Hello and happy Thursday! I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July holiday. Happy Birthday, America! Woo! I was suppose to do a tribute mani but lacked the time and motivation to do so. So… I may just do one anyway. It’s never too late to sport the good ol’ red white and blue!
Ok. So the other day I posted the Fast Track-Matte mani. Click here to view. 🙂 I wore this for an interview. Yay! I really liked it. Well Funky Nails had given me 2 other glitter polishes I’ve yet to get to and swatch for her. (Sorry, Minnie!) So this post is the view of what I did to my nails that night after my interview day. I played with the “sandwich” idea. Here’s how: I had my base color, added one/two coats of Fatigues and let it dry. I then added another coat of Fast Track. I wanted to keep it matte so I added Essies’ Matte About You. It came out ok. Next time I will try a different combo. My Fast Track by China Glaze is on the thick side (the whole Hunger Games collection is, really) so I was scared the glitter wouldn’t show up at all. Trial and error. 🙂
But anyway, here is my post for FATIGUES by Funky Nails! Fatigues is part of her mini-collection called “For The Troops”!
She describes Fatigues as “Yellow,green, silver, black, gold glitter in a clear base”. I liked it on top of Fast Track.

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!

Happy Sunday to you! Today’s post is a swatch from last week. Last week was a very busy and hard week. I painted a few times. I’ll just say that my emotions were very much like a roller coaster. However, this weekend has been much better. Saturday was a huge improvement on my emotional ride of a week and I am thankful. I hate feeling like that.
Here is the first of my swatches for the Funky Nails mini collection of the LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS. It’s called Caviar Dreams. 🙂
I love this glitter polish. She did great with her glitter selection and combos; “Caviar Dreams is black and silver hex in a shimmery silver base”.
I layered it over an Orly called “Powder Puff” which is a pink-creme/nude color. I liked this combo. It let the glitters take over. 🙂 I hope you like it.

Here is the final color for Funky Nails’ “Every Woman” collection! And I saved it for last. Why? Because it was my absolute favorite! 🙂 I have a feeling this one will be the most desired of the whole collection. But that’s just my personal opinion. hee hee. I am SO excited to have done this for her! Thank you to Minnie over at Funky Nails for allowing me to swatch her first collection! You can visit her site and blog by clicking here!
Here is the fifth and final color of Funky Nails “EVERY WOMAN” collection. This beautiful red polish is called Vibrant, and justly so! “Vibrant is a classic red with holo glitter.”

3 down, 2 to go! 🙂 Here is the fourth polish in the Funky Nails “EVERY WOMAN” collection. This color was hard for my camera to pick up. It looks black in the photos but in one of them, you can see the bottle color. On my nails, it came out very deep. But still very pretty. 🙂 I hope you like it! Go visit Funky Nails for her blog and store site!
The fourth color in the EVERY WOMAN collection is called Diva. “Diva is a black purple with purple and red shimmer.”
