Mum's the Word


So today I did some swatching of some new colors I snagged at ULTA (post will be up tomorrow), so I didn't have a ton of time left in the day to do an awesometacular design, but I love how simple and striking the palette and image I used for today's design are. I used another of the Bundle Monster plates for this design, I think that it looks like a stylized version of a Chrysanthemum, or 'Mum'.



I used American Apparel Cotton as a base, with American Apparel Hassid for the black mums and Essie Foot Loose for the pink mums, which I applied with Bundle Monster plate BM02. Topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Today was an awesome day- the story that was written about me for the Las Vegas Weekly Magazine was posted online, and the print version hits newsstands tomorrow here in Vegas!!! :) I'm thrilled!!

Las Vegas Weekly: Nailed It!.

I loved the article- and the last line was a perfect ending! :-P

  12. Great article! Really informative, but still fun; also, I predict you'll get a few job offers out of it! (If CEO's are smart...) (is that an oxymoron?)
    Anyhow, YAY!!!! Congratulations!
    Plus, I LOVE todays nails- airy, light, slightly retro, and very feminine without being "girly". Me likee.

  15. Nice article! I agree with you about the last line being a perfect ending!
    I don't think you'll have to worry about being laid off for long, you have a lot of talent between your nails and cooking skills. Plus, you seem super awesome, and that's only through a computer screen, so in real life you must make everyone adore you! :)

  19. I randomly clicked one of the month links form the archives and this came up. I saw you didnt use a special polish to stamp...I've not been
    able to do that! I tried using regular polishes but none transferred well at all. So you say then american apparel transfers well?
