Alligator Skin

I am all over this Pure Ice First Time!! I love this green color, it's absolutely gorgeous! This is one coat of First Time with e.l.f. Matte Finisher top coat and then OPI Black Shatter over it! I love this look :)

I like how it cracked on my thumb, forefinger and middle finger the best. I like the thinner cracks. I used a thinner coat on those fingers. On my ring & pinky I used a thicker coats and it had larger cracks. It's pretty awesome though! Looks like alligator skin

Pink Wednesday & ABC's !

My first pink wednesday! This is two coats of Sinful Colors - Cream Pink. Love it!

A. Age:
I am twenty years old.

B. Bed Size:
Queen, of course ;) You'd be surprised how much room I can take up with my little body!

C. Chore you hate:
Doing laundry! It takes foreverrrrrrrrr. I hate waiting!

D. Day:
Thursdays because that's my day off work (along with Sunday & every other Saturday) and I always go up to see my best friend!

E. Essential start to your day:
Something to drink! I am always so thirsty when I wake up. I usually drink coffee, tea or fruit juice, orange juice is my favorite ;)

F. Favourite Colour
Yellow, is that weird? Everyone tells me that's weird. I also love pink and purple.

G. Gold or Silver
Silver, hands down. Silver is just my favorite. I loveeeee gold make up/eyeshadow, but not gold jewelry!

H. Height
5'1" yes I am very short. People like to tell me "OMG, you're the first person I've met that is shorter than me!" when they first meet me. >_>

I. Instruments:
HAHAHAHAHA, nooooo. I am not musically talented. I can play super easy stuff on the piano, I wish I was better because I love piano but it hurts my wrist. I'd also likes to learn to play violin.

J. Job title:
I work in the office at a Nissan & Hyundai dealership.

K. Kids:
No! I know there are tons and tons of young moms out there & theres nothing wrong with that but that is NOT for me! I do want children later in life though... maybe in ten years when I'm thirty! haha

I've been to the hospitals for many surgeries but none of them required me to stay overnight!

P. Pet Peeve:
A few of my biggest: when people don't shut my bedroom door when they leave ( I HATE OPEN DOORS!) and at work- I answer the phones- people will call and say "Um you called me?" No, no I did not. I do not make any phone calls whatsoever (except to my mom sometimes) I just answer the phone. Or when people say "uhhhhhhhhh who is this?" Uhhhhh you called ME, shouldn't you know who you are calling!? GAAAHHHH.

Righty :)

Victoria's Secret is the best. Definitely.

Sand Trapez

See! I told you I can't keep the same nail polish on for very long!! Yesterday I bought my first Essie nail polish! I have never used Essie before and I was a little skeptical about paying eight bucks for nail polish sold at CVS. This polish was fifty percent off and I have been looking for a good nude color so I couldn't pass on buying it. This is Essie - Sand Trapez :

and as you can see, I added some white flower nail stickers

I will DEFINITELY be buying more Essie polish! The application was absolutely amazing! This is two coats. It went on soooooooo smoothly and perfectly! I love it! And honestly, it's exactly what I wanted. I am so happy! :)

Army green chrome w/ cute flowers

Alright, so I'm sure it's no secret (especially to my close friends) that I cannot keep one color or design on for more than like... two or three days haha. However, I got a fabulous chrome army green color last night so I had to try a design with it :P Hope you enjoy!

Pure Ice "First Time" with SH Xtreme Wear "White Out" and Pure Ice "Black Rage"

I ordered some dotting tools off of Ebay last week and they arrived in the mail yesterday, so I had to try them out as well! I have never used dotting tools before (can you tell? haha) but they are super easy to use! :)

Enjoy what's left of your weekend!

Justin Bieber Nail Art!

Hello everyone!! I hope you are all having a good weekend so far! :) After I got off work yesterday I went to go see one of my best friends and she had several bottles of polish waiting for me! She enables my addiction ;) hehe. Two of the bottles were Nicole by OPI from the JB collection (I want all of them!) They were Step 2 The Beat of My Heart and One Less Lonely Glitter! Ahhh she knows me too well, those were my two favorites :)

All nails two coats of Jesse's Girl - Spring Break. Thumb & ring finger topped with One Less Lonely Glitter. Forefinger, middle finger & pinky finger has two hearts from Step 2 the Beat of my Heart.

Andddd here's a view of the bottles :)

I'm so in love with this! Perfect weekend manicure :) <3 Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

WnW Swatches

Hello everyone!

Okay so here are the swatches from the Summer Nail Pail I blogged about on Sunday. I was in a hurry because I was running late for a lunch date with my best friend. So these are suuuuuuper sloppy! However, they are all pretty true to color so that's why I am posting them! Enjoy :)

Everybody Loves Redmond - 2 Coats

FuschiaRama - 3 Coats

How I Met Your Magenta - 3 Coats
HORRIBLE application! The formula is waaay too thick and goopy. It was a nightmare using this polish! But I really like the color! :)

Sage in the City - 1 or 2 Coats
Possibly my favorite of this collection!

Saved by the Blue - 2 Coats

Teal or No Teal - 2 Coats

The Wonder Yellows - 2 coats

TGIF, have a great weekend everyone!

I'm so proud :)

Happy Thursday! It's almost the weekend :) This is actually a few weeks old... my friend got her nails done professionally but never went for a fill-in, so her acrylic grew out for about four-ish weeks. It just so happens that I bought everything I need to do my own acrylic nails for my birthday. I did my acrylics but never took a picture! They were really thick, but not bad looking for my first time (and not having a nail drill to smooth everything!) I was so proud! Anyway, so I told her I would fill them in and paint them and so on... so here is the end result!

You can see that they are not completely smooth, but whatever! I did the purple tips (wet n wild - buffy the violet slayer) and the glitter (kiss nail art glitter) free hand :) SO proud of myself! haha! And then on her ring finger, I used a small white and silver butterfly sticker. I think they turned out GREAT for me having basically no practice or training lol 

Have a great day!

Wet N' Wild.. I love finding good deals!

Hello everyone!

So I was at CVS checking out the new Mermaid's Cove collection of Wet N Wild and I stumbled across this awesome little gift set that they had! Its a little summer nail pail that contains seven of the fastdry polishes, toe separators, a nail file, and a little nail art kit with some stencils and a bottle of white nail art polish. And it was only $9.99! Which is awesome because the polish alone would have cost about $14. So here's a picture of it!

The package (so cute!)

Top view

The polishes (from L to R)
The Wonder Yellows
Sage in the City
Teal or No teal
Saved by the Blue
How I Met Your Magenta

These are the other goodies that came in the package :)

I absolutely LOVE these! I had some of the other Fastdry polishes and I really liked them :) I also picked up a few of the new colors. I got Waves of Enchantment, Sea Witch, Diving for Pearls &Atlantis. In my next post I will swatch all of these for you guys! :) Hope you all had a great weekend!

My first scotch tape mani!

Good afternoon :) So since I'm finished with all of my exams I had time to play around with my nails today! YAY! I even had time to clean my room finally haha. So I decided to try doing a scotch tape mani :)

Ahhhhh I love it! :D 
For this mani I used and old NYC nail polish.. it doesn't have a name but the number is 108A? Idk, it's one of my favorite pinks :X
And the brown in Sinful Colors - Nirvana.
The flower on my ring finger is also Nirvana stamped with BM03 <3

Hope you all have a fabulous Monday and good luck to everyone who still have exams!

Kiss My Art!

Hello ladies :) Okay so I meant to post this earlier, but here was my mani this week! I didn't have my camera at the time so prepare for super crappy phone-cam pictures! ANYWAY, This is SH- Blue Me Away! with FP- Kiss My Art over top :) I absolutely LOVE this combo, but the SH polish stains your nails blue pretty badly!

This is an EXTREMELY sparkly polish and I hate that I couldn't really capture that. In fact, the only reason I am even bothering to post this is because the picture is very true to color :) I will def be doing this mani again soon and I will add better picture!  

I hope everyone had a great weekend :)

Gold Kiss

Hey ladies! I hope you all had a good start to the week! This week is going to be so insane for me.... it's exam week! I have four papers due by Friday, luckily the are all short and will be super easy! ANYWAAAAY, here's a design I did and I think it turned out awesome! :) I'm starting to get a hang of this stamping thing!

Cool, huh!? I used a Sinful Colors base coat and then two coats of Finger Paints "Key to my Art" stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in "Speedy Sunburst" with BM02. That is easily my favorite bundle monster plate!!
