I know, I've been gone forever. I've really got no excuse other than life in general. I really have a lot of respect for bloggers who keep up with their blogs consistently. It's not easy! But anyway, let's get to the polish. This is Color Club Sugarplum Fairy from their new Christmas collection. I love love love this polish. It is so beautiful in the sunlight, it sparkles like crazy.

If you were at all considering any polishes from this collection, get this one! The others are pretty, too, but this one is the best in my opinion. Until next time...hope you all are doing well!

OPI Silver Shatter!

I got OPI Silver Shatter in the mail today and had to try it right away, so here it is over Revlon Royal. My nails aren't that pretty right now, but I love it!

Essence Humpty Dumpty

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great Easter...hopefully better than mine as I've been so sick for the last four days. I'm finally starting to feel better now, so I decided to take some quick pictures of my nails.

I have never seen any of the limited edition Essence collections at any Ulta stores near me before, but the last time I was there, I spotted the Fairy Tale collection. This is Humpty Dumpty, a sort of slate-gray foil that's pretty shimmery in the light. It's nothing too special, but I do like it. Also, I cut my nails down again. I can grow them fairly long, then one always breaks on me. :(

China Glaze Sea Spray & 2030

Finally decided to stamp my nails. Haven't done this in awhile! I used China Glaze Sea Spray as the base and stamped using Konad plate m83 with China Glaze 2030, which is one of my favorite stamping polishes. I like how it turned out! But please ignore my broken pinkie's slowly growing back.

Thank you!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to drop by and say thank you and welcome to my new followers! My nails have been in quite a state lately, hence no new posts. I actually just cut them all down, and I'm starting over. And honestly I've been so busy lately that my nail polish often stays on all week and gets all chipped and ugly before I get around to changing it. Sad, I know. Also, the nail on my index finger has developed this mysterious ridge in it that wasn't there before. I assume it will grow out but it's kind of weird.

Anyway! Thank you all and welcome and I will be posting soon!

Addicted to Crackle

I know, more crackle. You can't turn around without seeing it somewhere lately. I really love these, though. They usually turn out pretty cool looking and it's so easy! This one is China Glaze Broken Hearted, the pink crackle, over Orly Shine. I got this idea for the pink over the silver from xsparkage on youtube, and I love how it turned out.

Konad with Holographic Polish

I have two designs today. The first one is from last month using Essence Just Rock It! and China Glaze DV8 with a design from Konad plate m63. I really like this design and find myself using it often.

The next one, which I'm wearing now, started with a base of L.A. Girl Vinyl Record from the Disco Brights collection. I decided it looked perfect for stamping, so I used plate m57 with China Glaze LOL.

I love this leopard print design for some reason. This one and the one above are designs I just keep coming back too. Blue is my favorite polish color if you couldn't tell, and holographic polishes are great for stamping; they work beautifully. I also love how bright this is. I'm tired of winter and snow - I'm ready for spring!

ELF Konad & Nail Stickers

Hope everyone had a great new year! I have been pretty lazy about polishing my nails lately, but with all the new spring collections coming out I think I'll have to get back on it. I can't wait for the new China Glaze collections and the Zoya spring collection looks awesome, too.

A couple of new Konad plates came out this month. I ordered them from earlier this week and they showed up today (so fast!). I also got the Konad stamping polish in yellow. So I decided to use it with plate m82 over ELF Royal Purple. This is actually my first time using an ELF polish. I got this one in a set of three at Big Lots of $2.50 and it's pretty nice. Then I used a couple of small gems to accent the flowers.


Lately I've been seeing nail sticker wraps everywhere from all sorts of brands and I wanted to try them out.

I found the Broadway Nails and the Art Club Glam Nails at Meijer. I think the Art Club ones were under $5 and the Broadway ones maybe $5 or $6. Both had a fairly good selection. I found the Sally Hansen ones at CVS and there was a huge selection of really cool designs, however, these were $10! I had some CVS extra care bucks which made these only $5, but I don't think I would have paid $10. We'll see how they work out; I will post when I use them! The bottle is something I also found at CVS and decided to try - Sally Hansen Vita Surge Cuticle Gel. My cuticles are so dry lately and this stuff looks promising. I really like that the applicator isn't a brush but more of a felt tip like a lip gloss applicator that makes it easier to massage the oil into the cuticles. I just got it today so I'll update when I have a verdict on how well it works.
