‘R’ is for Rubber Ducky

October 9, 2016 Lisa 0

The ABC Challenge has started back up again with ‘R’. And what can be more ‘R’ than a rubber ducky? I’ve added stripes in the background so I can combine it with the 31-Day Challenge and free-handed the ducks on my silicon nail art mat. Phew! I think this will Read More

Like many other challenge participants, I’ve chosen to interpret “polka dot” as more “dotticure”. I had a handful of I

I bought some new Sinful Colors polishes before I left on vacation and the Iridescent Color collection is amazing. So I had to use one for the gradient manicure. “Shell Out” has a green shimmer that doesn’t just show up in the bottle. In fact, when used in a sponge Read More

Rainbow is my favorite color so deciding what I was going to do for this manicure was hard. However, I’d recently seen Cassie P do a nail art tutorial with Foil Flower Stamping. I went straight to ebay to buy myself some gradient nail foil. So yummy. It was both Read More

I was not happy with this, but at the pace I have to set to finish before the inlinkz close, I decided I wasn’t going to do a do-over. I used masking tape instead nail vinyls or nail art striping tape and I cut the strips too thick. Also, the Read More

I really wanted to have super pretty nails while I was at the steampunk convention. However, since we weren’t going straight to the con, I knew my nails would be battered and unpretty before I got there. The original plan was to buy press-on nails and see how well they Read More

I love a good butterfly manicure. Especially the full-wing kind. I tried to keep this manicure as simple as possible because I had a lot of sewing to do for a steampunk convention. Sometimes simple works. I’ve seen people free-hand the wings really well, but I had a stamping plate Read More

Trying to keep it simple since I have so much going on right now. I always love a good jelly with an interesting stamp color on top. The little dash of light shimmery blue just made me happier. I really love Revlon’s Parfumerie “Surf Spray”. It’s such a delicately cool Read More

I’ve wanted to do a yellow submarine manicure for a while. Uber Chic’s nail plate and this nail challenge offered the perfect opportunity. I focused on a few jelly nail sandwiches with white stamping and a tiny bit of yellow gradient and a few solid yellow nails with obviously white Read More

So immediately after posting I’d be trying to do this challenge, I ran into the reality of why I generally only paint my nails twice a week. I just have too many other hobbies and I’m not willing to give them up. Then I managed to not paint my nails Read More
