LA Colors Electrified

Another beautiful swatch for you guys today! It is LA colors Electrified. I got this at Dollar Tree for a dollar. It's a beautiful metallic pink.

I am liking shooting in RAW format on my camera. The colors are more accurate. And look at that closeup! It's exactly what's on my nails :)

Purple with purple/pink flower

I still have my OPI Ink as a base color (love it so much) and with the hello kitty plate from the Born Pretty Store I got for free, I stamped a flower with China Glaze Joy. I got myself outside (hopping along since I still can't put weight on my right foot) and took a few pictures.

I switched my camera to take RAW images now. So hopefully it looks better. I have two monitors going and I had to adjust the color to get the second one to work better so I can't see it all too accurately.

To me, the last one is most accurate in colors :)

And here is a picture of my yorkie

Cute, but a huge terror!! lol

I have swatches of my very first Essie!! I've used one in the past it was the base of a few french manicures but it was so extremely sheer, it doesn't really count. So here is E-nuf is E-nuf! I love this color and how amazing it went on! This is a bright coral. I know fall is here but I needed some brightness to break up the dark shades I have been wearing.

OPI- Glacier Bay Blues

Today I have a french mani with OPI Glacier Bay Blues, which was from their old Canadian collection. This is a beautiful duochrome color. I love it! I just wish I could capture the colors better.

The stamp is from my mash plates, It is m27, stamped with china glaze Sci-fi. That is also the same color for the lines on the french part :)

Another french manicure!

I hope everyone likes french manicures cause I have another one for you! I don't love this one as much as the one I previously posted but it''s still nice. When my mom saw this she said she loved it and that I am getting really good at nail art. That definitely made me happy since all this nail stuff is relaxing and I was never an artistic person. I am very logical and this brings out a whole new side of me. Enough of my talking, here is the manicure:

This was taken indoors. I am using crutches to get around but they are killing me right now so my pictures will be kinda bad until I can walk regularly again.

The purple is Lasso My Heart from China Glaze.
The silver striper is LA colors and the silver glitter is Stripe RIte from Sally Beauty Supply
The white I used with a dotting tool and it is White on White from China Glaze.

Thank you everyone for the comments, I really appreciate it! I love reading them and I get excited when I see new ones :)

Winter/Ice Skate Mani

I know I am a bit early on winter, but when I drew the ice skate out on the nail wheel, I really wanted to make it into a manicure. I love figure skating and the reason to why I had my surgery is so I can fit into skates again and get back onto the ice. Of course I need my other foot done. Once it's all over and done with, it will be worth it.

The Base color is China Glaze - Bahamian Escape.
I then added two coats of China Glaze - Frosty on top of that.
I drew the ice skate with:

China Glaze- White on White (White Boot)
China Glaze- Liquid Leather (Laces)
China Glaze- Digital Dawn (wood bottom)
OPI- Lucerine-Tainly Look Marvelous (Blade)

Hope you like it! The baby blue and white manicure is something I will definitely wear again in winter. It's such a pretty combo.

Ice Skate and a pattern

I am showing you two designs I did. One is an ice skate (I love figure skating) and the pattern that is on my agenda book. Sorry these are on a nail wheel.

I am really not a good artist. This is why I have a lot of stamping involved in my nail designs. I literally can't draw or paint to save my life lol.

CG Midnight Ride & Orly Fowl Play

First, the surgery went great. My foot was numb for the rest of the day so I didn't have any pain. Then trying to get to sleep it came and boy is it the most painful thing I have ever endured! But I can get through this, and do it one more time after Christmas. It was foot surgery that needs to be done on both feet. I took some advil so it isn't hurting really right now.

On to the polish!

I have had this on for a few days so sorry if there is tipwear. I can't go outside since I'm kinda stuck inside so I have to do these pictures inside. I am wearing one coat of China Glaze Midnight ride, with one coat of Orly Fowl Play.There is more flakes that the pictures show, but with my lightbox at the new house I can't use it to show you. But boy did the nurses (Who were my boyfriends mom's friends and they treated me like gold) loved it!

Should be posting soon!!!

Wednesday, September 7, 2011


Just letting everyone know, I may or may not be posting a lot the upcoming weeks. I am having surgery tomorrow morning. I will try to keep my nails updated as much as possible!

Orly - Emberstone

Today I have Orly "Emberstone" to show to you. These are all indoor pictures since I didn't have time outside. This is more of like a red, with a tint of orange to it. Very beautiful and it is bright.

I love Orly. Their formula is absolutely amazing. This is a color I believe that everyone should have :)
