Got the Mean Reds

Base color in OPI's Got the Mean Reds from the Breakfast at Tiffany's Collection.  I used a Bundle Monster plate for the design along with their white and black stamping polish.  My best friend says it looks like a sweater, so we'll go with it. Enjoy! :)

I Lost a Bet (Cubs Nails)


Base colors in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection and Got the Mean Reds from the Breakfast at Tiffany's Collection.  I used a Cheeky plate and a metallic blue stamping polish for the pinstripes, and a Bundle Monster plate for the baseball stitching.  I also used a temporary tattoo for the Cubs logo on the middle finger which I then covered up with some glitter (obvs).

For those of you who know me well, you know I'm a huge Cardinals fan when it comes to baseball.  I made a bet with a good friend this year that resulted in me OBVIOUSLY losing as now I have to do Cubs nails.  Talk about embarrassing!!  If you're a Cubs fan, congratulations on your team winning!  It was definitely a victory for the ages.  Enjoy!

Delicious Donuts

Base color in OPI's Kitty White from the Hello Kitty Collection.  I used a Bundle Monster stamping plate for the design along with their black stamping polish.  Using the decal method, I filled in the stamp with Inside the Isabell-tway from the Washington DC Collection, Sailing and Nailing and Flip Flops and Crop Tops from the Retro Summer Collection, and This Cost Me a Mint and One Chic Chick from the Pastels Collection.

These delicious little donuts had me super inspired... to get donuts later. ;)

Fall Sunflowers

Base color in OPI's Stay off the Lawn! from the Washington DC Collection.  I then used a Bundle Monster stamping plate for the sunflowers.  I made a decal by filling in the sunflowers with Never a Dulles Moment and Inside the Isabell-tway.  I thought this was a very cute design that used all my Washington DC colors.  Enjoy! :)

Election Day 2016

Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I then sponged on a gradient of Fantasy from the Designer Series Collection and Super Chic Lacquer's Realm of Erotica.  Lastly, I used a Bundle Monster plate for the gradient of stars from the outside in.

I hope you all went out and voted today!  No matter who it's for, it counts! :)

Maleficent Nails

Base color in OPI's My Voice is a Little Norse from the Nordic Collection.  I used Purple Perspective and Landscape Artist from the Color Paints Collection over the top along with the spiral water marble image from Bundle Monster's blogger collaboration plates.  On the feature nail, I used acrylic paint to paint Maleficent's head.

I saw this movie in Lubbock, TX with my best friend while visiting her when she was earning her master's (so proud).  We love our Disney movies and agree she's one of the most BA villains around so I had to dress my nails up for Halloween as this.  Hope you enjoy!

Kitty Pumpkin Nails

Base colors in OPI's I'm Getting a Tan-gerine from the Retro Summer Collection and Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used SPF XXX for the creases in the pumpkin and then outlined it in black acrylic paint.  I also used black acrylic paint to make the kitty coming out of the pumpkin.  For the polka dots, I used white Bundle Monster stamping polish and a Cheeky stamping plate.

I saw these nails on Pinterest a few months ago and decided to keep the image around to do myself when it came time for Halloween.  Hope you enjoy this cute little kitty. :)
