A rose by any other name would smell as sweet

Wow, I haven't posted anything for a few weeks now. I've been swamped with projects and papers & i had spring break. Trying to get back into the grove of things. I recently bought some nail art off of eBay and couldn't wait to do a mani with it. The possibilities are endless. I used Essie Mod Square. Its a hot pink creme. The shade of pink reminds me of Barbie. Its absolute adorable alone but i wanted to do something a little more fun for spring.I think this would have looked better with a lighter pink but i didnt have any. Oh Wells. Stayed tuned for new post about an upcoming contest!!

What I used to decorate: (all bought on eBay)
-Rubber Roses
-Leaf Fimo Cane
-Small Ivory Pearls

Leopard nails

Who isn't a big fan of the leopard print?!  For this design, i wanted something subtle but still pops & of course another reason for me to use Matte About You. :D

Maroon Butterfly Nails

Its been awhile since i did a french mani, Not exactly favorite but it will do for the time being. A few weeks ago,I got Viva La Nails sample pack. Its free-ish, you just have to pay for shipping which was bout $5 for me. First time using the nail art stickers because i couldnt think of a mani to use them for. The butterfly was a water nail sticker, so you have to soak it in water to remove it from the paper.  As i waited for it to dry before putting on my top coat, is sort ripped. :x Turned out better on the other hand but m nails are still growing out so it looks super ugly.
