Gray Jelly Sandwich with OPI My Pointe Exactly

Zoya Dove, China Glaze Liquid Crystal, OPI My Pointe Exactly 

Hi guys!  I am trying to work on using some of my untrieds, so I came up with this jelly sandwich.  I used one coat of Zoya Dove as my base, then did one coat of China Glaze Liquid Crystal, and finished with 2 coats of OPI My Pointe Exactly.  I think I will try out another gray jelly sandwich soon!

Snake Skin Stamping with MASH Plates

Hey guys! Today I have another mani using my MASH Stamping Plates. Also, as a preface, I tried something different for this post... I took the photos and am posting with my iPhone. I thought this would be easier since I could type up the post and upload it from my phone when I got to a cafe with WiFi rather than lugging my 17" laptop into the city with me. I hope the quality looks ok. In actuality my phone camera has the same megapixels as my real camera! Anyway, let me know what you think of this. Good photos are one of the most important things to me, so if they are not up to par I will switch back to my camera.

For the base color of this mani I used 2 coats of OPI Number One Nemesis. I stamped using the MASH plate #43, and my black MASH Nail Art Polish. I am really loving these MASH stamping polishes, guys! I under estimated how much easier stamping can be when you use them instead of regular polishes. Especially for the black and white.

That's about it for the info part... Don't forget to let me know how you think the photos turned out! (Edit: The last photo is intentionally blurred to show the sparkle!)

Attempting to Get Back To Blogging, plus A Water Marble

 China Glaze Gaga For Green, China Glaze Aquadelic, and OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys

Hello my lovely readers!  A big THANK YOU to all of you who have been sticking around during my transition period.  I am here in Stockholm now, we arrived about 2 weeks ago.  Unfortunately, I don't have regular access to the internet at the house where we are staying.  I can get online at Mr. Sparkles' university, but that is about an hour commute from where we reside.  Either way, I am going to make an attempt to get back into semi-regular posting.  I hope I'm able to keep up the way I want to.  If not, we expect to have more regular internet access within the next month or two.  So, onto the nails!

This is a marble I did quite a while ago actually.  I'm not sure why I never posted it, because I really liked how it came out!  I used China Glaze Gaga For Green, China Glaze Aquadelic, and OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys.  My favorite finger is actually the index finger, even though it didn't get much of the blue.  Hope you guys like it!
