My Valentine's Mani's 2014

This is 2 coats of Colors By Llarowe Little Red Corvette, followed by a coat of Nail Nation 3000 Red Tint Holo Top Coat.  I used  a Cici & Sisi plate that came in a beginner stamping bundle that I purchased from Amazon. I used Sally Hansen Quick Fry Racer Red to stamp.
This is 2 coats of a light pink polish stamped with Pueen Love Elements bundle set using Konad Black polish. The accent nail is from a MASH stamper set and I used OPI Mod About You to stamp over the sally Hansen black.
This is Mod Laquer Pink Fallout over a light pink polish.  I added the black heart glitter. The accent nail is Nails Inc. Beaded lacquer.
This is Dollish Polish in Heart Breaker over a light pink polish.

All polishes were applied over OPI Natural Nail Basecoat, and all polishes were topped with Klean Kristi's Buttercream Cupcake fragranced top coat which can be purchased HERE

I hope you enjoyed my 2014 Valentine's day mani's!

My Superbowl Nails Using Colors By Llarowe Seahawks Lime & Yo,Cupid, Take A Hike!

I am not into sports, I can't sit thru a football game, it's just not my thing.  I felt bad as I live in Washington and should be interested as my state was playing. That's the wonderful thing about polish... I can show support in a creative way.  I may not care about the game, but I love the colors! :)
So I did this very simple nail look for the superbowl using Colors by Llarowe  limited edition Superbowl color in Seahawks Lime, and her February A Box Indied color Yo, Cupid, take A Hike!.  I used a Color Club black striper down the middle.  1 coat of OPI Natural Nail below, 1 coat of Klean Kristie's   Fragranced Top Coat on top.

The Llarowe polishes are both awesome, 2 coat dreamy application, vibrant holo, and gorgeous color.  This was my 1st attempt at free hand nail art and using the Color Club striper brush was easy and came out ok!
