Almost a bad day in T-Town...

Today was a good polish day! Tried a few places (Sallys, Ulta) and found NOTHING I liked. It was pretty sad. I made a last ditch effort to save my day with a trip to Marshalls. First I found some cute sandals on sale for $10.00! And then the best discovery!!! I found a set of 2 Nicole by OPI polishes for $7.99. The pink one is Fuchsia Wife, a flakey neon pink jelly, and the second is Canadian Star which is a purple/pink shimmer. I love them both! And I got my OPI Avoplex cuticle oil and hand cream for $7.99. I love this stuff!

To make the day get even better, I got some nail mail! Today I got Candy Lacquer's Afro Circus. It is a crazy mix of multi color multi sized hex glitters!

Here is a bottle shot to show off the awesomeness of this glitter!

 I had to do paint my nails to test this out!! I love the flakey jelly. BUT it needs something underneath it. I am not a fan of visible nail line. I decided to do an accent nail with Afro Circus, and it made everything all better!
After I finished this manicure, I did my toes! Same colors but each toe had an Afro Circus party on it! I am loving these colors!! Now off to the store to show off my new shoes and pedicure♥♥

I got some crazy fantastic nail mail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today I opened the mailbox to two treasures. First, I opened piCture pOlish's Monroe and the second was Lush Lacquer's Pink Panther. I did an ants in my pants dance til I figured out which one I wanted to wear first. I swatched Pink Pather and then kept Monroe on for my NOTD. 

First we have Monroe! This picture DOES NOT do this justice. This is a maroon jelly is packed with micro holo glitter. The sparkle is unreal. I caught a glimpse in the sunlight and it was love at first sight♥

Not the best picture, but it does capture some of the glorious holo sparkle! I cannot stop staring at my nails. This color is fantastic. Granted not a summer color per se, but who can pass up such a beauty?

Ladies and Gentleman, please welcome Pink Panther to the collection! Talk about packed full of glitter. We have matte pink, white, and black glitter. These hex glitters range from small to some large white hexes!

 I paired Pink Panther with Nima Ultra Pro's Blu Blaze. The blue lets the glitter pop! I love that big hex on my middle finger. The application is good, only fishing you may do is for those mac daddy big ole hexes! Yes, the description is apt. I love the look of this. Nothing makes a manicure like matte glitter.

I love both of these polishes, they are fantastic! Lush Lacquer's Pink Panther can be purchased here. I purchased Monroe from Llarowe. The site can be found here. Both are worth every penny!

*All reviews are my personal opinions. All products have been purchased with my own money.

Nail Mail!

Hello everyone!! I just wanted to post an update about some super fantastic nail mail I got!! Nothing like opening the mail box to see two packages waiting! Needless to say, I ran inside and got to polishing! My nail mail for the week included two indie polishes: Lacquer Convention's Pop Tart and nAiL'DiT's SSSNot What You Think. Also, apologies on the poor picture quality. Cell phone camera for the lose!

Obligatory bottle shots! I love the cute little labels on Pop Tart! 

Back view of Pop Tart. This polish is amazing! Pop Tart is a sheer white jelly PACKED with multi sized multi colored hex glitter! I saw this polish months ago, and when I finally had the funds, I snatched it right up!

It really makes my nails look like Pop Tarts! Because Pop Tart is so sheer, I layered it on another polish. I am not a huge fan of stark white, so for this I used Orly's Decades of Dysfunction. I used one coat of DofD and 2 of Pop Tart, finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite for the final look!

Back view of SSSNot What You Think. There is so much going on in this bottle! White and sea foam green (best description honestly) micro glitter, and multi sized and multi colored hex glitter (red, yellow, green, blue). I happened upon this entirely by accident, but knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it. 

I struggled with a color to pair this with. I finally decided on a Ross find from the other day. Its a neon green by Haute Nails. I love it because it has a blue shimmer to it and some glitter mixed in! Not bad for $1.99! 3 coats of green and one coat of SSSNot What You Think, topped with 2 coats Seche Vite. Glitter placement was a dream! No need to drag anything around!

I absolutely love these two polishes! You can find Pop Tart at Lacquer Convention's Etsy Shop here. You can find  nAiL'DiT at their Etsy shop here. These indie makers are fabulous, and produce an awesome product! 

*The above listed review are entirely based on my personal opinion and I purchased the product myself.

First Indie Polish

Today, I decided to use my first indie polish!! Truth be told, I used it the other day, but completely forgot to take a picture of it *sigh*

Just a simple look for this. We have  Orly's Decades of Dysfunction with Maisie's Bellini layered on top. Finished it off with Seche Vite to smooth it all out!

It was tough to get a true to color picture. This is a little oranger than it really is. I love it though!! Until next time ♥

I am so very excited! I have a truck load of indie polishes on their way! Okay, not a truck load, but seriously....I can't wait! Swatches once they arrive!! In the mean time, here is my newest mani! I picked up China Glaze Fairy Dust and Orly Royal Navy. Just the two on their own are fabulous, but layered together...OH EM GEE, its fantabulous. Add a little Kleancolor Silver Star and the look is complete!

Okay so gnarly cuticles, and shorty nubs. I swear I am working on it, but i just can't seem to tame this dry skin! I hope to update more frequently. And once all my new polishes come in, it is a certainty!

Roses and Stripes!

First blog post!

I have finally decided to create a blog dedicated to my nail art! I love painting my nails, and seeing what kind of fantastic I can make them each day!

Here I have some white and navy stripes with roses!

Free handed stripes with NYC French White Tip and Sally Hansen's Navy Baby. Roses created with Essie Lollipop, Sinful Color Exotic Green and Sinful Color 24/7. Base coat Sally Hansen Maximum Growth and top coat is Seche Vete.

I bought a fantastic dress from Ross that inspired this design. It was my first try for roses...Not too shabby!

I plan on keeping all my nail art on here from now up! And now, it's off for heaps of polish fun!
