On Wednesdays We Wear Pink! Essie Watermelon

Hey Everyone!! Hope your week is going well so far - we are half way there!! :) I am doing good - had a rough evening - I cut my foot open trying to move the dryer after I replaced a pump on it... stupid me was wearing flip flops :( My sisters came to my rescue and brought over some first aid supplies - so I am doing good - just got a lil limp going on.. lol
For this manicure I used on of my untried polises - Essie Watermelon... this has been on my wish list for a while now, so I was really happy to finally get it. A little over a month ago my sister Emily, my Mom and Myself all went shopping and the town we were shopping in had a store called Beauty Brands - so of course we had to stop by!! I got quite a nice haul and this was one of the polishes I bought. I really love this color and all colors like it :) So I used Orly Nailtrition and Nail Life Gripper as my basecoats, 2 coats of Essie Watermelon and used SV as my top coat. Now... on to the pics - Let me know what you think! Funny I don't like watermelon the fruit - but I love watermelon the color :)

this is the color IRL

St. Patrick's Day Manicure - China Glaze Starboard & Sinful Colors Snow Me White

Hey Everyone!! Long time - no post!! I feel like such a bad blog mommy! LOL I have been neglecting my little blog lately - but I have still been painting my nails and doing manicures. Also - I wanted to give a big shout out to all my new followers :) I still get soooo excited when I see new followers :) I really appreciate it!

Sooooo - I just recently got a new little Niece 2 weeks ago - which is one of the reasons I haven't been blogging regularly. I am so proud to introduce to you, my sister, Emily's new beautiful daughter!! Here she is.. Miss Hadley Sue!

So here is my St. Patrick's Day manicure... a little late I know!! But never the less.... I figured I might as well share it! :)

I used China Glaze Starboard - from the Anchor's Away Collection and Sinful Colors Snow Me White - which I have used in a couple other manis. I used LA Colors Nail Art Deco polish in green glitter for the 4-leaf clover - I applied it with a dotting tool. I used Revlon Post Trauma Nail Treatment for the base and SV for the top coat. On to the pics!! Let me know what you think!!


I have been trying a lot of different basecoats lately - my nails peel once they get so long. So I am trying to find a basecoat to help that....What's your favorite basecoat?
