Hello Ladies!

Im so sorry for not having posted in so long but my personal life is getting way overly complicated and its been rough. SO to make amends for my dopey behavior YOU WILL GET 3 REVIEWS! YAY *fireworks explode in background*

The fist is a new guest model, my sister, Alora. Im always painting her nails so its about time I show off her hands. Now for her nails I used 2 coats of Piggy Polish Envy then on her thumbs she painted Pink Jelly Fish! Yes this is her art work and not mine.. >.> So here is a close up of her awesome work!

Then we have my nails. A friend recommend I do purple..because we both love the color purple and he tolerates me when I get all giggly about my nails. So I did two coats of Sinful Colors Lets Talk with OPI gold shatter over it. I have the worst issues with purple and gold... When ever I do this combo its like the Gold gets sucked in by the purple.. it came out okay this time but not what I was aiming for.

Last but by no means least I am currently wearing Hits Artemis from the No Olimpo collection! She is a stunner ladies and gents. Im in love. She makes my nails look like rainbow steel and I cant get enough. I do struggle with Holos they take slightly longer to dry which means more chances for me to ruin them. Other than that I love HITS polish.

I will have my W7 collection within probably 2 or 3 weeks! so be on the look out for those! AND I got 2 llarowe polishes in a facebook flash sale! Im expecting HITS Ares and HITS Twist (my first flakie!)

Hey Ladies!!!

Heres my post that I promised! Today's mani is 2 coats of Piggy Polish's Etherial Thing with Jewel FX Gems on top. I was thinking about trying this for New Years but I'm planning on doing HITS Artemis instead. (New polish for the New Year) I think this polish is so cute! Etherial Thing is a white gold duo chrome. With all the color of the glitter my hands looked like disco balls! I was upset when it chipped, but I was in ceramics and I'm pretty rough on my hands. :s

I also got Nail Mail! My W7 nail polish in Florescent Green arrived (not the most creative name but I can deal) ITS STUNNING! I already did my next mani pictures to come! I was also glad to get this polish its my first W7 polish ever. Im waiting for the W7 duo chrome collection to come in from my friend Mante! (she's awesome cuz Im getting all 6 for free!!!!) Enjoy this for now!


P.S. sorry some of the pics are so bad but I am getting a new camera for xmas!!!

Russian Navy

Hey Ladies!

Well I'm finally getting around to posting. I would have last night but I was in an argument... and anywho. Here is OPI's Russian Navy. A color that is a deep shimmery purple in the bottle and yet it seems to have dried navy on my hands. At first I thought this was a subtle duo chrome but no.. once it dried it stayed Navy. So I am kinda bummed and I've already changed my Mani (pics to come later)

You'll have to forgive me I am a new blogger and quiet a clueless one. I meant to take pics of the bottle but its early and I have to get this done now because I wont have time later (and I didn't think of it till just now). This is two coats of Russian Navy. It was super runny for an OPI. I would try to get off as much excess as I could but I cant tell you the trouble it took me to clean up the outside of my nails. WARNING: this polish stains. my hands are blue from taking the polish off and my nails have a bit of a tinge to them, even though I used a base coat.

Over all the color was ok, not something Id wear all the time though and I kinda felt it was more trouble than it was worth.

Rainbow Steel


For my next mani I wanted to do something fun and colorful. A while back I ordered Cosmic from China Glaze on Ebay thinking it was going to be a favorite. Its not. Its clumpy and doesn't dry smooth even with a million top coats. So I created my own. Haha NOT REALLY. Instead I used my L.A. colors nail hardener (for some reason its black) and I layered two coats of it. So I had a pretty solid black layer. Then I took WetnWild Kaleidoscope (one of my followers mentioned this so THANK YOU!) and I put two coats of it over the black! Its so pretty it catches the light so well and I catch myself staring at it. My nails also feel hard as steel from the hardener.

Now as December moves along Ive had a lot on my plate. Im graduating on Dec.14 Im going to PA the 1st through the 8th in Jan and then I move out on Jan 17 so Ive been wanting to spend time with my friends and Boyfriend. I have wanted to go Dusty hunting for some time now but Im too much of a weeny to go alone. My best friend Erin agreed to go with me! Any one have any tips? Im a shy person and I have a hard time understanding people who dont speak english very well. This could end up being a disaster. But Im stil going to try!

OH! I cant decide what to do for my next mani! I was originally thinking to do Piggy Polish Etherial Thing with Jewel FX Gems over it. Its bright and colorful and I keep wearing dark polishes. BUT last night I found OPI's Russian Navy and ITS SOOOOOO PRETTY. and of course Im confused! Any suggestions?

"Winter" Nails

So after having to struggle to take off Lizard Belly I wasn't sure what to do next. But I did want to do something wintery. A thought popped into my head. Oh what if I did white with blue crackle or should I do blue with white crackle? I couldn't decide which would be prettier so I used my toes as testers and White with Blue crackle won. I know some bloggers dislike crackle. But for those of you who suck at art and/or don't have steady hands... *cough* me *cough cough* crackle is a simple way to do something fun and have it look cool without a lot of skill.

So I took my Sinful colors white and used two coats. I was tempted just to leave them like that, I love white nails I think they are simple and elegant, but I got out my OPI Turquoise shatter and went to town and I think they came out rather nice! Simple but effective! My sister even asked me to do her nails the same way because she liked them so much!

Im not an overly fancy girl and my nails kinda reflect that. Anyways, I might not be around for a bit, I Graduate on Dec.14th and then Im going to PA on vacation and then Im moving out of my house. so I really stressed but as always....

Lizard Belly, Need I Say More?

Hello ladies!

Well as I mentioned in my last post my boyfriend ,Chris, gave me two early Christmas presents, Artemis from the HITS collection and Lizard Belly from Glitter gal. I am in love with Lizard Belly, it is so pretty and when natural light catches it....WOW... its like wearing black fire opals on your fingernails... I took a lot of pics for this one so yea!

I have also been very busy. I graduate in 3 weeks and then Im moving out of my house. So everything's been a bit stressful. Don't be too mad at me. What I will say about Lizard Belly is that the bottle is super tiny... but Glitter Gal is fixing that. The brush also sucked. If your anything like me, you have clumsy fingers and that brush is really hard to control. Its like theres too much brush and not enough handle. BUT the color is SOOOOOOOO worth it!!!


The last two pics are shot with Natural lighting however even though they were glowing my phone sucks at capturing the radiance!

P.S. You can see my St. Bernard in some of the pics. She's a psycho dog that barks and tries to eat my hand every time I use my camera on my phone....sorry

Thanksgiving Mani!


I hope everyones Turkey day was a good one! I have been busy lately with my friends who have come home from school! But on to the polish! Once again as my guest model is my best friend Erin! On her nails we did NYC Plumberry Plaza, 2 coats, for a rich plum base then we added OPI gold shatter. I know most of the nail polish community isn't crazy about shatters, but I think every now and then they just are fun to do.

For my nails I did OPI's Warm and Fozzie, 2 coats, but then over that I put Kleancolor Chunky holo Poppy to give it a red/ green duochrome shine! It looked fabulous!

Now my wonderful boyfriend and I were just chilling after all the holiday yumminess and he said he had a surprise for me. I wasnt sure what he meant... but he gave me 2 polishes.... Artemis from the HITS Holo collection aaaannnnddd..... LIZARD BELLY!!! I cant wait to wear it! In fact thats going to be my Next mani!!! I will try to post it later today when I have time to sit down and do my nails. its so pretty, I cant wait!!!!

Enjoy the vacation!

Franken It Up!

Hey check out this FANTASTIC giveaway! I have been wanting to try to do my own frankens and talk about inspiration!

A-NA-MAL! In Water Marble!

OK Ladies...

Todays mani I like and I hate... I tried to water marble today. A process that sounds easy, but in reality its like both legs falling asleep and then having to get to the bathroom on time. It sucks. I got the inspiration from a website on Stumbleupon! My best friend suggested this website and I LOVE IT!!!

this the website that gives you all the instructions on how to go about this process. But let me tell you about my process. I first needed a shot glass. Not an uncommon thing HOWEVER. I live with in a 5 mile Radius of a Walmart, Jewel-Osco, Target, Binnys, and Meijer. NO ONE Except for Binnys and Meijer had shot glasses. Binny's however wont sell you a shot glass unless your 21. Which is totally retarded, Im 20 years old... and I couldn't buy a friggin shot glass... Meijer to the rescue! They sell sets of shot glasses and single ones! So then I came home and started to tape my nails up. This is trickier than you might think because if you don't tape them up all at once then you risk the possibility of messing up the nails you've already marbled.

Now the colors I used were: OPI Animal-istic ( a shimmery redish pinkish), Sinfulcolors- Cloud 9 (sparkly orange) and Sinfulcolors-White. If you have no clue as to why I chose these colors its because Animal from the Muppets is mostly pink, orange and some white, on Wednesday the 23rd of November the new Muppets movie is coming out and I'm making all of my friends go see it with me! OH! as a helpful hint... use solid colors... glitter spreads out in water and this makes it very sheer.

Now removal of the tape needs to be when the polish is dry but if your like me and cant wait then semi-dry is the risk you must take. IT TAKES A VERY LONG TIME FOR MARBLED NAILS TO DRY. so don't start them unless you have nothing planned for a while.

As you can see in my left hand I messed up my pointer finger and tried to use a tooth pick to salvage it. I like this mani because it gives you a chance to be creative and even if its not perfect it looks wild and cool! Just remember no one is perfect at anything the first time they do it. Practice makes you better :>

Now for my pictures I apologize. I did a really crappy job of cleaning up around my fingernails so pardon the excess! That and once again I don't have a decent camera so yea. :/ but I hope you found this enlightening! Enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday I'll try to post when and if I can!

Hellllloooo Hermes!

Well last night I fell in love, Hermes is the love of my life and I must say Im stricken with complete lust for him! He is a pearly gold color with a stunning holo effect! I catch myself watching him dace in the light. *SIGH* Hes sooo dreamy! 2 coats was all I needed to funny cover my nails! Here are my pictures. They are complete crap because I used my phone and I didn't clean up the sides. i got so excited i had to show you ladies ASAP!

On to other less drool worthy news! One Etsy a fablous website I often frequent I found a shop from a woman who makes these crazy amazing Frankens (If your not sure of what a franken is, Its a polish that has been made using other polishes, glitter, etc etc. and is not a brand name) I LOVE HER STUFF. She's selling 25 bottles for 175 and Im soooo tempted! Check her and Etsy out Im sure you'll become addicted fast!

Hello Ladies!

Hello all,
I dont have a new Mani to show you today... I haven't had time. My car died on Tuesday D: So i have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. My nails need to be done and I was thinking that for next week which is THANKSGIVING WEEKEND! I would do either Warm and Fozzie or HITS Hermes.. my nails have gotten slightly longer and I keep looking at the bottle sitting so lonely on my desk, he's screaming "PLEASE USE ME, IM TOO GORGEOUS NOT TO BE USED!"

But I cant decide. So anyone want to vote on it? Leave a comment on this post to cast your vote. Even if I do only have 6 followers dammit all you have a voice! and if by some miracle everyone votes and its a tie I'll make a final choice. Here are two pics of them:

*NOTE; THESE ARNT MINE, I borrowed them from the Internet*

Warm and Fozzie is a warm carmel brown with gold while Hit Hermes is a strong gold holo.

First nail art ever!


So I know its late but I had to share these with you! My first ever nail art! I did a tape mani and free handed some of the work. Now I am NOT AN ARTIST. I have always sucked at drawing with anything besides chalk. SO take it as it is. I had green polish on my toes so I did Christmas presents on them!

I am a total hypocrite because I hate it when people talk about Christmas before Thanksgiving. (People who put there Christmas trees or lights up before Thanksgiving should be whacked over the head with a frozen turkey!) But I wasn't about to change my polish and no one will see my toes since its getting colder out.

On my hands I tried out my new L.A. Colors Force I really like the color but so far it is not giving me a good impression that it will last. For I also tried a tape mani on this one and it got super botched. So please excuse my nails they are horrid and I will change them, probably on Tuesday if I get time.
