A while back we did a copycat theme week. Today is take two.
I was given Chelsea’s Nailed Blog to find my inspiration this week. I chose to do her Saran Wrap Mani.
Of course I had to put my own twist on it and try it as a gradient. After doing my base color of CND Asphalt, I painted half of my nail with OPI Do You Lilac It and the other half with Sinful Colors Innocent. Then went to town with my Saran Wrap. It made for a cool effect. What do you think of this Saran wrap gradient?

Happy March! Spring is almost here my friends! March is a busy month. We have daylight savings, St. Patrick’s Day, the first day of spring and this year, Easter as well. Lots of different manicure inspiration options. 🙂
I kept is super simple today. I haven’t done shamrocks before. I used Sally Hansen White On and green acrylic paint. I hope March is a lucky month for you!
More spring colors. I hate that all the Easter candy is out in stores already. Too much temptation!This manicure basically represents what my daughter’s room looks like. She’s got an accent wall that is painted just like this. Her colors are a bit softer, but this was the best I could do. Obviously I freehanded this. I don’t mind the organic lines. They’re better than spending hours waiting for polish to dry so I can tape my nails off to do the next color.
I used Jordana Chiffon and OPI Do You Lilac It and brown and green acrylics. I topped it off with Chill Zone top coat. I think I was a little too hasty in my application, because I had a ton of bubbles. Operator error.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! This song came on the radio while I was driving around town the other day. And this mani was born. I’ve been laughing about it for days! It’s a little crazy, I know. Aliens have hearts too ya know. They’re probably celebrating Valentine’s Day today just like we are. 😉
My hubby got a good laugh out of it. My daughter asked what they were, then said they were mad. Ha ha!
My base polish for this design was OPI DS Magic, my aliens are Sinful Colors Innocent and the pink heart is Milani Pink Hottie. Everything else was done with acrylics. I topped it off with Chill Zone top coat.
I think this is super cute and I’m giving myself a pat on the back for it. I think it’s safe to say this mani is one of a kind. I hope you’re all spending the day with people you love (romantically or otherwise). Happy Valentine’s Day!
