Oh man I am so behind on sharing my manicures with you guys, I really need to get busy sharing more.

Tonight I have a pretty teal/turq blue mani to share.  If you have followed me for a while you may remember teal is my favorite color.  Always has been; in college I even had a teal blue car.

Zoya Zuza does not disappoint in the teal department.  Zoya’s website calls it a turquoise but to me turq/teal are similar enough that I love them both the same.  This is a perfect blue for summer because it has a beautiful silver/gold metallic shimmer that is almost ocean like.

Of course I had to add some bling to Zuza.  Using China Glaze Optical Illusion from the 2012 Prismatic collection I added some fab glitter to my tips, using a simple makeup sponge.  Optical Illusion is an aqua glitter base packed full of multi colored big bits of glitter.  It really compliments Zuza.  I love the subtle rainbow effect on the tips, so gorgeous in the summer sun.

These remind of mermaid nails.  Take me to the ocean.

Hello I have a fun neon pop manicure to share with you tonight.

This is a 3:2 mani.

For my 3: pinky, index and thumbs I sponged on China Glaze neon green I’m with the lifeguard and neon blue Towel Boy Toy.  Then I added some fun neon chunky glitter that I picked up a few weeks ago China Glaze Can I get an untz untz from the 2015 Summer nights Collection; which is full of neon blue,green and a pop of fuchsia hex glitters all in a clear jelly base.

For my 2: I did my middle and ringers white using Sally Hansen insta-dri white OMGhost, my favorite white underwear because it goes on awesome and dries super fast.  Perfect base for Can I get an untz untz.  I love how this glitter POPS over the white undies.

This is a perfect summertime manicure.  Nothing better than neon in the summer.

Happy polishing!

Hello polish lovers!  I have a super easy but blingy polish to show you this time.

Meet Zoya Arlo.  Arlo is a mauve/pink Pixie Dust, in fact it is magical-no really.  This super textured glitter is jam packed full of holo bits.  I did add a top coat for a super high gloss finish.  I loved this color so much that I wore it all on its own.  I could stare at my nails for hours in the sunlight :)

YAY!!  It’s summertime!  I live in Iowa and the beaches are not that fab here in the Midwest; I mean once you’ve seen the ocean it is hard to go to a small Iowa Lake beach.  So I figured if I can’t take myself to a proper beach then I will put the beach on my nails.  Sounds logical right ;)

Here is how I got beach nails:

On my thumb,index and pinky I used a base of Zoya Rowan a satin nude polish.  Then I took Square Hue ala moana deep sky blue that has a blue shimmer and did a sponge gradient to resemble the sky over the sandy beach.

On my middle and ring fingers I used China Glaze Sun of a Peach a neon orange that freaks out my camera.  This color is way brighter in real life.

I loved this color combo but I felt like I needed to do some stamping to complete the beachy theme.

On the sand and sky nails I stamped on some waves using an image from BM-504 first using Square Hue ka’ahumanu a teal blue to give depth and then once again using white to represent ocean foam.

On my happy neon nails I added starfish from BM-503 using Square Hue ka’ahumanu.  OK I love teal over the  orange neon, who knew.

I really love how these turned out, now let’s all find a real beach :)

Happy polishing!

Hello polish lovers.  I don’t know about you but sometimes I just can’t decide on one color to paint my nails let alone two.  For this particular mani I couldn’t decide on any one color so I used five different shades; this is what they call a skittle manicure.  For these nails I knew I was going to the Breaking Benjamin concert so I wanted something edgy, dark, mysterious but with some bling.  So I used mostly dark colors and textures with a pop of color and glitter.  I really love how these turned out.

Here we go:

On my thumb I used OPI black satin 4 in the Morning.  Love this satin black, it is so sexy.  Leave it to Gwen’s polish line to be dark and sexy.

On my index finger I used OPI black liquid sand Emotions.  No words for this textured polish it is one of my all time favs.

My middle finger is base of SquareHue Times Square a silver holo polish with OPI In True Stefani Fashion on top a divine holo chunky glitter.  It shines so bright.  If this polish don’t attract attention I don’t know what will.

My ring finger is a matte finish Zoya Loredana a gunmetal grey.

Last but not least my NEW favorite red is on my little nail, Zoya Sooki.  This is a True Blood red polish.  I love Sooki to death!!!

I really love this rocking manicure.  It was the perfect combo for a rock show.

Happy polishing!

I admit it I am behind!  I really have been thinking about posting just not enough to get on…sigh.  BUT I am still polishing of course and taking pics of my manis.  Tonight I have to share with you guys a manicure I did a few weeks ago to go to the NACSAR races in Newton Iowa.  I have to say what a RUSH!  I absolutely love the races.  I feel like in my real life I should have been a pace car driver, lol!

To do my race nails I did a 3:2 mani.

On three nails I used my Zoya hot pink Starla.  Starla has a pretty silver finish, love this hot pink!  On my 2 I did a fast dry white polish and stamped on some checkered flags using my Pueen 48 stamping plate with Konad black polish.  I keep saying this but pink,white and black is my all time favorite color combo!

Hope you guys have a great week!  I will be back soon, I promise.  I have some pretty cute stuff to show you :)

Happy polishing!

Hello fellow nail polish lovers.  After a long holiday weekend it feels just like Monday, sigh.  So why not have a rainbow of glitter polish on my tips to cheer me up.  This skittle manicure was created with my coveted Zoya Pixie Dust polishes.  I have heard that these beauties are all being discontinued so hurry out to zoya.com and buy some for yourself before they are gone for good( no they don’t pay me to say that ;) ).

Side note in case you are wondering being the true nail polish addict I am claim to be I bought every pixie dust color and a backup bottle of my favorites, IKR that is just nuts.  Well they say the first step in addiction is admitting you have a problem.  Pixie dust polish is just so amazing, this is how I justify it in my head.  It looks beautiful without a top coat and with a topcoat it shines like stars, plus it wears like a dream.  Yep I just pretty much love PD, even the magical ones :)

My hand rainbow was created with (pictured with no top coat):

Thumb is my red: Chyna

Index finger is my orange: Dhara

Middle finger is my yellowSolange

Index finger is my blue: (I know sadly I had to skip green) Liberty p.s. my all time favorite blue glitter, EVER

Pinky finger is my purpleCarter

What do you think?  Now where is that darn pot of gold :)

Have a great week.

Happy polishing!
