I'd Love to Stay and Chat, But I really Mustache!

The last Nail Art Ideas Linkup prompt is least favorite polish.  I figured I would blow this one off, because for the life of me I couldn't think of what polish to do.  So I started this manicure and reached for a glitter polish I hadn't used before.  I don't like this polish.  I love chunky glitters, but this one, like many of them is a beast to get off the brush in a the right way.  I tried to dumb some out and then place the glitters on individually, but I couldn't get them to pick up with my dotting tool.  Curses!!

So the polishes I used were Julep Alicia and China Glaze Don't Be A Flake.

I really like Alicia, the formula is great and it wears really nicely.  I had it on for a week and just had a it of tip wear when I took it off.

The mustaches are water decals from Bundle Monster.  The first decal I put on went on at a bit of an angel,  but I liked it, so I did it to all of them.

The glitter bums me out, but I really do like the overall manicure.  I hope you do too!

Pallet Cleanser

As I nice little pallet cleanser after all those heart and sugar manicures, I give you skulls.

Lets be honest I will use any excuse to do skulls, but Nail Art Ideas Linkup provided a nice one.

The polishes I used were China Glaze Liquid Leather, Flying Dragon, Finger Paints Movie In The Park, and Konad Special Black.  The stamping was done with Cheeky CH49.

I love the look of this, but I hated the staying power. . . or lack there of.  It lasted two days before it started chipping.  I don't know what it is with some neon polishes, but they chip like crazy on me and FD is a perfect example of that.

Well, I hope you liked this.  See you soon!

You Nail'd it as My Valentine!

My last "Valentine" manicure of the year.  Yep, it is Valentines and my excuse to let out the girly nail art designs is almost over.  Who am I kidding, I'll do heart, rose, candy designs when ever I want. . . if  I want to. . .

This is a common design and I thought I would try my hand at it.  I used China Glaze Pelican Gray, Konad Special Red, and Black.  The stamp designs are Bundle Monster BM-H16 and BM-405.  I also used a loose glitter heart that I bought at my once existent local nail art supply store.

I hope you all have a nice Valentine's Day.  I hope it is whatever you want it to be.
