LadyQueen Water Decals - Feathers

Hey everyone!

Today I have some water decal nail art to share with you!

LadyQueen got in touch with me again, and asked if I would be interested in picking out some water decals, and giving them a go - which of course I said 'yes' to!

I got 3 sets (you'll see the others later on..) - and decided to use the dark purple feathers first. (you can scope out the set HERE).

I started off with a base of OPI You're Such a Budapest, and then applied the decals.

My only complaint..

They all go on backwards.

Like, after you soak them in some water, and apply to your nail, and sponge the backside, you take away the paper backing, and you are left with an upside down decal - but thankfully I just quickly manipulate them with tweezers, grab hold, flip them, then put them in place! It is an extra step, and one you have to be fairly quick about - but they do work. I will have to see if the others do that as well. Because, if I am going to use something else to do nail art (ie: decals, …

Star Vinyls

Hey everyone!

Today I share some nails that I am a major fan of! I asked Shawna at My Nails Did Vinyls to make some new stencils that I would want.. and, of course, she delivered! One set I asked her create was stars. I had to use them asap.. and I knew the colour combo I wanted to do before they got to me.


I used:

I started with 2 coats of Caribbean Island (OBSESSED with that polish.. it is just.. perfect!), then I applied a layer of Easy Peel around my nails (purchase that HERE), then I placed on a vinyl (purchase HERE (when she is back - she is off getting married right now)), sponged on the silver glittery-ness, peeled everything off, and slapped on some top coat. Perfect!

Floral Nails featuring Madam Glam nail polish

Hello everyone!

Long time, no see. I know.

Let's see.. during my absence I: moved, transitioned into 'birthday season', and had something really horrible happen - but I don't want to really discuss that right now. Though, this horrible thing that happened is the reason behind me wanting to do nail art tonight..

PLUS! I wanted to share some awesome Madam Glam polish that was so kindly sent out to me. I must say, I am quite the fan of their formula.. and this one colour.. oh maaaaaan.

I was contacted by a rep from Madam Glam (not sure if I can use the name or not.. but, Hi A!) - and she asked if I was interested in trying out some more products. Duh, of course! She told me to select a couple shades, but I went a different route - I feel like I am constantly picking the same types of colours - so I asked her to choose for me.

She did good!

These were the polish I was sent:
Midnight
Vintage Girl
Heart Stone
Caribbean Island

 I also had two other new to me polish hanging out on…
