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 calledย 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ And now… Champange Wishes!

Black on Black

24 Feb

Happy Thursday (or Friday) to you. ๐Ÿ™‚ This post has a few pictures. So… after I did the pretty violet flake mani, today at work, I broke a nail. GRR. So, thank God for my emergency kit in my drawer. lol. I was able to clip and file them down (tear). I feel like I have little nubs for fingers. ๐Ÿ™‚ So since they’re short again, I wanted to do a black mani, which I realized I haven’t done in a really long time, if ever.

My base color is Black on Black by sinful colors. i love this black. It’s very opaque and smooth in application. I did two coats and then topped with my SV (seche vite). I then stamped using plate BM-224. I believe this is my first time using this image. I loved it. I used utla’s “snow white” and added small rhinestone stickers to the flowers. ๐Ÿ™‚ I then added another coat of SV. It came out cute.

Tyin’ the Knot!

17 Jan

Happy Monday to you! ^_^ I hope that your weekend was enjoyable. Happy MLK day. I’m thankful for the day off. Back to work tomorrow. I have a few bottles I still have not used. One being, Tyin’ the Knot! (punctuation marks included). This is by Sally Hansen, the Diamond Strength brand. I love this color. I did 2 coats and let dry. I was going to stamp it but opted for texture instead. I used Nicole’s (by OPI) Black Texture. I was dissapointed in the dullness of my texture top coat, it was kinda dull and gray. But once I added my SV top coat, it was like, BAM! I’m here and I’m texture! LOL! ๐Ÿ˜€ So, needless to say, I was very happy. I hope you like it!


I hope you have a blessed week! Thanks for stopping by!

Of Corset Is!

28 Dec

Happy Tuesday to you. It’s late so this one will be short. ๐Ÿ™‚ I did my base coat first. It’s a must. Protect your nails from staining and an extra plus if it’s got strengthening ingredients like wheat or calcium. Then did two coats of my new color. It was one of many gifts of polish for Christmas. Thanks to all who gave me some! Love them.

So this new color is by Ulta. It’s called “Of Corset It!” (exclamation point included. lol.) This is more of a deep brown, maybe even black, with a nice purpley-golden hint of glitter. It’s veryย nice. And since my nail cracked and they’re short, I thought it a perfect time to do a dark color. I then topped it off with my SV fast dry top coat.

It’s not been my best manicure since I was rushing. blah. So sorry for the stuff you might see. ๐Ÿ™‚ But I gotta do them. lol. I hope you like the color. Ulta colors ROCK!
