Stamping Sunday! Using plate ending in #3

ok so you guys saw my previous post with Barry M Indigo and I decided to add to it with Barry M Silver and do it for this post! 

  My Left Hand                                                                     My Right Hand

SH23                                                                                      M33

I don't understand why these are showing up blurry! At least you can pretty much tell they stamped what was on the plate! I can't stop looking at my hands!  What do you guys think?  Have you tried Barry M polishes?  Which color is your fav?  Don't forget when I hit 100 followers I'm gonna have a REALLY good giveaway!

Barry M Indigo!

Anyone that knows me, knows I've been trying forever to get this color! I bought it and 6 others off e-bay and they arrived this week.  OMG I LOVE IT!  So does my husband!

Up Close

Further away to let light show different shade

Stick around because tomorrow is stamping Sunday again and this week we had to use a plate ending in the #3! I knew I wanted to use another color on this so I went ahead and found some plates ending in 3 and can't wait to show you the results tomorrow!

Nicole By OPI 3 Walmart Exclusive Laqcquers 2012

 Best Pink Ever!

Nicole by OPI Launches Three New Nail Lacquers, Exclusively at Walmart

Nicole by OPI announces three new shades to be exclusively sold at Walmart, in stores January 2012. These rich shimmer and glitter hues give fingers and toes an elegantly chic look, with colors that include a sparkly champagne gold, a shimmering rose pink, and a confetti glitter.
Nicole by OPI is excited to bring three new nail lacquers exclusively to Walmart for 2012,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “Both the gold and pink hues have a chic metallic finish, but the warm-toned pigments in these lacquers are distinctly feminine. The glitter in ‘Fabulous’ is My Middle Name includes red, fuchsia, blue, gold and silver sparkles, adding multidimensional shine when worn alone or layered over either of the other two shades.”
The three new colors include:

The Gold Shoulder
A surprisingly approachable shimmery light gold.

Best Pink Ever
Seriously. This magnificent metallic pink is the best in town.

“Fabulous” is My Middle Name
But you can call me “multi-colored sparkle.”

“Metallic and glitter are currently very trendy lacquer finishes,” explains Weiss-Fischmann. “Some metallic lacquers look 3-dimensional or holographic when applied, while others sparkle from different angles, or reflect when exposed to different types of light. All are extremely beautiful!”
Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquers and Nail Treatments contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde. Nicole by OPI formulas are long-lasting, fast-drying, and salon-quality. These Walmart exclusive lacquers will be available January 2012 for $7.00 each ($9.68 CAN) at select US Walmart locations and walmart.com and in February 2012 in select Canadian Walmart locations.

Stampin Sunday!

So in one of my groups on Facebook we have what's called Stampin Sunday.  This was my first attempt at a full nail design. It didn't work well with my ring and pinkie fingers because they are bent at the knuckle so it makes it tough. It also didn't help that when I went to pick up the darker color bottle to move it I had forgotten the cap wasn't on tight so it slipped from my grip and splashed on those last 2 nails but fortunately not much at all spilled! You can look real close and tell I cleaned off the darker splash.  So anyway onto the pix:

I used SH 25 (shany) the one up top on the left.



Hopefully I will be playing more and be better as it goes! The challenge was we could only use blues. The bottles pictured are a little darker than in real life. They were against a box and the flap above flipped over and shaded it. Still setting up the studio but it's almost done! Bill put the other helmer together last night!  SOOOO excited!!!!  Have a good week all! Off to do my super bowl mani :)
