Sea Nymphs

I am not here.

This is a post I wrote earlier because I'm "getting the heck outta Dodge" for the day! 


These are not the nails I'm wearing. I'll post those tomorrow.

I've had this picture for a very long time. Actually, it's a card. I loved the poem and image so much I framed it. The sentiment helped me many times when I was divorced and a single mom.

HOPE is a THING with feathers
That perches in the SOUL
and SINGS the tune
Without the WORDS
And never stops at all. ~Emily Dickinson

The nails I designed are based on the colors in the art work on the card.

They've changed the design some. The smaller nails in the pack have a tab now. That's handy.


L-R: LA Colors Gold (Chunky) Glitter, Revlon Mint, Revon Gold Coin, China Glaze Going My Way

I started by taking a small piece of cosmetic sponge and sponging on Going My Way, covering and moving the french tip line down. Then I sponged Gold Coin, followed by Mint. I allowed the polishes to dry slightly between coats. When the nails were dry, I dabbed the gold chunky glitter over the Gold Coin. 

I added lacy, and flowery stickers and clear rhinestones. On the thumbs I used some larger colored rhinestones. One thing I've learned with the these stickers to use tweezers to peel them off and place them on the nails, so I'm not messing up the sticky.  The clear rhinestones were stuck to a sheet. They were a bit tedious to work with. I finally figured out it was easier to use the pointy end of the orangewood stick to get them off the sheet, and onto the nail. Because I didn't have to use clear polish to hold them on the nail, I was able to manipulate them easier into place.

I hope everyone has a great day! Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog.

See you soon!

I hope you don't mind me commenting so much. I am trying to catch up on my blog reading,and since I haven't done my nails since last Wednesday, I have some reading to do. I wanted to say how pretty these are! The nail art is so dainty and feminine!

Hi Nicky! Good to see you! Thanks for your comments. These sure did turn out swankier than I planned.

Thalie, are you kidding? I LOVE to get comments! There can never be too many comments. :D Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.

Sometimes I think I go too far with the bling. It's nice to hear from you ladies. :D
