Grass Stain

   So I was in the mood to wear a polish I don't wear very much because I have been an OPI wearing machine lately. So I go through my polish and happen upon a favorite from middle school. This is Revlon's Street Wear in Grass Stain. Now I know there are three versions of this color. This is the one that says grass stain 04. Its a army/olive green with a gold micro micro sheen in the sun:) I used two coats and I still love it! So perfect for this time of year:)
Inside: You can see a little of the gold
Another Indoor photo
Outside in the California Sun. So shiny!
trying to show the gold a little more
A bottle shot for you ladies. You can tell I loved it:)
Let me know what you think!

I have my brothers wedding in a week so I am going to be trying to figure out what color to wear with my dress:) I am known for my nails so I can do whatever I want which is nice. Oh the ideas:)  Have a good one and I will talk to ya'll soon!


One of my collections

   Being a girl I tend to collect things. I have my nail polish...obviously. But I also collect things that have to do with strawberries ( i lost my strawberry sling have no idea how sad I am)
   I do also collect penguins....I have quite a collection of those now as well. Though just an fyi I did like penguins BEFORE march of the penguins so I am not a band wagon jumper....
   Anyways this blog post is about something else that I collect but its more common I guess in a way. I started collecting disney pins. About one year ago I would estimate. I had been given 3 pins by some one and I found them one day and decided to look them up as I noticed 2 of them said limited edition on the back, and so it started! So I am going to show you my collection so you can see what I have and you can tell me if you think I am nuts or if you like them as well!
WARNING!!! You are about to get bombarded with photos:) Enjoy and see you all soon!

This is all of them on my lanyard.
Went with black for the pins:)

Josh won this for me on ebay. It is my favorite of
all my pins:) Yay for boyfriends:)

Stitch came to my in a B-day Card:)
Another of the original three pins:)
I love the old school Disney musical cartoons:)
Ariel: There is another Little Mermaid pin
I am jonesing for.But I had to represent my fav movie

One of my all time favorite movies.
Also means it is my fav time to go to Disney:)
Does anyone remember this cartoon?
Last of the Originals. A mushroom from Fantasia.
He is a limited edition as well! and so cute and tiny
Who doesn't love Mulan?

This was one of the three pins that were given to me.
A limited release from when it came to dvd. LOVE it!
I got this as a birthday present last year.
Another limited edition

I got it!

So here is a Nicole nail polish that I got on sale the other day at Target. It was so pretty I just had to bring it home with me:)

This is Poised in Turquiose( my label is spelled that way...wonder why they misspelled it?)

But definitely an eye catcher!
What do you think?

Yummy Stripey Goodness

Since I am on a wah-nails kick I will show you one I did about a month or so ago. I used almost all OPI Hong Kong collection for this look and loved it. Though I am still not so good at the perfect stripes on the right hand:(

I was so excited to have these done that I took the pictures before clean up....which is a bad habit for me! I will get better I promise folks!

So this is Dim Sum Plum, Suzi says Fung Shui, Jade is the new black and Funky Dunkey.

Then just an elf white and a black nail art pen.

I had a lot of fun with these and everyone really liked them and said they looked very london. Which is where wah-nails is from so that was cool.

Do you guys love them too?

Let me know what you think!

Anchors Away

So I was browsing one of my favorite nail sites wah-nails and I decided to so some anchors:) So here is my nautical manicure, and just because I can I am going to show you my right hand with my left handed art work:S

Two coats each of OPI Suzi says fueng shui and red...OPI red. Then because I wanted the black anchors to be fairly thin I used sally hansens nail art pen. Then just my nail art striper in white.

What do you guys think? I think it is pretty cute:) would be a good summer July manicure. Since I am in California it doesnt feel like autumn is on its way yet...I miss Montana sometimes:(

Talk to you soon!

Got the Greys?

Sorry I posted this so late/early. I crashed at 7pm....guess I was tired.

I got onto the Grey train late in the game....for some crazy unknown reason I didnt think grey would look nice. WRONG! wrong oh so wrong. But to test this out I didnt want to shell out alot of money and then hate it. So I got sally hansens wet cement.

I actually really like this polish...the color and coverage is very nice only needing two coats. The brush isn't bad either. But after I painted them Grey once I wanted to spiff it up a little so I layered one coat of OPI's What's the dune? HOLY MOLEY! A Grey holo!!!! LOVE!!! I wore this for 5 days which is equivalent to a century to my nails....and I would wear it again!

The second is color accurate and the first one shows the shimmer really well. So there you have new manicure love...the grey holo:)

Hope you guys love it too!

Purple blue flash

Warning...this is going to be photo heavy:)
   I fell in love when i went to cvs....for non polish of course and this polish yelled at me from the bottom of a shelf were someone else had misplaced it.
   Confetti is the $1.99 polish that cvs just started carrying(well mine anyway) and their polish that was screaming at me to take it home? Ice Ice Baby.....yup for serious. It made me.....*starts singing*STOP! Collaborate and LISTEN! LOL! Anyways:) So I bought Ice Ice baby and one of their other glitters they I haven't tried yet.
   Okay prepare yourself for love:)

This is one coat of OPI's Funky Dunkey and two coats Ice Ice Baby and seche vite topcoat:)

Here are two that you can really see the blue flash from the glitter:)

I dunno what happened to my middle finger:S

Because of the name I was calling this the ice dunkey lol! Can you see why I loved it? Then I had to break down a film tonight and broke 2 nails and destroyed almost all of the other polish* sigh* I hate Thursdays at work now....BUT now I get to try out the other confetti polish!

   Let me know what you think:) Come back tomorrow for the "coolest" layer mani tomorrow( i have two days off so I swear it will be tomorrow)

Something girly

   I am the extreme girly girl and I love the florals and the bright colors. But when I saw Lisa's Blog I fell in love with her layering and color choices. She has some AMAZING manicures so definitely go check out her blog.
   So in her honor I did my own layered manicure ( i did my best but I only have three konad plates) and I loved the crazy awesome over fabulousness that was this manicure. My mom thought it was to much but me, I thought it was good fun!

    I used all OPI colors besides one( I only own one yellow and that is solar power by china glaze) But I just thought the manicure was fun especially after I went all crazy with rhinestone butterflies:)

  OPI colors used: What's with the Cattitude?, Funky Dunkey, Magala Wine, Jade is the new Black. I am sorry to say I don't remember what color I used to get the orange-ish flower. Sorry guys!
   Well I hope you like my girly over the top manicure:)

see ya soon!
