Mentality-It's A Baby Palette

Hey everybody!!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by!!  I have a treat for you today!!  As most of you know, Mentality is my favorite polish brand.  Today I have their featured palette to show you.  All the polishes in this collection are jelly cremes.  They are all opaque in 2 to 3 coats.  

First up we have 
Peek-A-Boo, a pink tinted jelly creme

Second we have
Delivery, a deep blue toned jelly creme

Third we have
HopScotch, a light blue tinted jelly creme

And last, but not least, we have
Bearing, a deep green toned jelly creme

As always, I love these polishes.  They are going to be great for stamping, I think, and can't wait to try!! If you are interested in this set, or any of the other beauties by Mentality, they can be purchase here. The featured palettes are $20 shipped, super sweet, right!?!
 I have included some extra pics of some little designs I did with these polishes.  Hope you enjoy!!





Until next time...

Hello everybody!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by today!  For today we have yellow for the 31 day challenge.  I'm not a fan of yellow polish so this is the toughest color for me to work with.  I decided to go with a color block for the design.  For the colors I chose

Sinful Colors-Snow Me White, Curry Up, and Mint Tropics
OPI-I Just Can't Cope-acabana

Here is how it turned out

GOT Challenge-Yellow/Peach

Hey hey hey!!  Thanks for stopping by!!  For today we have a new design for the GOT challenge.  The GOT is Golden Oldie Thursdays.  You are supposed to use polishes that you have had for over a year.  It's designed to get you using polishes you haven't used for a while.  For this one I decided to use
China Glaze-Sunshine Pop, Papaya Punch, and Make Some Noise

Here is the design I came up with

Sunshine Pop by itself

All 3 colors sponge on together

I started off by painting a base of Sunshine Pop.  Then I used a makeup sponge to add Papaya Punch and Make Some Noise.  Then I stamped Make Some Noise on top.  The yellow made the pink look orangish but I like the final result!!    Until next time...
