Nails from Camping Trip

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

Happy Monday lovelies, I hope everyone had a great weekend. My weekend was filled with camping and doing nails. Every year my family along with five other families go camping for a week, I went up for the weekend and did about 20 set of nails, including some men! Today I wanted to share the mani that I got pictures of, I did use my phone camera and no light box so apologize for any bad quality photos.

First up I have all the ladies nails I did, sadly I didn't get pictures of them all and some turned out blurry. I had a ton of fun showing these girls all the different techiniques I use and espically amazed them all with stamping.

My sister was inspired by a pin on pinterest.

She loved purples and pearls.

This young lady loved my peacock nails from last year, she also is getting into doing her own nail art!

My Mom wanted a sunset, and also loved my gone with the wind so we incorporated a tree.

She was inspired by my blingy mani a few months back, and we changed the colors to pink.

The hornet represent the school mascot where she works.

I loved how the silver popped off the blue background, also the hot air balloon was a fan favorite.

My brother's fiance found an owl pin on pinterest that she wanted.
She wanted a subtle design that was work appropriate.

Even some of the men let me do their nails/nail!

This is my boyfriends, his favorite nfl team being the Texans.

Also my Dad wanted a confederate flag since he does civil war reenactments.

This man was the most fun to do, he knew exactly what he wanted. Love the bright colors!
It was a blast doing all these nails. I love being able to show others all the possibilities you can do with nail polish. It is also fun to watch how amazed they were with my collection.  I was most proud of the Texan's thumbs for my boyfriend, he was totally obsessed with them also :D
Have a great work week!!

Born Pretty Store Pearl Rhinestone, Review

Yay it's Friday lovelies, and I have a fun weekend with a wedding tomorrow! I recently got some Pearl Rhinestones from Born Pretty Store to review and I knew I just had wear them to match my dress for the wedding. Below is my review of these gorgeous pearls.

The Pearl Rhinestones come in this nail art wheel (shown above) with regular nail glue. You can see there are three sizes (shown to the left) to choose from, which is great for versatility. Each size comes with a large amount of pearls that I can see lasting a long time. Whether you like big 3D nail art or more subtle 3D nail art these will work great. Below is a look I came up with.
Bad Lighting :S

China Glaze: Life is Rosy
Sinful Colors: White on White
Cheeky Jumbo: Home Sweet Home

Since I prefer the more subtle 3D nail art I choose to use the Medium and Small size pearls for this look. I wanted to create a half moon and later realized this makes it look like a pearl necklace :D Below is a picture to show how much they stick off the nail.

You can see they don't stick off the nail, much at all. I applied one coat of Out the Door on top and they don't catch on hair or clothing. It is also give the perfect amount of texture to the touch, in fact I like to randomly feel my nail :D This whole mani looks perfect next to my rosey lace dress!

I absolutely love these Pearl Rhinestones, and for only $4.44 they are a steal! The Born Pretty Store really has so much to offer in nail art items, they also offer free International shipping. Make sure to use my coupon code below for 10% off!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

LDTTWC, Day 7, Your Timless to Me!

One challenge left after todays! I can't believe how fast this challenge went. I hope you all have been enjoying my creations, today is in honor of something that has NEVER gone out of style. My two ideas was little black dress and pearls. I choose pearls, check out my strand of pearls...
The base color is Zoya: Avery, NYC: Sidewalkers, China Glaze: White on White, and Spectrafliar. Top coat of Out the Door.
The base color is a nude to represent skin, like the neck with pearls on it. Spectraflair added shine, I used dotting tools to create the pearls.
Check out what our last challenge is
