St. Patrick's Day Stamped Jelly Sandwich

 Holy Cow, I'm on time with a holiday post?! Get Daryl Dixon on the phone, I think this is a sign of the apocalypse! And if it's not, he can still come help me with a few things. ;) *Ahem*

Anyhow, this beautiful jelly sandwich is 2 layers of Zoya Frida, then I stamped with Wet N' Wild French White Tip using some leaves off of Pueen plate 55 from their Stamping Buffet set, and then another layer of Frida. It turned out so amazing!

Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Butter London Nail Foundation. Top coat is Seche Vite.

Is It Spring Yet?

Please excuse the lack of cleanup here, this was just before adding the half moons.

Here in Oregon, the weather can't quite decide what the hell it's doing. One day it's freezing, the next we're seriously thinking about turning the air conditioners on. Then the next day it's back to freezing. Welcome to Oregon - if you don't like the weather wait 10 minutes. Hehehe. I was seriously in need of some Springtime one recent gray day, so I pulled out Perversion of a Butterfly by Vivid Lacquer and went to town.

Perversion is pretty sheer, so first I laid down a coat of China Glaze Sweet Hook which is a wonderful lavender cream. Then two coats of Perversion of a Butterfly, a sheer lavender base with purple and bronze round glitters, purple and silver shimmer, and fabulous purple butterflies. The I added half moons (wonky as they may be) in O.P.I.'s Can't Let Go. I think the bronze glitter in the VL polish is just the right touch to set off all the purple, don't you?

Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Butter London Nail Foundation. Top coat is Seche Vite.

Playing with color and stamps.

 This is a grouping I've had set aside for awhile now, but something was always more pressing so I'm excited to finally show it off. The glitter accent is Marshmallow and Lilypad from 365 Days of Color's How I Met Your Mother collection. It's green glitter with smaller pink glitters in a milky white base. I paired it off with Butter London's Snog and Hunter by Zoya. Then, being as addicted to frogs as I am, the logical next step was to stamp with vl012 from Vivid Lacquer. There are actually lotus flowers on the green nails, if you look just right, done with a filled in stamp instead of just the outline. I wanted the glitter to be the star on the accent nail, so I used the outline there. I love these. Anything that lets me put frogs on my nails makes me super happy.

Palette Cleanser: Vivid Lacquer Theoretically Nude



 This absolutely gorgeous polish is Theoretically Nude by Vivid Lacquer.  It's a perfect nude that doesn't lean orange or overly brown or yellow or whatever, it's just a wonderful sand color at first glance. However, it also has this evenly distributed dark brown or black matte micro glitter in it that keeps it from being dull. THEN there's a subtle pink shimmer at certain angles that just makes the whole thing pop. Anni from VL actually just put some more bottles of this up, I'd jump all over that if I were you.

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