Nomadic in Nude

13 Aug

Happy Monday to you! I hope your weekend was great! Mine was many blessings-full. The Lord is good. 🙂 I’d like to say congratulations to our good friends Sammy & Cynthia! They were united in marriage on Saturday. We are so happy for them! This mani is actually the one I wore for their wedding.

The base color is Color Club’s “Nomadic in Nude”. This color is a warm beige color. It’s a nude based color but due to my natural tan, you may not tell. But on others, it will definitely look nude. 🙂 Either way, I really like this color. It went great with my dress and their wedding. I did 2 coats of this and topped it off with Sv. I then stamped my ring fingers with Snow Me White-something soft and barely there. I used plate BM- 210. I then added small pink rhinestones to all of my fingers to accent them and give them subtle bling. This also went really well with my dress since it was a coral, pinky color. I hope you like it! All of these photos were taken with flash.

Thanks for stopping by! God Bless & have a great week!


Fast Track- Hunger Games China Glaze

1 Apr

Happy weekend! Can you believe it’s already April!? Time flies so fast. But, I’m thankful. Celebrated my youngest sister’s birthday, she turned 3! 🙂 my parents are very young. hee hee. And my other sister is visting us here at home for 2 weeks. I’m so thankful. Amazing how God brings exactly what we need, exactly when we need it! God is good!

Ok. So, I took a break from the HG collection for a while. After the movie, I have to admit I was a bit bummed. lol. Everyone looks at me crazy, but I was greatly disappointed. Blah. Moving on. lol. But I also wanted to wait and give my short nails some time to grow a few mm. I’m starting to feel closer to my regular lenght. But it’ll take time.

Today’s post is an awesome color! As you all know, nudes are very “in” this year, have been since maybe last fall? Not sure exact time period, BUT, i love the nudes. I was so happy when I first saw this color in the HG collection. It’s so soft and so chic. A very nice shade of “nude” with some fine gold glitter to enchance it and give that much more oomph. I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by. God Bless!


Dress Me Up- Hunger Games China Glaze

14 Mar

Happy Wednesday to you. I hope your week has gone well so far. As for me, here, it’s been busy. But overall, can’t complain. 🙂 Filed my nails down again today. Seems I’m doing it every other day or two. Which makes me happy because my nails grow fast. But sad, since I miss my long nails. Still seeing if keeping them short for a while will help push back my hyponychium. So far, no improvement. The length you’ll see here is as short as I can go, and I was cutting it close.

Anywho, here is Dress Me Up. It’s a very pretty nudey-shade of pink. On my skin, it brings out the red undertones which makes me look darker. But as for the color, it’s such a lady-like color, in my opinion anyway. 🙂 Which makes me love it all the more. I did two coats and then one coat of SV. I hope you like it. 🙂

Nouvea Vintage

26 Dec

***Mistakenly thought this was called Nouvea Vintage. The color is actually Earth Angel***

Happy Monday to you! Today is a day of resting and recooperating for my husband and me. 🙂 Lots of family to visit, lots of food and we had an awesome Game Night last night. So we’re tired but we’re thankful. God is good. So… yesterday during our Scrabble game, I noticed I had a hang nail. So I was trying to dig it out (one of my bad habits) and I realized it wasn’t a hang nail at all. My nail had split, or cracked, really high up toward the middle of my nail. It scared me, naturally, thinking I was going to bleed and have to pull all that nail, and some skin, off. Ick! So, I sat there thinking, “oh no. this is going to hurt SO bad”. lol. Well, I got it to peel off just the top layer. It left me a little thin piece of nail. So thankfully, I did not bleed out or cause myself any unbearable pain. lol. Thank God!

Ok. 🙂 Today’s color is by Color Club. We have an occasion to attend and since I practically “broke” a nail, I cut and filed all the others down. I can’t stand to have one short and the others long. Tacky. lol. So, I thought I’d stay simple and go nudey/natural. Which I really did like the outcome with my short nails. I did one base coat of my “Natural” by SV. And two coats of “Nouvea Vintage” (#922). And then topped it with my SV fast dry top coat. I love the gloss in this stuff!

I hope you like it! Have a great last week of 2011!

Nudey Monday

3 Oct

Happy Monday to you. It’s lunch time. My apologies for being late on new posts. :/ this Uverse thing sucks and the people handling it suck even more. lol. Don’t get me wrong, i love at&t but it’s been crazy. Please forgive me. Lol. Anywho, I was very busy this weekend. I didn’t have time to do more than one mani. I decided to be on the calm side.

So the color is from Color Club boho collection that I got at Ross. What a deal! Normally this 7 pack costs almost $30.00 and I only paid $7.00! So this color is called Nomadic In Nude. I love it! I felt very classy wearing this one.
