Winstonia W112 Basket Weave Stamping

Hey Guys! Happy Tuesday!!
Today I have another mani using the Winstonia plates!

Winstonia W112

I really like this basket weave design.

 As always I used my fave silver for stamping, Sally Hansen Insta Dr Silver Sweep and 
for the base I used Essie Bobbing for Baubles.

I have seen so many posts from people about this Essie color so decided to break down and get it. It is such a great Navy and the application is so smooth and opaque in 2 coats. 

Thanks for taking a look and have a great day!

Kiss me I'm Irish

Hey Guys!
Happy Saturday! 
Got another St. Patty's mani for ya!

My wrist  that I hurt in the accident is really hurting today so wanted to keep it simple.
The pics don't really show how pretty the flakie shows through.

Just free handed a four leaf clover using a toothpick on the index and did the kiss stamp on the ring for the accents.

Winstonia Plate Testing

Hey Everyone! Happy Sunday!

So forgive my cuticles but was playing around and wanted to try out this stamp. 

 I had just watched Project Runway where they did a prom dress made out of Duck Tape. 
This one team did one to replicate houndstooth in red and black.

Julep Spring Mystery Box. To buy or not to buy?

Happy Friday Eve!

Just got an email about the Julep Spring Mystery Box!

Normally they cost 19.99 like the regular boxes but this one is $24.99. It's weird how psychologically I would not have a second thought if was the $20 but the $25 is making me not want it.

Hmmmmmm...... Should I get it?

Julep Maven March It Girl Box Mani

Hey Guys! Happy Monday!

As promised, here is the mani I came up with using
 the colors in the Julep Maven March It Girl Box.

These colors are just perfect for spring!

 I decided to use a sponge technique to get the watercolor like background.

I also could not wait to use my new Winstonia Plates!
Here I used W111

 From Top to Bottom:
Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat
Julep Simone
Julep Teri
Julep Shenae

I forgot to take picture of it but used Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Silver Sweep for the stamping.

I really love how these came out and I hope you do too.
Thank you for checking these out and I hope you have a fantastic rest of your week!

Julep Maven March "It Girl" Box

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I know it has been a while and I am so sorry. I had gotten into a car accident. I was driving and hit some water, hydroplaned and hit a tree. 
Luckily the only injuries I sustained was a super sprained wrist and I broke my tibia and ankle.

My beautiful Challenger was totaled but I am just so thankful that these were the only injuries!

Ok so onto the Julep Maven March Box!

 This month's theme is Get Ready to Play.

 I totally think I will be taking inspiration for the card and doing a look with a matte topcoat to mimic this chalk idea in the card.

As a bonus they included this Strawberry -Mint Lip Balm
Oh my goodness is this tasty!
It is super soft and very moisturizing!

Here are the three colors and the descriptions are from Julep's site:
From Top to Bottom:
Julep Simone: "Soft pastel lilac opalescent shimmer"
Julep Teri: Tropical coral pink crème"
Julep Shenae: "Pastel mint green opalescent shimmer"
