The search for the ever Elusive Whimsical!

So this weekend, I had a mission! To find the ever elusive Whimsical! I was also trying to find Sinfuls Green Ocean, but that didn't happen!

First off, Whimsical only seems to be available at Rite-Aid, seeing as I went to two Walgreens and Wal-Mart, but they didn't even have a spot for them! I went to Rite-Aid, and there was a spot for it.. however it was empty!
It was like that.. at the next four stores! Until I finally found it in the the 5th store!Crazy stuff really! And my husband went along with me on this trek, in fact he was the one who kept encouraging me to look at more stores! If it as up to me, I would have given up after the 2nd store!

Anyways,, onto the mani!

I used three Coats of Sinfuls Cinderella under about 3 coats of Whimsical.. This polish is sheer! And the glitter doesn't want to come out! But I got it on there and I was pretty pleased with the result! I added a coat of SV for these pictures..

Annnddddd then I decided that I wanted to see what it looked like Matte..
I think I almost like it better! :D

I hope you all had a good weekend!! :D

A Blue Friday...with a Twist

Hello all!!

I hope you had a great week, and have a great weekend planned! I know I am going out to see if I can find Sinful's Green Ocean, and Revlon's Whimsical.. I can't seem to find them to save my life!!

Anyways.. onto the mani.. So I know today is supposed  to be Blue Friday.. and I had a mani all picked out, and the pictures are all ready to upload.. However Yesterday.. I received a bottle of FingerPaints Twisted!!

And I just HAD to show you that.. and there is some blue in it.. Right? Go with me here..

So, here is one coat of Sinful Black on Black, two coats of Twisted, one coat of Zoya's Maisie on my accent nail.. and then one coat of SV over the top of everything!

So pretty!! It's like a rainbow exploded on my nails!! And wish me luck on my hunt for the elusive Whimsical!!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Cake Batter Nails!

Good Morning All!

So today I have a post of what my nails looked like over the weekend! So I love Jelly Finish Polishes, I am pretty sure they are my favorite type of polish right now, though I don't have many. I would like Holo's, but we hardly ever get sun around here! So Jellies it is! :D

Here is a Jelly sandwich that I created. Basically I wanted it to look like Funfetti Cake Batter..

I used two Coats of Essie Marshmallow, and then put a layer of Ulta's Pinata-Yada-Yada, and then two more coats of Marshmallow and topped the whole thing off with a coat of SV I think it looks okay. Not exactly what I was going for.. but it was close.

So what do you all think? What are YOUR favorite Jelly Polishes? Any suggestions for me?

Thanks and Have a Great Day!

My Sister's Nails!

Hello all! I hope you all had a super great weekend! I did! My sister flew up to visit me, and of course.. I had to do her nails! This is one of the three mani's that I gave her. I am super sad that I didn't get a picture of the last one! It was beautiful! We even went to Ulta!! I was super excited about that, but.. they were sold out of Whimsical.. like every other store in my town! One day Whimsical.. I will get my hands on you!

Anyways.. back to the mani! I got to pick the colors for this one, and she got to pick the stamp!

This is Essie's Midnight Cami, with Shine of the Times over it. I swear that polish is Magical!
After that dried, and I used a Coat Of Seche Vite, I use Konad special polish in white and my M.A.S.H plates, and stamped them for her! :D

I seriously wish my stamps would turn out as good as hers did!

I hope you have a great day! :D

Blue Friday... Matte!

Happy Friday All!

I have a Blue Friday Mani for you all today. And, since I just got a Matte Top Coat.. I thought.. Hey! Let's make my Blue Friday Mani.. Matte!!

For this Mani, I used a a nail polish that I Frankened, and I call it Sea Pearl. It's such a pretty Shimmery blue! I used two coats of my Sea Pearl, and then added two coats of Nina's Ultra Pro in Opal. You can get Nina's at Sally Beauty Supply.

After that dried, I added one coat of Hard Candy's Matte-ly in Love. and Voila! My mani was born!

I intentionally blurred this pic and the next, so you could see how pretty the sparkles are!

Well, I hope you like it!! And I hope you all have an awesome weekend!

My Valentines day Mani! :D

Well First off, Happy Valentines Day everyone!! :D I hope you all have an amazing day with either that special someone, or someone that you love! My husband was super sweet and he let me take the day off of work! Now I don't have to deal with angry customers!! YAY!! :D (I work in customer's a pain!)

Anyways.. onto the nails! :D So, there aren't hearts or anything.. But I like how it turned out.. My nails remind me of cupcakes at the moment! hehe :D

So I started with a layer of China Glaze's Ruby Pumps, and then added a layer of Wet N Wild's Hannak Pinktana and Pure Ice's. Oh Baby! After that, I added another layer of Ruby Pumps and Oh Baby!!

You can kinda see the blue shimmer that is flashing across my thumb in the first picture.. I love this layering effect! It's super sparkly, and super deep!

And then for the "clouds" I used Sinful's Snow Me White and Sally Hansen in Lilac! :D

I hope you all have a great day!! And Don't forget to Like My facebook page as well as leave me a little comment or two! Just so I know that people are reading!!

Happy V-Day All!! :D

Happy Monday all!! I hope you all had a great weekend? I had a pretty amazing weekend.. on Saturday I spent the whole afternoon Frankening polishes! It was super fun, and I have some swatches for you.. 

First up is : Teal, the color of Gangrene (Weird name I know.. but if you have ever seen "The Wedding Planner, you will get it)

Next up is: Sea Pearl! This is definitely my favorite, and I was most proud of this one!

And last but not least we have : Smoke on the Water! This is such a pretty color as well! :D

I wish I could tell you the recipes for these things, but I just sort of dumped a little of this, and a little of that in there! Talk to you later!

Blue Friday!!

Hey all!!! It's Blue Friday!! I am so excited about this mani! I LOVE jelly's and I LOVE the color blue.. so what did I do? I made a jelly sandwich!!

I used Revlon's Royal, and in between the layers, China Glaze's Fairy Dust! It looks super pretty in the light, but I don't think I was quite able to catch it on Camera. Anyways, here is the mani!

Pardon the lack of clean-up on my thumb...

Oh, I updated my wish list, and don't forget to like my facebook page, there is a link in the top right hand corner.  And there will be a contest once I reach 50 followers! So.. Be sure to Share Share Share!!! :D
Have an awesome day!

A little bit of everything.

So for this mani.. I had an image in my head.. I wanted to do a half moon mani over some glitter..
And somehow, it didn't quite turn out how I pictured it in my head.. But nothing ever really does!

I used one Coat of Sally Hansen's Gem Crush in Lady Luck, and to be honest, I wasn't too fond of it. I don't think I like such chunky glitters. It just looked like it was a mess on my nails.. and a top coat eater as well! I don't have Gelous yet.. so..
After applying two coats of top coat, I taped off my nails, and added Sinful's What's your name. It's a black that has blue shimmer in it, that is actually really hard to see!
And after I did that... I decided it needed something, so I did a little cloud action, with China Glaze's Ruby Pumps. 

What do you all think??

Oh and a question, Anyone know of some good jelly polishes? I have Revlon Royal, but I would like a few more! Any suggestions? Anything but OPI, I can't really get my hands on those!

Also, I am thinking of doing a giveaway soon, once I have a few more followers.. Any suggestions for what you would like to see?

Have a great day!

Tiny little haul!

So this weekend, I got my first two Nubar polishes!! I got Reclaim, which is an amazing Holo Green. (Which I actually wore all Saturday, because we had *gasp* Sun!! Sun is a rare thing around here. To quote Sleepless is Seattle. "It rains 9 months out of the year in Seattle.") I didn't get a good picture of it though.. seeing as I had to be outside to get the holo effect!

And the other polish I got is Greener. It's a super pretty deep green shimmer!
Did any of you get any cool polishes this weekend?

a Follow up :D

So, if you couldn't guess from my previous post, I was rooting for the Patriots. But they lost :( Oh well, at least my nails looks good!
I used China Glaze's Icicle, for the base and then just took tape and taped off different sections of my nail, and I used Sally Hansen's Xtreme nail polish in Red Carpet and Blue-it.

I personally think my thumb turned out the best!! :D It was my first time trying this pattern! The next one should be better now that I know what to expect!

I hope you all have a great Monday!! :D
