Herringbone

This design is the kind of design you do when you’re not sure what to put over a base.
I was debating on how to cover Superchic Lacquer’s 40 Winks, and this design
I’d seen before (over other colors) popped into my mind.
It also reminds me of the herringbone technique I use when making earrings:

(Yes, I made those, and no, they aren’t for sale… yet!
There’s so much to do before even considering selling earrings, but someday,
they will be on sale πŸ˜‰ )

Hot Air Balloon!

A couple of weeks ago, some friends went to see a #hotAirBalloon show in New Jersey. I didn’t come along but definitely used the photos they showed me as inspiration for this design!
I’m using twinkled_t’s 🌈 rainbow stamping polish collection and they are a joy to work with! The colors are very pigmented, opaque and hella neon!

Sunflower over Crayola Nails

I may be the 1 out of 20 people that can’t wait for #fall to start. It’s not that summer isn’t enjoyable, it just feels like I dress better for any other season of the year. Ha ha! Okay, enough with the #weatherRant. This look combines the cheerful colors of summer in the #🌻s with the darker much anticipated (sorry! πŸ˜‚) fall colors.
I’m using sally hansen’s Crayola collaboration polish VividViolet508 as a base
and Twinkled_t’s 🌈 rainbow stamping polish in yellow and orange because they are pigmented enough to cover the purple without problems. For the center of the flowers, I’m using @Revlon’s #revlonperfumerie polish #ChocolateTruffle115 which smells delicious! πŸ˜‹
