Blue, black, and white

Hey everybody! Happy New Years, this is actually from yesterday and isn't my New Years mani, but I figured I would show it to yah. This is two coats of Nicole by OPI Blue Lace, and a coat of Chine Glaze Whirled Away. I found the awesome Blue Lace for three dollars at Five and Below, and was amazed that I'd never seen this nice color which also has a green sheen to it. I hope you guys had an awesome year, and get ready for another one.

Pink Glittery Goodness

Hi everybody, I hope your holidays were good. This is Essie Good Morning Hope which I got for Christmas, and Seche Collage Overlay. I love the combination and adore the white hexes as well as the kinda lilac rose bar glitter. I saw Collage Overlay and knew that I had to have it. Well I have a big Ulta order on my way, so more polish goodness to come!

Another Little Experiment

Hi everyone! This little polish I another one of my monsters that I made a few days ago. This is a dark purple jelly like polish with a bunch of my glitter added to it. Sorry about the tip wear, this was only one day too. My creations also end up thick and easily peeled off, actually look t the last picture to see the full extent. I hope you guys like it :)

Layla Ceramic Effect #54

When I was at Ulta last I found this gorgeous polish and had to have kit. This is from Layla(my first one actually) and is commonly called on the Internet as Green Galaxy, but my receipt from Ulta said Enchanted Forrest. Idk, but beautiful anyway. I bought this for somewhere around $5 with my 20% off coupon and then a $3 off points thingy. Well worth it I think. Without further adieu, here is Layla Ceramic Effect 54.

Christmas-y Nails

I will hopefully have more Christmas nails later in the coming weeks, but here are the first. This is kinda just a quirky little design I made with Sally Hansen Commander in Chic, Essie Red Nouveau, Sinful Colors Mint Apple, Fingerpaints Go Van Gogh, and a Kiss white stripe-r. Found commander in chic for sale around $3.

This design was made by putting a stripe of Go Van Gogh, and then Mint Apple over Commander in Chic. Then I added red dots and lastly the little white dots. I hope you guys like it as much as I do! :)

Orly Oui

This gorgeous color was the first Orly I ever saw on the Internet that called my name. When I saw a photo I knew that I must own it. I'm not completely sure what collection this came from because it came out before my nail polish addiction.

I' m a big fan of the color, and I bought my bottle of this shimmery goodness at Ulta I believe. It.s a very purplish sheer polish with a lot of goldish shimmer.

If there is any change in the quality of my pictures, I am most likely switching over to doing most of my posts from a new tablet! Comment if you have any opinions on it? :)

I hope your week is well!

Live and Let Die... Bond Polish!

When I was at Ulta this pat weekend they had one of their deals where you buy two OPIs and get a free full size of one of the Ulta OPI holiday exclusives.  I was getting a Christmas present for someone so I went and picked a polish for me too and Gift Cards for Everyone! as my bonus.  I picked out Live and Let Die from the new Bond polishes, the display at this Ulta was almost completely picked to death, they had like four of the colors, and this was the one that looked super awesome in the bottle.

Nail Armor

Okay back up and running! YAY!  To tart off I've got this gorgeous swatch of Nubar Knight's Armor, the only polish I currently own from the interwebs.  The polish is a sheer black with tiny itty bitty square silver glitter in it and together it looks like my nails are protected... ready for a joust.

College Voxbox!

Have you ever heard of influenster? It's this website for virtual media influencers to review products they've tried.  If you are looking for good reviews on a product, it's not bad place to start.  Anyway based on these badgers you get as well as your score, they may or may not choose to send you a voxbox.  These boxes are completely free, and they have five or six products... normally full sized.  This is my first one ever, and well I'm not the best as a salesperson, so if you're interested go here.

Anyway on to the box!

Sorry, and I hope it's all smooth sailing!

Okay I am sooooo sorry for the hiatus.  First, while we were singing along to telemundo, the pipe to our water heater busted and water came pouring through our ceiling fan.  Me and my dad's fiance are freaking out while my dad is getting eggs at the store, and I frantically call him.  We lost a couch, a laptop, and pillows to all the water.  We had two inches of water in the floor.  Fun times.  I've been dealing with that, but then my dad went and lost my camera for two weeks.  Sorry! I'm back though!  

Next off, I've got this pretty Essie beauty.  I found this at TJ Maxx for $4, and I decided I must buy.  It's soooo pretty.

Monday, November 5, 2012

Quick Update

Okay, I will try and have a nail post up for you tonight... I'm so terrible.  I promised you one last Thursday, but that's life.  Anyway I now have no tv, because yesterday our water heater decided to have issues, and water came spewing from the ceiling... FUN.  Anyway, I'm slightly damp, but fine.

Another Franken-ing

I showed you guys this mani at the beginning of the month, and well I decided to do a bit of experiment again.  I think if I were to name this, it would be Raspberry Cement.  Looking at the bottle you can see the awesome micro holo glitter in the pictures, I added some of Wet n' Wild Fantasy Makers Body glitter that I got at Walgreens.  I love how the holo and raspberry glitter look with the pale gray.

Awards! Liebster, Versatile, and Laine

Okay so in the past few months I've gotten three awards, one of them twice.... lol.  Some of them I got like months ago, but my main problem is that I never have the time to go and find the blogs to tag.  I'm gonna cheat and not tag people! I will answer all questions and I will do 11 facts. I really just don't feel that I have any real authority to do so, and I'm not sure how it really works. Awards I have received include the Liebster award, both by In-the-Red-Nails, and Packer Lacquer; the Versatile blog by Jamegackie, and the Laine Award by Addicted to OPI-yum.  Thank you guys so much!  I feel kind of accomplished for a who has only been blogging for four months.  I especially thank all my followers, and the comments.  I am mostly doing this to let you guys know how awesome you are, but tagging people is long and, I'm not sure if people have them or just  don't want to do all this.  I'm also aware that technically I don't have the award unless I tag peeps, but whatever.  I know that my blog is still kind of developing, and I hope for bigger and better in my blog :)

Nail Haul

Hey look it's another nail haul!  So this is kind of a test, I wanted to see how this schedule a post works.  Anyway I do realize my nail hauls are tiny compared to others, but these are still gorgeous polishes.  I promise to swatch them :)

Dragon Nails!

Wow long time no me... sorry!  I solemnly swear that I'm up to no good... no not really, just been busy.  I'm not totally sure when I did this, but I loved it.  It made me think of dragon scales, and that's just amazing to me.  It's a green base with two different types of holo shards on top, and the look is spectacular.

A Franken Kinda Day

If you follow me on twitter, I posted a picture of nail dial swatch a while ago, and I'm finally getting around to posting about it. Sorry I haven't posted anything this week, but I finally am getting around to posting. This is a franken I made... I'm not really a franken-er but every once in awhile I find a empty or little left bottle of top coat, and I ultimately just mess around with it.

The fourth installment of the Girly Girl Challenge, lol I should call it All My Nails.  So I wasn't very inspired by this weeks challenge but it was, Inspired by the Runway- What is your favorite trend this season?  Show us your stylish nail designs.  Now my actual favorite trend is probably the awesome vintage flower prints lately, but I'm pretty sure I'd be crap at that...

Matte glitter fun!

One day a few weeks ago I was feeling uninspired, so I decided to glitter it up.  Sorry bout the pictures, it was kind of a gross day outside, and my camera hates me.

Elegance... not so much

This is the third week of the Girly Girl challenge!  This week is Delicate and Elegant-Adorn yourself with lovely pattern, color, or technique.  I'm not so much on the elegant at the moment, but I do think these nails are AWESOME!  I don't really think it's very elegant, tell me what you think.

French Diamond

Okay so this is the second challenge from the Girly Girl Nail Art Challenge.  So this weeks nail art challenge is Gimmee That Bling- Diamonds are a girls best friend, so put some sparkle on those nails!  If you've payed attention to my blog, there aren't exactly a lot of diamonds on my nails, for two reasons.  At the moment I don't have any real ones, and the second is, is that they aren't something I particularly like.  Well I dug out some little flower decals, and that's all I could find.  This is a fun french tip with a flower decal.

First Day of School?

So these were the nails I had the first day of school.  I'm trying to catch up so bear with me. :)  These are kind of a fancy tip design, but I like it.

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

Girly Girl?

Okay so it's been a week or two, super sorry. I'm still trying to adjust to the new school; which sadly meant I've been more busy.

Anyway, on with the nails!  So I'm doing the Girly Girl nail challenge along with a plethora of others.  This one was made by Lisa of lisa's Nail Obsession check it out here.  So this weeks is

Go Techno Van Gogh!

My nails today are a emerald green creme with a fun sparkle top coat.  Yesterday I was at Sally's, and all of their clearance was 50% off.  I bought like 6 bottles, and two of them were these beauties.  I spent like 10 dollars on a bunch of polishes, and a giant bottle of nail polish remover.

Nail Ideas... Dreams

If you've noticed, I tend to try and do more nail art than anything else.  I realize that I don't have anywhere enough money to swatch things addictively, and I like the effects of nail art.  When I got my nail discs last month I began swatching most of my nail polish... but I also kept a disc especially to put my ideas down, to test so to speak.  This is the first of hopefully many.

An Ornate OPI Pattern

I bought German-cure by OPI from Ulta yesterday.  I could really only afford one bottle, and this was the one that I kind of drooled over.  I am making plans to attain some more of it soon(much to my wallets disdain).  Also I really need some striping tape; does anyone know where to buy some without having to order off the internet?  I can't really order a lot off of the web(hence why I own no indies...however much I want them).  

Press On Manicure?

imPRESS, made by Kiss, are supposed to be a press-on manicure.  So I'd wanted to try these since they came out... not really sure why.  I decided I would finally buy some when I was at Walmart one day.  I bought the most ridiculous ones they had, mostly because that's just how I am.  These are called Text Appeal.  After applying them, the only thing I liked was the bottle.

Saturday, August 18, 2012


I suck I know. I have two posts lined up but just couldn't find the time. I won't be able to post until Sunday night. Just keep tight. Maybe I will do some super intricate nail art to make up for it.

Keep on nail polish addicts. :)

Sally Hansen Stud-io Time

Holy Cow Batman!  999 views this morning... yes I am considering that 1000.  Thanks for you guys making my first month kinda successful.  I am extremely happy :D.

On to the nails!  I kinda cheated, sorry y'all.  I was at Target and these nail wraps were in the sale bin for $2.56, and I figured, "Why not?" I hadn't used any nail wraps since the Sally Hansen wraps came out (I tried the butterfly ones then) and that was before I was really in nails.  I love these... I had a much better experience than the first time.  They are cute, and work correctly.  While I won't shell out the $10 normally, I will spend $2.56.

    Nail Haul

    I know this isn't near as ridiculous as some people's nail polish hauls, but this one made me really happy.  I went shopping at one of the malls today, and these came home with me.

    Tape Color Blocked

    Wow... I just enrolled for school last Wednesday so now I have to do Summer Assignment catch-up.  It's so hard to remember pre-calc... AGH!!!!  My calculus assignments are even time constrained, but I suppose that's life.  Anyway I painted Elephant Walk on Monday.  Yesterday I decided that was too boring so I added a stripe with tape and Celeb City.

    Little Black Dress!

    These nails are yet (I know, it's getting ridiculous) another nail art contest. This one ending, very soon!  The link is here, and I suppose you could get one done in the 2 and a half hours left before the deadline.  Her guideline was fashion so I chose the ever so needed little black dress.

    Dots and Stripes!

    This is yet another nail art competition entry, this competition from the Lacqerologist.  Her qualifications for the nail art is listed on the linked page, but I chose to do a combination of the two, and do a dot and stripe nail design.

    Blue Glitter Gradient Nails

    Woooo, back in North Carolina, and all my pretties were waiting for me.  I just had to grab some and do a new manicure.  I've got a few ideas for nails to come... some including some major free hand nail art.

    Once a few months ago I tried a glitter gradient.... and well it didn't quite go as planned.  I'm not sure why but I thought that my amazing Nails Inc. glitter, Connaught Square, would pretty amazing with a neon hot pink.  From there I decided I should attempt the gradient effect again

    Gray and Pink Tribal Nails

    The last and final post of the day.  My current manicure is now this fun and cute tribal design.  The pink is just so bright against the gray.  The white just kind of makes the design.

    Action Shot

    My Horrid Nails

    Because of all of my continuous nail paintings, my nails have become rather... discolored.  The health of my nails is terrible, and I would actually love some tips on how to get them healthy again.

    NYC Nails

    These are the nails I did for my trip to New York, and no they aren't very original.  Especially since it's just the same design as the pastel nails.  They are really just another combination for my entry to the contest.  The link is again.

    Sunday, July 22, 2012

    Sorry for no posts!

    Well I've been on vacation for four days and have basically had no wi-fi(I could check me e-mail, that's about it) for five... but hopefully I should be posting 2-3 posts tomorrow.  I went to New York, and had some car trouble trying to go up on Wednesday and ended up going on Thursday.

    First Post! 3D Glasses Stripes Art

    My official first post!  Yay!  Anyway this is actually a nail design I've done a lot.  I'm trying to perfect the tape stripes of nails.
