Mint Green Glitter Fade

             Spring is finally here! Well, Spring has been here but the spring weather is finally here. And in honor of that, I decided that I wanted a light and bright color for my nails. I chose Essie Mint Candy Apple for my base color, which is a gorgeous mint green that leans slightly tiffany blue on me. I loved the color, but felt like my nails needed a little more pizzaz, so I decided on a glitter fade. For the glitter I used Orly Tiara, which works wonderfully and doesn't explode on my nails so I can actually get a fade effect.

28 Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.
                                    Isaiah 40:28

Pink Leopard Mani

          OPI It’s All Greek To Me is probably one of my favorite polishes, not to mention the polish that got me interested in nail polish in the first place. It consistently surprises me how much I love this polish. It’s just phenomenally gorgeous. I wore the polish for one day and didn’t want to take it off even though I had the urge to paint my nails again. So, I compromised with myself  and decided to do some nail art with my Konad stamps. I used Konad Black for the stamping and Zoya Shelby for the accents.  I am in love with this mani!

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it;
                                             Psalm 24:1

As I begin this blog, I want to keep the mindset that these wonderful polishes have been created by gifted people, and it is the Lord that gave them this gift. Nothing on the earth is ours, we are simply stewards of what is God's.
