It Matches

On Monday I went to a DBSA meeting and wore this shirt I decided to do a manicure that would match exactly to the shirt.  I used Essie Bikini So Teeny, using DRK-A plate and American Apparel 7th and Alameda to stamp the leopard pattern then stamped a flower on my ring and thumb as accents.  I really got a lot of compliments on it.  I think this summer I am going to challenge myself to wear patterns that match my clothes.  I have my spring wardrobe and I am now actively looking for bargains for fall.  I will tell you the one wardrobe item I just am addicted to is the HUE denim leggings.  I think I bought about seven pair all on sale of course but they are just so comfy.  I love them.  I think Nordstrom might have some on sale for like $12.00 you might want to try a pair or perhaps you have if you have maybe you can let the rest of us know what you think about them.  So, have fun with your manis this summer the colors are so pretty.  I am hearing through the grapevine that the color for fall is going to be hunter green.  I can’t wait to continue my shopping for fall.
So, it came out pretty cute.   I hope to do more of these.  Let me know if you like these kinds of posts.  I know I have some pretty exciting one coming up soon. 
Ciao bellas,

Crumpet’s Tri Color Challenge Day 3

So, this is my entry for day 3.  What I did for this manicure was a gradient using grey and blue and then placed red dots on the nails.  It was a pretty easy manicure but it was time consuming but the results look pretty good.

Crumpet’s Tri Color Challenge Day 2

Ah, this catches me up.  I did not put a picture of the polishes I was using.  I decided to the American Apparel brand because they stamp pretty easily.  They are called
From the left:  Passport Blue, Echo Park and Downtown LA.
For this manicure I painted my nails with the grey, stamped with blue and put a red bow on the top left corner. 
That is it for today, be back tomorrow with Day 3

Crumpet’s Tri-Color Challenge Colors Red, Blue and Grey

I know I am so behind and if you saw how many mani’s I have you would freak.  Last week was just bad.  I don’t know how doctors say you can have a colonoscopy and go to work the next day.  I literally slept till Wednesday and on Wednesday I still was taking Motrin for residual pain.  He did say I had the colon of a 20 year old.  I don’t know if that is a compliment.  But the worse part of the whole thing was wearing a diaper.  You know life is really a cycle you are born you know nothing, you learn that crying gets attention,  you can’t speak you have no memories, you can’t control your bowels and you sleep a lot.  Well, that is what it is like getting older.  My family has something that almost everyone lives into their 90’s.  So, I have seen, the diapers, the screaming, the forgetfulness, not being able to walk another aspect of being a child.  So, wearing that diaper was just the worse for me.  I did feel a little traumatized.  So, on Wednesday, I go to therapy and did not do anythng the whole while with no polish.  My nails broke on my right hand all of them.  I kind of got to therapy and was thinking this is such a waste of time today, usually it is very proactive but we ended up spending 15 minutes talking about Jodi Arias.  My therapist has known me for eight years as I have seen her off and on but she could tell I had taken a beating.  Finally Thursday, I was up early and did do a couple of posts but boy had gotten about four new bottles of polish and was dying to try them on.  I did get my two tri colors to catch up and tomorrow will do Tuesdays.  So,  I am going to have them just won’t be caught up until Tuesday.  So enough rambling.
I love the colors that Debbie chose for this challenge because they are solid basic colors that if they mix they won’t necessarily make some ugly brown.  I used all American Apparel Nail Polishes and did a color block.  I had never really done one that had to be precise so I was amazed at how easy it was especially being able to use the striper.  This is something I would wear because the colors go well together and I know part of the challenge is making the colors look somewhat decent and the prior colors were a challenge I just think these are great solid colors and I am still thinking, thank you Debbie for giving us an easy one this time around.
Hope you like.
