Hi everyone!

It has been so hot and humid the past couple of days here – something I never thought I’d be saying about Minnesota before I moved here! It looks like it might rain today so I’m hoping it’ll cool down just a little.

Today I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, plate BP-L052, to share with you. Before I start showing you any of the nail art (and let me tell you right now that both looks I did are pretty great and you should at least look at this whole post!), a note about the plate itself. When I received this plate, several of the images were different than those shown on the site. Here is my photograph of the plate (excuse the reflections): (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Alpha Lupi and Gamma Lupi

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I missed last Wednesday because I was out of town at a conference and just couldn’t find the time to write up a post, but I’m back with a gloriously dark marble. A few weeks ago I decided to test out a few of my Supermoon polishes in a marble, and was pleasantly surprised to discover that they marbled perfectly. After that, when I recently purchased a few new Supermoons, a marble was the first thing I tried! Again, they worked to perfection! (more…)

Snakeskin – The Digital Dozen does Rainforests

Painted Fingertips | Stamped Snakeskin

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of of the Digital Dozen does Rainforests! The rainforest is beautiful, but it can be dangerous as well – watch out for snakes! I had actually done this snakeskin stamping a couple of weeks ago and just hadn’t gotten around to posting it; I realised at the start of this week that it was perfect for the theme! (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! It’s always fun to discover new polishes that marble. I’ve been meaning to use some of my Supermoon polishes from the I Am Cannibal collection in a water marble ever since I did this quick experiment with them a few weeks ago: (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, as usual with two different nail art looks. These are really pretty so make sure you click through and scroll down to see both of them! Both were created with plate Floral BPX-L018. This plate even has ‘floral’ in its name, but it actually consists mostly of leafy images. It will be an amazing plate to use for autumn manicures, but I’ve managed to create 2 looks that are more springy for today. (more…)

Hi everyone!

I was recently approached by Konifer Wooden Watches to review one of their watches and share it with you. I liked some of the options I saw on the website, so I decided to give one a try. Aside from watches, you can also get sunglasses and even wooden rings on the site. Konifer is based in Canada and advertises a 5 year warranty on all watches. They also promise to plant a tree for every purchase made, which is great! (more…)

Hi everyone!

I’m so glad it’s Spring! Even though it can still be chilly here and we’ve been having quite a few overcast days, I love that it’s starting to warm up enough to be outdoors again. I’ve always loved Summer, so I can’t wait for it to warm up even more!

Today I have some silver stamping to show you, reminiscent of an optical illusion. (more…)
