ASBMF #6 and 7 - Ombré and Glitter Tips

Hello fellow polish lovers! I have for you two more manis from the April Showers Bring May Flowers challenge!!

The first mani you'll see is day 6, ombré! For this I wasn't sure whether to do a gradient ombré or to paint my nails dark to light (kwim?) so I decided to do both! I forget color names but when I get them I'll let ya know!!

The second mani is day 7, glitter tips! I decided to use Deborah Lippmann's Candy Shop since I had yet to actually try the color! Ok I don't remember the base color. I want to say it was GOSH Bubble Gum, but I'm just not sure! I'll have to look!

Ok, so now it's picture time. They are pretty self explanatory. The first (top) pic is of my day 6 ombré and the second (bottom) is day 7 glitter tips.

ASBMF #4 and 5: April Showers and a Rainbow

WOW!! Ok so it's been a little bit since I have posted a Spring Challenge mani hasn't it?! Well I have not one but TWO for you today! The first mani is "April Showers," but before you all look at the picture, let me explain it. The colors I used were Essence Twins Romeo, Sinful Colors Blue By You,and Nabi Silver Glitter. The Essence represents overcast skies, the SC represents blue skies and the Nabi is rain.

Now I did both overcast and blue because of ASBMF #5: A Rainbow After the Rain! The color I used for that is Nfu-Oh 63! It's a gorgeous light pink holo!! I am in love with it!!

Look at that holo-y goodness!!! Beautiful color, right?!

Well that is all for today! My kids are having a bad day so I need to get them down for a nap. Neither (especially my son) didn't sleep well last night. Here's to a good nap...for mommy's sake! Thanks for reading!

Catching Up

Ok do I am typing this on my phone as I am laying down in bed. I am about to nap! It's been a heck of a day so far! My kids don't want to listen, I need to go grocery shopping, I need to clean the house and I have to do it with 2 grouchy kids! UGH! Ok I am done lol. On to the mani!

Today I have for you OPI Just Spotted the Lizard from the new 2012 Spiderman collection! It's an exact dupe of Chanel Peridot and let me tell you, it's GORGEOUS!!! It went on very well despite some brush strokes, but I've yet to come across a polish like this and not get at least one nail with brush strokes! It doesn't bother me though! I have a comparison page saved on my desktop that I am going to add but I won't be able to get it till later. Ok, here we go! P.S. This polish does not make my hands look like a lobster. It was bad lighting!

EDIT (05/10/2012): Here is the comparison. Sarah over at Pinch of Pretty did a great job at the comparison!
