Nail-Venturous Pinkerbell & Floam Zebra

Today I added a stamp to my mani from yesterday. I decided to do a zebra stamp using BM 223 with Sally Hansen White On just to add a little something extra. I love how simple and cute it turned out!

The wear on these Nail-Venturous lacquers are really good! I have been cleaning, folding laundry, giving my daughter a bath, taking a shower, etc...and its held up SUPER good!

Nail-Venturous Pinkerbell & Floam

Remember that totally awesome and amazing nail mail I received the other day? You know, the one with those Ah-Ma-ZING frankens from I'm Feeling Nail-Venturous? Well today I'm going to show you Pinkerbell and Floam.

Some of you might recognize the name Floam. Well it was a 90's toy craze that kids, like myself, begged their parents to buy. Amy had a little trouble trying to come up with a name for it, and luckily we have a ninja like Rhonni who thought of it!

How perfect is that name?
Pinkerbell is actually Floam's long lost sister polish. Pinkerbell has the same glitters as Floam, but with pink added.
I decided to do a mani using both!
All pictures are two coats.
This picture is my favorite because it brings out the blue!

Please, feel free to click pictures and enlarge the beauty.

These were super easy to apply and dried relatively fast, a little slower than normal glitters but faster than normal cremes. After drying, I added a coat of Gelous and Seche Vite.
Are you in love yet?

Don't forget to check out Amy's blog over at I'm Feeling Nail-Venturous for your chance to win Floam, Pinkerbell, & Orange You Unique?

Valentines Day Mani #2

The other day I posted my very first Valentines Day mani. Well today, I have another one to show you!
After doing my mani I was really unsure as to what I should do to my other hand! I tried to something a little easier because I am not that good yet at doing nail art with my left hand.

The kisses were a huge hit on my last mani, so I decided to do a "kissed nail" to get the effect of an overwhelming amount of kisses is being given.

The colors and plate I used are all relatively the same, except for the index finger. For the index finger I used a base of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On, then one coat of Icing After Party, and one coat of OPI I Lily Love You.

The plate I used is BM02 from the 17 piece Bundle Monster stamping plate set.

Valentines Day Mani

I know Valentines Day is a little ways away, but it's one of my favorite occasions so I couldn't resist starting a mani.

Here are the colors and tools I used for this mani.
Sally Hansen White On, OPI DS Temptation, Lynnderella Love Potion No 99, Orly Bubbly Bombshell, Lynnderella The Telltale Heart, Shany Nail Art Stripers, OPI Planks A Lot, OPI That's Hot! Pink, Bundle Monster nail art tools, and Bundle Monster plate BM02. 
I also used a heart rhinestone from an ebay set which is not pictured.

 Here is a picture without flash to show the dimensions of the glitter.

What do you think? Im hoping to do a few more Valentines Day inspired manis, so I would love some feedback!

Brown and Black Holo Comparison

I'mmmm baaaack! My nails are finally starting to look better and grow nicer! I will have my post of the experience using Nailtique.

Today I have a comparison post to show you.
I will be comparing:
OPI My Private Jet (brown holo)
OPI My Private Jet (charcoal-brown holo)
Glitter Gal 10 to Midnight
Glitter Gal Black
Direct Sunlight
LtoR: OPI MPJ(brn holo), OPI MPJ(charcoal holo), HITS Zeus, 
GG 10 to Midnight, & GG Black holo

Indoor Natural Light

As you can see, the closest ones are HITS Zeus and GG 10 to Midnight. The only difference is that the GG has more of a metallic finish in the sun. After swatching this, I'm not too sure I'm in love with my brown holo MPJ! Don't call me crazy now!

If you would like I can also compare two of the newer versions of MPJ and my black holo franken. Just let me know :)

Anyways, onto the goodies! Over the past few months I have acquired some beauties and thought you might like to see!

What do you think? Will you be taking a trip to pick some of these up? All of these are relatively inexpensive and are under $8 USD each.

I know I am missing a swatch of Milani Blue Lightening, the color did not look good in my lighting so I am going to take a better picture in the sun, whenever that decides to come out!
