Blue Gradient/Ombre Recreation

So for this weeks design I once again decided to recreate a look form one of my favorite nail bloggers Mixed Mama. She recently posted this gorgeous blue gradient manicure and when I saw it I knew this the opportunity for me get to use my NYC East Village polish again as my first experience with it had me on the outs with it. Learn how to create color gradients/ombre here.

For my based color I used NYC East Village. Gorgeous color but very thin formula, I had to use 3 coats of this polish to get it to resemble the color in the bottle. To create the gradient I used L.A. colors Color Craze in Wired (middle color) and Pure Ice All Night Long (tip). I topped it off with one of my favorite glitter polish NYC Starry Silver Glitter.

Jamaica Day Feb 22 2013

So today is Jamaica Day!!!!!!!! Big up all di Yardie dem. Unfortunately I had too much going on this week to redo my nails since the last design (here). So I'm featuring an old design that I was rocking during the Track and Field Events of last years Olympics.

Sticky Icky

Now this blog is not necessarily a polish review blog, its more of a "Hey this what I'm wearing on my nails" blog. But should the need arise for me to say a few words about a particular product I will do so. With that said let me get right into it.

My First Time :)

So I finally ordered my Konad Stamping tool and my bestie got me my first set of stamping plate (NEW MASH Set of 25 Nail Art Nailart Polish Stamp Stamping Manicure Image Plates 26-50 Accessories Set Kit). As excited I was I must say I was a bit overwhelmed with all the designs available, so much so that I was drawing blanks when it came to my first design. After I overcame my initial excitement and brain farts I hopped over to Mixed Mamma to be inspired. I decided to recreate one of her many stamping design and this is my result. 

Not Bad for my first attempt
You can definitely tell I had a rough start but with practice i'll get better.

V- Day Look

So for my V-Day look I decided to detour from the red, white, and hearts and opted for red, pink and bling.
