Essie Bikini So Teeny With Dots + Pedicure nightmare

Wearing some dots today. :) The dots are from a Cheeky plate and were sort of hard to stamp. It was strange. I was trying to be super careful but you can see that some of the dots are warped. I think I need to practice a bit more with this one. :)

Anyhow, here are some dots!

Pedicure Nightmare

In other news, I had an awful pedicure over the weekend. The technician cut my toes multiple times! I’ve always heard that you should never trim your cuticles, but just push them back. I generally don’t have much dead cuticle to work with anyway, so I’ve never had to warn anyone to NOT trim my cuticles. Anyway, before I knew it the tech was going to town on my toes and making me bleed! Nip! Nip! Nip! I could feel her cutting my skin!

I should have spoken up sooner. Learn from me, people! SPEAK UP AND TELL THEM THEY ARE HURTING YOU! She was going so fast, I just assumed it would be over quickly. Three days later and I still can’t wear socks or closed toe shoes because they rub against my healing WOUNDS. :(

Dude. Never again. I’ll just do my own dang pedicure, thanks.

Randomness

Currently rocking A-England Avalon. Can’t get enough of that color. So pretty!

I’ve been super busy, as you can tell by the lack of posts here. :) I did have a failed attempt at a water marbling manicure, though. After a few fingers I gave up. It was much MUCH too messy (even with tape around my cuticles). Maybe one of these days I’ll try it again?

In the meantime, I’ve been loving things I see online…

Over at YouTube, MissJenFABULOUS shared this awesome braided manicure… (you can also see it at her blog HERE)…

And I’m in love with this manicure by Pshiiit. I have Essie Mint Candy Apple so I’m sorely tempted to recreate the look myself. :)

Oops! You can see some stray Mannie fur in these photos. I suppose I should have waited until after taking pictures to scratch his ears. ;)

White with Black Lines Stamped Manicure

Happy Sunday, all!

I have a simple yet striking manicure for you today. When I first saw the BM-319 plate in the new 2012 Bundle Monster pack, I really wanted to try this design using black and white. I think it’s just so modern looking. :)

Anyhow, enjoy! I also filmed the manicure as well. :)

Base Color: China Glaze White on White, Nicole By OPI It’s All About the Glam
Stamping Color: Konad Special Polish Black
Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster BM-319

Princess Nails?

This color and stamp combination makes me think of princesses for some reason. The green just needs to be slightly more blue and I would say they are Princess Jasmine nails. :)

Please excuse the chip on my thumb and the obvious tip wear. I did this manicure two nights ago and am just now getting a chance to take a photo.

Base color: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Chlorophyll
Stamping Color: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Silver Sweep
Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster BM-306

Nail Stamping Image Plate Storage

Last week as I was picking out images to stamp on my nails, I was completely fed up with my lack of organization when it comes to the plethora of nail plates I’ve acquired over the last couple years. I went to Google and started searching. There were some great solution, but none that I liked more than this so I wanted to share it with you all! :)

I wish I could take credit for this idea. It’s brilliant!. I’m not sure who originally came up with this idea since I found it in multiple places online. Anyhow, here’s my nail stamping image plate storage solution…
