Hello all!!!! Are you intrigued by my obscure title??? I bet you are, that’s how I get ya! BOOM! I’ve been working with the PUEEN stamping plates and I’m quite pleased. I really like some of the designs, and I don’t feel like there are repeats of Bundle Monster and/or Konad. If I wanted two sets of BM plates, I would just buy them, ok people. Get original ideas please, thank you. I LOVE blue–dark, light, dusty, etc. and what ever other adjective you can think of that pertains to blue! I especially love color schemes that have a dark/light shade on one of another of the same color family. So here’s my take on it:
The base color is Essie Go Overboard, which is a killer color; stamping color is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Water Color and PUEEN 15. I really, really like the contrast!!!! I was really pleased how this mani came out. I specifically wanted to use a stamp that interchanged the image, which is hard to come by. Me no like.
What do you think? I want to try it with purples and perhaps pinks? I don’t know, but it’s lovely and I loved it. Let me know what you guys think!! I really like reading your opinions and feedback on manicures, I’m not going to cry in a corner if you say something I don’t like
I also entered in a nail art contest, which there was a previous post so please refer to that to vote for me!!!! If you do vote for me, thanks and if you don’t, for shame!!!!!!

Hey everyone!!! What’s going on?? This weekend thus far has been hell at work, holy balls was it busy!!! Yowza! Thank god it’s over for the most part. Let’s move on shall we, I change my manicure about once a week, twice if I have the time and energy to. This was last week’s I think, or maybe it was the first half of this week’s…………..well it was recent either way.
The base color is Revlon’s Colorstay Blue Slate which is a really nice deep blue/gray. I bought this on a whim while walking through a grocery store and didn’t think anything of it. As I was sitting there pondering my polish choice, I figured why the hell not and I was pleasantly surprised. You know my love of dots, so of course I had to break out my dotting tools. The lightish pink color is Orly Decades of Dysfunction and the bright pink is Orly Passion Fruit. On my left hand, I thought I would be slick and reverse the pinks, which didn’t work out too well because Passion Fruit is really sheer, but it looked nice anyway.
I messed with the lighting so you could see the dots, which it makes the base look really light, which it isn’t so that was kind of 50/50 deal there. The picture below is untouched:
It looks more true to color in this photo than the one above.
It’s a nice color, you should get it and love it!
Well, my dearies, that is all for now. Clicking on the picture will make it bigger, so that’s a plus right!?!? Dam straight it is!
Hey everybody!!! How are you on this fine Monday night? Can I get a what, what Jay-Z style?! Hell yeah, you party animals! Nothing much going on in my world– apartment searching is the only big thing really.
Anyway, you all know my love affair with stamping, and that I have been having trouble with the PUEEN plates. I doth think I solved my problem!!! I discovered if I swipe from the left corner diagonally, and then once from left to right of the image it comes out perfect!!! So with my new courage and stamping courage I picked PUEEN 04 this time.
Stamping+dots+me= glorious nails!!!! MUA HA HA HA!!!!! Sorry, guys…….back on topic! So I saw these awesome dots and some of them were reversals of the other dots, so some were filled in and others weren’t. I always do stamping with black so I decided to mix it up and add some color. I painted my nails Fade Into Hue from China Glaze, which is a gorgeous periwinkle creme, and stamped this image using China Glaze Liquid Leather. Then I took a dotting tool and filled in the filled in dots with Zoya Purity. Below is the master piece:
I love the way this came out! The ring finger is a bit askew, but I always have to get like 2 or 3 fingers done before I get it evened out. I thought it was a nice way of adding some color to the dark-colored palette. This is actually the mani I am currently sporting until tomorrow when I change it. I love this base color!!! China Glaze is DEFINITELY the best in making cremes, they are flawless and the color is amazing!!
Let me know what you guys think of this too and what other colors I should have used or use in the future!!! Plus, don’t forget if you click the picture it will become bigger, like whoa!
I will see YOU later, have a good night everyone!!!
Happy Tax Day everyone!!!! I just filed my taxes and I get back a whopping $3 from Federal!!!! I can finally buy that Chanel bag now! What a joke, I hate taxes and paying out the ass every paycheck…..damn you government!!!! I think Ron Swanson would be proud lol.
Well, I do believe that my first post to this blog last year was on April 1st, so my blog-irthday was a few days ago and I was too busy to even notice!!!! How sad!!!!! I don’t really do anything for my birthday, so I guess it’s only fitting that I didn’t do anything for this one too. I was thinking about doing a giveaway with some of the polishes I haven’t used and probably won’t use, but then that just seems like the cheap skate way to go, or “economical” as I like to say. Anyway, thanks for sticking around everyone that follows/read this blog. I really do appreciate it, I didn’t really expect much when I started it and the fact that you guys actually enjoy my random ramblings and potty mouth, is quite refreshing! LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!! (Please don’t stalk me )
I was smitten with Zoya’s Blaze when it first debuted and I recently obtained it during one of their sales and it’s gorgeous. I guess one could say it is a scattered holo, I don’t really care what it is called, shit is amazing ok? Get it, wear it and love it you fools!I messed with the highlights and what not so you could see the holo in the polish. This is a really gorgeous color and I’m not one for reds as you know, but it was more of a deep red-ish burgundy color on me. Beautiful.
Enjoy, as always!!!!!! Thanks again for following my blog and looking at it! I really do appreciate it, thanks everyone!!!!!!
First, I would like to give a shout out to Varnished Reputation for nominating me for another Liebster Award. I am extremely flattered and honored that she would think of me for this!!! Thanks again and you rock!!! So show her some love for fucks sake!!!
Happy Easter everyone (for those that celebrate)!!! I’m not doing much today, I’ll be making pork chops later for my boyfriend and I considering we are chilling at home this Easter. I’m not really that big into holidays really, which I’m sure there are some religious folks saying “OH MY GOSH!!!” lol Oh well, the only holidays I really like and look forward to are New Year’s and Halloween; New Years for the booze and Halloween for the candy!! AM I RIGHT!??! I know I am, so we will move on. This mani I wore like last month or so and I fucking loved the way this turned out!!!! The base color/stamping color is China Glaze Urban Night, the silver holographic is Julep Rebel and stamp is BM 322. Julep Rebel is my first Julep polish and it was pretty good, considering it was a holographic polish, but it chipped easily but whatever I guess. I love this purple from the China Glaze Metro Collection (2011)!! I first found this color is a nail salon and instantly fell in love and took forever for me to obtain, I had to get it on Ebay, but so glad I did! It’s the BEST plum creme ever!!! *swoon*
I do apologize for my cuticles, they look really dry in here and it’s not really that great. Anyway, do you see this color??!?! Amazing right?!?! LOVE IT!! I just really like the way this came out, love it!
What do you guys think?? Any suggestions of colors for the houndstooth pattern?

Hey everyone!!!! I’m on my second day off in a row, woo hoo! So I’ve been marathoning Parks and Recreation, I never really thought it was that great, but it’s pretty good. I love Ron Swanson, he’s so awesome and amazing lol. Back to the nails y’all!! I really love stamping because I’m very inept at freehand art. I use this stamp a lot, because it is just so gorgeous! I really like the color combination of pink and black, even though I am not a fan of pink. Here it is:
I love the way this looks! I did the base color thinking that I would just do a pink manicure, but pinks/reds just look really odd on me, I don’t know why, I guess my skin tone?? Whatevers, dam those hues!! The base color is Orly Cotton Candy, stamping Finger Paints Black Expressionism (like usual) and BM 323. These two look bomb ass bomb together! I recommend everyone trying this! My adventures in stamping keep coming! Watch out!!!
Let me know what you think, and what your favorite stamp look is?
See you guys later!!!
Howdy all!!! Just for the record, I have no clue how I have went this long without listening to Lana Del Reys’ album Born to Die. It’s amazing. Heaven. Omg, so good (I’m listening to it as I write). Spring is on its way!!! Is anyone else excited about the new spring collections coming out??? I got a 4 of the new China Glaze Avant Garden colors and they are amazing–formulas are great and so is the saturation of color. I love a good creme finish and in turn I have a ton of them! My favorite navy is China Glaze First Mate–great application and levels itself out which is a really good quality for a creme. Also, I am subscribed to the Nail Art Society, as you may know; the last one contained these LOVE nail charms/decals. One day at work I was just daydreaming and thinking of how I can use them and thought I could do a french tip with them. Here is the evidence:
It came out just like I wanted!!! You will most likely not see me with a french tip manicure, because my nails are too short normally, so this is as close as it gets. This is also my first time working with nail charms or anything of this nature.
Few issues I encountered:
- These are incredibly hard to grab so I used tweezers to pick them up.
- These DO NOT lay flat so I lost three in the shower the next day and then the rest later that day at work from snagging on things
- If you use too much nail glue, it messes up your base coat as you can see on my middle finger
I first used nail glue and tried to bend the decals to my nail shape, so they would lay flatter, but that really didn’t work. After the nail glue dried, I used topcoat thinking this would help them last longer—WRONG. It just added more top coat so nothing really accomplished there. Anyway, I liked the way they looked and how it came out and plus, you can’t go wrong with gold and navy!

What do you guys think? Would you ever use these?
