My Sticker Collection

This post is just to show you all the stickers I have (and rarely use lol). If there are any you want to see me use in a design, say so in a comment!

ALL of these I got at dollarstores :)


























Sorry this photo is in 2 halves, but that's all of them. More close ups below:

































Sorry for the picture heavy post, I hope this loads okay for all of you!

Pink Camouflage Nails

So this turned out to be more of a pink zebra stripe, mostly because I used a zebra stamp. I saw this design in a video on Youtube (for the life of me I can't remember which nail guru uploaded it) and I had to try it for myself. First of all, she did light pink as the base, then medium splotches and dark pink stripes, and she used a plate I don't have for the camo-looking stripes rather than zebra-looking stripes.














Supplies:

SH Complete Salon Manicure in Frutti Petutti, Tivoli (no name) and Wet N Wild (no name)

Base and top coats pictured below.














Stamp was from Bundle Monster plate 223














So I started off with the dark pink (sorry no photos for this part!) and once it dried, I used the middle pink and just with the polish brush it came with, made uneven splotches like paint splatters, a few on each nail. They're hard to see in the finished design though :( And then I did the stamp with the lightest pink.

Pink Crackle French Tip

This manicure I had a lot of fun with; I'm loving the look of a colored french tip with crackle over top of just the tip. In this case, the base color is all-over and only the crackle makes the sideways french tip.














Supplies I used:

-Essie, Sand Tropez
-Cherimoya 2012 Crackle, ?
-Art Deco, black
-Art Deco, pink glitter














I separated the crackle from the rest of the base color with a black line and added a pink glitter to the line.

The pictures are kinda blurry, I know...














My fingers look really wonky in this picture lol

Peach with Gold Stamp & Glitter

This manicure is very subtle, but gorgeous, IMO. I wore it for a long time before it got so chipped I was forced to remove it.














Sorry about the photos, but the gold stamp (a flower pattern, if you can't tell) didn't pick up on my camera; it isn't this subtle in real life, you can tell its flowers.














The stamp I used, from Bundle Monster, I don't remember which plate lol














Revlon Peachy, by itself. I don't have a photo of the stamping polish, but I used Sally Hansen complete salon manicure in Gilty Pleasure.














After the stamp, I added these loose, hexagonal gold glitters to the center of a few flowers on each nail.

Striking Gold

No nail art for this week, but I wanted to show off this pretty polish!
















It's kind of bronze and gold at the same time, gorgeous! To be honest, at first I didn't like it on my skin tone but after wearing it for a day or two I just kept staring, it's so shiny and awesome :)
