PLUG YOUR BLOG please & ...meh ~ some more St. patty's day nail art


EDIT: wow! there is alot I have missed out on! Thanks for adding your nail blog to my blog roll. Keep em coming!

please leave your nail blog link in the comments, I am parking my bunz in front of the computer tomorrow and updating my blog roll..... I have tried to keep up with adding new blogs to my blog roll but i find I am still missing some.

My last 2 mani's are just meh.... both had potential but I wasn't totally happy with them.


for today's mani
2 coats of franken polish Shamrock shake
2 coats of Finger Paints A Though Art To Follow
Billie Gold along the smile line
Confetti My Favorite Martian 1 coat layered over the tips

For today's mani, this is 2 coats of an older franken polish I made called Shamrock shake..... I was trying to copy the Clinique cosmetic company's signature colour but I did not quite get it. It is still a beautiful franken polish. Here is a photo from a previous mani.....


a sunshine photo!!!!!

....also, here is those cute little beads from the dollarrama, the colour did bleed when I applied TC over them, I will try to place them into wet polish as opposed to using a top coat sandwich to adhere them to my nails. I wanted to do all my nails with these cute beads but I opted for something more flashy. I wanted to see how long they would hang on and they lasted through the day, so I imagine they are like rhinestones or any other dimensional nail art pieces..... It did not take as long as I imagined to add these to my nails and I will likely try this again sometime soon.


......and I was wrong about my post yesterday, this was 2 coats of the Sinful Colors Call You Later glitter, here is a photo of it in the sun, just for fun.

Here is another nail art look I did, The base is Icing Sour Apple, a shimmery lite apple green with slight golden iridescence, I added  Sally Hansen XW in Emerald City to the tips of my nails in a reverse french curve - without the curved french tips guides - I just bought some regular french tip nail guides and misplaced them......

I added hexagon glitter in gold and green, following the curve of my nails. I love how this turned out but destroyed this mani before I could take quality pictures of it. I have so many of these hexagon craft glitters in different colours, they do go a long way in nail art. I adhered them with clear polish - which dried way to fast. i need to find a crappy slow drying clear nail polish for this type of thing.

It looked better IRL


anyhoo - back to today's mani. I started with 2 coats of a franken I made Shamrock shake, then added 2 coats of Finger Paints A Though Art To Follow which is a fabulous dark swampy green free hand across the tips of my nails. I traced the line with a gold foil polish from Billie but covered it up with Confetti My Favorite Martian. I didn't really like this mani but the confetti polish saved it.  I love that green glass flecked polish.

L - 2 coats of Finger Paints Tough Art To Follow - R - 1 coat

All these greens are so gorgeous to me. Greens are my favorite to wear on my nails! Love all the wonderful manicures. Your franken is lovely. Does look like the Clinque color.

Ah, so cool of you to give bloggers this chance! Your patience with the little beads amazes me, I could never do that. I love these green manis! I love greens, they outnumber other colours in my collection like mad. I can't help it! I stalked your blogroll (I love looking because I always find new blogs that way!) and it would be super cool if you would add us (I have a blog with another girl) to it!

You are so ambitious to put those little gold balls on your nails for only a day of wear! I couldn't make a straight line with them or have patience! Lovely mani!

Gorgeous! I'm especially liking the beads on your pinkie. They are a string of beads right? Please don't tell me that they are individual, because you'll have me ruining my eyesight trying to do the same, lol!

Deez Nailz ~ where the CANADIAN Bloggers at ? said...

whew! In the last 24 hours I have added 47 nail blogs to my blog-roll...... and I still have a few more to add.

I have added the above nail blogs to my blog roll and will be scouring around the interwebz for any more that I have missed!

I have also made a post with links to all the blogs I have recently added that I will post this evening, most are newer, so it will be another opportunity for people to check out some new-ish blogs♥
