Stamping Jelly

This mani reminds me of Barbie circa the 90s. Remember when Barbie was all about pink, butterflies, and flowers?

Originally, I wanted to do a delicate vintage rose mani. I don't know what happened. 4 of my 5 fingers are pretty and delicate. But I have this yellow and green index finger that's in your face loud. It's like that game, find the thing that doesn't belong in the group. I like it. It's different, and different is good.

Pink and Blue

My new stamper came today! I had to prep it because it wouldn't pick up the image. All you need is a nail filer/buffer and buff the soft part until it picks up the entire image. It took a few tries but it finally worked and it's perfect. This stamper is best for pattern stamping. It contours to your nails, which makes it much easier to get complete coverage.

Want to know what happens when I try to freehand sakuras. I end up making a mess on my nails, so instead, I stamped my sakuras.

Lemon Jelly

I avoided doing a Jelly Sandwich manicure for a long time. It doesn't seem to look right when I attempt it. I recently saw one I liked so I tried to recreate it. It still looks weird on me. Maybe I'm not doing it right.

Lavender Daisies

I'm not sure how I feel about this manicure. The lavender base color is gorgeous but the daisies are a bit messy. What do you think?

Aruba Blue & Silver Glitter Gradient

If I had to choose one television series to represent NYC, it would be Sex and the City. I love Sex and the City and would have marathons when I couldn't sleep. The nails I did tonight were inspired by a very important scene from the first movie. When Big proposed to Carrie with those gorgeous blue shoes.

This mani was inspired by a gorgeous piece of art I found on Google.

Black, White, and Silver

I've been playing around with different looks lately so today I decided to go for an edgier look. It's very different from my usual style but I kind of like it.

Polka Dots & Glitter

I saw this mani on Pinterest and saved it so I could recreate it. Here is the original source.

The colors are so adorable together and I love my glittery silver nail.
