It's been forever.......

It has truly been forever since I posted,but I have been taking pics and have a mega post of colors coming up about 4 to be exact...

My first color is Blue Bombshell by Confetti

Love the way it looks in the bottle,but I had to use 4 coats to get it to look like that on my nails. The polish is sooooooooooooo thin. Matter of fact,I find that to be the case with most of my Confetti polishes.

Next up...

A combo I like to call Banana Pop

I used Sinful Colors Innocent for the ring finger and Spoiled Distant Memory for the rest of my fingers. Innocent is a little more green than the photo shows and it stains *yikes* So make sure you use your basecoat! I love this combo though!

And next up a combo I call Bling bling lol

I used Spoiled "Daddy's Credit Card" and topped it with Wet N Wild's Kaleidoscope. I LOVE this!! The way the glitter looks in the sun is amazing!

And last but not least.....

A gradient that I didn't come up with a name for  surprisingly :)

I used my all time FAVORITE polish ever "Tip My Waitress" by Spoiled, Sinful Colors "Dream On" and "Your Fly's Down" also by Spoiled! Love the way it turned out,but the gradient is truly a struggle to do on my dominant hand but i'm working on it!

Well that's it for now!!!!

Catching up!

I haven't blogged in a while so I think I will get caught up all in this one post!

My first color is Wet N Wild's Gray's Anatomy

A duochrome  that changes from purple to green depending on the light. I also saw a little bit of silver in it as well. It's not pretty(to me) in the bottle,but I loved it on my nails. I've been trying to try colors that I'd  pass up. I'm glad I picked this one up!

Next up is Ahoy! by China Glaze.  It's somewhere between a pink & red shade with gold glitter in it. . On the nails it is a deep red/kinda raspberry tone. I used about two coats.  I didn't really care for it :(

Now for my favorite out of these three, Love Nails by Sinful Colors. A beautiful turquoise blue with a metallic like finish. LOVE this one!

Another gradient....

From left to right Grecian Sun,You're Fly's Down,Why Not,Distant Memory, Daddy's Credit Card and the glitter is called Use Protection. The names in this combo is hilarious! I used the silver as my base.

This gradient was inspired by the tank top I had on the other day,which is pictured above. Reminds me of the beautiful waters of the Caribbean. I used five different colors to get this look and then I decided to add the glitter.

Trying something new

I haven't written a new post in forever :(  I actually have to new looks to post (Yay)! I have been trying to get colors that I usually wouldn't buy,like browns and golds.  So, I decided I would try I'm Ba-roque by Spoiled. It's a beautiful light brown color with very tiny silver glitter specks in it.

Although,I don't really think it looks great with my skin tone,the color is gorgeous!

Gradient Time!!

I did my first gradient last night!  Yay,go me!! I followed YouTube tutorial by Laynie from Layniesfingers. I love it!

Here is the cast of colors I used
Left to right
Spoiled Your Fly's Down, Kleancolors Green Grass, Spoiled Daddy's Credit Card and Sally Hansen HD Lite. The clear is Seche Vite of course
I Love it!  I used the Silver as a base coat which gave it a metallic spray painted on look

This was taken before cleanup.

I love how easy this was and it was really quick. I cannot wait to do this with other colors. Matter of fact when I redo my nails tomorrow,I will be doing another gradient!

Happy Easter everyone!

I love dresses

So look at the cute dress I just ordered from Body Central
Isn't it cute!! It's weird for me to buy anything other then accessories from Body Central. The clothes are cute,but i never could fit them.  I recently lost 20 pounds and I am in love with how I look in dresses now! The sizes there run really small, so I HOPE I can fit this!! I ordered this today and it shipped today! Excellent!

My first tape mini........

So I decided to try a tape mani and boy was it tedious :/  I  like how it came out,although most of my lines are not straight. This time around my right hand actually looks better than my left! That's because by the time I got to my non dominate hand,I had some things figured out lol .

1. Have the tape ready already! Yeah duh,but at first I was not doing that

2.leave the tape on for almost a minute then carefully pull it off. The longer I left the tape on,the sharper my lines got.

3. On the flip side,don't leave the tape on too long. If you do,you will get little strings of polish coming off with the tape :(

So here is my first tape mani! Not great, but not to bad.

All the colors were from Sinful Colors. The one I'm holding in the pic is Why Not,the middle color is Amethyst and the bottom color is Dream On. I am no doubt gonna try more tape manis! Practice makes perfect and just thinking of all the colors combos makes me wanna do another on right now lol!!
