I was taking photos today of my nails (as a blogger does) and looked down and saw how awesome my pedi looked so snapped a quick picture to share with you. If you hate feet, don’t click through to see them!

Oh my gosh you all. I am so over summer vacation and it just started. >.< And I just realized that it’s June and my scheduled posts ran out at the end of May. So ummm I actually need to do some swatching and scheduling. haha!

water slide decal from who knows where 😀
multichrome nail disc gems from also who knows where (actually I think Nicole Diary)
This was such a fun mani! My husband doesn’t often understand my mis-matched manis but honestly, I don’t care. 😀 I mean, my socks don’t even usually match and it drives him crazy.
Aww, I love you too, KBShimmer! ❤ What, you don’t see a vague shape of a heart here? Don’t ask me how I accomplished that because I have no idea.
KBShimmer No Comet, 4 coats plus top coat. This was sheer, more sheer than I expected. Next time I use it, it’ll be over a base color.

Sally Hansen White on Time, 2 coats [press sample, previously swatched]
Crystal Parade Mixed Sizes Crystal Shimmer
When I saw No Comet, I really wanted to do something classy with it but I really had no idea what. That’s when I went searching through my drawers of nail art, gems, vinyls, and other assorted ephemera. I came across some old water slide decals I had purchased from KBShimmer and had a “light bulb” moment. 😀 It reminds me so much of blue china dishes!
Sally Hansen Rosy Quartz [previously swatched, press sample], 2 coats plus top coat
Bee’s Knees Lacquer Uni-Cornicopia November COTM
Crystal Parade gems
I really gotta say that Rosy Quartz is one of my favorite sheer polishes. I paired it with this holographic polish from Bee’s Knees Lacquer and really loved how soft and yet powerful it was!
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Frill Seeker, 2 coats and no top coat
I was planning on using this as a base to a mani that didn’t work out, but I’ll show you the swatch anyway. It applied really nicely and for not having a base coat or top coat, it dried fairly fast as well.
Sally Hansen White on Time, 2 coats [press sample]
B Squared Lacquer Kandi (pink), Rave (yellow), Down Tempo (blurple), The Drop (mint)
Tonic Polish Innocence, 2 coats plus top coat. Formula on this is thick, but in the perfect thickness for me.
Blackheart Beauty AB Star Gazer, 3 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat. This is thick, in a cloying-never-drip-even-though-it-seems-like-it’s-gonna-drop-any-second way. Ugh. Sure is pretty though.
I’m so freaking pleased with how my Easter Day manicure turned out that I just have to show you right away! I don’t ever wanna take it off, that’s how much I love it – and I have copious amounts of pictures to prove it. 😛 I loosely followed this tutorial from alla_nails on instagram for the smooshy part of the manicure.
