Just Having a Little Fun :)

Hey Everybody!
So today's post is a mani that I did a few weeks ago that I didn't get a chance to blog about.  I was planning on leaving my nails solid blue, but I got a little carried away :) Hope y'all enjoy!

I started off with a base of OPI What's with the Catittude?  It takes a good 2/3 coats to get the color solid, but it's a pretty sky blue.  For the design, I used the black nail art pen I got from Franchesca's.  I started the design with just the edgy half moon. Then I decided to have some fun with the ring finger, so I did a kind of argyle design with dots in the middle.  I like the way it turned out, and I definitely got a lot of compliments on the design.
I hope y'all enjoyed this post, and if you have any questions or requests for posts you would like to see leave a comment below.  Have a terrific Thursday!

Collective Pink Wednesday!

Hey There!
So today I am returning to Pink Wednesday! I have painted my nails pink on several Wednesdays, but I just haven't gotten around to posting them.  So today I decided to post the best of the pink manis I have done lately.  Hope you enjoy!

Alrighty, so this design started with a base of OPI Flashbulb Fuchsia.  This is one of those colors that I didn't like at all when I bought it.  I thought it was too bright for my skin tone.  However, over the last month I realized that I really love this color!  Anyway, I used a dotting tool for the half moon of polka dots.  The polish I used was OPI Pedal Faster, Suzi!  Cute, simple, and pink!

Now this is the look I did for Valentines day, but I never got a chance to do a post about it.  Good thing Pink Wednesday exists!  Anyway, I used Pretty Please Pink Crush for the base of this one.  I used two coats, but one pretty much did the job.  For the lip prints I used Bundle Monster plate BM02 and Sally Hansen Insta-dri in Silver Sweep.  For the rose I used Bundle Monster BM14 and Pretty Please Preppy in Pink.  I thought this was a perfect Valentines day mani :)
I hope y'all enjoyed this post, and I highly encourage you to participate in Pink Wednesday!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
