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!!

Hey ladies....

I got a few Wet N Wild colors from Walgreens yesterday for only 69cents!!!!  I am not sure when the sale is over,but you guys might wanna stop by there anyway!! I couldn't believe it!  CVS is also having a sale,buy two,get one free on the Spoiled polish!

A couple of bad days,but at least I have some cute shoes

Sooooooo,these last few days have been a mess. My truck broke down and we may have to get another one and my laptops' hard drive conked out. I lost everything on my computer. The good thing is  that my pics are all saved on an external hard I am sooooooooooooooooooooo thankful for that.  I am also lucky cause my husband works on computers and fixed it immediately for me.  I'm stuck in the house without a car, so I have to have my Internet!!

Anyway,I have a spring/summer sandal post today.... The pics are from my phone which is also giving me problems, but it's all I have until I load my camera software again.

Straight from Wal-mart :)  Gold & Silver Thong sandals.  I really love style of the gold ones! They are gorgeous. I originally saw them in the store in a silver color and I fell in love. Of course,I didn't get them that day and when I went back for them,they were gone. However the gold ones were in stock. So I got gold. they are beautiful,not as beautiful as the silver ones though.

I decided to go online and see if they had the silver and they did!!! Yay they also had my size (size 10 big feet I know)!!! So I ordered them and when they came one shoe was bigger then the other :( 

After looking in 4 Walmart's to no avail and then ordering them and they didn't fit,I decided they weren't meant for me and that's how I ended up with the silver ones you see here. Still gorgeous,but not like the ones I originally wanted.

Both pairs are really comfortable and so stylish! I cannot wait until my upcoming cruise to wear them! Well,if any of you ladies are interested,they were both $12.98 (budget friendly) from Wal-mart.
