On Tueday, I went to have my nails filled. I was tired of the plain ole nail polish look, so Sabrina(the girl who does my nails), suggested that we do a french tip using the Muppets collection. I needed something that stood out, so I decided to do an accent nail on each hand. Actually, I don't know what colors she used as I let her pick.
I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but in fact, I love it! It's subtle, yet has that glam factor that I like. I want something for the holiday season, but not a classic red and green and to be honest, I stink at nail art.
BTW, I have a lot of Nubar Dual Tip Nail Art Pens for sale. $2.00 each/plus shipping. Leave a comment if interested.
Yesterday, I received my Influenster’s VoxBox via their program. I've taught my 6 yr old niece well. She grabbed the imPress Press-on nails right out of the box even before I could get my hands on them. Within a matter of a few minutes, she had on the nails and loves them! The two of us already picked out several different pattern that we liked and plan on using the $1.00 coupon that was sent along with the box. Thank you Influenster for an awesome VoxBox. Oh, and Destiny thanks you too!

Two days ago, I decided to get my nails filled. I know, I know...a lot of people are "against" acrylics. I find that with them, my nails and hands look better. Without them, I feel like I have "man hands" as I call them.
I knew that I wanted to try OPI's Meep Meep Meep, since it looked so pretty on another bloggers nails. I usually don't wear reds as I do not think that red is a good color for my nails or me. I don't even own one piece of red clothing. But, I gave it a shot.
I'm still not sure what I think about it. I was thinking about using one of my BM plates and stamping a design with silver. Who knows. I just might change the color...everyday! For me, I'm not impressed with the color :/
Basecoat: Wet N Wild Carribean Frost, BM 212 peacock stamped with Rimmel Midnight Blue, Wet N Wild Hallucinate for some bling and SV topcoat.
In other news, hubby saw on Craigslist last night that a lady just closed down her salon and has over 80 bottles of brand new, never used China Glaze nail polish. We hopped right on it and sent her an email.
I spoke to her this morning and she told me that they were mine if I wanted them and that she also had a nail rack that we would give me.
We are going to her house tonight to pick them up.
I am so excited. This just made my year.
So, here's the thing. I do not need 80 bottles of polish. Well, yes I do LOL but I want to have a giveaway if I get enough followers. I just don't know how to set this blog up to have one. I'll have to figure that out or ask someone. I have other brands that I would like to giveaway as well.
I don't post often because I suffer from daily chronic headaches and they keep me laid up, so when I am having somewhat of a good day, I do my nails. I hope you can follow me, comment on what you think and see what I have to come.
This is my first attempt at water marbling. Personally, I think it looks much better in person then it does it the pictures. My nails still need to be cleaned up a bit. Nonetheless, I am still happy with the way it turned out. Start to finish, it took me an hour. That includes taping of the fingers and cleaning my fingers. The colors I chose for this mani were:
Two days ago, we traveled up to Detroit to the casino. Since we were in the area, I asked hubby if we could stop in at 5 Below. I was able to pick up:
2. Monster Balla
3. Power Chord
4. Favorite Girl
5. Sold Out Area
6. Platinum Record
Yesterday, while we were out, the hubby asked if I wanted to go to Sally's since we were right there. :faints: Um, yea! They had so many holiday kits by Orly and China Glaze that I am going back for. I was going to get them, but thought that I should think about it first. In the meantime, I purchased Finger Paints. I am new to this brand. Anyone who uses it, I would love your feedback :) I got:
Sally's was running a special. If you purchased 3 Finger Paints, you got a clutch wallet for FREE. They had teal(which I chose), red and a black and white floral.
1. Picasso's Puce
2. Copper Elements
3. Comet's Collar
Last but not least, I picked up a mini bottle China Glaze...(couldn't get a good picture of it).
1. Red Ruby
A cute story. R(the hubby) and I were laying in bed before bed and I told him how I want to go back and get this and that. He said "let's pay the mortgage first before you do anything" Lol.
I'ma thinking I scored a good deal. I just purchased The Metro Collection by China Glaze for $39.95 shipped! All 12 bottles. w00t. There are 3 that I am unsure of(color wise) and those are Midnight Magic, Skyscraper & Street Chic. My favorite out of this collection is Westside Warrior.
These are my toes. This is the work of my 6 yr old niece. Each toe was painted a different color from the Funky Fingers Island Collection. Then, she used China glaze and crackle-ized(her word) each nail with a different color. This pedi costs me 900 trillion billion dollars. She settled for a buck :)
