Work friendly Pink Wednesday

Most people have jobs, I hope at least, and if you have a job like I do that would be awkward wearing a flashy polish to sometimes it can be hard to be unique and work friendly. Well this is a gradiant and stamped mani I wore to work and while it was noticed by the girls, the men (namely my boss) said nothing about it.
Started with 2 coats of Sally Hansen's Diamond
Then sponged on Sally Hansen's Pink Promise til it really showed on the tips.

Then i stamped on a really simple flower design with Konad's Special White.

It was cute, but by no means simple!

Pink Wednesday - Cracked!

This is 3 coats of Sally Hansen's Celeb City with China Glazes Pink Crackle on top. It is cute and edgy.

Just another little tidbit, since I have been posting for awhile I figured a little disclaimer would be good. :D I normally only use the cheepest polishes I can get, unless I REALLY want a color or they are a gift. Sally Hansen has a lot of great colors even though they are cheep polishes, so don't be afraid of cheep. If worst comes to worse and you buy one you hate, at least you did not spend a bunch of money on it. :D

All Tied up or Little multi-colored vests

These came out just so cute. They are the colors of my planned wedding. The green is for my boyfriend, whose favorite color is green. I even let him pick this one out. And the pink is for me. I have a love hate relationship with the color. :p So I tied them together with a stamp off my master plate. It is very very cute and even though it turned out looking like little vests, I still love it. :)

Dragon flies.

These are just simple nail stickers, but I love how they turned out on this purple by Color Club.

i even wore this design for work, and because I did not go all out on the design over the color, they did not draw unwanted attention for being unprofessional.

Subtle Tape Mani

These 2 colors work together in a subtle way. I had to take the picture outside, otherwise you would have a hard time seeing the line between them. The colors are both Zoya, Crystal and Apple.

Smells like Blueberries!

This is actually scented polish from Revlon call "Not so Blueberry" But it has a VERY strong smell while applying it. Stamped on top with some more new plates from MoonDancerJen (ty future sister-in-law!)

Short nail designs

My cousin wanted to try out the stamping with me when I took my polish case up to West Virgina for vacation. She has short nails, but this shows you do not need long ones to do a great design!
My cousin's nails. The base is Steel her Heart by Sally Hansen, (and it only needed one coat!) stamped with Konad's Special White. Designs are from master plate A.

This is my design. I am actually not too pleased with how it turned out and I blame the Konad Special Red Stamping polish. I originally wanted to do this design on black, which would not work because the special polish was so sheer, and then it kind of bled when I stamped it onto this pearl color, not to mention the staining when taking it off. Any ideas on how to make this color stamp better?

A different stamp for each finger.

These are the first designs I did when I got my master plate for my birthday. I just did a sampling of a bunch of different designs, so there are 10 images! :D

First Pink Wednesday in awhile

This is done with Sally Hansen's Rockstar and with China Glaze Black Crackle over top. Hopefully Pink Wednesday can stand a little black. :D These definitely make up for not having badass nails a few weeks ago.

It's not Easy being green!

I have green themed nails for today! (And an ond one from when I was unable to post XD)
I call these my Green nails. lol I really love how they turned out. Done with Zoya Apple as the base stamped with Sally Hansen's Night Flight. 

Night Flight looks like a black in the bottle, but it comes out more like a midnight blue, and when stamping it has a little sheer, so it gets hints of the color it is stamped on. Like here it looks more green. 

Snakeskin nails! Zoya's Veruschka and Konad Special black stamping polish. I also used Hard Candy's matte top coat.

Green nails are fun, but definately draw attention more than alot of other colors. I just started work, and for sure will not be going in with green nails.

Sorry guys. No I am still alive. Blogger refused to let me log in for about 2 weeks, BUT the good news is that I have a bunch of stuff to post. :D So without further delay. *drum roll*

All of these were done with stamping. The first three are from konad plates and the last is from a mater plate I got for my birthday. There will be more to come shortly as I am able to upload them and post. :D
