Naughty Nails Contest

This is my entry for that contest. It is based off the corset I wore for my wedding...  I hope you enjoy the mani as much as Mr. PGC enjoyed the original corset......   xoxo 

So the thumb represents the bottom of the corset with the garters attached to a stocking Complete with pink butterfly hip tatto (which I do not have).
Pointer finger is just one one booby!
Middle finger is the top of the back of the corset.
Ring finger is front view with metal closures (this corset only has laces in the back).
Pinky is the wait area as seen in the back.

I made sure to get different shots of the thumb so it can be seen from the proper angle (not upside down or sideways).

Polishes Used:
Wet n Wild - Fergie: Glowstick and Going Platinum
L.A. Colors - Art Deco: Intense Pink
Orly - French Manicure: Sheer Beauty
Nail Art: Black

80's inspired mani

80's parachute pants inspired mani.
My brother had a friend who in High School had a pair of grey stone washed blue jean looking parachute pants that had paint splattered all over them. That was the inspiration for this mani. What is your 80's mani inspiration?

I used the sugar spun technique for this. Which I have to say I am not very good at, but this is only my second attempt at doing sugar spun nails.

You can see that I traveled from my pinky towards my thumb. I started to get it to work around my middle finger.

Polishes Used: 
Base Color: 
China Glaze: Immortal
Accent colors:
Maybelline New York- Express Finish: Orange Blazes
Sally Hansen - Insta-Dry: Grape Going
Sally Hansen - Insta-Dry: Lightening

Crimson Burst mani

Crimson Burst mani

I love the way the crimson color of the red of the Velvet Lounge bursts through the copperish purple of the Ferguson Crest Syrah.

I used Velvet Lounge on four of my fingers as a base coat, and Ferguson Crest Syrah on my accent ring finger. I then used striping tape to make the burst and topped it with Ferguson Crest Syrah. Once that was most of the way I removed the striping tape. I used Velvet Lounge to tip my ring finger.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Polish Used:
Wet n Wild:  Velvet Lounge and Ferguson Crest Syrah

Renee by Julep

Renee by Julep another TIOT!!!

Julep describes this as a spring lilac creme, and I have to say I agree with this. The color coverage is awesome. Almost full coverage in one coat, with only minor touch ups needed. This makes a wonderful alternative to white as a base color if you are using any kind of purple or pastels. I do wish the color came out better, in the pictures it looks more pink. :(

Perplexing Plaid

Perplexing Plaid

I love this color combination!

This the first plaid I have attempted, and it was done completely freehand. I think next time I may try to using striping tape. 

I used colors from the Sinful Colors Haute Rebel collection.

Colors used: 
Sinful colors: Mauve, Rainstorm, and Ardoise.
Kiss Nail Art: Silver and Silver Glitter.

Monster Mash by Orly

Monster Mash by Orly

What can I say but I LOVE LOVE LOVE this polish!!!

For those of you who don't know my favorite color
 is lime green, while this may not be lime green it is still the coolest 
bright green glitter ever!!!

I was able to get full coverage in two coats, no base color
required to get this look!
I got so many compliments on this color.
I wore it for days, which never happens I didn't want to take it off!

Naked by China Glaze

Naked by China Glaze

I love this beautiful shimmery pink 
polish by China Glaze.

I got this in a box set with Seche Vite and a really pretty angel key chain that I gave to my bestie Pink Lady.

This is fast becoming one of my go to pinks!

I hope you love it as much as I do!
