I haven’t shown you the plate specifically yet, though, so I’ve done another 2 manicures using the plate to show you the pretty nail art you can do! (more…)

Painted Fingertips | Ice Cream Stamping over Silly Bee's Chickadees - Steph's Sugar Plum Suite

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme is food and while I considered doing something similar to this cute fruit print, I just didn’t feel all that inspired. Then, once I put Silly Bee’s Chickadees Steph’s Sugar Plum Suite on my nails, it reminded me so much of a delicious milkshake that I knew it would be the perfect base for a tasty ice cream manicure.
