Nail Diary #315

Hi all!! Sorry for my long break. Baby Jax, my new 8 week old Yorkie came home on Christmas Eve and I have been in puppy mode ever since. Wowie puppies are lots of work but I have been loving every minute of it, he is so sweet and precious.  Well, except for when he is making messes on my floor.

Look at that face, adorbs!!!

For Christmas my daughter Sydney was kind enough to ask for gifts for her parents from Santa, she is so sweet. Go Pro stuff for daddy and of course nail polish for Mommy.  I must have been good this year because Santa brought me the entire Zoya Matte Velvet Collection, drool. I have been dying to try polish from this collection since it first came out.
In between puppy duty I painted my nails using Zoya Harlow.  Harlow is a metallic rose plum color with a matte finish. This color is so pretty. Love the matte finish and love the fact that it dries fast because time is precious when you are puppy training.  I can’t wait to try out the other five colors from the fabulous collection in the near future.
I hope you are able to add this beauty to your collection; it is a must have!

I hope you guys have a fantastic New Year!

Happy polishing!

TGIF!  I have some good news and some bad news.  I will give you the bad news first… In 2015 Zoya is doing away with Pixie Dust nail polish, naaaaaaaaoooooooooooooo!!!  I freaking love Pixie Dust.  This is so sad.  But thankfully they are doing a BOGO Pixie Dust sale until Sunday.  I will be picking up the few colors I don’t have and stocking up on my all time favorite colors.  If you need the BOGO code all you have to do is ask in the comments or check Zoya IG or FB page.  So that is the bad news.

The good news is really just good for me but I am dying to share.  I am expecting an addition to the family.  We decided to get a Christmas puppy.

Baby Jax, Yorkie

Baby Jax

Right now we have 2 spoiled cats so come Christmas they are in for a big surprise.  We have had a sad void in the family for a few years now since I recently lost both my parents.  I am super excited for this little puppy to bring some joy back in our lives.  We could not be more excited.  Not to mention he is so stinking cute, hello yorkie cuteness.

On to the nails:  Seems fitting my manicure tonight is using Pixie Dust.  Actually three of my all time favorite Pixie Dust colors.  These are just perfect colors for the holidays.  On my pinky and index fingers I used Zoya PD Chita an amazing matte glitter dark Christmas tree green.  My thumb and middle fingers are Zoya PD Chyna.  This is a sexy matte red glitter, it screams the holidays.  On my ring finger I did a white base and then using my dotting tool I made a Christmas tree with both Chita and Chyna and for my star I used Zoya PD Tomoko.  I absolutely love how these turned out.  I have been wearing this polish since Monday WITH NO TOP COAT and so far no CHIPS.  WHY ZOYA WHY?????  RIP Pixie Dusts I will sure miss you.

I hope you have a great rest of the weekend.  I will be counting the days until my new little baby comes home.  This Christmas is about to get a whole lot merrier, yay!!

Happy polishing!

Happy Weekend!  I hope you are all having a great one.  I am super excited because I am nearly finished with all my Christmas shopping, yay!  Now starts the daunting task of wrapping them all.

I have a sweet festive manicure to show you tonight.  This time I wanted holiday nails but not too over the top so I decided to have just one festive accent nail.  On all my nails but one I used one of my 12.14 Square Hue colors.  This month is the last of the Square Hue passport collections and this month they took me to Rovaniemi.  Rovaniemi, huh maybe you are wondering where in the world is that?  Rovaniemi is the home town of Santa Claus, a village in Lapland Finland.  Absolutely perfect location for this month.  The color I picked to try first is a red micro glitter called Joulupukin Pajakyla.  Joulupukin Pajakyla is such a sexy red, I love the glam glow of the micro glitter.  For my ring finger I did a candy cane accent nail.  First I used my Sally Hansen Insta-Dri white and then added stripes with my straight nail vinyls and the red.  The accent was a little tricky, my colors wanted to bleed when I added my clear top coat.  Make sure you wait to until it is completely dry before you top coat it.

I really love how this turned out.  My nails scream holiday glam.

Once again Square Hue does not disappoint.  I can’t wait to see where Square Hue takes me in 2015.

Oh my goodness it is snowing on my blog.

I have a quick fun festive manicure to show you tonight.  I got this idea from @aishers87 on instagram.  This idea is genius.  She took the nail vinyl lighting bolt and made cute little half christmas trees on her nails.

Find these at nailvinyls.com

To recreate this look I painted all my nails with China Glaze Gossip over Gimlets.  This is a silver foil polish with gold flecks.  A perfect base for my Christmas Trees.  After placing my nail vinyls I added my half trees using Zoya Pixie Dust Chita.   Chita is a dark forest green textured polish that dries matte and is all kinds of sparkly.  I was going to add dots for ornaments like @aishers87 but I decided that my pixie dust was enough.  The pixie dust finish reminds me of twinkle lights, my FAVORITE christmas decoration.

These turned out super cute and surprisingly they weren’t that hard to do.   I just love when I nail it!!

Happy polishing!
