Go Red for Women

1 Feb

Did you know that today is National Wear Red Day?  I believe the first and maybe every Friday in February the American Heart Association asks you to wear red to show your support for Women’s Heart Health.   I’m doing that by way of a manicure.GoRedForWomen (3) WLcopyI didn’t want to just paint my nails red.  You know me, I’ve got to do something to spice it up.  I can’t be seen simply wearing a solid color of nail polish. 😉  An animal print is the quickest way to spice things up in my opinion.

I’ve done lots of leopard, but haven’t dabbled in zebra much, so that’s what I settled on.  I need to practice a bit more.  While I’m in love with the overall design, I think my zebra could use a little work.  I used NYX Girls White, Sinful Colors GoGo Girl and China Glaze Liquid Leather as well as black, red and white acrylics.  I topped this off with HK Girl top coat.GoRedForWomen (10) WLcopyAre you sporting red today?  There’s still time to go change your shirt or your polish in support of women’s heart health.  Heart disease is a serious subject that we should all educate ourselves about.  Check out the American Heart Association for more information.

Twinsie Tuesday: Special Edition

31 Jan

Wait, isn’t today Thursday?  Yes.  Yes it is.  Welcome to a special edition of Twinsie Tuesday.  Today marks the one year anniversary of the first ever TT post.  It snuck up on me.  To commemorate, we’re all revisiting our first TT post.  I’ve been here from the beginning, so my first post was an international polish.

Rose_mint_red (3) WLcopyI don’t have many international polishes, but I originally chose Barry M Mint Green. Of course I had to do something a little different with it this time around. Red wasn’t the most obvious choice to pair with mint green, but I think it’s pretty.

Blown Glass

30 Jan

This was a crazy easy mani and I absolutely love the effect!BlownGlass (15) WLcopy

It totally looks like blown glass to me. Don’t you think?

BlownGlass (20) WLcopyI used a striping brush and splotched each polish around.  You could probably do it with the bottle brushes, but you might have a bit of clean up.  With a small brush I was able to shape the polish around my cuticles and didn’t need to do any clean up.  This was done with all jellies.  I need more jellies so I can do this again.  I might try this over white next time to bring the color out more.  I used NYX Ink, China Glaze Phat Santa, Milani Rad Purple and Ulta The Jungle Look.  I want a yellow and orange jelly.  And maybe a brown.  Are there black jellies?

Polka Dot Waves

16 Jan

There was no rhyme or reason to this dotticure.  I didn’t have much of a plan.
polkadotwave (4) WLcopyIt looks very summery, so maybe it was me dreaming of warmer days to come.

polkadotwave (15) WLcopyI used NYX Girls White as my base, Wet ‘n Wild Everybody Loves Redmond, Color Club Edie and Zoya Robyn.

Twinsie Tuesday: Red

15 Jan

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Today’s theme is red.  It put me in the mood for Valentine’s manis, although I didn’t do one.  I pulled out a few red polishes and started playing.

red_swirl (2) WLcopyDoes this resemble koi fish to anyone else?  Maybe it’s just me.  Wet ‘n Wild Everybody Loves Redmond is a very orangey red, so that probably contributes to the coy-ness of it.

red_swirl (5) WLcopyThe white base I used is NYX Girls White and the reds are China Glaze Velvet Bow, Sinful Colors GoGo Girl, OPI DS Indulgence, and as I mentioned above Wet ‘n Wild Everybody Loves Redmond.
