Neon Pink NOTD

This is another "Electro Candy" from the Color Club Neon collection. I added some rhinestones on the ring finger.
I topped it with "Diva" a sheer glitter from Ulta to tone it down a bit.
I also want to thank everyone for following and for the nice comments on my blog!

Purple Sparkle NOTD

I found Essence cosmetics at Ulta. Each polish was only .99 cents! I topped the purple with a glitter topcoat from Cover Girl.

This is the only good picture I could get of this color. It's NYC "Molten Metal" from the Dollar Store.

Orly "Iron Butterfly" Matte

These are just a few looks I did with Orly "Iron Butterfly" matte. I tried to to a Ruffian manicure, with the gold half moon on the bottom on the nail bed, but I don't like it. So I tried a teal half moon look (made with hole-reinforcer stickers) and covered the whole nail with a matte top coat. On the ring finger I used a shiny top coat and a sticker!

My peacock earrings :)

Yellow NOTD

Old pics I found on my phone of my first yellow mani. I added a leopard print stripe from Konad plate m57. I think this is a LA Girl brand from Forever 21. I'm not sure, but I like it!

Purple and "Pink" NOTD

ETA: I finally found some purple earrings to match my nails. These were only $3!

The finished product!
I used China Glaze "Grape Juice" on the bottom part of the nail and Claire's Mood polish "Calm/Wild" on the top.

Before I added the glitter stripe


ETA: next day nail art from my new fauxnad plates from China!

A simple red-ish/pink-ish mani with NYC polish from the dollar store. #235 (no name) I really like the depth of this color and I will definitely be using it again!

It matches my make up bag!

"Wild and Willing" with "Rustic"

Edited to add nail art! I got bored and I probably should have stopped while I was ahead, but I kept experimenting. Oh well :)

I've been getting into brownish bronze colors alot more lately. Color Club "Wild and Willing" is a sheer bronze glitter, so I layered it over Wet and Wild "Rustic" (on thumbs and ring fingers) You can really only see the difference with the flash on.

no flash


Color Club "Love 'em Leave 'em"

All the recent bright colors I've been doing really made me appreciate this simple, nude "work appropriate" color. It's hard to see, but there is a subtle shimmer and holo effect that a topcoat dulls :( but in the sun it shines quite a bit.

Roller Set/Wrap

I tried to roller set my hair yesterday, but the curls looked crazy, so I just wrapped it overnight. This is the final result. I like it! I just wish it didn't take so long. (45 min to roll, 1 hour to dry)

Silver and Gold

My silver and gold nails with Sally Hansen "Celeb City" and Orly "Luxe"

My favorite ($2) earrings at the moment.

Orly "Purple Velvet"

This is Orly Matte"Purple Velvet" with a top coat and Konad plates m77 and m62. I used Sally Hansen "Celeb City" to stamp jewelry designs on one hand.

I had such a crazy day at work yesterday I really wanted a color that wasn't as bright for my day off. Although I didn't feel like filling out an incident report, I am still mad I got KICKED in the chest by a patient yesterday. You had to be wasn't even my fault. :(

On a lighter note, I am finally getting my RN II, and weekend pay! (Now I just have to check on the back pay for the work I've already done.)

My Summer Haul

Ok, I think I will be cutting down on my polish buying until I use/try/swatch most of the polish I already have. This is my most recent and biggest haul to date. I think all of these colors are bright, beautiful and perfect for spring and summer.

Strawberry Fields NOTD

This is "Strawberry Fields" by China Glaze. I put ChG Wireless holographic top coat over my middle finger and thumb with a konad bow. Strawberry Fields kinda has a gold shimmer to it that I thought matched my earrings!
