Crackle French

What a week!  My computer crashed (I'm on my hubby's laptop).  My 103 yr old great grandfather passed away.  And I started a new job.  I'm definitely looking forward to a better week coming up!

So, I don't have photoshop on this computer so I did the best I could.  Basically I used a holo (China Glaze  GR8) and covered it with CG Faultline (crackle).  I think covered it with CG Golden Enchantment for a little sparkle.  It's okay. Have a great week!

Crackle Experiment 3

My lovely step daughter was visiting and wanted  me to paint her nails.  It's so weird painting someone elses nails.  This is only the 2nd time I've done it.  She wanted crackle so this is what we did.  Thanks for modeling Brittany.  I start back to work tomorrow.  Boy, getting up early today was hard.  Guess, I'll just have to get use to it again.

Crackle Experiment 2

Ok, so I'm still experimenting with the China Glaze Crackle Polishes.  This one is okay.  At least it gives you some ideas.  I like the first one better!

Black & White Crackle Manicure


Thought I'd try another China Glaze crackle manicure.  I chose a black base and used the white crackle on it. I think it's pretty cool.  The white and black crackles are easier to work with thus far. The pink one, not so much.  I have a how to on youtube if you want to watch.

Un Valentine's Day Manicures

Decided to do some Un Valentine's Day manicures. Although, apparently on my youtube channel most are upset and think it's disgusting that I would do such a thing.  To each their own.  Not everyone celebrates Valentines Day.  It's not sacrilege.  I have some friends who don't like the commercialism.  I have some friends who are single and just broke up and they aren't happy.  I'm not defending anything because there is room for all different types of designs, I just found the outrage kind of over the top.  If you don't like them, you don't like them but disgusting.....

I did a different design on each nail so that you would have ideas and could also mix and match some of the ideas.  I actually go the 6 China Glaze crackle polishes from my nail place so I used them. I couldn't afford to get you guys the whole set right now but I did get you the black one. I will be posting the giveaway on Saturday, probably around lunch time.  So, stay tuned.

Valentine's Mani


Here's another Valentine's day mani.  I used one of the 2 sided nail art polishes I got from Born Pretty (see side for coupon), and then I added some different colored hearts in the centered and polished over it with CG Golden Enchantment.  I'm trying to get a few more things for the giveaway.  So, will be posted this week.

Blue Manicure


It's been a great day! I got a job offer which I'm going to take 10 minutes from my house (awesome).  So, I start in a few weeks.  I was feeling the color blue today so whipped something together.  I should be posting my blog anniversary contest in the next few days.  So, keep an eye out.

I used Art Deco Blue Glitter.  In the center I used CG Golden Enchantment.  As always, let me know what you think!
