Hey everybody! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but, I just wanted to say happy New Year’s Eve! My promise for the new year is to post more, maybe. Between work and work, I don’t find much time to post or the energy.

Happy New Years! Enjoy 2015!

I’m back!!!

14 Mar

Holy.Shit. What’s up??!??!  It’s been soooooo long and I have no one to blame but myself.  I hope I haven’t disappointed anyone too much with my lack of being here, and if so, I’m sorry.  WELL, I have been super busy with work, but that won’t be an issue much longer.  I have been doing my nails, sort of, and I have been taking pictures and what not; but let’s face it, my old cam was a bit on the poopy side.  It was really old and I finally broke down and bought a new one!!!!!!!!! Hooray for me and you sexy bitches!  So excited!!! I think the pictures are much, much better and more consistent with correct color portrayal and overall quality.  As always, please give me some helpful tips for better photos, because I just point, focus and snap–and that’s it, so no process whatsoever.

ANYWAY,  recently Zoya had a sale buy 3 polishes for shipping cost only, which was great because I wanted the Pixie Dusts which were like $10 a pop.  I bought Zoya Payton with my other two polishes, and I’m so mad at myself for waiting so long to buy this one!  It is gorgeous!!!  It is a dark purple/red with a scattered holo (I think?); it’s just effin amazing ok?! Get off my back!

Zoya PaytonSee, I told you so!!! Amazing!! It’s so gorgeous in sunlight, and alas I do my nails at night so……sorry? Forgive me??  Well, you just have to buy it now to see what I’m saying and then thank me later.

I will be posting more (hopefully), I just have to get my shit together!

Caio!

Happy Holidays!

25 Dec

Hey there you crazy nuts!  Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays!! I hope I don’t spark any “Defend Christmas” debates, just wishing all a good holiday season and the worst/best is over 🙂 or 😦  Hope everyone is enjoying their day(s) off from work!  I promise I will post something nail related relatively soon; I’ve been working 6 days for about a month and half now? I don’t know the last time I had two days off from work in one week,shit’s been rough!!  Love you all!

 

Wiedersehen!

Gobble, gobble!

28 Nov

Hey everyone! Just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving and Hanukkah to everyone!!! I’ve been M.I.A. because of work and general life stuff; I work retail so the next few months are going to be shit, all of those that currently and have worked retail will understand.  On that note, don’t be assholes to the workers; they would rather be home with their families but are forced to work due to shitty CEOs.  Shame on those companies that are making their people working later tonight!

FOR SHAME!!!!!!!!

I will try to do a post sometime soon, but I’m running short of manicure ideas and time!!  Enjoy everyone!

Hey, It’s Me Again!

5 Sep

HEY EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!  I’m back to much of your pleasure!  OMG, I missed you guys so much!!! I haven’t blogged in I don’t know how long.  So long story short, I was having computer issues and I couldn’t edit photos and such, but we got that all fixed and BOOM! Here it is.  I’m still in the process of transferring pictures, so I have only new manicures to show you.  I know, how awful! I am obsessed with splatter manicures as you may know, and behold! another one!  The base coat is China Glaze Liquid Leather, the white is Finger Paints Papier Mache and the hot pink is Orly Passion Fruit.  

BlackWhiteHotPinkSplatI also have a new watermark, which I’m not sure I like.  I can’t seem to remember what font I was using on my last one, so I’ll figure it out eventually.  So the order I did this in was black, pink and white, which didn’t turn out too well.  On my other  hand, I did black, white and then pink, which looked TEN TIMES better!  The white overshadowed the hot pink because it was so sheer, so I thought to myself “hey, you put white under neons” and voila! it worked fabulously on my right hand.  Well, enough of the chit-chat y’all, so expect more from me, more frequently!

Wiedersehen!!

Tip of Love

11 Mar

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:

 

China Glaze First Mate withe Love CharmsIt 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!

 

 

***clicking on the picture will make it larger as well*** 

 

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