It's Me Again

Hey all...I know I have been posting sporadically, but it has been because of school.  Well my semester ended yesterday and will be off for a month.  I have not been posting but I have still been painting my nails so there will be posts more often now.  There may even be one later today.

Until next time happy polishing!

Color Club Halo Hues Cherubic

I have another polish from the Halo Hues Collection.....Cherubic. It's a taupe holo, it was opaque in one coat, but I always do two. This is very pretty and perfect if you want the wow factor, but still a little conservative.  I loved it and received plenty of compliments on this.  Until next time...happy polishing!!!

Color Club Halo-Graphic

Today I have one of the new holographic polished from Color Club as the title  This is a pink holographic polish....there are two and Halo-graphic is the darker of the two.  I love all of it's holo-e goodness.  I like the formula if this better than the Layla Holos.  You can wear a regular base coat and top coat does not dull the holo effect.  This is 2 coats, with a base and top coat.  Now without further adieu on to the flix.

OPI Jade is the New Black

Today I have for you, OPI Jade is the New Black, a dusty mid toned green from the Hong Kong collection.  I picked this up about 2 yrs ago at one of my local grocery stores on clearance.  I'm not big on greens so I was hesitant to wear it but I finally did and I like it, I really like it! LOL, formula I know but I just couldn't resist.  This is 3 coats followed by a coat of Seche.

Until next time....Happy polishing!!!

Leopard Print....Love it!

Ok, so I was trolling through nail blogs and came upon Chalkboard Nails.  She had done an awesome leopard print mani and I just had try it.  I used China Glaze I'm Not Lion, China Glaze Liquid Leather and a NYC polish I don't remember the name of right now.  It came out great and I received tons of compliments on it.  I will most definitely try the leopard mani again with different colors.

Jelly Sandwich Fail

Ok, so I was looking at another mail blog(sorry I can't remember the name) and came across a jelly sandwich that I wanted to try, OPI Y'all Come Back Now Ya Hear and Servin' Up Sparkle.  Well I didn't have Serving Up Sparkle but I did have Pirouette My Whistle, so that us what I used.  Can you say...hated it!  I know hate is a string word but I just did not like it.  On the other blogger it was gorgeous, not so much on me.  I used 2 coats of Y'all Come Back, 1 coat of Pirouette and another coat if Y'all Come Back all topped off with Revlon Quick Dry.  Not my fave and I took it off the next day :-(.  Until next time.....happy polishing!

Almost Tape Mani I first painted my nails with Essence @Holografics in Blue Ray.  I've had the polish for a while now, but just finally decided to wear it.  First things first, this is not a holographic polish, it's a very pretty blue purple duochrome.  The first coat went on a little streaky, but the second coat evened it out.  But...I just could not leave well enough alone and attempted an accent nail using tape.  Well, the tape didn't work for me so much, so I had to free hand it, but it did come out very nice if I must say so! For the accent nails I used China Glaze Liquid Leather and Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in Instant Iris. Check it out:

A Jem of a Polish

Hey all! I'm baaacccckkkk! Since I'm back in school now, I haven't had much time to paint my nails or blog or much of anything. My nails have been in horrible shape, they've been breaking and everything. Well, today I have Zoya Jem for you. I absolutely love this's a purpley color and it's perfect for fall.

Plain Jane

Today, I have a plain Jane mani. I felt like I needed something a little subdued. I reached for one of my untrieds.....Essie Turquoise and Caicos. It's a beautiful turquoise leaning more towards green. I honesty don't know why I waited so long to wear this polish. The formula was kind of thin and to get the look I was going for I had to use four coats. For my accent nail I used my dotting tool and just made an off center row of dots using WnW French White and A England's St. George and toped it all off with a coat of Seche Vite. Until next time happy polishing!

Excuse Moi!

Today I have OPI Excuse Moi from the muppets collection. I like this best from the collection. There was no problem with application and the glitter is kind of fine but still chunky. For top coat I used one coat of Gelous and one coat of Seche Vite

I'm back!

Hello all! I have been M.I.A for God know how long, but I haven't stopped polishing or buying polish. I'm planning to catch up with posts and post some haul pics.....maybe one day I'll graduate to videos but until it is. What I have for you today is a water marble that I saw on Colette's blog My Simple Little Pleasures
, Her water marble tutorials are pretty easy to follow and I normally have pretty good results. This was using the same Colorado that she used in her video, China Glaze Liquid Leather and Ahoy....the only difference is that I did not do the figure eight swirl. Voila
Until next time....happy polishing!
