Earth Day Manicure - OPI Don't Mess With OPI

Happy Earth Day! I wanted to do a quick post of my Earth Day manicure....I had a hard time getting a shot without a glare over the accent nail - but you get the point :) I used OPI Don't Mess With OPI for the base and for the "recycle" symbol I used my "go-to" white polish - China Glaze White on White. I created the symbol I just free-handed it with a small paint/art brush I bought from Michael's a while back....

Enjoy the pics! Did you create a special Earth Day mani?  If so comment a link to you pic so I can check it out :)

Essie Play Date and Nicole by OPI Roughles Sand in My Shoe - Easter Manicure

Happy Easter Everyone!
This year's Easter manicure I decided to do something simple. Honestly I just came up with it this morning and finished it as my family was arriving for our cookout. I used Essie Play Date for the main part of my manicure and Nicole by OPI Roughles in the shade Sand in My Shoe on my accent nail. I thought both of these colors were really "spring/easter" like. This is the first time I've used the roughles type of polish - I really like it :) I am not sure if I would use it on all my nails or not but I really like the texture and color too! To create my little bunny I used China Glaze White on White and a Sally Hansen nail art striper in black for the eyes. Now on to the pics... I hope everyone had a great weekend and a great Easter :) 

SIDE NOTE** I think I would like to start doing some nail art "how to" videos on YouTube - would anyone be interested in that? Comment below and let me know :)

Sonia Kashuk - Raincheck

Hey Everyone!! Long time no post :) So basically I've been MIA for a while as you can tell considering it's seriously been an entire YEAR since my last post. But what can I say? It is what it is... lol

For this post I've got a really pretty blue polish that I bought from Target last weekend. I swear my sister Emily and my mom and I go to Target every. single. weekend. That is not an exaggeration it is the truth LOL I am sure we aren't the only ones to do that? Anyone? Anyone? LOL Oh well.

Now let's get on to the polish. For this manicure I used Nail Life Nail Revitalizer as my basecoat and two coats of Sonia Kashuk Raincheck and one coat of Out the Door as my top coat. I really love this color - it's a gorgeous blue and this polish was a very nice formula. It was smooth and barely took 2 coats. This is actually only my 10th bottle of Sonia Kashuk polish and I have to say it's my favorite.

So take a look at the pics and let me know what you think! Have you tried any Sonia Kashuk polishes?

Essie Birthday Manicure

Hello Everyone :)
Today I have a special post/manicure - I've got a birthday manicure for my mom :) Today was her birthday so I decided to a little something special for her.

For the following manicure I used China Glaze as my basecoat along with Wet n Wild French White as the base color. I then used the opposite end of my clean-up brush to place the dots of my color on my nails. I started with the darkest color - Essie No More Film, then the next color was Essie Avenue Maintain, then Essie Hip-Anema and last I used Essie Tart Deco. I finished the manicure with Seche Vite Top Coat.

I really ended up being pleased with this manicure and it is really different than things I normally do.

My inspiration for this manicure was those little candy dot sprinkles that you can put on cupcakes and stuff... hahaha you know the ones I'm talking about?

Anyway here is a couple of pics of my manicure as well as a pic of my beautiful mama!! :)

China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint - The Long Lost Manicure

Hello Everyone :)
Hope you all had a great weekend! My weekend was great :) Never long enough, but what can you do haha

So this weekend I was cleaning off one of my camera cards and I came across a manicure that I did for Christmas and never posted haha! I figured what the hell.. better late than never right? So below are pics of one of my Christmas manicures...but the fact that it is a great spring color it kind of fits right?

For the base I used China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint and for the accent "peppermint" nail I used Wet N' Wild French White. Obviously the name of the polish was part of the inspiration for the accent nail :)
