Scottish Thistle Nail Art



Hello everyone! I'm posting today because my best friend is getting married today! Unfortunately I couldn't be there to celebrate with her, but she knows how much I love her and wish I could be there. So I decided to do some nail art as a tribute to her. If you know Sheila (Pointless Cafe) at all, you know she loves Scotland. In fact, she will be getting married and honeymooning there! So, what better way to "be a part of" the wedding than painting a Scottish Thistle?




I was inspired by the clip art image (added to the corner of my picture above) because it had the heart around it. I wish my heart would have turned out better, but overall I'm pretty happy with it!







I used A England Sleeping Palace as my base because it is Sheila's favorite polish (plus it's gorgeous)! The thistle color was created using Illamasqua stance and white polish. The rest was done with acrylic paint.







I hope you have an amazing day and an even better life together, Sheila! I'm sending you so many hugs (and tears) today. <3

Game of Thrones Nail Art

Nothing to Disclose


Long time, no blog! It's been forever since I have done nail art, and even longer since I did freehand nail art. I miss it, but life has just been so busy lately I haven't had much time. I wouldn't say this is a "come back," but I am going to try to make my nail art more of a priority than I have the last few months. I'm not sure I will be able to post on the blog much, but I do post most of my manis on my Instagram and Facebook page if you'd like to follow me there. :)

Alter Ego: Psyched Up - Swatches and Review


Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend! Cynthia from Alter Ego has recently created a group for her brand on Facebook. She asked for group custom suggestions and I suggested a bright red creme. She created it and named it in honor of MY alter ego -weight loss journey, and the blog I have for it. This is Psyched Up, inspired by Who Ate My Psyche?.
