A Christmas Manicure

Hiiiii,

The other day I completed my Christmas nails for the year, and thought I’d share them.  I adore this new trend–half moon–and figured it’d be fun to try the style with Christmas colours and glitter.

Thanks for reading!  I plan to have a new video up tomorrow, as my friends are going to *hopefully* make a guest appearance for a Christmas tag!  I’ll have a link up soon.  Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all!

Essie Absolutely Shore

Happy sunday!  It’s a beautiful march day today, and in spite of that, I’ve painted my nails a very spring-y colour.  It is very strange doing this because I’ve been so used to the dark colours for winter, but I’ve dusted off my spring/summer polishes, and they’re ready for the next few months!  Yipee!  I’m ready for a change.

Absolutely Shore was from one of Essie’s summer collections I believe in 2011, called “Brazilliant”.  I love mint in general, especially in nail polish form, so I picked it up and I love it!  I’m not sure if it’s still available, seeing it was from a couple years ago, but I thought I would snap a picture of it anyways, because it is a beautiful colour.  I’m thinking about starting up my OOTDs and NOTDs again since the new season is approaching, and I’ve been getting some of my older clothes out.

Butter LONDON’s ‘Bossy Boots’ seems similar to this colour, being a very bright, light green-based mint.  Absolutely Shore looks a white from a far, but up close it is a almost beige-y green.  I guess they’re calling it ‘pistachio’.

I used three coats without a top coat.

 

What’s your favourite colour to wear for spring?  Have a great week!

 

 

Blog Love: pshiiit.com– Awesome Nail Combos

Hey guys!  So about a week ago I found a really good nail blog, and wanted to share!  It is all in french, but I personally just like getting inspiration from their pictures!  My google chrome automatically translates everything for me, but of course it’s not all in proper order and stuff because french is a lot different than english.  I personally like just plain, classy nails, and they have lots of pictures of ways to kind of spice up your regular solid colour without making it totally overboard.  She has the same taste in nails as I do, and I just really enjoy looking at tons of pictures!

Beware…you will immediately want to paint your nails after you go see her blog!!

So, I’ll talk to you guys soon!  Thanks for reading!

NOTD: OPI Sweetheart & Metallic 4 Life

So I recently painted my nails and I wanted to show you guys what they looked like!  Kind of a strange spin from what I usually go for, but I actually saw something exactly like this on a girl in my art class, and wanted to recreate it!  The two colours I used were OPI Sweetheart (on eight of the nails) and OPI Metallic 4 Life from the Nicki Minaj collection a while ago on my ring fingers.  I think this would look good with any neural glitter on the ring fingers, I just tried it with this one!

Excuse the humongous swollen fingers! ;)

 

 

Thanks for reading!  Talk to you soon!  If you do your nails like this, link me a picture!  I’d love to see!

SOFC Week 4: 5 Ways To Sport Turquoise- Wednesday

Hey guys!  So I have yet another way to sport some turquoise!  Of course, nail polish!  I recently bought a Essie Luxeffects polish in “Set In Stones” and paired it with another Essie shade in “Turquoise and Caicos”.  Sorry this is up so late, I have been sort of busy having a life!! (YAY! Finally!), and haven’t been able to get these posts up until close to midnight.  I hope that’s alright with you guys!  Tomorrow I will have a OOTD with turquoise in it.  But for now, enjoy my NOTD!!

 

 

Ta da!  A little crazy, but nice for once and a while! (:

 

It’s currently dark out right now, so here’s some pictures that other people have taken of the two polishes:

 

Pictures from here and here.

Turquoise and Caicos is one of my all time favourite polishes.  It is a two (or three) coater, that has some type of a jelly formula to it.  Click the second link above if you’d like to hear Temptalia’s review on it!  I would say it isn’t as neon as in the picture above, but it definitely isn’t a dull shade.  If you are looking for a staple turquoise shade, try this one!  It’s permanent!

As for the Set In Stones (from the luxeffects collection), it is an awesome polish too.  Of course it may not be for some people, but I think it is a nice thing to have because it is a great basic silver glitter.  There is tons of glitter in it, leaving quite a bit on your nail.  You would probably only need two coats to get an entire glitter nail.  It is so crazy it almost covers up the turquoise I paired it with.  I think it would look stunning with a silver polish like Revlon Silver Dollar under it.  I believe it is a permanent collection, and I bought mine at Wal Mart.  You can read my review on another polish from the Essie Luxeffects Collection here- Essie Shine Of Times.

I hope you enjoyed!  Thanks for reading!  I will talk to you guys soon!  Have a great night/morning!  Bye!
