NOTD featuring China Glaze Mosaic Madness

Today I felt the need for an accent nail. Looking through my stash I found this China Glaze I have yet to try out. In the bottle it looked like blue and black hex glitter. 

What I didn't notice is there is black bar glitter too! I decided to use Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Eel Skin as my base and then two layers of glitter on my accent nail. We have big black hex glitter in there too! This polish was more than I expected and I'm kinda in love with it.

Manicure Monday

I know it's technically Tuesday, but it's the first day of the work week so let's just pretend it's Monday ok? Lol

I went with a blue and silver look this week. I started with my fave blue; Sinful Colors Rain Storm. I then topped it with a coat of Sally Hansen Triple Shine in Sparks Fly. It's simple and works well with these sad nubs I'm rocking right now. Hope you like!

Swatch: wet n wild Wild Shine in Deception

Jelly!! Squishy!!! That's what this polish is. I'm a sucker for jellies and wet n wild, so when wet n wild did a jellie duh I got it lol. Of course it's sheer, this is four coats. But that's what jellies do right?'s got that squishy look I love. Can't wait to use this for some jelly sandwich action.

Manicure Monday

Jelly sandwich time! I wondered how flakies would work in a jelly sandwich. So I started with a layer of Essie Shine of the Times then topped it with three layered of Zoya Frida. It ended up being very subtle and I like it. Really shines in the sun too.

Tiesday: Orange for the fight against Leukemia

So here at the office we have "Tiesday" which is when we all wear ties on Tuesday. (Tie+Tuesday=Tiesday) this week we wore Orange to honor the fight against Leukemia. Why? Well, last Monday our lovely, bright, all around amazing coworker Kim lost her two year fight with Leukemia. After a week of being devastated one of the girls here came up with the idea of making this Tiesday special in memory of Kim 
Yay orange tie! (Yay pic obviously taken before coffee has taken effect)

Of course I had to match my nails. I chose Zoya in Amy. This is such an axing color. The orange and gold flecks really make this one special. And being Zoya, the formula is a dream.

Manicure Monday

I'm alive! Sorry I have been MIA for so long. This whole multiple job thing is kicking my butt!! 

A few years ago this color came out as a Nordstrom exclusive and I fell in love with it. I lagged at buying it and missed it. Then butter London brought it back as part of their main line and I had to snatch it up. It was my "I survived the holiday season in retail" present to myself. 

So here she is. Butter London's Two Fingered Salute. I loooooove the copper specks. Looooove!

Swatch: Maybelline Drops of Jade

So I have a total weakness for black and white glitter. I also love milky glitter sandwiches so this one seemed totally up my alley! 

This is three layers with topcoat. Isn't it lovely? Sadly, this mani didn't even last a day. I have not had chipping this bad on a long time. I know I'm hard on my hands but just one day is sad! I love the look so might try it again to see if the chipping was a fluke, if it isn't then this will just be used to make some purdy nail polish jewelry.

NOTD : Sinful Colors Rain Storm with Faceted

I'm alive! Ok kinda. Lol. Juggling 3 jobs and still getting over the evil cold of doom. But! My nails are cute. Yay? 

Did a quick mani with a base of Sinful Colors Rain Storm. I love this color. It is the perfect dusty blue. I then topped it with Sinful Colors Faceted. I did one coat of Faceted and was a bit bummed the bar glitter was sparse on the brush. I think I chose the wrong base color as you can barely see the glitter. Or maybe I just need more glitter. You can never go wrong with more glitter. 

I'm going to do my best to blog more often. I have soooo many polishes to share and products to review. I can't wait to share with you guys.
