Hey everyone! Sorry I don’t have a spoiler picture for you today with my pedicure…yeah I’m being lazy. LOL. It’s work to take and edit a picture of polish bottles especially when I have limited free time nowadays. Don’t click through unless you wanna see my feets!
Morning 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.
I started off with 2 coats plus top coat of Baroness X Minthe on my middle and ring fingers. This is a pearlescent white base with green to pink shimmer. So so pretty! Continue reading
Hello everyone! Back when I reviewed the Love Your Planet nail polish trio from Bad Bitch Polish, I was itching to do something fun with Poseidon. I had bought some nail vinyls from Polished Vino and set to work with Poseidon [press sample] and Blue Steel [press sample], and some nail gems from Crystal Parade.
I started of with 2 coats of Blue Steel on my pointer, middle, and pinky fingers; 2 coats of Poseidon on my thumb and ring finger. Don’t these two go together so well? Continue reading
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!
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 😀
I’ve used 3 coats plus top coat of ILNP Daisy Jane on my pointer and pinky fingers. On my middle and ring fingers, I started with 3 coats plus top coat of Emily de Molly Learned Doctors.
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!
I used straight vinyls from Polished Vino and ILNP Summer Crush on my ring finger, along with a bow charm from Polished Vino. BTW, I adore how the flakies of Learned Doctors coordinates so well with the micro flakies of Summer Crush!
On my thumb, I used 3 coats plus top coat of Alchemy Lacquers Elixir No. 10. This was a small batch polish I was able to snap up and my-oh-my, am I glad I did!
The sun was weak when I took this picture, but you can kind of see the holographic sparkle of Summer Crush and Daisy Jane!
Please join me in sending Roselynn all your good thoughts, well wishes, and/or prayers as she continues to struggle with her health.

Hi everyone! I recently pulled out about 50 untried mainstream brand polishes, and combining that with my current stack of untried indie polishes, I have about 110 untried polishes. I decided to start a new series – Pick Three Polishes – in which I’d randomly pick three polishes, swatch each one, and then create nail art with the three. For the inaugural post I have Fancy Gloss Dark Chocolate (holo), Emily de Molly Cracks in the Walls, and Wet N Wild Ferguson Crest Syrah.
Fancy Gloss Dark Chocolate (holo) is pretty much exactly what the name says: a dark chocolate holo nail polish. LOL 😀 Formula was smooth and great. Almost a OCW *one coat wonder*, but I used 2 coats plus top coat.
