Interview Appropriate

29 Jun

Happy Friday world! I have an interview today! 🙂 Please pray for me. I’m excited. I wanted to stay away from tips-very cliche’. So I opted for a clean calm color.

This is 2 coats of China Glaze’s “Fast Track” (of the Hunger Games Collection) and one coat of Essie’s “Matte About You”. I really like the outcome. The matte really makes the glitter go “pop!” These pictures are without flash. Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by and God Bless you! -Sara

Another Pink Wednesday

27 Jun

Happy Wednesday to you! 🙂 I hope you are doing well! Today is hump day which equals PINK! Unfortunately, not really (lol), I will not be sporting pink today. However, I will be posting pictures of last week’s that I didn’t get around to posting. I am still rocking my Orly blue navy and have just added gold stamp images. Love it! Anywho, back to rocking the pink! Here’s last weeks mani for Pink Wednesday!

My base color is China Glaze’s Flip Flop Fantasy (2 coats, SV) and on my ring finger, I sponged using China Glaze’s Rose Among Thorns (neon). I then used dotting tools dipped in Sinful Color’s Snow Me White. I really liked this mani. I hope you do too! These photos are with no flash.

 

Royal Navy

26 Jun

Top of the morning to ya! Literally. 🙂 It’s just after midnight. I had an eventful and productive afternoon and evening and it feels refreshing, although tiring. I almost didn’t get to painting but I’m very happy I did. I’ve been itching to try one of my new additions. This color is called Royal Navy. To me, it’s a cross between being blue and navy. Hope that makes sense. I did two coats and then topped it off with SV. The glitters reflect green and gold at some angles. I really liked this one. I was expecting it to be a jelly formula but I was mistaken. 🙂 Not the first. lol. All pictures here are without flash. My camera has been wonky lately and it didn’t do the color any justice.

Floral Friday

23 Jun

Happy Friday to you all! This will be a quick post. 🙂 I wanted something girly and floral. So this is last night’s mani.

I started with 2 coats of Ulta’s Snow White and topped it off with one coat of SV. I then used Sinful Colors’ Black on Black with plate BM-224. I’m not really into this mani. I would have liked it better if the colors were reveresed. But… here it is anyway. Have a great weekend and God Bless!

Funky Nails- Champagne Wishes

18 Jun

Happy Monday to you world! I want to share the other (and final) polish in the Funky Nail mini-collection called the LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS. I really like her glitter creations. Her last one was Caviar Dreams and was just as fancy and classy as this one is. I love them both and would like to thank Funky Nails for providing me with the opportunity and her polishes to swatch. This has been so much fun! Ok. Back to the glitters! Eeks! 🙂

This lovely gold glitter is called Champagne Wishes. Minnie, from Funky Nails, describes it: “Champagne Wishes is small gold hex glitter with gold micro glitter in a clear base”. And i love it! I layered this on top of two coats of Sinful Colors’ “Black on Black” which is THE black for me. lol. And I loved the outcome. I did break 2 nails today during laundry so thus the black. 🙂 And now… Champange Wishes!
