  • February Nail Art Challenge - 20

    Welcome to Thursday! I hope you are well and that your life is full of great things. :) Today is another post of nail art for the February Nail Art Challenge with the theme: Floral. Now, much like the girly, Valentine manis I'm not much of a flowery girl either but I branched out once again and ended up using a stamping image I most likely never would have if not for the theme. And I like!

    I started with two coats of the Orly purple. I love this color with all its fabulous flakies mixed throughout. They catch the light and bling in the best way. Orly really is a great polish; I only have about 5 of their polishes but all of them apply like a dream and are unique. 

    I hope you have a great day... Tomorrow is Friday, after all. :)

  • February Nail Art Challenge - 11

    Hello! I hope your week is off to a good start! Today is another day of the February Nail Art Challenge and the theme: Pastel. It's a little early in Colorado to break out the pastels...the walkway to my place is a solid sheet of ice and we haven't seen the sun in two days (which is a long time for us). Although, now that I think of it...I guess in a way the pastels came at just the right time to brighten things up. :)

    I started with two coats of a pink I never expected to like but I LOVE it! It's just right and I actually look forward to wearing it more. I taped off sections and then just added the two Zoya colors to accent the pink. In the end I thought it would look super soft matte so added the matte top coat. I really, really like this mani.

    Thank you for stopping by today! I hope wherever you are that it's bright and full of joy for you! See you again soon!

  • Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas!! I can't believe how quickly each year passes. I'm not sure what you have going on today but I'll be fairly busy. Christmas can be an interesting day for many people and often times mine has been that way but I'm looking forward to this year. It will be fun to have this matte mani for my festivities though!

    I'm so pleased with this being matte! It softens the whole look and actually I think it sharpens the image I stamped. 

    I hope you have an amazing Christmas whatever the day brings you. Whether your day is a packed schedule or you get to relax; whether you're with lots of people or get to have down time on your own, I hope your day is blessed and just what you need. Merry Christmas!!

  • Rich Glitz

    Hey there! I hope you had a wonderful Thankgiving yesterday! I walked to my mom's house and met family and friends there for a great time and fabulous meal. I started this mani yesterday, as a matter of fact, but didn't have time to finish so today I faded in the glitz. :) 

    I absolutely LOVE Sleeping Palace from A England! I don't think I could ask for a better formula. I love it when a formula allows me to take my time to control the direction of the paint and it still applies effortlessly. I must say though that all A England polishes I have are the same dreamy formula. Sleeping Palace is a rich, deep chocolate plumb shade, though the plumb hughes are lost when I photograph it. I love it though because it's so versatile. I used a champaign colored glitter from Orly to fade with. I hope you like the combo as much as I do.

    I hope you have a great day!
