So I had a post all ready for today, typed up and everything. And then somehow, it disappeared. No trace of it except that I had uploaded the pictures. Since I was starting over anyway, I decided to replace the post with this mani that I wore a couple of weeks ago with Pahlish Just Like the Setting Sun and Pretty & Polished Smoke & Mirrors.
Hey there! Serene here from Copycat Claws. When I heard Jessica was having a baby and might need some blogging help, I jumped at the chance to help out. Jessica has always been such a wonderful member of the nail blogging community that I definitely wanted to lend a hand.
For those of you who don’t know me, my little sister named my blog for me when I first started getting into nail art. It seemed I was always finding inspiration in random places (i.e. copying) and my nail art for my guest post today is no exception. Does your town have Paint Nite’s, events where people get to hang out together, usually at a bar or restaurant, and try their hand at painting? I’ve done a couple and they’re a blast (even if I don’t have much artistic ability…hence I’m a big time stamper). Sometimes I just check out their website and look at the paintings which is what happened here. I saw an awesome neon snowflake painting that I wanted to try to get onto my nails.
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!)

Beach Walk is a light sky blue based crelly polish with glitters of dark blue, aqua, light blue, and purple. Formula was very sheer, had a good thickness, and the glitters spread well; it does dry matte. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Key Lime is a light green based crelly polish with glitters of blue, green, lime green, and dark blue. Formula was very sheer with a good thickness; it does dry matte. The patchiness you see on the nails was not really apparent in real life. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Tropical Mango is a pinky orange based crelly polish with glitters of red, pink, purple. Formula was sheer with a good thickness; it does dry matte. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Surprisingly, Tropical Mango ended up being my favorite. Which one do you like best?
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
