OMD3 Day 28, Princess. Black and White French

This girlie OMD3 Princess prompt inspired look was created using an image from plate VL-019 from Vivid Lacquer. Underneath was a simple China Glaze White on White and clear polish gradient.the stamping was Konad Black. I created this look to wear to my cousins wedding, and what could be more Princess-y than a wedding!

I'm not really a French mani kinda girl, but these I rocked for almost a week!

Cheers all,

OMD3 Day 23, Under the Sea Nails

My Under The Sea OMD3 prompt nails were so very cool in person. I created a distressed background using Nabi Ski and My Boyfriend Scales Walls from OPI. Then I stamped waves in White from Konad and used advanced stamping for the Jellyfish. Bothe the Jellies and waves were from BM-504.

I saw these jellies filled in purple by someone else a while back and just had to recreate over my water.

OMD3, Day 21 Travel

This one was what I wore recently for Canada Day. I decided to save it for the Travel prompt for OMD3. This Bundle Monster leaves were stamped with Go Crazy Red from China Glaze and the dots were black acrylic paint.

I had fun wearing this festive and graphical look.

Cheers all,

OMD3 Day 20, Jewel

I didn't know what to post for OMD3 Jewel day so I decided to do my first ever Sharpie look.
I used a black sharpie and alcohol to create the marbling in this one, but to change it up I decided to try it on a holo. The pink base was two coats of Engorgeous by CBL. In keeping with the theme, I added two stones while my Seche was still tacky.

It's different, and I'll definitely try this technique out again. I can't wait to try it on a cream as well. Oh, an FYI if you attempt bleeds into your sidewall the whole time. It was fairly impossible to clean it up for my pictures.

Cheers all,

Twinsies with Copycat Claws, Sand Castle Nails

These were a cute design Serene from Copycat Claws and I picked out for some Twinsie fun today. I'd been wanting to work on some really summery and intricate freehand stuff and Serene was up for the challenge too. Once finished I got lucky to see that my little crab friend helps me fill in Day 22 of OMD3 for the Star Sign prompt. The symbol for the Star Sign for Cancer is actually a Crab, so it works out perfectly! I have to tell you guys this was a really fun look to work on, and especially with someone else. Don't forget to follow this link over to see Serene's. For my base I used My Boyfriend Scaled Walls from OPI and the rest was created in acrylic with my tiniest detail brush and matted with Cult Nails Wax That.

The first picture I took to show you how I began to outline the image as these across the nails designs can be tricky to line up.

I hope you guys love our crabby lil guys as much as we did. Don't forget to visit Serene linked here if you haven't already!

Cheers all,

OMD3 Day 18, Love Nails

Ok guys I'm back! I've been hitting the summer wedding circuit hard, and they've been busy family wedding too. Today's look is Love for OMD3. Actually I'm behind and will try and catch you up the next two days. For this I used a base of Finger Paints Pop Art Purple and stamped the Bundle Monster hearts from BM-620 in Konad White. I then used a small dotter to fill some of the hearts in OPI Birthday Babe and Uptown from NYC Color. Then Wax That from Cult Nails.

It's hard to not look at this one as a Valentine's look with all those hearts, but it's cute and very girlie so it works for me!

Cheers all,

Digital Dozen Does Neon, Summer Flip Flops

Today's neon-spiration came from a cute pair of children's flip flops on Etsy linked here. Today's Shoe day for OMD3 and Day 5 for Neon Week for the Digital Dozen. Neon Shoes is pretty specific, and it's also why I love when challenges line up. The suggestions you end up with can be awesome. It didn't work out for every DD day, but today's double prompt might be my fave DD for this week! I used Celtic Sun from China Glaze...yet another neon green, and stamped this leafy Bundle Monster image. I topped it in Seche so I could see how cool and abstract this turned out alone before I freehanded on the random flowers. I then matted, and it was so good matte!

Hope you guys had a great week out in the real world! Check out my girls Day 5 creations below!

Digital Dozen Does Neon, Bubbles

As you can tell by my shorties in this post I actually did this look early in the month right after a cut down. I loved the combo so much that I had to keep it in the running! I also really need to figure out the names for all the neons in that unlabelled set of Color Club polishes I got at Winners because I keep reusing this green! Anywa, the bubble image is from Moyou Artist Collection plate 15 and stamped with Konad Black. After that I dotted in the royal Blue dots in acrylic blue paint for a pop of colour. I then matted the whole thing in Cult Wax That!

So short and cute! I loved this combo!

Digital Dozen Does Neon, Cats

Today is Kitties for OMD3 and Day 3 of Neon for Digital Dozen. I wasn't sure how the two would go together, but I thought I'd try. Here's where we ended up. I used Wondrous Watermelon from Dragon Claw Polish and Birthday Babe from OPI to create another vertical gradient. I really love how the silver takes on a pinkish tone too!

Meooooow, meow, meow, purrrrrrrrrr....Digital Dozen below.....meow!

Cheers all,

Digital Dozen Does Neon, Fish Bones

Today is Fish prompt day for OMD3 and Day 2 for Neon, so for this one I went looking in my plates for a fish bones stamp. I swear I had one in one of the Bundle Monster sets I own. Anyway, I was able to find this Herringbone pattern instead. For my base I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and the Blue and Pink are Sinful Colors Endless Blue and another unnamed neon from Color Club. The image is from plate BM-606 from Bundle Monster.

I really liked this. It was such a party on my nails. I wore this on both hands for a night away with the hubs. I created it to match a blouse I wore out for dinner.

Cheers all,

Digital Dozen does Neon, The Secret Garden

So this is Day 1 for Neon Week for me and the girls of the Digital Dozen. For today I wanted to continue practicing my advanced stamping and decal making. I chose to do a floral, because it's OMD3 Book Day today as well. I've recently been reading the condensed adapted children's versions of classics to my kids. We've done Alice in Wonderland and the Wizard of Oz. The next classic is The Secret Garden, which I just loved when I was young or my son has his eye on 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. For anyone with kids, these books would be at your library and are adapted for children by a company Called Stepping Stone Classics. I'm not reviewing for them or anything, I'm just so thrilled I found these. Anywho, this mani uses KBShimmer PT Young Thing for that amazing holo, and My Indie Polish;
as well as I dab here and there of a few older polishes from my stash. I used the advanced stamping technique for all but the holo finger. For the holo finger I created a decal on my stamper and then applied it to the finger when dry. 

Loved this manicure. It was so layered looking in person!

OMD3 Day 10, Floral. Tropical Skitlette, Advanced Stamping

This post is for Day 10 OMD3 for the Floral Prompt. This image is from BM XL-109 from the newer Polynesian Plate release. I wanted to work on my advanced stamping with these, All the base colours are from My Indie Polish;
- Pow-Pink
- Zap-Blue
I then used complimentary colours to add the centre to each flower. I waited about 20 seconds for each centre to dry before stamping these directly to the nail and top coating.

These were shocking and fun in person, and way easier than I thought the advanced stamping would be.

Cheers all,

OMD3 Day 11, Leaves and Peeking Panda's

This one here was for OMD3 Leaves Prompt! I've wanted Pandas on my nails forever, so I was stoked to get this Bamboo image on the Polynesian plate BM XL-109 from Bundle Monster. You guys tell me, but I found once on the nail the image looks kind of digital. So these 'digital' pandas were created in acrylic and the stamping is Femme Fatale Maddening Whispers over that no name Color Club neon green I love. After all was dry, just a quick coat of matte!

I love these, the little peeking Pandas make me smile. I would totally do this one again!

Cheers all,
