26 Great Nail Art Idea Presents ~ Love, But No Pink or Red

Hello Dahlings!

This go around, we're offering y'all ideas for love manis,
but we're not allowed to use pink or red.
Valentine's Day was a couple of days ago,
but we can share the love on our nails anytime we want!

I did this...

 I'm sharing my love of CHOCOLATE!
I was thinking of those really fancy shmancy truffles
with real gold dust stenciled over them.  
Mr Inky is the true choc-holic in our house,
but we both enjoy all kinds of chocolaty goodness.

(I customized Dragon with gitd.)

 Think of how easy it would be to find your chocolate
in the middle of the night if it glowed in the dark?
Alas, eatable gitd does not exist.
It's fine for nails & other cosmetics etc,
but it will make you very sick if you consume it.

 Mr Inky is in Taipei, Taiwan this week
& Ciri misses him something fierce.
He keeps looking for his Paw, then glomming onto me.
Thankfully the man gets home on Monday!

 You over there Paw?

 How's 'bout behind my tail?

 Paw, are you there? It's me, Ciri.

Thanks for stopping
& please check out what ideas
the others have for you!

26 Great Nail Art Ideas Presents ~ Black & Neon!

Hello Dahlings!

This prompt of black & neon was right in my wheel house!

So I did this...

 I debated between a neon base of various colors with black stamping
& a black base with neon stamping.
I've been wanting to do more multi-color stamping,
so neon over black it is!

I seem to have forgotten to take my usual line up shot,
so you get my don't-forget-what-I-used pics instead. LOL

 Shleee Polish Black Magic
CND Sticky Base Coat

Hit the Bottle ASAP Fast Dry Top Coat

Why the sticky base coat if I'm already using peel off base coat?
When I 1st got the HTB neon stamping polishes,
I learned the hard way while swatching them that they dry really fast
& this can make transferring the image tricky.
(Michelle from HTB confirmed this for me,
so it wasn't all user error on my part.)
Wanting a good stamped image for y'all, I went to YouTube
& found THIS VIDEO that offered the tip of using sticky base coat
over your base color, but before you add stamping,
to help the stamping transfer more easily when using these polishes.
The CND is what brand I had on hand, 
(it also works for applying pigment powders over regular polish)
but other sticky base coats should work too.

 And this is where the Aqua Constellation comes in,
before applying Seche Vite fdtc.
