My Mom loves this!

Hi all today I have for you #4 from born pretty (with nude as a base). Now originally this would be red but as I was using nude as a base it came out this beautiful pink...that when I showed off the finish product my Mom said she LOVED IT! 

I then had to add a little Pat flair to this! Purple is my favorite color and I really wanted to incorporate it into this look. I chose to use KleanColor Metallic Purple using LLC-A for my stamp. 

I hope you liked today's look. It really is a favorite manicure of mine. 
I hope you have a wonderful day.

Gamer Girl

Hi all today I have for you Born Pretty's #7 holographic. #7 is a sea foam green that is really pretty but not great for one to two coats without visible nail lines...I did use nude as a base color for that very reason. 

Here is how I stamped it. I used KleanColor Mettalic Black and Mettalic Green.

I loved this! I'm a gamer chick...I play many games and as soon as I saw this plate I knew it was perfect for me.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Hi everyone and happy thanksgiving. Today I'm showing you Born Pretty's orange holo (born pretty has these numbered) # 5 . I started with one coat of a nude and then added two coats of #5 . I know I have said this already but adding the nude under the color does change the color but I just want you to be aware.  Here is this lovely orange holographic by born pretty. 

I really like the stamp I added to this it made it feel very fall. I stamped this with KleanColor Metallic Orange and Metallic Green. The stamped I used was Bundle Monster BM- H11.

I wanted to thank you our readers for taking the time and reading on our blog. 
I hope everyone that is celebrating Thanksgiving and all of you that aren't have a wonderful day.

Happy Hunger Games!!

Hey everybody:) Happy Hunger Games!! I love this book series and am so super excited about Catching Fire coming out today in movie theaters. Unfortunately both of my kiddos are sick and I can't go see it until they feel better, but I wanted to celebrate with everyone going to the movies today! So here is my tribute to the new movie Catching Fire!!

This mani has a lot of layering, here is a quick overview of what I did... I started with a black and red polish for the base, then I added the matte top coat. After that had time to dry (this was a all day thing) I started to hand paint the fire on... red, orange, yellow and last a touch of white. While that dried I painted the mochingjay, not the best work but but you get the point! Hope you have fun at the movie and love this mani as much as I do.
Leave me a comment and tell me what you think of this mani and if you are dressing up you mani for Catching Fire.

Happy Polishing Everyone and my the odds be ever in your favor!

SinfulColors Leather Lux & Crystal Crush review

Hey everybody:) Today I have a few polishes from SinfulColors, they sent me these for review. I really love fall and am super happy that the leaves actually turned colors this year here in Georgia!  These two collections Leather Lux and Crystal Crush pretty much hit the "fall" look out of the park!

Here is how SinfulColors describes this collection: The Leather Lux collection from SinfulColors is a textured rich, trend-setting collection of eight stylish leather-inspired, matte finish nail polish shades, which are richly pigmented to provide a flirtatious way to flaunt your style.

The first polish from this collection that I got to review is Strapped. It is a teal, matte finished polish. It has a  nice deep teal color for fall (nothing too light that it screams spring), needs two coats and might stain if you don't have a base coat on.

Cold Leather is a deep navy polish that went on in one coat and dried to a matte finish. This polish is my favorite that I received from both collections. It kinda reminds me of a new pair of jeans ( I love a new pair of jeans!).

Here again is what SinfulColors says about this next collection: The Crystal Crush collection from SinfulColors consists of eight vivid gem-inspired nail polish shades with a multifaceted 3D texture. Gorgeous colors flecked with a reflective pearl finish sure to dazzle your digits and make your heart skip a beat.

Emerald Envy is a light green textured polish with a lime green shimmer. Okay I have to say this... I really don't like textured polishes, sorry I've been holding that in for a while and it just had to come out! But with that said I was surprised by this polish. I thought this polish would be sheer but it wasn't, It covered in one coat. Very pretty color but was a little more spring time in my opinion.

Got a Blush for You is a berry color polish with texture. I loved the color and got away with just one coat but if you wanted a deeper color two coats will do the trick.

I think overall these polishes hit the mark with a fall theme and are going to add deep rich color to any collection. There are 8 polishes for each set (collection) and I think I need to make a trip to Walgreens to nab some for $1.99 each that is an awesome deal:) Leave me a comment and tell me what you think of these fall colors!

Love Birds

Hi all today I have for you born pretty holo #10 (on top of a nude base). I used two coats of #10 which I love on top of the nude polish. 

Then I stamped this beauty using KleanColor Metallic Sapphire and plate BM H17 from bundle monster. 

Very blingy and pretty. I really love this color and the stamp together. I hope this chases the Monday blues away. Have a lovely day!

Hi all today I have for you a look I wore over the weekend for a birthday get together for my niece. This is a born pretty purple holographic with a nude base coat because I didn't want put on to many coats and it seemed a little thin. So I grabbed a nude did one coats then two coats of the purple. Such a beautiful purple!

Of course since it was for her birthday I did multi color ballons with KleanColors.....the KC's look holographic also! 

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. 
Thanks for checking out today's post!

Happy Halloween!!!

Hey everybody and Happy Halloween! Today is one of my favorite days of the year, a day where you can dress up, be anyone and just have fun! Pat showed you earlier her bloody mani and I wanted to share my mani for today and a few more that I did for fun.
Here is my mani, I like to call it Halloween Fright House.

The next one is a glow in the dark mani that looks like slime starting to drip from my nails.

Last but not least is the Black Cat mani.

I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of these manis and what you dressed up as and what is on your nails!

Happy Halloween Everybody!

13 Days of Halloween...Day 13 Bloody Good Time!

Hi all today is the last day of the 13 days of Halloween for us and I wanted to share with you one that can be used two different ways...To start off I used China Glaze's Rainbow, stamped with Astro Hot from Konad M73..then I used China Glaze White on White for tips. Now if you stopped here this could go with a Beauty Queen costume, Debutante costume, Princess costume and so on...(I wanted these to look as fake as possible for it). Second picture I added drips of Sally Hansen's Cardinal and a straw to blow the drips out to make it look like I used my nails to claw at something and things got bloody. This could be used for a Zombie girl, or a murderous beauty queen.... I did want the actual design to show through a bit more but over all I'm happy with how it turned out. 

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you have a safe and fun evening.

13 Days of Halloween...Day 10 Skulls

 Hi all day 10 of Halloween has come so today I have skulls from Bundle Monsters plate bm 413 stamped with KleanColor Metallic Fuschia. I started off with Zoya's Dove ,  I was just going to stamp it once on my ring finger but I liked it so much I couldn't leave it on just one finger so I decided to stamp all of them. I really like Dove with a matte top coat so I used Hard Candy's Matte-ly In Love on top (second picture).

What do you think? Are you ready for Halloween? What will you be wearing on your nails?

13 Days of Halloween...Day 8 I am Bat Girl

Hi all today I have for you a pretty cool Halloween nail design (one of my favorites that I have done). I started with a base of China Glaze Galactic Gray...with China Glaze OMG A UFO sponged on top. I then stamped it with black using Bundle Monster plate BM-H08 (from the holiday stamping set). You can see in the first picture more of the green and the holo of course was a little hard to capture. Here it is..

I really did love how this turned out. I hope you all like this look also. 
Have a great weekend everyone!

13 Days of Halloween 2013 ... Day 7

Hey everybody:) Day 7 of the 13 days of Halloween and I have a Wicked inspired mani for y'all.
So when I was sitting around thinking of ideas for Halloween, I thought maybe some kind of witch, and then while looking at movies to watch I saw Oz the Great and Powerful. Light bulb! I was so scared of that crazy witch in the Wizard of Oz when I was younger, what better way to celebrate Halloween than with a evil witch! So here is my mani inspired by Wicked!

And for those people out there who have no idea what I'm talking about here is the poster for Wicked.

This mani was harder than I thought it would be, but I love the way it turned out ♥. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think of this mani.

Happy Polishing Everyone!

13 Days of Halloween...Day 6 Spider-Man

Hi all today I have for you one of my favorite manicure's. I received this polish for review which you can find here.. I did a french manicure thinking of this manicure and of my nephew loving spider-man... so making it with Spider-Man colors I stamped it using Bundle Monster BM-H07 with white polish.

If I was to redo this I might use the thinner lines from stamp BM13 but I like how it turned out.
Thanks for checking it out :)

13 Days of Halloween 2013 ... Day 5

Hey everybody :) Today for day 5 of the 13 days of Halloween I have a acetone washed mani. I was looking at some jeans with my daughter the other day and she was talking about really light colored jeans ... "like back in your day, Mom" and it hit me! Acetone washed nails with maybe a cool face or something and then my son said why not try a skull .... DUH! So that is what I have for y'all today an acetone washed out mani with a skull!

I think this is one of the creepiest manis I've ever created and I love it!!!! Leave me a comment and tell me what you think of this mani.

13 Days of Halloween 2013...Day 4 Dancing Bones

Hi all today I have for you is day four of the thirteen days of Halloween. I used Sally Hansen Loves Me Not as my base which is a lovely purple glitter polish. I stamped first with KleanColor Metallic Green and the line stamp from Bundle Monster's Create Your Own (2013) stamping set. I then used a white for the skeleton stamp also from Create Your Own stamping set. Here it is....

I couldn't fit the whole skeleton on my nails so I figured I would stamp them different ways...I see these as dancing. I hope you like these I was really happy with how they turned out.
