Purple Awesome-ness!!

Hello! Today I have for you all layered purple awesome-ness!!!! I had to adjust the color saturation to get the color of the polish right so thats why my skin color looks off, I hate that sometimes purple polishes come out looking blue when you photograph them...oh well. Anyway for this layering combo I started of with OPI INK. then a layer of Purple-xing then finally two coats of Motley. It is so much more awesome than the pictures look because the glitter form Purple-xing sparkles and you get the color shift form the flakes in Motley.

Bonita CO2

Today I have for you guys another polish from Bonita called CO2 which is a beautiful metallic teal. The color is crazy beautiful the only problem is that it stains like crazy! Even with a layer of base coat it still stained my nails. Then for something a little more fun I added an accent nail, hope you like it!

Blue Steel

Hello! Today I have a swatch of a new to me brand called Bonita (which means pretty in spanish). I picked up a few polishes from this brand and let me just say that the name fits because so far the polishes that I've tried have been very pretty. Anyway I'll let the pictures do the talking!

Roses for Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!!! Hope you all have had a day filled with love and that its been a great day so far. I came up with the idea for this mani after I did my red/hot pink leopard mani. I wanted to do something with traditional vday colors red, white, and light pink but didn't want to do hearts so I decided to do some roses down the middle. I really like the way this came out so I hope you all like it as well!

Red & White Polk-a-Dots

Hello, today I have another V-day themed mani for you. I like this because it's not overtly valentine-y with hearts and stuff but still gets the point across.

I wasn't sure if I was going to post these pics up because as much as I love the way Ahoy! looks I didn't feel the pics I took really captured the color and how pretty it really is.  Anyway to make it a little more Valentine-y I added a dotted heart on my thumb nails, hope you like it!

Neon streak

I did this mani awhile back I just never got around to posting it....Anyway I got the inspiration for this mani because I saw a photo of a mani that used a hot pink with a pale nude pink and loved the way the two colors looked together. For my mani I freehanded the neon streaks and then used tape for the glitter streak, I was going to do them all pink but then decided it needed something a bit more flashy so I added the glitter streak on one nail.

Red Hot Leopard!

Ahhhhh so I know I haven't posted in like forever!!!! But I hope you all forgive me and that you still love me and my blog after all it is the month of Love!!! Ok so now onto my super awesome mani, I was so in love with they way this came out that I wore it for a whole week!!! So it all started off with the fact that I wanted to do a mani with red and hot pink but didnt know what kind of desing to go with so I went over to WAH Nails to get some inspiration and found a leopard print mani I liked and just recreateed it using pink and red. Its funny because I actually did a red and hot pink leopard print mani last year around v-day too but this one definitely takes the cake!!!
