    Hello, hello! Happy Saturday to you! How are you today? I'm very well after sleeping in and a relaxing morning. I'm also happy because of this amazing limited edition Picture Polish shade I bought this week. It's a brilliant berry scatter holo that leans toward the orange side of red. There are several shades in this limited edition collection but this one caught my eye and I'm glad it did!

    As usual...I had to add a bit of art. I decided to use an A England holo to stamp with and the combo is so wonderful! Nemesis has the flawless formula we're accustomed to from Picture Polish and I used three light coats for complete opacity. 

    I hope you like it and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the day!

  • Winter Blues

    Hello there! How are you today? It has been a very crazy week at work. I painted this manicure a couple days ago but just haven't had the time to post it. I used two blues, silver and black for this stamped and dotted design.

    This was kind of an unplanned design. I just received new Pueen stamping plates this week so I was trying them out and this happened! I hope you have a great Sunday night and a good start to the week tomorrow.

  • Auntie Ems

    Happy weekend everyone!! I've been absent for a bit...sorry about that. I've had a super busy couple of weeks and this week has been full of excitement because I'm officially an aunt! My brother and sister-in-law brought an incredible baby boy into the world yesterday! I have never been a baby person but oh-my-goodness am I head over heels! His name is Abdiel. It means "Servant of God" in Hebrew. So, I know this isn't a nails pic, but here I am holding Abdiel, a blessing to our family. 

    So, night before last, as I was hoping and waiting for news of Abdiel's arrival, I did the best thing I could think of...painted my nails, of course! So here's a special mani for an incredibly special occasion.

    Well, there you have it! I hope you like this as much as I do! Even though the base color is called Midsummer Night, it really looks festive with the rose gold stamped design and glitter! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I'm hoping to spend more time with my sweet nephew.

  • Dirty Diana

    Hello there. I hope you're well today. I recently ordered another beautiful holo polish from Colors by Llarowe. I used it for the manicure in my last post but I couldn't get enough of it so I had to use it again.

    It's an amazing shade that reminds me of a favorite color by Llarowe called Unorthodox Annie though this one is lighter and more raspberry. I have a comparison photo below. (Left to right: Unorthodox Annie, Dirty Diana)

    Here's the beautiful Dirty Diana. It's so beautiful and has awesome holo affects. 

    I added a stamped design in a complimenting holo from the one and only A England. I know I'm partial but I really love the result! 

    I hope you have a great day! See you soon...

  • Final Fantasy

    Hi there! How are you today? Have you had a good week? Mine has been pretty good...some long days at work but I'm making good progress on a couple big projects so that feels good. It's of course one of the best times of the day though, when I can paint my nails! I have an incredible holo polish to show you today from Collors by Llarowe. It's part of the Summer 2014 collection and it caught my eye the moment I saw it. Here is Final Fantasy.

    I wore Final Fantasy by itself for a day and kept staring at it every chance I got! Its gunmetal gray based holo shifts to pale pink and pale green. I've never seen anything like it. I added a black stamped image over it and I love how it turned out. (It's actually one of my boyfriend's favorites.😊)

    I highly recommend polish from Colors by Llarowe. They have amazing formulas and super creative colors. You can find them on the Llarowe site

    I hope you have a wonderful evening and a great Friday tomorrow! Yay!!

  • Double Stamped Vanilla Sky

    Mornin' sunshine! Well, there's not actually sun this morning in Colorado Springs, but it's still a beautiful day so far. I hope your week is off to a good start! 

    I have a mani to show you today that I stamped twice for. I really love the depth it gave.

    I started with a pale yellow that has slight shimmer to it. This color from Lacquer Lust, called Vanilla Sky, actually dries matte on its own but I ended up clear coating it for my stamping. 

    I only have three bottles of Laquer Lust but all three apply like a dream and are such amazing colors. I encourage you to check them out if you haven't already.

    I hope you have a great Tuesday!

  • Monkey See, Monkey Do

    Hey there! I've been quite the polisher these last few days...probably because three orders arrived in the last week or so and I just had to try all the polishes as soon as possible. :) Here is an electric blue from Llarowe called Monkey See, Monkey Do. I thought it would be a bit more of an icy blue when I ordered it but no complaints; it's beautiful!

    Monkey See, Monkey Do is an amazing holo polish but also has more dimension from super fine holo glitters. It's definitely unlike any holo I own and I'm super excited it caught my eye online to purchase. I essentially used two coats but for some reason it was balding near my cuticles a bit on a few nails so I was able to add a light third coat where necessary and everything evened out perfectly with my trusty top coat. I used a Pueen stamping plate for the art, one that has an infinity design so each nail is a little different. 

    I hope you're still having a great weekend and I'm so glad you stopped by today. See you soon!

  • Panacea

    Happy Sunday! I love sleeping in on the weekends, the birds chirping outside and the sun light brightening my bedroom to gently wake me up...sigh... :) I hope you're weekend has been relaxing too. I have another Cirque color to show you today. It's called Panacea and it a beautiful bright green holo. This is definitely not a color I'm normally drawn to but when purchasing the Heritage collection, I decided to include it to stretch my norm a bit.


    I started with two easy coats of Panacea and then chose a silver chrome polish to stamp a simple image over it. I wanted the base to show through the majority of the image. I can't say enough how much I love Cirque polishes!

    Thank you for swinging by today!

  • More Heritage

    Happy weekend! How are you? I have another gorgeous polish from Cirque's new Heritage collection  called Cerrillos. I think it's my favorite of the collection or else a tie with Sky Woman. Here's Cerrillos.

    I started with two coats of Cerrillos, used an A England favorite to stamp and then dotted another Cirque Heritage polish over the top for an eye catching edge. I hope you like it and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

  • Enchanted March & April

    Hey there! How are you today? I have two new polishes to show you so get ready for lots of pics! These Enchanted Polishes are difficult to come by so these two are only my second and third bottles. This whole calendar year they're releasing a mystery bottle each month that you can pre-order in only a 30 minute timeframe. They released March and April the same day and they just arrived. Let's take a look!

    I wasn't surprised to see that March 2014 turned out to be green but I was surprised at how much I love it! I'm rarely drawn to green but almost anything that's a holo polish will win me over and this one certainly did. I used two coats then stamped a fun new Pueen image over it for kicks. I can't describe how beautiful this shade is. It complete dazzles!

    While March 2014's mystery color didn't surprise me, April 2014 did. It's a pleasant surprise to be sure. This is a muted periwinkle cream with just the right amount of holo magic in it. It applies thicker in formula than March 2014 because of its cream base but still a lovely two-coater and just fantastic! I also stamped a new Pueen image over it. Wonderful!

    I hope you like these two manis. I of course plan on ordering all of the 2014 mystery polishes (though I'm super disappointed because I missed January😞) so stay tuned for more enchantment!

    I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
