Wild at Heart with Black Tips

I wanted to get a couple of more days out of this one so I used tape and added black tips to cover the tip wear:

I couldn’t find my scotch tape so I tried using the blue painters tape but it didn’t work and I messed up my index finger. I had to redo it after I found the regular tape. I really like this purple/black combination! 🙂

And here are bonus pictures of my kitty!

Zoya Ivanka

I think I wore this for St. Patricks day (and I have even older pictures than that, I’m terrible about updating I know), and it got me lots of compliments!

Look at all the gold glitter! Like Charla and the other colors from the Sparkle collection it has that foily micro-glittery finish that’s super pretty and sparkly!

Have a great Sunday! 🙂

Holo Saturday!!

Hello! It’s nice and warm and sunny today so I thought it would be a great day for a holo! 😀

This is one I just got, Color Club Wild At Heart

Gorgeous holographic purple! I couldn’t help taking lots of pictures!

Blue Iguana

China Glaze Blue Iguana from their recent Island Escape collection:

Blue Iguana is a sparkly, foily blue glass fleck with turquoise and purple-ish shimmer, although the purple is more noticeable in the bottle than in the nail. This was pretty sheer, so I did three coats and there is still some vnl. I love the color so I don’t really mind though.

My husband has gone camping until tomorrow night (or Sunday morning), so I’m home alone now and there is a storm going on, it’s supposed to go on until midnight. I hate thunderstorms! I think I’m going to swatch some polishes on my nail wheels and then go curl up with my kitty.

Pink Wednesday!

Today I’m doing my first Pink Wednesday mani.
I chose Essie Your Hut or Mine:

It’s a pink with a bit of coral and golden shimmer. Lovely! The formula was great and it applied in two coats.

And then just for fun I added some polka dots with Essie Absolutely Shore on my ring finger:

It was the first time I tried this so it’s less than perfect and my SV bubbled and smudged one dot :/
I still like it and think it’s a fun mani(although I may end up redoing that finger)! 🙂

With Abandon and Hidden Treasure

This is an old manicure (that’s why my nails are so long!), I found a folder in my laptop with pictures from a while ago that I never uploaded. So I’ll be posting some previous manis.

This is Color Club With Abandon:

This is two coats. It’s a dark brown/black base with brown gold glitter.

And then I added SH Hidden Treasure, and it looks so amazing that I took a lot of pictures!

It flashes gold, orange and green! So gorgeous! 😀

Essie Coat Azure

I didn’t really plan any holiday manicures for the 4th of July, and I knew I wouldn’t have much time today, so I did my nails with Essie Coat Azure, which is blue, so it counts right?
Anyway, Happy 4th!

Essie Coat Azure

I think the picture is a little lighter than in person. I did two coats but one thick coat would probably be fine.
