Hello Polish Lovers....

Today's post is very special to me :-P It's my friend Maria's Birthday.  Sooooooo HAPPY BIRTHDAY Maria!!!!!!!! Hope you have an awesome day, save me some cake :-P!

I have enjoyed blogging these few months, but the things that I have come to appreciate the most are the friends I have made, Maria is one of those special friends! She is very sweet, funny and well a MINI me, we have so  much in common it is unreal... Literally she is like my lost twin!!! If it wasn't for the TiNY age difference and that today is NOT my birthday,  I would think we were separated at birth :-P

Today's mani is dedicated to Maria!! Maria is a GLITTER lover, if it was up to her she would take a bath in glitter, sleep on a glitter bed.. drive a glitter car...probably even eat it, I wouldn't be surprised if she ate a glitter Sandwich :-P!!! So here is a mani with a lot of glitter, even though the end result doesnt look like it :( sorry Maria, I tried!!!!)

So this mani could be consider like a uuummmm Glitter Rainbow... Birthday Streamers... Fireworks... Possiblities are endless!!! These nails were very easy and simple to make, so I will call them  Nails Made Simple.......

I used OPI Skull & Glossbones which I got on sale for 2.98 :) as base then used a very very thin nail art brush to do the lines... I used all these can't remember the names, but you get the idea!!!!

Also, the concept of this mani came from a post by MaD Manis :)

That is it for today.... Once again Happy Birthday Maria!!!!

Til next time....

PS: If you have a chance stop by Maria's Page Nails Made Simple to wish her Happy Birthday :)

Goodbye To Fall ....

Hola Hola Polish Lovers....

For those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving .. hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend.. full of left overs and holiday shopping!!! For the rest of you hope you had a great weekend too :)

Today I have for you my only fall mani, so late, so its more like a goodbye to fall :) I wore this for Thansgiving, this mani only lasted about a day since I did so much cooking buahhaha :-P

I don't have much to say about this, it was quick and easy! I started with 2 coats of China Glaze III, sponged with Orly It's not Rocket Science and Joe Fresh Pumpkin, stamped with BM 04 Plate using OPI I break for Manicures and CC Gingerbread Man!

In progress......

Hope you all have a great week :)

Twinsie Friday ~ Black & White Nails

Hola Hola Polish Lovers....

Back with another installment of Twinsie Friday :) If you are new to this, my Friend(twin) Maria from Nails Made Simple and I are doing twin post on Fridays :) We pick a theme, we don't tell eachother what we are doing and roll with it!! Makes manicures fun :)

For this week we decided to do Black & White nails, simple eh?? I immediately knew what I wanted to use for this, my Lynnderella Snow Angel, I gotta tell you guys Snow Angel was NOT an Angel to me!!! I had read on several blogs that application of this polish was difficult a lil tricky and it is sooooooo TRUE!!! The formula is weird, almost like a water base and lumpy, I don't know how to explain it, but I didn't like it.

I used  BornPretty Store plate m73 with WnW Black Cream.. and viooolaaaa!!!
On to the pictures.. (My favorite Part)

Now.. here is Snow Angel by itself!!! It looks like I'm ready for a snow day or a wedding..what do you guys think?

I can't wait to see what Maria has in store for us :)

That is it for now, hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Twinsie Friday ~ Gradient Nails

Hola Hola Polish Lovers....

I have a special post today, my basically TWIN Maria from Nails Made Simple and I decided to do twin posts!! YAY sounds like fun huh? We were having one of our late night text conversations and decided that it would be fun to do these twin posts! Give us some motivation or inspiration for manis :)

Our first twin post is a Gradient Mani.... Maria picked Blue and said I should pick a color .. of course I couldn't just pick one and make it simple I picked pink and purple ( I did this because I'm trying to use as many polishes from my October bag as possible) shhhhhhh Don't tell Maria that!!!

Anyways, it was fun doing this mani, eventhough I was not feeling it as I was working on it, but after looking at it for a while it grew on me! I had lunch with a friend of mine and her boyfriend, she couldn't stop looking at my nails and didn't understand how it was done. I told her it was just a sponge and mixing colors..then her boyfriend said yeah like painting a car you mix the color to get special effect WTF hahahah

Anyways... sorry for the long story.. on to the pics!!!

I used China Glaze Ahoy!, Orly Velvet Rope & Royal Navy.. I also added some Cover Girl Godess top coat!!

Don't forgot to check out my twin Maria's page Nails Made Simple and see what she has in store for us today :)  We will have another twin post next week :) don't miss out!

Joe Fresh ~ Coral + Lynnderella Connect the Dots

Hola Hola Polish Lovers....

I'm back with my nail post :) .....

Ever since I saw Lynnderella Connect the Dots I fell in love with it, I just didn't know it was sooo hard to get!!!! After months of lemming this, I finally got my hands on it!! I was sooo excited, I felt like I had won the lottery buahhahaha ... Is it worth it???... YES I think it is.. It's very unique, I love it!!! I got a lot of compliments when I wore this.

I used Joe Fresh Coral as base which is such a gorgeous color on its own...

Im sure you all know how to get Lynnderella polish by now, so I won't go into details.. If you want some just keep an eye on her blog, she has been opening the shop lately :) and I think will be open this weekend!!!

Hope you all have a good day!!!
