PCF Summer Challenge: Blue + Aqua + Green

Today's challenge is a blue, aqua, and green mani. Hopefully Urban Outfitters Sea Dust is considered an aqua. That is my base, and I used Sally Hansen Insta-dri Co-Bolt Blue and Bundle Monster BM-221 to stamp the leopard print. Then filled in the spots with Sally Hansen Insta-dri Lickety-Split Lime.

Hope you like and thanks for looking. Please check out the other bloggers doing the summer challenge!

PCF Summer Challenge: Wimbeldon

Today's challenge is Wimbledon. I don't know a thing about tennis so a quick google search lead me to find this logo:

I used purple (Sinful Colors Verbena), green (Wet N Wild SaGreena the Teenage Witch), and gold (Revlon Gold Coin). I did a funky french manicure and tried to make the tennis rackets and tennis ball as an accent. Since I did the french freehand, I just used the gold to cover up the border between the purple and green.

Monkey See Monkey Do Monday: ThatsSOfresh Rainbow shooting stars

Monkey See Monkey Do Mondays are where we re-create manis from different blogs or pictures we have "pinned" on Pinterest, and link back to the original blogger!

Today I picked a pin from one of my favorite nail art blogs, ThatsSOfresh. She has so many designs I want to try! I made a rainbow with stripers and stamped white stars across it. I even managed to do both hands today!

 The base color is Cult Nails Nevermore. The colors I used for the rainbow are Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lickety-Split Lime, Brisk Blue, Orange Impulse, and Speedy Sunburst and Sinful Colors Verbena. The stamp is Cheeky CH26 and Konad Special White.

Lazy Sunday

I don't have much to blog about today. Just wanted to show you some things I've found and done this weekend. These are all low quality pics from my phone so sorry in advance.

Nails of the day: Urban Outfitters Sea Dust (possible Lippmann Mermaid's Dream dupe)

Tried making my own version of Lynnderella When the Moon Was a Star and failed.
I have a novelty Halloween polish I almost got rid of with holographic stars and moons in it. Then I added blue and gold glitters. What was I thinking?

And an awesome score of OPI DS Sapphire I found at........CVS! They were less than $8 each ($8.50 but I had a 30% off coupon!)


Thanks for looking!

Sassy Lacquer: NERD LACQUER GIVEAWAY!

 Please go visit Sassy Lacquer. She is giving away 4 Nerd Lacquers! Resolutionary, Carbon Allotrope, Event Horizon, and Gorramit.

Sassy Lacquer: NERD LACQUER GIVEAWAY!: Well, I have been pondering this decision lately and I have decided to GIVEAWAY my extra Nerd Lacquer polishes!! (FYI: These aren't the act...

PCF Summer Challenge: Picnic


Today's challenge is a picnic mani. 


They are ants on a picnic blanket! I didn't realize until I was editing the picture that my pinky got smudged. Grr! Oh well too lazy to re-do it. So I used a base of Wet N Wild French White Creme, stamped with Sally Hansen Rapid Red and Mash-50. The "ants" is from Wet N Wild Tangled In My Web. Inspiration for this came from Polish Art Addiction and Chalkboard Nails. I think this is really cute in its own weird way. I may have to wear it for a day or two!

Thanks for looking. Please see the other blogs participating in the challenge!

PCF Summer Challenge: Jungle mani or Parrots

I chose to do Parrots as my challenge mani today. Well parrot wings really... 

source: google images


I followed a Nailside tutorial for the design. The colors I used were Sally Hansen Insta-dri Co-Bolt Blue, Color Club What a Shock!, Color Club Volt of Light, and Sally Hansen Insta-dri Rapid Red. (Sorry I am holding a completely unrelated bottle of polish. It was the closest to me when I was taking pics)

Hope you like and thanks for reading! Please make sure to visit the other blogs!

PCF Summer Challenge: Ice Cream Sundaes

Today's challenge is ice cream sundaes. This is my vanilla ice cream sundae with hot fudge and sprinkles and a cherry on top. 


Colors I used: Wet n Wild French White Creme, Wet n Wild RIP Black Magic (the sprinkles), Wet n Wild Black Creme, Spoiled Distant Memory, China Glaze Mahogany Magic, and a red glitter for the cherry.

PCF Summer Challenge: Ballooning or Kites

This mani came out so messy, mainly because of the blue base color I used. It is Sally Hansen Insta-dri Brisk Blue. It stained my nails and my cuticles when I tried to clean up. Then my top coat (Poshe) bubbled! Ugh. Besides those two minor things, I like how it came out, even if the bows are as big as the kite. lol The stamp I used for the background is Mash-40. I thought it would look like wind blowing. On my thumb I used Revlon Whimsical just because I wanted to see what it would look like.

Thanks for looking and please see these other blogs.

MSMD Mondays: Mermaid Nails

This is the first time I've tried to do mermaid nails. I finally got a great stamping plate to use, MASH-39, which has the fish scales pattern. I didn't have one exact mani that I used as a guide. I've just seen several lately that I've liked. Some examples are from Natalie from heartNAT and Cristina from Let Them Have Polish.

My base is Sinful Colors Blue By You. It is a very bright blue with some teal shimmer. It is so pretty.

Then I sponged Zoya Zusa, Orly Mermaid Tale, and love & beauty gold glitter.

I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White for the fish scales. If I haven't said this already, I love these Mash plates! They have seriously made stamping effortless.

Dandy Nails Part 2: Bathed In Light

This is part two of my review of indie polishes made created by Sandy at Dandy Nails. Part one was for Wingless and can be found here. My second purchase is Bathed In Light. This is a perfect name for this polish. I don't want to sound corny, but there is something ethereal about this polish.

 3 coats, in the sun
This is a duo-chrome scattered holo polish. It is gorgeous. It shifts from purple to gray. I think I've even seen  pink and green!


It is a little sheer but you can build up the opaqueness easily. I wore three coats in all these pics. The formula is awesome and easy to work with. I did not have any issues with clean up. 

3 coats, in the shade
There are micro holographic glitter throughout. It looks like it would be gritty but that is not the case at all. I did use a top coat just because I always use top coat.


I seriously love this. I think it is my favorite indie polish I have bought so far. Hope you get a chance to pick one up yourself!

Thanks for looking!

PCF Summer Challenge: Hippie/Retro/Summer of Love

Today's challenge is Hippie/ Retro/ Summer of Love nails! I don't know if this screams retro but I think it is very "hippie-ish" and psychedelic. I used all of the neon colors from Color Club Electro Candy collection.


I put a thick coat of Wet N Wild French White Creme. Then I used a dotting tool and used all the neon colors and dotted them all over while the base coat was still wet. Then I used a non fast dry top coat and it smeared all the dots together to make this cool water color look. It took a while to dry because of the thick base coat.

Then, and I probably shouldn't have, I put a layer of Wet N Wild Kaleidoscope. I used a england st. george to stamp the suspicious leaf on my ring finger. lol. The stamp came from Bundle Monster BM07.

Hope you like. Please visit the other blogs too! Thanks for looking!

PCF Summer Challenge: Ladybird

Today's challenge is a ladybird, or ladybug. I almost skipped this day. I'm not a fan of ladybug art. Every ladybug picture that isn't a real photo of one just looks cartooney and pre-schoolish  KWIM? But I persevered. 

Ladybugs in the grass
I changed them up a bit and made yellow ladybugs instead of red. I'm still not a fan. lol 
The base is Klean Color Holo Yellow and the black is a england Bridal Veil

Dandy Nails Part 1: Wingless

I recently placed an order with Dandy Nails. Her shop is temporarily closed and she is all sold out now. I was only able to snag two polishes but I'm so happy with both of them. Today I want to show you Wingless. It is a blue and gold shard glitters in a clear base. I love love love it! I will share my other purchase with you on another post so stay tuned for that!


This is Wingless. These glitters are so shiny, light just bounces off them no matter what. I could not take a good picture for anything because of all the reflection coming off it. I'm wearing one coat on top of Color Club Nomadic Nude. The glitters lie flat for the most part. I had a piece or two stick up but I pushed them down and put a coat of Gelous and Poshe on top and things were fine. The formula was thick, as expected but so easy to work with. There is decent coverage with just one coat. I love this!

Here is a close up of the bottle.

Are shard glitters your thing? These are my favorite type of glitters right now!

PCF Summer Challenge: Hot Pink Freestyle Day

Today is Hot Pink Freestyle Day. Since I already did a hot pink mani for this challenge, I went a little lazy with this one. Nothing fancy, I just stamped a quick zebra print.


This is from the new MASH plates that I just got today. Base is Sally Hansen Insta-dri Speedy Sunburst. The plate is Mash-41 and it was stamped on with Wet N Wild Black Creme.

Thanks for looking! Please be sure to visit the others taking part in the Purple Crumpet Fairy Summer Challenge!

PCF Summer Challenge: Gardening


Today's challenge is Gardening. I'm not much of a gardener. I tend to kill whatever I try to plant. I did manage to grow strawberries last summer so I decided to go with that. It didn't die but was apparently the main source of food for a mouse or bird. Never got to taste any of the berries myself. :(  I also live in an area of California that is famous for strawberries. Hurray for strawberries!


The green base is Sally Hansen Insta-dri Lickety-Split Lime. The flowers are Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Firefly. The strawberry is Sally Hansen Insta-dri Rapid Red and Lickety-Split Lime. The darker leaves is from a england St. George.

MSMD Monday: Waiting Sucks

So I kind of cheated and actually did these yesterday for the True Blood season premier! The inspiration came from this post by Nails by Kayla Shevonne. She includes a tutorial as well. I love the way it turned out but I did have trouble making the drips of blood look like drips of blood. Oh well!

Birthday Nail Mail


I received my second birthday club package from Stephanie from Polished Paige.These are the polishes I got. I received my first Jessica polish, Monarch. I love grays! Also I did not know that China Glaze has a polish with literally my name on it. It is called Stella! That's so cool.
Jessica Monarch, Spoiled Pet My Peacock, China Glaze Stella, Spoiled The Parking Meteor Expired

She also got me these extras, which I love. The little compact mirror is freakin' adorable.
The pink bag is a little lunch tote. It says, "Lunch time will make everyone happy." The little yellow rectangle with hearts on it is a compact mirror. I got Honey Cream shea butter lip balm by One.  A cute coin purse that was filled with candy. More strawberry candies. Orly Nail whitening, which I really need after the last summer challenge mani. The blue I used totally stained my nails and I don't usually get stained nails.

Thanks Stephanie!

PCF Summer Challenge: Street Fete/Fayre

Today's challenge is a Summer Street Fete/Fayre which probably to us in the States is a block party. The pinky and pointer finger are bunting and middle and ring finger are balloons floating up into the sky. Then I have a group of balloons on the thumb. I used pretty much all Sally Hansen Insta-dry except for the clouds. The base is Brisk Blue. The clouds are stamped with a fauxnad stamping plate from Born Pretty. It is plate m79. The color I used is Sinful Colors Snow Me White which turns out to be a great white to use for stamping.

Hope you liked this and please remember to visit the other blogs also!

PCF Summer Challenge: HOT HOT HOT Combo

I'm not sure what a HOT HOT HOT combo is supposed to mean other than I could choose colors that I liked together. I picked purple and gold. The base of this is China Glaze Stella and the stars are stamped with Sally Hansen Gold Chrome pen and the DRK A plate. Tonight is my daughter's sixth grade graduation and the "mascot", I guess you call it, are Superstars. That's what they call themselves. So I chose to go with the stars stamp.

I rushed the stamping, that's why it is smudged. This plate is awesome!

PCF Summer Challenge Pink + Blue Day


Today is pink and blue day for the summer challenge. This is what I did. I used various blues and pinks. I guess this is a patchwork mani? I had wanted to do a tape mani but when I started taping off the sections I decided that was too much of a hassle. Screw the tape, this was all free hand baby! lol Honestly it didn't really matter to me if the sections of colors met too much in the middle since I went over it with a dark line anyway. It hid the imperfections quite well. It reminds me of Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas.

PCF Summer Challenge: Queen's Diamond Jubilee

I'm really enjoying this summer challenge. I wasn't much of a nail artist to begin with but it just seems boring now to just "paint" my nails. I feel like I have to add something to them as well. This day's theme is the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The Diamond Jubilee is a celebration to mark the 60th Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's reign on the throne.

I tried again at free-handing Union Jack. It came out so-so. I also free-handed the 60 and the diamond. I love how my diamond came out! That is just a diamond shape using China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara. Then I added details with Wet N Wild Black Creme. The crown is stamped on with Sally Hanson Gold Chrome pen and the plate is Bundle Monster BM08. Then I just placed small glitters one by one with a dotting tool. What do you think?

MSMD Monday: Black and White with Studs

It is Monkey See Monkey Do Monday! Monkey See Monkey Do Mondays are where we re-create manis from different blogs or pictures we have "pinned" on Pinterest, and link back to the original blogger. Today's mani is one I found on Tumblr by Hey, Nice Nails!  That is the link to the original. I love that she used studs. I have a bunch and needed some idea on how to use them so I'm glad I found this.



Thanks for looking! Please check out the other bloggers below!

It's My Birthday...Month!


I am in a nail polish birthday group on facebook. The idea was started by Lacquered Me. Basically there are twelve of us and each person is assigned a birthday month. Then each person sends a nail polish gift to that person who has the birthday month. I have June. It is my birthday month. It doesn't have to be your actual birthday, as mine is really in March.

 I have made some incredible friends as all the girls in my group are amazing! If I never joined this group, I probably wouldn't know about the Purple Crumpet Fairy nail art challenge group or the Adventures in Stamping group on facebook, both started by Debbie from the Crumpet. The nail polish community is just really amazing and I'm just so happy to be a part of it. Ok enough about this, now lets show you my first gift from Debbie herself.

a england St. George has been a lemming of mine for a while and I'm so happy to get this! I also received Max Factor Fantasy Fire. She also made me a pretty frosty blue franken she called Emerald Estella. It has some silver holographic glitter in it. So pretty!

Also I received from Debbie  two of the new Barry M's and Models Own Hed Kandi Glitters. These were purchases she was able to make for me. She is from the UK and these aren't availabe stateside I don't think.
I will be getting more gifts throughout the month, so stay tuned! Thanks in advance ladies!

PCF Summer Challenge: Jubilee Street Party

I got a new camera. Good news, it takes great photos. Bad news, it shows every little imperfection. I need to moisturize! Bleh. I might have to go back to the old camera. Anyway, back to the summer challenge. This is a street party Jubilee!  So on my thumb (not shown, obviously) and pinky are confetti glitter. Confetti says party right? My ring finger is my attempt at the Union Jack. I'm so sorry, hope that didn't offend any readers from the UK. The middle finger and pointer finger are party banners. I stamped a crown and added more confetti glitter. I love that I found this glitter at Forever 21 for $2.80!

PCF Summer Challenge: Swimming Pool

The colors I used from thumb to pinkie: Sinful Colors Be Happy, Sinful Colors Greek Isles, Sinful Colors Savage, Sinful Colors Grecian Sun, and Sinful Colors Neptune. The stripe is Sally Hansen Thinking of Blue. The flakies are Finger Paints Motley.

Today this is my "swimming pool". I did an ombre to show the shallow to deep ends of the pool. The lines down the center are the markings for the lap lanes. Also it was hard to capture in the picture, but I added a top coat of flakies. I wanted it to look like the reflections of the ripples, kind of like this picture:
