Quilted Rose Stamping

I recently bought a set of Pueen stamping plates and have been pretty excited to try them out. This was the first manicure I did with them.

For this manicure I started with three coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff. Using Zoya Dana, I stamped the quilted rose image from Pueen plate 22. I probably wouldn't use Dana to stamp with again, the image isn't as crisp as I would prefer, but otherwise this manicure turned out really well.

OPI Pink of Hearts 2013

I love the breast cancer awareness sets that OPI puts out every year. This year's set included a nail art component in the form of rhinestones and pink ribbon decals.

In this manicure I used three coats of OPI Pink-ing of You, and two coats of OPI More than a Glimmer on my ring finger. I added one of the OPI pink ribbon decals on top of More than a Glimmer and to my other nails I added a rhinestone near my cuticles.

Basic Stamping Design

A basic stamping manicure today.

Three coats of OPI What's With the Cattitude.  Then I stamped an image from DRK-A using Sally Hansen Silver Sweep.  On my accent nail I used two coats of Cirque Debris.

China Glaze Trendsetter

Do you ever have one of those colors you just don't know how to wear?  I've had Trendsetter since 2011 but it has stayed in my untrieds this whole time.  Finally, I came across this cardigan and my whole word changed.  Suddenly I had something that would match Trendsetter!  I put together an outfit, did up my nails, and wore it all together.  

I'm wearing on my nails two coats on China Glaze Trendsetter.  It's sort of an ugly mustard yellow-green with a slight hint of shimmer.

Essie Chinchilly

I love this color for fall. A lovely, grey purple.  I love this polish so much, it's one that I'm giving away as part of the Midwestern Beauty Bloggers Fall Giveaway (a giveaway you should enter if you haven't already).

On my tips is three coats of Essie Chinchilly.  The formula is very nice, applies in a mostly even manner, and wears beautifully.  I went four days with no tip wear.

Put a Bird on it

When I see birds on things, I can't help but think of this episode of Portlandia.

Using this episode as inspiration, that's exactly what I did with this manicure: put a bird on it, spruce it up, and make it pretty.

For this manicure I used two coats of Essie Naughty Nautical stamped with MoYou plate Kitty Collection II using Konad Special polish in Black. Naughty Nautical has a good formula, very unlike most of the Essies I have in my collection so I was very pleased with it.
