Nail Art - V-Shaped Gradient

Friday, September 30, 2016

purchased by meaffiliate link
I did these nails on Monday for Tuesday's Nail Art post but didn't get the post completed. I have had some crazy stuff going on in my personal life and it has kept me away from my blog. You will notice that these nails have wear on them too.

I got the inspiration for these nails from Pinterest. They are not in an exact copy. I changed the colors. I did them twice because I wasn't sure if I should put the white over the gradient, or the gradient over the white. I finally was satisfied with the look by putting the gradient over the white.

I used China Glaze White on White for the foundation and three colors of China Glaze for the gradient.

Here is the V-shaped gradient:

Plan With Me - Fleur de Lis

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

purchased by meaffiliate link
Can you believe it's the end of September already? Fall is in the air. We had two thunder and lightning storms this week that were pretty scary. Leaves are falling and nights are cool.

This is one of the first kits I created. I'm just now getting around to formatting it for sale in my shop. But I love the colors and fleur de lis are one of my favorite designs. I am just drawn to them.

This kit consists of several styles of fleur de lis. The coordinating stickers have swirls in light gray and white. I also included some GLITTER STICKERS for those of you who are into them.

The kit is done in teal and light gray and nearly pops off the page. Again, I have given you some extra full boxes and an extra weekend banner for those who are not into no whitespace planning. Those people can get two weeks out of a kit!

Just a reminder, that these stickers come in both sizes that will fit the MAMBI Happy Planner and the sizes that will fit the Erin Condren Life Planner.

I have a new shop at You'll find this kit there.

Nail Art - Dots

Saturday, September 17, 2016

purchased by meaffiliate link
Today's Nail Art was supposed to be posted on Tuesday but the week got away from me. Although I did them on Monday (you can see the wear on the tips) I haven't had time to post them and until today.

This is a typical dot design. I was inspired by Pinterest. There are a lot of dot designs on Pinterest, but I saw one in particular that I liked. I changed up a little bit so it wouldn't be an exact copy.

I used a Color Club holographic polish for the foundation and acrylic paint for the dots in yellow, pink, and green.

Here is the design I did for you:

Plan With Me - Cute Kittens & Halloween Owls

Fall is really in the air today. This a crisp day, kind of overcast, with threats of rain. If there were piles of leaves to jump in it would be perfect. It just hasn't progressed to that point yet. It makes me yearn for a cup of cocoa.

I am so excited to introduce this new kit to you. If you are a cat person, you will appreciate this kit. It is full of stickers that have cats, pawprints, and things that cats like such as mice and fish. The featured colors are blue, pink, beige, gray, and black.

I love cats and was drawn to this kit immediately. Between my boyfriend and I, we have four cats, Dusty, Daisy, Bat, and Lionheart. Lionheart is over 20 years old so I got Daisy recently so that I would have a cat when Lionheart passes away. I have had Lionheart since he was born. Daisy is about four months old and full of vigor and vim.

Bat is pregnant again! We can't seem to catch her between pregnancies to get her fixed! If you know anyone who wants a kitten, her babies will probably big big enough in about 10 or 11 weeks.

This kit includes GLITTER BOXES again. They are gorgeous and seem appropriate for the kit.

Just a reminder, that these stickers come in both sizes that will fit the MAMBI Happy Planner and the sizes that will fit the Erin Condren Life Planner.

I have a new shop at You'll find this kit there.

Nail Color of the Week - Julep Maven Rochelle

Sunday, September 11, 2016

purchased by meaffiliate link
I'm adding a another new segment to my blog to see if you like it. I am just polishing a color of my nails and calling yet Nail Color of the Week. I see so many gorgeous nail colors on Pinterest and want to be a part of that.

This week's nail color is Rochelle by Julep Maven, a stunning aubergine color! I have had this for quite some time it was part of their box that they mailed each month, but I discontinued that subscription a year more ago.

This color is perfect for the autumn months. With colors changing and the hillside a scrap quilt of reds, browns, oranges, and yellows you might just see this shade in the mix. This purple leans towards red and I can just see leaves this color if conditions are right.

Here is Rochelle:

Plan With Me - Iced Coffee

Friday, September 9, 2016

purchased by meaffiliate link
I had planned to start a new segment today where I introduce a lipstick and polish that matches. But I have a crack in my lip and I don't think anyone wants to see that. So I am just doing the post for the Plan With Me that I videoed yesterday.

I have a new spread called Iced Coffee that includes glitter boxes! They look great! I have wanted to do a glitter boxes for some time. But just didn't know how to make them. I bought them and they look just as good.

Iced coffee is a blue and brown spread with several patterns of stickers. I am drawn to this because blue and brown is how I have had my house decorated before. When I was single, everything was in pastels. But it's not fair to a guy to have a pastel house, right?

I think you like the combinations of patterns that you can make with the stickers provided in this kit. As you can see, I did the MAMBI Happy Planner and the Erin Condren Life Planner differently using the same kit.

Just a reminder, that these stickers come in both the sizes that will fit the MAMBI Happy Planner and the sizes that will fit the Erin Condren Life Planner

I have a new shop at You'll find this kit there.

Nail Art - Owls

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

purchased by meaffiliate link
I finally filed my nails, on my swatching hand, down to match the two that I had broken. I haven't had short nails for some time. It feels weird.

But there is a bonus. I have wanted to do an Owl design for quite a while. I have tried it with long nails but it just looks funky. They look tall and skinny and all out of proportion.

I am pretty happy with my first attempt at nail art on short nails. Well I take that back. When I first started blogging and doing nails I kept my nails shorter. But it has been at least a couple of years that I have been keeping my nails longer.

These little owls are pink with a softer pink belly and brown dots, brown ears, and a yellow beak. The nails are polished with a Morgan Taylor polished and the rest is done with acrylic paint, a brush, and a dotting tool.

I am really excited to show these to you. Without further introduction, here they are:

Plan With Me - Surprise Spread - Fall Foliage

purchased by meaffiliate link
I am just as excited to introduce this kit to you as my first Surprise Spread! I think it is just beautiful. Surprise Spread is what I'm calling my new planner sticker club. It introduces a surprise new kit each month for purchase as part of a monthly subscription. These kits are offered at the same low price as my other week-at-a-glance kits, $16.95, but include two extra sheets of stickers! (For a total of 10 sheets of stickers!)

September's kit is called Fall Foliage. This kit is very flowery and features colors that are not usual for fall, i.e. browns and tans. It has flowers teal blue, wine red, rust orange, and butter yellow on a soft black background.

This Surprise Spread will be available for pre-sell until Sunday, September 11th at midnight. Because I work alone still I will be accepting a limited number of people to the club so that I can get orders out in a timely fashion. So order your kit early before the limit is reached. If the limit is reached before midnight on September 11th then the pre-sell will be closed.

I have prepared a layout in both the MAMBI Happy Planner and the Erin Condren Life Planner and one with and one without the the "to do" stickers in place so you can get a better feel for the spread's beauty.

Just a reminder, that these stickers come in both the sizes that will fit the MAMBI Happy Planner and the sizes that will fit the Erin Condren Life Planner. They are available in my online shop at

Without further announcement, here is the September Surprise Spread:

Nail Art - Saran Wrap Design

Thursday, September 1, 2016

purchased by meaffiliate link
It is hot today. In fact, it has been hot all week. I have had a hard time staying motivated. I have just wanted to find ways to stay cool.

I finally got my Nail Art done today. I have never done a Saran Wrap design before. So I thought I'd try one today. I polish my nails a light pink and covered them with a quick drying top coat. Then I polished the darker pink over that and swished it around with the Saran Wrap.

To decorate it more I outlined down the middle finger with light pink acrylic paint. I am happy with the way it turned out and glad I tried it.

Here it is:
