I’m Plum Tuckered Out!

This design is done with Gelish From Rodeo to Rodeo Drive topped in an ombre style with Plum Tuckered Out. Both of these colors are from the Urban Cowgirl Collection.

I stamped using plate BPL003 from the Born Pretty Store, first with silver stamping polish, then black.

More nail art… finally!

It’s been too long in between nail art posts!  Here’s my last hurrah for winter-ish nail art:

The base color is Gelish Dancer, Prancer Cranberry Vixen, and the chevrons are Gelish With his Red So Bright, both from the Gelish Winter Reds 2013/2014 Collection.  The charm is from the Born Pretty Store.

You can’t see it in the photo, but I used With his Red So Bright only on my thumbs, and it is a gorgeous, sparkly red.  It would be perfect any time of year, not just winter!

Stay tuned for a review of these embellishments soon!

This snazzy combination is Gelish Let’s Hit the Bunny Slopes (gray) and Race You to the Bottom (teal).  I love how the colors in each Gelish collection mesh well together, and these colors are no exception.  The photo doesn’t do justice to Race You to the Bottom – it’s a stunner in person!

My nail art was published again!

A couple months ago I submitted some nail art photos to Nail Art Gallery Magazine, and it was accepted and published in the September issue!  Check out pages 13, 53, and 61.

Blackboard Nails

For these nails I used Gelish Black Shadow, and stamped on them with white Konad special stamping polish and Bundle monster stamping plates 311, 401, 409 and 411. On some of the nails I used a 2 coats of Gelish A Pinch of Pepper, although the black glitter is not visible.  Finally, to give the nails the “blackboard” look, I used Gelish Matte Top it Off.
