Hi everyone! Happy Saturday to you 🙂 I’m skating in late in the week with the OPI Mad Love color of the week which is nude/neutral this week. In this week’s life update, I also want to talk about an upsetting situation that happened to me this week and the importance of being kind.
I started off with 2 coats and no top coat of OPI Samoan Sand. This is fairly sheer, but does self-level nicely. Continue reading
Morning all! Today I have two polishes to show you that my hubby gave me for Christmas: I Sea the Point and Counting Carats. Funny story, it wasn’t until I was editing photos that I realized I already had I Sea the Point. haha! Oh well.
I Sea the Point is a bright blue creme nail polish. This dries matte and fast; formula is thin. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Counting Carats is a clear based gold glitter topper with small holographic glitters. This has lots of clear base but weirdly enough was thick with glitters. It does end up lumpy on the nail so when I use this again, I’ll use the sponge method to apply it.
I’m quite proud of the polishes my hubby picked out – he did pick up 2 more China Glaze polishes which I will show you at a later date. Thanks for reading!
Hi everyone! Just dropping in with a quick post about my current mani. This week the OPI Mad Love fb group’s color of the week is pink and yes it took me all week to be able to sit down and create a mani! (More on why at the life update at the end of this post.) I used all OPI polishes: Mod About You, Suzi Shops & Island Hops, Suzi’s Hungary Again, Charged Up Cherry, My Throne for a Cranberry Scone, and DS Sapphire.
I started off with 2 coats and no top coat of Mod About You (black label). This is a very pale pink-white polish. Formula was uneven but gah, I love the old OPI black label polishes! There’s something about the way they smell…yes I am a freak. 😛 Continue reading
Hi everyone! Kind of a late in the day post, I know. But I wanted to share with you my nails that I wore today for Henry’s baptism and my makeup. Life update at the end of this post!
I wanted something delicate since my outfit was kind of loud. LOL. I started with 3 coats of Sinful Colors Just Deserts from the Stoned Crystal Shimmer collection. It is slightly more pink in real life. (I’m really hoping to get swatches done of this collection this week, btw.) Then I added an iridescent glitter stud to the nails with Just Deserts on them.

Morning everyone! I’ve these Morgan Taylor polishes sitting around for probably a year and I don’t think I’ve ever tried them out. So here goes! Today I have Beach Babe, Candy Coated Coral, Going Native, and Later Alligator.
Beach Babe is a salmon pink creme with imperceptible shimmer. (It’s more salmon in real life.) Formula is uneven and sheer; it dries fast. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Candy Coated Coral is a coral pink creme. Formula is a little thin. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Going Native is a light green jelly. Formula is very sheer and uneven (as seen by the patchiness). This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Later Alligator is a bright mint green creme. Formula was nice but this is a stainer. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Though none of these are standouts, I am keeping Later Alligator and Candy Coated Coral. Which of these four do you like?
Hi everyone! I’m back again with another nail art look for OPI Mad Love’s color of the week, which is yellow and/or gold. Now, yellow isn’t really my favorite nail polish color – I looked in my melmers and I had 4 gold OPI polishes and 2 yellow OPI polishes. Not exactly swimming in this color family, if you feel me. 😛 Also, my ring finger on BOTH hands got split all the way down so I am rocking the total nub life on those fingers. Why yes, I am irritated about that! Anyway, check out my nail art below and afterwards I’ll give you a mid-week check in! (oh P.S. Go check out this nail art guest post I created for Dina at Secretary’s Nail Art!)

Hi everyone! So this past weekend I went on a nail polish hunt for the newest Sinful Colors collections: Spring Fever, Luck of the Stylish (St. Patrick’s Day), Kandee Johnson Sugar polishes, Kandee Johnson Vintage Matte polishes (the ones I was missing), Stoned Crystal Shimmer, and the Kandee Johnson Vintage Anime polishes. I also picked up some new (and old) core colors. I won’t have these on the blog this week (hopefully starting next week!) but I thought I’d share bottle shots of what I picked up! Continue reading
