucket library. They were taken from the apple iphone app store images for each app, and I just rounded the corners on them. Anyways, thats all for right now. Talk to you later!
