Mint Sorbet Water Marble

Hello all, had an extremely long and tiresome day. Not to the point where I don't want to discuss my nails LOL! Over the weekend I experimented with some polishes for possible water marbles and fell in love with this combination. I used China Glaze For Audrey and Re-freshment it just screams spring and minty and creamy! So in love! Also if you noticed I will be editing my photos differently including my blog name. More water marbles to come :-)

Happy rainbow gradient nails

Hello all! Hope you enjoyed your Easter Sunday. I just laid around and relaxed. I was happy to have a 3 day weekend. Much needed.
I wore this mani a few weeks ago it was inspired by the swatchaholic's gradient she did on her blog I thought it was so pretty and unique. I choose similar colors. The orange is Orly crush on you, the pinks I used is opi strawberry Margarita and finger paints flip flop fuchsia and the red was wet-n-wild I red a good book. I used crush on you as a base and then sponged the other colors on. I really love the way this turned out.

Random NOTD

Happy hump day! Just posting some random pics of a few polishes that I've worn mostly during the work week. Thank God my job doesn't have any kind of restrictions on what kind of polish we wear.

                  This is two coats of Revlon charming a pastel lilac cream

  This is two coats of OPI Elephantastic pink. A medium peachy pink cream.

 This is three coats of Misa Double Date. A frosty lavender with pinkish undertones.

St Patty's Day Water Marble.

Hi all hope you had a great work week. I decided I did want to do a cute little water marble for St Patrick's day. So I decided to make it a shimmery one. Both polishes are from forever 21 love & beauty. The dark one is hunter green and the light one is called mint. And they worked wonderfully in the water together. Wasn't going for any particular design each nail is different. Now I gotta come up with one for Easter :-)

Ulta Vintage Violet

Happy hump day! And I'm happy to be off! LOL! Sitting here going through my photos and I forgot to post this mani that's over a month old! Shame on me.
Ulta vintage violet is a pinkish-violet cream. Its one of those colors that look pink in some lights and violet in others. The application was great a little sheer so it took 3 coats. I absolutely love this polish!

Sinful colors Endless Blue

Hi all, so sad to see the weekend go but I have an extra day off this week so it wont be so bad.
When I bought this polish I was super excited! Blue nail polish is my weakness and this one didn't disappoint me.
Sinful colors endless blue is a royal blue cream which kinda seems jelly-like. Its highly pigmented. I used two coats and topped it with rush 60 second top coat.

China Glaze Kalahari Kiss + Fergie tonight's gonna be a good night.

Hi all the weekend is almost here so glad. Have a lot to do still redecorating my bedroom.
Today I have a polish that I've owned since the on safari collection came out and never wore. China glaze Kalahari kiss a kahki colored cream polish. Love this color the formula is kinda thick and streaky but it evened out nicely at two coats. Then I added a coat of fergie tonight's gonna be a good night. I'm loving these glitters! It is a black micro glitter with larger gold glitter in a clear base. This one was a lot better to apply than kelidescope eyes. I didn't want to take this combo off.

Fergie Kalidescope Eyes

Hello, work week is almost over! So glad! Ready for the weekend. No plans just ready for two days away from my job ha!
Today I have another fergie polish which I must say I've grown quite fond of. Kalidescope eyes is a mix of blue, green, gold & sliver glitter in a clear base. I layered it over two coats of kleancolors sea ice. A bright aqua cream. While this polish is super pretty it is a pain in the ass to apply! Super runny! I had to dab the glitter on to get the coverage I got. Of all my fergie polishes this had the worst formula! It still looked nice and I'm sure ill be wearing it again. Maybe this was just a bad bottle. Fergie polishes are made by wet-n-wild and I've only seen it sold at Walgreens. Right now it is on sale 2/$5

Thinking of spring A Revlon water marble

Happy Saturday! Mines would be a little happier if mother nature would go away! Feeling super crappy! :-( ladies you understand. But not crappy enough to keep me from doing my nails :-)
I haven't done a water marble in a while so I decided to get back into it. I guess with all the cold weather spring was really on my mind when I chose these colors. My exsisting Mani was Revlon charming which I'll be posting later I know out of order LOL! So before taking it off I decided to marble over it.
I used all Revlon polishes for this. Top speed in Cupid and the other three was dreamer, sunshine sparkle and charming. No planned design just random swirls and stripes. I love the way this turned out. Excuse my dry cuticles I took & edited these after I noticed it. Enjoy the rest of the weekend :-)

Essie Kisses & Bises

Hi all been super busy celebrating more birthdays and helping my best friend get ready to move. Also been keeping warm it was -3° in Chicago the other day so the 16° now is considered a heat wave LOL!
Essie kisses & bises is a sheer irrediscent polish that flashes pink, green and an orangy-red. I layered it over a white base but I'm sure it will be beautiful over black. Then to add shimmer that my camera wouldn't capture I added a coat of sparitual sparkling conversation. A slivery shimmer top coat polish. It shows up much better in person. :-)

Wet-n-wild Buffy The Violet Slayer + Love & Beauty Purple glitter

Hi all! Happy the work week is almost over! Ready to spend some time with my family and friends. We always have a ball when one of our birthdays roll around :-)
I've had Buffy the violet slayer for quite some time at least 6 months but never wore it. I was feeling purple and its s speed dry so I thought why not. Boy I'm glad I did. This polish is much darker than it looks in the bottle. More of a blurple! (Blue + purple) the depth was so pretty my camera. Couldn't pick it up it has a satiny smooth finish I used two coats. Then I wanted to kick it up a notch and add a coat of love & beauty dark purple glitter another that I've had forever and didn't wear. It is a purple glitter that flashes blue in the light. I said I was going to start doing more layering :-)
