Send in Reinforcements!


Hey everyone!! Today was a lazy day, I ended up not going to class because I hurt myself on the jetty climbing around like a 5 year old (which apparently you can't do as easily when you're nearly 29), I slipped on a wet rock and pulled something in my calf and hurt something in my back. Sucky. The back injury hurts with each breath, I'd stop breathing, but that might be a worse situation to be in! :-P I FINALLY got my hands on Orly Glam Rock, the matte copper metallic that I've been lemming for a while now. (Nick G. from Sally Beauty went far and beyond his job to find it for me in the Vegas area, but alas, it was sold out, but I managed to get it from transdesign.com. YAY!!



To explain today's post title, I'll tell you what I used to create this manicure- PAGE REINFORCEMENT stickers!! :) I painted the Orly Glam Rock, then stuck the stickers on, painted the nails with American Apparel Peacock, then removed the stickers. After that, I used a dotting tool for the dots, which were an afterthought, because just the arcs looked super plain. I topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite top coat, I wanted to leave the copper matte, but the Peacock was matte because it was painted over the matte, and I didn't like how it looked. Hope you like it! :)

  1. OH man! Sorry to hear you hurt yourself, ICE is your friend, get it on the back and leg asap.
    I don't know how you do it, but I love that you come up with something fresh every single day. :)

  3. This is a really, really fun design. Loving the color combo too!! What a insanely cool use for page reinforcements (way cooler than reinforcing pages - I always found that rather annoying. If a page is so tattered it is falling out of my notebook, then I say good riddance! )(and then stash it in a folder.. haha).

    So sorry about your back and calf :( Goodness, it is crazy getting 'old.' I went to a playground a few months back with the kid I babysit and I destroyed a pair of shoes, hit my head on a low-hanging bar, and bumped my knee on an ill-placed slide. Hope ice helps everything feel better. If not, compression can be useful (depending on the injury). Hope it heals quickly and you're back to normal again soon :)

  12. I've done that before!! Mine didn't turn out quite as nice though. I didn't let the polish dry enough before taking off the stickers so it was a mess!

  14. Hey
    I was hoping you'd help me out. I check out your blog daily and I absolutely LOVE what project you came up with. I fall in love with almost all of your designs and i wish I could have my nails done by you!
    What i needed to ask you was regarding the KONAD stamps you use. I have one of their smaller kits, which i bought to try out and it was amazing! It needed a little practice to get hang of but i watched videos on the webpage and just had some patience. Now that I got the hang of it, I was hoping I'd have more stamp plates shipped over. But, Im confused. I want to get all the available designs, but I dont know what would be better, buying individual plates or their Super Plates with multiple plate designs. I was hoping you could help me out and tell me what you bought and how.
    I'd be waiting for your reply. Anxiously

  17. SO I just tried this, but with water marble underneath and it was a huge FAIL, but I'm trying it again tomorrow w/o the water marble...LOL
