Hello happy hump day! I have some wild nails to share with you this time.

While shopping for a friends b-day present the other day I ran into the Sinful Colors neon collection at the local Walgreens.  HaHa funny story when I first saw these I thought awwww I don’t need any more neon polish so I quickly shopped for my friend and left.  Needless to say I went back in less than three hours and bought all the neon colors they had, 6 in total.  This collection is different due to the packaging, the bottles are actually covered so you don’t see the true color through the glass; odd I know.  That is why I was a little put off at first but then I decided I must try these neons for myself.

I decided to do a neon skittle jelly sandwich:

Thumbs: Orange/yellow neon Rays of bright

Index: Orange/red neon Vivid a try

Middle: pink neon Bright to the point

Ring: dark pink neon Bright B4 UR eyes

Pinky: Pink/Purple neon neON and on

I did use a white undie for these neons.  And just for fun since these are jelly like…I stamped them with animal print image from my newest Bundle Monster plate from Time machine collection BM-XL136 using black konad polish.  Then I added one last thin layer of polish over my stamp.  Like a cheetah skittle jelly sandwich ;)

Overall I am pretty happy with how these turned out; my only complaint is that my pinks are a little too similar but oh wells.

BTW I hope to stay on top of the blog, but be warned I have decided to join the local gym so I can get in some evening workouts.  I have some (ok lots of) stubborn pounds I am trying to go after so if my posts seem kind of sparse that is why.  My intentions are to work this fat off, keep fab nails and keep blogging plus all the regular normal day to day stuff so wish me luck.  I feel like I can do it all :)  Burn baby Burn; bye fat bye.

Happy polishing!

I have a really fun summer manicure to share with you guys tonight.  The other day I wanted to go nude with a pop of neon.

Colors used for my neon nude mani are Zoya Satin Ana.  Ana is a pretty nude for my skin tone.  Zoya describes it as a light toasted almond cream. My neon pop is China Glaze Japanese Koi.  Japanese Koi is a ring the alarm show stopping neon orange.  One of my all time favs; I believe it was just retired.

This look is super easy to achieve.  First I started with my clear base Nail Envy as always, I never go without my NE base coat.  Then using a make up sponge I dabbed on my colors to get a semi gradient look.  Really really easy.  I used my latex barrier around my cuticles to eliminate long clean up time.

I am super happy with how these turned out.  Love me some neon nude pop.

Hope you are having a great week, TGIAF!!!!

Happy polishing!

Hello polish lovers!  I have a fun mani to share with you this time.  Have you ever tried the water marble technique?  It is a unique/random look but a challenge to apply.  It has been a few years since I have attempted one.  WHY you ask; OoOoO it has always been a hit or miss for me and it’s MESSY!!  BUT I got this amazing latex barrier stuff off amazon and this makes a water marble 90% easier!  No more messy tape to wrestle.

So I got brave put on a latex barrier on my cuticles and water marbled my nails.

Colors Used:   I used Sally Hansen’s Petal Pusher Insta Dri for undies.

Marble colors all Sinful Colors:

Shock and Awe; blurple cream

Neptune; blurple cream with silver shimmer

Sweet Tooth; lilac cream

Let me go; light purple pearl

I did some drop, drop, swirl, dip and poof I had myself a pretty good looking water marble.  And clean up was a breeze.

For the grand finale I thew on some holo Northern Lights top coat made by Out the Door.

I Love love love how this turned out.

I’m calling it Sinful Shades of Purple Water Marble.

Tonight I am going to share with you my various patriotic nails that I wore in the week leading up to the forth of July.  And since I am late (and lazy) I am just going to share all three in this one entry.

Fun fact:  my wedding anniversary is on July 4th.  Yep we got married at Viva Las Vegas on July 4th 12 years ago.  Now July 4th is one of my favorite days of the year and PS I love RWB manicures. 

If you want specifics on polish names or stamping plates just shoot me a comment.  Otherwise sit back and enjoy.  Save these fun ideas for the next time you get the urge to do RWB nails.

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 :)
