Apples

It's officially Fall!! This look was inspired by my recent trip to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. On the last day before we left, we stopped to eat at a wonderful place called the Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant connected to the Apple Barn. They have a gift shop that has everything you could think of having to do with apples. I highly recommend it!! The green is called Innocent by Sinful Colors, The red is MoYou Nails special stamping polish and I used Cheeky Jumbo plate 7- Home Sweet Home. 



Sinful and silver

This was the design I decided to make from one of the polishes in my last post. I chose the Sinful Colors Dream On. The accent nail is silver stamping polish and stamping plate #124 is by MoYou Nails.  I added little rhinestones in a very close color to finish the look! :)



Pretty polishes on a budget

Today I wanted to compare three different brands of polish that were similar in color. The first one is by Pixi called Very Violet. It sells for eight dollars a bottle. The one in the middle is from Sinful Colors called Dream On. This one is two dollars and it looked very similar to the Pixi, almost a perfect match, but I had to add a clear coat to give it the shine that the Pixi already had. The third one is made by LA Colors, it's called Electra. This one you can get for a dollar usually. It was a little lighter than the other two, but it required three coats where the others only needed two. You can still get the look of the more expensive polish for less. :)




Graphic Design

For this design I used 3 colors, Sinful Colors Dream On which is the one pictured, Broadway Nails Waterproof and LA Colors Mint. I sponged them on over a white base. The stamping plate is QA97 from bornprettystore.com and the black stamping polish is from MoYou Nails, it is the only stamping polish I use.
