Twinkie Nail Art Challenge Day 2: Gradient

Happy Friday, folks!!  Today’s post will be short and sweet.  The second prompt for the August challenge sponsored by @spilledmilknails and @polishedbybeckie is a gradient, which I’ve never done before.  Of course my nails would have to be kind of short when I tried it, which is what I believe lead to my lacklustre results.  Oh well, practice makes perfect, right??  🙂

Happy Friday, everybody!  The weekend is upon us as is the start of the Twinkie Nail Art challenge.  This is a one manicure per week challenge, on Fridays during August, which is more my speed as far as these things go.  I’ve only done one challenge before, and that was a 5 day one which seemed to work OK. this challenge is being hosted by Polished by Beckie and Spilled Milk Nails.  Thank you, ladies, for giving me a chance to force myself to practice nail art LOL.  I am excited to do my actual first ever gradient for this challenge, stay tuned to the blog to witness that next week!  First, however, is today’s challenge: the Throwback mani.

Cult Nails – Feel Me Up

Hello, everyone!   I hope you are having a great weekend so far.  Today I wanted to go for a very summery and bright polish, and one in a color I don’t usually wear: yellow.  This is where Feel Me Up from Cult Nails comes into the picture.  This is another polish from my recent 50% off haul from the Cult Nails site (celebrating her 200K likes on facebook, if I am not mistaken). So many great polishes and so much less than I would have spent without the sale!  🙂

Happy hump day!!

I know, I know, that’s SO three months ago.  I had an urge and I went with it. 🙂

On Wednesdays we wear pink!  I just love the movie Mean Girls, how about you guys?  There are even several Mean Girls themed polishes in my collection, and I inevitably have to stop and watch the movie if I catch it on.  Totally a guilty pleasure, I’ll admit.  I also love to memorialize and celebrate its hilarity and the Plastics code by wearing and/or posting pink nail polish on Wednesdays.

Cult Nails It’s a New Day Collection

Happy Sunday all!  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend and feel rested and refreshed and ready for the week ahead.  LOLOLOL  I know, I know, but still.  

Today I have a polish collection to share with you from one of my favorite polish makers, Cult Nails.  Maria makes wonderful polishes that I always seem to find the irresistible urge to buy! Her frequent sales and discounted collection pre-sales help to make this possible. ^_^  Today’s collection is the recently released It’s A New Day.  Funny story about this one, I placed my order a couple days before the end of the pre-sale and was excited to get my shipping information confirmed when the items were packaged.  They were shipped on 4/30 with an anticipated delivery date of 5/2.  May 2nd came and went and no polish. They seem to have taken a detour between the Orlando sort facility and my home in south central Pennsylvania as they were eventually delivered on May 12th after a trouble ticket and a couple calls to the USPS.  Did they go to Disney, Universal Studios or check out the New Harry Potter attractions?  Maybe visit some of my friends that still live in Florida?  The world may never know.  But I digress.  Now, on to the beautiful spring polishes……  Continue reading
