Flower to Flower+M64

For Christmas I got my friend two OPI polishes, and one of them was OPI Flower to Flower (which I think was from the Summer Flutter collection...) My friend wanted a floral design so she chose the flower image from the plate M64. Since I am kind of into rhinestones right now, I added 1 rhinestone to each of her thumbs and ring fingers ^_^

Couldn't decide which picture to post so I decided to post both of them :P
Happy New Year everyone!!

Revlon Minted+NOTD

Probably my most favorite mint green polish is Revlon's Minted

NOTD... simple, I know :P

Minted is a GORGEOUS mint/pastel green. The application was extremely patchy on the first coat, got better on the second, and perfect on the third. Dry time is fairly fast. I also wanted to mention that I got the rhinestones from a CVS store. Oh, and Minted is a tad bit more green. 

Do you own Minted?

New Polishes+Swatch: The Show Must Go On!

Hi everyone, these are the new nail polishes that I got for Christmas :)

Revlon Minted

 OPI Little Teasers (Burlesque Collection)

Here is a swatch of "The Show Must Go On!"

Isn't it gorgeous?? The Show Must Go On! a very pretty... red-ish pink/coral/orang-y color (If that makes sense lol). It's very duochrome-y. Think Mac Bad Fairy.... except lighter. Anyways, this polish is absolutely stunning, definitely worth checking out :) Well, those are the polishes I got for Christmas, did you get any nail polish??

P.S. I redid my nail polish collection tab, so be sure to check that out :)

For Audrey+Cute Flower Design

 Hi everyone :) Even though it is Christmas eve, I don't have a Christmas mani to show you. However, I do get to show you this super cute flower design :) (This is not on my nails at the moment BTW, I did this last week)

As you can see, my index finger is really short now :/ I am hoping to get Nail Envy by OPI for Christmas though, that should help with strengthening my nails so they don't break. Anyways, for my Christmas manicure, I am using Orly's Meet Me Under the Mistletoe, just painted, no Konad. Well, that's it for today, MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!! :)

Floral Mani

Hi everyone, tonight I am going mini golfing and I wanted to have my nails all nice and painted, this is what I came up with :) I think it turned out nice. Also, the design on every finger except my ring finger, is from this little Konad plate that has no name, it's just a plate with 4 designs on it, and I got it in this little kit. Anyways, just wanted to let you know :)

Abstract Snowflake

 Hi everyone :) Lately I have been playing around with free hand nail art, and this is what I came up with today:

The reason why I am only showing you the thumb is because the snowflake on my other fingers are really tiny because my nails are still so friggin (excuse my french) short  >:( Anyways, overall I kind of like it, what do you think??

P.S. If you want to see my whole hand, just let me know and I'll upload a picture

Review: Hard Candy Matte Topcoat

Hi everyone :) Today I have a review of the matte topcoat by Hard Candy (Matte-ly in Love)

 I also have some swatches to show you :) I chose a cream and shimmer/glass fleck/duo-chrome finish so you could see how the matte topcoat looks on different finishes:

Matte Topcoat: Index and ring finger 

 Matte Topcoat: Index and ring finger

 Matte Topcoat: Index and ring finger

Matte Topcoat: Index and ring finger

First of all, I want to say that this was the first matte top coat I have ever tried, so I can't compare it to Matte Magic by China Glaze, or Matte About You by Essie. I do want to say that I had a wonderful experience with this polish, almost immediately you could see the change, it dried really fast, and it truly dried matte, not satin or "plastic" :) The price was really good too, I got it for $4 at Walmart.  Bottom line, for an affordable price, you can get a good quality matte topcoat, that has good application and formula (the brush was decent too), it doesn't smear your Konad (as long as you use a generous amount), and the packaging is super cute. So ya, I definitely recommend it :)

  • Second Swatch: OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui
  • Top Coats Used: Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love,  Seche Vite

Candy Cane Nails

 Hi everyone :) Yesterday I decided to paint my nails in a candy cane design. Not sure how I feel about these yet...

The thumb is my favorite :)

So ya, not sure how I feel about it... also, I know the tape job isn't very good, but it was my first time :)
I think the thumb turned out the best. Also, if my nails were a 'lil but longer (like my thumb) I think it would have turned out better, what do you think??

Winter Manicure

 Hey everybody :) Today I did my friends nails using the same image as the last mani I posted (You can read that one here). This, I think, is the winter version, anyway, I really liked the way it turned out. Also, sorry about the bad picture, it is too wet to take the picture outside and I have really bad lighting in my room... here is what it looks like:

Again, sorry about the bad picture. Well, thats pretty much it for today, thanks so much for stopping by :)
