Changing leaves

I absolutely love when the leaves start changing in the Fall.  
I was out for a walk in my neighborhood and saw the most beautiful tree with yellow, orange and red leaves, so I grabbed some leaves that had fallen to the ground to use as inspiration, and got to work creating this manicure. 

For the base, I did a gradient using FingerPaints Patent Red, Tie Dye Tangerine, and Yellow Out Man. 
I wanted the leaves to pop out against the bright background colors so I decided to try my hand at double stamping. 

I was so happy with how this came out, it made me smile each time I looked down at my hands the entire week I wore this manicure!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!
Every mother wants flowers on Mother's Day so 
I thought the perfect shade to wear on my nails today would be Pink Daisy from SensatioNail.

I had to add some pink daisies to match!

FingerPaints Hard As Steel

FingerPaints Hard as Steel collection provides you with the beauty of color while working to strengthen your nails. 

Kiss Me Like Hue Mean It is the perfect red cream shade.

I Have the Painter's Hues is a gorgeous berry cream shade.

A P-ink Mess is a great bright pink cream.

Lavender Brushstrokes is a favorite because I love purples.

Peek-A-Hue is a great Summer shade, a bright coral red cream.

Shut The Front Salvador is a pretty pink cream shade.

Ink You Cute is a delicate pale pink cream shade.

My Best Self-Portrait is a unique shade,  its a nude base with pink shimmers throughout. 

Stop! Impasto! is a cool toned brown with silver shimmers.

I'm a fan of these polishes, I did a wear test and my mani lasted a week on my nails without chipping and it did seem to provide some strength as well. 
These are available now in Sally Beauty Supply stores!

I was inspired by the weather to do this manicure, which reminded me of rain and clouds.  

My base color is a gradient using Sally Hansen Set Sail, OPI Get Ryd-of-thym blues and China Glaze Breath of Fresh Air. I stamped using Born Pretty Store plate BP-L003

FingerPaints Project Runway Collection

Project Runway is a limited edition collection featuring shades chosen by Project Runway Season 14 winner, Ashley Tipton.
All the shades are inspired by her finale collection on the show, and are all perfect Spring colors!

Blushing with Excitement is a pink creme shade. 

Lavender Love is a gorgeous purple pastel creme, purples are my favorite so I really love this one!

Party Teal Dawn is a mint crelly.

50 Shades of Ashley is an iridescent purple with flashes of green that show when the sun catches it. Once again, I'm a sucker for purples so I really love this one too!

Thank You Berry Much is a deep berry creme, I'm really digging this one too! 

Beverly's Touch is a shimmery metallic gold. 

As usual with FingerPaints polish, all of these applied wonderfully. I used 2 coats for each shade, except for 50 Shades of Ashley, that one was a bit more sheer. 

You can find this collection in your local Sally Beauty Supply store or on their website from April-June 2016
