Try it Tuesday
Ok tonight I am trying Sinful Colors Nirvana. Got this at Walgreens; actually bought it twice… I bought it the second time because the name tag said it was matte …. Huh my first bottle did not say that, so I was curious.
Ok well here is my Nirvana matte… Humph that sure doesn’t look matte to me…I got duped. 😦

So of course I had to use my Essie matte to get the job done right!!
My daughter seen me using this color and she said “ewwwww mom who wants to wear brown nail polish?” I dunno I kind of like it. But just to glam these nails up I added Sally Hansen Gem Crush Big Money on my ring finger.
I might be a little off but I like this look. I love the battle between matte/grunge and glitter!!

Good thing I only paid 1-2$$ for the Nirvana twice otherwise I might be more upset about the tag error. Maybe now I can gift my duplicate bottle, or not?!?!

Have a great week, thanks for stopping by 🙂

Another weekend gone too fast. I am in heaven right now nail blogging while watching my fav love story The Notebook. 🙂
So this mani started yesterday with Sally xtreme polish B-right On!
We were going out for mexican and margaritas so in anticipation I used this pretty lime green polish. Needed three coats to make it even. This polish is super fun and so was drinking margaritas last night.

Here is my IG pic from last night…


Today I wanted embellish B-right On! So I put a stamp on it.
Used BM plate 322 a fun diamond shaped pattern. The color I used for my stamp is Finger Paints Add & Abstract. ❤ I love this color combo ❤

Hello Happy hump Day!!
This is my Try it Tuesday mani.
I had to wait to blog it today so I could photograph it in the sun.
I was feeling very magnetic last night!!
This one I got at Sally’s a month or so ago on sale, orange tag… I love when I see orange tags at my Sally’s….yeah yeah it’s the little things that make me happy.
Finger Paints Cop an Attitude.
This is a beautiful copper polish all on its own … it becomes a star when you apply the magnetic effect to it. The magnet on the top of the bottle creates a fun wave, love ❤love ❤love❤!!
It is kind of fall like.
I almost like the finger paint magnetic polish over china glaze…
Have you tried magentic polish…if u haven’t you should.

Hey guys!!
So my last mani from Monday lasted until last night…can you believe that?? Not one chip til yesterday when I was cleaning.
So last night I was busy watching the Hunger Games so I only had time to take off my polish (chipped nail polish drives me crazy)… I actually went to bed with naked nails, jeez that hasn’t happened in awhile, lol.
Here is a pic of them in all their nakedness…. They are a bit yellow…

So since I watched the Hunger Games last night I just had to paint my nails with polish from the HG line. China Glaze smoke and ashes. Picked this pretty up at Ulta on sale Friday night.
This is a beautiful black polish with shimmers green almost teal.
Originally I was just going to put my Essie matte over it but I thought it looked too dark so I glammed it up instead.
On the tips I added a new Piggy Polish I also got from Ulta Friday night called Teal it like it is this is a gorg teal glitter, loving it. Then I added some glitter polish on about half of the nail that picked up at Sally’s for cheap Ultra Pro Silver Slipper.
I am pretty happy with the results … I think the sparkles look really pretty with the Smoke and Ashes. Almost galaxy like.

So last night I tried China Glaze Jungle Queen. I like this color but I want to glam it up.
I couldn’t decide to stamp it or glitter it so I did both.
I used my BM 325 plate…it has a giraffe print tip stamp….ahhhhh perfect for a jungle queen. I used another new polish I picked up from Sally’s last Friday to do the stamping. Finger Paints Take it or Leaf it from the new Fall of surprises collection( one of 3 I got from this collection). I don’t know how to describe this color … It is a metallic taupe/purple??? Great polish for stamping. It stamped like a dream.
Then I decided to take the glam up another notch and added some glitter China Glaze CG in the City. This glitter really compliments the jungle queen
So I am kind of disappointed that the glitter went on so dense…I can hardly see the stamping. But that’s ok subtle is good sometimes.

Ugh!! I can’t stay out of Sally’s!! It’s a new month and they sent me my discount on my entire purchase for spending 25$ last month…
They know just how to lure me into their den. Haha
My intentions were to just look at the new bohemian collection by China Glaze. Of course I did just that and I was strong and didn’t buy one from that collection…I was annoyed that they were not on sale, lol.

But I did end up getting my first polish from the China Glaze Safari collection, Jungle Queen.

It is a pretty dark purple with a purple pink shimmery effect. So hard to describe. I do like this color, it reminds me of fall.

I think I may stamp this to tomorrow 🙂
