I am so tired and my spine is aching. I hate when my spine acts up because the pain affects everything. My posts are going to be a little skewed for a while and probably will not adhere to the normal schedule. I am probably just going to post the monthly challenges and if possible the weekly challenges as well.

It took me three hours to gear up for this one manicure, I kept laying down and closing my eyes. Ugh!

I am no longer afraid of gradients! I am practicing them so I am thrilled this is was the prompt for this week. I hope you like it!


ImageI started with two coats of Color Club Pucci-licious as my base.

I used a makeup sponge to apply a gradient (from cuticle to tip): Color Club Pucci-liciousEssie Smokin’ Hot, and Color Club Mrs. Robinson.

I dotted with the same colors in the opposite direction.


Take a look at the rest of manicures this week!


Since I am not feeling all that great I decided to use this as the base for my Bundle Monster birthday challenge as well. Today’s prompt is Love. I have a stamp that says “Love” but I decided to use the puzzle-heart shape.

I love the colors I used for the gradients and I love puzzles!

Apologies on the glue on my fingers. I used it to protect my skin from the excess polish but apparently did not do a good job of removing it!
