Alabaster Nail Art with Born Pretty Water Decals

Press Sample

So I randomly started a tradition 2 years ago of doing anniversary nails for my parents! I did their 35th anniversary and 36th anniversary and, well, today is their 37th anniversary! Isn't that crazy?! Congrats to my parents! I looked up the traditional gift and it's alabaster! My parents really don't want stuff, so I'm sticking with a manicure and a card! (And I took them out to dinner last night!)

Pusheen Box Fall 2017 Unboxing

Born Pretty Autumnal Floral Water Decals

Hope you enjoy the last day of the weekend. I'm quickly posting this as I'll be heading to some farms in a few hours for pumpkins, apple cider doughnuts, and fun. So it's appropriate that I have on this pretty orange! I actually took out all my fall and Halloween polishes, and I've got to say, I used about 90% of them! So I'm proud of that!

Acorn Nail Art: Reverse Stamping with Girly Bits over Blush Lacquer

Press Sample

Hi all! Sorry for the late post today, but it happens! I actually JUST took this mani off today and it was so cute! So many people stopped to look at my hand! I just love autumn and I love the images that are associated with the season. I knew I had to do this acorn image!

Acorn Nail Art:  Reverse Stamping with Girly Bits over Blush Lacquer

I started with a base of Blush Lacquer Nerida Singer, which I bought last April at Polish Con. I needed three coats for opaqueness. Holy cow, I LOVE THIS COLOR!!

Then I grabbed 3 of the new Girly Bits fall cremes, and went to town! I used the Lina Autumn 01 plate for the acorn image and stamped with Stump Up the Jam. I filled in the top of the acorns with Butternut Leave Me and filled in the bottom with Acornucopia. I'm so cheesy but it was the perfect fit! Then I matte it, and I loved it! These Girly Bits cremes are amazing! I'll be back with a lot more art and proper swatches later.

I loved this look shiny also, but it was so shiny that it was difficult to photograph! The top coat is Girly Bits What A Rush, which dries super fast!

You can find the entire Girly Bits creme set HERE. The ten piece collection retails for $118 USD (just under $12 each) or you can grab them individually (same price). I have many more manicures planned but I've been testing these as stampers and one coaters and they are both!
