Manicure refresh: Pure Ice Free Spirit

Greetings fellow earthlings with nail blings!

Manicure refresh!


This is a manicure from a few months ago, when I picked up a bottle of Pure Ice Free Spirit.  I wore 2 coats of Free Spirit alone for 4 days and then repaired the manicure with a sponge gradient using Orly Shockwave, Revlon Heavenly and---it was either Cover Girl Boundless Color City Lights or China Glaze Fairy Dust.  (I love them both and want to paint them all over EVERYTHANG).
Topped with Seche Vite!


I LOVE THAT GREEN.  I have a thing for green.  I really enjoyed wearing this manicure and I always find it so satisfying when I can revive an old mani and make it last a few more days.  

Have you ever refreshed a manicure?  How did you do it?  

I am having a giveaway! Have you checked it out?  Bundle monster 2013 CYO plate sets, Sinful Colors, Kleancolor, Joe Fresh...

Thanks for peeking!  Happy polishing!

Super Bright St.Patty's Day Mani!

Greetings Jellybeans!

I thought I would try something crazy bright for a St Patty's themed mani!  Lately I can't get enough chartreuse and lime.  If you click on these you might get a better hint of the shimmer.  You lose the splatter pattern of the image,  but man...I think it is one of my favorite images from Bundle Monster's 2013 CYO set.  It's so versatile and fun!  I wish I'd thought of it when I was designing my entries!  I'm so glad someone did!

2 coats of Pure Ice Wild Thing
+ (Kleancolor Jazz Olive + BM-416 splatter) 
+ (American Apparel Hunter + BM-406  Celtic hearts) 
+ Seche Vite 

Full Sunlight:

What do you think would look great for St Patty's? 

Thanks for checking in!

Fun with Layered Stamps!


It's been a long time. Is there anybody still out there?
I made pretties!

Layered Bundle Monster stamps! 

2 coats pastel pink franken 
+ (LAC untitled neon pink + BM-416 Splatter)
+(Frankened grey + BM-017 Filigree)
+SH Insta-Dri Top Coat
= 1 Badass Mani

 The pink splatter is much brighter IRL, but I couldn't get my camera to capture it! 

And my new friend Aimee came over today for a play date --the kids played too.  ;p
I got to paint her nails with a pretty design and she said I could show it off here as well!   I am looking forward to many more nail art afternoons with her!

2 coats Billie Cosmetics white creme 
+ (China Glaze Sun Worshipper + BM-416 Splatter) 
+ (Frankened grey + Cheeky XL B Rings)
+SH Insta-Dri Top Coat
= 1 Badass Mani

I love Bundle Monster.  I used a plate from the CYO 2013 set and one of my all time faves from the newly revised original set. Both manicures were over stamped using a frankened charcoal grey.  I think I used a bottle of SH Insta-Dri Whirlwind White with several drops of Claire's Black Hole.  I don't remember what I did to make the pink franken. 

I'M SO EXCITED! Did you hear Bundle Monster is having another CYO nail plate competition? You can submit up to ten images that you would like to see on an image plate and see if any make the cut! 5 of my images were selected for the 2013 set!  I can't wait to try again this year!

Happy Painting!
