Earth Day Mani

Hey Everyone!! I waited too long to get these pictures uploaded and edited and now it is very late. I just about freaked out when I uploaded them and then for some reason my computer or camera or some alien force decided to delete the pictures off the camera as soon as they were done uploading. I thought I had lost them all which would have not been a good thing. It has been a long Monday and I am very tired. I think we shall get to the mani now :) 

Today is Earth Day! I love this picture. I don't have a super creative Earth Day mani but it is something. I didn't have a bunch of time to do a really cool mani yesterday but I figure I do recycle and it is very important for the environment so this mani will work lol

I started with a base of Color Club Blue Heaven from the 2012 Halo Hues collection. I love this color, I love the Halo Hues and I keep reaching for them. I first stamped with Essie Mojito Madness from the 2012 Summer Bikini So Teeny Collection. 

I used Cheeky plate CH33 for the stamping. I stamped the leaf pattern with Essie Mojito Madness and then the recycle image with a Sinful Colors darker green striper polish. 

As is the case EVERY time I wear a holo the sun was not out today. We got a ton of rain and lots of clouds so getting a picture in sunlight was not going to happen at all.

I was hoping the leaf pattern would show up more but not take over the mani but unfortunately it is really hard to see and distinguish. I need to get this multiple image stamping thing down because I have a lot of ideas floating around in my head.

The little recycle symbols are pretty cute though. 

I used my dining room light to get some holo to show through.

It isn't much but at least you can see some of the pretty rainbows.

I love these holos so much. I wish I had enough time to try and do an earth image but it was getting late when I did my nails and I knew it wouldn't be a quick design.

I really liked this mani though. I am really tired and am heading to bed so I am not redoing it tonight. Hopefully tomorrow I will see the sun and possibly get some sunlight shots.

Bruce was watching me when I was sitting at the table earlier tonight. He always sits at the table like this especially if there is an empty chair when we are eating dinner. He is such a silly boy.

That's all for now :)


  1. This is the most beautiful mani I've seen in a long time!!! Oh, Bruce isn't a Baby anymore :)

    1. Thank you my sweet Silke! Yup, Bruce is a big boy now. He isn't really a large cat though, I thought he would be bigger.

  2. Such a lovely mani! I love the stamp. :)

  3. That Sinful stamped really well! Great Earth Day mani!

    1. It did! The Sinful stripers work really well for stamping, I love using them. Thank you :)
