This one is for you Mel!!!

Morning & HAPPY FRIDAY! While reading through my comments I noticed a mani request from Mel, and since I didn't have a mani in mind already, I decided to give it a go. She asked for something in pink and brown, and here is what I did. Oh and Mel, feel special, I must confess that Jack, my husband, designed the mani for you, lol. He asked what I was looking for, while standing in front of my stash, and I told him your request. Well, he went right to work, haha. Not only did he choose the colors, but also the image. So we both hope you like it!

I started with 2 coats of OPI You Don't Know Jacques!

Then using China Glaze Admire & my Mash plate M63, I ended up with this :)





PS: If you have sent me an email, and I haven't responded yet, I am soooooo sorry. I still have a few hundred to go through and hope to be caught up soon. I promise I will get back to you. It was just that while I was going through my bad time, I didn't open my email at all, and now that I have, it's a tad full.

  2. I think it is so so sweet that your husband understands your polish addiction and is a total enabler :) My hubby could use some tips from him.

    Your nails look amazing! (as usual)

  19. i LOVE your blog! i was wondering if you would be willing to do a "tips and tricks" section for just stamping. i've been at it for a bit and they look alright, good but not as good as yours! lol! any advice would be great on the subject! :)

    1. I'm new to stamping and I have seen a number of sites and videos that say that special polish is not required, but I find that using regular polish BARELY shows up on my nail.... I think the above style posted looks *fantastic*, but I'm not getting results that even remotely look this good. I know it takes practice, but it just seems like the polish doesn't want to show up :( Makes me sad....

I never would have even thought to try that combo, but it looks SO good! Nice work! And always love to hear about the supportive hubbies in the mix! =)

  25. I love the colours! That stamp almost reminds me of the patterns you see in an oil slick too!

  26. That is so gorgeous! I have always loved pink and brown together (turquoise and brown is ah-mazing too, give it a try sometime!), and the way the swirls are in this, it reminds me of Neopolitan ice cream. Yum. Well done, both of you!

  27. I am just going to pretend that I sent you the email asking you for this mani because Mel is what I go by and I absofreakinglutly LOVE what your hubs put together for me. ;)

  28. It is appropriate time to make a few plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I've learn this publish and if I could I desire to suggest you some attention-grabbing things or advice.
