Pink Flowers & Pearls

Well last night, I decided to do a subtle male mani, lol. What I mean, is a mani that won't stand out to much to men, since I have a big dealer meeting this morning, I didn't want to do anything too crazy but still fun.

For this I used, a base of Essie Merino Cool, Pure Ice Busted over top & then did the stamping with Pure Ice Outrageous.

This was my final mani :)


I started with 1 coat of Merino Cool
added 1 coat of Busted


Then stamped with Outrageous



and then, because they were sitting next me, I added some ivory pearls in the center of the flowers, on my ring fingers.

  13. Hi :) I was wondering if you had a Tumblr, because I saw that someone had reblogged your mani today, and it didn't look like your site! They made it seem like they themselves had done the manicure. This is the link:

  20. Gorgeous! I love all the layers of polish - you are teaching me so much!! I layered Zoya Dove with Not Like The Movies and then Shattered over top - it was gorgeous - I left it on 2 days instead of just one :-) I was proud of myself for not peeling it off haha
    My list is growing daily...I still have resisted konad & 3-D art...but you make it harder and harder to resist with all of these gorgeous gorgeous manis!

  21. It's so funny that that's a 'subtle male mani' for you... if I was a guy, I'd flip out when I saw your nails: I'd be thinking, 'what on earth are those white things on her nails? Are they... are they growths of some description!?' all while pretending to listen to what you're talking about XD

    Regardless, as a female, I love it. The layering is a cool idea, something I need to try!

  22. Thanks you two!

    Crystal, oh trust me, it won't be long till you need to Konad, lol. Once you start, you'll be in trouble!

    Leona, haha, well I mainly meant the colors. I just didn't want to wear a neon, lol.

  23. All of these are great!!
    Can you please show how you did the floral design on the last pics or something like the right hand pic on your blog banner

    Can you specify the brand and color name for the silver glitter polish?

    Appreciate it!! You're like the Nail Queen! I love you!
