My helpers last night while I was doing my nails.

If you look closely, you can see Fat Meats is getting a light brown circle around her left eye :)

I CANNOT STOP PLAYING THIS SONG! Why isn't Jessie J a huge star right now?? Just once I wish I could sing like this :)


This is another look with the new LA Splash loose glitters. I wanted to show another way of using the glitter for a more bold look. This time instead of just sprinkling on the glitter with a paint brush I dipped my nails in. First I painted a base coat of Ulta - Last Fling Before the Ring and let it dry. Then I applied clear coat only to the places I wanted the glitter to stick and dipped each nail in.

These glitters are my new favorite nail toy :)

Ok, how many colors does that glitter have? I see red, orange, green, yellow, blue, silver . . . hot to trot sister!! I love this mani :) It is going down as one of my favorites! I have really been drawn to these dark teal blue colors recently.

For the base I did two coats of OPI Ski Teal We Drop, then I dusted on loose LA Splash glitter in Onyx (This glitter is awesome!! Going to do a post on these glitters soon!) and then lastly I stamped a butterfly in white. I really loved the white I used to stamp with, it has a sort of see-through quality that I think works better than if I would have used a bright white bold stamp.



I LOVE this color, can you tell?? At first glance it appears to be a standard dark dusty blue, but on closer inspection - a smattering of underlying brilliant blue shimmer!! The name Underwater is so fitting for this, which makes my love for this polish double!!

*I had read that there are two polishes available from Essence with this name, the other is more of an electric blue and looks nothing like this polish.

FINALLY!!! I have had this collection for a few weeks and I am just now getting around to showing it to you all. I'm sure you have seen these already, but so far this collection is so awesome it is worth taking another look at.

The first set of pictures were taken with no flash. The second set are shown with flash.

This color didn't look good on me at all. I think it was just too close to my actual skin color. I think this would look great on darker skin tones. Of the 6 colors I'm showing you today this was the only one that fell flat with me. The shimmer does help this color out though.

Very cool & trendy taupe, purple, gray color. This applied really nice. Some shimmer would have really knocked this up a notch for me though.

This was one of my favorites! I love this dusty orange color, that is still bright enough to wear in the summer. Super gorgeous! Can't say enough about how much I love this!

I didn't realize I got a little sloppy with this one until I looked at these pics so I apologize for that. This was a really cool blue! It's a pretty unique shade and I'm not sure if I have anything that is close to this color.

Loving everything about this color!!!! This is my DREAM red! This color is so pretty. It is a bright cherry red and with a name like Hey Sailor - what's not to love?

I was excited about this color. This one went on pretty sheer though compared to all the others which have been pretty opaque so far. But three coats and it was good to go. Man I wish the shimmer would have been just a wee bit more prominent in this! Still a really pretty gray - loving it too!
