Pink Wednesday: Pink Sponging

Today I just have a quick iPhone pic (also I’m posting this from my phone so I hope it works), because I’m not feeling too good and I’m exhausted, I didn’t sleep until 4:30am and woke at 6:30, I just got back from work so all I want to do is go to bed.

I wanted to try sponging with three different pinks in a gradient and this is how it came out:

I used Orly Lollipop for the base, then I sponged OPI Sparrow Me the Drama on top and sponged the tips with Essie Big Spender. It was fun but I need more practice!
Also, what is that black string on my ring finger? I didn’t see it until after I applied top coat so I’m sure it came from my SV brush! It really bothers me but it was too late to redo that nail. Silly SV!

Orly Bailamos

This is Bailamos from last year Orly’s summer collection. It’s a teal turquoise shimmer, so pretty!

And this is what I was wearing when I got my Crackles, so I added a coat of Black Mesh on top, I was in the car and tested it really quick so the only one I liked was my index finger. But I liked the color combination!

Christmas manicures!

Hi!
I have two manis I did for the holidays.

This is Orly Meet Me under the Mistletoe


I was expecting it to be a little more flakey and shimmery from the bottle, but I still love this green! I had this on the last couple of days and got several comliments! 😀

And this is the one I’ll wear this evening and on Christmas day tomorrow
China Glaze Re-fresh Mint

Stamped with bells design from a BM plate in China Glaze Ruby Pumps.

My index finger got smudged but I still have lots of gift wrapping to do so I can’t redo it now and I like how the rest of them turned out!! 😀

Merry Christmas!!!

Orly Space Cadet

This is Space Cadet from the Cosmic FX collection. I only got two polishes from this collection, this one and Galaxy Girl. This pictures were taken after a few days so they show some wear, but I love the duochrome effect, although it’s so difficult to photograph. I love how it flashes so many different colors, like purple, green, gold, pink, so I took lots of pictures!

Close up color in the bottle:

Wow, that was a lot! But it really changed colors everytime I moved my hands, very distracting because I kept staring at it! 😀

Orly Pixy Stix with HT

I was getting ready to do my nails the other day when I got called to work. I had already taken off the polish and had all my stuff out, so I went ahead and painted them anyway because I didn’t want to go out with unpainted nails. I was rushing because I had to leave and didn’t let the coats dry very well, so it didn’t turn out very well. I still liked the color though so I let it go, here it is anyway Orly Pixy Stix:

But the next day all the little flaws I could see up close were starting to bother me. I didn’t want to change it yet so I thought I would add some Hidden Treasure. Because flakies make everything better! 🙂

I was happy enough with it to leave it for another couple of days 😀

I got several new polishes this past week. I received my order in the mail:

First row: Cashmere Cardigan, Green Apple, Mint Mojito, Prisma Gloss Silver, LOL, BFF, TMI, IDK, 2NITE, L8R G8R, TTYL, Rated Holographic
Second row: Pixy Stix, Lollipop, Gumdrop, Cotton Candy, Snowcone, Bailamos, 2030, Millennium, Strawberry Fields
Third row is some drugstore polishes I just got: Milani Hi-Res, Metal Gear, Melt With U, WnW Kaleidoscope, Confetti Ice Ice Baby, LA Colors (forgot the name and it’s not in the bottle).
And it’s not nail polish but I got my lipgloss and pigments from Urban Decay the same day so I included it in the picture.

And I also got a Helmer a couple of weeks ago:

I was so proud when I put it together on my own(except for the wheels, my dad did that!), and didn’t break any nails. I was sure I was going to!
I plan on covering it with stickers and magnets 😀

Here is my nail polish drawer:

All my polishes fit in one drawer (I haven’t added the new ones I just got though), so I’m also using it for all my other makeup stuff. I love it, it’s so cute! 😀
