All about Essie

Hello everyone and welcome! This week has been an up and down week for me, work has been crazy and I've really been missing my soon. He said cookie for the first time today and I just about cried! Time really does fly by. Enough of the sappiness!
Today I have an all about Essie post. I purchased my first Essie polishes a little over a week ago, I've heard so many good things about them and since the luxeeffects came out I had to try! I have turquoise and caicos and shine of the times for you. Turquoise and caicos is exactly what its name is, a beautiful shade of turquoise. Shine of the times is a clear jelly base with irrisescent gold flakie that in different light goes from gold, red, green and sometimes a slight ttint of blue. These polishes all have a wonderful application with no cuticle flooding! Shown is 2 coats of turquoise and caicos, and one coat of shine of the times. I hope you enjoy and until next time!

Funky french

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I have a funky french tip for you:) to achieve this mani I used Sally Hansen pardon my french and china glaze liquid leather for the black tip and a silver striper! I love the Sally Hansen salon brush top! Its rubberized so it has grip and doesn't fall! This is 3 coats of pardon my french and then one thick coat of seche vite. I have a love/hate relationship with seche vite. I hate the smell of it, and it shrinks soooo much! Well onto the pictures and until next time!

huge haul!

Hello and happy thanksgiving! Today I have my first ever haul post! This is a HUGE haul for me. I'm talking 33 polishes. Im not going to post the name of them all if you have any questions about a certain color feel free to ask! I got all of these between Walmart, target and Ross, and this isn't just from today, its over a span of 3 days! Now including my julep box that's on it's way as well as my 4 bootie babes I will be up to around 110 polishes! Woohoo! Now excuse the super crappy cell phone pictures and terrible lighting! Hope you enjoy and until next time!


Sweet treats part two

Happy hump day! Did anyone guess what the sweet treats were? Its cupcakes! As soon as I saw the colors together I knew Ide have to do cupcakes. This is my little take on a treat themed mani. Hope you enjoy and haul posts coming! (I may have gone over board polish shopping..)

Sweet treats

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone has had a wonderful day! Today Ide like to show you a swatch (or two) before I do my nail art on it! I'm showing you Nicole by opi Hard-Kourt Fashionista and Salon Perfect in Honeysuckle. HKF is a beautiful dark brown creme/jelly. The formula is wonderful and is shown here with two coats. Now on my accent finger I used Salon Perfect Honeysuckle. I found this brand when I was shopping the nail polish and Walmart and figured for 2.98 it was worth a shot. I was amazed at how easily it applied and this is just ONE coat! I was shocked! I did not apply a topcoat because in my next post you'll be seeing my "sweet treat" nail art. I hope you and joy, and can you guess what the sweets are;)

Quick post

Hello everyone! I'm going to do a quick post and run but I wanted to show off my collection a little, now compared to a lot of the bloggers I have seen, this isn't anything. But to me this is a lot (until this week, haul posts to come!) I got this makeup stand from my work, we were getting rid of all of our makeup and they told us to toss the display, well I knew it would bbe perfect for my polish and makeup! Its not all loaded up yet but its getting there! Thanks for looking and check back for my hauls!

Holo chrome

Yay for two mani posts in a day! I decided I wanted to go with one of the new kleancolors I just got in the mail the other day. It took a while but I finally chose holo chrome. I had read a lot about how kleancolor polishes were really smelly, boy was I hit with a surprise when I first opened the bottle. It was the strongest polish I had smelt yet! But for 1.75 this mani sure was worth it! Holo chrome is a beautiful almost deep purple base splashed with tons of holographic and chrome holo flanked (hence the name of it;)) for my mani I layered two coats over wet n' wilds black creme, topped with seche vite. Next time I put it on I think I will layer it over a royal blue or deep plum. Enough chit chat and on to the pictures! I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think!


Fall watermelons?

Hello! I'm sorry for not posting latley, working 10-7 most days of the week it gets hard to get a good Mani in! But ill be posting quite a few things today, first is my fall watermelon Mani, now I know watermelons should have been posted but for some reason I had this crazy idea for this. I got a few new polishes and thought they would go great together! I used a base coat of pure ice dreamy, a beautiful pink jelly color with pink holo glitters in it! Delish! Then I used cherimoya 2012 crackle polish in crucify for my tips, to make the watermelon rind! Then black acrylic paint for the seeds and a coat of seche vite to top it off! Excuse the awful pictures, i had to make do woth artificial lighting this time because of my work hours. I hope you enjoy and see you in the next post:)

Sinful colors- HD nails & call you later

So here is my first ever Mani shown on my blog. I'm a little nervous but yet so excited to start my journey into the blogging world! I used sinful colors HD nails as the base coat for call you later. HD nails is a wonderful metallic green. Easy to apply with only one coat. Call you later is a green glitter, I love this one because it is jelly like with small specs of gold glitter.

Excuse the tip wear and dry cuticles, I'm still learning and almost there!

Hope you enjoy, I'm always open to feedback!
