Zeus

21 Mar

Spring is finally here, although you wouldn’t know it by the dreary day we had. To celebrate I decided on a pastel..with a twist. I bought Sinful Color’s Zeus a while ago and haven’t had the chance to try it. It’s a pretty, dusty purple with pink shimmer. I did two coats of Gelous and then two coats of Zeus.  I thought I’d give my dotting tools another go, this time with OPI’s Yoga-Get-This-Blue.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

17 Mar

I was getting bored with my other St. Patty’s Day mani so I decided to change it up. I started with two coats of Sinful Color’s Base coat and then taped off my nail tips and used Ulta’s The Jungle Book.  Instead of stamping I decided to get in some practice with my dotting tools. I used Sally Hansen’s Spring Green.

 

Swirls of Blue

3 Mar

I drove home during lunch on Thursday to pick up my dotting tools and red angel plates from my mailbox. So exciting! I wasn’t sure what to use first! I wasn’t even sure I was ready to give up my sunny yellow manicure yet! So I started by adding little dots to yesterday’s mani.

So much fun, I was suprised how well my right hand came out, considering I thought my left hand would be a wreak trying to apply the dots in a tidy manner.

I hung around with that for a while, but since my husband was out a concert the whole night I decided to change it up. Trying another Kleancolor polish I went with Pastel Blue.

This is three coats. And I gotta say I’m rethinking these Kleancolors every time a try a new one, they’re awesome!

I decide to use Reg Angel plate RA 106. Because it is such a crazy pattern I thought I’d use a color that was similar to my base. I bought Konad’s special stamping polish in a pastel blue and it hasn’t got a lot of use yet, but I figured it would be perfect for this.

Finished it off with Essie’s To Dry For.

Here are a few pics of the Red Angel image plates and the dotting tools.
