Konad Multi Stamp and Sunday's Manicure

Happy Sunday,

After Friday's manicure today I decided to do some stamping.  Before I show you my nails  I purchased the new Konad Multi Stamp.  Since the scraper is attached to the stamper it works alot faster for me.  Just scrap and stamp. What I like about it, I have my plate on top of a paper towel after scraping on the design  I slide the scraper on the paper towel, this cleans off the polish so no drips. Then all I do is stamp. This elevates me from cleaning off the scraper with a cotton ball or Qtip. What I don't like about it is the metal scraper wish it were plastic because the metal scrapes up the plates.  Other then that I'm glad I got this :D

 The stamper is double sided the other end is green and smaller. The holder is nice to display it on top of your nail station.
Here are the directions 

I stamped my (right hand) non dominant hand first, but got better stamping results with my dominant hand (left hand).  Everytime I stamp my left hand comes out so much better.  (Wonder why?)

My right hand 

I used Revlon LilyChrome with plate Red Angel RA107

Left hand

 I like how you can see the glitter peeking through the silver chrome and how you can see like a shadow of the glitter through the petals of the design.

Hope you are having a great Sunday!

Weekend Nails with Spoiled Cougar Attack

Yesterday while walking around in CVS went to check to see if they had gotten in the new line by Wet n Wild *Spoiled*.  Most of this collection put me in the mind of Sinful Colors.  I did pick up a few of the multi-colored glitters.  (Geesh, I think I have enough glitters already)  I picked up Cougar Attack and thought the name sounded familiar, come to find out Wet n Wild had this one in their On The Prowl Collection.  I never found this collection in my area so you know I was happy to find this little gem.

Cougar Attack-packed full of copper glitter suspended in a brown jelly base.  The formula was thick so I added a few drops of thinner to make my application easy.  The brush was a whopper but it helped cover the polish well on my nails.  2 coats.

Did you grab a few from this brand?  Which ones?

Maybe A Dupe To Butter London Disco Biscuit

Good Morning,

It's time for I wear pink on Wednesday!  Butter London Collection  Spring 2012 looking at Disco Biscuit   was thinking about purchasing it because of it being a very bright pink with purpley/bluey shimmer in the mix.  The name is cute too.  It did look familiar to me so, I started roaming thru my Alex and grabbed Funky Fingers *Manic Flamingo*.   I haven't seen Disco Biscuit just on various blogs.  To my surprise money saved.  I purchased Manic Flamingo a few years ago while visiting relatives up north.  It still might be available at your local Five Below.

My camera is not picking up the blue shimmer to well here 

There's the blue shimmer

These pictures are with 2 coats no topcoat.  Formula wise easy to apply kinda jelly like.  I hear Disco Biscuit is really sheer not so with Manic Flamingo.

These last 2 pictures are with 3 coats and 1 layer of topcoat which looks better because it's a little dull without it.

If you are lemming Disco Biscuit but want to save some $$$ get Manic Flamingo.  I hope you find it!

P.S.  I'm keeping Manic Flamingo in my purse so when I visit Ulta I can do a comparison.  I just want to make sure. Lol! :P

New Trend Water Colour Nails

Good Morning,

I'm excited to show you this new trend: Water Colour Nails.  I initially saw it on BeautyGeeks website.  I'm trying to get into doing more nail art so I thought I should give this look a try.  Not to bad if I can say so myself.   Just simply add dots of color and blot it with acetone using a makeup brush.

These are the polishes I used

I bought Whirlwind White at CVS during the sale.  Glad I did it's a nice opaque white. Used 2 coats.

Just think of all the color combo possibilities for this look.   What are your thoughts?

Looks like Caramel

Good Morning,

I have an unusual color on today.  Most of you will think it's the most ugly color in the world.  I'm fond of all colors and I particular like these types of colors.  Looks like caramel to me.  Makes me think of a retro candy I use to eat while growing up.  Squirrel Nut Zippers...Yumo!  Nfu Oh JS39 is a jelly.  Only complaint I have once on the nail at 3 coats it's not bottle color.  I also slathered on a coat of Lynnderella Change.

Here bottle of Nfu Oh JS39  is a little darker 

See not bottle color

So what ya think about caramel colors?  Nay or Yay?
