Strawberry Kiwi

Alas, my heart breaks when we start to bid adieu to the long summer nights, warm breezes and fire pits. I've been digging through my supplies to keep things bright and in line with the season when I found this Born Pretty Store water decal french tips.

I have shrunken hands so had to whack and hack these down to fit my nails, I'm not always great at cutting straight. I lined everything up as best as I could. The base was two coats of Wet N' Wild Sugar Coat.
I added the kiwis from konad plate m55 and China Glaze Running in Circles. What are you doing to enjoy the last days of summer?

Sail Away with Me

Ahoy matey! Am I the only obsessed with nautical anything? Sweaters, color combos, stamping plates...I've been sitting on these Born Pretty Store water decals and when I looked at my FUN plate 3 and saw the adorable sailboats I knew they would be wonderful together.

This is two coats of Icing True Blue stamped with Sinful Black on Black. I then used the LeadLight technique to fill in the boats with Loreal Lolly Jolly and Miss Pixie.

I used the Born Pretty Store water decals, which I am a big fan of.

Ellagee Dolphins of the Caribbean

Ever since I was little, I've been OB-Sessed with dolphins. They are so beautiful and look like they are always smiling. Hearing stories about wild dolphins saving swimmers or surfers just amazes me. I pretty much peed my pants when I was about 10 and was able to swim with them my first trip to Mexico.

So when Laura laid these polishes on the world, I knew the next addition to my stash. Dolphins of the Caribbean is a teal jelly with various sized hex glitter and DOLPHIN glitters. Three coats covered really well and resulted in a rich color.
I stamped the accent nails with the waves from Vivid Lacquer 023 and Hello Kitty by Sephora Bubble Gum. It looks as if the dolphins are jumping through the waves.
Would you let the dolphies grace your talons?

Golden Rose Neon Jelly

So let me profusely apologize for having horrific cuticles! I haven't been giving much care to them and you can definitely tell here in the Colorado Alpine Desert. I've been involved in a great little birthday swap group on Facebook and received this awesome Golden Rose hot pink jelly polish from Singapore along with many other beauties.
I started with three coats of the jelly. I then stamped the stars from plate BBF 01. I followed it up with the skull and bandana image from MoYou Biker 10. For the stamping I used Color Club Halo Hues Beyond.
I also thought these adorb black star rhinestones would top this off nicely. Of course if you'd like a few rainy, overcast days, just ask me to use a holo! I couldn't catch the sun on this one for photos and was sadfaced about it.
