It’s me, Mario!

Happy Friday everyone! I’ve got a fun filled post for you today. First I’d like to remind you that there is still time to enter my giveaway. Check it out here for a chance to win the Oh My Golly Crystal Sand collection.Β I had a very exciting week last week after I put up the info for my giveaway. I was contacted by Kimberly who is the General Manager and Product Developer for Ming Mei Cosmetics who makes the Oh My Golly and Klik polishes. We talked on the phone and she told me she loved my blog and she was so happy that I liked their polishes so much and she wanted to send me some more for giveaways and/or reviews. She was super sweet! So a few days ago I received a box in the mail and my jaw dropped when I opened the box and saw what all she sent me. Let’s just say that I’m excited and I’ve got lots to show you guys!

On to the nails! As I mentioned on my FB page, my sonhas been nagging me to do some nail art of his favorite game which is Super Mario, Mario Kart… Basically anything Mario. So I finally went online and found some pictures and gave it a whirl using several of my new lovely polishes byKlik/Oh My Golly. I think they turned out cute. When my son saw them he said “Ooooh. Great job!” so the effort was worth it. πŸ™‚ What do you guys think?

As a base color I used Oh My Golly Atlantis. I thought about using a lighter blue but Atlantis was calling my name and I had to try it. It’s so pretty on it’s own. It’s almost a one coater and dries so fast. Isn’t it gorgeous? I can’t wait to try this with glittery tips!

Here’s a break down of what colors I used. On my index finger for the star I used Klik Mango Shake and Oh My Golly Black Out.

For the Goomba on the middle finger I used Klik Cocoa (Dk. Brown) and Klik Kofi (Lt. Brown) and Oh My Golly Black Out for the details.

I saw the design for the mushroom on the ring finger online somewhere a long time ago and it stuck with me. Not sure who the idea came from but it’s definitely not mine.

That being said, I used Oh My Golly Salsa, White out and Black out for this adorable mushroom.

For the bomb guy (if my hubby was here he could remind me of theactual name of this character) on my pinky I used Oh My Golly Black Out,Klik Ashley, Oh My Golly White out andKlik Mango Shake. I sealed everything with a coat of Oh My Golly Colorless.I used a nail art brush for most of the art and a dotting tool for a bit of it too.

I hope you guys like these and that you have a great weekend!

Free Handed Chevrons

Have you ever had an idea in your head for a mani and the colors picked out and execution planned then once you sit down to work everything changes? That’s what happened here. I pulled out tape, scissors and chose my colors and the order they were going to go in for a tape chevron manicure and then I ended up frustrated just trying to work with the scotch tape so I grabbed my nail art brushes. Then once I got started with the mani I switched the order of the colors.

I started with two coats of Oh My Golly Bikini then used a nail art brush and Caronia Gold Rush to add the angled lines and filled in the tips. Lastly I took my striper brush and Sinful Colors Black on Black and added the black lines. It’s not my usual style but it is growing on me. I did these on Saturday afternoon and I’ve gotten several compliments on the look. I think the colors make it pretty flashy. What do y’all think?

Sparkly Skittles

Hello to all my new friends out there. I’m so happy to have you. Thank you to everyone who has entered my giveaway. If you haven’t done so yet then you ought to. πŸ™‚ Who can say “no” to FREE POLISH?!?! I’m excited!

I decided on a skittle mani today because the lovely Marta of Chit Chat Nails is constantly coming up with magical combinations and I’ve been inspired to have a go myself. I like what I came up with. What do you think?

I used 2 coats of Oh My Golly Jive on the middle finger and thumb and added some BPS rhinestones. I used 2 coats of Jocarste 36 on the ring finger and stamped with Jive. On my index and pinky I’ve got 3 coats of Miss Beauty Diamondmax #8. You can’t really tell by the photo but there are tiny holographic bits in the mix of glitter. So sparkly. Here it is in the sunlight.

Whimsical Gift

I have had Revlon’s Whimsical on my lemming list for over a year and The Shutterbug surprised me with it as my birthday gift. Needless to say I was excited! I may have done a happy dance. πŸ™‚
I thought about how I wanted to wear it and decided to go with Sansan Sea Green as the base color and layer Whimsical over that. I love it! What do you think? I included swatches of Sea Green by itself too.

Have a great weekend y’all!
