Teal Leopard Spots

It's a teal-y spotty leopard kinda day.  A quick brain squirt I had.  Got inspiration from a girls blouse I saw on the train ride home.  I hope you like what I came up with.

I used piCture pOlish PMT on index and pinkie.  China Glaze Pelican Grey on middle and ring.  The using Konad plate m57, I filled in the leopard spots with OPI Fly.

Strawberries & Pretty Bows using Stamp Decals

Hi Everyone,

Two weeks ago, me and my little family went to the Yarra Valley Strawberry Festival in Lilydale.  I love strawberries, especially in a smoothie or for breakfast on Yoghurt with Honey and Cinnamon, yum.  I came across this event through Facebook and it was actually more popular than what I was expecting.  It was so popular they ran out of Strawberries!

For this design I used a technique which I've never tried before.  I created my own stamp decals.  I've seen so many others do this, and I wanted to give it a go myself.  I'm glad I made more than what I needed because it didn't quite go to plan as I had hoped.  Let's just say it took me a couple goes before I had a result I thought was ok.  How do they make it look so easy on YouTube!?!?  it might take me a bit more practice, but it was definitely fun trying something new.

For this manicure I've used OPI Kiss Me On The Tulips.  On my ring finger I've got piCture pOlish Fairy Floss (there was plenty of that at the festival!).  For the stamp decal itself, it's from Pueen82, using Konad Black and my Squishy Stampers from UberChic.  I've filled in the strawberries with OPI Coca-Cola Red and the bows with Kiss Me On The Tulips.  Poshé Top Coat to seal it in and make is shine.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.  See you next time.

Hello Everyone! 

Today isn't just any other day, it's the one year anniversary me and mr got married! So hope you have an amazing day too.  

For this I started with a gradient using OPI Alpine Snow and OPI Fly. The stamp used was Pueen-99, with Konad Black.  I finished with Poshé fast drying Top Coat.

Tiger Stripes

Recently I brought some Born Pretty round plates to bring my collection up to date.  And as soon as I saw this image on plate BP-16, I just knew what kind of design I wanted to create. Love it when an image just jumps out at you.

I started with a white base OPI Alpine snow.  Then created a trio-colour vertical stripe gradient.  From the middle outwards started with OPI Alpine Snow, then OPI Where Did Suzi's Man-Go? and OPI On the Same Paige. I used Born Pretty Stamping Plate BP-16 with Konad Black and topped it off with Poshé top coat.

I don't think i'm alone here when I say that I love cats, and that includes the big cats too.  
At home we have two Burmese boys who keep us very busy, who I love to bits. 
Meet Loui and Chester.
