Drip Marble - no water needed!

Hello and welcome! In my last post I mentioned that I learned about a new nail art technique and would be trying it. It's called drip marble - the results are gorgeous marbled designs without any water! This is what I've been hoping to achieve but wasn't brave enough to try with watermarble.

I think it's best to learn straight from the source, and in this case it's Colette of My Simple Little Pleasures. Check out her video on the process here!

Stamping Saturday: Summer Flowers

It's Saturday and I have another stamped mani to show off today. I know it's my most used nail art technique but it's so simple and there are so many beautiful designs!I brought some plates and polish to work yesterday and did a little demo on stamping...I wonder if my coworkers will be disenchanted by my nails now that they know how easy it is!

Hello and welcome to June's first #TheLacquerRing post - the color choice is Seafoam! Sorry it's been quiet around the blog - I promise I've been painting my nails, but I got a couple easy peel base coats to play with, and well...they're a little too easy. I end up shedding my manis a lot faster than I expected, and not all of them make it to their photoshoot, lol.

So I got a little ahead of myself and thought the link up was happening last week, and tried to figure out what seafoam is really supposed to look like. 4 seafoam-ish manis later, and I'm still posting a day late! How did that happen?? I guess inspiration didn't find me till the last minute, but let's look at my mani!

Neutral & Neon - Waterspotted Watermarble

Hello and welcome! Today I have just a quick little post on a design I stumbled upon on Instagram and immediately had to try - it's a watermable/waterpotted kind of oil slick looking design. 

Inspiration mani by Hannah of blitzseryozha can be seen here, and her video on making this is here.
