Hello Everyone! Today I have for you guys a super pretty polish form Ultra Pro. The name Mermaid suites this polish perfectly it's a pale minty green color with green shimmer and in some lights and angles an auburn shimmer. It's kind of hard to see the simmer in the photos but in person it's definitely there. The only down side to this polish is that its super sheer so it required a lot of coats.

Galaxy Nails

This weeks monday nail art challenge on Polish-aholics Anonymous was Galaxy themed. I was excited to try this out cuz I've seen some pics of other peoples nails and they look so pretty. So I googled some tutorials and then some images of galaxies and gave it shot. I'm not a 100% satisfied with it, mainly because I think my "stars" are to big and that there are to many (I did less dots on my left had).


Ahhh so my blog anniversary came and went on Aug 26th without me noticing because I thought I started my blog late Sept not late Aug. Huge fail on my part because I wanted to do a giveaway to thank all my followers who have been reading my blog for the last year. I still plan on doing a giveaway it will just be a bit later since I need time to gather some gifts, so stay tuned in for that! Anyway, I just want to say thank you to those of you who follow my blog. I know when I started my blog it was just me and a few of my friends following via my personal facebook and then slowly I started to gain followers from all over the place. I can't say it enough really thank you for taking time and seeing what I have to post and for the comments!

To commemorate my blogs anniversary I thought it would be fun to have a look back at some of my favorite nail post as my blog is mainly a nail blog with a few other random things sprinkled in.

1. Hook'em one of my first attempts at nail art!

3. Beat Your Heart Out!  Definitely still my fav of nail art I've done.

5. Mix-N-Match: Guy Meets Havana Dreams Love the way these two colors look together!

Heres Guy Meets Gal-veston on its own cuz its such a pretty color.

6. Prabal Gurung Mani I love these cuz the design was so bold.

So there you have it a few of my favorite manis from the past.  Like I said I still plan on doing a giveaway it will just be later.

Double Lightning Bolt

Hello everyone! Today's post features another attempt at a tape mani. This time I did the actual double lightning bolt and then just like Jane I also did a matte version. I think it came out pretty good, although I think I need some work on the placement of the tape but other than that I really like the way it came out.

Flower Nail Fail...

Hello eveyone! As the title suggest I wasn't too happy with the way this mani turned out. I wouldn't say its a complete fail but I wasn't really diggin' it. The design was inspired by a Dia de los Muertos skull my bff Mk got me, which I absolutely love! I think it would have been better if I actually took my time, because it's kind of sloppy and I also wasn't crazy about the placement of the design on my nails.

My 1st Franken!

Hello everyone and welcome to the new followers I've gotten in the past week or so. Today's post features my very first try at frankening a nail polish. It's not bad for my first try but I'm not 100% happy with it. Its about a shade darker and in person the holographic glitter is more apparent, although not as much as I'd like. Listed below are all the ingredients I used to make the polish. Also excuse the color of my skin in this first pic I had to edit the color of the polish which made my skin look yellow.

Lightning Bolt Mani

Hello everyone! Todays post features my attempt at Jane's ever popular lightning bolt manis. My take was a little different as I decided to use only two colors instead of three, so I taped off the top and bottom part of my nail to create the lightning bolt shape. I also found using a coat of Seche Vite over my base coat helps the tape remove a lot easier since the surface is smoother.

Mk's Geometric 80s Nails

Hey everybody! Wednesday my friend Mk came over to get her nails did (lol) and catch up since she had been gone all summer. Anyway she wanted something geometric with bold colors, so we came up with this design, which is very 80s. I taped off the triangular areas using tape then with my stripers outlined them.

Electric Pineapple goes Retro

Hey Everybody! Todays post features Electric Pineapple by China Glaze. I had been wanting this polish but never went out and got it, then a couple weeks ago I went to my local Sallys and it was on clearance for $1.99!! Needless to say I snatched it up, and I'm so I happy I finally got it! Anyway I wore it on its own for like a day then I decided to add some red to it and I think it has a retro look to it.
