Ok tonight at Walmart I bought 2 non-china glaze polishes….this is when u realize u really have a polish addiction, no matter the brand.
So I got a couple Sally Hansen polishes…just bc I really needed new polish fix, hehe.
So I got “black tie” and a gem crush glitter polish called “big money”, whoo whoo.
I really could not decide which one to use so I why not both!!
Did China Glaze “heaven” on nail, tips are black tie, and half the nail is the big money glitter polish. Results are beyond gorg… Love love love this mani!!!
We will see how the SH polish holds up. Either way you know I love a good glitter polish and this one is worth all 7 dollars.

My last polish “swing baby” lasted a whole week before chipping, I must say I was impressed. This week I am going with another polish I got as a Christmas present…
It is china glaze of course. “Princess Grace”
It’s a real pretty pearly pink/lavender color. I like it, it’s soft and pretty.

Typically don’t do my nails on sat night….but the snowglobe started chipping already and I can’t stand chipped polish. Also thought my nails were getting way too long so I filed them down and applied a china glaze polish I got a few months ago. It’s called “swing baby”.
It’s a real pretty metallic color….almost a taupeish metallic. I must say I really love this color, it is very pretty and went on really well. Could have got away with 2 coats but I did 3.

So here in Iowa we finally got a taste of winter last night and today …which helped me to pick out my colors for my next mani.
I have just been dying to try this CG glitter polish, snow globe. This glitter polish has varying sizes of multi colored glitters…to me it seemed hard to apply evenly. But who needs even polish when you have the sparkle of glitter.
On the nail I used a china glaze polish “Sea spray” a really pretty light silvery blue; which reminds me of a wintery sky. This is a really pretty color but also hard to apply, at first it was kind of streaky but looks perfect with 3 coats.
I then applied the china glaze “snow globe” glitter on just the TIPS.
The result reminds me of what is going on outside, winter. I think it’s cute but it is not my favorite CG glitter but really you can’t go wrong with glitter πŸ˜€

So only 2 days since my last mani…. Problem with the matte top coat ( in my opinion) it just does not stay nice looking for very long. But i was still happy with the colors first mate and shine of the times so i just decided to cover the whole nail with Essie’s “shine of the times” top coat. STILL LOVE it n it’s luxeffects!! It has a gorg shimmery multi colored effect. <(:3. What is super rad about this top coat…it basically reflects the colors around it … So basically it matches every outfit!!
It may be my all time favorite top coat!!

Still can’t wait to try this top coat in many other ways.

Got another new polish yesterday with one of my Christmas gift cards… Essie’s “shine of the times” top coat. Love it n it’s luxeffects!! It has a gorg shimmery multi colored effect. <(:3.
It may be my all time favorite top coat!!

I decided to use it in a creative way.
Nail is china glaze polish “First mate” a really pretty navy blue.
Then i decided to use my Essie matte top coat over the entire nail.
Then I used the S of the T on just the TIPS.
The result is super cool, I love IT!!

I am obsessed with matte right now and am pretty disappointed no one makes matte polish anymore. If anyone has any suggestions where I can get matte polish do tell πŸ™‚
Can’t wait to try this top coat in many other ways.

Monday January 2nd 2012
Happy 2012!! My first mani of the year, decided to keep it simple this week. Also taking a break from glitter since it takes forever to remove (although totally worth it). <(:3
This is one of my 16 new CG colors that I got from husband for christmas.
China glaze polish: Ahoy
The iPhone pic does not pick up the true color…it’s a fuchsia pink with a glittery/shimmery shine. I love it, it has been months since I have worn a bright pink.
