China Glaze Hyper Haute

Happy Friday!!! I'm so glad it's the weekend! How about you? Although, we have snow....AGAIN! Ah, well. ;-)

My Sally's finally got Tronica in! I was so happy to get them! :-) I got seven of them, and the first one I have on is Hyper Haute. HH is a med. toned raspberry holographic. I know some are not loving these because they are not as holo as previous CG collections. I however, am loving them! I wasn't able to get many of the past holo's so these are great to me. :-)

Application on Hyper Haute was amazing. So smooth. I used two coats, but could have easily gotten away with only one.

Are you excited about the Tronica collection? Which ones do you want to get?

$OPI Traffic Stopper Copper and Essie Mochachino

Hey guys! Today I have on one of the new Essie polishes, Mochachino. It is supposed to be in Walmart,Walgrens and CVS. I went to so many of these stores trying to hunt it down, and could never find it. I found empty slots for it at one store only. I finally ended up ordering it online from WM. It's not my usual color, but I LOVE it. Mochachino is a creamy light brown base with heavy silver shimmer. Application was wonderful and I used two coats.

I have had this mani on for four days, which is really long for me. LOL! I'm really loving this color. Last night, I was in Sephora and I picked up the newest chunky glitter. This one is copper and it's called Traffic Stopper Copper. I have been wanting a copper glitter just like this. TSC is full of small copper glitter and copper hex glitter. I put it over Essie Mochachino.

First up here's a pic. of the two together.

Here is Essie Mochachino.

A couple more pics. of both together.

Thanks for looking! :-)

Cult Nails Iconic plus a crazy layering experiment....Tons of pics!

Good morning! Wow, it's been a week since I last posted. I'm not sure how that happened! LOL! I kept doing my nails last week, and taking pics. but never got them posted here, so I have about a week's worth of blogging to catch up on.

The first one I'm going to show you is another polish by Cult Nails called Iconic. This is the second CN polish I've used, and I LOVE it! Iconic is a deep red with flakies! Application was wonderful and I used two coats.

I'm not sure what was wrong with me the day I decided to wear this, but I ended up doing lots of different layers, and came up with some crazy combos. The first couple are mild. LOL!

I topped Iconic off with Colorama Shimmer Girl, which is one awesome flakie.

Then I decided to matte it using Essie Matte About You.

Here's where it starts to get a bit crazy. For some reason I decided to add Black Shatter to it all. Wasn't very thrilled with it.

Since I wasn't too crazy about it, I decided to add yet another coat of the Colorama Shimmer Girl polish.

Close up's

And then finally, I added yet one more coat of Essie Matte About You to finish my crazy mani. off!

If you made it all the way through this, I think you deserve a cupcake! Ha, Ha! ;-)

Thanks for looking, and I hope you all have a wonderful Mon!

Happy Valentine's Day!! Here are a couple of V-Day Manis.

♥♥HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!♥♥ I know some people really don't like this day, but I think everyone should remember, that it's not just about having a significant other, but about who you love in general. Friends,family,pets and even yourself. :-) Are you gagging yet?! LOL! J/K

Do you/did you have plans for today? My husband and I decided to go out for dinner yesterday. Neither of us wanted to wait in a long line to get in anywhere tonight. So, we decided to have Valentine's dinner last night at our fav. Italian restaurant. We are having cupcakes and champagne tonight, and staying in with our pets. :-) Our basketball team (KU) is playing tonight, so we will watch that. Hubby surprised me with nail polish for my Valentine's Day gift! I was really surprised....I got all kinds of good stuff. PA polish,Cult Nails and lots of Klean Color polish that I have wanted for a long time. I will post pics. of them soon.

I did a couple of V-Day manis. One yesterday, and one today. The first one I used Essie Marshmallow,heart stickers and NYX Girls heart polish.

Here is Essie Marshmallow by itself. I'm really surprised by how much I like this polish. It's a jelly, and it truly reminds me of the marshmallow topping you can get on ice cream. I used three coats. Application was a bit streaky, but worked out okay after adding the third coat.

For today's mani. I use Zoya Erika,heart and bow stickers and China Glaze Pom Pom.

Zoya Erika with CG Pom Pom on accent finger.

Zoya Erika, is a pale pink with gold shimmer. I used two coats and application was great.

My Morris cat says Happy Valentine's Day!! :-)

I hope that whatever you did today/tonight it was a good time. :-)

Love & Beauty Current....Flakie goodness!

Good morning! It's Friday!!! Yay! :-) Today, I have on another one of the Love and Beauty polishes that I picked up at Forever 21. This one is called Current, and it's the exact same polish as LA Girls Addict from the Rock Star collection. I'm so glad I was able to find this, as Addict has been one of my biggest lemmings. Current/Addict is a beautiful deep red/burgundy jelly with red and gold flakes. Application was great and I used two coats. I love this polish so much! :-)

I seriously suggest clicking on these so you can see the awesomeness of this poish....just sayin. ;-)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Anyone have any big plans?
