31 Day Challenge 2012! Day Three: Yellow Nails

Sunday Yo!! 

  I hope you are all having a nice weekend! Today Rie, Sam and I will be doing the third prompt in the 31 Day Challenge, which is Yellow nails. So the first few days of the challenge are color-based (Red Nails, Orange, Yellow Etc). Much like Sammy I decided to take it day by day as later on in the challenge the prompts become more challenging (no pun intended :). For today I did a simple stamped design that I had been wanting to try for a while. 
 I should probably re-name this to the Twee & Honey Challenge lolol!!! I have SO many Twees to go trhough! It's awesome.. Anywho.. For this Yellow look I started with a base of Twee & Honey Pineapple Express, which is a beautiful Banana yellow creamy-jelly. For the stamping I used XL plate DRK-A and Konad Black Special polish. I still have not mastered stamping with this huge plate yet and I also don't have the correct stamper, so needless to say, I'm not 100% happy with how these turned out( I know I'm always too hard on myself). I really love how the Index finger turned out. The saving grace for this look was Twee & Honey's Golden Fairy Farts (lololol) which gave the whole look a pretty Golden Twinkle. Once I had added the sparkles I was way happier with the final look. The golden twinkles look like Honey on my little honeycombs :D. 

Thanks for stopping by today!! Now don't forget to stop by my challenge partners Rie and Sam's to see their Yellow looks for day Three!

Zoya Zuza Summery Nail Art

Good Morning People!

  Today I have some very Summery bikini- inspired nails. I've actually not had a chance to sit down and swatch Zoya's AMAZING new summer collections but when I saw Zuza I just knew I had to wear her first. Also, I can't stop saying Zuza.... It's fun to say... I was just too into this color and I could not put off wearing it any longer. The swatch will come later. For today please enjoy this Bikini inspired nail art.
 For this look I started with Two effortless coats of Zuza. This color is perfect in every way. For the stamping I used Zoya Ibiza and stamping plate DRK-A. I dotted with the centers of the flowers with Zoya Lara. To give it an additional pop of contrasting color I added some details in Zoya Arizona. I topped the whole thing off with some Seche Vite.
So... I pretty much love this to bits and I dread the day when I have to take it off. But I abslutely look forward to swatching these, most epic, collections.

Pink Wednesday!! Wet 'n' Wild Dreamy Poppy goes Tween

Good Morning loves and happy Pink Wednesday!

  Been a while huh?! I had been really wanting to do a Pink Wednesday for some time and now that I am finally adjusted to my work schedule, got myself organized and my shiz together I was able to come up with a Tweeny design using stamping plate DRK-A and a cute Wet 'n' Wild shade. I love cute and playful manis like this one. While the look is very "young"... I could care less. Someday I let my inner 13- year old shine through my nails.
 For this look I started with Two effortless coats of Dreamy Poppy. I stamped using several designs from Brazilian plate DRK-A in Konad SP. This did not turn out as clean and neat as I envisioned because I am still working out the kinks on stamping with my Brazilian plate. All the images stamp a little differently and I am finding out as I go how they all work, I LOVE the star stamp so much! The girly Skully design actually stamped a lot better on my right hand when I applied less pressure. I still like this fun and edgy look.

Muffin Monday!! Barielle Blackened Bleu

Good Morning and happy Muffin Monday!

  It's been so long since Muffin has made an appearance around here, I figured it was time for her to come back. She picked me an AMAZING shade by Barielle. I just got this pretty not too long ago along with Two other shades by Barielle that I will be showing you soon.

Muffin Monday!! Viridian Vinyl

Good Morning loves and happy Muffin Monday!!

  Today I limited Muffin's picks to Orly colors. I feel like I don't give Orly enough love. I also feel like out of all the big brand name brands Orly "Wow's" me the least. I don't know what it is but their colors just feel tired to me. It seems like once in every collection they have a really amazing color and the rest are just ok, to me. I really like their "specialty" collections like the Cosmic FX and the more recent Mineral FX collections. The pretty Muffin picked today comes from their Plastix Collection.

  I remember this color being one of my very first lemmings. I could not go on without having this color in my collection and I searched high and low until I found it, that was an awesome day. I could go on and on about my feelings on my older polishes back from when I first started blogging, but this could turn into a very long post. I love being able to look back at colors fondly now hahahah!!
