Hey all!  I have a fun neon look to share this time.  All the neons I used this time are China Glaze polishes.  Quick neon tip: first I started with white undies so my neons would have that neon POP.

To get this look I did a Tri-sponge technique alternating three neons on every other nail.  Color combos are as such:

Pinks/orange/yellow called Love’s a Beach/Japanese Koi/Celtic Sun                                                                 Greens/Blues/Purples called In the Lime Light/Turned up Turquoise/Dune Our Thing

Basically I sponged on the tri-color combos and alternated nails; just that easy.  I am really happy with how the neons blended together on each nail.  Then I added a funky stamp from Bundle Monster + Sloteazzy BM XL210 blogger designed images.  I love how the swirl looks on the neons; super fun for summer.  I also used a matte top coat to finish.

Hope all your neons are popping!!!  ❤

Have you seen the new SCKJsatin trendmatters polish, more specifically Sinful Colors Konstellation?  This is my new favorite color.  It’s a color shifter and it dries streak free.  The SC website describes it as a mysterious pink and green duo-chrome shadeTo me the green is more of a teal.  This color is memorizing and it dries as a satin matte.  I really did not have high hopes for King Kylie’s Sinful line but this color really makes me want to head to Target and seek the other colors.  Sinful Colors Konstellation is a must have!!!

Hey polish lovers!  I am BACK!!  I have been training for a new job and it has been exhausting; I just couldn’t bring myself to get back on the computer to blog after a long day at work.  It kinda just sucked the creative flow right out of me.  But I am finally starting to feel like myself again and getting the creative juices going.  As far as the job goes; ehhhhh we will see.

Can you believe it is almost Feburary again, yowza?  That was a fast month!  Tonight I have a Pre Vday GLAM mani to show you all.   I did these last night and feel like I finally have cute enough nails to share with the world.

This is a 3:2 mani.  I usually do 3:2 mani when I can’t decide on just one look.

On my thumb, middle and pinky I did Zoya Trixie.  Trixie is a ultra metallic foil silver.

On my ring and index fingers I used Zoya Mae.  Mae is a magenta pink which is almost shimmery.

Then over all my nails I added Square Hue Night Fever.  Night Fever is a super holo glitter top coat.  Love this glitter.

Now for the stamping, ready to feel the love?  Over my Mae nails I did roses from Pueen roses from plate 80 using Konad black stamping polish.  Over my Trixie nails I stamped on hearts using Pueen plate 55 using Konad black stamping polish.

I really love this look.  The glitter under the stamping really takes this look from cute to glamourous.

Happy polishing!

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 I am continuing with my Valentine theme nails.  I hope you love them as much as I do.

Love is in the air with this manicure because I am head over heels in love with Zoya Demi.  When looking at Demi in the bottle it is meh; but once I added it to the nail I swooned.  Demi is a beautiful shade medium purple,  but the color with my skin tone is to die!  I know purple is not traditionally a “Valentine” color but stay with me to see how I made it work.  Somehow I knew right away Demi had to be paired with China Glaze glitter polish Put a bow on it.  Put a bow on it is a fuchsia/purple glitter that really looks perfect with Zoya’s Demi.

Here is how I created this not so traditional Valentine manicure:

On all my nails but my middle finger I used Zoya Demi.  Then on my pinky and thumb I added “my glitz” CG Put a bow on it.  I love how the Demi base made this glitter pop!!

On my middle finger I knew I wanted to do an accent nail.  What better than hearts on the middle finger, right!  So I did a white base using Julep Kate.  Kate is a pearl white frost, a perfect clean base for my stamping.  Over Kate I stamped on some lovely hearts from the Bundle Monster plate BM-620 using Demi.  I Love this multi size heart image.  The purple hearts over the white is amazing.  Then I got all mattey and put Zoya matte top coat over just the white heart nail.

What do you think?  I happen to LOVE them.  I love the purple, the glitter and the stamped accent nail.  What is not to love about this combo ❤

Happy polishing!

Hi fellow nail polish lovers.  Six Days ago I had my 3rd blog anniversary; wow three years worth of almost weekly or twice weekly blog posts about my nails.  That is right about when I hit a blogging brick wall.  Maybe the numerous halloween manicures did me,lol or maybe it is because I am in hibernation mode because it gets dark by 5.  But I was questioning why do I do this blog?  Is it to justify to my husband why I buy so much nail polish?  Or maybe it is because I love to share with you all my passion for nail polishing.  I think both reasons are partly why I do it.  I am blogging right now so I am pretty sure I am not ready to quit just yet.  We will see how it goes from here.  Don’t worry while I took my blogging break I did not run around with naked nails.  I did in fact photograph my manicures so I thought I would share them with you tonight.

China Glaze; Boundary of Memory; Cho Cho Choose you

This is a 3:2 mani.  China Glaze Boundary of Memory glitter on the two accent nails.  This is from The Giver collection.  Boundary of Memory is packed full of fine black, silver, copper and brown glitter.  It is an amazing glitter.   On my three is China Glaze Choo Choo choose you.  I have been dying to play with this color!!  I got it back in September but have been waiting for November fall manis.  How do I explain this color?  I can’t really, it is few colors all in one bottle.    In some light it is purple, wait no it is green or maybe it is bronze all with a gold shimmer.  This color is TO DIE!!!!  One of my new favs for sure.  My only wish for this manicure is that I did all my nails in Choo Choo choose you, this is color doesn’t need no stinking accent nails.

Ok this is what is on my nails now, actually I am just getting ready to take it off.

Zoya; Aurora; Claudine

Look at that holo sparkle!!  Another 3:2.  Zoya Aurora is on my three it’s a purple pink holo glitter polish.  Ooo la la is all I can say.  I love everything about this color.  On my two I did Zoya Claudine.  This color is a frosty metal grey.  I don’t know if you know but frosty finishes are not my favorite so I added Aurora to the tips.  It is not my favorite look but not horrible.

I still have no idea what color I am doing tonight, wish me luck.

Happy polishing!

Oh hello Monday, you came back so soon.  I have a happy flowery skittle mani to share with you today.  But first, I have a confession.  Took my daughter school shopping Friday but we just had to stop at two Sally Beauty Supply stores to check out their half off red tag sale.  I got 13 new hues.  Mostly China Glaze; 11 out of the 13 were half off red tag, so under $2.00 a bottle.  How could I pass up that deal??  A lot of these are from the China Glaze Summer 2014 Off Shore Collection, so dreamy!!

IMG_7431

So the colors used for my flowery skittle creation are mostly from that last Sally haul:

Pepto Pink is Feel the Breeze

Peachy Orange is If in doubt, Surf it out

Lemon yellow is Sun upon my Skin

Pistachio green is Be more Pacific

Tiffany blue is one I already had in my collection For Audrey

Once I got each color on my digits like skittles (I did three coats of each color) and they were completely dry I added some fun bundle monster stamping images with my Konad black stamping polish.

The bundle monster plates I used are as follows:

The two daisy like flowers on thumb,middle and ring finger are from BM-016

Hibiscus type flower on my pinky is from BM-225

Butterflies on index finger are from BM-205

I think these turned out pretty darn cute.  I did add a matte top coat over my stamping.  I thought it made the colors pop more.

I just love how the pastel colors are semi neon.

I am pretty happy with my recent binge polish buy you just gotta love that kind of a deal 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
