Galaxy Nails!

Dear Polish Lovers,

This is a mani I did about a month ago, but I just had to share because I think it is just so stunning!  It is a galaxy design, let me know if anyone want's step by step instructions!  I used Sinful Colors Black, China Glaze Sea Spray, Color Club In Bloom,  China Glaze Dorothy Who?, China Glaze Techno, and China Glaze Fairy Dust.  I love the way this turned out!

Please excuse the little messies :3

Sally's and Ulta Haul

Polish Lovers,

I have not bought nail polish in quite some time mainly I just have soooo many.  But Ulta was having a buy 2 get 1 free sale on professional brands so I stopped by to pick up 3 Zoyas.

From Left to Right: Lotus, (True Collection), Shelby, Reagan, (Both From the Beach Collection)

I was pretty excited to get some new Zoya's because they are definitely my one of my favorite brands!

Then I stopped at Sally's because I was running low on my top and base coat so I just picked up my usual Seche Vite fast dry top coat, and I usually use Nail Life Gripper base coat, but they were sold out, so I decided to get a ridge filling base coat instead.

Then I found I had a gift card I had forgotten about so I treated myself to some China Glazes :)

From Left to Right: Exotic Encounters (On Safari Collection), Seduce Me (Permanent), Life Preserver, and First Mate, (Both of which were from Anchors Away but are now permanent).  

I'm sure you'll be seeing these in upcoming posts but let me know if there are any swatches or comparisons you would like to see!

Accent Nails!

My fellow polish lovers,

I am so sorry I have been the worst blogger ever!  School was so crazy but now it's summer, and I will be posting more for sure!  I also just got a new camera so quality should improve :)

Today I have a simple blue combo (blue is my favorite color on my nails).  The light blue color is What's with the cattitude by OPI (shrek collection) and the dark blue is First Mate by China Glaze (anchors away collection but is now permanent at Sally's Beauty Supply).  Then I added some hexagonal silver glitters that i purchased off of ebay.  Simple but I've really been loving adding something different to my ring finger!!!

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer and I'll be posting soon!

Quick Color: Essie One Day Without Blues

Long time no blog!

I appologize for being MIA for so long, its just high school is so busy!  Ive had loads of work with AP Classes and tons of music festivals and life guard training, gah you get it, no time to blog.  Anyway!  This also means I haven't had too much time for nail art which is a bummer because I do miss it.  But I'm going to try to make some time for myself to do it.  But for now, here is a swatch of Essie One Day Without Blues.  I don't think you can actually buy this because I got it from a promo when I got a pair of TOMS shoes a while back.  I've actually had it for about 3 months and never used it because I didn't think it was too stunning.  But when I applied it I was like OMG.  This has to be my favorite blue, it's even beat out Orly Snowcone.  LOVE!

The picture was from my iPhone so not idea, but its all I had on me.  

Hope to post soon!

Zoya Malia and Crackle

Hey Polish Addicts,

School is out for me so I should get back to posting about every five days! Woop.  So here is a quick post with Zoya Malia as a base, and China Glaze Black Mesh crackle on top.  I really like the way the crackle was applied because it wasn't too thin where you can't see enough base color, or to thick.

PS  Malia is like my favorite purple ever ;)

New Puppy and Simple Nail Art

I have been the worst blogger ever -_-.  But my life has been busy!! For nails I have 2 coats of Orly Snowcone (tied for my favorite blue ever along with zoya yummy.)  and I just used LA Colors Art Deco in White and Gold Glitter to make simple little stripes.  I did a lot of peoples nails for proms and this was a design i used a lot.  Enjoy!
