Mani of the Week!

Hey team!

It feels good to start sharing my nail creations with you guys again! Yay! I had a lot of fun with this week’s mani and I’m super excited to share it 🙂 This was the first time I tried stamping my nails! It was harder than I expected!

For this mani, I used two coats of Julep‘s Something Blue (yeah, it’s supposed to be a wedding color…oh well!) as a base, topped with one coat of their March birthstone polish, Aretha! Next, I used Konad’s special white polish and their m65 plate for the design!

That glitter! I die

Aretha is a little disappointing as a birthstone polish. I was born in March, and my birthstone is aquamarine. This topcoat is a very pretty holographic flakie polish, but it’s not actually blue once you put it on (even though it looks blue in the bottle). It looks like Julep made a new aquamarine polish this year, but it’s a little meh imo. Too little too late.

Also, guys, stamping is hard. I was only able to get three nails on both hands to look decent (all of the fingers except my index finger in the first pic!). Do you want to see my other hand? Are you sure? Ok, here you go…

*Wilhelm scream*

-_- Not my best work. I learned a lot about stamping though! I figured out how much polish to put on the design, how much pressure to use when scraping and transferring, how to roll the stamp when you transfer, how much your nails need to dry before you stamp….I will be a pro for my next stamping adventure, trust me. 😉

Until next time!

Mani of the Week

Hey team!

Are you ready for the mani of the week? This one is a super fun, lime green jelly filled with super bright matte glitter! It’s part of Dollish Polish‘s 80’s inspired collection, and it’s called Gag Me With A Spoon!

It matched my beer!

It matched my beer!

How fun is that! It’s a little sheer (it IS a jelly…), this is 3-4 coats and you can still see my nail line. I should have used white or green undies, I bet that would really help it pop, too!

I am still in love with my macro lens. 😀 And look how long my nails are getting!!

Until next time,
