today i am linking up with heather and heather for the first time for mani monday to show off my new nail decals from made by munchies mama! while my toes are always always always painted, i rarely get around to painting my nails. let’s face it- as a busy mama who works whenever kids are asleep, when do i have time to paint my nails? but these decals, i’m telling you- they drew me in with their good looks and won me over with how ridiculously easy they are!
i got a mix in match pack and they arrived last friday. i happened to check the mail on the way to my friend’s wedding and was so excited to see them in there that i immediately dressed up my thumb with some gold chevron and insisted we stop at the store for some clear nail polish!
apple cider toasting with my fancy thumb!
when i finally got a chance to really test them out, the hardest part was deciding which decals to use :)
i hopped over to summer’s blog for inspiration and found this adorable double French manicure.
since i don’t have a huge selection of nailpolish (mostly neutrals if you can believe it), i attempted a toned down version of this double french.
and here’s how:
2. next i painted the tips with a metallic/glittery pink. the beauty is that the line doesn’t have to be perfect unlike a traditional french manicure because the decal will go where the 2 polishes meet. let that dry.
3. then apply the silver stripe decal just overlapping both colors. trim the ends of the stickers
4. follow with 2 coats of clear polish.
i must admit, this is way more ambitious than i EVER get with my nails, but it was really easy and super fun. i love that they look professionally done and are really fun but still very neutral.
yay for a fun new product that may need to always be in my medicine cabinet!
hop on over to made by munchies mama to pick up your own set!
i have updated the shop with a bunch of bracelets after finally getting more blanks back in stock. however, since we are moving this week, things are gong to get a little tricky around here. while i would love to think i can do it all, the reality is, i just can’t! so, i will be taking orders through today at 12:00 pm PST (that is noon today!) that will ship out first thing tuesday morning. any orders placed after this deadline won’t be shipped until after the 20th when all the dust settles.
to sweeten the pot, until noon, use the code MOVING for 15% off! go on, do it!
and now, wish me luck…it’s gonna get crazy around here!
