The Golden ummm Turkey: Thanksgiving Nail Art Design

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you that, like me, decided to get in a little blog time before going into that Turkey Coma! This was one of those last minute "I need a Thanksgiving manicure" decisions. Since we are still having Fall weather here in New Mexico I chose to do a final nod to the season with a more traditional color scheme before switching into Winter mode.

The Advanced Stamping Technique: How to Make and Apply Stamping Decals

You asked for it and I delivered! I just released my latest HD YouTube video on "The Advanced Stamping Technique: How to Make and Apply Stamping Decals". It was more about the making the tutorial than the nail art this time, however the end result was this fun Halloween design I created for my Mom.

HPB Presents: A Fall Favorites Link-up

Today I have my second post for the monthly link-up of my Hobby Polish Bloggers Group (HPB) on Facebook. This group is best for the more casual polish blogger and the wonderful ladies there have been an excellent resource for me. It is a Closed group, so you'll need to send a request to join.

We held our first link-up last month with a Halloween theme and it was really fun for everyone that participated. This month we are going with a broader theme called "Fall Favorites". I've decided to use it as an opportunity to revisit the polishes I loved this Fall and the nail art I created using them, along with one you haven't seen before! Warning!! Picture heavy after the jump!

It's a milestone day for me! This is the 100th post that I have published on my blog! WOW did that go by fast! I had another design planned for today, but changed gears to something a little more "Karolyn" when I saw it was a special occasion.

Happy Landing Butterfly LeadLight Design and Video Tutorial

I am excited today to finally be delivering on a promise I made a while back by sharing a video tutorial I made on the LeadLighting technique. When I created my first LeadLight design, called Pretty Blossoms, back in May and several ladies asked me to make a video to prove that it was as easy to do as I claimed. Let's see if I can put my money where my mouth is!

Purple Negative Space Nail Art for Geometric #NAILlinkup

Creating a negative space design has been on my To Do List for far too long. I have no idea why I was putting it off since it was actually fairly easy to do and I am really happy with the way it turned out. AND, coincidentally, this week's prompt for my N.A.I.L Group (Nail Art Ideas Linkup) is geometric. YAY! I've got the design and it's on time!

Silk Stockings Stamped Nail Art Design featuring OPI

I have been really into lace nail art recently, as you'll see soon enough. The look of lace stamped over a nude nail has captivated me and inspired me to create this design. I'll try my best to space the others out some to keep it interesting.

That's One Cool Cat featuring KBShimmer Spot Sign

Have you heard about leopard glitter yet? I found out about it recently and excitedly rushed to KBShimmer to order a bottle of Spot Sign. This polish has been available for a little while now, but I think many polish lovers will be seeing it for the first time today (11-1-14) when KBShimmer releases their Winter Collection. So why the excitement you ask? Well, it's no secret that my freehand is laughable at best. Sure I could stamp a leopard print if I wanted to, but I would be more or less confined to the design. But with the glitter I can do this...
