CNT Pick N' Mix ~ Brushstroke & Favorite Brand!

Hello Dahlings!
 
This week da Tarts are showing off Brushstroke manis & Fav Brands!
So I pondered whether to show a logo of a fav brand of something or
just go with the obvious of using my fav brand of polish...
 
 
Duh!
 
 I went with a fan brush to stroke da colors across may nails.
This pic has a coat of Seche Vite to add some slimy goodness,
oh I mean gloss to da mani.
Kind looks like zombie nails, don't it?
There's a very good reason for this...
 
plus da Essence Fan brush I used
 
 This is 3 yummilicious coats of Walker Bait
It's a wee bit sheer compared to da other 3 in this collex,
but da glitter & rainbows are worth it!
 
These are my nails pre-SV. 
These polishes are listed as textured,
but it's a very light texture so as to not blow out da rainbows.
So if you've thought textured polish is too rough,
you might enjoy these!
 
Tami is having a SALE right now!
Spend $15+ & put NOV25 in da coupon code box at checkout
& save 25% on da Core Holos & da holiday collections
PLUS a bunch of da prototypes & da Halloweens collex are on
DISCOUNTED LAST CHANCE, so you can save even MORE on them...
before they go bye-bye.

>^. .^<
 
 I don't know what dis dead thing is...
 
...but I have dis uncontrollable urge to chew on it!
Paw got Ciri a sheep skin from Ikea.
After these pics, Ciri refuse to even step on it
& the other cats avoid it too. Go figure!
 
Thanks for stopping by

CNT 52 week Pn'M ~ Book & Brown

Hello Dahlings!
 
I told you'd I get my Tart's book/brown mani done this week.
Too bad I almost, but not quite, epically failed at it.
 
 I decide to try to stamp a water marbled image
like ones often founds inside the covers
of a well bound hardback book.
I said I tried!
My stamping needs uber practice. Blerg.
 
 This is a swatch pic of The Devil Wears Polish
I stamped using TDWP Chocolate Cupcake & Vivid plate VL 009.
VL 009 is currently not available.
In my defense, I did a test drive using a new purple plastic scraper
that I got as a bonus
for buying the 2 newest Bundle Monsters plate sets,
the beach set & the 2nd fan designed set.
I may or may not have gotten better results
had I used the black scraper
that came with the Vivid squishy stamper.
 
>^. .^<
 
Dem claws is so sad I can't bears to look at dem!
 
Thanks for stopping by!
Now please go clean your eyeballs
by checking out da great nails
done by da other Tarts.

Autumn Braided mani feat. The Devil Wears Polish

Hello Dahlings!
 
Today's mani is from da vault.
I did this one back in late September
& then had to stash it away in favor of Halloween nails.
 
 I opted for one full braid accent nail
with funky French braid tips on da rest.
 
 Da line up ~ The Devil Wears Polish
Pumpkin Carving, Hay Ride & Equinox
All 3 were part of da Fall 2014 collex
& Equinox is now in da Core Holo Line
 
 Pumpkin Carving is not only a gorgeous metallic holo...
 
 ...it's also a multi chrome that shifts bronze, copper & gold!
 
  
 A sun pic cuz you know...it's a holo.
 
>^. .^<

Ghoul & Da Gang!

Hello Dahlings!
 
I have another Halloweenesque mani for y'all today!
 
 I really enjoyed both da doing & da wearing of this design!
 
Nabi GITD Raspberry 19, L. Blue 20, L. Teal 11 & White 09;
& Konad Black for da stamping
 
 2 yummilicious buttery coats of White Choco Raspberry Swirl
Why would I use the polish for a white base coat,
knowing that I'd be covering it up?
Cuz I was already wearing it from da swatchorama
I had done earlier that day.
It was easier to keep it on
than to re-do my base color with a white crème.
 
 I splodged on da 4 gitds.
I don't know why my fingers & palm are infocus
& my nails aren't?
 
Yep! They glow just dandy fine.
 
 I then stamped using da Konad Black & this Cici & Sisi plate 22
from da new Yellow set that came out recently on Amazon.
 
To see all da designs in this set,
Video tour of Cici & Sisi's Yellow Jumbo set #3
Michelle also did a video tour of Red Jumbo set #4
If you'd like to see da plates in da White Jumbo set #1
& Pink Jumbo set #2,
go check out this Show & Tell post I did last year.
 
These sets are available on Amazon & are a good value
for a bunch of original designs that come with their own storage
plus a stamper & scraper.
 
 Yep! These were fun.
 
>^. .^<
 
A lil back yard kitty adventure from last summer!
 
 
 I gots a big bug!
Ciri had found a 3" grasshopper!
 
 I losted it, but Luna will help me look...
 
 We gonna stay outta da collateral damage zone
& watch y'all from over here.
Jazz on da left & Ziggy on da right.
 
Luna, is you sitting on my big bug?
She was! LMBBO

TDWP SOA & a challenge met!

Hello Dahlings!

A few weeks ago my lil polish sis Sarah Penny Pinching Polish
did this awesome punk mani for her 70's nails
in da Crumpet's Nail Tarts Pick N' Mix 52 week challenge.
 
I was in drool mode on FB & mentioned a facetious fear
of putting an eye out if I wore spikes on my nails.
She said it wasn't really a big risk & dared me to do it!
 
So I did my interpretation of 70's punk nails with spikes...
 
 TA DA!
We have striped satin skinny slacks done
using me fav Essence skinny striper,
a skully glitter spiked leather jacket
done with SOA & Silver Spike Studs,
red tartan also done with da skinny striper
& an anarchy symbol done with a short detail brush.
Authentic? I dunno, but it's what I remember from those days
& I was not only alive,
but actively participating as a junior punk at the time.
 
 Da line up ~ The Devil Wears Polish SOA,
Lily of the Valley, Fling & Paint It Black
Tami...I really really would like to see Paint It Black reincarnated!
 
 Da lil spikes are from She Sells Seashells
I attached them using clear polish, then added a coat of Gelous around them
& then a coat of Seche Vite to make them uber secure.
They were a lil scratchy so I put a band aid over them at night
& while doing laundry & other tasks where they might get caught & ripped off.
 
Lookee at all da skully glitters!
SOA does have lil red hexes,
but somehow I managed to not get a single one on my nail.
That means more for later!
I didn't have to fish for da skulls at all.
 
>^. .^<
 
 Ciri being a lil punk...
 
...he really doesn't appreciate the irony
of a 7lb cat tackling a 15lb cat & winning!
 
Thanks for stopping by!
