Stop. Stepping. On. My. Hyacinths.

Hey look, I have a blog now! Remember when I made that tutorial video like three months ago and said this was coming soon?! Yeah, sorry about that. I guess I should work on more tutorial videos next but for now, let's talk about this here blog. You guys know I love to go on about nail polish and Instagram was cramping my style. I want to share a bit more with you guys when it comes to the quantity and variety of my content. I will be getting into the products I love a bit more here, as well as sharing extra photos and maybe even a little bit more of my nail tech experience! I promise to keep it interesting for you. I know stuff like this is extremely slow going at first and it's a lot to ask anyone to take the time to read a blog these days, so thanks if you have gotten this far! I have something special to share with you. If you have been following me on Instagram you know my giveaway sponsored by Great Lakes Lacquer is coming to a close tonight and I really wanted to find a way to express my gratitude to Mariah for helping me share the gorgeous with you. Recently I placed a small order for a couple of my favorites from the April limited editions she has up right now. I chose Out Like a Lion and Stop. Stepping. On. My. Hyacinths.



I love the names and both of these flake loaded crellies, but I noticed in the description for S.S.O.M.H. that hyacinths were her favorite flower, so I found the only hyacinth looking image in my stamping plate collection and did this mani for her!



I am wearing it on my nails with a huge smile, because Mariah's sweetness and generosity toward my little account warms my heart.

The floral image is from Bundlemonster BM-715 and the Indie <3 stamp is from ÜberChicBeauty Collection 4. I reverse stamped with Mundo de Uñas White on my Bundlemonster Mini Lotus Mat and colored in with Washed in Holo, a still unreleased Great Lakes polish that is being featured in my giveaway. Little tangent on those mini mats real quick. Holy hell are they useful. I would make decals on my main mat only to smoosh them with my arm while painting or spill my dappen dish full of acetone on them. With the minis I can move them out of the way while they dry and do the dirty work on my main mat. Oh my the frustration these are saving me from...

Hope you guys enjoy my blog. I am overwhelmed by your love and support and as such, I am parkin' it right here with you nail girls. I found my people.
