What the hell is that????

Hola Polish Lovers...

I'm going to call this my BROKEN ORNAMENT MANI!!!

This was a fail mani!!!!! I had originally planned on doing a mani similar to an ornament on my tree, lets just say things didn't go as planned, however, it was late at night and I was not about to start a new mani and I didn't want naked nails either.. so what do you do in a situation like that.... JUST MAKE A BIG MESS....

Updated **** for my friend Fingers.... here are some straight shots :-P

This is what I used....

& this is the look I was going for..... Even though my original idea failed, I love how it came out :)

Hope you guys enjoy your day!!!

Wet n Wild .. new collection????

Hola :)

Hope everybody had a great weekend :)

I went to Wal-Mart during lunch to pick up some stuff for the office and I couldnt help it and had to walk by the cosmetics... and ran into this Wet n Wild Collection, I didn't snap a pic of all of them, but I think it had 6 different shades. Has anybody seen these??? Would it be safe to assume these are crackle considering what the top looks like?

I might stop after work and check it out again, but with this holiday shopping IDK too crazy out there :-P

Let me know if you have seen these before so I don't go waste my time :)

Have a wonderful afternoon

Coin Drops.....

Hola Polish Lovers... :)


Another Twinsie Friday is here, wow I cannot belive how fast time goes by! It's been a month since we started doing these twin posts, doesn't seem like that long, time flyes when you are having fun!!!!!!!

So every week right around Wednesday we start talking about what to do with our twin post, its very silly how our conversations go and how we come to conclusions on what do use and do :-P NOW.. coming up with post tittles is even funnier... Maria said it looked like she had gold coins on her nails... we went thru several diferent names until we settled on COIN DROPS... do you agree they look like gold coins??

For this mani we still wanted something festive but different and this is what we came up with.. Orly Velvet Rope with Milani Gold Jewel FX aweeeee sooooo preeettty!!!

Check out Maria's Matted version at Nails Made Simple!!!!! Can't wait to see it :)

PS: My photos were taken with my phone, what do you guys think??? My camera was fighting too much to capture the purple as usual, Maria suggested I use my phone! I was surprised how good they turned out :)

PSS: Lisa at Lisa's Nail Care Blog is having a giveaway for $250 CAD worth of ASK Comestics, check it out!!! Click HERE !!!!!

Essence ~ Vampire Love The Dawn is Broken

Hola Polish Lovers....

Hope everybody is having a great week! I'm ready for the weekend :)

Today I have a special polish to show you :) I recently received a SURPRISE (i love surprises)package from the lovely ladies at Juntas, pero no revueltas-Together, yet apart... Have I told you guys that one of the best things that have come from blogging is getting to know new people, making friends :) Well Marox is one of those special people... She was one of my first followers and one of the first to comment on my blog, which made me feel aweee soooo Special.. because at least I knew at that point somebody was reading :) She has stuck around and comments regularly on my posts... Thank you Mar :)

A while back she sent me an email offering an Aphotica gift card she had won but unfortunately couldn't use (shipping cots etc etc was more than the gift card) I was thrilled and happy she had picked me to use this card to treat myself :) I offered to send her something in exchange but she refused several times as she was not looking for anything in exchange when she gave me the card! After a few weeks there was finally something she wanted :) unfortunately I coudn't get a hold of the polish she had in mind, but I found an alternative and sent it on its way :)

Monday, I got home to find a lil package full of goodies :) what a nice surprise it was :) Nail Mail is awesome and its even sweeter when you are not expecting it!

So, todays post is brought to you courtesy of Marox, once again thank you sooooooooo MUCH!!!!

This is The Dawn is Broken, from the Vampire Love Collection! Actually when I saw this collection floating around this polish is the one that caught my attention because is very different, very unique :)  its like Mar read my mind... :)

Lately, I have been trying to get different looks by layering! So i tried one layer of Pure Ice Busted over The Dawn is Broken. it looks sooooo pretty! better in person though, I had a hard time capturing the awesomeness of the layering :-P

That is it for today, see ya Friday :)

I borrowed Santas Coats....

Hola Hola Polish Lovers...


In the spirit of the holidays I bring to you this awesome cute mani :) ... The other day I saw a post showing santa coats on Peace, Love & Polish she has been doing some super cute holiday manis, make sure to check out her blog :) THEN... my nail art expert twin Maria :-P had the awesome idea that we should do this mani for Twinsie Friday... she had to twist my arm but I agreed!!!  This mani was fun to do and I LOVED the final result!!!

I tried to make the Fur on santa's coat look 3D... which kind of worked.. what do you guys think??

Awwwwwww look poor Santa got a snag on his fur!!! (if you cant see it, its on my pinky)

& .... Santa's coats got wrinkled over night:(..... but maybe it gives it a natural look :-P

This is what I used for this mani: + dotting tools and a fine nail art brush!
WnW Black Cream, Essie Bonded, CG White Cap, Revlon Silver Dollar & WnW Color Icon White-This one has a fine brush

Well that is it for today, hope you all have an awesome weekend!!! My son and I are going to an Ornament Exchange Party tomorrow.. hopefully he gets a good ornament this year :)

I can't wait to see Maria's Santa Coats ...  check them out at  Nails Made Simple!!!

Invisible Snow Flakes :-P

Hello Polish Lovers...

This was a very quick mani, to be honest I tried 2 different manis before I settled on this one.. ugggg what a waste of time!

Anyways, I used Essence Color & Go hard to resist stamped with icy princess, these are both from some LE collection called  I love.. but I could be wrong.. Anyways,  I used born pretty store plate m59 for the snow flakes!

In the pics you cant see the snow flakes so much.. or what do you guys think???

This blue is sooo gorgeous!!!

By the way, I found these at my local grocery store (HEB).. I love that place, they carry some good stuff in the cosmetic department!!!

I also bought a mascara from this collection it ROCKS!! my eye lashes look a mile long.

Hope you all have a great day!

Catrice ~ Purplelized

Hello Polish Lovers....

Hope everybody is having a great week so far :)

I broke a nail oooohhhh the HORROR :-P I haven't had this happen to me in a while, I was going to chop down all my nails, but decided not to, hopefully my broken nail will grow fast!

Today I have a for you my FIRST Catrice polish ever :) courtesy of the Lovely Ingie at Limited Addiction Nails! Ingie and I recently did a swap, I got my package a few days and OMG she really outdid herself .. Thank you Ingie you are sooooo sweet and I loved everything!!! I'll show pics of ALL the goodies she sent me soon :) 

So, I have to say I kind of made thimgs a lil hard on Ingie as I did not give her specific polishes I wanted.. I just gave her a range of what I liked :) and put the pressure on her hehehe :-P She made some pretty great choices, it was hard to decide what to try first!

I decided on Catrice Purplelized, it is a lovely shade of purple and what caught my eye was the hidden shimmer on this polish.. there is blue, pink and maybe gold/silver its hard to tell but it looks very pretty! My pictures don't do it much justice.. its sooooooooooo much prettier in person!

These are under the lamp...

Natural light..

Once again thank you Ingie for such an amazing swap!!!

That is it for today...
Til next time
