She's so Glam, she spits Fire mani!

Heyyyyyy Ladies!  Hope you are all well.  I still haven't decided on what to do with my nails for vacation.  I am a little afraid to visit a nail salon because I do not want excessive filing on my nail bed.   But we will see.  I finally did a mani that held the worthiness of taking pictures.  I mixed Pure Ice "Spit Fire" with  Color Club "She's so Glam" and put something together.  I liked it.  I know I did a good job when I can't stop looking at my nails!!  And I must apologize for the day 2 wear and tear photos.  Color Club polish holds its wear very well.  And this combo looked great on my toes as well.





day 2 wear n tear photos






And this is after cooking, cleaning, washing dishes, showering, changing poopy diapers, and wiping vomit..............ETC. lol

Enjoy!

What to do for vacation?


Hello Ladies!!! I am going away to Mexico in  few weeks and I wanted to know if any of you had suggestions on what to do with my nails. The last time I went to Mexico, my nail polish started chipping and peeling. I had to pay 35 dollars for a manicure at the spa. SO, what do you gals do? The hard part is, I live in the pool! And I do not want to do acrylics. I thought about just bringing my own polish and doing my nails there, But who has time for that on vacay? Any thoughts? I am getting nervous! Because you and I both know that water and no nail polish equals.................a broken nail!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE HELP!

Ross Color Club Rebel Debutante Collection Haul!

I got the Color Club Rebel Debutante Collection from Ross a while ago. I have been wanting this collection for a while. BUT, the two colors I really LOVED "Gossip Column" and "Rebel Debutante" were not included.

From left to right: "Who are you wearing, Best dressed list, High society, Charity ball, Uptown girl, She's so glam, and Miss socialite"

ENJOY

My Badd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Ladies! How are you doing? I know I have been out of the loop lately. Been busy with family and personal stuff. I felt like I neglected you all! I haven"t done anything new, been very bored with my nails even though I bought new polish recently. Maybe I need to try some Konads to spice things up. Hope all is well. I wanted to share my Memorial day mani.

This was done with Opi "Steel Coal" 3 coats! This black was great with small silver glitter. But I didn't like that the glitter was only seen by me because it was so small.
I used some art stickers from Walmart.

Enjoy!

Shellac Creative Nail Design 14 day manicure!!!!!!!!

HELLLOOOOO! Have any of you ladies seen this article? Creative Nail Design has mastered a nail polish formula that lasts up to 14 days! And according to online sales and salon sales...........women are going crazy for it!!!! Have any of you tried this line before? If I was a working mom, this would be the best thing in life. But, I don't know if I could look at the same color for 14 days! The color choices are limited of course, I think that has to do with the formula. But it's GREAT for the nail world none the less!

ENJOY!

ALL ABOUT MY GOLDEN ENCHANTMENT BODY LANGUAGE!

HELLO LADIES! I know it's Monday and the weather is crappy, so the only thing to brighten my day is...............NAIL POLISH!!!! I was watching the series Snapped that comes on Oxygen, LOVE that show! So I wanted a kick ass mani, in case I had to go on the run.............lol (trust me the hubby is still alive) So I used Essie "Body language", Sinful "All about You" and China Glaze "Golden Enchantment".....2 coats of "Body Language" and one coat of each glitters.............









Blurry pic to show glitter


I LOVE this!

ENJOY!

100 Followers and swatches for past mani's!

First I would like to take this time to say THANK YOU to my 100 followers! Thank you for taking the time to show interest in my new found love of nail polish. The give away winner will be announced this evening.  I have been doing some manis, some good, some bad. But I feel I would not be true to my followers if I only posted great manis! On to the swatches..........................3 coats!

First up is the white Bourjois nail polish I purchased from Ross, I do not have the name, but its a nice creme white, not bright chalk white, more marshmallow white. I hope that makes sense...........




Do you see my dilemma? And I do not want to go through the hassle of removing this!

I got bored so I tried a design.....using OPI "Suzie says Feng Shu" and "Hot and Spicy".  I later added Sinful "All about You" which is a gold glitter to cover it.......your thoughts? I really liked it! Oh, I got this design by using the sponge method.





Next up, I really did not love this mani too much but what the heck, here it is......


I did this mani with Color Club "Take me to your Chateau" for the base and Orly "Passion fruit" for the lines..........BLAH.

Enjoy!

Watermelon mani.............well not exactly!

Hello Ladies! I hope you all are doing well! I am extremely in love with Orly "Green with Envy" This is a sheer to creme base aqua green color. I LOVE this polish! It has an yellow undertone that keeps it bright but not neon bright. I added some decals to spice it up and the first thing that came to my mind was a watermelon!..........lol On to the swatches, 3 coats.






My nails are growing in so nice, ENJOY!
