OMG!!!!

Today I have an incredible mani!! Well I am posting it today but the mani was from a few days ago. I didn't do any nail art or anything like that. I just did a single color but it has MANY colors in the formula! I bring you China Glaze OMG! This polish was easy to apply. I didn't notice getting any bald spots (except where my nail "humps" are, but I filed those away and re did the polish) and it was opaque in 2 coats! I probably could have gone 3 but I chose not to! So without further ado, here is the fabulous CG OMG!!!


Oh my look at that holo-y goodness! I think I am going to challenge myself to 31 days of holo's starting in May. I am currently in a challenge right now ever though I haven't done most of it. I have been having a hard month and have only have the motivation and energy to do simple 1 color mani's, BUT I am starting to want to do more again so YAY!!

I think what helped motivate me is that I don't want to bore you all for one! Two, my husband helped me move my nail stuff to next to my computer! SoI cleaned off my computer desk (which was a BIG mess) and now I have even MORE room to do my nails!! I have been so happy with it that I have skipped on my nightly routine of a relaxing spa bath just to sit at my computer desk, watch Netflix and paint my nails!! I love it!

Keep your eyes open for more posts coming soon!!

P.S. Three (3) more followers till another giveaway!! Help me out followers!!!

Monday Mani Challenge!!

Ok peeps! Yes, I said peeps what of it? Today I have for you my Monday mani challenge. The Facebook group that I am in (Polish-Aholics Anonymous) has a challenge every Monday. I think this is the first one I have done! The theme is food!

Well I asked my 4 year old daughter what type of food mommy should paint on her nails. My husband said strawberries but my daughter didn't like that idea. I suggested cupcakes and she said, while rubbing her tummy "Oo YUM!" lol. So we chose cupcakes!

I do not plan on listing all the polishes used because I used 15, yes FIFTEEN polishes to make this mani possible!! It also took about 2-3 hours lol! The brands I used are OPI, China Glaze, Sally Hansen, Kiss and Princessa. It was fun and I got to watch a cute movie with my kids! Veggie Tales - The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything. We like that movie.

Anyway, here are the pics! I will resize them when I get to my desktop in the am. Thanks for looking and please refrain from licking your screens. Thank you! :-)

Patience...

Hello my wonderful followers!!! I am so sorry I have been MIA! I was really sick with bronchitis and an ear infection and both my kids were sick with fevers of 102.5+ and then my eldest sister flew out here from North Carolina with her kids to surprise us and so I took an unexpected trip to my parents last weekend! Once I got back I had to play catch up with swaps and sells etc... I FINALLY have time to post on my blog!!

I have a couple of posts I want to do but I need you all to have patience with me. I am still overwhelmed with some things here. My husband leaves for 3 weeks for work soon, and I will be taking another trip to my parents for Easter so I have lots to do before then! Check back the next couple days for some new posts ok!

Thanks for being wonderful followers!!

Spring Challenge Day 11 - Pastel Patchwork

Hello wonderful followers!! This will be short and sweet. I gotta get my kids in the bath hehe!

I have a new spring mani for ya!! Pastel patchwork is my first patchwork mani. I played a bit and I like how it turned out! I'm sorry I am few days late on it but I got it up right?! LOL

I used Orly Fresh, Snowcone, Lollipop, Cotton Candy and I also used OPI Planks A Lot and Sparrow Me the Drama. I used black acrylic paint for the patchwork.


How'd I do for my first time?!

Thank you for looking and have a wonderful weekend!!

International Festival

I have for you a very unique (in my opinion) mani today! Let me explain why my mani is the way it is.

My daughters school is having an International Festival today (Friday, March 1, 2012) and what happens, to my understanding, is that each class has a country they "do" things for. Such as pictures, decoration, food etc... There are three classes, therefore three countries. Germany, Brazil, and India! My daughters class got India.

So after things were done, each class set up their things as a museum. The kids were able to go to the other classes to look at their museums. Monday was Germany, Tuesday was Brazil and Wednesday was India. So now what happens is that there is a performance done by the kids. Singing and dancing and so on.

So what I did was googled the flags for each of those countries and did the nail art! The picture on the left is upside down on purpose. That was the only way to capture the flags in their correct state hehe. That was a nail art "my bad". Anywho, my left ring finger is the flag of Germany, my index is Brazil and my right ring is India! Now I did the rest of my nails in that purple/blue because my daughter is wearing a deep purple costume (India type clothing) and I wanted to match. So without further ado (finally right lol) here is the picture! I hope I did ok on the flags! Enjoy!


P.S. I couldn't do the writing or the stars properly on the Brazil flag because it was too small. Also the globe is blue it just dried really dark. Dang acrylic paint lol. Sorry Brazilians :-(
