More cute nubbins...

I think these turned out cute as well(:

I used 2 coats of Orly Green With Envy (HERE) and stamped it with the image from, again, my miniature image plate. Since it is pretty tiny I stamped it twice. Once on top and once on the bottom... it somehow turned out looking pretty good, lol. What do you think?? :)

Info On Franken: Two posts from now I will try it out ok? :) I want my nails to be a little bit longer and plus I have another mani idea in mind, lol. Also, what do you think I should name it? You can view my franken (HERE).

  • Base Color: Orly Green With Envy
  • Stamp Color: Luv My Nails White
  • Plate: Mini Plate (No Name)

My First Franken

I have had this bottle of NYX Pink Avenue for a while but I never use it. It's a flakie but there just ISN'T enough of them in there. I also had this pretty teal color that I love but I have one similar to it so I decided to mix them together and this is how it turned out...

I haven't swatched it yet but I plan to soon(: I actually "demo-ed" it on my thumb and it was kind of lumpy (because of the flakes) but hopefully it won't do that when real swatching time comes around.

For this I poured about 1/4 Sally Hansen The Real Teal into a full bottle of NYX Pink Avenue. I mixed and mixed and viola! This baby was born.

Not sure how I feel about this yet... what are your thoughts?

Cute Nubbins....

I think I just made my nubs look cute... yaaa, I am pretty sure I did(:

Don't you love that little flower?! I think it looks so nice and crisp(: I started off with two coats of OPI Jade Is The New Black (HERE) and stamped it with the little flower image on this miniature plate that I got in a kit. I think these turned out cute, do you??

Guest Nails(:

Hello lovelies(:
I gave my friend a konadicure today, check it out :)

I think this turned out super cute(: Courtney (these are her hands/nails) really liked it. Also, I went swimming the other day and the pool water completely destroyed my nails so on my "picture" hand I have nubs. They aren't the worst nubs I have ever had so I might be brave enough to actually post something with them.... Sabbatha from Spooky Nails has sort of been inspired me to not be embarrassed by my short nails lol, hers look really good I think. 

Anyway, thanks for reading and have a great Tuesday(:

The One That Got Away (PIC HEAVY)

I think I am going to let the photos do the talking...

The first two photos were taken in the shade and the rest in sunlight. 

This beauty is The One That Got Away. The fuchsia base is packed with pink/purple/fuchsia and gold glass flecks. And if you look hard enough, you can even see some green glass flecks. You have no idea how much I love this polish... it's just so pretty! This is 2 coats.

10 Blogs:

OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui

Suzi Says Feng Shui is my go-to polish. Whenever I don't know what to wear, I wear this.

The first picture is probably the most color accurate. That was taken in the shade, the rest show what it looks like in direct sunlight. It's gorgeous isn't it?? The rest of the photos are just a tad bit brighter than what it really is. As for the last picture... just same weird stamping that I did... wasn't that great, I was running out of polish :/

Suzi Says Feng  Shui is this amazing blue... It's not dark nor is it bright. I am not exactly sure what to call this shade... it has a little more black to it than your average cobalt blue. The formula on this was just like any other OPI creme, amazing. This is 2 coats pre top coat.

Bet It All On OPI+Dots!

I added some cute polka-dots to Bet It All On OPI (HERE). Cristina from Let Them Have Polish! gave me inspiration for this mani.

I applied a topcoat on my pinkie and the decided I liked it without the top coat just because I thought it looked nicer when it had texture. I kind of messed up on the dots but since this mani is abstract, you can't really tell. 

Do you love polka-dots?

Bet It All On OPI

A couple of weeks ago, my "boss" (I help out at her store) gave me some of her old nail polishes. One of them was Bet It All On OPI, an amazing red/orange.

Bet It All On OPI is a "black label" which I think means it's not 3-free. I am not sure though, if I am wrong, feel free to correct me(: I thought this would be a jelly polish just because it looked sheer on the brush, but it went on surprisingly opaque. The formula on this was perfection (maybe because it's 3-free??).

As you can tell, Bet It All On OPI is a fiery red/orange shade. It's perfect for summer. This polish dries really shiny so I didn't apply a top coat. This is 2 buttery smooth coats.

Does anybody happen to know if they still sell this?? Just curious...

Oh, BTW, I just found this post explaining the different labels, if you want to read it, click (HERE)

Mermaid's Tail??

I decided on something simple today(:

It looks nice from a distance

Random photo that I thought was awesome

Geez, I have no idea why my nails looks so bumpy.... they are perfectly smooth, I swear, lol. Anyway, not much to say about this... it doesn't look amazing up close but I like the way it looks from a distance.
For some reason this sort of reminds me of scales on a mermaid's tail... 

Do you like subtle or stark manicures??

China Glaze Tree Hugger

Well, I finally decided to swatch Tree Hugger.

This gorgeous green is Tree Hugger. It's basically the color of a green apple with a subtle blue/green sheen. The formula on this was great, I had no problems with application. This is 2 coats with no topcoat.

I absolutely love this color, do you own it?? Do you like it??

My Stash

I got some new bins, and this morning I dumped all of my polishes on the floor, and organized them and stuff. I thought it would be fun to do a stash post so... ya, I am doing one, lol. Also, I wanted to mention that I have a really tiny collection (I think I have 56) but actually, I am quite content. Anywho, onto the photos!!

 All of my nail polishes

 All of my top coats and base coats, and "main" stamping polishes
 All of my "main" nail polishes. Organized by brand

 My mini OPI's + Sally Girl polish
 Nail polishes that I rarely ever use + borrowed polishes
 I store everything under my bed, lol
My "everything else" box. Contains Q-tips, hand creme, remover, cotton round, ETC.
(Metal Box contains my Konad plates, scraper, and stamper)

See, I told you it was tiny :P No, but seriously, it looks a lot bigger in real life. Also, the little white boxes are pretty tiny and my black box is about 4 OPI's wide and is SUPER long. What I also like about the black box is that the bottom is rubberized, which is perfect because all of my bottles won't be able to slip and slide. I tried to find tiny square black boxes but they didn't have any. The white ones work perfect though.

Like I said earlier, I am actually content with my polish collection. This way I actually wear them more than once. I mean, it's not like I don't want to buy nail polish, I just find a way to control my self :P 

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed this post :) If you want see a list/swatches of my collection, you can click (HERE) or click on the first tab on the top of my blog (right below the header).

Is your stash big or small??
