Thanksgiving Nails: Apple pie?

 Thanksgiving nails! I was going for apple pie with the golden colored filling and brown lattice crust. I've seen lots of pumpkin pie and even cherry pie. Do you think I was successful with the apple look?

I painted my nails with two coats of Butter London's The Old Bill as the crust color, then stamped using Vivid Lacquer plate VL009 and Finger Paints Catwalk Queen. My doctor's medical assistant just loved these, and I got to introduce her to the concept of stamping!

Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Bonder. Top coat is Seche Vite.

Breast Cancer Rememberance Mani


 I know Breast Cancer Awareness month is traditionally October, but my Grandmother had her mastectomy on November 23, 2001 so this is the time of year I celebrate. Twelve years later, she's still going strong!

The main base color is Vivid Lacquer's Theoretical Girlfriend, which is a very very pale pink with white and pink glitters all through it. The accent nail is Flutter by Sinful Colors, a medium bubblegum pinks with a subtle shimmer. Both stamps are from Vivid Lacquer's VL001 plate and I used KleanColor Metallic Fuschia for those.

Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Bonder. Top coat is Seche Vite.

Stamped Purple Gradient

 I love this SO. MUCH. This is a gradient of (top down) China Glaze Sweet Hook, O.P.I. Planks A Lot, and Butter London Marrow stamped with the large Celtic knot image from Messy Mansion's MM04 in Essie Nothing Else Metals to keep the purple theme going. I'm not sure how I did it, but the lines looked like they were floating above the color and it just came out great.

What do you guys think? What kind of things do you want to see in the giveaway I'm planning? Let's get some interaction going on here!

Night Skies: Sally Hansen Gone Grey, Emily de Molly Falling Skies plus stamps and dotting.

 This mani has a little of everything. The base color is Sally Hansen Gone Grey, then I added Falling Skies by Australian indie Emily de Molly. Falling Skies is full of blue, teal and purple glitters, plus holo silver stars and crescent moons. It is gorgeous! Then on the accent nail I used Essie No Place Like Chrome to stamp a crescent moon from Vivid Lacquer's VL013 plate and some stars from Bundle Monster plate BM14 and dotted on some clouds using Color Club Blue Heaven. Pfhew!

Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Bonder. Top coat is Seche Vite.

Latest Halloween Nails Ever.

Yeah, I know it's November 8th. Whatever bug I have/had came back and hit me hard again starting the 30th and with the Fibromyalgia, it takes me forever to get over anything.

So, this was my Halloween look this year. It's Be-leaf It Or Not by Finger Paints, the face is hand painted in KleanColor Black and White and the awesome stitches were stamped on using Vivid Lacquer plate VL003. Then I used a coat of NYC Matte Me Crazy to make it more like monster skin. I love it muchly.
