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

Random Raindrop Nail Art with Baroness X, CrowsToes Nail Color, Femme Fatale, Polished Vino

Purchased by Me buttonMorning all! It’s the first official day of summer vacation and my goodness I’m not ready for the heat of the summer yet! We seem to be having warmer than usual weather here in my part of Montana so I’m dying of heat already – which, btw, we don’t have central air conditioning in my house so it can get unbearable! I’m wishing for some rain but raindrop nail art with Baroness X, CrowsToes Nail Color, and Femme Fatale Cosmetics will have to do.

Manicure for Roselynn of Manicured & Marvelous

Hi everyone! I have a special post for you today. Some of you may know Roselynn of Manicured & Marvelous; she’s a great blogger, nail artist, and all around cool person. She’s been having some health problems lately and I wanted to do something to cheer her up. I asked some other bloggers if they’d be interested in recreating her manis and everyone posting on the same day. So here we are!

Happy Birthday Barbie nail art manicure | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I decided to recreate Roselynn’s Happy Birthday Barbie! manicure. Well, I had a long list of manicures that I couldn’t decide from, so my husband helped me by picking this one. Let me tell you, I haven’t done such a super-girly manicure in…like, forever. LOL 😀

On my middle finger, I created a gradient with Daisy Jane and Learned Doctors. Then using OPI Black Onyx, I attempted to recreate the Barbie logo, but I think I kinda failed. I did do the same nail art on my Cinderella hand, but the Barbie logo looked like a knight chess piece. haha!
