SUGARY PINK FEATHERS

I bet y'all thought I abandoned you again, lol! Nope, I'm still hanging with it. Of course right when I decide to make a come back I have something HUGE happen in my life. So, I'm doing a little bit of juggling that right now and trying to get back into the swing of blogging - so bear with me girls ;)

I really loved this soft pink look of this mani I did! The colors I picked worked really well together and I kept this on for several days. For the base I used Nubar Strawberry from their Jelly beans collection. I LOVE the finish of this polish, it has a slight jelly finish to it, I think it really resembles the look of a jelly bean. Then I applied a coat of Misa Candy Girl, a shimmery sugary pink glitter top coat. I then stamped using China Glaze Joy. Wouldn't you know I forgot what stamping plate I used! I'm pretty sure it is a bundle monster one though.

IT WAS ALL A DREAM

I'm not saying Im "back" back, but I'm gonna give it a shot. I know I disappeared, for almost a year!! And those who follow me on facebook should know some of the reasons why I left. But to put it in the simplest terms - all the joy of blogging was gone and it turned into all work and no play.

Sooooo, I'm gonna give this a go again but under MY terms. I really wanna get back to what made me want to start blogging in the first place - a love of painting my nails and doing nail art. I think I got a little too wrapped up in product reviews and having to post all the new collections and all the new stuff first, and honestly that isn't what motivates me, nail art and painting my nails is what does. I'm not saying I won't do any reviews in the future, but they will be few and far between or done on a collection that I just really love!

These pictures were of a mani I did last night. I couldn't quite capture it with my phone so I busted out my real camera and it just brought back some good old blogging memories. So here we go ladies!!

I used Nubar Swiss Chocolate. For the accent nails I used a bright pink base color and then covered those babies in LA Splash loose glitter.

ALIEN EYES

Alien Eyes is what Little called this mani when I showed it to him - so that's the name I'm going with.

I painted a white base coat down, then used Color Club's gold crackle polish. Then I added the "alien eye" using black iron on nailheads I found at Michael's.

FYI - No I didn't "iron on" the nail heads, I know someone's gonna ask. I just used topcoat to make them stick.

MILANI ONE COAT GLITTER - PURPLE GLEAM

Ahhh, the crowning jewel of the swatches I have shown you. I fell deeply in love with this color. This color is nothing short of AMAZING! I need the rest of the glitter from this collection - I just decided! While it wasn't quite a one coater - once coat did apply way better than most glitters. What makes this color so awesome is the black that is in this. Even after looking at these close up pictures I'm still not certain if this is in a black base or has very small micro black glitter in it. Either way - get this!

This dries to a cool matte look - of course I want my glittah to shine, but I took a picture of this without top coat so you could see the cool matte effect of this one. It is at the very bottom of this post.

One other VERY awesome thing about this polish was that it removed really well too. The glitter is so small that it didn't want to stick to my nails and removed much better.








MILANI JEWEL FX - GEMS

Ya'll KNOW I liked this one - glittah is my thing! Gems is VERY similar to Lippmann's Happy Birthday. They are almost dupes, but not quite. The glitter colors are a little different and the shape of some of the glitter is different. However, with out a close up photo and side by side comparison, you can't really tell the difference. Shown is 2 coats - and you can see how well this covered.







MILANI NEON - FRESH TEAL

First off, as I'm sure you can tell from the pictures, the bottles are painted. That is why my nails color looks different. I personally don't like painted bottles, I like to see exactly the color that is inside the bottle for that reason alone, the colors aren't exact.

That being said, I do like the color Fresh Teal. This applied very nice with only 2 coats. Like most neons, it dried to a matte finish. The pictures shown are with top coat.
