Holiday Mash Up Nails

Hey dolls! I finally got around to doing my nails again and tried out a couple new products.

I used this gorgeous glittery pink Snowman polish in Strawberry. It does actually have a sweet strawberry scent that lingers. It reminds me to strawberry Pop Rocks. The ice cream cone bottle is really cute too.

For my accent nail I used Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Black Creme mixed with clear polish to sheer it out, with a pink skull glitter from the blue and pink skull nail deco Pumpkin Polish.

I was so excited to try these out. I broke two nails not long before Halloween and by the time everything healed and grew out Halloween was over. I got the Snowman polish before Christmas and even posted about it on Instagram:

But pink isn't a super Christmas-y color and I ended up pulling out my favorite reds and greens instead. I gave the other 3 bottles to my cousin who I always post about here and her two sisters and I'm wondering what those scents are like.

You can also spy on my ring finger a silver metallic Shimmer tattoo. It was my first time trying that out too and I liked it except it peeled off fast thanks to a lot of hand washing.

This pink is really perfect for Valentine's Day. So we got Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's Day here. Three holidays in one set of nails? I'm calling it a holiday mash-up.

#GoRed Nails For #NationalWearRedDay

Since Friday was National Wear Red Day, I posted this up on Instagram to show support and raise awareness for heart disease in women.

I used Wet N' Wild Mega Last - I Red A Good Book along with hole reinforcement stickers.

You can also check out one of my newest beauty favorites, L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Pin Up. I didn't buy it just for the name but I do love it!

Christmas Skittles

Hey dolls! I spent most of November with plain nails while they grew out and they're finally at a point where I feel like doing nail art again. Of course with Christmas so close, now I don't really have time for it.

I decided to do Christmas themed skittles. I like skittles. I pick a color or design, then do one nail on each hand with it, and before I know it, everything's painted.

I used some perfect Christmas polishes for this. My favorite, Salon Perfect - He's With Me for the red, Snowman Polish in Green and Red & Green glitter, Sinful Colors - Snow Me White, and Salon Perfect - Glow Pink as a base under my glitter.

Have you guys done any Christmas nail art so far?

Candy Apple Nails

Hey guys, I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!

Today's nails are a treat I had in the vault from before my break. Here's some Fall appropriate nails that were unplanned and totally a spur of the moment design.

I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Cinna-Snap and then picked up one of my Fall favorites, Sally Hansen - Pumpkin Spice and painted on some drips.

I didn't realize it until I was done, but these nails remind me to another Fall favorite: candy apples. Pumpkin spice and candy apples sound real good right about now, don't you think?

#TBT - Fall Inspired Gradient

Here's a lil something new here: a #ThrowbackThursday post.

I did these nails on October 7, 2013. At least that's what the date says on the picture file.

I think at the time I was using Pink Armor as a base coat. Then I used Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Sunny Side Up for the orange and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Pumpkin Spice over that.

Posting a right hand pic just so you can see Pumpkin Spice in the shade. It's gorgeous and I keep reaching for it every Fall.

I haven't done much nail art at all since I broke two nails last month. Hopefully by Thanksgiving they'll grow out enough that I can enjoy doing it again. Till next time.

Happy Halloween 2014

Happy Halloween guys!

Today I've got some Halloween inspired nails. They're not super Halloween themed like the ones I did last year but more like regular nails with a spooky twist.

Here's my right hand, that hasn't been seen much on the blog lately.

I used Hot Topic - Matte Black and Wet N' Wild Fergie - No Place Like Home on the black & glitter nails, Wet N' Wild Mega Last - I Red A Good Book and a Kiss nail art striper in black on the plaid nails, the same matte black and KleanColor - Americano on the stud nails, and matte black for my black cats along with Sinful Colors - Snow Me White and a glow in the dark Pumpkin Polish in yellow for the eyes.

If some of these nails look familiar to you, it's because I redid the plaid design that I did here for Day 26: Inspired By A Pattern during the 31 Day Challenge. I wore the leggings that I used for my inspiration. Want to see how the outfit turned out?

You can probably spy my new iPhone. Yup, after being SO excited that I did Apple nails on September 9th when it was announced, I finally got one. These are some of the first pictures that I took with it and so far I'm really loving the camera.

These are the only Halloween nails that I'm doing this year. I ended up breaking two nails trying to open a box. I'm kind of bummed because I wanted to enter a gross nails contest for Halloween but after having actual bloody nails and having to cut them all down, I'm cool with it, haha.

Hope you all have an awesome Halloween!

Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hey guys! It's been awhile. I've been detoxing from the polish fumes after the 31 Day Challenge!

I'm back with pink nails for October's Breast Cancer Awareness month. My family, like so many others, has been affected by this disease, so I thought it was time for me to post my first pink nails.

I used Wet N' Wild Mega Last - Candy-licious and then did different designs using Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Tickled Pink.

This is a lovely color combo and represents a good cause. What's your favorite pink of all time?
