Sorry I haven't posted in a while! My nails right now are candy corns. I need Beauty by Brittany post them and I wanted to try them for Halloween! She is a great follower to have too!
I used Sally Hansen white tip for the top (Bad idea, the yellow leaked into it so in person it looks yellowish)
The Orange was Orly Old School Orange which I thought was perfect color
The yellow was Finger Paints Art Nouv-Yellow
These are more designs I did, but sorry I don't remember what colors I used =\
That's the nightmare before Christmas. I actually used a tutorial on you tube. I don't know if the person is on here though!
And these are a bunch of random designs I did. Hope you enjoy!

I haven't done any kind of coding since I was 14, which was around 7 years ago lol and I was hoping someone could help me. I would like to have a custom layout but I don't know any kind of coding? Does anyone know of a site that could help me? I have Paint shop Pro so I know how to do some kind of graphics but it's coding that will be the killer of me. If anyone could let me know thanks!

So I was browsing CVS yesterday, and I came across the Sally Hansen Quick Car clean-up pen for manicures. I do have to say this is probably the best manicure pen I have ever used. Of course it works the best when the nailpolish is still wet. Here is a picture:

If anyone is looking for a good one buy this! It also comes with two additional cleaning heads!

Hi guys, I did another french tip today. I wanted something that would be like Fall/Halloweenish and this is what I did
For the base I used China Glaze "Golden Meringue" and the tip I used the "ICK-A-BOD-Y" for the tips. Then just my black stripe right for my black lines. I did try to do konad, but it didn't come out so I erased but you can see it a bit on the end of my ring finger.

Not only do I love nailpolish, but I also love makeup. I unfortunately don't have the money to buy mac makeup since I am in college lol. I see a lot of people buying E.L.F makeup. Is it really a good brand to buy? I usually go to Walmart and get the Covergirl, Revlon, Hard Candy etc, but I do like to expand and try new things. Any other kinds of makeup that you can let me know I would be grateful! I may start doing makeup tips but I am no pro lol.

This is the manicure I tried to post earlier but didn't show up
God my hands look so old! Lol but anyways I used
Pronto Purple (#20) of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry
Claires coat of flakes that come in that package I had shown a few posts ago. Sorry it has no name =[
Also After I taught one of my students she gave me a late birthday present! My birthday was in August but she didn't have any money then since she wasn't working the summer at our ice rink. But this is what I bought with her gift card to Sally Beauty!
Sorry for being so dark. But the color from left to right is
China Glaze: Grape Juice
China Glaze: Jetstream
This is what it looks like swatched with two coats for application:
I really wish I had some good lighting! I really think these colors are gorgeous, and I have been dying for grape juice for a long time!
I went to sally's.. again haha to buy more nailpolish. They don't have the China Glaze Holiday collection of "Jingle Bells". It's always sold out when I go. But what I did buy was this:
The China Glaze With the silver top is "Little Drummer Boy"
In back of that was the Finger Paints "Mulberry Madness" (New Winter Collection I believe)
In the Middle was the China Glaze Pepperment Cuticle Oil.
In back of that is the "Flying Dragon' by China Glaze. The one I originally bought was a bad bottle.
Finnally the far left one is "Just Plum Fun" (Same as the mulberry new winter collection)
I did swatch these but the pictures don't do anything. The polish is so much prettier in person.
Top: Just Plum Fun
Second: Mulberry Madness
Third: Little Drummer Boy
Fourth: Flying Dragon
I would post my manicure but blogger wouldn't load the picture! I'll try tonight again.

I went to Sally's today and yesterday and I picked up some great colors that were reduced/special nail polishes!
Sorry for being inverted. The two bottom colors are Dorothy Who? (blue sparkly) and Ruby Pumps (Sparkly)
Next row, the closest is the red china glaze which was Riverter rouge (was only $1.99! I believe from the Vintage Vixen 2010 Fall Collection?). The three in middle are the Orly Matte collection. The red is "Retro Red", the orange is "Old School Orange" and the blue is called "Viridian Vinyl" (All three were $1.99 each too!) And then I picked up Orly "Galaxy Girl".
Top row the ones with the silver caps are from the Holiday Collection! I got "Midnight Kisses" (The goldish color) and then Sugar Plums (Beautiful dark purple). Then the two finger paints that were on sale are called "Harvest Hues" (green) and the blue is called (Autumn Moonlight). I also found a red one but I currently can't find it in my collection lol. The finger paints were reduced to $1.99 also :)
Now this manicure I used OPI "It's all greek to me" for the bottom coat. I then did a nail stamp from the bundle monster collection. Stamp BM21. For that silver I used ORLY "Dazzle" :)
Here is another picture:
I did mess up the middle finger and the pink was on for a few days before I decided to stamp. Also sorry for the dirty window I haven't had time to clean!!

So I had a figure skating show I was in and I thought that I would do my nails for it!
So for the base color I used the Claires mood changing color the awesome/silly. It is a light pink color and in the cold it turns a darker pink, too dark to make out the design in an ice rink =\. Poor planning on my part!
Then for the design I used the Finger Paints color that was made for breast cancer month! It's called "I'm a survivor.
If you can't see well the ring finger is supposed to be a heart and just a simple line on the other side

So I went into Claires today to get some mood changing nail polish. Thank you to the ladies who have made swatches of these!
But then I noticed some other polish...
You have no idea how excited I was! I can't find Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure ANYWHERE and I searched for hours looking for it. I decided this will have to be my alternative. I just put some on and I actually like it! Sorry these pictures show no justice..
And also sorry for the mess of my nails! I didn't put a top coat on those just yet. But it's really pretty.
The red nailpolish is from the Finger Paints collection from Sally Beauty Supply. It's called "Framed in Red" It's such a pretty red shimmer.

I decided to also add pictures of my nail polish collection. As you can tell I have a lot of red/pinks!
I put it in these shoe boxes since I didn't know what else to do with them and its easier for quicker access since I had them in two zipper up bags.
I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. I haven't had time. Today I did a manicure of the new China Glaze Mummy May I. I can't put up great pictures cause it's night time and I'm stuck indoors. But this is actually a really nice dark purple with magenta-ish sparkles on it. This is great for Halloween and I think even going out to a party or something.
I do promise to upload better ones later! If anyone knows a good way to get the nail polish off after doing a manicure let me know. I usually like to use nail polish remover sticks but now every time I buy them they are already dry!
