Essie Ruby Slippers :D

Good evening!!

After a few days of pondering, I settled on Essie Ruby Slippers for my Christmas mani, and although I wasn't too sure at first it certainly grew on me! I ended up wearing it 3 or 4 days and fixing the little chips along :D Great red jelly with magenta and gold glitter it seems on my skin, it was opaque after 3 thin coats. The gold glitter didn't show as much IRL as it does in the pic, the magenta/burgundy was way more prominent!

Enjoy and have a great evening! :D

OPI Dear Santa :D

Good afternoon!!

I don't tend to wear reds often, but after trying on OPI Dear Santa last week I just might have to change that! DS is the most wonderful red infused w/ red and gold microglitter :D It's quite warm tho, but it fits perfectly with my warm skin tone :D It is definitely my all-time favorite red now.

And here's one more Christmas-y konadicure using the holly from plate M12 in Princess Deep Jungle Pearl polish. I wore that one for 4 days!

Enjoy and have a great day!! :D

FP Evergreen Dream :D

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Now that I'm back home, here's another of last week's manis, FingerPaints Evergreen Dream. This is a fantastic dark green shimmer that is opaque and even in only 2 thin coats! :D

And here's another Christmas-y konadicure using plate M12 and ChG 2030 (sorry for the blurry pic) :D

Enjoy and have a great evening! :D

CC Wild At Heart :D

Good morning!!

Just a quick post before I'm off for some last minute Christmas shopping (for my SO!!) and then to the pool. CC Wild At Heart is a great slightly holo/glittery purple, and it applies like a charm in 2 thin coats :D

Enjoy and have a great day! :D

SW Charming :D

Good afternoon!

Here's my first ever Street Wear, Charming. It's an amazing tealish blue glitter that made me fall in love!! This is 3 coats of Charming over 1 coat of ChG Millenium :D

And here's my first Christmas-y mani of the year, using plate M12 and ChG Millenium :D I LOVE it!!

Enjoy and have a great day!! :D

Island Girl Surfer Babe :D

Good evening!!

I just got the results from my shoulder MRI I had last week... I have a SLAP tear, part of the labrum also detached from the bone, and a tear in my supraspinatus tendon :( Trying cortisone injection next week to see if it will help manage the pain so I can keep training.

Enough of that so here's another recent NOTD, Island Girl Surfer Babe. This is one fantastic neon!!! I tried to color-correct the pic, but it's still 100000x brighter in real life! Like a green-turquoise pop :D

Enjoy and I'll be back soon with more :D

More Nails Inc :D

Good evening!

I spent a few days having to configure my SO's new laptop and reinstall Windows 7 on my own laptop so I've finally been able to edit and upload some new pics! Here are 2 very nice Nails Inc cremes that I wasn't sure about at first, but ended up loving on my warm skin :D First up is Carnaby Street, a very much mustard-like yellow that applies pretty nicely in 3 thin coats.

And now, here's Nails Inc Battersea Park, a fantastic dusty army green! Application was perfect in only 2 coats IIRC.

And here's Battersea Park topped with Creative Limelight :D I'm not sure why the pic shows such a different hue for the polish, but IRL you could only see the flakies!

Enjoy and have a great weekend! :D

ChG Aqua Baby :D

Good afternoon!

I bought this polish a couple of weeks ago due to swapper's remorse over having swapped away ChG Shower Together (they are the same color, but different formula it seems). Well I'm so glad I followed my gut! Aqua Baby is this wonderful medium bright aqua/teal creme that applies perfectly in 2 thin coats. I wore that mani for 6 days with only having a few touch-ups to do here and there :D The color IRL is a tad more green/teal than the pics show.

And on the 2nd day I added a pretty Konad design from plate M70 in Konad White polish. ♥ ♥

Enjoy and have a great weekend!! :D
