OPI Better!

Hello Fellow Nail Lovers!

I'm excited to show this one to you all eventhough I know in the past month, it's been seen numerous times.  I'm just in a very merry, holiday mood and this one makes me want to ring in 2012 and party down with my honey.

It's OPI's Better! from the OPI Muppets collection.  It's a super silver shimmer with sprinkles of red glitter.
I hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year!  I wish you all health, wealth, and luck.  Happy 2012!

Zoya Phoebe

Hey Everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas weekend.  If you had to go back to work today like me, I wish you the best.  If you had a three day weekend, LUCKY YOU!  Speaking of lucky, my sweet and amazing boyfriend got me an Ulta gift card for my stocking, and I just couldn't wait to use it.  When I left work today, I went to straight to my local Ulta, and what to my wondering eyes did appear?  A HUGE NAIL POLISH SALE!

I think I spent about an hour there just to buy 5 bottles, but I did pick up the last bottles of each Zoya Paz, Lolly, and Phoebe.  I really think matte polish is still my favorite trend and I will wear it till I die, and probably in this gorgeous blue creme.

Ya know, I always say how much I hate blue, but I own more blue polish than almost any other color, and I wear it all the time.  I guess I need to change my future statements.

What color do you own the most of?

Essie Wrapped in Rubies Revisited

Hello and Merry Christmas!

I hope you all had a wonderful day.  I spent some really great quality time with my boyfriend's and my family.  We ate a lot and laughed a lot.  That's my favorite part.

I wanted to reswatch Essie Wrapped in Rubies for three reasons.  The first time I swatched it, I was just starting out and had a terrible photo.  Second, I feel like it is a really great Christmas color and I GOT A NEW CAMERA!  I am so excited because I have been using a camera phone for the past year.

Wrapped in Rubies is a shimmery burgundy with a slight gold sheen.  Honestly it's not one of my favorites eventhough I feel like it looks great on me.  The formula is really great and opaque in two coats.

What was your holiday polish pick?

popBeauty Pink Glitz

Hey all you lovely ladies!

Today I have a pretty glitter for you.  It's popBeauty Pink Glitz that I layered over yesterday's manicure.  I thought they would be cute together.

Pink Glitz is a super sparkly pink and silver glitter with just a few red ones in there.  I feel like it's a perfect holiday polish.  Maybe even better for New Year's.

I'm not sure I like what I did here, but my middle and ring fingers are fully polished, and my pointer and pinky fingers are sponged on the tip.  I think it was a total fail, but at least you got to see this sparkly gem.

Ulta Wicked

So this is a polish that I love eventhough I hate pink.  Yes!  I said it.  I hate pink, but I do wear it on my nails and my lips.  I got this beauty in a free gift, and I'm not crazy about the formula, but after 3 coats it's fantastic.

Don't you love it?!  And the gloss is totally original.  This is with no top coat.  Have a great night!

Sally Hansen Emerald Express


I've been noticing a lot of greens on the blogs these past two weeks so keeping with the holiday spirit, I wanted to share one of my favorites.

Sally Hansen Emerald Express is a gorgeous, almost metallic emerald green with a slight shimmer.  This is two effortless coats considering the super wide brush and fast drying formula.  Also please excuse the greasy fingers...cuticle oil.
I think out of all the Sally Hansen polishes, the Insta-dri is my favorite.  I am just way too impatient to wait and I usually end up smudging my nails before I even get to take a photo.  This one seriously dried to the touch in about 5 minutes.  And that's without a top coat.

Sinful Colors All About You

I just have a mini post today to compliment my mini Sinful Colors polish.  It's called All About You from the Fall 2009 Glitters collection.  I feel like it's so appropriate for holidays.  It is a gold shimmer with red glitter sprinkled throughout.

OPI Peach-a-Boo

Helloooo All!

I have been waiting for a sunny day to share this one with you.  OPI Peach-a-Boo is from the Summer 2008 Retro Fun in the Sun collection and is sadly now discontinued.  I'm really glad I was able to get my grubby hands on a bottle though.  And it has the Pro-Wide brush that makes the application super quick and easy.
It's a gorgeous, shimmery peach color with little pink sparkles.  It is a thin formula so this is 4 coats.  I think it would be a great layer rather than by its self.  Also the VNL is exposed, but that doesn't really bother me.

I would really LOVE to find the rest of this collection.  Especially Sit Under the Apple Tree and Lemonade Stand By Your Man.  Who hears Christmas bells?

An Apology with Love & Beauty Cherry Red

Hello Fellow Blogger!

First off, I want to apologize for falling off the face of the Earth, and not sharing all of the lovely polishes I've come across with you all.  As I've mentioned before, I work at Forever21, and my small store was being expanded from 5500sq/ft to 85000sq/ft.  Pretty large move right?  There was a lot of work that had to be done, and I was working overnight shifts for weeks at a time.  Thankfully it's done!  We've been open for a month now and everything has calmed down enough that I actually have time to myself.  That means time for NAILS!

With that said, I want to say thanks for sticking around.  Those of you that did.  Also I invite anyone else to come back at anytime and new bloggers to come and support me as well.

So what I have for you today is a Love & Beauty polish that I got a while ago.  It's a brilliant cherry red with small flakies in it.  It didn't photograph as well as I had hoped, but the color is still vibrant enough to catch anyone's attention.  Tell me what you think!

I know this one is not the best but it shows the flakies the best.
