Black and Gold New Years Mani

Happy New Years Eve Everyone!!

I hope you all have a great safe night welcoming in 2013!
Its lame but.....I will be asleep. I unfortunately have to work in the morning so no late night for this girl. I'm like a grandma and if I don't get adequate sleep...Major Cranky Pants.

As I promised yesterday, today I have for  you a black and gold mani for today's festivities!

 I did two coats of the gold glitter , I did not put a gold base coat down cause I wanted it to be less opaque. The polish just reminded me of sparkly, bubbly champagne!
Hence why I did the bubble stamp on all but my middle finger.
I just used a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen to write on the 2013.

 Konad Stamping Polish in Black
Julep Vivien (Such a great glitter, has big chunky glitter and microglitter!)

Isn't it beautiful?

 Cheeky Jumbo Nail Plate (B)
As you can probably tell, these plate scratch HORRIBLY but does not affect the actual stamp thank goodness, just looks bad.

 Alrighty guys, this will be the last post of 2012! I can't believe the year is over but excited to see what 2013 brings.
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit and I hope you all have a great night but please make it home safe and have a designated driver or call a cab!
Thanks guys and see you next year!

Black and Silver New Year Mani

Happy New Years Eve Eve Everyone!
Sorry it has been a while, I had some posts saved for when I got a new tatoo and knew typing would be murder. (Tattoo is on inner forearm)

Today I have for you the first of my two New Years manis.
I decided to go the silver/black route with these with of course some glitter awesomeness.

I was not in the mood for just one accent nail so I decided to do something different on all.
I liked the idea of the thumb one for the new years kiss. No reason for the pinkie except thought super cute and fit pinkie well. lol

My watermarble did not come out quite like I wanted but still cute and added stars for a pop.

China Glaze Glistening Snow(Index)
Wet n'Wild Black Creme (stamping)

I didn't think the other pics showed the holographic quality of this nail. 
I really like the flashiness of the glitter with the black

At first I thought, this will be like fairy dust....oh no. This is much much more opaque and a much finer of a glitter. Both have a holographic aspect to them but definitely different.

China Glaze Techno (Used on Ring)
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Silver Sweep (used for water marbling and stamping)

Big Chunky Holographic Yumminess!

I hope you all enjoyed this look and come back tomorrow for my gold and black design!
Thank you as always for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous night!

Christmas Candy!

Happy Saturday!!
Today I have a super sweet mani for you guys!

I saw Colores De Carol do this design and.....if you know me at all, 
I had to make it mine with a twist and some glitter

I decided to do with a silver background and metallic red. After, I just had to add my favorite holographic glitter topcoat!

We had zero sun today but the glitter just adds such a great shimmer and fun to it!

KleanColor Holo Haul

Welcome Back!

When I got the Metallic Collection back when, I got the set of 6 Holos. I already had the chunky Holos and thought these would be a great addition, especially for the price.

As you can tell, they definitely need to have a base color put down to avoid the visual nail line.
This was three coats.

 Holo Pink
Holo Orange
Holo Yellow
Holo Green
 Holo Blue
Holo Chrome

Here is the ebay link where I got these beauties.
I hope you all have a great time and see you next time!

Julep New Years Mystery Box

Hey guys!
So I got super stoked when saw Twitter post that there is another Julep mystery box and this one guaranteed to be valued at least $100 instead of regular $60.

I've done a mystery box way back when and was happy so couldn't resist ordering this one.

You know I will be posting the moment I get it!

If you want to share in my giddiness and get your own ...... Visit here.

Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas Tree

Hey Guys!
Happy Sunday!
Today I have a easy Christmas tree mani for you.
I saw the idea from Amber Did It and needed to give it a try with my own twist.


From Left to Right:
Julep Emelie
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Silver Sweep
KleanColor Shooting Star

 I did not have any star gems so used one of the gold regular ones.
Close enough. lol

I really liked the glitter and green combo, so decided to do on all nails and the ring accent with the tree.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a great day!

Christmas Sweater

Hey Guys,
Happy Wednesday! 
I'm super stoked about today's mani.

I had seen a mani a year ago when I started doing my own nails and thought.....I couldn't do that. Well I feel I did a pretty good job at recreating it.
I can't find the original one I saw last here or I would put here the link.

I hope you all think as cute as I do. 
I'd rather wear a Christmas sweater on my nails than on an actual sweater.

See you guys next time!
