CHINA GLAZE: Ruby Pumps

Thursday's NOTD (nails of the day)

Well here it is folks. The one and only Ruby Pumps!

It is far more pretty on the nails but here are some shots anyways. It was impossible to capture the look of this colour. It is so sparkly!

CHINA GLAZE: For Audrey

Newbie to my collection!

So this one comes highly recommended by many nail bloggers and many YouTubers. I'm still not sure about it but it's nicer on the nail than in the bottle. So maybe I'll grow to love it like everyone else does :)

CHINA GLAZE: Secret Peri-Wink-Le

Newbie to my collection!

Just picked this one up, and it's really pretty. :)

OPI: Señorita Rose-alita

"Pink" Wednesday's NOTD

I don't really know what the design is for... I guess I thought the colour looked like it needed something. That's all. :)

OPI: Spark de Triomphe (lemming)

Sister's NOTD

So I know I already have a very sparkly gold (OPI: Bring on the Bling) but this is not a yellow gold it's like a silvery gold, almost platinum gold. Whatever it is, we think it's gorgeous!

This colour is sold as a set with a white shatter polish (Serina Williams Collection) so I never wanted to buy this colour as I already have the white shatter. So my sister and I decided to pass on it for now until we find it somewhere where it's sold all by it's self. Well, guess what. We FOUND IT!! We were shopping on vacation, and happened to walk in to a Chatters Store/Salon and low and behold, they had 2 bottles just sitting there calling our names. So we bought them and that was that. Yay for us! Lemming conquered!

OPI: Strawberry Margarita

Tuesday's NOTD

Ahhh, old faithful. I love this colour and the formula. Might be one of my all-time favorites actually.

So, this might be the next colour I buy since I've just been informed I'm moving to Manitoba! Just have to figure out what town in Manitoba. :)

OPI: Black Shatter

So yesterday I was checking out something random on the Internet an came across a whole bunch health risks, precautions and warnings about nail polish. I basically went on a researching rampage after that I didn't really like what I found out about nail polish. So today I was kind of feeling discouraged I guess. Anyways, I did paint my nails today, but I forgot to take a picture. So instead, I took a picture of the Shatter experiment I did tonight. I wanted to see what colours shattered the best and which have the best final result overall. I haven't decided the results yet but I'll keep you posted. Good night!

Tuesday's NOTD

It's Pink with gold shimmer throughout.

OPI: Bring on the Bling

Tuesday's NOTD (nails of the day)

Good lord. What was I thinking with this colour?!?!?

First off, I totally broke 2 nails tonight (one on each hand) so I ended up chopping all of them off. :( But it's fine, I'm over it. They will grow back.

Secondly, I thought I'd take a colour request from my sister to spruce up these short little nails and this is what she selected. OK, SURE! I'll try out my only gold polish! But this picture is how it turned out. How disgusting!! Haha oh well. I'm totally gonna wear it anyways. :)

See you again tomorrow!

OPI: I Eat Mainely Lobster

Sunday's NOTD (nails of the day)

So this is such a beautiful colour but my camera doesn't pick it up! Ugghh. I will attempt to take a better shot and repost this NOTD.

Nail Art: Single flower

So I didn't think I'd be able to make another corner flower on my right hand so this was the next best thing.

Nail Art: Corner Flower

Just thought I would spruce up the nails a tiny bit....

OPI: Ogre the Top Blue

CONQUERED!! .....and it is SO beautiful!

OPI: Servin' up Sparkle

French tips with a twist! I like this polish. It has mostly silver sparkles but there are many sparkly colours too.

This is called an Embossing Tool Set from Michaels. This set was only $8.00. It has 5 different dot sizes. It was hard to find in that huge store though so I recommend asking someone that  works there for guidance and even possibly showing them this picture. Seriously.  Good luck!


OPI: Ogre the Top Blue

Today will be my second attempt at this colour. I made a mess of it the first time I tried to wear it but I think it will look beautiful, if I can keep it from making a mess. We'll see later today....

OPI: Failed again...

Ugghh. Ya see, didn't work. I love this colour but I cannot paint it on right and if one day it looks kind of ok, I smudge it. So I shall try again another day.

OPI: Playing the Peonies

I have attempted to wear this colour 3 times but so far have been unsuccessful at painting it on. I end up removing it out of frustration. I'll shall try again though, I'll keep you posted.

Top Coat Favorite

Sally Hansen: Mega Shine Top Coat


So this is my first time using a Sally Hansen top coat but this one seems to be pretty good. It dries super fast which is important to me as I ALWAYS smoosh my polish as soon as I paint it on!! So that's good plus it is very shiny. So I like that. I'm going to try some other Sally Hansen top coats in the future and I'll post reviews on those ones as well.

Ok, I got carried away with the dots....

Nail Art: Dots

OPI: Atomic Orange

Thursday's NOTD

This picture is actually showing a very true-to-colour image. Finally, the lighting is on my side!
