Guest Post – Rie from Nails and Noms

Today’ is the last of the Guest Post lineup!  But do not let the fact that it is last speak about it’s content 😉 I was randomly queuing these posts up as they came in, and I just HAD to have Rie from Nails and Noms as part of the lineup.  I believe that Rie and I started blogging at approximately the same time, and yet I always look at her manicures with a sense of awe and reverie! Not only is Rie responsible for probably adding the most amount of polish to my wish list, but her manicures/swatches are absolutely flawless!  Rie is also always tackling new techniques in her manicures and whatever she sets her mind to, turn out magnificently.  I am particularly pleased with what Rie chose for my guest post; nay, I’m honoured… partly because I’ve been wanting to try this yummy technique out myself 😉

Hey Everyone!

I was super thrilled when Marta asked me to do a guest post for her blog. She is one of the reigning “nail plate stamping queens” and I just love her and her blog to pieces! 😀

I decided to bust out my nail art supplies and try something I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time: Cupcake Nails!

I used Cult Nails Get It On Base Coat and Seche Vite Top Coat. But enough chit-chat from me (bad pun), let’s get to the nom-worthy nail art!

For the flower, heart and star ‘cupcake toppers’ I used pieces from this little nail decal set my boyfriend’s mom got me for Christmas. And I used little “champagne” colored microbeads by Recollections that I bought at Michael’s in the scrapbooking section. 🙂

Rie, these are absolutely delicious!!!! I’ve been mulling over which one looks yummiest and due to the fact that I can’t decide I think I may have to eat them all 😉

Aren’t these pure PERFECTION!?!? If you would like to see more of Rie’s work please check out her blog: Nails and Noms

  • I loved these nails so much I had to have a go for myself. I put my own little spin on them. Wanted to ask if it would be ok to put them on my blog? I thought I would check first as I was going to link in your blog to show were i got my inspiration from.

      @Samantha 😀 So sweet of you to ask. Of course you can blog about them 😀 When I blog, many of my ideas are in part inspired by someone else. It is lovely to link back to previous posts to show where the inspiration came from and where your own creativity took you. 😀 I’ve seen many cupcake nails before, and I hope to see yours soon 😀

  • @Marta thank you 🙂 You shouldnt have to wait long as they are now posted 😀 No where near as good as your cupcake nails though!
