♫ What more can I say?!?!?!?♫ *Jay Z voice*

I LOVE this mirror metallic.  love, love, love, love, love.

I purchased it with the specific intent to stamp it over black!   It was everything I hoped for.  Everything I dreamed it would be.

Coupled with my new Bundle Monster Plate (BM- 213), I couldn’t be more pleased.

Butterflies

The Butterfly and I hung out. Smile Of COURSE we did our nails…and practiced more stamping! And this stamping thing definitely takes practice.

She chose a really pretty blue: OPI – “What’s With The Cattitude”

I finally settled on a color to match my dress for the party I attended later that evening. (The Butterfly picked out my shoes).

OPI – “Black Onyx”

Santa’s Belt

Cutest. design. ever. 
As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to try it. 

So, I used my favorite… OPI “I’m Not Really A Waitress”… striped OPI “Black Onyx across and made a “Glitter Hologram” buckle….

Voila! Santa’s belt.

I absolutely love this design. So fun! Really may work for any time of the year – if you’re a diva…. it’s all in the context.  Because it’s almost December 25th, we’ll just say this is holiday nail art.  Winking smile

#period.

The actual size of my nailbed, I realize, just doesn’t have THAT much space. 

I have a difficult time appreciating extensive nail art with 3D ornamentry (lol, I KNOW it’s not a word – yeah, yeah, ornamentation). 

Simply because of the limited area on a fingernail, visually digesting a bunch of rhinestones and feathers, numbers and letters, all at once,  is just way too overwhelming for my personal taste…. and thus was born:

lol. 

It was such a statement, I just couldn’t add more.  and I love it.

Polka Dot “Stripes”

IMG_2223

….. I either needed more soothing….

…or maybe I really am just addicted. Winking smile

Now that my nails are short- I mean, short, short- they are so much FUN! So much fun to change – frequently.  Playing around with my new acrylic paint and dotting tool, I came up with:

FUN! 

Playful without being overly distracting.  Designed but not over-cluttered. 
And E-A-S-Y as pie. 

My tools: 

OPI “Black Onyx” in all its sleek beauty
Dotting art tool
white, pink & orange acrylic paint
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I love this little design.  Makes me smile every time I look down at my hands.  I’m definitely doing more polka dots! soon!
