Nail Diary #299

October 1, 2014

Yay it’s October.  I love this month and you will definitely see that reflected on my nails.  But before I start my month of Halloween manicures I wanted to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I have a feeling almost everyone has been touched by the dreaded “C” disease in some way.  I personally have had a few family members with breast cancer so this cause is very personal for me.  I hope we continue to fight and find a cure.  Save the tatas!!!!

Here is how I got this look.  First I started with an all PINK sponge gradient manicure.

Colors used:

Closest to cuticle: China Glaze Float on

Middle: China Glaze Feel the Breeze

On the tip: Zoya Dot

Loving this very subtle pink look.

Second on my ring and middle fingers I added a ribbon stamp from bundle monster plate BM-321.

Finally on the rest of my pink nails I added Maybelline Polka Dots black and white glitter called Clearly Spotted.

I really love this look.  Be sure you try and slap some pink polish on those tips sometime this month to show your support for this amazing cause.

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Stay tuned for the next installment of the diary of a nail polish addict.

Happy almost Friday, yay!!!!
I have a fun look to show you tonight.
Check out my movie mani!!!
Have you seen Cloudy with a Chance of meatballs 2? What a darling movie. I didn’t really get into the first Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs movie but number 2 was super cute!!
I think I mostly fell in love with Barb. No she is not a monkey lol but she sure has fabulous nails!!!
So I sat down to watch the movie last night with my family and I noticed holy cow my nails look like Barb’s nails!!
What a fantastic coincidence, it was totally not planned. So I had to google her right away for a image for my blog post.
To achieve my Barb nails I used a Maybelline Color Show vintage leather polish called Lasting Lilac. It’s a dark lilac purple color. Think magenta purple that dries matte, it really does have a leather finish. But really I picked this color to use for a base for my Maybelline polka dots jelly glitter Pretty in Pink nail polish.
Pretty in pink is a pink jelly packed full of multi size black and white glitters.
I think these colors compliment each other fabulously.

Got some glitter girlie nails to show you tonight.
I needed some glitz and glamour in my life this week. Plus I just picked up some new China Glaze polishes from Sally’s buy two get one free November sale and I just had to try Put a bow on it from the HoliGlaze 2013 collection. Put a bow on it is a fabulous plum magenta glitter. Ohhhhh ahhhhh I loves it. So blingy and pretty.
So first I applied Sinful Collections Fig on all my nails but my ring finger. Fig is plum purple polish with a subtle shimmer finish. I love this color.
On my ring finger I used Sally Hansen Celeb City silver as a base.
Once that dried I applied a fabulously glitzy glitter called Charmed. Sinful Colors Charmed is a silver glitter with random rainbow colored glitters.
On my pinky nails I added a Maybelline Color Show Polka Dot glitter called Pretty in Polka. This is a black and white multi size glitter in a pink plum jelly base. These polka dot glitters are so fun. I love the contrast of this glitter especially next to the silver glitter nail.
And finally I added my Put a bow on it on my middle finger.
My index and thumbs are a glitter free zone.
Do you love my glitter trio?? I think it’s a fabulous combo. Makes me feel glamorous.
Have you picked up any HoliGlaze polishes yet? I am kind of excited to try the white textured polish that looks like snow.

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Trick on Treat
Smell my feet
Give me something good to eat!!!
Tonight is beggars night in my town. Here in Iowa we ask for a joke before we give out the candy. You got to work for your candy, muwahahahaha. I hear this is not a common practice. I wouldn’t know because I have only begged in Iowa.
So I took my mani from Monday Nail Diary #218 and added some fun Halloween images for this spooky night.
On my pinky, index and thumb I had used a SquareHue polish called Iron Horse.
On my ring and middle fingers I had used a China Glaze orange polish called Riveting.
Tonight over Riveting I added a Maybelline polka dot glitter called Dotty. Dotty is a multi size black and white glitter in an orange jelly base. Looks fab over my existing orange. Over Iron Horse I used Wet n Wild A Blank Canvas white to stamp on various images from my bundle monster plates BM-H07 and BM-413. A skull on my pinky, mr skeleton on my index and trick or treat on my thumb.
I think these turned out super sweet. Just perfect for trick or treat night.
Have a very Happy Halloween!!

Another weekend has come and gone; way too quickly I might add.
Tonight I was drawn to pink, black and white. I decided to play with 5 different fun polishes.
On thumb, index and pinky fingers I used Sinful Colors 24/7. It’s a neon pink polish that dries matte. It’s oh so bright and fun, love it.
On the middle fingers I used as a base white color Sinful Shine Wisp and the base color on my ring fingers is Sinful Colors Black on Black.
Then I played with a couple topcoats a Maybelline Color Show Shredded polish called Carbon Frost and Maybelline Color Show Polka dots topcoat called Clearly Spotted which is a multi size black and white glitter.
The Maybelline Color Show polishes were super fun to play with, especially love Clearly Spotted. These nails remind me of a 90’s neon party. You gotta love black pink and white combos.
Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

What a week, been fighting a bug for days. But I am looking forward to weekend and feeling better.
Saturday I’m headed to the local speedway to watch my brother-in-law drive a real life NASCAR. So here are my version of girlie checkered flag nails!!!
Colors used for this 3:2 mani:
Base for thumb,index, and pinky China Glaze Snap my Dragon. Love this hot pink.
Base for Middle and ring finger wet n wild white A Blank Canvas. Found this pretty at Walgreens today on the way home…99cents whoooo hooooo!! Great coverage with just 2 coats, impressive.
Ok so on Snap my Dragon I added one of my new Maybelline Polka Dot glitters Clearly Spotted. It’s a jelly based black and white multi size glitter. I only added to the bottom 3/4 of the nails. Kind of like a glitter exhaust bomb…get it NASCAR, exhaust…anyhoo, lol.
On the white nails I used my Pueen stamping plate 48. The bottom middle image looks just like a checkered flag. So,I stamped that in the pink and then my wet n wild Black Creme. Double stamping is risky but well worth it.
What do you think…is it too much?!?!
I think it might be but oh wells chalk it up to the sickness. ha.
Have a great start to your weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Hello fellow nail polish lovers
Today was a happy day for me!! I got my new bundle monster holiday plates in the mail. So of course I had to play. I realize there is not holiday for awhile but that’s what cool about these plates …they have seasonal plates as well. I am in love with these plates, so thank you bundle monster!! If u love stamping this collection is a must have.
Colors I used in this 3:2 mani:
Middle and ring fingers China Glaze Exotic Encounters a dark cream teal.
Thumb, index(ignore my cuticle, ouch) and pinky Maybelline Color Show Drops of Jade from the polka dot collection. This jade jelly has multi dimensional black and white glitters. I found these at Target on Friday and bought the whole set…love these pretties. I also seen them at Walmart if you are on the hunt for them.
On Exotic Encounters using Sinful Colors Wisp I stamped on the left image from bundle monster plate BM-H09. The image transferred like a dream. It’s not perfect because of my stamping skills but I get better each time.
I love how these turned out, the stamp reminds me of summer dandelions blowing in the wind.

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
