Random post, polish binge

Hi all
Had a lil polish binge yesterday.
Was a long rough week n I needed a lil retail therapy, hehe.
Started off at target …got 3 there:
2 Sally Xtreme wear —
Sun kissed….a pretty orange cream
Blue me away!…. a pretty blue cream
And a sinful colors Timbleberry…. A pretty pinky coral color.
Then the family and i went out to eat, had a few margaritas and then I just had to go to Sally’s BS (it was in the same strip mall).
Noticed the China Glaze 2 for 10 deal and had to take advantage.
I had been wanting Frostbite for some time so I got that and Make some noise which almost could be a dupe for timbleberry….look at pic n tell me if u agree.
I must have really have been feeling that pinky coral color yesterday since I bought it twice…
Hmmm wonder if I should take back the china glaze one since it was $3 more than the sinful colors.
Have a stupendous Saturday night 🙂
Thanks for reading …

Well hello happy hump day.
Hmmmmmm do I love my mani this time, maybe not so much.
I have been having polish block. I think I did so many cool manis that I can’t top myself….and now it seems way too boring to just have a solid nail.
So I saw a fellow blogger do a neon gradient I thought I would do a spin off that.
I was going to do yellow base but I chickened out.


Base color is China Glaze Rainbow..3 coats to get good coverage.
Next I sponged on a layer of CG purple panic neon on 3/4 of the nail. When that was dry I sponged on CG Sexy in the City on the tips. Had to do 2 coats of SintC on tips.
I dunno it’s cute but not my favorite mani.
At least i finally tried a sponge mani…. And actually it was very time consuming so not sure I would do it agin…for the time spent I’d rather do a marble mani:)

What a gorg weekend here in Iowa. I am loving spring this year.❤
So tonight’s mani was a do over…
First of all I was having a nail block. My Richard suggested a black nail with magnetic tip…it was a fail!! So I started over 😦
I got a gorg glitter made by wet n wild last week … I have had it on my toes with riveting polish by china glaze…it is so lovely in the sunlight.
So on my do over I decided to use that glitter polish. It’s a gold/copper glitter polish with multi sizes of glitters

Did a full 2 coats of china glaze “Go crazy Red”…
When that dried I applied wet n wild glitter “24 carat” over 3/4 of the nail and did a second coat on just the tip….have to say the wNw glitter is a fast drier and it looks so divine in the sunlight!! These pics do not do this glitter justice.
Hope y’all have a fabulous week!!!

Happy Spring. Spring break is my nail inspiration tonight.
My daughter is on spring break this week. Really happy to take a few days off to spend some time with her this week 🙂
Plus i made it to Walgreens last night after work and picked up a couple new polishes :). One of which I just had to try out tonight.
Sinful colors Athens…. A gorg shade of drk teal. I absolutely love this shade of teal!!
To make Athens springy I got out my dotting tool to make tiny lil daisy flowers with sinful colors snow me white and unicorn a pretty pastel yellow.
