Celebration with Cupcakes

Its Stamping Sunday! This particular Sunday we are all doing designs to help Beth's (Debbie's daughter) birthday. I decided to do a cupcake, polka dot, and stripes design.

Rightie is making an appearance because I like the chocolate cupcake. I started with a base of Sinful Colors Easy Going, a very light pink creme. On my index fingers, I stamped cupcakes using Cosmetic Arts Sky High, China Glaze Mahogany Magic, and plate BM14. On my ring fingers, I stamped polka dots using Sky High, Konad Yellow, Sally Hansen Raspberry Race, Wet n Wild Lavender Creme, and plate BM19. For my pinky, I stamped stripes using the same polishes as the polka dots and plate BM20. To add the finishing touch, I layered a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust over each nail.

Sinful Colors retail for $2 at Walgreens (online/in store) and Target (in store). Cosmetic Arts retail for $2 at Ross (I'm unsure where else they are sold, if anywhere else). China Glaze retails for $5-10 a bottle at Sally Beauty Supply, Ulta, and various other stores/sites (Fairy Dust is Core collection, while Mahogany Magic is from the Colors from the Capitol Collection). Konad Special Polish (for stamping) retails for $6.80 on their website. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri retails for $3-5 at Walgreens, Walmart, Riteaid, Target, and Ulta. Wet n Wild retail for $1-2 at CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Ulta, and many other stores, all of which are listed on their website. BM stamping plates are part of a 21 piece set that retails for $18 on Bundle Monster or their Amazon store.


  1. Oh, I thought you free handed the stripes and dots and wondered how you did the gradient. I see now. I love it.

  2. this is adorable, and now I want cake..

  3. This really is adorable! I love the gradients in your stamping. Very sweet manicure :)

  4. So cute! I have a question about your page: How do you get the little bottles of polish to appear in the icon instead of the e blogger symbol? I haven't figured that out yet.

    1. If you're on the new blogger interface, go to Layout. You should see a box at the top for Favicon. That is where you upload whatever little picture you want to appear.

      Hope that helps! :)
