Greetings and Nailutations!

Today I am sharing a new indie on the block - Pug Posse Nail Lacquer!  As you can tell by the name, she is a mother of pugs.  :)  She is coming out with 2 debut collections (and I will add that she was already selling wax melts - so you can grab both melts AND nail polish at the same time!!!) and this first one I will be sharing is the Take Us To Mars Collection, which contains 4 neon crellies.

It Girl Nail Art IG118 Stamping Plate Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press Sample*
Today I am sharing my review and thoughts on It Girl Nail Art IG118 Plate.  Every so often a stamping plate is created that says so much, that makes a statement and that resonates with me.  It Girl's IG118 plate did that for me.  Coinciding with LGBTQ Pride month (June), Nicole of IGNA has created a Pride LGBTQ, BLM, peace, safety pin, ally, equality plate.  So much is expressed in this plate, it made my heart warm.  There are so many images that I was familiar with but also some that I had to use the power of the internet to get information on (like all the different striped images).


Now let's get to the nail art!

Digit-al Dozen: Fashion Magazine Paper

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is our final day for the Digit-al Dozen paper prompt and I wanted to go through the magazine clippings I had in my mani-cave for mani inspirations.  I also wanted something that combined the prompt paper for the Digit-al Dozen and fruit for Nail Crazies Unite.  I happened up on a dress that said "MAKE A MANI OF ME!!!"

Digit-al Dozen: Paper Sunset Puzzle

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is Day 4 of the Digit-al Dozen and we are continuing with the paper prompt.  I was trying to think what is made of paper products that I could do a pretty scene on...and then it hit me = PUZZLES!  I am such a lover of puzzles.  I use apps now on my iPad now, but there is something so soothing about putting chaos into beautiful order to me.

Digit-al Dozen: Inspired by Tissue Paper

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is a Digit-al Dozen week!  Our prompt this week is paper - so you will see 5 manis from me all related to paper!  Today I decided to use tissue paper as my inspiration.  I have kept this piece of tissue paper for quite a while.  Drip Drop Nail Paint would pack her products in adorable prints of tissue paper and I knew I wanted to re-create this pattern.  This paper prompt was the perfect excuse!


Let's get to the details!

Neon + Orange = Bassackwards?

Greetings and Nailutation,

It's been too many days away from my blog - this last week at work has been rough and I also started trying to eat better this week too, so meal prep/planning takes time away from blogging.  But the good news is the work craziness should get better after next week AND I've lost almost 4 pounds!

Today I will be sharing a mani for the groups 30 Days of Colour and Nail Challenge Collaborative.  I am combining 2 prompts: orange and neon.  Funny story - I grabbed this orange, threw it on & was confused.  It looked pink on me.  Then a quick google search told me that it was a THERMAL!  SURPRISE!


Let's get to the details!
