Half-Moon Manicure with Zoya Pixie Dust Lorna + Bad Bitch Polish Blue Moon

Press Sample buttonMorning everyone! Can I just say that I’ve always loved Labor Day weekend? And purely for selfish reasons too, as my birthday almost always falls on this weekend; as a kid I always felt special that I had a 3 day weekend for my birthday. 😛 At any rate, Friday I showed you Bad Bitch Polish September duo and today I have nail art to show you with Bad Bitch Polish Blue Moon and Zoya Pixie Dust Lorna. (P.S. Hit that link for details on purchasing Blue Moon!)

Julie G Bohemian Dreams nail polish collection nail art

Press Sample buttonHey everyone! My apologies for my late review of the 6 JulieG nail polishes from the Bohemian Dreams collection. Like I explained earlier this week, I’ve got a very mobile 7 month old, a terrorizing two-year old, and 2 older kids headed back to school next week. Oh, and our family is moving to another part of town. Yikes. Anyway, my time has been limited, not enough time to sit and do swatching. So….I’ve been wearing a lot of my manis for a few days lately, including all the manis I created with this collection. Long story short, I don’t have swatches of all the polishes BUT I do have manicures with all of them. Let’s get on with it, already. LOL!

A quick application note: all these cream polishes applied like buttah. Seriously. I mean, the colors aren’t revolutionary but I am a sucker for a great cream polish and all of these fit the bill. Continue reading

Art Deco nail art with Zoya Elphie, Olivera, Alicia, and Darling Diva Polish Fairy Pee holo

Happy Monday everyone! I can’t believe August is tomorrow. Today we have an open house for the kids’ school and it’s like…holy crud, school is starting in a few weeks. Sh*t…we have how much left to do?? Ugh. So let’s distract everyone with pretty nails, mmkay? I’ve used Zoya Elphie, Olivera, and Alicia [gift] with Darling Diva Polish Fairy Pee Holo [press sample]. I’ve also used some nail studs from Crystal Parade.

Zoya Elphie is a deep forest green textured polish. This is 3 coats and no top coat. I did find that it needed that third coat to really deepen the color.  Continue reading

Mixed Animal Print holographic manicure with CrowsToes Nail Color, OPI, Turtle Tootsie Polishes, Painted Polish

Morning all! I hope that if you’re having a heat wave like we are in Montana, you’re staying cool! I am sweltering and not staying cool because my 6month old is on a nursing streak and he’s sweaty – which makes me sweaty and him more sweaty. Ugh. It’s a sweaty mess. How about a mani that isn’t a mess….or maybe it is? I dunno. At first I didn’t really like it but then it grew on me. Let me know at the end what you think.

CrowsToes Damned If You Do, Turtle Tootsie Polishes Aquarius, Painted Polish Gray Goddess  | Be Happy And Buy Polish

So I started off with OPI You’re So Vain-illa on my ring and pointer fingers. On my pointer finger, I used a giraffe print (maybe it’s a cheetah print?) decal and used Painted Polish Gray Goddess, then outlining with China Glaze Liquid Leather. I added some gems from Crystal Parade in the corner – didn’t really like how it turned out though. Continue reading

Spark-tacular is a clear based glitter topper with glitters of silver, orange, green, pink, and blue. This is base heavy but has a good spread of glitters. This is 1 coat and no top coat over OPI Stay Off My Lawn!!

I dunno, I expected IYGIHI to be way prettier based on the bottle, so I’m a little disappointed.
