Cult Nails Clairvoyant

    November 29, 2011

    This is two coats of Color Club Snakeskin with no top coat. 

    Then I added two coats of Cult Nails Clairvoyant

    Later I saw the most beautiful Layering manicure with Cult Nails Clairvoyant posted by Sarah over at Samariums Swatches. I just HAD to do it. So the next day I took off my version and repainted my nails to match her version!!!!

    This is two coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather and one coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Black.

    I think the above photo looks awesome. This photo was my husband's first attempt at an HDR photo. He is still trying to get the hang of the whole HDR photos thing. I just thought I would share because I thought it was cool---brought out all the greens. It has a green glow!

    Then I added a coat of Cult Nails Clairvoyant! OMG! This is gorg. Thanks Sarah for sharing this combo! 

My Thanksgiving Nails= Lacquistry Tepes

    November 27, 2011

    I am loving Jenna's Lacquistry Frankens!!!! She makes incredible polishes that are reasonably priced! I recently blogged about her Paean of the Bells. And today I have Lacquistry Tepes! This is two coats and one coat of top coat.

    You can visit her Etsy shop here. She also recently launched a Facebook fanpage.  

    About two days later, I added a stamping design with Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-222, Nicole by OPI Positive Energy, and Revlon Cooper Penny. Please excuse the slight tip wear. I did cook and clean the day before and day of Thanksgiving.  =)

Red nails and pink crazy nails

Born Pretty Store Review

    November 25, 2011

    Today I have another Born Pretty Store review for you! 

    This is two coats of Dark Red Shimmer #18. Isn't it absolutely gorgeous? If I were careful with application, one coat would have sufficed. Click here for the Born Pretty store link to this polish. This is listed for $4.74. 

    Then I added one coat of Born Pretty Store's glitter gray polish #B32. This polish went on gooey (which was annoying), but the overall dry time was decent. The amount of glitter in the single coat was great! Overall, I love this glitter. It is so pretty! So many colors!  

    I was surprised the bottle of glitter was so small. I didn't realize it was a "mini" size.  The polish is only 8 ml, so about one half the size of a regular polish. So keep that in mind when you are ordering. It sells for $3.51 on the Born Pretty Store. But it is more than enough. 

    Here is Born Pretty Store's glitter gray polish #B32 over blue, white, black, and silver. My favorites are the white and black base coats. 

    Bonus: The Born Pretty Store's Dark Red Shimmer #18 is perfect for stamping! The butterfly image is from the  Born Pretty stamping plate M76, which I previously reviewed here. This was stamped over a bare nail (so please ignore the staining).

    Then I added one coat of Born Pretty Store's glitter gray polish #B32 and one coat of top coat.

Playing with Gold Nail Polishes

    November 23, 2011

    WARNING!!! It is official....My old camera HATES gold polishes. I can't wait to get my new camera back from the shop (broken LCD screen).

    Today's post is all about golds! I don't know what my deal was, but I was in the mood to play with gold nail polishes. The photo above shows ONE coat of Color Club Gingerbread Man with no top coat. This is a lovely gold foil polish. I tried stamping with it, but I am undecided on whether it is a good stamping polish or not... as of now, I say no.

    The photo below shows one coat of Color Club Gingerbread Man and one coat of Tip Toe (by Old Navy) Gold Dust with one coat of top coat. These photos do not do it justice. This was the perfect amount of bling. It was so gorgeous.

    On to the next gold nail polish.... I recently ordered five Ozotic polishes, and one of them was Ozotic 604. The picture below shows two coats of Ozotic 604 with no top coat. Again, my old camera does not do this polish any favors. This polish is the PERFECT gold. It does have a slight holo effect, but my camera did not pick that up. If you do not have this on your wish list, please add it! In person, it looks like a light gold polish with white/silver non-sparkly flakes with a slight holo effect. It is quite amazing--very unique.  Please do a google image search!

    Ugh, I hate the next two blury photos, but this is such a great mani. I stamped on the print with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Bronze Ablaze and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM 21. The photo below shows one coat of top coat. (P.S. I stamped BM 21 twice over top of each other to make the Sally Hansen Insta Dri Bronze Ablaze show better. one stamp was not dark enough).

    I added something extra with Kleancolor White and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM01

Lacquistry Franken = Fall Nail Design

    November 21, 2011

    I recently bought five franken polishes from Jenna of Lacquistry Original Nail Polish Creations!!!! You can visit here Etsy shop here. She also recently launched a Facebook fanpage.  Her polishes are amazing, and she has many to choose from. 

    This is one of her creations, the Paean of the Bells ("a sparkling bronze jelly base sprinkled with golden brown glitters, punctuated with gold holo bits to create a uniquely warm shimmer"). It is stunning, and I love the color. Too bad I didn't get better pictures but my fancy camera is getting the LCD screen fixed. So I had to use my old camera.

    This is two coats of Lacquistry The Paean of the Bells and one coat of top coat.

     The next day I decided to try something. So guess what I did. I used my METALLIC GOLD EYESHADOW. Yes, I said eyeshadow. I placed one coat of Maybelline Modern Metallics eyeshadow and one more coat of top coat. 

    Can you tell the difference? 

    Then I added some Fall inspired That's It? Instant Nail Art decals.


Color Club Revvvolution + OPI Simmer and Shimmer

    November 19, 2011

    This is two coats of Color Club Revvvolution with no top coat! This polish is so photogenic, I thought I would share multiple photos. It is a charcoal grey/black polish with a slight linear holo! This is my kind of polish. It went on so smoothly and dried quickly!

    The next night I added one coat of OPI Simmer and Shimmer and one coat of China Glaze Fast Forward top coat (which is my new favorite top coat), which I recently received from a friend's blog sale! It is GORG!
