Hi everyone! It's been one hot minute hasn't it? Between my last post and now I honestly haven't been dressing my nails up like I use to. It's depressing but I'm trying to get back into the groove of things. My collection has grown to over 400+ and it's overflowing by the minute!


NAME

What I'm wearing:
Apple Barrel 'White' acrylic paint (stripes)
Apple Barrel 'Pure Pink' acrylic paint (roses)
Wet n Wild 'Candy-licious' NP
Essie 'Mint Candy Apple' NP

For the past two weeks I've found time to dress up my nails with some fancy designs and embellishments. I am currently wearing some toned down 3D nails with some cute little vintage roses. All hand painted by me may I add.

Hopefully this time I'm coming back strong!

Hello all my nail polish addicts! It's been awhile since I've posted on here hasn't it? I apologize for that. Life has totally taken over and I haven't found the time to keep up with this blog. Sigh. I need to get back on the bandwagon! I've got some neat hauls to share with you :)

Until soon...

 P.S stay polished!

This is my first and last St. Patrick's Day mani because I personally think my fingers don't look good in Green (and Blue, but I keep buying it!) and I actually only own four shades of the color. Can you tell I'm not a huge fan of the color?

NAME
For this mani I kept it really simple and uncomplicated and you can't get anymore uncomplicated with a tape french design with some added dots and a cute tiny four left clover (that I got in a Confetti packet...cute right?). For the Green I stuck with Nyx Sour Lime because I didn't want the clover to get lost if I was to use a darker shade.

What colors don't your fingers look good painted?

NAME
Starbucks raspberry flavored black tea. Sunny downtown Hawai'i. Glitter overload!

Hawai'i was extra sunny yesterday. I was blinding myself with my nails. About a month ago I purchased some Faux Jeffrey Campbell Glitter Lita's. The glitter on those bad boys were amazing and I wanted badly to wear a polish that was that glittery. I had no luck in finding one but I did combine two of my favorite multi glitter polishes; NYX Carnival (swatch being added soon) which is a mix of small and large hexagon glitter and Rite Aid's Multi Glitter Pumpkin polish which is packed with micro glitter goodness!

NAME
Indoor fluorescent lighting

I did 2 thin coats of the Multi Glitter Pumpkin Polish, 1 coat of NYX Carnival and one last coat of the multi glitter. Topped it with Seche Vite and called it a day!

NAME
Natural outdoor lighting.

Look who the wind just blew in! I know I've been extremely MIA lately but surprisingly I've gained 21 new followers! Welcome :) I promise this time I'll keep on top of my post. I hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years! Many more post to come in the New Year.

NAME

These are actually some gel nails that I did back in November or early December. I used the colored gels that featured in my Ebay Nail Art Supplies post. Just a quick review, their awesome! Not sticky or hard to use at all. They don't have a funky smell or horrible thick. Their perfect. They're also packaged in a nice white container ensuring that they stay fresh.

FAQ on gels:
1) Do I need a UV lamp?
Yes! How else do you expect your nails to cure you silly goose! Granted, there are SOME 'gel' products out there that don't require a UV lamp (like the ASP Light-less Gel Kit) but for the more often than most you'll need a lamp.

2) Can I just use a regular desk lamp?
Someone actually asked me this question. No joke. You need a UV Lamp or the gel won't set. I personally use a 9W but I'm thinking about upgrading to a 36w.

3) Can I just sit outside and wait for it to cure?
Sure. If you're willing to sit out there the whole day :P

4) My nails are sticky after I take them out of the light! What do I do?
Gel cleaner. I've used non-acetone nail polish remover and it works just as good!
If you have any more questions feel free to leave a comment :)
