Groovy Baby!

Wow! I am so proud of this mani it is so bright and shiny just like me ! I was cruising my local Walgreen’s for a hand towel, I use them to get my nail polish off of my nails, when I wandered happen to find myself in the nail polish section. I was looking at the press on nails and saw a pretty set that had tie-dyeish colors in a random patter with glitter on top. I was too tired to paint my nail that night and swore I would try the day and boy am I glad, they came out gorgeous! I might leave these on for a few days as they are so pretty!

Neon Stripes and Dots mani

Still going through all my picture files on my computer and found these cute designs on one of those Asian websites. I like the look I went for, but mad I did not take the time to make sure it looked good. I was in between doing my taxes, eating dinner, and watching Dancing with the Stars.  Spoiler Alert: One of the good dancers on there, Cody Simpson, was kicked off! Complete shock from me and everyone that was watching or was at the show.

Any who here is my creation:

Nail polish from Hawaii- Orange Pop + DWTS inspired mani Whitney’s jacket

One of my co-workers went away to Hawaii for vacation and brought me back a bottle of nail polish. Totally working on my around the World  nail polish collection , so far I have a bottler from Paris, and a  few from South Carolina. I’m not counting Pennsylvania as I live here. This polish did not come with a manufacture name, but did come in a cute bottle with a hibiscus flower engraved  on the top of the lid.

orange pop is a orange red cream base polish. I had to take a image of my left had as I already started the nail art on my right and forgot to take a photo.

Inspiration for this mani came from one of the professional dancers ( Whitney) warm-up jacket.  I should have stuck to the pink as I originally wanted, but I am trying to swatch all my new colors. My lines could have been crisper and I was rushing to finish so I could eat dinner. Will have to try this again in a different way.

Sinful Colors- Mirror Mirror swatch+ Gold Flakie mani

 

Still on my new swatching kick where I am going to wear the colors instead of painting them on fake nails.

Next up is mirror mirror by Sinful Colors is is a deep oxblood red that is gorgeous. I from the pictures I can tell it is going to stain my nails and hope the base coat I put down helps. I decided to stamp over it with gold polish thinking it would be more eye catching. I pulled my Shany plate and decided to go with these cool triangles that I saw. Lo and behold when I stamped it make it look like gold flecks and fell in love!

It was hard to capture the dark red of the polish so this is the best one I was able to get

The funny thing is there is a song I heard on Dancing With the Stars called Mirror Mirror and I have been obsessed with, but can not find it to download it. I think they made it up for the show, but I am determined to find it. Click link to hear song. Try to ignore the awesome dancing of the professionals and here the song    http://dai.ly/x173oy5

Orly-Gravity Bound swatch + mani

I have come to realize that I keep buying all of these polishes and have yet to wear more than half of them. well that is going to change. I am trying to add more structure to my blog, not sure why as I work better with chaos.

I nabbed Orly gravity bound from my local Sally’s Beauty supply mostly because the colors reminded me of a peacock. It has a dark blue shimmery base with purple and white hexagon glitter.

gravity bound swatchI could not just leave the polish as is so just added some gems to the middle of the nail . It’s prettier in person :)

Yikes, Stripes

I finally getting the chance to go through the tons of phones I have saved on my laptops for things I eventually want to try.  The stripes image I have copied from was sent to me so not sure who it belongs to Dollface22772.

I definitely need to work on my stripes and I think it would have turned out better if I just randomly did colors instead of trying to copy exactly like the image. Over all the look on the actual nails is cool. Not sure why it came out so dull in the photos.
