Lime Cooler With Glitter

I have another It's So Easy Stripe Rite to show you.  It's a gorgeous multicolored glitter in a gold base.  I paired it with Jessica Lime Cooler, just like the name says it's a lime green.  Nice combo to wear for the summer.

There are no names written on the Stripe Rites, but I think the website describes it as a gold holographic.  I swiped several coats at a diagonal until the glitter was opaque on the nail.

Gradient Puzzle Nailart Design

Good Morning,

I'm so excited I received my New! Bundle Monster Stamping set.   I'm loving them, so far I only tried one image and I am very pleased.  The set contains 25 plates #BM-301 thru #BM-325.  I think this set has a good variety of images that should satisfy everyone's taste.

After yesterdays gradient manicure I wanted to layer it with something and since my new plates came in the mail...hey why not right? :)  I purchased the XL Stamper from ebay it also comes along with 2 plastic scrapers a large one and a small one for $7.50.  Some of the ladies on Facebook were having problems with it but it works fine for me.  If you are having problems look at this video very helpful.  I am in love with this squishy stamper y'all!   I just might like it better then the Magno Nail XL Stamper.

Teal Tuesdays...Challenge Gradient

Good Morning,

Today is Teal Tuesdays the challenge: Gradient

I've shown you several gradient manicures so this one should have been a breeze to do.  My challenge was coming up with another combo to go with the color teal.  I decided on orange, Morocco colors.

Moroccan Doorway- Patterson Maker

By sponging on both colors the two combining together is somewhat of a burgundy color.  I think that is the fun part doing gradients.

Blue Monday, Soft Blue and Brown Combo

Good Blue Monday,

I wore this mani several weeks ago after I showed you Duri Midnight Blues . I got my inspiration from the card/envelope Marisa sent me along with Midnight Blues.  The envelope is a very light soft blue and brown with intricate detailing.  I thought it was so pretty I just had to mimic the design and colors on my nails. 

Blue and Brown Nailart

I used Essie Borrowed & Blue as my base and stamped with OPI You Don't Know Jacques! Used image plate Mash-43

    As you see here there are different sizes to match the size of your nails.  There are 11 modes in the package.  The instructions are on the back. Make sure your polish is dried thoroughly before applying the modes.  Now, decide which size you need peel off from the backing,  it's sticky so remove some of the stickiness by placing the sticker on your finger to remove some of it.  Place the sticker on the in the position you want press firmly to make sure the mode is flat down.  I had to press down several times because my nails are curved.  If your nails aren't curved you won't that problem.  Now, take your polish and polish right over the design covering well.  Remove the mode immediately and carefully.  Viola! you have your nailart design.
