Nail mail!!

20130410-224340.jpg

Soooooo excited!! This contoured four of my "firsts". My first OPI DS, ├ętude, Jade and A England. Can't wait to try them all!!!!

Butter London's Scallywag

20130410-223845.jpg

I am completely head over heels in love with this color!! It's sooo beautiful. It is a clear glitter base that provides full coverage. It sparkles in the light!! It does dry to a semi matte as you can see in the left hand side photos or you can add two coats of seche shown in the right for extra gloss. It was easy and smooth to put on and just WOW! I used a coat of nail tek under and then Essie feed me. I'm so into this color and it will be one of my go to polishes. Now I'm in search of the rest of the 2012 holiday collection!!

China Glaze Holographic Not in this Galaxy

20130410-223634.jpg

This is yet another from the new line China Glaze put out. These photos are in direct sunlight and as you can see there is very very little holo effect. Seems they were a bit stingy with that!! The color is ok nothing about this particularly wows me like strap on your moon boots and some of the others did. Of course as a holo I didn't use a base or top coat. At least not till I get my NFu oh aqua base

Theresa's Julep Shenae

20130410-223328.jpg

Here is a julep Shenae polish from the it girl line. It's a light light pastel green and looks great!! She did say the polish was hard to put on that it was either too thick then too thin which is the same problem I had. She wore Sally Hansen double duty as a base and the top is no chip by Sally. I love the color but hate the application!!

China Glaze Flying Dragon

20130408-213406.jpg

Ok ladies once again another color I bought that I found out has a different version which is the darker purple so now I'm on a hunt for that along with my good buddy Ci. But this is a beautiful polish. Because its meant to be a neon it does dry semi matte. It's somewhat of a magenta with blue purple glitter which you can see more in the flash pic. I put on one coat of nail tek Essie grow fast and seche base. It took two coats of seche top to get it shiny and I may add another. But I love this polish for the beautiful color. As always with china glaze application was a breeze.

OPI My Private Jet

20130407-172208.jpg

Soooo as many people know there are tons of versions of this floating around. Honestly I'm still not 100 percent sure which one I have. It obviously has holo so maybe the scattered holo one? What do you think? Regardless it's beautiful and I love love the color. I bought it for that alone before I heard all the stories behind it. Either way super pretty. This is two coats over nail tek and Essie first base base coat. I do have a HTF coming I can't wait to post here in a week or two. This polish bug bit the crap out of me!!!

Holy holo China Glaze Take A Trek

20130406-175245.jpg

This is from China Glazes new holographic line. I don't have any aqua base coat yet so I did as I do with my Layla holos and buffed my nails to a shine. This is no base coat with three thin coats of take a trek. I finally got pics in the sun so you can actually see the awesome holo effect!! I have to admit holos are my fav and I place that bland on Tami. I'm missing five colors to this line but I will get them you just wait!! Lol

My cousin Theresa's Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Pumping Iron

20130406-174840.jpg

Today my cousin did the Sally Hansen hard as nails pumping iron. It's an awesome silver shade and looks like the foil or chrome type polish to me. She used Sally Hansen double duty base and Sally Hansen insta-dry top coat. She has had really great experience with these base and top coats so I think I need to try!! Once again her long nails make me jelly and I love her hand modeling!!!!

Butter London frilly knickers over China Glaze defiantly daring

20130404-235549.jpg

I layered this butter London frilly knickers on top. It gives it a great little kick of glitter and makes it sparkle even more in the light. We all know bunny loves sparkles!!

China Glaze Deviantly Daring

20130404-235343.jpg

This is a pretty pretty green sometimes dark teal color. Something of a duo chrome at least to me. This is two coats and goes on like a dream. I love CG. This has nail tek xtra underneath which I'm trying out to strengthen and grow my nails.

American museum of natural history

20130403-222848.jpg

Yesterday on Kay's day off we used our yearly membership we got to the museum. Besides the fact that I got us lost by taking the wrong train and ending up on the wrong side of Central Park it was great!! We decided to each choose an exhibit for the day since we have all year to make our way through it. Kay chose the dinosaurs I wanted to see the special whale exhibit but I forgot to get advance tickets so I saw the ocean life one. It was a bit crowded but we had a great time and can't wait to go back. Especially when it's warm and we can picnic in Central Park then go wonder around. It also has an amazing iPhone app that you can use for different tours like the night at the museum tour. Tons o fun!!

20130403-222700.jpg

A Fuxzy Bedazzled Mani Part 2

20130403-222333.jpg

This is another mani picked out by Fuxzy. I think she has a good eye for polish combos!! This is L.A. Girls Dazzling Pink topped with Rainbow Honey Yoshimi. I love the pink black and white look to this with the square black and white glitters!! So very cute!! I love it!!

L.A. Girl Dazzling Pink

20130403-222108.jpg

This is the first part of my mani Fuxzy picked out but I figured I'd post the base first. As you can see its super duper shiny and pretty. I am in love with this collection and must get the others soon!! This is a cost of Essie first base coat with two costs of dazzling pink. Easy to apply and oh so sparkly!!!

Trying Julep Again...

20130401-231447.jpg

Ok so someone told me that the top came off the julep bottles. Yes I admit I had no clue!! Lol and they said that might help with applying it so I gave it another whirl. This is two base coats of seche clear base with two coats of julep Lena and then on the pinky nail two coats of julep Abbie. I applied one coat of seche fast dry on top. The application was a bit easier and I tried to put as thin of coats as possible but it still stemmed clumpy to me. Either the coat went on too thin it didn't even make a full line or too thick. Maybe it's just me I'm not sure but it not my favorite by far. Also the colors seem so bright and popping and they don't really seem that way on the nail. This is honestly a pass if your thinking about buying the collection for the amazing colors. Overall, I'm just disappointed. :(
