I am too excited NOT to post this!

I was in walmart today, (75% off all their christmas gift sets!) so I bought a ton and got so much for only 20 dollars. Then I went to the nail salon I have in my walmart and look what I got for 8 buck! OPI Merry Midnight!!

Ahhhh <3
I also ended up getting OPI I Brake For Manicures, OPI Russian Navy, and OPI Down To My Last Penny. All 8 dollars each :)

Now I know I showed you China Glaze Blue Years Eve earlier, but I actually ended up stamping it with my HUGE stamping plate. I did mess up on one finger since I didn't stamp hard enough but I have both hands to show you. I stamped with Pure Ice Pussy Cat. Seriously, Pure Ice has some great polish's to stamp with for only 2 dollars at Walmart. I love using them for stamping.

China Glaze Blue Years Eve

I have a beautiful bright/dark blue polish for you today! It is China Glaze Blue Years Eve. I figured with the name it was appropriate to wear this weekend with New Years Eve being tomorrow :). This is a beautiful polish, which seems similar to China Glaze Blue Iguana. I couldn't get that to picture right when I wore it. Though since then I have changed the settings on my camera. I hope you guys like this as much as I do!

*I did wear this as a french tip not too long ago to my Christmas party with snowflakes*

Essence Where is the Party?

I am wearing my very first Essence polish!! I don't have an ulta thats close to me (mine is 40 minutes away) so my very good friend Andrea from Addicted to the Allure of Beauty ( I mention her a ton lol ) got this for me in a swap! I LOVE this!! It went on sooo smooth and it's such great wear! This is Essence Where is the Party?

Now this next picture shows the green in the duochrome

It only shows in the bottle, couldn't get it in the nail.

I love this polish sooo much. It is simply amazing.

More blue!!

Today I finally got to make a full mani out of the new big plate I ordered. I got it for 37 dollars, at this site here. This honestly worked like a dream. Some of the full images are bigger than konads which works perfect for my thumb! Here is the picture again:

Seriously, for 37 dollars this is a steal!! I also just ordered an XL plate (the one shown is XXL) for 20 dollars including shipping. It won't be shipped out til after the holidays but it's SO worth it!!!!

For this mani I used Lunar Eclipse as a base color. One of the big images on this plate, and konad baby blue special polish.

Love :)

Blue's Today

Well, I currently have the stomach bug. I am drinking hot tea so it is settling my stomach. If you have the bug, seriously drink hot tea. It always stops my symptoms. But anyways, I have a mani I did for my family Christmas party. I couldn't get the snowflakes to show well so only one picture to show you:

I used ALL China Glaze Polish's. The blue is Blue Years Eve, the base color of Golden Meringue, Sci-Fi as the snowflakes, and topped off with Fairy Dust (can't really see). I got SO many compliments on this!

Now for today I am showing a layering I made. My best swapper as I have mentioned before, Andrea from Addicted to the Allure of Beauty, sent me another swap package! Look at all these goodies:

I will be swatching more of these when Christmas is over, and I am on best rest for my next foot surgery. What else can I do when on bed rest?? lol.

I used first was the big Ulta polish called Mint Condition, and then layered Max Factor is Bombshell Blue to make this BEAUTIFUL color shown here:

I don't have any blue color that looks like this in my stash so I am SUPER excited! I can't stop staring at my nails... LOL.

Have a great Holiday everyone!!!

Christmas Shatter

I seriously need to stop shopping. Between Christmas shopping and spoiling myself, I am getting to be broke.  Starting right away, I am going on a LIMITED buy. Pretty much buying all necessities and maybe a treat here and there. If I try to go cold turkey, it just doesn't work for me. Anyways...

I decided I wanted to do a christmas shatter. I used the base color of China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada (Boyfriends idea) and used Red Shatter by OPI on top. I really like this! I tend to love shatters that have a jelly-ish color. I don't know, just me lol.

China Glaze Traffic Jam

I have just a simple swatch for you! I bought China Glaze Traffic Jam and it came in a few days ago. I decided to put it on. I didn't realize it was a close color to Designer Satin which I also have. Still beautiful though!!

My 200th post!

I am proud to announce my 200th post! I am excited for keeping up with the blog for so long. For you guys today I have french tips in OPI DS Temptation. I think I have found my favorite french tip combo ever. My boyfriend, who usually doesn't like when I wear purple nail polish, actually said when he seen it that it was a very nice mani. That's a huge WOW to me. I love purple nail polish, but he's not crazy about it unless it's neon lol. So anyways, here it is. Sorry for being a bit blurry, this was one hard polish to photograph.

Smitten with Mittens and Snowglobe!

I have a nice red glittery mani for you guys today! The base color is Smitten With Mittens by OPI (OMG LOVE), with a layering of China Glaze Snowglobe on all but my ring finger. I used some of my new stamps I got off of amazon ( The plate number is RA 121.

I used China Glaze Icicle for the stamp so it doesn't seem to have worked well with this bright red.. but the stamp is a holly with a bow. I stamped it twice. Here is the stamp:

The one I used was right underneath the RA 121.

Not one of my best mani's =\.

Essie Trophy Wife

Now that it's December, I love to wear different shades of blue. Like for today, I am wearing Trophy Wife by Essie. I love this shade so much that I actually have it on my toes too. If you know me, usually my nails and toes NEVER match lol. Here it is:

This is a dream to put on. With Essie, my nail polish lasts such a long time with no chips. This is absolutely beautiful!!

I found this at Target if anyone would like it :)

I then layered this years Sparkle Top Coat by Finger Paints. Then I stamped with my bundle monster plate bm 11 with China Glaze Icicle.
