11-30-10 - New Goodies and Today's Mani

I picked up a couple of new goodies today

Sinful Colors - Nail Art paint in Be My Valentine

Milani - Purple Passion. Again my camera makes this look too blue. Its actually a really nice Royal Purple.

For today's mani, I went simple

OPI - Funky Dunkey with Northern Lights top coat.

11-27-10 - Another Mani for Today

So I was bored today and thought I'd do a new mani. I call this my Pantera mani because it was inspired by my cat Pantera who was named in memory of Dimebag Darrell (RIP)

Nubar - Caramello
Nubar - Sunset Matte
Wet N Wild - Black Creme




11-27-10 - Toda's Mani

I love sparkly and today's mani is very sparkly and a bit Christmasy.

Milani - Golden Goddess - I've had several Milani polishes for quite a while and haven't used them much, but I have to say, I've really under estimated them. Since I've started using them recently, I really like them.

Essie - A-List - this is one of my favorite reds.

Finger Paints - Holly Good Time - this polish is sooooo sparkly, I wish the camera could actually show its sparkliness and do this polish justice. Every time I look at my nails I'm mesmerized by the sparkliness.

11-26-10 - More New Goodies

Just picked up a couple more new polishes

OPI - Funky Dunky - I've been wanting this one since the collection came out last Spring but never got around to getting it.

Out the Door - Northern Lights Holo Top Coat (Silver) - so another attempt to find holo glitter. I tried it on just one finger and its another failure. I got absolutely no holo effect. Although it is nice and shiny silver glitter. And since its a top coat I'll save a step whenever I want silver glitter.


11-26-10 - New Goodies

I got a couple of new colors.

Last night I went to Walmart and picked up Pure Ice - Super Star. I have a couple polishes from this brand, one I really like and one I really dislike, so I thought I'd give it one more shot with this one, a dark red micro glitter.

And today, I was at Sally's and saw that Finger Paints has a holiday collection and picked up Holly Good Time. This is a really pretty gold and red glitter. I'm not usually too much into gold or red for that matter but this one really caught my eye. Seeing it made me feel all Christmasy.

11-24-10 - Today's Mani

Okay so for tonight's mani we have

OPI - Black Onyx - My first time using this. Its a good black very opaque and shiny. I like it

Orly - Charged Up - this is one of my favorite purples, although as usual my stupid camera shows it much more blue than it really is. Its a very true purple.

Mia Secret - Black Crackle - I can't get enough of the crackle effect.

All topped off with Out the Door topcoat

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the U.S. My family and I will be stuffing ourselves silly :)

11-21-10 - Another Mani Today

So I just had to try out my new glitter polish

Milani - Bijou Bronze
Milani - Browan A Licious
OPI - Extra - Va -Vaganza - I love this polish, its a unique mixture of colors I haven't had before. A perfect autumny color


11-21-10 - Today's Mani and New Goodies

I did a little marbling last night.

Milani - Golden Goddess
Milani - Bijou Bronze
Milani - Brown-A-Licious
Milani - Good Morning Sunshine

I took a little trip to Ulta today, I had a rewards coupon that was good for a salon polish, so I got OPI - Extra-Va-Vaganza from the Burlesque collection. Yeah I love free nail polish. Funny thing, while I was standing in line, I realized that it matched perfectly with the polishes I have one.

11/16/2010 - Today's Mani

I have a sparkly little mani today

China Glaze - Little Drummer Boy - this is a very pretty navy blue shimmer. I really like this color. It was little watery going on, but overall a good polish.

Nubar - Star Sparkle - mmmhhhh sparkly

11/15/2010 - New Goodies

I got a few new things today

LA Splash - Nail Art Glitter in Onyx. I found this at Walgreens this morning. I haven't heard of it or seen it before. The clerk said they just got it in the other day. Basically you polish your nails and then stick your finger in the container while the polish is still wet. I'm just psyched I finally found some black glitter.

China Glaze - from the Holiday Collection - Little Drummer Boy, a dark blue shimmer

China Glaze - from the Holiday Collection - Phat Santa, a blood red polish.

I'm looking forward trying to all of these new goodies.

11/14/10 - Today's Mani

Well I'm off in a few minutes to the Fountain Hills Art Festival but I wanted to get my new mani up.

OPI - Manicurist of Seville - As I said before I usually don't go for the berry colors but this I really like, and I think its much nicer on than in the bottle.

OPI - Tease-Y Does It -  I really really like this one, its not a purple as it looks in the bottle and happily when its on, it looks nothing like my Nubar Iced Licorice.

11/13/10 -- Today's Mani

So today's mani is my submission for the OPI marbling contest.

OPI - A Grape Fit
OPI - Sapphire In the Snow
OPI - Suzi Skis the Pyrenees - Suede

So I opened the Suzi Skis/Manucrist of Seville package and instead of Suzi Skis the Pyrenees it contained Black Onyx.  Don't know what happened, but its a color I don't have so I guess its all good. 


11-13-10 - Today's Haul

I have have a nice little haul today

OPI - Cuckoo for this Color from the Swiss Collection, this is a pretty blue/green shimmer

OPI - Tease-Y Does It  from the new Burlesque Collection.  I've been looking forward to this color since I first saw the promos for the collection.  Is a purple with gold shimmer.  Unfortunately when I got home with it, I seems to look very similar to my new Nubar Iced Licorice.   Hopefully once on it will be something totally different.

OPI - Suzi Skis the Pyrenees - I actually already have this color, but its almost empty so I thought this would be a good time to replace

OPI - Mancurist of Seville - I don't normally go for the berry colors, but I've been wanting this color for a long time but never got around to getting it.

OPI - Jade is the New Black from the Hong Kong collection.   I nice muted green.  I'm really starting to get more in green lately

China Glaze - Party Hearty -  This is so Christmasy I love it. 

So for all you marbling fans,  OPI is having a water marbling contest on their Facebook book page.  The deadline for submissions is Nov. 19.  Just post your pic on their wall and identify the colors you used.  They will be picking 10 winners who will receive an OPI T-Shirt.

11-11-10 - Today's Mani

So we have a new mani for today. 

Essie - Pretty Edgy - I really like the shade of this green.  Its very nice and springy, just perfect for an autumn day :)  - It goes on nicely although its a little watery, but not too bad.  Overall a very nice polish. 

L.A. Colors - Black Velvet - This is the first time I've used this brand, and I like it.   Its a good black that goes on very opaque and shiny in just one coat.

The skulls are Kiss Halloween nail art stickers

And as usual I've used Out The Door top coat.

OPI - Do You Lilac It

Revlon - Silver Switch

11/4/10 - Todays Mani

For today we have

Essie - Shift of Power - may favorite metallic gold.

OPI - Sparkle-icious - This is from the Burlesque collection.  I really like it, it seems a little similar to Mad As A Hatter, but I like this one alot better. 



11/4/10 - New Goodies

Another goody arrived in the mail today.   I just love it when I open my mailbox and there is nail polish waiting for me :)

OPI - Sparkle-icious from the Burlesque Collection.  This is a really cool multi color glitter that I cannot wait to try out.  But I'm going to have to wait until tomorrow to use it.

11/3/10 - Today's Mani

Today's mani is actually swatches of my 3 new Nubars

Nubar - Indigo Illusion -  I really like this polish, the duo effect is great

Nubar - Star Sparkles - I'm really disappointed with this polish.  The Nubar website said this was a holo glitter and the picture they have of it has a great holo effect.   I got absolutely no holo effect from it.  It seems to be just a silver glitter and I have way too many silver glitters.

Nubar - Iced Licorice -  I really like this one two.  I love the shade of purple and the gold shimmer is awesome.
