Weekly Nail

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Supplies used...
Fresh Paint Spruce Street
Sally Hansen Parrot
Seche Vite as a top coat
Nail stickers (blogged about here // bought from here

Just a simple spin on a french manicure today. Well actually these are actually from a week or so ago. I had a really bad time painting my nails this week - like everything I tried looked crazy, in a bad way. I've got all these awesome ideas but didn't feel like I had time to do them so I'd hurry and try to do something else which is ridiculous because if you're rushing your nails will never look good. Crossing my fingers I can be a little bit more patient this coming week and do something amaaazing.

And...here's a picture of Squid because clearly there are not enough pictures of the cats on the blog lately, let alone my princess! Plus she was making cute little noises at me while I took these pictures.
Hope you're having an awesome weekend!

  9. I finally took the time to paint my nails this week because I finally had enough time due to my throat infection. You inspired me to try my nail stickers out! It's far from perfect yet, but I will practice more. Everyone complimented me hehe, so thank you for these weekly nail posts! And although this week wasn't that good for you, I still really adore this look! And the lovely Squid looks cute as always!

  15. Hey! I have a question about the nail stickers I was hoping you might have a clue on...
    I have the same ones as you, and have tried to do a colored French manicure this past week, but every time I peel off the sticker, it takes off pieces of my base coat! I've been waiting at least a day in between painting the bottom and top layers, so it's definitely not because it's wet. Maybe my base color is too thick or too thin, or I need to put on a top coat before the tip color? The base was Essie so I hope it's not a quality issue. Anyways, since you're the nail queen, if this has every happened to you/you have any ideas, I would love to hear them! xx

  16. Ooh, these are really cute! I love the shades!
