Pink Wednesday...

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Well first of all I have to say I am totally enjoying this Pink Wednesday trend, by Monday Im already thinking what to do on Wed!!
I have been wanting to try my first half moon mani, finally did it, need to practice more. I used a technique I saw on a YOUTUBE video, gotta love those ladies doing the tutorials... :)

I used Wet n Wild fastdry How I Met your Magenta & Saved by the Blue, both of these were fairly easy to apply, however, the brush on the blue polish had some crazy bristles or whatever you call them... It looked like it was having a bad hair day, maybe it needs a trim :-P... I stamped a lil flower then went glitter fishing, I love how you get that extra lil sparkle... are the pics, BTW my cam was not cooperating with me today, first couldnt focus, then the battery died, this is the best I got! Does anybody have any good tricks for picture taking??? I cant get my cam to focus well on a close up, it comes out blurry most of the time.

Hope everybody has a great hump day!!!

Til next time.....

Aqua Weekend Mani....

I'm back... had a great weekend with my lil master(i call my son that sometimes cause he acts like he is my master) ...
We went to see Cars 2, I think I was more into it than he was.. he was too busy with the popcorn he ate so much of it Im surprised he did not throw up, anyways, it was FUN

He is learning to swim, WOW im so proud of him he is an expert at it... of course with floaties!!! but he even lays on his back LOL and goes from end to end at the pool :) by 3 he might even be swimming on his own.

So looking at the blue water in pool made me want a aqua mani.. tried to make as simple as possible... So i just did 2 layers of Love & Beauty Aqua & one layer of NYX Glitter Under the Moon... I LOVE THEIR GLITTER.. here it is.. its very simple but glitter makes EVERYTHING look sooooo PRETTY!!!!

On another note, I love how glitter looks when your hands are wet, makes it shine even more.. I wish I could walk with wet hands all day :-P

Hope everybody had a great weekend :)

Til next time...

Pink Wednesday!!!! ~ Summertime

So for Pink Wednesday, in perfect time for summer, today I have Summertime from LA COLORS Color Craze collection. I bought 6 of these polishes (i think maybe more), I would say about 2 months ago and I had not tried one yet, I have to say this is some great polish for being $1.00 .. Application was amazing.. I LOVE IT! Can't wait to try the rest. I go the dot idea from a great blogger.. rebecca likes nails , I had to try it, but I changed it up a bit, I created the dots with a darker and lighter shade of pink on top of white. This mani works with any color combination.

Happy Wednesday Everybody...

Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous Dorothy!!!

Hahahah I really like the title.. wasn't intended to match but it sure worked out great....

This is one of my new OPI's topped off with 3 coats of NYX Dorothy, I was really expecting more glitter out of this polish, I was dissapointed, but I guess it still looks good. It was a mess to apply though, it was very thick and sticky! I think the Seche Vite caused some shrinkage it looks like I have tip wear already and I just did this last night. Enough of this here are some pics... sun is not out today so they are not that great!

OPI: Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous
NYX Glitter: Dorothy

Great Haul for my pocket!!!!

Happy Friday Everybody... TGIF!!!

So for today I don't have a mani to show as I was not able to paint my nails last night... I have naked hand and toe nails today...YES hard to believe!!! I typically paint my nails at night time after my son goes to bed... well he has been sick for the past few days and last night he woke up about an hour after bed and pulled an exorcist move... There was throw up all over the bed it was horrible... MY POOR BABY :(

So for today I'm going to show you a mini haul.... I'm trying to expand my OPI collection and I have to say I'm extremely proud of this purchase. Oh before I tell you about this purchase let me say that I hate paying retail price for anything... I'm not one of those extreme coupon people like on that TLC show... but I always try to find the best deals or items on sale.

I got all these OPI polishes for @ 17.00USD... Did you know JCP sell OPI, they have it in their salons... and most of the time they are buy 1 get 1 50% off... So ... thats exactly what I did.. AND on top of that I had a coupon for 10.00 off a 25.00 purchase!!! CHAAAA CHING!!!!! Enough of this rant... here is what I got :)

Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous, Koala Bear-y, Jade Is The New Black, Cajun Shrimp

I said I was not going to buy more nail polish.. but yet I can't control myself.. I have issues.... The one in the middle was a gift from my sister.. sooo sweet ... :)

Summer Peach, Let Me Go, Soul Mate

Well thats it for today.... Hope everybody has a great weekend!!!!

Underwater Gold... ♥

Hello....This is a quick mani I put together last night. I was originally going to do Essence Underwater and just do a Siver Shatter top coat, but changed my mind last minute.

I figured this pretty blue would look better with Gold. I went thru my stamps and saw one I had not noticed before nor have I seen any posts using it (Im pretty sure there is.. i just havent ran into one). I didnt do a good job with the stamping it didnt really come out as I had pictured it. I think the problem is I need special polish or maybe just a thicker polish than what I used. So here it is...

Essence: Underwater
Revlon: Gold Coin
BM 204

Colorful Ink Splatter ♥

So I said the Silvivor was going to be my weekend mani, however, one of my nails started to peel.. yes the same day I did it, I must need a better base coat who knows... Well after my son went to bed I decided to do a mani I have seen in several blogs... This is how it turned out, I LOVE IT!!!

I did one coat of white polish, then sponged the following
Essence: Wake Up, Let's Get Lost, Lime Up! & OPI Funkey Dunkey
Top it off with the Sally Hensen Ink Splatter

I was bored last night, after my son went to bed I decided to take my stash out and kind of organize it see what I have and what I NEED lol... WOW i was shocked to see how much polish I have bought lately obviously I not tried even 10% of them... SoI guess I better start painting and stop buying...

Funky Friday.....

Hello.. anybody out there LOL... So I went out of my box of this. Yesterday I went to Sally's to buy the ever so famous Sache Vite top coat, I told myself I would not buy more nail polish because honestly I have been buying so many of them and not enough time to even try them. I will say I still stop and looked at the CG polishes... oohhh so hard not to buy some! Then when I was paying I noticed the Sally girl glitter... mmmmmm I decided to buy some because I came up with an idea... so this is how it turned out..

I did 2 coat of the GREEN nail polish.. thats what is called I guess its from Forever 21, once it was dry i did some clear coat and sprinkled some glitter... First time I do this so lets say both hands do not look the same as I was trying different clear coats and it made a huge difference. I dont know if I like the Chunky glitter look or lighter... OH then of course I top it off with the Sache Vite.. which btw I LOVED....

Seeing Dots!

You can never go wrong with dots...I have been using a lot of greens lately, so i figured i needed to change it up a bit. This is OPI Steady As She Rose, the darker color not sure what is called but its a cosmetic arts polish, I cant seem to find the name in any of those polishes.. weird!

My first post..... You Belong To Me!!

So here we go... my very first post!!! I am in no means a nail polish expert... I dont know all the cool trends or how to even apply nail polish properly. Mmmm how did I get here... I was searching online for something I cant even remember what it was at this point... & I ran into some blogs! I liked what I saw and after a few weeks I decided to join. Maybe I can keep feeding my lil addiction and learn about new trends and techniques. Should all be fun!! All and All I'm just another girl who loves nail polish!!!! So for my first post... I'm testing out some Essence nail polish I picked up over the weekend, this is what I came up with. Im still learning to apply nail polish the "right" way I guess...eventually I'll get better. I'm also looking for a better top coat to make my nails shiny, so we will see what I can find.
