Bundle Monster!!

Click for bigger like always. :)

Got my stamps in today and I couldn't resist.

Those dot looking things are supposed to be hearts, but I guess they didn't really turn out that way.  IRL most of them look like hearts, though. :)  Either way I'm ecstatic.

Gray by Gray...

Sally Hansen - Gray by Gray. One coat. :)

On day three I put Silver Lining on top because I just couldn't help myself. :)

I bought this polish because I refuse to pay the price for MAC Blue India and I think this is just as beautiful.  Maybe a little more grey than blue, but awesome none-the-less.  Also, it shows off Silver Lining BEAUTIFULLY.  I have loved every polish I've tried from this new Sally Hansen line.  Even the older ones.

Seriously this is up there with Fairy Teal as my favorite go-to polish.

If you're too busy looking for the gold... might end up missing the silver lining. :)

Sally Hansen - Silver Lining

I found this collection again at a local grocery store for 5.25 plus a dollar off coupon and couldn't resist picking up this polish and another bottle of Hidden Treasure, which I am seriously considering giving away.  Of course I painted my nails (which are PAINFULLY short) days ago, but this polish has lasted surprisingly well.  My picture doesn't do this polish justice, in the sunlight is where it really shines, and in about five different colors.  There is pink and blue and purple microglitter in there with the silver.  Love it! I am definitely planning on using it for a french mani when I get my tips back. :)

I ordered that bundle of plates and when they get here please to be expecting me to post like a madwoman.

Excuse my absence. :)

Sorry I haven't been around these parts lately. :) I started a new job that has me working constant, crazy hours (census, anyone?) and when I'm not working I find myself able to sleep at the drop of a hat.  I've also been having crazy cravings, weird cramps, and curiously sore lady parts...

Of course that could all be related to the little bundle of joy that I'm hosting. :)

Rest assured, though, I will be painting my nails tonight and I can't wait to get back on and look at all the wonderful colors you all have posted about in the meantime.

Happy Polishing. :D

Matted Treasure.

Same mani with Essie Matte Magic on top. It looks like I applied a crackle coat on this. :D

Again. :)


I am wearing another mani right now with the middle nail all funky.  I refuse to cut my other nails! I think I might go buy a set of plastics just for the middle nail. Seeing my in laws for the first time in two years next week so that is how I'm justifying it.

...I never thought I'd be so attached to my nails.

Found Treasure!

Someone said Walgreens and to Walgreens I went.  There was one bottle left at the third Walgreens I went to and I did a little dance of joy in the aisle when I found it!!

Without further ado:

One coat of Sally Hansen - Hidden Treasure over one coat of Sinful Colors - See You Soon.

Yellow and Orange and Green -- Oh My!

I especially love when it goes all green.  Nothing more to add except get this while you can!  I love the flakies!  Can't wait to compare this to Colorama - Shimmer Girl! I'm also curious to see what this will look like with a matte top coat. 

Oh the possibilities!  I am in a ridiculously good mood at the moment so I'm going to go enjoy it.  Quite possibly by forcing the men in my house ohh and ahh over the color changes one last time. :D

Happy Polishing!

Dusty Leopard.

I finally won a contest!! And in the cutest way possible!  Thank you to Diana from Painted Lady Fingers and her ferret Cybele for choosing me as the winner of the Smooth and Polished Giveaway!  I can't wait to try the goods out when they arrive. :D

On to my NOTD.

Wet N Wild - 207, Broken Hearted with konad m57 in OPI - No Spain, No Gain.

The shopping hiatus is officially over! I rushed to the store to pick up No Spain, No Gain yesterday. I did a mani with just No Spain, but I was in a horrible hurry and it looked it.  So today I removed it and started from scratch.  I'd been wanting to use the leopard print for a while and this polish is SO pigmented that it was perfect to stamp with.  So smooth, so opaque.  Honestly the only thing I don't like about it is the pro wide brush, lol. I guess I'm just so used to the size of the China Glaze brushes that anything bigger is hard for me to control.

I will definitely be rocking this mani over the weekend.
