Nails Of The Day (Long Overdue)

Good afternoon ladies, today I just have a short NOTD. If you follow me on Facebook then you can probably already seen these. If you have then you know that these were done late at night and I couldn't (still cant for that matter) get a good picture of them. But anyway, this is what I have for you:

This is Sally Hansen's No Hard Feelings. IRL it is slightly more dusty. Not really what I was hoping for but still pretty none the less.

*Also I'm sorry for being so absent the past week or so. But I'm sure you all know there is never enough hours in the day to get everything done!

Fun with Zoya Wednesday and Zuza!

Good evening ladies, I hope you all are enjoying your day. It's raining here, so that's a bummer :(

Last night I was having trouble deciding what to do for my mani today so I posted my choices on facebook and asked for suggestions. Polished by Maddie suggested Wednesday and Zuza, thus solving my problem! I decided to do french tips since I haven't had them in a while. I'm sure you've had enough of my blabbering, so on to the pictures:

NOTD: Fiancée Edition

Hello ladies, today I have a NOTD fiancée edition:

I used Zoya Mira and Zoya Heidi as the accent color

Heidi IS NOT color accurate
I liked these two colors together IRL. I think what we have learned from this is that I can't paint other peoples nails lol. Heidi went on great and was opaque in two coats, but Mira was runny. If this had been my first experience with Zoya I don't know that I would go back. Well, that's it! Enjoy the rest of your day :)

Tattoo Nail Art

Good early morning ladies, once again I can't sleep, so I decided to play around with some nail art.

A few months ago cutepolish posted a video on youtube about how to do tattoo nails. I was dying to try it and just recently found some temporary tattoos that I liked. So, tonight my fiancee has wonderfully allowed me to practice on her nails (she will do this from time to time).

What I love most is the simplicity: just a white base coat, apply the tattoo as you would on your skin, then seal with a topcoat! I also tried it with a colored base coat and....well lets just say it was a fail :(

Although mine didn't work out, I can't wait to try this again. What do you think? Is this something that you'll try? Leave me a comment and let me know :)

Try It On Tuesday

Good evening ladies, I trust you all had a good day? I just thought that I would put up a quick post while my cookies were in the oven. I've been seeing all these wonderful ladies doing the "Try it on Tuesday", and thought I would try it too. I have a set of LA Colors that I got about a month ago and have just been sitting on my shelf, so I decided to grab one of those.
please excuse the topcoat in front
 Unfortunately , none of these seem to have a name :(, so we're gonna call it Metallic Blue:

So there you have it. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. Lately I've been into blues, but this one just doesn't feel right to me. I think it may be that in some lights it looks green, but at less then a dollar per bottle I'm not complaining.

Do you have any bottles that you haven't gotten around to using yet? Or are you like I normally am, get home, strip off your current mani, and use your new baby? Let me know in the comments down below or post your pics on my facebook wall if you decide to try one out.

Pure Ice Vinyl Remix

Good evening ladies, I hope everyone had a wonderful time celebrating all the fathers in their lives. I am very excited about the post today. This is the first product that was sent to me by a company to review. I was shocked because my blog is so new and has such few followers. But I think that it's nice of them to give new bloggers a chance to review their products as well. Ok ok, I know, enough ranting, you're ready for the pictures. lol

NOTD: Whimsical Kristen

Good evening ladies, I hope you all had a wonderful day.

Usually when I get a copious credit I already know what I'm gonna use it for because I've been late night stalking the sight for a couple of days. But Monday when the do it yourself lady  posted the link for a credit I had no idea what to get.

Facebook Page

Hello ladies, I hope everyone had a wonderful day.
 Well, I have finally done it! I broke down and made a Facebook page for the blog. I'm still very self-conscious about people seeing my nails. I'm not very good at getting the cuticle line straight and I always seem to mess it up on at least one finger. It's very intimidating seeing all these wonderful blogs and or pages with such great  photos. And, my writing skills suck (lol). But, I figure if people don't like my blog, then they don't have to come back right? Plus, maybe this will help me get over it. So, it's out there now and we'll see how it goes.

PS: I would like to thank my two followers who cared enough to stick around. You girls mean a lot to me and will always have a special place in my heart <3 :)

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Have a question? Or just something you wanna say? Leave me a comment, I'd love to hear from you!

Zoya Sooki

Hello everybody! I hope you've had a wonderful Sunday.
 If you're a fan of HBO's True Blood then you are well aware that today is the season 5 premire. In honor of this I decided to wear Zoya Sooki ( I know not spelled the same). This is another polish that I bought on copious for a penny. I LOVE copious!

Mint Sorbet

Hello guys, how's your day going?
 I tried to hold off on painting my nails until my new polishes got here, but there was one bottle that just kept calling my name, Sally Hansen's Mint Sorbet. I got this a couple of months ago for my birthday from my finacee, after wanting it for months!

Nail Update

Ok guys, so it's day 5 now, or 6 depending on if you wanna count the day I did the mani, and I must say that I'm extremely happy with how it is holding up. I've had absolutely NO CHIPPING! Most of my polishes chip by about day 3 just cause I'm so rough on my nails. I was dishes what seems like constantly (lol) and I'm always drumming my fingers on something, and I do alot of typing. And I fell that I should mention that I haven't re-applied the top coat every other day like you're supposed to, cause really, who has the time? I am very pleased with Zoya's Dove, but I have come to expect nothing less from the Zoya brand.

kind of shaded light

           Ok, so that's the wonderful Zoya Dove after 5 days of wear. I've got two more Zoya's on their way ( that I got on copious for a penny) so I'm gonna try to hold off on changing polish until they get here. I have no doubt that this polish will last until they get here.

Got a question or just something you wanna say? Leave me a comment, I'd love to hear from you! :)
