Catch Up, Little Becky!

Well, well, well. Look who it is. I think I can just waltz in here, after being gone for a month, and act like nothing's changed? Do I really think that no one would miss me? That my absence wouldn't have been noted? Well, if anyone out there noticed my break and missed me, I'm sorry. But...I think I might be making up for it today. I bring you not 1, not 2...but 3 new nail designs! Let's dive right in, shall we?

This is a pretty look I achieved using Bundle Monster Stamping Plate BM14. I started with Kiss Me Here by Pure Ice as a base, with roses made of Black Heart by Sally Hansen Hard as Nails and Mahogany Pearl by Naturistics Super Shine.

This is the first of my two St. Patrick's Day nail designs. It's simple, but it's one of the first times I've used jewels on my nails. When I've tried them in the past, I always found that they would get caught on things, and end up falling off. Well, I've learned a lot since then. I've got a better top coat, and my hair is short now. Washing my hair always resulted in strands wrapped around the jewel, under the top coat. No longer! I think this is going to be a look I'll wear more often.

I used Kalahari Kiss by China Glaze as a base, and stamped the shamrocks in True Beauty by Icing using Bundle Monster Plate BM03.

Wow! This pic is really blurry! Sorry about that. This is the second of my St. Paddy's designs. I'm not a huge fan of it, for a few different reasons. This was the first time I've used a striping brush. The colors don't separate as much as I would have liked. But, it's not too bad for a first try.

I used Limestone by Sally Hansen Hard as Nails as the base, but I just can't figure out which colors I used for the rainbows. Forgive me? 

And there we have it! 3 nail designs, and we're done. 
I'll try to post more often. Feel free to leave comments to let me know what you think, and with any questions or suggestions.
