Summer nails

Hi,
 Today I'll show you two summery manicures, in spite of the bad weather here. You will see both my nails and my best friend's in the pictures below.

For my nails, I started with two coats of Avon -Pink Pearl and then, using a sponge, I applied Claire's -Funky/Fabulous on the tips. I finished with two coats of Cherimoya +/- Magnetic #19, which is a black and white mix of various shapes and sizes of sequins in a clear polish base. Simple as that, but eye-catchy. 

For my friend's nails, I started with a coat of white polish as a base for the colourful gradient. The nail polishes used for it were Avon -Inspire, Avon -Mandarin Magic and Claire's -Funky/Fabulous. Using black nail polish, I stamped the design from Cheeky's GA26 plate. I finished with a clear top coat.

And now, an extra picture of our delicious watermelon cocktails. What do you think?

Guest Post Thursday: Mani's by Moore


Hi,
It's Thursday again so we'll have another lovely guest post from Jajuana. Let's see her mani!

Hello everyone!  My name is Jajuana and I am the person behind the blog ManisbyMoore. I am so excited and nervous to be doing a guest post for the lovely Maryya. Her mani's are so flawless and beautiful! So let's get on to the mani...  
 If any of you follow my blog you know I LOVE stamping! I am not at all talented in any type of drawing so when I discovered stamping it just made my day.  Now I am so addicted and our bank account suffers from it. I also have a love for these new textured polishes. So I decided to give you a mix of the two today.      

Mani Ingredients 
China glaze Flip flop fantasy 
Nails Inc. leather effect-Noho 
Image plate-Konad m57 
Stamping polish-Kleancolor black 
Top coat-Seche vite 
Studs-bornprettystore.com      
I am so obsessed with this leather polish! I was so upset when I first saw it was $25 for the blingy set only. I am so cheap and refuse to pay that much for one polish. Absolutely not! So when I was in Sephora shopping the clearance shelf of polish I was blown away when I saw the leather polish was available without the blingy additives.  It was still a bit expensive for me at $12, however I had to have it!   
So what do you think of this mani?  Have you tried any of the textured polishes? 

If you'd like write a guest post, too, just contact me at konadaddict [at] yahoo [dot] com and we'll settle all the details.
