Out The Door - Northern Lights

Hello Lovies! Happy Thursday! Today I am blogging about the lovely Zoya - Jancyn and Out The Door Northern Lights (OTDNL) top coat. I absolutely Love this mani!!!

I used 3 coats of Jancyn, then I did two coats of OTDNL. I could have done away with just one coat of OTDNL but I wanted more of the holo look. :-) What do you think?

Here is Jancyn by herself

Pink Dot Ombre Manicure

Happy Wednesday all! I hope you are all having a great hump day!

For this manicure I was inspired by a friend of mine, Lindsey, over at Neverland Nail Blog. You can see what I was inspired by, by clicking here.

With this mani, I wasn't too happy about it. After I did it I went and re-looked at her post, and realized a few things. 1.) I should have used different pinks that weren't so close. 2.) I should have spaced them out. 3.) I need more practice with my dotting tool.

I used three coats of China Glaze - Shocking Pink (Neon) for my base color. Then I took Zoya - Jolene as my bottom two rows of dots (the ones near my tips). Then I took O-P-I - I'm Indi-A Mood For Love as my middle two rows of dots. Then I took Zoya - Dana as my last rows of dots. I wasn't happy with it so I took two coats of Confetti - Ice Ice Baby to add a little sparkle. Then topped with Seche Vite. What do you think?

And a closer upper :-) You can "kind of" see the different colors....

Sinful Colors - Beauty!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well!

So, I have only used one Sinful Colors before and I LOOOOOVED it. I was looking at swatches of the new Girls and Pearls line and fell in love. SO I went and bought me the whole collection. I then did a manicure in probably my one of my favorites from that collex, which is Sweet Dreams. She is a beauty! I used two coats of Sweet Dreams and then I took my dotting tool and did a line with SC - Firefly, which is also in the collection. What do you think?

See the sparkle?? Isn't she beautiful!?!?!? I love Sinful Colors and Love this collection!

Woah! Can we say nail polish Hiatus!!!

Phew, hello to my lovely followers! My how I have missed you all! I took a long break in doing my close to a month. I just looked and sure enough, the last time I posted was February 3rd, however, I had that posted a week before I had it set to post. If that makes sense. I have been painting the kids bedrooms, etc. Just have been super duper busy!

Anyway, back to blogging about polish! Phew!

Today, is a Thursday and normally my son has Cub Scouts, but it worked out that he didn't today, something with the school having a different event there tonight. My house is cleaned....or should I say WAS cleaned spotless. Those with children, especially with toddlers, know how long a clean house lasts. :-) Any-who, I figured I would FINALLY do my nails. I couldn't decide on a color, so I asked my friends over on one of the facebook groups I'm a part of to pick 3 colors. There were a bunch of different combos posted, so I just grabbed colors. Someone suggested pink, blue, and purple. I went to my stash and looked, I grabbed all Zoya of course, Dana (pink), Yummy (blue), and Perrie (purple). I couldn't decide what I wanted to do so I decided trying my hand at water marbling again. I LOVE to do water marble. However, it's been a while since I've done so, so they didn't turn out like I had planned but I still think they came out neat! :-)

I started off with White on White as my base color on my nail. Then I took Dana, Yummy, and Perrie, in that order, repeated 4 times, and a dropped each in my bowl of water. Then I took a toothpick and made no special design just put lines in it and dipped each finger....this is how they came out. My left hand turned out better of course....I REALLY messed up my right hand. Enjoy the pictures....excuse the ugly cuticles, they have been unattended to for a bit....

 I think it is so weird how my middle nail turned out on this one^^^^^
And for grins and giggles, my right thumb took a tooth pick to it as I was trying to move the polish away from it, and so did my pointer....

I hope you all enjoyed!!!
