Purple Stars

For my current manicure I used the Nubar "Foundation Base Coat", then 2 coats of Morbid "Bright Lavender" on all nails except the ring finger where I used 2 coats of Hard Candy "Rumor Mill". Then I used the stars and arrows pattern from the BundleMonster plate BM20. I stamped with Hard Candy "Rumor Mill" on the nails that were painted with Morbid "Bright Lavender"  and since the Morbid "Bright Lavender" didn't stamp as well, I decided to use China Glaze "Light As Air" to stamp on the nails painted with Hard Candy "Rumor Mill". To finish it off I used the Seche Vite "Fast Dry Top Coat". Check it out below!

Jesse & Joy Concert

On June 13th I went to see Jesse & Joy (a Mexican Pop Duo) in concert here in Puerto Rico. Some video clips from the performance can be found here and pics here

They are amazing!!! One of my favorite videos from them is for the song "Chocolate" 

If you know about them, you probably also know about "El Pato Juan" a rubber ducky that always travels with them and is on stage during their shows ( :)

So "El Pato Juan" & the song "Chocolate" where my inspiration for the manicure I wore for the concert :) Check the pic below!

- I used Bettina "Brown" on all the nails except the ring finger where I attempted to hand draw a ducky.
- For the ducky I used China Glaze "Happy Go Lucky", Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "Black Out" & Orly "Sol Cabana".

I hope you liked the manicure and I have inspired you to check out this amazing band!!! 

Thanks for looking and Happy Lacquering!!
