 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

 Who here is excited for the final four March Madness games tonight!?!? I am really excited Michigan has made it this far. I originally didn't really plan to do a themed mani for this but was contacted about a contest at Ishah x Beauty and loved the idea! The contest ends tomorrow, so you still have the chance to enter!

I had to include the hashtag in my entry picture
Color Club: Almost Famous, Beyond, Cosmic Fate, Kismet, and Harp On It
NYC: Orange Traffic Jam
OPI: Russian Navy
China Glaze: Red Satin
Sinful Colors: Black on Black


 It was alot of fun doing these logos and I love how I was able to add the hologram polishes. As you can see I used gluequins on the M since I want them to win!! Hope you liked this mani even if you aren't a basketball fa. You know what I will be doing tonight, GO BLUE!!

Fathers nail, Michigan!!


Yes you read my title correctly, my dad let me paint one of his nails on vacation also. My dad is in the same mind set of the other males that have nail blogs, he doesn't see what the big deal is. He has always let me and my sis paint his thumbs when we would go camping and being that I have shown some talent lately he wanted a special design!
Block M it is! My family is huge Michigan fans so this was not surprising. Our basement design theme is Michigan, we have a huge block M on the wall surrounding it with the Big 10 symbols. I only had one yellow that qualified for Michigan Maize, he didn't even mind the sparkle. :)
 Three coats of Color Club: Daisy Does It and used OPI: Russian Nacy for the Block M. Top Coat of Out the Door.
Another part of the story is that I had to do this design twice... he was not patient enough and tried to change his clothes right away... major fail. When I was done doing his his nail for the second time he sat down for a nap, and to his surprise I painted his toes a sparkle bomb!! He didn't even feel it or notice it when he put his socks on!! Not till later that night he comes back from the shower and said "my thumb is still good!", so we asked if his toes were to... :) Now those were a sight at the beach the next day!
