Pink Rose

I think I'm seriously feeling Valentine's day creep up on me minute by minute. I know, I KNOW, it's still only January... but I just am loving pinks/reds/hearts/flowers... all the mushy-lovey stuff.

For this mani, I followed these steps:
  1. Apply 1 coat of CND Stickey base coat
  2. Apply 2 coats of OPI That's Hot! Pink
  3. On the accent nail, using a dotting tool and acrylic black craft paint, make 3 big swoops and fill them in. It creates a ruffle shape on the nail.
  4. Using a striper brush and white acrylic craft paint, begin painting a rose.
    • Start with small, curved lines. Begin making the lines larger as they curve around each other.
  5. Add a couple dots with a dotting tool on the outside of the rose.
  6. Finish with 2 coats of CND Super Shiney top coat.
I'm still working on my roses... they're just not there yet... but I like them! Today I'm wearing a bright pink/black/green scarf and they match perfectly! Yayy for matchy matchy!

Dotty Dot Dot.

There is beauty in simplicity.

This manicure was SO INCREDIBLY EASY.
I painted on two coats of OPI DS Reflection, added dots in increasing sizes with my dotting tool, and swiped on 2 coats of top coat.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

For the dots, all I did was use one dotting tool. 
When I needed them to be bigger, I just swirled the tool a little bit on my nail to make the dot bigger.
Is it as easy said as done? 
You betcha!

Enjoy the little, simple things in life this week.
They are beautiful.
You are beautiful.

PS>> I'm having a GIVEAWAY over at Aunie Sauce. It's open until January 24th and is for a beautiful leather bracelet.
Oh... and do this (look below) for me, will you?

Valentine's Plaid.


I am such a hypocrite. I haven't posted in over 2 weeks, and my nails have been NAKED almost the whole time. GASP!! 

That being said, I'm back. Woot woot. Today I'm spicing it up, a little early perhaps, with a simple plaid Valentine's heart design.

Basically, all I need to tell you is that I "heart" it. A lot. Me + gray = love right now.

Here are the steps:
  1. Apply 1 coat of CND Stickey base coat.
  2. Apply 2 coats of China Glaze Recycle.
  3. Make 2 horizontal and 2 vertical intersecting lines with white acrylic craft paint and a striping brush. I used the brush from one of my Stripe Rite (you can buy them at Sally's) bottles.
  4. Add a heart with pink acrylic craft paint and a dotting tool.
  5. Finish with 1 coat of CND Super Shiney top coat.
Do you heart it? Think you may try it?? Too early for V-day? Oh well... I was in the mood for gray and pink :)
