Orange Freestyle Challenge

It is orange freestyle day....
I chose to to start out with a gradient of light to darker orange for the base. 
Then I stamped with white and used my dotting tool to accent the flowers and add some interest. 
I then topped with China Glaze Fairy Dust. 
This is NOT one of my favorites by any means.
I am STILL in the growing out phase of POST-acrylics.
My nails are NOT even close to where I need them to be.
I am taking daily vitamins and Biotin along with my Seche Vite treatments. 
Hopefully I will see some progress soon.

Summer Challenge Dots

Today's post is for Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge
Summer Dots

For this mani I used a bunch of summery colors for the base.
I painted them with a dotting tool in little patches.
Then I took a glitter polish to "set" the colors together better.
After that I took my dotter and added various colored dots and sizes throughout my nails.
Very easy and a F-U-N way to use LOTS of pretty polishes!!

Chelsea Flower Show

I just joined a facebook group called 
Today's challenge was Chelsea Flower Show

I admit to "cheating" by recycling an old mani pic!!!
Today is a bad day for me and oddly enough I don't feel like painting my nails. 
My father-in-law passed away about 9 months ago and today is his birthday. 
If I end up painting my nails it will be for him.
Possibly hunting or fishing themed.

For this mani I used punki purple from ultra PRO 
then I stamped black zebra with konad plate m57.
Then I stamped white flowers from konad plate m60.
I added some silver and pink rhinestones.

Hope you like you it!!!
