Acrylics & OPI DS Extravagance

Happy Sunday everyone ! Today's post is a bit late because I've been spending time with the family all weekend plus today . Anyway this is going to be a short post so I don't take away from family time . On Friday we had a free service day in cosmo so my friend said that I should do her acrylics. So I did and gave her a quick color . We only use odorless acrylic so these took a while to dry . Other than that I think I did a pretty good job ; hr & a half tops . Then for her color I used OPI DS Extravagance. I just noticed that day that my school had DS polishes so I was excited . Either way the application was flawless. It was such a beautiful color although I couldn't capture the holo in my school since we have fluorescent lights. Sorry in advance for the crappy phots . I hate the school's lighting . Well have a nice 4 day weekend . Enjoy !

China Glaze Sugar Plums

Another beautiful day here in Massachusetts. Summer is almost here , thank God . Well anyway here's another color from my recent haul . This is China Glaze Sugar Plums . I would say it's a little holographic in the sun but I'm not to sure . I couldn't capture it on camera. It's a burgundy color with small holo shimmers. It applied nicely and the formula was gorgeous. I used 2 thin coats and the color pay off was great. I think that this color looks beautiful on my skin tone . I just took it off 2 days ago & I already miss it. There's not much else to say it about it except that it's stunning in the light. Enjoy !

Teenage Dream

Hi ladies ! I hope you're enjoying your day. As you can see Judgement Day was a lie & we're all still here . Anyway I'm here with another swatch from my recent haul. The color is OPI Teenage Dream from the Katy Perry line . Let me just say that this is the most beautiful glitter I have yet to see. It's a nice rosy pink color chalk full of glitter. The application is smooth, but just apply evenly because of bald spots. I would wear it everyday if I could. Only problem I have is it's a pain in the butt to get off. They say that all the Katy Perry colors are compatible with Black Shatter but oh no no I wouldn't dare ruin this color with that shatter . Either way I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy !

Girls Day & Manicures

Hey ladies ; Happy Saturday ! Hope you're having a great weekend so far ! Lets get this post started. So my friend Paige and I had a little girl time one day after school. It was my first time being over there so she just took me on tour and we ate mozzarella sticks and watched some TV for a while. Shortly after we got a little bored and she suggested we review for finals and give each other manicures. ( since I study cosmetology in high school we had to give our seniors manis, pedis, and facials for our finals.) Anyway we ended up giving each other manis and I happen to be in love with the design she gave me . I love love it ! It's just a cute simple little abstract design. On her I did french tips and a flower accent nail. I'll include the colors and details under the pictures. I hope you Enjoy !

More Shatter ! Can't Get Enough !

Hey ladies hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday ! (: I haven't jumped on board with the On Wednesday We Wear Pink but who cares. Today's mani will be reallly simple. I actually did this a while ago before I moved but anyways I used OPI Who The Shrek Are You & OPI Ogre The Top Blue. Then I just layered OPI Black Shatter over it. Btw , I've been dying for Silver Shatter but everyone has been grabbing it /: Wahhhh . Oh well . Enjoy !

Collective Haul !

Hey ladies hope you are a having a wonderful Monday ! I know I am. So on Friday I went to Six Flags with my school and to my surprise I didn't spend all my money so what did I do with it ? NAIL POLISH SHOPPING !!! All OPI and China Glaze except for one you've seen already but I thought I'd include it. Both pictures were taking outside because my new home is currently out of order and I haven't found the proper lighting. Along with that I got some nail polish thinner you will see and some Nail Dry Spray. The Nail Dry Spray spray will be in a separate post because I will be reviewing it. Anyways I'll let the pictures speak for themselves . The color are truly beautiful . As for swatches they will be coming soon . I currently have the first color I'll be swatching on as I type this. So Enjoy !

 from left to Right ; OPI Nail Lacquer Thinner , OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui , OPI Planks A Lot ,OPI DS Mystery, OPI Teenage Dream, China Glaze Sugar Plums, and Pure Ice Taupe Drawer .

Pure Ice Taupe Drawer

Hey ladies I know this post is a little late but I've had a lot of homework like usual. Lately I've only had enough time to get on blogger and look at your amazing posts and then I'd be summoned by homework again. Anyway last weekend I went to Walmart to go grocery shopping and what not when one particular nail polish caught my eye. I had just walked down the aisle with nail polish initially to find a curette when I saw Pure Ice Taupe Drawer. I don't usually buy Pure Ice because of the immediate tip wear but this polish was different. I didn't see tip wear on this color until 4 days in. It's a nice creme taupe color. The application was smooth. I used 2 thick coats. You just really need to apply it evenly or you get bald spots. I added two layers of top coat which I think changed the color drastically but you can be the judge of this. So far I love this color. Enjoy !

Peace Tape Mani

If you guys remember these hands from the previous's because these are my friend's nails from the same day. After giving her a full manicure we decided to do some polish. I wanted to go for the firework effect but it didn't quite come out right. Instead they ended up looking like little peace signs. For the bottom color I used OPI Shorts Story and the overlay is OPI Black Onyx. I used very then pieces of scotch tape and this is what I came up with. Her nails are a bit nubby but they worked well for the job. Maybe next time I should try this on myself since I have longer nails. Welll Enjoy !

China Glaze Peppermint Cuticle Oil

First off guys sorry I've been gone so long. I've recently moved and I've just be settling in. I truthfully haven't done my nails since I been moving because I didn't see the point. They'd only chip,etc. I'm all settled in and have all the things I need. My next post will probably be a picture of my stash since I've gotten storage for them.

So today I'm just going to give you a review on China Glaze Cuticle Oil. This oil is absolutely amazing ! My cuticles are naturally in good shape but this oil makes them that much more amazing. The bottle I got is a mini bottle. I found this on the clearance aisle at Sally's Beauty Supply for 1.99. I will be going to buy more. It is very viscous so you don't need a lot. It goes on red but once you rub it you can no longer see it. All I have to say is that this products works wonders. I put it on every night before I go to bed and my cuticles look wonderful. Don't let the peppermint tag scare you either. It doesn't have to strong of a scent. It just smells like Christmas. Today the pictures are going to be of my friends nails. She's over for a little girl time so she let me give her a full manicure. Enjoy ! Also go check out my friend's blog at The Bieber Teaser .
