Fairytale Pastel Stamping

Fairytale Pastel Stamping

I’d hoped that when I finally posted back in February I was back but it was not to be – life has just been too hectic! I have something for you today, and it is stamping. My stamping plate collection has exploded over the last several months, as has my stamper collection… but more on that another time. When I picked up a few of the most recent Barry M offerings, the Speedy Dry collection, there was one plate that jumped right out at me and begged to be paired with them:

Last Minute Halloween with Models Own

Last Minute Halloween with Models Own

It’s Halloween today! Are you ready?! Don’t worry if your nails are still bare, I’ve got TWO really quick ideas for you today!

As I mentioned yesterday, I don’t do Halloween, but I’m going to a gig tonight and it seemed the perfect excuse to adorn my nubbins with something a bit different. As I’ve been watching Dexter for the last several months (just started Season 5, no spoilers!) I really wanted to try out blood spatter!

Throwback Tri-Polish Tuesday

Throwback Tri-Polish Tuesday

If you cast your mind back all the way to May, which was nearly a month ago already, the Tri-Polish Tuesday colours were Purple, Red and Green. I did three designs which I was chuffed to bits with, and not one of them made it onto the blog in time. May was just one of those months.

So instead, tonight you get all three of them!

Spring in Hawaii

Spring in Hawaii

Not sure why I thought this would be an appropriate title. The flower stamp always makes me think of Hawaiian shirts – the bass player in my band certainly has a few!

I have had the Bundle Monster 2012 plate for some time but have really, really struggled to get them to work properly. I now have a squishy stamper for MoYou and I’ve just about got the hang of using it so this is a much better attempt at stamping than I have managed for a long while!

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 12: Camouflage

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Challenge Day 12: Camouflage

Excuse me while I go all old-school on this prompt. I had this camo green from Claire’s Accessories and doing a traditional camouflage design with it has been on my to-do list ever since.
