I'm crazy for blue!

I'm not a blue or green fan at all.
Besides the fact that most of them
stain your nails really bad,
I find that they don't look good 
with my skin tone. 

But I have to say that I love this color a lot!
This is SC Kissy.
It's a dupe for some colors that are already out there,
but this is cheaper. 
I can't buy those expensive brands
so I'm all for cheaper brands making dupes.

I do have to say that the down side is
that it stains your nails.
I used 2 coats of my base coat 
so my nails where safe from stains,
but when removing it, 
my fingers got all the stains. 
A cotton ball soaked in acetone 
removed most of the blueish tone. 
After that I went at it with at file 
and I got all the stains out.

It's consistency reminds me a lot of Daddy's Girl.
It's really sheer and required 3 coats.
It's formula is like a jelly.
Pain in the ass to apply and remove
but it's a beautiful color.

Chocolate moon!

I used SC Nirvana for the tips,
which is a beautiful chocolate smooth brown,
and Bettina Glamour Celebrate for the moon,
which is an amazing sparkly gold. 
I love it, and it a shame that I don't use it more often.

So pink!

What I used:
Boom Boom, Chunky Holo Candy,  Fuschia Glitter,
24/7, nail art in black, white and silver. 



I really don't know what else to say about this mani.
It's pretty much my style and what I like.
Love doing random nail art. 
Any questions let me know!

My first owl nail art attempt!

I have seem a lot of owl nail art going around
and I really wanted to try it. 
Wasn't to happy with the result
because it wasn't perfect.
My OCD wouldn't let it go! 
But anyways, I think I did a pretty good job. 

I found this blog randomly online 
and I loved her owl nail art
so this is my attempt at recreating it!

I used SC Boom Boom [the pink]
and SC Out of this World [sheer silver with shimmer] 
for the base of the ring finger.
The brown color is SC Nirvana
and the white is SC Snow Me White.

Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day girls!
Hope you have a great day with the one's you love!
I'm just here at home with my son.
A new kind of love! 

I'm having a total metal block! 
Can't decide what to do
and when I decided, I hated it! 
I have a good idea but I just couldn't express it well...

I took it off right after I took the pics.
Right now my nails are naked!
I think I'm just going to use 24/7 
with some kind of accent nail.

Really loving China Glaze!

I  have never bought CG before,
because they are a bit out of my budget. 
I recently got like 5 on SALE at Sally 
and I'm really loving them!
Great formula, fast drying and amazing colors!

This are Tempest [base color] and Skyscraper [glitter].

My first Valentine's Day mani!

I'm really not a fan of VDay, at all!
The only Holiday that I really like is
Halloween! hahaha

I used two coats of Bettina 187
one coat of Orly Bubbly Bombshell
and one coat Kleancolor Kiss Goodbye 
for the pink base color and the heart, 
and SC Snow me White 
with Color Club Art Club in black 
for the zebra print. 
Then Rite Stripe for the silver line and heart outline.
Wow, that's a lot of nail polish!
Looks complicated but it's so simple.

I ♥ pink!

I can't deny it.
Pink is my favorite nail polish color.

This is a no name pink [11003] from GAP.
Has a little hidden shimmer.
Looks pretty similar to SC Cream Pink,
the only thing is that the shimmer in Cream Pink 
is more noticeable.
