"Jade is the New Black" and Finger Paints

I finally splurged and got OPI "Jade is the New Black" I have been thinking about getting this color for weeks, and I'm so glad I did!!! This is my favorite green right now. I wish I had gotten it sooner. Ahhh, I love it!

This is my first Finger Paints nail polish. I got it on sale at Sallys for $2. It's "Mural Mural on the Wall" topped with a shimmery gold flakie from Cover Girl.

On another note, I've been working alot lately.... and working out again! I'm trying to go to the gym at least 3 times a week. So far to good!

Essence "Ultimate Pink" and SH "Byte"

This is Essence "Ultimate Pink." I picked it up for .99 cents! It's a pretty pink, magenta creme.

I topped it with Sally Hansen HD "Byte" which is a shimmery pink glitter, traces of blue.

Purple and Gold NOTD

Half moon mani with Color Club "Wild at Heart" and China Glaze "Medallion" inspired by my favorite gold and purple earrings

The flash really shows off the glitter and different colors in the purple

Some NOTDs

Sally Hansen Insta-dri in "Snappy Sorbet" I tried to to a sponge gradient look with a lighter color peach polish and then a sheer white on the tips. I looks way cooler with the flash.

With flash! (you can really see the gold shimmer from the 2nd polish)

Sea Foam Green Mani! I used Sally Hansen "Mint Sprint" as a base and then sponged on Sinful colors, "Mint Apple" and then a sheer white. Last I added a shell from the BM plates!

Last is "Bite the Bullet" from Wet and Wild. Its a pretty dusty purple, that I actually got bored with after only one day.

"You Don't Know Jacques" Suede

This is "You Don't Know Jacques" Suede by OPI. The bottom pic is without the nail art and top coat. I've seen the leopard print with color accents before, but it was fun to try it. I used "Blue Blast" by Sally Hansen and a Konad leopard plate.

I'm no Super Woman

I had to call into work for the first time today. Blah, I feel like sh!t and have for my past 2 days off. The main reason I'm upset is because I've had to work extra when people call in and it sucks. So thank you in advance to anyone who helps me out tomorrow from 6:45a-3:15p. Now I think I will get some more rest and try to taper myself off the Benadryl and nasal spray.

Not me

The theme was "Bling Bling" and we had to use silver, gold, rhinestones, glitter, etc... This is my first design challenge, and it was so fun!

I used a gold holo polish from Goldie that I found at Marshalls, and topped the tips with Color Club "Magic Attraction" Last was a diamond stamp from the Bundle Monster plates and a rhinestone!
