#mynailsandmybag for #omd3nails Day 30

This is my last catchup post for the Oh Mon Dieu Part Three Challenge! Phew I had quite a month, but I did it! All 31 days!
Incoco Summer Dream

red by marc ecko teal bagmark ecko incoco nails

Summer Dream Incoco Nails
The bag I’ve been using recently is a ‘Red by Marc Ecko’ bag in teal. I really wanted a teal bag for some reason. So I turned to ebay and won this cute little number! The nails I did to match it are Incoco nail strips in Summer Dream. And I did an accent nail with silver studs. I topcoated all my nails and voila! A cute teal blue mani. #mynailsandmybag And since Incocos last a while, this is a great manicure to wear as my last OMD mani. This way I can wear it for a few days and chill out without having to do any nail designs at all! yaaaaaay

LOVE PINK NAILS for #omd3nails Day 18

Quickie post to catch up another prompt I missed for #omd3nails. This one is LOVE and I kept thinking ‘love pink’,  that Victoria’s Secret motto. I’m not even sure what that even means, but their marketing ploys have worked because it stuck with me! lol

Since my theme of today’s nails wound up being LOVE PINK I figured I’d do a skittles mani using a few pink polishes that I’ve been oogling lately.  These colors were sitting on my nail desk instead of being stowed on a shelf so I guess I’ve been contemplating wearing them lately.  Why not all at once? I paired them with a cute CH53 stamp from my Cheeky Summer Collection Stamping Plates.  The stamp has a bunch of cute terms of endearment and love-related words on it like HEART, SWEET, KISS and a bunch of others.  I used my Rica Blackout nail polish which always works perfect every time ! No joke. If you need some stamping polishes you should try Rica- https://www.etsy.com/shop/justricarda

terms of endearment nails love nailsI hope you like my LOVE PINK nails! I only have one more prompt to catch up on tmrw. Then on the 7th we announce our 5 winners.  eeeeee!

SHOE INSPIRED NAILS for #omd3nails Day 17

CaTcH uP pOsT! I missed day 17 SHOES of OMD3 but I didn’t wanna skip it! I’ve been wearing these shoes all summer and I really wanted to do nails to match them.  This brand is called VIONIC. Have you ever heard of them?  Their shoes are sold on QVC and in the Footsmart catalog- that’s where I first saw them anyway.  All their shoes have what they call ‘orthaheel’ technology.  Which basically means they’re like custom orthotic-quality footbeds. They’re supposed to help cure common foot ailments like heel spurs (ick that’s what I have) and can even help your posture.  First I’ll show you my nails.  Then I’ll show you my shoes.  WARNING- FEET PICTURES AFTER THE JUMP! I know some people hate looking at feet.

gold triangle nails tan and gold nailsSo the style of shoe I’m inspired by is called Vionic Maggie as seen here in Camel Patent.  I like the beige and gold combo and the little triangles are cute. Here’s a pic of me wearing them. Sorry to show you feet, but I had to!

vionic shoes(My fave way to wear a pedi this summer is to have a cool design on my big toes and then just regular nail polish on the other piggies.  This pedi is SinfulColors 24/7 which is the perfect pink!)

Wendy’s FAST FOOD NAILS for #omd3nails Day 16

Catch up post!  I missed our OMD3 FAST FOOD prompt, so here it is.  I did Wendy’s nails because Wendy’s is my fave fast food chain.  Good thing there isn’t a Wendy’s in my town, or I might never cook!!  Naaah…. I kid, I kid.    Sorta.   I love Wendy’s chili.  And with a bunch of those little packets of hot sauce mixed in!  I could seriously eat spicy Wendy’s chili every day of my life. :)

red ☛ AVON Real Red

white ☛ AVON Gel Finish Iceberg White

nude ☛ AVON Barefoot Beige

blue ☛ AVON Vibe

Holy moly! This is the last daily prompt for our OMD3 challenge! I wish I could say I completed every theme, but there are 4 I missed. Thank God we give everyone til August 5th to get caught up! It sure is hard to do nice nails EVERY SINGLE DAY OF JULY, isn’t it?! So I won’t feel too bad about missing a couple days. BTW, I’m so proud of all the entries we’ve gotten! Everyone has done such a great job keeping pace. You go girls! Give yourself a pat on the back for all your hard work and dedication.
So what’s my favorite perfume? It’s an AVON fragrance called OUTSPOKEN by Fergie. It’s my signature scent!
