Essie "Need a Vacation"

ETA: a sunlight pic!

This is my favorite light pink so far. I topped it with some Konad (forgot the plate number, but it's my favorite!!!) I also love the name of this polish because I would love a vacation right about now. Time for another weekend at work!

Jeremy and I

I found a pic of my hubby and I from a few months ago on my desktop and though I'd add it since we don't have that many of us looking dressed up anymore. I must say that he has been very supportive of my nail polish "hobby," so much so that he moved all of my polish, jewelry and make up to the guest room so I could have my own space and bathroom. I think it makes our relationship stronger ;)

"Espres-so Yellow"

I've been on a yellow kick lately. This is "Espreso-so Yellow" from Sally Hansen. The bottom 2 pics were before I added 2 hearts, on the ring finger and thumb. I'm happy the way my nails are growing; I'm just trying not to break any at work!

Color Club "Volt of Light"

For "Neons/Brights" Week on LHCF Nail Fanatics a super bright neon highlighter yellow. It doesn't look that bright in the first pic, but in real life, it is; in fact it almost look like a light lime green. :)I topped it with a white swirly design stamp and a sheer glitter topcoat. Next time I'll have to use white as a base coat to make to color more vivid.

Black and white NOTD

Matte "Alpine Snow" with a top coat, with the bundle monster stamps from e-bay. The stamps do not cover my whole nail, so I only did half of the nail instead of trying to line it up perfectly. I like it!

Some new hoop earring with jewels. I got the idea to use black and white from them.

Gold Reinforcements

This mani was inspired by the Daily Nail blog. Check her out!

I painted my nails gold, put hole reinforcer stickers on when the gold was dry, painted blue ("Summer Splash") over it and then removed the stickers.

Some new earrings that match!

Hidden Treasure and Mochachino

Ok, so Ive been looking for Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure "Hidden Treasure" (HT) everywhere! It's my first flakie polish, and I can already see what all the hype is about. I absolutely love it and cant wait to put it over other colors!

Hidden Treasure!!!

Love 'em and Leave 'em NOTD

This is Color Club "Love 'em Leave 'em" topped with a lacy, flowery type stamp. I hate that the full nail design plates are not big enough even for my short nails. But I love this polish, and the new image plates!

Coheed and Cambria Show!!!

My favorite band Coheed and Cambria played here in Austin last week and it was awesome! I got horrible blurry pictures, but it was fun to see them again.

Claudio got a haircut :( but he is still amazing!

Maybelline "Summer Splash"

Summer Splash!

I didn't know this one was hard to find either. I got it at walgreens while looking for "Hidden Treasure" It's a beautiful blue! (dont mind the paint that spilled all over the bottle) I put a fauxnad stamp and a rhinestone on the ring finger.

(if you dont have the image plates from Bundle Monster on ebay, think about it because they are awesome!!!)

Essie "Jag-u-are" Red NOTD

I love this red from Essie! Also I got my fauxnads in the mail today! 21 image plates with 6-7 designs on each plate for only $17.99! Awesome deal from Hawaii. This is a full nail flower design stamped with some metallic China Glaze polish. On a different note, my cuticles are getting dryer... I need to remember to use my hand lotion at work :)

Sinful Colors "Shausha"

A pretty mauve/goldish duochrome. Ring finger has Orly "Rage" topped with pink glitter.
