Caviar and glitter

Hey guys. Well last night I was a little adventurous and did two textures nails. One was my teal caviar beads that I did on tips of In the cab-ana by essie. And my thumb was big round holo looking glitter that I purchased on Usually you would place these individually on your nail but I thought what the hell. Lets dump it on top and see what I get. As much as I like it I can tell that I have a lot under each other. Next time I want to try and fish scale them onto my nails. 

I'm drawing blanks for my future manicures. Any ideas what I should do next or in the future?

This is another one of my new China Glaze summer colors. The name of this one is called Shell-o. Its a very bright coral jelly finish polish that is ultra sheer. This picture took 4 basecoats for a none see through finish.

The polka-dots I did afterwards were a familiar color to my blog, Sun of a peach. I've been wanting to play around with my new colors and I thought that this one would be the pop out color to use! The thumb was bottoms up.

Essie summer collection 2013

I dont have all six but I do have five! The only one that I didnt buy was Naughty Nautical because I found that I had too many teal colors. 

So I'd like to just round up the explanations of this line quickly. Love the creamy colors. They all go on very well with just two coats. Fun and simple colors for the summer, there are a few colors ( the green ) that I would use as accent colors... I havent been out to buy colors in a while so this was my other part of my big essie buy!!

Bottoms Up! and Sun of a Peach!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a lovely long weekend! I know I am. Last night my boyfriend and I and his sister and brother-in-law all went out to celebrate our anniversaries. ( My boyfriend and i were celebrating 6 years together and his sister and husband 3 years married) We went out for sushi at our favorite place and then went for ice cream! The night was a little cold but who cares right? Its ice cream!

Then today my lovely man brought me out to see Star Trek 2! Was awesome. I had such a good time.. It got me in the mood to watch the older ones.

Anyhow I spent some time doing my nails and practicing my leopard print. Now if you have a hard time with this pattern or are not familiar with it, I found this video by Chalkboard Nails very helpful.

I paired my leopard print nails with some zebra patterns as well and i chose my new China Glaze summer collection colors Bottoms Up! and Sun of a Peach! Even though I bought the whole line I don't really care what people say about this line. Other then the jellies being a tad too thin the creams are amazing! Plus I love how bright they all are!

Anyway I would very much appreciate you letting me know what you think and if you are a new timer to my blog and like what you see I would love for you to follow me! I appreciate everything that you guys do!

Come here with my first time hand done leopard print

I've attempted to try and do my own leopard print nails... let me know what you think!!!!

Essie's Resort 2013 Collection

Good day ladies! I have for you today Essie's 2013 Resort collection that I picked up at Belmonda. This collection consists of 4 polishes. What i love about all of these is that they go on super well even with one coat. But I always do two. 
Under Where? is a very light pink lilac purple creme color which I found a little thinner then the rest of the polishes in this line. That would probably be my only downside to this color. I love purple polish and in the summer this will look fabulous on my toes!  
In the Cab-ana is a nice bright blue. I have a few of these in my collection which i will compare to in the future. again its a lovely creme easy to apply but hard to take a photo of! I didn't have luck with with the sun today, it was super cloudy and cold!!!

Come here is a orange/red creme color and I think this is my favorite of the bunch.  This formula was amazing to apply. A really nice creme color and super silky when putting it on. 

Last but not least we have First Timer which is a minty green creme. Depending on the light it looks a little more green. I don't have too many mint greens just because they don't do much for my skin but this one was just beautiful. I found this one easy to apply, it wasn't streaky or anything. I'm really impressed with this line. 

All in all this is a nice little collection for the summer. If you are thinking gifts this would make any nail polish lover happy. 
Have a nice evening everyone!

Color Club Halo Hues 2013 swatches!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there today!!! I had the pleasure of making an awesome breakfast for my mother, father and boyfriend today. I love making my mom happy, so having small breakfasts from time to time are great. 
She also brought over something that I had ordered this week... I bought 3 of the 6 halo hues from the 2013 color club line. Eternal beauty, Beyond and Miss bliss. These are I'd like to tell you my FIRST holographic nail polishes I have ever had. I am just sooooo happy with them! I've had my eyes on holo's for a while and these seemed very reasonable. 
I will start off with Eternal Beauty which is a gorgeous holographic purple. The coverage of these polishes is just amazing! 2 coats and it's completely covered.  I don't want to be someone who just loves every polish I get but WOW the sparkle in this polish was amazing! I wore this color for a whole week and the only problem that I had with it was a small wearing down of the tips. Not one chip. Being a hairdresser all I can say is AMAZING! 
This pretty pink one is called Miss Bliss.

 And last but not least I have Beyond. This one I found a little hard to photograph the sparkle but I do assure you that the shine was there!

More Stripes!

What can I say I love stripes!! This time I have custom kicks from china glaze for my base and I have to say when I removed this color my whole nail and skin stayed blue/green. Was super disappointing and a hassle to get off.
But anyway the look was nice!
I used my trusty orly nail art in gold and black, a super easy pattern and a cute look is achieved!
