Sally Hansen Petal Pusher stamped with m2

20 Apr

Looking back through old posts the other day, I found the very first post I published, it was also the first stamping I did. To be honest, it was pretty awful! :oops: So I decided to recreate that first manicure to see if it turns out any better!

Here is that very first picture for reference, be warned though, it’s bad and my skin is so dry and cracked!

Bad, isn’t it? :shock:

Well, here is how it looks now!

Sally Hansen Petal Pusher

I’d say it’s an improvement in every way!
This was three coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Petal Pusher, and there is still a bit of visible nail line. I got lots of bubbles, and looking back now it bubbled before too so it might be an issue with this polish. I stamped a flower image from Konad plate m2 (this was the only plate I had at the time, now I have a binder full of them!), and Konad white polish. Then I added half pearls in the center of each flower and sealed everything with top coat.

I was a bit embarrassed to post the first picture, but I’m also very proud to see how much better my nails look now compared to before!

Thanks for looking! :)

31 DC – Tape

13 Mar

This was yesterday’s challenge, however I’ve had a rough couple of days, that’s why it’s been quiet here and I’m just getting to post this now. I liked how this turned out so even though it’s late I wanted to show you!





I used Orly Gumdrop as my base color. When that was dry, I put on pieces of striping tape in a random pattern on each nail and applied one coat of Sally Hansen In A Flurry on top. The last close up picture shows all the imperfections but from a normal distance it looked fine. In A Flurry has multicolored shimmer flecks in a black base, it was more sheer than I expected so some spots were not as dark and opaque as I wanted, but I liked how sparkly it looked in the sunlight!

Sally Hansen Lively Lilac with Flower Water Decals

23 Feb

Hi everybody! I hope everyone’s weekend is going well, we are supposed to get some rain and snow tonight and tomorrow but hopefully it won’t be too bad. I can’t tell you how much I want spring to get here already!
Speaking of spring, I did a quick flowery look with some water decals I got from KKCenterHK.


I wanted to match the colors of the decals so I started with Sally Hansen Insta Dri Lively Lilac and sponged the tips with Sally Hansen Lightening (whenever I need a yellow for nail art I pull out Lightening because it’s the only yellow creme I own!). I forgot to take a picture of the decal sheet before I cut them out, but here is the link to them: WDBLE210. You get twenty decals in a couple of different designs.



These look like pansies to me, but I’m not very good with flowers so I could be wrong! Either way, water decals are fun and easy to use, just dip in water, position them on your nails and seal with top coat. KKCenterHK has ton of different designs to choose from and you can get 10% off your order with the code susyincolor.

Thanks for looking! :)

Water decals were provided for review by KKCenterHK.

Sally Hansen Lagoon with Orly Mermaid Tale

18 Feb

I was in the mood for some glittery tips so I grabbed one of my untried glitters, Orly Mermaid Tale, a pretty green glitter!

I started with Sally Hansen Lagoon, a blue/green duochrome. Love the color but the brushstrokes were a bit too noticeable for me. Then I dabbed Mermaid Tale on the tips until I got enough glitter coverage. I wish the color shift was more visible in pictures, it was prettier in person. The last picture was taken inside under a lamp, I think it shows the change to blue a bit better.

Pretty & Polished Witchy Woman

24 Oct

Hi everyone! There are so many Halloween/Fall collections coming out recently, honestly I found it a bit overwhelming! I do enjoy all these polishes and it’s great there are so many fun shades to choose from, I was just having a hard time keeping track of all the new stuff. I did manage to get a few Halloween shades though, and here is one from Pretty & Polished!

Pretty & Polished Witchy Woman

I tried Witchy Woman on its own on one nail but after three coats it was still too sheer, so I layered one coat over Sally Hansen Purple Pulse. The base is a sheer shimmery dark purple, and it’s full of tiny green and bright pink glitter, some black hexes and purple shreds. The shreds were still a little bumpy after one coat of SV, but other than that I had no issues, it applied very well. Sorry about the dent on my middle nail, I was too impatient and didn’t wait long enough to start using my hands!

I’m not usually a fan of shredded glitter but I didn’t mind it mixed in with the other glitters here. I think it looks best layered over dark purples or maybe a black!
Witchy Woman and other Pretty & Polished colors are currently available at the Etsy store and Llarowe.
