Monkey See, Monkey Do!

Hi Readers! Welcome to the weekend!  Anyone have big plans?  On Sunday I'm getting together with my family for our annual corned beef and the trimmings dinner.  I always cook the corned beef and my little sister cooks the cabbage, carrots, potatoes and parsnips (yes parsnips! that's our non traditional twist on it I guess lol).  This year my folks are here instead of in Florida and my dad is THRILLED to be able to get in on the corned beef action!  We're going to have a game night of Guesstures again so I can only hope to get out of that one unscathed!
Even though I've had some way cool mani's the past couple of days I'm really just a novice stamper/nail artist.  I've been doing this for a year now--stamping that is and I still have a lot to learn.  You already know some of my idols are Carolina from Colores De Carol, Cris from Let Them Have Polish, Kayla from Kayla Shevonne, Sarah from Chalkboard Nails, and of course my internet daughter Rebecca from Rebecca Likes Nails.  I, not too long ago, discovered my blog crush which is nailXchange.  She pretty much blows me away!  I love all her ideas, all her color combinations, and her nails are freaking perfect.  It's sickening actually lol!  I love a love/hate relationship with her much like Kayla but with her it's the polishes she always seems to find.  When I first saw this post I feel in love with Sephora Moody Woman and then was hacked when I discovered oh hey you can't get it in the states.  So thank you Google when I discovered Missha HRG01 is a dupe for it!  You can't get Missha in the states either but that didn't stop me from buying this baby on ebay!  It's really gorgeous a nice metallic light green to blue duochrome.  Today I've recreated nailXchange's mani AND I made a matching ring of it to boot!
There's the mani, here's the pretty ring!
I managed to take a shot of this in the natural light of the living room (rainy day outside today) so you could see some of the beauty of the blue coming through.
See that priority box up there in the corner??? That's my order from Dollar Nail Art which means more foils woot!  Be prepared to see some of those in the near future!
I really like this mani alot.  It's not a BAM in your face like my last two, it's just a straight forward simple mani that's really pretty.  To get this look I did 2 coats of HGR01 and then stamped with Kleancolor Black using RA-109.

I hope whatever plans you have for the weekend you have fun doing them!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!
