Crumpet's Nail tarts TPC Aug #4

Hey everyone!!  I have been having some serious problems with my blogger account so I haven't been able to post.  But today I clicked on it and it seems (for now) to be working properly so I figured I'd test it out by writing a little post.  For today I will show you my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th manis for the tri-polish challenge since I didn't get to do post for them.  This months colors are red, yellow, and green and I chose to use
Zoya-LC, Josie, and Pippa for the colors.  
Here are the manis



As you can see I have been experimenting with the cropping of my photos.  I haven't quite decided what I like best so  expect some variations at least for a little while longer!!  Don't forget to check out the other great designs for this challenge!! Until next time...

NPC-Untried

Hey everyone!!  Thanks for stopping by!!  For today we have to use an untried polish in our collection for the nail polish challenge.  I usually dedicate Tuesdays to untried polishes but I have tons so this is a good thing!!  For today I am going to show you a new polish I received from 
Too Cute-icle.  If you haven't checked out her polishes I highly recommend you wait no more!!  You can check them out here!  Today I have SPF from her Summer Fun Essentials Collection.  This collection is great!!  Fun colors with a little shimmer for the summer sun!!  Here is how it looks

And here it is with a little nail art

I've been seeing this technique quite a bit lately and thought I would give it a try.  They are calling it waterfall.  I'm thinking maybe I should check out a tutorial before I try it again!!  The other 2 colors I used for the art are also from Too Cute-icle.  They are Beach Blanket and Sexy which I will be showing off here in the next few days!!  Until next time...
