Barbie Leopard

This design was inspired by Robin Moses.  She is an incredible artist.  She has been doing nail art for a very long time, but I fell in love with the pink and the leopard print!!  This is my version!!  I used Zoya Barbie, which I would never use by itself, much too girly for me.  The gold is an OPI color (which I will look up later).  Then I used a stamp M() with Konad gold back polish.  Then I used a few sticker rhinestones in assorted places as well.  

Watermelon Cuties

Aren't these just adorable?  Got them for a smoking deal at Sally's a while back.  I cant wait to use them, but waiting til closer to summer, which in AZ is gonna be soon as it heats up quickly here!!  Any ideas?

Happy Birthday Polish!!

This is my Birthday in a bottle polish!!!  Loved it!!  It is another of my Deborah Lippman polishes over Sinful Colors Oasis.  It was amazing to go on and wear!!  The pic just doesn't do it justice!!!

Across the Universe

This was a lot of fun!!  Deborah Lippman (1 of 3 designer polishes I own)  Across the Universe was great on its own, but of course I wanted more!  So the next day I added Sally Hansen Insta Dri Presto Pewter with M63, I think...   Its been a while.

Been Away too Long!!

I have done so many great manicures since Valentines Day post!!!  I am gonna work on catching up one post at a time!!  I plan on dong it more regularly and hopefully more peeps will join in the fun!!!  The possibilities of givaways will happen then!!!  YAY!!!!

My newest Valentines Mani~~

I loved these colors and had to put them together!  Started with Essie Lady Godiva, then Butter knackered over it!!  So pretty alone!  Then I saw a tutorial and had to copy!

Pictures just don't so it justice!!

Then I added a I made a stencil into a heart then I stamped it wit M73, then used my acyrlic red to outline it!    It was fun and turned out better than I thought.  I'm getting better everytime!!

Friday Nails With Reta!!

Friday night was fun! Had Reta over and did a fun water marble job!  Why does it always look better in person!!  One day I will get the photo thing down!!

Wednesday Mani

I was so tired of that pink!  I loved the color, but every nail was a bit much Barbie for me!  I kept singing that Barbie Girl song.  So fantastic, made of plastic; something or other!!

I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri-Blue Streak and Konad White, With Seche Vita top coat of course! On my ring finger I added a few rhinestone stickers.  The base was ready to stamp on in 10 min!!  I was so impressed!  I love stamping!!!

Facebook Groups!

I have recently been pulled into (willingly) 4 nail polish groups on Facebook!!  I am having such a blast!  Learning more of whats out there (hubby will not be happy) and so many ideas that are fantastic!  There is so much more out there than I ever knew of!!  Scary I know!  Hopefully some of theses nail designs that I feel are so out of reach, I can learn to master them and be more confident in my designs!

Animal Days!!

My good friend Crystal came over today for a manicure and she chose 2 colors that went together great!!  Then she picked the giraffe stamp.  Turned out way cute!!

For the bas we used OPI Bling Dyanasty and for the stamped Color is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Coco a-go-go using stamp plate M61.  Then of course Seche Vite Top coat.

Any other animal print lovers out there??  I cant wait to try out some more!!

Funky Valentines Mani!

My new mani!!  I'm not too sure about it yet.  The Zoya polish is wonderful, Its well worth the $8, but if u can get it for less even a better deal!  I LOVE a deal!!!

I started with Zoya's barbie, 2 coats.  Then I stamped with Sinful Colors Oasis, Zoya Tallulah, Ulta Material Girl with stamp M46 big heart and then still didn't like it so I put Pure Ice Spit Fire over the top, the of course Seche Vita Top Coat.  That was on most of the nails, the ring fingers; I did Sinful Colors Snow Me White Stamp M20, then  Zoya Pippa for the middle of the flower, and then Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Crushed on the other hand for the middle of the flower on the other hand.

Nail Mail!!

Got my $6.95 Zoya polishes in da mail today!!  From Left to Right; Tallulah, and Barbie.  These polishes sell for $8 a piece!!  Awesome score!

New Polish Swatch n Review

From my last post, these are what the newest colors look like and what I thought of them.   I will try and not be too long!

Starting from above my left finger isSally Hansen (SH) Diamond Strength Diamonds, SH Insta Dri Blue streak, SH Xtreme Wear Crushed, SH Salon Complete Thinking of Blue, Nicole Brilliant Idea, SH Insta Dri Coco a go go, China Glaze (CG) Fireside Glow, CG Holly Day, CG Mistletoe Me, Zoya Pippa, Revlon Super Nature, Essie Lady Godiva, Revlon Blue Mosiac, SH Salon Complete Navy Baby, SH Diamond Strength Platinum.

I really loved the way ALL the Sally Hansen went on.  Nice and smooth and only used 2 coats and dried well.  The Insta Dri had a faster drying time and possibly could have gotten away with 1 coat.

China Glaze went on fabulous as well, did we even question that?  Did need 2 coats and not try quite as fast, but so pretty and nice to use.

Revlon was nice to use as well, more sheer than the others, could use 3 coats easy.  But the green n the blue sparkles are amazing colors!

Essie is a great brand as well, this is my first bottle.  This went on great and will be so pretty once I add sparkles or stamp it.

The Zoya Yellow is wonderful and goes well with my Revlon Green, cant wait to use those colors together.  My first purchase of this brand.  Love it!!

Whew!!  Lots of work!!!  Have a colorful day!!

More New Colors for a Fraction of the Cost!!!

Thru various other blogs people have been posting all about these great deals they got, well I decided to see for myself!!  They are fabulous.  My new polish hauls!
