"NOW" I know why everyone raves over OPI "Jade Is The New Black"!

Click to enlarge as always! :)
Like the title says "NOW" I know why everyone raves over OPI "Jade Is The New Black"!

The first coat is streaked and yucky but the second coat makes everything perfect.

I like this so much I couldn't bare to Konad over it. :)
If you are waiting on this one, don't wait any longer!

La Colors "Amethyst" Fauxnading using Plate BM13

This is one of the polishes that my Grandson Drew picked out for me for Mother's Day. :) 

It is LA Colors "Amethyst"!

Application was a *itch! First coat was running and streaked but 
the second coat fixed everything. Two coats isn't bad. :)

Pretty color eh?

I then Fauxnaded using plate BM13. I used the spider because I thought Drew would think they were cool and the web and spider on the thumb. :o)

Neat eh?

For the silver I used China Glaze Millennium. It was awesome. A much better silver than the Konad Silver.

I thought I would have to hurry so the China  Glaze Millennium wouldn't dry but it didn't even have a hint of drying on me. :)

Here are the supplies I used.
Have a great Memorial Weekend!

Orly "My Beau" BM'd with plate BM16! LOL

Ok, it didn't take me long to find a nice design and choose a Konad Polish. I used Konad Princess Polish Coral Blue with a design on plate BM 16.
Left hand with sore finger. LOL!

Left hand again. :)

Right hand! Pretty eh?

Right hand again.
I really like this design. I'm getting pretty fast as Fauxnading. :)

Gotta match my shirt to my nails eh? LOL!
OFF for another Harley ride. CYA's.

NOTD: Orly "My Beau"

This is Orly "My Beau"!
It is a very, very, very pale yellow.

It sure is hot here. Whew!

I didn't think I was going to like it but I do. It took 4 coats
to get it this way. :) Application wasn't that easy.

My cuticle sure doesn't look much better.
I think I will be Konading over this tomorrow OR should I say BMing over it. LOL.
(Stay tuned as I'm thinking of a new giveaway)
Have a great day,

(POST 2): LA Color "Bright Pink" & gifts from my grandson, daughter in law and son!

Today I received awesome gifts for Mother's Day from my grandson Drew, daughter in law Erica, and my son Ron They made me two awesome cards with words written I will never forget. So sweet. I also got three LA Colors Nail Polishes, a ball :o) and a beautiful holder for a candle but Drew and I decided to put in on my new bathroom vanity to put my rings and watch in.
My son gave me a written and signed note saying he would take me out to breakfast some morning and a hug. :)
Neat eh?

This is LA Colors "Bright Pink"! Out of the three Drew picked this one out for me to try first. :)

Look at my ripped cuticle? YES, I ripped it. There was dry skin there and I pulled it and it went right across the whole nail. OUCH! 
Very pretty color isn't it? The application was nice. This is two coats.

Mother's Day Gifts (TWO POSTS)

Aren't these beautiful?
These came by Federal Express from my son Andrew and his wife Melissa. 
I enjoyed them so much.
I got this card from my grandson Mason who was 10 months old at the time. :)

Read it. It is so very cute. She where he drew all over it? :)

See his hand at the bottom?
SO sweet.

Requested BM20 in pink and black:

I had a request from ARTOFNAIL, her website is here: for me to try the BM20 plate with the design of stars and arrows in a pink base with black Konading. 
Sorry but I didn't even see until just now in her request that she wanted me to use the MODE pink nail polish. Whoops. Hope this will show you what you wanted to see. :)
I used the pink from Color Club called "She's Soo Glam" that I got in a swap from my friend Jackie S. Her website is here:
It was probably just me but I had a *itch of a time with the application. 
This is 3 coats. OH SO PRETTY!

I love pinks! :)

Here is the Konading with plate BM20 and Konad black special polish!

I'm really loving the pink with black. Thanks ARTOFNAIL for suggesting I try it. :)

Don't ya love it?

Went photo nuts eh?

Had to get an outdoor shot! :)

Oh and had to show you how it goes good with my Harley shirt.
My husband of 36 years is going to swoop me up on the Harley when he gets home from work and head out for supper. :)
Enjoy the weekend gals,

I won a giveaway! Nail of the Day and Fauxnading with plate BM20

I won vibrant point of view's giveaway. COOL EH? Thanks Vicki!
I got to choose "6" of the many Mode Polishes she had. Here are the 6 I picked.
Aren't they pretty?

HERE is her blog:

This is Mode Cosmetics "Hook Me Up"!
Pretty eh? I'm loving this color.

I was having one of those bad application days where I flooded my cuticles and I kept banging into stuff but it looks pretty good.
This is two coats.

I wore it plain for awhile as it is so pretty but decided to do a design from the Bundle master plate BM20 and Konad Blue Pearl.

I like this design a lot.

Matches my shirt for the day of course. LOL!

Here is the plate. The design is on the upper right hand corner.

These are the supplies I used. 
The Borghese is something I got on sale at Rite Aid one day. It is called Perfetto Smudge Smoother. I have never used a smudge fixer before so I don't know how this rates but I can say it has worked to fix a problem 8 out of 10 times. :)
Have a great week,
