Mint Mani for TaliaJoy18

I had to pull one out of the vault for this tribute manicure,because my nails are down to nubbins. I am in between applications of my CNS nails. I should have them back on in a day or so because I have lots of swatches yet to come.

This couldn't wait though,because Friday,July 19th,is Mint Mani's for TaliaJoy and I wanted to contribute something of myself to her memory.


this is Zoya Pixie Dust polish,the one called Vespa,a mint colored polish with sugared sparkle.

Talia Joy, a lovely young lady who passed away from cancer at the age of 13. They say God takes the good ones home first. Rest in peace,Talia.<3

A new Indie polish

Nothing to Disclose



I feel like I am running behind schedule with this,but the last time I tried to upload these photos,my pc wouldn't cooperate with my smartphone in retrieving the photos,so this post is somewhat delayed.

First off, I won this polish called "Shifty Randall" from Sweet Heart Polish on Facebook a couple of weeks ago.
Here is a bottle shot.





You're probably familiar with the latest Monsters movie that came out recently called Monsters U.
This polish is part of a trio created by Cassandra,and inspired by Randall, one of the characters of Monsters Inc. The trio of polishes is callled Scare U.

I now have a swatch of the polish for you. This is three coats of Shifty Randall over two coats of Wet n' Wild black creme.







Shifty Randall has a blurple shimmery base with lots of iridescent glitter that also shifts from purple,to blue and also green.I think it's a very good interpretation of Randall's evil character in the movie. The glitter in this polish appears to me to be more of a flake glitter,so when I applied it,I was surprised at how the polish resembled more of a flakie polish than a glitter polish.

With that being said,the formula was a tad bid on the thick side,but if you apply it in thin coats,it goes on very nicely. I actually had no real trouble with application. The blue/purple shimmery base is very much to my liking,and the glitter is magnificent. 


Sweet Heart Polish is available on Etsy for $8/bottle.

Monsters Inc inspired stamping!

Good evening,

Sorry I haven't posted much in nails lately. The photos have been sitting in my smartphone,and the ridiculous software on my PC will not retrieve the images,because of an error message that says the files are corrupted.I don't really get how I can have corrupted files on my Samsung Galaxy Note II.


I had  in my mind a concept for what I wanted to do with the stamp from Bundle Monster plate 203.Well,it was pretty in my head,but harder for me to execute. Anyway this is what resulted.It's actually a nice test run with my new Squishy XL stamper that I picked up from Winstonia.

I did this stamping over a blurple glitter polish that I will be reviewing in an upcoming post. Meanwhile let's take a look at my stamping manicure.

For this manicure I used:

BM 203 the image at the top,Konad plates M27 and M33. I also used Konad special stamping polish pastel blue.


 On my pinky nail, I used the image of the seahorse from Konad M27 to represent Randall from Monsters Inc.  On my index finger I stamped the crab from Konad plate M33 to represent Henry J. Waternoose III,the company's chairman of Monsters Inc. I also took a Color Club striper and put a frame around the image. That was fun!

After that I used the image from BM 203 form my thumb,middle and ring fingers. I just like that image. I did use some top coat,and the stamped image lasted just long enough for me to take photos,before the Konad polish ran. That was a foul mess. I don't like Seche,I don't like the majority of topcoats out there,because they even pull polish off of my normal manicures. If anyone knows of a good topcoat for stamping,please comment below.

So how do you like my Monsters Inc inspired stamping mani? Have you been out to see the new Monsters movie "Monsters U"? I am looking forward to seeing it once it comes out on DVD.
