I took a chance on one of my untried polishes


China Glaze It's Alive! Honestly I bought this color because it was only on sale so it has been sitting for quite sometime So I figured I test it out!

This polish is great!! It goes on opaque in one coat! With a beautiful forest green. The glitter in this is a dream but once it dries it is pretty gritty, but one coat of Seche Vite and it smoothed right out!!!

I just posted a bunch of my old nail art on my facebook page. I will probably post them here too, but until then go check them out. Facebook



boredom equals little nails

Bad News First:
So I went to a movie night mostly because I wanted to see 21 Jump Street Again. It is so funny! But then I was stuck watching some anime movie (thats what I get when my co-workers are all employed by video game companies) and started picking my nails. Which really really sucks! It takes me forever to get my nails to grow. I am always picking and biting them.


My poor sad tiny little nails. Glad I still a half bottle of Nail Envy to last me till my next pay day.


Good News:
Which leads me to the most exciting news of the week!!!!! After a month of looking I finally got a job interview!! As awesome as it may seem to sit around and do nothing all day I am one of those people that would rather be at work. And with a paycheck means I CAN BUY POLISH AGAIN!!!!! And it has been over a month since I have bought any polish and now some of the polishes that were on the top of my wishlist wont be available anytime soon or ever. :(

Finishing up a challenge list I was doing over on tumblr.

Here are the last two categories:

Day 13: Combo of two other challenges on the list. I choose to do half moon and a french tip.


I used butter LONDON All Hail The Queen and then butter LONDON in Bossy Boots.


And day 14: Use a new tutorial! So I went out to discover one that was easy and I hadn't seen before. 
So I landed upon this tutorial which I had seen before. I used this tutorial. 


For this one I used OPI panda-moniuh Pink and China Glaze Midnight Kiss.

Until next time!



Its been two whole days!

I havent painted my nails in two days. I feel naked! I have just been working on finding a job. When I had a job I never really believed that it was hard to find a job with retail and all that but now that I need one they are no where to be found!

I've applied everywhere. It sucks a lot! It sucks even more that I cant buy any nail polish! So I have been entering every giveaway I see trying to win some of those gorgeous indie beauties.


I guess for now it gives me an excuse to use some of the polishes in my untried box. 
I will be starting this challenge next week and it should be fun. And what a great idea to start it off with glitter! Who doesnt love glitter?!
  1. Glitter
  2. Water marble
  3. Flower

I thought I would post some of my old manicures.




I've decided to post a few of my old manis to just so you can get an idea of what I like to do. :)

I think these are some pretty awesome ones. 





This is the first time I ever tried to do roses. And it tuned out great. 
I used Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet, Sally Hansen White On, honestly I cant remember the light pink but the darker one is Essie In Stitches and the dark green leaves are Essie Sew Psyched.


For this design I copied the wonderful Mr CandiiPants. She has amazing designs. Check out her tumblr or her blogspot.

Just another way to feed my nail polish addiction

Well I finally decided to make an actual blog instead of just using tumblr. Im pretty excited I love having new ways to share my obsession with nail polish! And just a warning I dont have a nice camera right now so you will have to deal with my shitty iPhone pictures. :(

I love the nail polish community and it is much easier to keep track of the blogs I follow instead of going to all of their blogs individually.

Expect a lot of posts in the coming week. Im unemployed at the moment which means lots of time to paint my nails!!

Here is a mani I did last night!
I used butter LONDON Slapper and Bossy Boots. And the silver is OPI Designer De Better.


Im gonna need to find out how to watermark these in a different way because they all say tumblr.

12:30 in the morning I think I should get some sleep.
