Easy Christmas mani.

This is a very short post, since I have been SO busy! Here is a quick Christmas mani I am currently wearing.

The base color is China Glaze Vertical Rush. I have worn this color a few times, and I love it. The stripers were LA color nail art stripers. Nothing fancy.

Boston Bruins nail design

If you know me, then you would know I am from Mass, and not too far from Boston. I love sports, and I love rooting for my home teams. I am a figure skaters so of course I love my hockey. I went to my first Boston Bruins game last night, and I knew I had to support my B's in the best way possible. By doing a nail design. I didn't go too full out on this since I really had no idea what to do. This is what I came up with:

 Sorry for the blurry pictures. I'm not sure why they came out like this :(. On both hands, I did the ring finger with the Bruins logo, and the rest in alternating crackle. These are the colors I used:

From left to right: OPI Lemonade Stand by Your Man,Need Sunglasses?, Pure Ice Crackle Catwalk, Fantasy Makers Black Pearl, and China Glaze Crackle Black Mesh.

Here are some pics from the game I took:

My Thanksgiving mani.

This was my thanksgiving mani. I wanted to use my stamping plates again. I ended up buying new ones online so I should get more use out of my old ones. I used China Glaze Branding Iron as base color, stamped with China Glaze Passion. Bundle Monster plate 222. I love this! My mother also told me to keep it as long as I can because it's so pretty. She knows how I am constantly changing my nails lol. Though I have to take it off tomorrow since I am going to a Bruins game! Gotta do my nails to support my B's!!

Zoya Kotori, with an accent nail of China Glaze Some Like it Haute

Hello everyone! I have today just a simple mani. I have Zoya Kotori, with an accent nail of China Glaze Some Like it Haute. I loved this combination. Though right after I did cut my nails down since they started to feel weak, even though I have been using strengthener. This tends to happen once in a while. I cut them down to prevent any breaks.

Here it is:

I love all the comments I have been receiving! Thank you so much!

Claw Polish Sinister french tips

Here is a french tip design I did for a wedding I went to last night. My dress was black with a little bit of rhinestones. I used more polish that my swapper sent me (<3). This is Claw Polish in Sinister for the tips. Then with Phantom, I took a nail art brush and did the grey lines. The sparkle is China Glaze Fairy Dust. Finally I set it with a rhinestone. Sorry my Seche didn't fully cover the whole nails so you can see some holes where it didn't fill in.

What I forget ALL the time is I used a base color of China Glaze Golden Meringue for some extra shimmer :)

Orange Charlotte Russe polish and layered with CG White Cap

This is one of the polish's I just posted earlier that I received in a swap. It is a Charlotte Russe polish. It says it's a red polish but it looks more orange to me. But anyways lol here is the swatches!

Now here it is layered with China Glaze White Cap:

I am soooo in love right now.

Nail Mail and FC Golden Honey

I just did another swap with Andrea from Addicted to the Allure of Beauty. This is my second one and I am SO happy!

Here is what she sent me:

As I am typing this, I am prepping my nails for the Charlotte Russe polish. How cute is the animal print cap?!

My swatch today is Golden Honey from the Femme Couture nail polish collection. I don't think I've ever seen someone post a FC polish. I love this brand and you can find it at Sally's, though there isn't much to choose from. When I looked at this for some reason Ancient Egypt pops into my head lol.

 It is so rainy and dark out so I took the pictures inside. But I can't believe how spot on the color is. I switched to RAW image on my camera a month or so ago and it's been a lot more accurate in showing the true color of polish's.

Revlon Fierce french with hearts

I have a french manicure today. I am using Revlon Fierce. I just picked this up at walgreens, I believe its part of a new collection. I used a bundle monster stamp bm03 for the hearts. I also used Fierce for the stamping polish :)

Also, these are my new neighbors since I just moved into this house:

I couldn't find the horses at the time so I don't have any of them. I would think that you could smell them since they are so close but barely. It's not really noticeable. I love coming outside to watch them when they are at their pond. :)

I hope you love this polish as much as I do!

CG Below Deck and an accent nail

Just a quick post of the accent nail design I did with my current color Below Deck.

So sorry for upside down. I tried taking the picture from a URL with it being the right-side up, and of course it didn't work. UGH.

But anyways. I am loving this :)

Two manicures today

Hi everyone!

I have two manis for you today. Though one of them didn't go so well. I ran out of my Sally Hansen clean up pen so I felt lost and I didn't get that great of a clean up. Only one picture of this manicure.

These colors are both from the new China Glaze holiday collection. The base is China Glaze Velvet Bow. It is a very beautiful color. I did a gradient of Snow Globe on top. On my toes I actually have Winter Berry with the gradient of Snow Globe. I think I may need a backup bottle of this!

My second manicure is China Glaze Below Deck. My sally's just got this in. This before was a type of color I didn't think I would ever buy. I decided to go outside my comfort zone and try something different. I am so excited I did this before I love this color!
