11-30-11 - OPI Ogre the Top Blue What's With the Catitude and Alpine Snow

So tomorrow is the 1st of December, its holiday time. I'm trying to decide if I should do the 12 Days of Christmas Manis like I did last year, or just do holiday themed manis for the entire month. I can't decide, but in the meantime, I have a fun mani for today

OPI - Alpine Snow - This is a white creme. It has good application and great coverage for a white polish. Smooth and opaque in two coats

OPI - What's with the Catitude - This is a light blue creme - This also had really good coverage and application.

OPI - Ogre the Top Blue - This is a medium blue creme - This is a great shade of blue with good coverage and application.

11-28-11 - OPI Grape...Set...Match

Its hard getting back to work after having four days off, so I just had to do a new mani.

OPI - Grape...Set...Match - This is a grapey polish with blue and purple micro glitter. The application and coverage on this one were very nice.l

I then topped it with OPI Blue Shatter - I'm not sure if I didn't wait long enough for the polish to dry or if I applied it too thick but I didn't get as good as a crackle effect on this one as I get with the colors from the Shatter collection. The color one this one is a great electric blue.

11-27-11 - Nubar Avant-Garde

The long weekend is coming to an end and I've been busy doing nail stuff. :)

I went with Nubar for this one, because at the risk of repeating myself, yeah I know I am, I love Nubar polish its my favorite of all of my polishes. Anyway to get to down to it,

Nubar - Avant-Garde - This is a burgundy shimmer matte polish. This is has really great coverage and application, although for this particular mani I used a top coat.

Nubar - 2010 - This is flaky topcoat. I love how this looks over the Avant-Garde giving a very autumny look.

All topped with Seche Vite

I have a simple, nothing fancy mani for today.

Orly - Rock It - This is a ruby red polish from the Mineral FX Collection. The application was very nice and smooth. Good coverage. I used three coats here. The color of this polish is a very pretty deep red. The sparkle and shimmer is awesome which the pics don't do justice.

11-17-11 - Nubar Vaso & Hyacinth Sparkles

Its getting late and I'm getting tried so I'll get right to it.

Nubar - Vaso - this is a lavender shimmer with unique textured finish. Its not quite shiny and not quite matte. Very pretty from their Venetian Glass collection

Nubar - Hyacinth Sparkles - This is a lavender glitter polish. Very good application and coverage. I added it to the tips here for a little subtle sparkle

I know I've said it before, but I love Nubar its my favorite brand. I just wish it was more easily available.

Since the last time I posted I did a couple of total fail manis, so I'm glad to have a fairly decent for today. I'm still working on perfecting my stamping, but its coming along.

So today I was feeling a bit piraty and went with a couple of colors from OPI's POTC collection.

Skull & Glossbones - This is a light taupe creme. Nice coverage and application. It is a two coat polish.

Mermaid's Tear - This is a seafoam creme. I really love this color, its one of my favorites.

Its Wednesday and its time for pink.

Finger Paints - Give Pink A Chance - This is a very dark pink creme, which looks kind of red in some light. It has great coverage and application.

11-7-11 - Today's Mani

After several days of one headache after another, I finally feel up to doing a mani and it turns out crappy. Oh well.

Sinful Colors - Pull Over - This is a medium yellow creme. Good application and good coverage in three coats.

OPI - Navy Shatter - This along with the Pink are probably my favorites from the Shatter collection

Mia Secret - Dark Green Crackle - This is a total disappointment. Its thin and watery and no where near the dark green color it looks in the bottle. I've had the Mia Secret Black and White crackles and they were great. But this one is a huge disappointment.
