Flower Manicure with AEngland Love is Enough

Another addition to the Heavenly Quotes line by AEngland is Love is Enough. It is a beautiful foil with hints of olive, gold, grey and silver.

I added a flower stamp from PUEEN25 with L.A. Colors French White and really like the lacy effect.


I think it turned out nice and muted looking, gives a sort or lace feel to the look.

What do you think?

Elegant Rose Tips

This is a plain, yet elegant manicure for today.

The base is AEngland Avalon and then I used AEngland Excalibur (New Edition) and then stamped the rose from RA-118 on the tips with Funky Fingers Black Knight.

Iron Man 3 Movie Manicure + Tutorial!!

Today I have a very intricate design, but don't worry, I created a YouTube tutorial to help everyone recreate if too :)

Here are some photos I took while creating the look:


 On the thumb, I have AEngland Holy Grail (Limited Edition), Pointer and Pinky Fingers- Glitter Gal Serpent Black, Middle Finger- AEngland Perceval, Ring Finger- AEngland Excalibur.

I used some Kleancolor large Hexagonal Glitters on the Pointer and Pinky finger:
Kleancolor- Gold Tiara, Chunky Copper and Red Hot.

I did some double-stamping techique and even used some Sharpie Marking Pens to create this look. I am overall very pleased with how it turned out.

I even got to use a new stamping plate! I used the Gals Princess Set GA-7 stamping plate to create the chest plate area for the middle finger:

And, here's the finished look!

 If you want to try your hand at this look, here's the tutorial:

July Neon Flower Manicure

The sun had been shining very well the last few days, then all of a sudden BAM overcast! So, to reminisce about the sun I decided to do a neon manicure and just had to add flowers.

Here's the finished look:

Looks like a Christmas cactus!

Here's the tutorial for how to get the look and what tools and products I used:

Patriotic Manicure + Youtube Tutorial!

Today I have a very first for this blog, a youtube tutorial! I decided it is easier to explain some thing by actually explaining them in a video. Let me know what you think about the video and any suggestions or requests you have for future posts.

Without further adieu, here is my 4th of July patriotic manicure:

Here's the video tutorial:

Here's a photo in the sun to see all the awesome holographic rainbows:

Blue Lightening!

I really like the way this looks. I started with Funky Fingers Zeppelin and then put on Funky Fingers crackle in Blue Scales. That's all! Been a while since I've done such a simple manicure and I love it :)

Red, Blue and Silver Sequins

Another patriotic manicure, this time using glitter polishes to accent the nails.

I started off with Glitter Gal Marine Blue on all nails. What a wonderful holographic color!
Then, I added OPI Gone Gonzo as an accent nail for the thumb and OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It for the ring fingers.

This first photo is a little blurry, but was the only one I had of the whole manicure:

The next 2 help show the manicure a little closer and less blurry:

And, finally an extreme closeup!

I love the way those glitter pieces look all up close and personal :)
