T-Rex Nail Vinyls - China Glaze New Birth and OPI Wharf Wharf Wharf

Hey People!

Ready for a super scary T-Rex mani?!  Yea, me neither so how about this adorable one using T-Rex nail vinyls from Vinyl It Up?  lol  How friggin cute are these vinyls?  I bought them just to use with OPI Wharf Wharf Wharf, I thought they would go really well together.  Check out what I came up with.

Isn't China Glaze New Birth the palest blue creme you've ever seen?  Sometimes it looks white, I just love it.  It's a little thin so I used 3 coats but I'm not complained.  See another mani using New Birth HERE.

Color Club East Austin Bright Coral and Gold mani!


Winter is really kicking my butt, it just won’t go away.  I know I sound like a broken record but I have another bright mani for my Winter blues lol Color Club East Austin is like Boom, Pow I’m bright in yo face!  Haha Check it out.

You may not have believed me when I said Color Club East Austin was bright lol  I have read it is a close dupe to China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy but I don’t have that one so I can’t say.  It’s a bright glowing coral peach.  Is it neon?  I think it’s one lightbulb away from being a neon haha!  To me, neon has that vibrating feel to it this glows but does not “vibrate” my eyeballs, does that even make sense?  I used 3 coats here because it can be a bit sheer if you use thinner coats.

Tweed nail art - Bundle Monster stamp plate BM-706

Hey People!

Today I have a double layer stamping mani to share, whoah I know.  I’m getting all crazy lol  Not really, I just stamped on each nail twice.  I used another Secret Garden Bundle Monster plate, BM-706 see my full review HERE!  The pattern I used from the plate is a sort of cross-hatch pattern, it reminded me of tweed lol  Check out my mani!

Isn’t this stamp pattern so cool?  The plate BM-706 stamped perfect and crisp.  The blue is Annie from Julep, and the white base is also Julep, Brigitte and it covers nicely in 2 coats.

Bliss Kiss Simply Smooth Negative Space nail art - Mani Swap!

Hey Everyone!

Today I have my first maniswap to share!  Reyna, Instagram @reynasnailart asked me to do one and I jumped at the chance.  She wanted to recreate my Floss Gloss basket weave mani, see my original HERE.  She posted a super cute negative space striping tape mani that I recreated.  Check out our collage!

Aren’t we so cute lol Thanks to Reyna for letting me use the collage she made.  The originals are on top and recreations on the bottom.

Here is a solo-shot of my recreation.  I used Bliss Kiss Simply Smooth base coat, since it has a really nice sheer light pink color it makes my nail beds “My Nails but better” haha!  It evens out their tone and covers up the slight nail staining I always seem to have.

Secret Garden Plate BM-705 - OPI Steady As She Rose and Loreal Masked Affair

Hey Everyone!

Today I have a 2nd mani using the Secret Garden stamping plates that Bundle Monster sent to me for review (see my full review HERE).  Plate BM-705 has all garden themed words and is probably the plate that jumped out at me first that I wanted to use, I love all the fonts they used!  It screamed for purple so I grabbed one of my all time fav grayed lavender polishes, OPI Steady as She Rose.  Check it out!

Secret Garden Bundle Monster Stamp Plate Review

Hi Everyone!

Today I have something really fun to share, Bundle Monster sent me their entire 25 pc Secret Gardenstamping plate collection $20.50 to review!  Do I want a Secret Garden on muh nails?  Hells Yeah.  I saw a few pics of the plates they posted on Instagram but once I knew they were sending me the set I wanted to be surprised so I stopped looking at them lol  And let me say, they nailed the Secret Garden theme!  The plates are full of trees, vines, scroll-y leaves, little forest creatures, and just things you think you’d find by a gnomes home lol  I’m picturing the Travelocity Gnome.

WARNING!  This post is pic heavy and I left the blue protective coating on for photographing because you get a little less glare that way, well at least I do lol  Onto the plates.

Bundle Monster Secret Garden Nail Stamping

Like my other Bundle Monster plates they come in a little plastic ziplock pouch.  The plastic is heavy duty and will survive many openings.  If you’re like me and don’t have many plates and you can just keep them stored in their pouches.  I’m sure eventually I’m going to need some sort of binder storage haha

This is me trying to artfully arrange the plates, but they just ended up looking like a sorry excuse for a snake lol
