Twinsie Tuesday: Discontinued Polish - Easter Tiger


For today's Twinsie Tuesday, we used discontinued polishes. I don't really pay close attention to which polishes are discontinued, so I struggled a little with this one at first. 

I loved Marisa's idea of using an indie brand that has gone out of business, but went back to my original plan to use the Maybelline Bleached Neons when I was inspired by a furry rainbow notebook I have for keeping track of nail art ideas, requests, etc.

Neon Rainbow Studded Faux Bunnies

Today's nail art is quick and simple. I arranged a few different shapes of neon studs on my nails to make them look loosely like bunnies; over a base of NYC Black Lace. I was pretty much just playing around, and didn't hate the outcome, so I figured I'd make it a full mani!

Lace Up or Shut Up

I did these nails forever ago, and have just now gotten around to posting them!

I had a custom glitter topper made and called it Lace Up or Shut Up. I put it over a Tiffany blue base and added some art on top. All with a matte topcoat.

Firmoo Review

Today's post is non-nails. I don't stray from nail art often, but I want to share a company with you that I have purchased from before and was very pleased with.

Parrot Polish Haul - Live Swatches & Review

Every review I've seen of Parrot Polish has been nothing but positive: from product to customer service, and everything in between! So of course I wanted to jump on the bandwagon and check them out for myself!

I picked up five polishes: one holo with extra plain glitters in it, two thermals, and two glow-in-the-dark polishes that actually glow the same color as the polish instead of the usual green/yellow.

Blue Holo Daisy Chain Nails

I'm not sure why I wanted to try Twinkled T's daisy chain nail vinyls so bad since it is really a simple flower design, but I just thought they were adorable! So when they came in, I decided to use them with Daily Hues Nail Lacquer Aria (holo) and Parrot Polish Linckia (pastel blue glow-in-the-dark creme).

The Digit-al Dozen Does Nature: Day 5 - Toucan Touch This


The time has come: it's the end of another awesome Digit-al Dozen week! It's bittersweet. DD is a very active week, but I'm always sad to see it go!

I saved my most detailed mani that I worked the hardest on to close the show!

The Digit-al Dozen Does Nature: Day 2 - Midwest Wheat Field


Today's nature mani is something I'm all too used to seeing. Around here, the highways are lined with wheat fields and corn fields; So when I saw that stamping plate BP-L007 from Born Pretty Store had a wheat image, I knew I needed it for some Midwest-appropriate nails!

Twinsie Tuesday - Soft and Feminine


Apparently words like "girly", "feminine", and "cute" scream "do a purple mani of awkwardness" to me! My last TT "cutesy and girly" mani (here) was also purple and a disasticure!

Nails Dripping in Polish

I've been really excited to use this stamping plate because it has a bunch of different polish related images on it. What's better than having polish made from polish on your polished nails?!

Today the Twinsies are doing yellow awareness manis.

Mommy's Mani Monday: Birthday Theme - Rainbow Stripes Water Marble

For today's Mommy's Mani Monday, the group did manis based on one of their kids' past birthday party themes. My daughter's first birthday theme was rainbow, so I rainbow'ed out my nails! 

I mean c'mon. I've only done rainbow nails a gajillion times (see here), and every chance I get to give something a rainbow theme, I do it. Clearly I'm a fan of the rainbows, so it's no wonder I would take this opportunity to do 'em again!
