Go get it little buddy :) Happy Easter

One of my few and far between hand painted designs. It takes time and patience to create designs like this especially on the dreaded Right I used Slime by Urban Outfitters for the base, Femme Fatale by Pure Ice for the Grass, and Ulta Bang for the carrot. Happy Easter Everyone!

MAD FOR PLAID: I've been absent...I'm that cool?

I'm back :) I missed blogging, but sometimes you just fall off the wagon. I hope you all will welcome me back. This is a design I created just for fun. The flower is hand painted. I used Zoya Pippa for the dot, and Sally Hansen for the petals.  The pattern was created using the very first plate I ever bought from Konad #m60. I used Silver Mercedes by Pure Ice for the stamp (if you don't own this polish you should, hands down the best stamping silver I've come across). The base is a lovely Ulta Polish in Moody Blues. I now have well over 200 bottles of polish, and plan to post a nail polish collection soon.

Konad Special Polish Review

Is it possible to fall in love with a polish, yep it sure is :) And I have falling hard for KONAD Special Polish. This is my first time using Konad, and boy what a difference. It is funny 2 years of stamping, and just now purchased Konad Special Polish. It isn't really that expensive... $4 a bottle? Not bad... So why did I wait? I have to say this polish is thick and similar to plastic on the nails. The image is so crisp clean, opaque! The pictures speak volumes so check them out.

Genaric White Polish

Wet & Wild Fast Dry Black (as you can see
this polish doesn't stamp as clear, spotty
in some spots missing in others.
Konad Special Polish (as opaque as polish can get, no way color is
getting through this polish

My Cloud & Rainbow design, Base is another ULTA Polish, Stamp was done with a combo of Bundle Monster's second & third sets

Konad Special Black

Where has Brit been?

It is summer...that is where I have been :) But now it is cooling down and I am back. So I have a new design for all of you using my favorite cheeky plate of all time! This is their large plate B. For the base I used an ULTA polish (on sale right now for $2) and I stamped with my standard Silver Mercedes by Pure Ice. I am starting some detail work and I'll have a post about the brushes I use. Basically the smaller the better. The detail work was done with ULTA Indi-go-girl.

Thanks for the inspiration Cindy :) Hope you are enjoying your plates too.

Bundle Monster 3rd Set Plates

Here's a better look at the plates. As for quality I had a chance to test a few out last night. The roses work amazing! The flowers and the ribbons are going to take some effort. I really can't comment on how the quality is just yet though. I can't really test them out anytime soon though, because I have dishes to do :( Well really how much do I really need to do my dishes?  Enjoy!
