Happy Monday!

Good morning!

So, I have plenty to show y'all this morning. I've been dealing with an old shoulder injury from a car accident 11 years ago, that makes it painful to sit and blog, among other things, but I wanted to get this done. Here goes!

Let's start with last Thursday, St. Patrick's Day. I had bigger plans for this mani, but didn't have enough time for them lol. I ended up with just a super bright, green mani. Polishes used were China Glaze I'm With the Lifeguard and Can I get an Untz Untz?.

Last week was full of green manis :P I totally bailed on last Wednesday's #watermarblepracticewed prompt, clovers, because I just couldn't get it to work. Not sure what my problem was, because I tried to stamp after that, and that wasn't working for me either! I said fuck it, and left my beautiful green base as it. It was nine zero lacquer's March 2016 PotM. 

How beautiful is that polish?! That maker makes some gorgeous colors!

For last Tuesday's mani, I used a more teal base than a true green, China Glaze Keepin' it Teal. I stamped over it used an image from Bundle Monster H04 in MdU gold.

Last Monday's PAA Mani Monday prompts were St. Patrick's day and/or make it sparkle; I did both, and loved what I did. I used Zoya Tomoko for the make it sparkle prompt. Morgan Taylor Later Alligator was stamped with Messy Mansion mm04 in MdU light gold for the St. Patrick's prompt.

Last Sunday's mani was another that I impressed myself with. It was a combo mani for two IG challenge prompts, shamrocks and mosaic. This is what I came up with. The mosaic base was created with OPI Color Paints-

Landscape Artist
Indigo Motif
Purple Perspective
Turquoise Aesthetic

I sponged those over KBShimmer Pt. Young Thing. I used the full nail shamrock image from Messy Mansion mm04 in MdU black.

The previous Friday's 40 Great Nail Art Ideas mani was post, so on that Thursday's mani. It was another IG challenge, favorite animal. My camera freaked over how bright my base was. Like, it shows it lighter than it really is, but I didn't want to try to adjust the color. If you love neons, you need to grab Morgan Taylor's neons from 2 summers ago, because they are fab!

Okay, so my base color was Don't Worry, Be Brilliant, with no white undie. My favorite animal/s are cats. I love cats <3 All the images I used are from the Furry Best Friends plate from UberChic in MdU black, then matted with Matte's a Wrap.

The #watermarblepracticewed prompt that week was green diagonal stripes. OPI Alpine Snow for the white base, and My Twin Mimmy and I'm Sooo Swamped for the water marble.

And, last but not least, another IG challenge prompt. This one was clothes inspired. I've seen bold, geometric prints and jewel tones used quite a bit lately, so that was my inspiration. The base color is Colors by Llarowe High School was Rough, Man. Stamping was from Sugar Bubbles 021, in MdU white and neon blue.
