Blue Sparkles

Hey everyone! For this Friday I kept it simple yet glittery.  I used a blue base by Color Club that I don't know the name of (help?) and 2 coats of Orly Angel Eyes.

 Here's a better view of the holo-y goodness in Angel Eyes.
 Happy Friday <3

Nail Sauce

Hey everyone! I finally got my hands on Frost My Tart made by the talented Felicia over at Nail Sauce. Frost My Tart is supposed to resemble the frosting on a strawberry Pop-Tart...I think she nailed it, what do you think?
It went on so amazingly is 2 coats with SV topcoat.
*Excuse my index, I have no idea what was going on there!

 and here's a close-up so you can see the glitter better. If you plan on getting this make sure you can stalk her for updates on when she's going to re-stock.  It took me forever to finally be able to order sells out as soon as she posts it!
Happy Thursday <3

Saran Wrap Mani

Hey everyone! I finally tried the Saran Wrap method today. 
 I used Creative Fantasy (another one from the new China Glaze Cirque du Soleil Collection) and Sally Hansen No Hard Feelings.
 Here are some swatches of Creative Fantasy on her own first.

I kept it safe by using a lighter shade of purple ;)
*excuse some of the cleanup*

Happy Wednesday <3

Igniting Love

Hey everyone! Today I have another color from the China Glaze Cirque du Soleil Collection.
Igniting Love totally surprised's one of the best creme polishes I have ever applied. It went on so smooth and easy and could have probably gotten away with 1 coat.  At first glance I feel like it's a coral red but then my husband says it looks like "neon red" and I think he's somewhat right! What do you think?
*It's a lot brighter than the pics show

Happy Tuesday <3

Holo Goodness

Hey everyone! I finally picked up Orly's Miss Conduct!  I ended up loving it way more then I thought I would.  
Here's 2 coats, not top coat.

 and then of course, as soon as I stamped over it I knew I shouldn't have.  This one deserves to be left all alone in her holo goodness.  Click to see how I covered up...

Blue Dots

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I wasn't in a very Thanksgiving colors kind of mood so opted for something totally different today.  And yes, I chopped my nails down....I  had a break so they all had to go.  
I used Sally Hansen Green Tea and China Glaze Splish Splash

 Happy Thursday <3

Glittah in my Milk

Hey everyone! I managed to get my hands on It's a Trap-eze! from the new Cirque du Soleil Collection by China Glaze.  There's a few that I want from the collection but I had a feeling this one would be hard to get later so I snatched it up right away.  
This is a milky white base with a TON of glitter!  It's so unique for China Glaze, I don't think they've ever done anything like this before. To be honest, I can't think of any popular lacquer company that's done something similar.  The only other times I've seen a polish like this is if it's an Indie.

 It's like confetti on your nails! 

Happy Wednesday <3

Mixed Mani

Hey everyone! I love a mixed mani and today it was time for another one.
I believe the turquoise is Color Club Age of Aquarius (it doesn't have a label). The purple is Sally Hansen Lively Lilac and the glitter is Color Club Sugar Plum Fairy...which happens to be a very thirsty's still grainy after 2 coats of gel top coat!

Happy Monday <3

Coffee Date Part 2

Hey everyone! Today I was finally in a Fall kind of mood (I know I'm a little late) so I opted for a darker shade.  Here is 2 coats of China Glaze Foie Gras no topcoat.

 I then added 2 coats of XOXO Nails Coffee Date.

Happy Sunday <3

November Ipsy (MyGlam)

Hey everyone!  I got my first Ipsy (formerly Myglam) bag and I love it!
The bag for this month was chocolate colored with a gold zipper.

First up is Benefit They're Real Mascara.  I love this mascara for lengthening but didn't seem to do too much for me as far as volume goes.  Still gets a thumbs up from me!
Next is Starlet Cosmetics Intense Eyeliner in the color Chocolate.  I don't use eye pencils very much but like this color enough to give it a go.  

Polish was included too which I'm always happy about!  This is Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Millionaire. Its full of gold and teal-ish bar glitter.

I had a volunteer swatcher for this :)

This next one is my favorite out of the bunch. bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss.  I love the color, the brush, the size the texture...everything!

Last in my bag was theBalm Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow.  This is a a perfectly pigmented brown for me.  theBalm always has the best packaging...isn't this adorable?

Happy Saturday <3

Unicorn Clouds

Hey everyone! I felt like doing another cloud mani today and this time it reminds me of unicorn clouds :)
  These pics are not picking up the true colors of this mani but here's the best I could capture.

I used 1 coat of China Glaze Innocence  as my base color then used China Glaze For Audrey for the first cloud and Sinful Colors Hottie for the second.
 Happy Friday <3
