Pink Wednesday: Sugar Coat

It's that day again!  I have a shade of nudey-pink I haven't used before to share.  Sugar Coat is a sheer pink that I loved after seeing it on Obsessive Cosmetic Hoarders Unite.  As you will see, it didn't apply for me as well as it did for her.  But I will tame this beast!  Then I will love it forever and pet it and... wear it, of course.  Until then, I'll just pretend I don't see those streaks.

Anywho, a picture.

Nail Stickers

The mani I've been wearing for the past few days is my first foray into using nail stickers.  I've had these for a while, but I've been waiting to use them.  For what, I'm not sure.  Anyway, It's been a while since I've done an orange mani, and the stickers worked well with the color.

Peeenk Wednesday

It's Pink Wednesday again, and there's glitter all over the place.  This week, I have a half-moon tape mani done with a Sally Girl glitter polish that wasn't dense enough for the look and some loose glitter from Sweet Libertine that picked up the slack.  For some reason, the glitter is the one Sally Girl Polish I have that has a name.  The loose glitter did its usual thing and didn't stick everywhere I wanted it and stuck in some places I didn't.

Contest Entry. For Real this Time.

After asking around, I've decided to go with the ladybug for Enamel Girl's stamping contest.  I love the ladybug mani, and if it weren't for the fact that one of my nails is splitting (again), I'd keep it on for much longer.  As it is, I'll just save it for another time.

Contest Entry. Or not.

Today I have a mani that I was going to enter into a contest, but now I may end up undoing every nail but one and redoing it as a non-skittles mani.  I'm just not excited about the way these go together.  It's for a spring-themed contest held by Enamel Girl.  I think things would have gone better if I had more solid stamps as opposed to outlines.  Take a look, and please vote in the poll below and help me make up my mind.

Pink Wednesday: Baby's First Dry Marble

Happy Pink Wednesday and Pi Day , folks.  I have a dry marble for you done with a polish I like.  A.  Lot.  Candy-licious really is quite a delicious color.  There's not much to say about it, so time for a photo.

St. Patrick's Skittles

First, I'd like to point out some new links up above.  There's my current polish list and a list of polishes I've successfully used for stamping for anyone wanting to try stamping but not sure about polish.  Some of them have links if I've posted pictures to the blog.  Now on to the good stuff.

Because I'm lazy brilliant, this collection of St. Patrick's day mani ideas comes in the form of one skittles mani.  I'm quite happy with them, even the simpler ones because they have their own understated qualities.  Let me show you what I mean.

Pink Wednesday: More Rio

Last Wednesday's post left me feeling a little... meh.  But I do like the idea of documenting my fails for future reference, so there's that.  Today's mani is better.  I stamped down near my cuticle, which is new for me, and I like the way it came out.  Too bad I wasn't a fan of any of the photos.  (It's always something.)
