Mani Monday - Valentines

Valentine's Day is THIS Friday! Crazy! Wasn't it just Christmas? 
For the occasion I decided to do a Valentine's Day Manicure!
I have seen manicures with mini punches and decorative sissors 
and well being the crafter that I am I definitely have those so we went with it!

 Yes I realize this looks like A LOT of polishes for my rather simple mani!
First I put on Essie's Ridge Filler, and then I put on Gelous (the one with the green top) that I got from Sally's Beauty Supply. It is supposed to turn any manicure into a gel mani with just this basecoat! I am hoping that is so since I need this to last till Friday!
Then Sally Hansen's Silver for a base
Then the China Glaze for the red hearts.

 I punched packing tape (cause it was all I could find) with the heart punch, put it over my nail and let dry a bit but not completely then carefully removed the tape.

  I think it turned out quite cute! I already received a couple compliments from my students today!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
