NOTD: Tronica Water Marble #2 (Easter Pastels) + Matte Magic & Tutorial

First a side note - just finished watching American Idol - anyone have a guess on what Jennifer Lopez had on her nails?  I was editing pics & stuff so I only caught a couple of good looks but it was sparkly purple and seemed like it matched her dress almost exactly, very pretty glitter.  There should be a website all about what people on TV have on their nails LOL I swear I would check it all the time because I often find myself wondering.

On to the nails =)  This is the second water marble that I've done with colors from the China Glaze Tronica collection, and as much as I loved the first one, I love this one more!  Base was Wet 'n' Wild French White again, marbling done with Electra Magenta, High Def, & Laser Lime:

I intended the design to be straight on for all of them, but especially dipping 2 nails at a time I didn't quite manage it.  Favorite nails are left middle, index & thumb - and one of the most crooked LOL, right ring:

I'd had it on for 2 days already, so for tomorrow the 3rd day I added Matte Magic when I came home from work:

Here is the tutorial:

More Easter tutorials coming =)  Thanks for reading.

NOTD: China Glaze Unplugged + m72

I'm not sure how I feel about this stamping ... I started with China Glaze Unplugged, which is just chocolate goodness with a golden shimmer, then I stamped the tips with Misa Ghetto Fabulous & Konad plate m72.  The tip pattern on this plate is one of my favorites, but it just turned out so subtle ... but on the other hand, I don't like any of my other options either LOL.  White would have shown more but been too harsh, and I don't think a chrome gold would have gone with the warm golden shimmer of Unplugged.  Oh well - it was only for a day:

I've got a gorgeous spring/Easter water marble to show you guys, again with the Tronica collection, so stay tuned for that tomorrow =)

Conservatory Pics

Yes, it was all the way back in February that we went ... sometimes choosing from this many pics is just so daunting that I end up procrastinating. But I finally went through & chose my favorites to share with everyone =)
First of course was lunch at Keys - I don't remember exactly what most of this was, but it still all looks delicious:
And now lots of flowers!  Enjoy:

Thanks for reading!

Guest NOTD: Savvy Blush + Maybelline Jewel's n' Berries

I think this is really soft & pretty - Mom started with Savvy Blush, which is not one of my favorites on it's own because it's just a watery, clear pink color - but with Maybelline Jewel's n' Berries sponged on the tips, it makes the perfect base color:
