Leadlight Flowers

I have seen all this talk about the new technique called Leadlight, so I thought I would try it myself. First of all, leadlight is kind of like stained glass. You can buy polishes for this like OPI Sheer Tints, or you can make them yourself. I made mine myself. You just take a bottle of clear nail polish and add about 20 drops of your desired color of nail polish. Depending on the thickness of the polish, after you mix it up, you should have a nice sheer colored polish. I painted my nails all black and then stamped the flowers with white. Then I added color to the white to give it that pretty colorful tint. What do you think of this technique??

Modern Christmas

This is a more modern Christmas look. I love the hot pink and silver together. 


Mickey & Minnie

Summer is almost here! Is anyone planning a Disney vacation? I used to take my kids there when they were younger, but my youngest son is graduating high school next week! So it's been quite a while since I have got to see Mickey or Minnie Mouse! 

I don't think you are ever too old to enjoy the magic of Disney, but for today I just have to enjoy it on my nails!! The red polish in the photo is called Cherry On Top by Sinful Colors from the Kandee Johnson, Vintage Mattes collection. It's the perfect red for any Summertime adventures!!

Kandee Johnson Vintage Mattes

Have you gotten your hands on any of these? I gotta say that Sinful Colors has done some amazing collaborations lately!! This one with Kandee Johnson was great! All the stores near me sold out of them very fast so I was only able to get part of the Vintage Mattes collection. These are the ones I tried...



This is the prettiest pink and it is my favorite one! It is called Strawberry Milk. I mean, just look at it ! 😅☺



The white is called Whipped Frosting. I really love this one too! It's a great white to have in your collection.


This beautiful blue is called Candy Hearts. Because of the matte, it really does remind you of candy hearts!



Our next one is called Peaches N Cream. A lovely shade of peach!


I usually don't care for greens too much, but this one called Mint Chip is an exception!!


This is Pin Up Pink! It is a vibrant shade of pink that I am glad I got my hands on!!


This cherry red is called Cherry On Top. I like this one because this is my first and only red matte polish…
