Hello lovelies!

Blogger Takeover time! Are you excited? Rhetorical question because the answer is always yes 😛 This week I’m handing the reins over to Ashlee from Painted Nubbs! Ashlee always puts together some of the best stamping manicures and I especially like her posts about indie polishes. So, enough of me…onto the nails!


Hi guys! Im Ashlee from Painted Nubbs, where we do lots of stamping with other types of nail art and some swatching thrown in. This is my first guest post and I was very honored when Marisa reached out asking if I’d like to participate.  And I thought what better way to show my appreciation then by trying to recreate one of her designs. I was scrolling through her IG when these adorable octopi jumped out at me.

I started out with two coats of LynBDesigns Okay? Okay, please excuse my bottle. It was made with one of those defective white batches but that doesn’t effect the polish. I then used lilac paint for my little octopuss babies. Their eyes and mouths are China Glaze Foie Gras. I also tried to add some air bubbles but they didn’t come out how I wanted.

Even though my skill isn’t up there with Marisa’s I’m actually really happy with how these came out. I have next to no free hand abilities so these are an accomplishment for me. I hope you guys enjoyed my rambling and my attempt to step outside my box. Once again, a big thank you to Marisa for reaching out to me and allowing me to do this. Have a great day!



Gah, these look incredible! I love seeing people’s recreations. Thanks so much Ashlee 😀  If you’re interested in seeing more from her make sure to follow the links below:
