#14 I Did It!!


April Showers Bring May Flowers 
hosted by: Polished Prisms

Wow! The last couple weeks have been insane! I think I'm back to normal, still trying to figure out what normal for the summer is going to be! I actually gained a follower during my absence so that's pretty darn cool! I should be back to more regular posts, which is about 3x/wk for me.

For today I have the last challenge for ASBMF! I've wanted to experiment with stamping since probably February, when I first started getting obsessed with polish. I've tried it a couple times on paper and it didn't work out so well. I've been reading more about it and since I don't have 'special stamping polish' I searched on using other polish. You need thick laquer for it to work so I brought out a few of my older bottles and tested them to see if they would work. The best was Orly: Happily Ever Aver and so now I give you my first ever stamping manicure! Yay!





The Red flower is a Dahlia and the Yellow flower is from the Okra plant. I thought it was really pretty so I added it :) 

So what do you think? I think I did pretty good. The pinky was my first one and then I had trouble with getting my scraper stuck in the images on either side so I changed designs. I also added a silver star to my ring finger. I need some practice placing my designs but I'm happy with it. 

Now that I'm done with the Spring Challenge I'm going to check out what the other ladies did :)

I've has so much fun doing this challenge and I can't believe it's almost over! Time for me to find another challenge. :) I've never done this before so it took a couple tries. I also tried doing this from tissue paper which didn't work. :( I do like the final result though!! Scroll down to see!

#12 Spring Flowers

I absolutely Love Lilies so I tried to paint them on my nails. It didn't come out so well but I love the Orange one! Wish I stayed with Tiger Lilies on all my nails.




I wonder what the other ladies are doing :)

My Own Indian Ocean


I have something very exciting for you today! (well, at least it's exciting for me!) One of the very first blogs I started following is The PolishAholic and she posted a polish that I absolutely love but unfortunately when I looked it up it was sold out. :( I was looking at it again today and thought I might be able to similarly replicate it. I'm extremely happy with it!

Here is My Own Indian Ocean :)

Sparkly Ombre

This stemmed from the Rockin' Robin Mani. It's a kind of skittle ombre. I'm glad I have these two blues. I love this shade. I'm also loving 'My Boyfriend Scales Walls' because it's white but the slight hint of grey makes it more subtle.
