Monkey See, Monkey Do--Monday!

Hi Readers! This Monday starts the Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday mani's!  As you know I did this for 2 weeks recently and what can I say some of my nail polish friends liked the idea so much they asked me if they could do it lol!  I mean of course I said yes because it's so much dang fun--plus we all know Kristin has a huge crush on me (you know you do Kristin!)  It's a simple concept really see a design out there on another blog, on pinterest, or just the internet and recreate that mani.  I knew the second I saw this mani by Smashley Sparkles I had to do this!  And thanks to her I HAD to have ALL the new Take Wing Color Clubs.  It's my first and probably last Color Club collection lol!  I'm not usually one for the entire collection but this one is AHmazing!! Glass fleck finishes Readers--yes you heard me THEY ARE ALL GLASS FLECK FINISHES!
I'm not going to lie this was not easy to do.  The first time I tried it MAJOR FAIL.  I was hacked off and then shocked trying to figure out how on earth she got the polishes to spread.  I gave up walked away for an hour but came back and tried again and BAM this is what happened!
Holy Hannah do you see this???!!!! This is the most AHmazing, gorgeous water marble EVAH!
It's so sparkley!!!! Look at the right hand!
And as usual the thumbs turned out great!

  11. Hi Laurie - just wanted to say that this attempt at the water marble came out awesome! I love reading your blog so much - you are so entertaining, and I love all the manis you create. I just bought my first Konad set with a bunch of plates and I am SOOOO excited to try it out (although like you, I don't have the greatest confidence that it will turn out well..lol), hopefully I will get lucky and get the hang of it quickly. Thanks for posting so often - you crack me up with some of the stuff you say. P.S. I have a cat that looks just like Baxter - his name is Cosmo! :)

  14. Also, would you be ok with it if I jump on your Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday bandwagon? It sounds fun, and I think I will probably get to post more manis that way. :)
