Sinful Colors Tokyo Pearl

What a lovely frosty white this color is, and it was pretty much a one coater! I was very impressed with it. I used two coats out of habit, but I probably could have gotten away with one. It’s really a pretty frosty white. I can’t help but think it would be a great color for getting married in. It’s sat in my Sinful Colors makeup bag for months since I bought it, but I knew it would be a good purchase. I had wanted to stamp over it, but for some reason my motivation to stamp is history. I really want to do it, but then I know I have to attempt it in my little bathroom and I don’t know how well I could work on such a tiny little space.

I just took my stamping tray and laid it over the sink, wasn’t stable enough, sideways on the small bit of counter I’d have it was fine. So maybe I will try to stamp more. I just don’t know where my stamping mojo went. I apologize for not having any stamping to share for so long, hopefully now that I just measure it out and see it is possible to utilize the space in my bathroom, maybe I can get stamping again! I really want to see if that new/old Sally Hansen Insta-Dri will work for stamping as it’s really pretty! Hope you like the one photograph I took of this manicure. I basically try to never do more than 3 photographs per entry because you never know who might be on dial up. If you would like to see more photographs per entry like many other blogs do, let me know and I’ll try to get three good ones per manicure. I used to do one of the base manicure and then one of it stamped, but lately it’s been one.

Thanks for checking out my blog, I will see if I can stamp this and add an entry with it stamped, it’s wearing really well. NO chipping at all, Sinful Colors wear really well for me. Which is a good thing because I have in the realm of 25 of them. Not sure what the next manicure will be or when, but I will see if I can take more pretty photographs of it when I’m ready. I thought the skirt with its eyelets and pretty white color was a perfect background for this manicure. Ever since the one picture I took for the Def Leppard manicure I did with red and black stamped Konad m57, I have felt a little more like trying to ‘set up’ nicer photographs for you to check out.

Still no word on the house offer yet, we’re getting antsy, and ready to move. Hopefully we’re going to hear something this week. That way we can get closed and moved in there by August. I am going to set up the most awesome feminine sanctuary ever, I'll share pics of things as I get them. For now you can see this pretty Cloissonne bowl that my Step-Father got at an auction or estate sale back in the 80's:

This cool old bowl will sit on my French Provincial Desk that I will get, the white with gold trim styled, like this:

This desk style is perfect for a lovely woman's vanity and that's what I'll use it for. I can hardly wait! I know I'll find just what I'm looking for when the time is right. I have a mirror that will be perfect, but it's stuffed away in the closet for safe keeping, it will hang on the wall behind this, and then above my bed I will put up a false fabric canopy. It's going to be worth an entry to share it all when I'm done. Thanks again for supporting Nail Soup and I wish you happy polishing!


  1. Beautiful desk and I like that bowl. I've found some nice things at garage sales and at little antique shops in real small towns we've traveled through. To me using different decorative little bowls like that is better than matching sets of things you can buy at Target, etc. I have more of an eclectic style. ;)

    1. I think it's going to make my bedroom look like a fairy princess's room, especially since I am going to get a fabric canopy for my bed! I cannot wait til we are actually moving things into the new place. You never know what you'll find in a antique shop, and for how much. This bowl I think, not sure, Mother didn't know for sure, has been in my former step-father's family for awhile. Like since his first marriage. But I definitely enjoy having different and unique items stashed around my room. It makes for a more interesting environment! :D


Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your feedback!
