My Franken Attempt

Happy Sunday all!

I hope everyone's weekend isn't going by as fast as mine seems to be. So I know I have failed in my attempt to post every Thursday. My family and I are getting ready to head back to our home state so I have been preparing for that, mostly mentally but still.  I am trying to make up for not posting Thursday by posting today. Anyways today I decided at trying out making a franken polish. I have never really tried it before. I don't count putting holographic powder into a top coat a franken. What is a "franken" you ask? It basically consist of mixing nail polishes you already have together to make a new awesome polish. So what happens when I mix Spoiled Trust Fund Baby, Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Glass Slipper, China Glaze Inner Beauty, Sally Hansen Xtream Wear Strobe Light and OPI Top Coat into an old bottle of OPI Alpine Snow??

Gradient

Hello!

So today is Thursday! Do you know what that means? Its a half day at work, so I am making it blog posting day. Once a week is better then once every 6 months right? Anyways, I keep seeing all these gradients around the nail world and wanted to do it. So I went to Ulta to "just look around" which is not humanly possible for me. Why is it when I tell myself that I'm not going to buy anything they have every polish that is on my wish list.  Even the hard to finds. Ulta is out to get my wallet! Anyways, I picked up a whopping 4 polishes today, and one was so pretty I just had to use it right away.

On to the manicure! So today I used Essence in Date in the Moonlight, A-England in Ascalon, and OPI Pirouette My Whistle!

Tape Mani!

Hello!

Okay I know I am officially the worst blogger ever and I'm sorry!! So I hope that this really cute mani and a promise of trying to update more will make up for it? This tape mani is created by using "home made decals" using plane old tape and and border scissors! My camera was dead so I decided to use my phone to take the pics. It was a now or never kind of deal. Alright on the the fun stuff!

This mani ended up being an all Julep one. What can I say I love them! I used Sienna, Sasha, and Daphne.

Pink Wednesday!

This is my first ever Pink Wednesday post! I originally wanted this mani to be a Valentine's Day mani but I did it to early so I'm using it as my Pink Wednesday post. Please excuse the pictures this is before I had my lightbox all set up. Which is really why I didn't post it to begin with but I still love it!

Simple Valentine's Day Mani!

Hello everyone!
I know Valentine's day is pretty much over but I have been sick and the Texas weather has be less then cooperative so that explains my absence. I have built a lightbox so I do not have to rely so heavily on the sun anymore. So I finally got my lightbox up and my camera all reconfigured where is captures the nail color as accurately as possible! 

So today my Valentine's day manicure was super simple yet so cute and bright!!
I used OPI Fly for my statement nail and Spoiled by Wet N' Wild in Fuzzy Dice.

The heart was some nail confetti that I got for Christmas from my mom I believe she got it from Sally's. It flashes green but it is so hard to catch on camera!

Now it is Valentine's Day so I thought I would talk to you about a new love in my life, and that is Spoiled nail by Wet N' Wild nail polish! Above is the only colors I have but believe me I will be buying more. I will do a full review on them at the end of the week. They are only a $1.99 at CVS so keep your eyes out for them!!

I hope everyone has enjoyed their Valentine's Day! I have a Pink Wednesday mani for you guys tomorrow! I would love to know what you had on your nails today!

Today's Nails

Happy Sunday everyone! Well the weekend is almost over and like always it never feels long enough. I would like to say I am sorry for my absence. My fiance and I decided to do a little early spring cleaning in order to organize our life better. I have been focusing all my attention on cleaning and organizing and not much else. Although I have been playing around with some new nail polishes and I am waiting on my order of 4 of the 6 China Glaze magnetic polishes! 

So enough of the "Life" portion lets get on with the "Lacquer"! Today's Nails are a combo of 3 polishes and and Fauxnad stamp! Please forgive me for not showing you each layer I did not take pictures of each one because I had no intentions of posting this mani. Again I'm sorry!! 

First up we have Julep in Leah. This is such a beautiful green, it has the most subtle shimmer in it and it is amazing. This was part of my very fist Julep Maven box and it I must say I love it. If you want to know more about Julep Mavens Click Here!
